Guestbook comments from the owner

We have a great vacation in Como this summer.

We choosen the Como Centrale apartment to spend our vacations in Lombardia. This place have an excellent location, two steps from old Como city, very close to ferry and rail station.

Como Centrale not have a parking, it is more suitable for travelling without a car.

It was very nice and comfortable to get information and book the apartment. A team of Happy Holiday Homes responds quickly to mail, and provide full details about the property and attractions in the area.

We've stay in Como for 9 days, we had enough time for long walks in the unique Como, and also to get to Milan; Bellinzona and Lugano in Switzerland; Bellagio, Lenno, Cernobbio and some other villages on the Como Lake.

A Como Centrale apartment is beautiful, designed in romantic style. The apartment is equipped with everything necessary for a comfortable stay. We arrived in Sunday night, and a cordial owner prepared some milk for our baby and a wine for us. It was very very "to the point"!

The only lack in the apartment is an absence of air condition, it can be very hot in the summer. Although, may be in this historic building is not allowed to put air conditioning.

In general, Como Centrale is strongly recommended - a beautiful apartment,comfortable and well located. Good price and great host!

4 star apartment once you get in the door!

  • 4 of 5

The apartment itself is fine. However the local management team leaves a lot to be desired. They don't use the Homeaway messaging system for some reason, but instead flood your email system with repetitive messages. Once we arrived at the 4pm checkin time, we couldn't get in - the locking system required an additional key that apparently the cleaner has and had left the apartment locked, and the 5 phone numbers they provided referred me to each other, rather than coming to let us in. After about 90 minutes of repeated calling - including a suggestion that we would go to a hotel and send the owner the bill - the cleaner showed up and let us in - and demonstrated that the unit wasn't even ready for us!

Having said that, the apartment was clean and functional, and the welcome packet of prosecco, milk and pastries was much appreciated. The apartment is just 10 minutes walk from the train station (though not the main station), and is very convenient for trips on the lake. It looks onto an inner courtyard, so is pretty quiet as well.

This apartment is in a very central location close to the centre of Como and the lake within walking distance of everything. Apartment was well equipped with everything you need. The company was great providing detailed information on everything you could want to do in the area.

Очень романтично

  • 5 of 5

Очент милая квартира в старинном доме в двух шагах от исторического центра. Красиво обставлена, есть все необходимое. Нет парковки, но мы пользовались общественным транспортом - в радиусе нескольких сот метров есть останвки автобуса, поезда и кораблика! Мы катались по всему озеру, ездили в Милан и в Швейцарские Беллинцону и Лугано - на поезде. Для семьи из 4 человек тесновата. Нет кондиционера. Во время нашего отпуска уже стало прохладно, ночью спали с открытыми окнами, так что он и не понадобился. В целом - прекрасное место, где приятно находиться, и откуда удобно добираться до всех достопримечательностей.

Other Activities: Boat Rentals/Charters, Float Plane/Helicopter,Funicular Railway,Public Villas & Gardens,

Golf: There are Golf clubs around Lake Como: The Cadenabbia & Menaggio Golf Club and is Italy's oldest golf course.

Green Fees: Weekdays €55, Weekends and Holidays €70 Euros; Golf Cart Rental €36.

Restaurant Golf at the club serves fantastic food and is well recommended.. Guests are always welcome, please call beforehand to check course rules. Golf Club Menaggio: (Menaggio Como).

Ski: This beautiful lake region of Italy is not the best for skiing as you may imagine, despite its scenery, crisp air and near perfect visibilty and mountains capped in winter snow. It does however have Skiing opportunities at local resorts for a day out.

There is a small ski area on Mt. Lema, not more than 10 km from Lugano, but you have to be lucky to have enough snow for skiing. In Ticino, the local Swiss Canton, the best places to ski are probably either San Bernardino (south of the pass of the same name) or Airolo (south of Gotthard pass). Both are reachable in about 1 hour by car across the Swiss border.

There are direct trains to Airolo as well from Lugano and hence from Italian Stations. To S. Bernardino there is only a bus connection. For more snow try Andermatt (on the north side of Gotthard pass) which has normally good snow conditions and a good choice of runs.

The closest major ski resorts are St. Moritz and Madesimo toward the Splugen Pass which is approx. 100K
