Overview

About the property

1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 2

Our apartment is located in the city center and is close to the pedestrian area. It is on the first floor of a quiet building. It is rented full-furnished and simply but tastefully decorated. There is a bright living room with a sofa and the kitchen includes and dining table and chairs, dishwasher, cutlery and utensils. There is also a bedroom with a double bed, a large wardrobe, a chest of drawers and bedside tables. The bathroom has a shower and also is fitted with a washing machine. Linens such as bed sheets, towels, bath mats and dishtowels are provided and changed weekly.

A camping cot for children is also available on request.

It is a clean and well cared for apartment and everything you need is provided, even for just a short stay.

You can also find a hairdryer, an iron, an electric tea kettle.

It is easily accessed by car but because it is also close to the pedestrian area so everything is at your doorstep.

Things to do

Via S. Garovaglio is close to the pedestrian zone of the city where there are many shops, restaurants and bars. Just 5 minutes away there is the funicular railway that you can take to Brunate. There you can go on hikes and treks and it also have a small port where you can go on a boat trip.

There is also a bus station.

The train station, Como North, is only 5 minutes away and from here you can get a train to Milan.

The high lake area is only an hour away by car and because it is windy it is great for windsurfing and canoeing.

For nature lovers there many mountain walks around the town and there are many places where you can enjoy a typical dish of the region.

For architecture lovers there are many interesting and beautiful buildings in Como. Such as la Casa Del Fascio by the architect Giuseppe Terragni. There are also Roman ruins and Rman buildings such as the basilica Sant'Abbondio.

Where to buy food

Roughly 50 meters away there is a grocery store but there is also a supermarket in the same square as the station.

There is a larger supermarket in the city center and this can be found in the COIN department store. From here you can access the Piazza Duomo or Via Boldoni.

Everyone is welcome

So far we have received requests from many different people and we're happy that people from a variety of different countries have shown an interest.

We want our guests to be comfortable and we can assure you that there will be no unpleasant surprises.

In the apartment you will find maps and information about places to visit and trips to go on.

Before our guest's arrive we usually ask them some personal details such as name, surname, date of birth and address. This is to prepare the tourist contract that you'll need to sign at check-in (as Italian law asks to hosts).

We'll send it to our guest in advance, just to have a look of it.

We inform you that the council charge a small tourist tax of €1 per day, per person. (The maximum number of days this charge applies is for up to 4. So if you stay more than four days is the maximum that you will be charged). In winter this tax is € 0,50 per day, per person. So we need to ask you this small tax.

We look forward to hearing from you!

A nice, spacious apartment; very clean with a well-equipped kitchen.

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed having this apartment as our home base in Como. A short walk to shopping and the old historic city made it easy to find our way. We highly recommend this accommodation.

A Perfect Choice!

  • 5 of 5

This is a very delightful apartment with everything you could need for a pleasant stay. The high ceilings helped keep things cool even with warm temperatures outside. The bed was comfortable and the kitchen well supplied. Perhaps best was the location - in just a short walk, five minutes, you are at the plaza with a multitude of shops and outdoor restaurants, a short stroll away is the lakeshore with much to choose from in fine dining, watercraft rentals, a few more steps and you are at the funiculare- a not to be missed ride to incredible views of Lake Como and the Alps. Felt we couldn't have chosen better! Thank you Laura and Valeria for a wonderful stay and great client service!

Good location, nice one bedroom apartment

  • 4 of 5

This one bedroom apartment is located about 350 metres from the Duomo, a half kilometre from the Como Lago Station and 1.5 km from the Como S. Giovanni Station making it an ideal location for visiting Como with or without a car.

The apartment is as pictured. A large combined living room, dining room and kitchen, and a large bedroom with the most closet space I've seen in a rental apartment. The furnishings are simple. The kitchen is well equipped although we did not cook any meals there. The bathroom is long and narrow with the toilet and shower at one end and the sink at the other. It took a while to figure out that you need to run the water a bit to get the hot water tank working. There was a washing machine and dishwasher but we did not use either as there were no instructions left on how to operate them.

The apartment faces the back of the hospital and I had feared that there would be a great deal of noise but this was not the case. The apartment is very quiet and in fact I slept in on several days.

I had prompt communication with the owners, the key was where they had indicated and the whole experience was positive.

Lovely Apartment

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent a week in beautiful Lake Como. The apartment was spacious, tastefully decorated and a perfect location for everything. Just about two short blocks from the Duomo and city center, we walked to everything. There is a lovely cafe just at the end of the block for a nice homemade style meal or cup of espresso or cafe americano, and a great pizza shop just around the corner. Valerie was fantastic at helping us with questions about the area and responded to our emails immediately. If you are looking for a quiet location in an older building, close to everything with some Italian charm, I highly recommend this apartment. Yes, we would come back!

The apartment was very nice. We had a few issues with the WiFi, but Valeria was very responsive and got it worked out.
