Fantastic location and comfortable apartment!

  • 5 of 5

This charming apartment was ideal for the two of us and centrally located in City Centre. We felt apart of the local neighborhood filled with great restaurants and shops close by. Upon arrival Giovanni made us feel at home providing recommendations for dining and local attractions. He also provided us with a private tour of Roman artifacts located within the apartment building....just ask you will be pleasantly surprised!

We fell in love with Como and loved our view overlooking the Menizzi Piazza. We will definetly return and would highly recommend Blustella to friends and family!

great location, beautiful apartment and helpful owner

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was in a great location, close to the lake and within easy reach of the station. It overlooked a square but wasn't noisy. The air conditioning was great as it can get hot, especially at night. Giovanni was a great host - he lives in the apartment above and was happy to answer any question we had. He also left useful information in the apartment such as a map and details of things to do.

Lovely property in good location

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely open plan apartment close to the centre of Como. Within walking distance of both railway stations. In the heart of the old town close to a variety of restaurants.

Giovanni who met us was very welcoming and helpful and the arrangements for handing over keys worked well.

The apartment has been refurbished with attention to detail and we found it very comfortable. Very clean with good appliances.

I would recommend this property and would love to stay there again.

Wonderfully situated delightful apartment

  • 5 of 5

The listing and the pictures accurately describe this apartment, its location, amenities, and layout. Tastefully decorated and very clean, it is fully furnished. The bed is comfortable, and the kitchen and bathroom were appropriately stocked, with written manuals for all of the appliances. There was a heat wave during out stay (temperatures in the 90s) and the air conditioning worked perfectly. The apartment appeared to be almost new. The manager met us upon our arrival and was very helpful with information about the apartment, the neighborhood, and the Lake Como region. He also was immediately responsive when we texted inquiries during our stay. There is a delightful piazza below with several restaurants, and many many more within two or three blocks. We would highly recommend this apartment to friends or to anyone, and hope to come back ourselves!

Lombardy ( Lombardia) is one of the twenty regions of Italy. The capital city is Milan. One-sixth of Italy's population lives in Lombardy the most populous and richest region in the Country and one of the richest in the whole of Europe.

The climate of this region is continental, though with variations depending on altitude or the presence of inland waters. Lake Como weather is generally mild. It is known for its Mediterranean-like climate where tropical and sub-tropical plants can grow year-round. In the winter, the lake helps to maintain a higher temperature in the surrounding region.

Old town centre of Como is only for pedestrians so that you can enjoy strolling about the small streets (via) or sitting by cafeterias in the squares (piazza), steeped in the town's every day’s real life.

Como is really picturesque: shaped as in a grid inside the medieval walls, everything is at hand though, from restaurants to shops and supermarkets.

During Summer you can enjoy bathing at Villa Olmo's swimming pool (Lido) which is at the left end of the lake promenade at 15-20 mins walking distance from the apartments.

In two minutes walking you can get to the lake promenade, boat jetties, railway and bus stations and Brunate's funicular (cable-rail). There is good train service to Milan (about every half hour) as well as major exhibition centres such as Fiera Milano Rho.

There is also a good service from Malpensa Airport to Como (Malpensa express train): change at Saronno to Como.

In town there is a wide choice of typical restaurants, pizzerias and shops and also markets, museums, banks, pharmacies, and supermarkets.
