About The Owner

I live on the south coast of England with my husband. I love all things Italian; the art, culture, architecture and especially the warm- hearted and friendly people who make us feel very much at home in their beautiful country. I enjoy taking my son's dog Obi, the cutest Shiba Inu, to the New Forest for long walks and playing frisbee!

The Owner purchased this apartment in 2007

Why The Owner chose Musso

Having spent some years visiting northern Italy, it was love at first sight when I saw Lake Como. I loved the idea of owning a property in a friendly Italian community, where I could practise my Italian. To hear the local church bells ring and the fragrance of incense in the air with the dramatic and ever changing views of lake and mountains makes for a unique holiday that I have not experienced anywhere else in the world.

What makes this apartment unique

A large terrace with balcony is an excellent place to enjoy a morning cappuccino or a spot of sunbathing and an excellent place to capture an early morning photograph of a spectacular sunrise over the mountains with the lake in view. A private enclosed downstairs paved garden area is ideal for sitting and eating 'al fresco'. Shutters afford shade to all rooms and the traditional construction of the villa ensures the apartment stays cool in the summer and warm in the winter. Comfortable mattresses ensure a good night's sleep. A modern boiler gives unlimited hot water for showers and keeps the apartment cosy in cooler months. Satellite HD TV is installed with English channels to help you keep in touch with the rest of the world if you wish..
