About Manuela Pessani

My name is Manuela, my husband Donato and I, love Como Lake. In 2007 we bought this old house, to which we are very fond of, and with love and respect we have renovated it.This house has so much story to tell. It was built at the beginning of 1900 as a barn, and over the years has become home. We have it furnished with care, following our tastes and also using objects that have a story to tell and sweet memories.

Manuela Pessani purchased this apartment in 2007

Absolute perfection!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed in Manuela's lovely place, and I can't sing her praises enough. It truly felt like an oasis, and I often pretended that I'd left all the madness of my real life behind, and this was my new home... First of all, it's so quiet and peaceful. When I opened the windows, I heard nothing but birds chirping and the waterfall (that we had a view of). A lovely garden with tomatoes and peppers provided a beautiful salad daily, as well as a perfect place for an afternoon nap. We didn't have a car, so the walk up and down the steps to the water got us in great shape! Manuela was so helpful every step of the way; from our very first inquiry to helping us navigate the bus system back to Milan. She was an absolute joy. Don't hesitate to stay in this spotless and charming home. I'm already looking forward to coming back next year!

Absolutely Excellent

  • 5 of 5

After traveling thru Italy for a week & staying at hotels & apartments, we arrived in Moltrasio for a relaxing 6 days at the end of our trip. Manuela & Donato's property is just the best place you will ever stay. It's located up a quiet street overlooking Lake Como, with a waterfall view out the bedroom window. It is modern, completely equipped & spotlessly clean. It even has a parking spot for your car....try & find that at any other property in Italy. When we arrived, Manuela spent time with us going over everything we needed to know about the house & area. She even had fruit, cheese & water in the refrigerator for us. There is a small market & fabulous restaurant, Fagiano, just down the street. Also there is a small local's bar at the bottom of the hill. Manuela & her husband Donato were charming hosts, & we look forward to returning as soon as we can. You can't find a better value & location in all of the Lake Como area.

Authentic italian holiday...

  • 5 of 5

We had some very relaxing days at Lake Como. The apartment of Manuela e Donato is absolutely charming and came with everything we needed. Our hosts provided us with a lot of useful information on day trips and hiking toutes. Moltrasio is a lovely Italian village with two small supermarkets, two bars (please enjoy Italian aperitivo, Sprizz, Milano-Torino, Negroni etc.) a excelent Lido and restaurants of all price ranges (we enjoyed the Trattoria del Fagiano the most).

We highly recommend a stay at Manuela's and Donato's place.

Thanks Ariane and Max
