The apartment was lovely. Clean, modern and in a great location. But the negatives of the rental far outweighed the actual apartment.

1) Even though the paperwork clearly stated that the last payment could be paid by credit card and that check out time was 12 noon the owner insisted (DEMANDED!) that we pay in cash and that we vacate by 10 AM. He even showed up at 9:40 AM to ensure that we were out. And the cash we gave him hasn't shown up as a credit to our account. I went back to check my correspondence and the listing to make sure I wasn't confused but it is clear as a bell. 12 Noon check out. And credit cards accepted.

2) Knowing that we were going to be traveling in Italy and Switzerland for several weeks I carefully chose an apartment in Como that had a good kitchen and had laundry facilities. I was really looking forward to a couple of home cooked meals and the chance to clean some clothes. I was stunned to find out that our kitchen use was limited to the microwave, coffee pot and two burners. The oven, dishwasher and the remainder of the stove was "off limits." And there were no laundry facilities available. Or if there were it was behind one of those numerous taped closed doors and cabinets which we were instructed not to touch. Again, I checked the listing and there is no mention of limited kitchen access. The access to laundry facilities is clearly advertised.

Como is a nice small city. The lake is beautiful. But I can't recommend this rental.

A wonderful apartment in all respects

Francesca and Matthew, thank you for giving us such a lovely place to stay for our five days in Como. Your beautifully designed and fully equipped apartment provided everything we could have ever needed and wanted for our stay. And right in the heart of wonderful Como. We are very grateful to you... I hope we will one day come back! Paul

Beautiful flat in Como with terrace overlooking the area.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed 3 nights in Como in this flat. We were 2 couples. Plenty of space for all of us. Property is well equipped and furnished. Everything in it is high in quality. Beds were very comfortable - have several pillows of varying types - so think all should find their particular type of pillow to use! The terrace was my highlight though. Enjoyed having breakfast/tea there in the morning overlooking the town of Como and the vistas further away as well as a glass of wine at night as the sun was setting. Just beautiful. We ate out so didn't require use of an oven. There is an oven there, although of "professional quality" and potentially challenging to operate. For us - was not an issue as we elected to dine out but if you are thinking of dining in more and would like the use of the oven I would inquire about those details first. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here while visiting Como. Very comfortable.

Beautiful apartment in a great location.

  • 5 of 5

Family holiday to Como. Stayed in this gorgeous apartment for a week. Welcomed by Alex, Francesca's friend, who was extremely helpful and friendly. The 2 bottles of prosecco were a lovely welcome gift. Very comfortable beds, beautiful views from the balcony, an amazingly equipped kitchen and relaxing lounge. Located in the central pedestrian area of Como, near to good restaurants, bars and shops. A lovely walk through the town to the lakeside. I would definitely recommend this apartment to anyone visiting Como. We can't wait to return. Thank you:)
