Great people, Great scenes, Excellent holiday

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I really enjoyed our stay in this lovely chalet. We loved the view of the mountains. The pool was closed during our stay but that is because its still very cold, but the views on that area is spectacular. Its up to the mountains so driving to get there is the only option really. The view going up and down the mountain is extraordinary. The village is quiet and very nice place to relax. The hosts are amazing, Samuela and Sergio are very friendly and hospitable. We were invited for coffee / tea upon arrival. And we were also invited for drinks and some braschino on our first night. We also would like to mention their friend Frieda, who also welcomed us upon arrival. She speaks English and she answers all our questions. Recommended a restaurant and offered helped with everything. We met the host friends too and their families. We were so happy during our stay. We really appreciate their effort in looking after us and making us feel welcomed. Thank you to everyone we met in Garzeno.

Great little chalet in a friendly village with incredible surroundings

  • 5 of 5

A nice chalet located in an incredibly friendly little village of Garzeno where everyone is so nice we were so very pleasantly surprised. Hosts Sergio and Samuela are amazing, we were regularly invited for coffee, wine and snacks and they were extremely helpful for anything we needed. We also got introduced to a lot of people in the local community and soon after we knew a lot of locals and I cannot emphasise enough how friendly and helpful everyone had been.

The nature around Garzeno is stunning, there are mountain hiking trails nearby, a few restaurants within walking distance and the lake is nearby but you will need a car. With a car, everything is easily reachable (you will need to learn to ride around somewhat narrow streets) so you can plan on visiting the lake attractions while having a place to sleep where it's always a bit cooler over night which is great.

All in all, a very quiet place with nice strategic location and amazing local community. Once again, Sergio and Samuela, thanks for everything!

Wonderfull Chalet in the hills above Lake Como

  • 5 of 5

A lovely well looked after Chalet in an amazing location. The pool certainly lived up to expectation and then some. The bedroom is a bit small for luggage to remain in the suitcase and getting changed in, but their is enough space in the rest of the Chalet. A village store and bakery meant getting breakfast and a pack lunch each morning was a short walk away and great to have on the balcony looking at some of the alpine peaks nearby. Strongly advise getting around by car. Although the road to the chalet goes to a single lane in places getting there was no problem and you are rewarded with some stunning views. It also meant you can walk into/up the mountains and alpine meadows from home and close enough to drive into the high alps. We counted 4 restaurants within 2 miles and several more down in town by the lake.

Our fantastic hosts really looked after us including when we needed help parking. It was lovely to have coffee and grappa with their family and suggested some great areas to consider visiting nearby.

The pictures are a fair reflection of the property and the local sights.

We will definitely want to come back to stay again next time we visit Lake Como and has been our favorite place we've ever stayed.

A relaxing holiday high in the mountains

  • 5 of 5

We spent two weeks staying in Samuela and Sergio's chalet. The chalet is very nice and there are some amazing views from the Pool. Samuela and her husband Sergio are very friendly, hospitable and couldn't do enough to ensure our stay was enjoyable. The family was very open and we're invited for a coffee/drinks on several occasions. On one occasion when the weather was bad they invited our daughter over to play with their children which was a nice thought. There are shops and restaurants nearby but a car is highly recommend to be able to explore all that lake como has offer. If you are looking for a quiet relaxing place then the chalet is ideal and we can highly recommend it. Thanks to Samuela and Sergio for a great stay. Hopefully one day see you again

very nice view and chalet!

  • 5 of 5

The chalet is very nice and the view is amazing. Samuela and her husband Sergio are so nice, helpful and hospitable. The family was very open and we're invited for a coffee after arriving which was perfect after such a long drive. We felt us very welcomed and comfortable. The place is perfect for hiking and it's just a few minutes to the lake and to the supermarkets. It's better to go by car, cause the village is up the mountains. If you are looking for a quite place and be one with the natur, the chalet is perfect for you and we can highly recommend it. Thanks to Samuela, Sergio, Shiba and her sweet little daugthers.

Es war sehr sauber, schön und gemütlich

  • 5 of 5

Schon bei der Ankunft wurden wir herzlich empfangen und direkt zu einem Kaffee eingeladen. Ein holländische Freundin des Hauses wurde als Dolmetscherin dazu gerufen, obwohl wir auch mit etwas italienisch und englisch gut zurechtgekommen sind. Wenn es irgendwelche Fragen oder Probleme gab wurde uns sofort geholfen. Auch die Menschen in dem kleinen Ort selbst waren sehr freundlich. Wir wurden auf der Straße von allen, die vorbeikamen, gegrüßt.

Fazit: Gerne kommen wir wieder, vielleicht auch mal im Sommer.

Grüße Nils & Steffi
