Nice house (eclectic/quirky), very welcoming hosts, we had a great 4 night stay
Very nice house, with beautiful garden and large pool
We like the house very much. There is lot of space. The bedrooms were nice and the beds are good. The house has a large garden with a nice terras with lots of shade. The pool is also nice and large. The kitchen Is a little outdated. Overall we had a very good week.
A lovely property in a superb location.
We had a wonderful week at this lovely house in a gorgeous part of Italy. The property is in a very quiet location with easy access to Como and the surrounding area.
The facilities in the property were excellent and everything worked well. There is the added bonus of Tennis courts a short walk from the house, as well as horse riding if you wish.
The local restaurant was first class, if a little expensive.
The pool is a good size and kept very clean.
Most impressive was the kindness and generosity of the owners who were very helpful with any questions we had. Thank you!
Perfect for our needs! A true gem!
A great find, and perfect for our needs! This house was of particular benefit to our group of friends who rented all three bedrooms in the downstairs half of the house while we were in the area to compete in a golf competition at the nearby Circolo Villa d'Este Golf Club (2kms away). This turned out to be the most convenient place to rendezvous upon our arrival, as one would find it difficult to find one's way directly, even with a GPS, since the house lies a kilometre down a gravel path after traversing an electric privacy barrier that one needs a remote for. The gravel path leads past a horse riding centre which had regular competitions that we sometimes stopped to watch.Arriving at the house one has a great sense of exclusivity and privacy away from the hustle and bustle. Not only did we enjoy the extensive garden and pool, but we spent enjoyable evenings grilling barbecues and playing table tennis in the quiet and undisturbed surroundings of open fields, woodland and hills. It was great to get up early and take a refreshing plunge in the generously sized swimming pool that we had entirely to ourselves.
The owners were extremely friendly, welcoming and helpful, and went out of their way to assist (having charcoal ready for us when they knew we were planning to grill, driving us to the best supermarket in the area, going to fetch members of our party from the golf club etc). Upon our arrival little snacks were laid out as welcome appetisers and two bottles of bubbly were waiting chilled in the fridge. On another day we returned to find a locally baked traditional cake of the region left for us as a present to enjoy for our next day's breakfast. However, it didn't make it that long, as by the time we went to bed, it had been polished off!
The only issue I had was the lack of a decent WiFI internet set-up, which I had heard was a problem with many of the rental places in the area. The owners did let us use their iPad which had a dongle connection to a network, so we were able to get online, but not using my own laptop, though it turned out to be a welcome break for me not to be online so much during my stay!
Zeer ruime vakantiewoning met groot zwembad bij Como
Terras, woonkamer, en 3 tweepersoons slaapkamers en de tuin zijn allen zeer ruim, gelegen in een soort natuurgebied, dus veel rust. Toegangsweg gaat via de manege met een toegangspoort die de eigenaren kunnen openen met een afstandsbediening. Na aankomst konden wij de afstandsbediening blijven gebruiken. De keuken is oud en klein. Er is een WII voor spellen, een barbecue, en genoeg bedden en stoelen bij het zwembad. In de buurt is een restaurant (Grillo) en een tennisbaan en een barretje waar je kunt koffiedrinken en heerlijk kunt borrelen (Brusco). In een kwartier zit je in hartje Como. We hebben hier een enorm leuke vakantie gehad.
Ruim huis met mooie tuin en groot zwembad.
Erg vriendelijke, behulpzame eigenaar.
Alles is aanwezig. Goed restaurant op loopafstand.
