Every season offers something special in the region and in our town. During summer the lake is the focus with boating, swimming and lots of festivals and concerts from May through to October including the Festival Lago di Como. Summer nights are warm and light till late - and everyone is out enjoying a fabulous meal and a late “passeggiata”. Autumn is the season of colours where the wonderful woods and gardens of the lake and surrounding valleys take on their orange, yellow and red hues. Festivals are everywhere – celebrating chestnuts, pumpkins and even witches! A morning of hiking, walking in the woods or mountain biking.

We appreciated the laundry facilities though we had to enlist the help of the neighbors to figure out the washing machine. Excellent instructions for locating the apartment and finding store and restaurants.

                                                                      Fantastic villa in lake como!

The villa is wonderfully appointed with all you could ever want. The view is spectacular from every room! You must have a car but it is easy to get to everywhere. We took the ferry from tremezzo and had some difficulty parking. The meters are only for a max of 2 hours. There is parking further along on both sides of the street that is free all day but go early to get a spot.

                                                                      Owner's Response:

                                                                      Everything great! But there was one thing that really, really was offputting and actually quite disgusting. The balconies we're wonderful however serveral times during our stay while we were sitting there enjoying the view of the lake, the residents or renters above us would pour dishwater or cups of tea & coffee over their balcony onto the grass 3 or 4 floors below. This would pass right in front of us and would often frighten or startle depending on what your doing not to mention potentially killing the grass blow! This was very rude and disrespectful to other renters and demonstrated a contempt for those below! I would stay again as the apartment was wonderful and super clean, but something needs to be said by someone in authority to those residents on the uppper floors doing this!

                                                                      Owner's Response:

                                                                      The apartment is well equipped and everything is of high quality. Nice and clean. Owner and her representative very helpful.

Being so close to Switzerland and the Italian Alps, skiing is an easy option in winter, as is cycling and hiking at lower altitudes. You can enjoy skiing in the Valtellina at the wonderful village of Madesimo; visit Bormia and enjoy their 50 km of ski slopes or take a trip on a dog led sledge; ski the family resort of Chiesa Valmalenco or the wonderful slopes of Livigno. Skiing Switzerland is also an easy option, with San Bernadino just over an hour away and St Moritz a little further. Spring is a true delight as the lake blooms with the warmer weather, the gardens are spectacular and hiking in the nearby valleys and alps is a pure pleasure!
