About Sveva

Hi,

My name is Sveva and I live in the beautiful and romantic historic center of Como.

In the year 2010 me and my brother, the architect, decided to renovate the attic above my flat into a modern and exclusive penthouse and now I'm very proud of the result.

I take care of the house in every little detail because I want my guests feel like home.

Decorating homes has always been my favorite hobby and my passion.

I am sure that you will have a unique experience in Como !

Sveva purchased this apartment in 2010

Why Sveva chose Lake Como

I just can write down what the architect said:

' I must thank Sveva for giving me the chance to do what I like best. As an architect I was so happy to give her place a new life. Beauty is in simple things. The site had such strong vibrations and history that only with a plain and fair approach it could turn out in a modern yet friendly house: a perfect place to live. Now that my job is done I can tell that her concern in giving the best she can when it comes to please her guests suits perfectly with the image I had in mind when the project started. I would recommend this solution because it was intended to give friendly and familiar feelings and my sister is working hard to make it concrete.'

What makes this apartment unique

When I saw this house for the first time, I simply fell in love with it for its fantastic position, its atmpsphere and its luminosity.

Como, Italy Best location

  • 5 of 5

This 3 bedroom apartment was excellent. Location could not have been better. Within blocks of everything. Never used the car while there. Apartment was clean and fully equipped in kitchen. Owner, Sveva, was available if we had questions, and provided recommendations for us. The only negative that I would say is the one flight of winding stairs that would be difficult for someone that has any disabilities or flexibility to manuever, and for transporting luggage.

Clean, modern and spacious

  • 4 of 5

We spent 3 nights in Sveva's apartment, Como Sweet Como. First, Sveva was very helpful getting us oriented to the area and how things worked. The apartment was bigger than we needed for 3 people but we knew that going in. Friends of ours had stayed here previously and recommended it and they were right. It was awesome. Our only concern was getting the AC cool enough for us (the thermostat remotes were confusing).

Sveva had wine, fresh bread and cherries waiting for us on arrival. It was a rally nice touch and most appreciated after a rough flight into Milan. Overall we give Como Sweet Como very high ratings and would come back again.

Perfect Getaway

  • 5 of 5

This was an absolutely perfect place for us during our time in Como. Very clean and comfortable. Great location to train and ferries. The owner was so much help - she even picked up us from the station because it was raining.

Lovely, clean apartment in great location close to train station

  • 5 of 5

This was a fantastic spot, and the owner was wonderfully helpful -- picking up our group of 4 at the train station upon arrival, and then taking us back when we left. She provided helpful ideas for our Lake Como boat ride! You can walk to everything in old Como from this location -- shopping, groceries, restaurants and the sights. Would stay here again, hopefully!

Great stay in Como

  • 5 of 5

Recently stayed at Como Sweet Como with friends and the apartment proved very comfortable and well located. Sveva met us on arrival and shows us the apartment and provided excellent local advice. The apartment itself was as listed, well equipped for six people and very well presented. The apartment is on the fourth floor - there is a lift to the third then a tight spiral staircase inside the apartment to reach to living areas. While the staircase is narrow, it did not detract from our stay. The apartment is situated in the centre of como with shops and restaurants all in close proximity and walking distance to the two train stations and the waterfront for cruises on Lake Como. Sveva provides a very comprehensive guide to the local area which proved very useful. All in all, a great apartment in a great location. High recommended

Would give 10 stars if possible!

  • 5 of 5

Como was the last stop of our 12 day tour across Italy and it was absolutely the best. Sveva, the owner, was extremely helpful throughout the reservation process and offered numerous suggestions leading up to our arrival. The apartment was the best of all the places we stayed, with a comfortable gathering area in the living area, comfortable beds, washer and dryer, and all the amenities you could ask for. It's an easy 5-10 minute walk to shops, restaurants, grocery store, etc. Walk to the pier to catch the ferry for Lake Como is about 15 minutes. Sveva also met us at the train station and helped us get to the apartment. There is a lift that takes you to the 3rd floor. The spiral staircase to the 4th floor apartment was a little challenging for a couple of our group with aging knees but we managed. Can't say enough about the stay and the owner...we most certainly recommend both.

Lake of Como
Car: not necessary

The Lake Como is an enchanted place, considered as one of the most beautiful destinations of Europe. A land of picturesque landscapes, flowery gardens and mountains reflecting in lakes basin waters. A portion of Lombardy to be visited and lived intensely, looking for old mansions, botanic gardens, museums and palaces.

Endless natural beauties and an original and fascinating artistic heritage in which three main trends may easily be outlined. The first more garish, is formed by the Lake Como Villas, unique in the world both for their architectural and landscape value and for the treasures they contain. The second, more hidden and cultured, is formed by the incredible concentration in this territory of Romanesque churches, that testify a brilliant and flourishing Middle Age.

The third asset, more evocative and intriguing, consists of the many fortifications of different ages, with with their own asset of anecdotes and legends, reminding of a turbulent and adventurous past .

Other Activities: Seaplane tour

Golf: Lake Como has many golf courses which can be easily reached by car:

* The Menaggio & Cadenabbia Golf Club is a cradle of Italian beauty. A corner reminiscent of Britain overlooking Lake Como. A natural course with old world appeal. A heritage of golfing culture. The elevated position of its course provides a breathtaking view over some of Lake Como’s most beautiful scenery towards Argegno on the one hand and towards the arm of Lake Lecco on the other skimming over Bellagio and the peaks of the Central Alps. Menaggio is a characteristic preAlpine course with holes sloping upwards and downwards.

* The path of the Golf Villa d’Estate was built in 1926. It stands on the hills overlooking Lake Como Montorfano, in a forest of over thirty thousand trees. Chestnut, pine and birch help to create a scenario of outstanding natural beauty.

* The Golf Club Monticello is the most famous names in international golfing have played on this course which has housed as many as 7 Italian Opens.

* The Pinetina Golf Club, seventy hectares of green inside the Pineta Park Appiano Gentile and Tradate with its forests of pine sylvestre, birch, oak and chestnut trees, far from roads, noise and daily stress. Here, on the fantastic 18holes, you can hear the breath of nature, to observe the flight of the falcon and the race of the hare.

*The Golf Club Lanzo set within an age-old beech wood and framed by magnificent scenery, it is extremely challenging on account of its double tee-offs and natural hazard
