About Alessandro Sironi

We are a local family in love with Lake Como. We purchased this beautiful house years ago and we have renovated it much dedication, making it comfortable without altering its charm.

Alessandro Sironi purchased this house in 1998

Why Alessandro Sironi chose Lake Como

Our jobs do not allow us to use the house in the summer, therefore we like renting to select guests.

What makes this house unique

Our house is special! Nothing in common with the typical renatl houses: cold and impersonal.

In addition to having a unique charm, the house enjoys a fantastic location. As you step in you will notice the great care we took in saving as much as we could from the original building: from the stone walls to the century old wooden ceilings.

Has potential. Could be cleaned up. Owner said he would send information regarding the area but unfortunately we never received it. The area is beautiful with local resturant called Bar Italia where the food was fantastic and service was great. Filled with locals. Como is fantastic.

So much more impressive than I imagined!- What an amazing place!

  • 5 of 5

I picked this place based solely on the great reviews, as the pics looked fairly gloomy.

I just had a feeling it would be good, but boy was I surprised when I got to the Gate and rang the buzzer to get in.

Through the gate I could see the most amazing gardens and an extensive view, far nicer than I could have imagined, and the house when shown through was just stunning!

It has so much character, a rather grand feel to it, and the views from every room are spectacular!

It was fitted out nicely, and very comfortable.

The only thing I would recommend would be some new pillows as some of them were very flat, but only a minor point!

Oh, and a can opener, as we really needed one and there was not one there!

The location was great.

Approx half and hour drive to Bellagio, and in the other direction approx 10 mins to Como so accessible to supermarkets and to venture to other places too!

One activity we would highly recommend would be to hire a boat in Bellagio and go out on the lake!

It was one of the highlights of our trip!

it cost 70 euro for one hour, or 140 for 3 hours.

Had we known how much fun it would be, we would have gone for 3 hours!

I would highly recommend this place.

The hosts were lovely and helpful too!

Be assured, that when you turn up here, you will be most impressed!

  • 5 of 5

"The house was delighful, clean and comfortable with wonderful views of the lake, especially from the top bedroom,, the balcony and the garden. There's a bit of noise from road traffic in the mornings and early evenings but it's not a problem. We had good instructions from the owners to find the house."

"I would highly recommend...

  • 5 of 5

"I would highly recommend this house! Don't expect the usual boring hotel or villa style accommodation, this house is full of character and has a real 'lived-in' feel about it but it has all the appliances and conveniences you need. Our group of 5 adults stayed here in early September and we all fell in love with the place. The house is much bigger than it looks in the photographs and has large garden on two levels. All the bedrooms have lake views which is stunning.

There was a festival on in Torno village (2 minute walk away) which was great. Como town is well worth a visit, we also drove into Milan (50 minutes) for the day. Switzerland is only a 30 minute drive away and some great walking terrain.

We would definitely stay at this house again. The owner speaks English which made booking etc easy"

"I spent a week at Via Ro...

  • 5 of 5

"I spent a week at Via Roma with my friend & my mum. We found the house to be very spacious, clean & tidy. It has a comfortable & relaxed feel to it & has been lovingly restored to provide the perfect mix of rustic charm & modern convenience. There are a variety of outdoor seating areas some of which are covered which allowed us to spend lots of time outside even when it rained! The view from the house & garden is simply stunning.

The house is on the main Como-Bellagio bus route & there is a bus stop very nearby. There is also boatstop which can be reached in 5 mins (downhill!) The excellent public transport service means that you really don't need a car to explore the lake & it's environs. (Although if you do have one the house has it's own parking space.) Alessandro's mum Patrizia met us off the bus & showed us around the house - it was lovely to receive such a warm welcome.

Torno is a very pretty little town with a few hotels, a couple of bars, a small supermarket, pasticceria, bank, petrol station, newsagent, chemist, etc. As with many of the lakeside towns, there are lots of steps to negotiate so it may not be an ideal choice for those with very small children, the elderly or infirm. We loved the Belvedere restaurant by the harbour for it's lovely relaxed atmosphere, friendly staff, superb views & good food.

We were all sad to leave & agreed that we couldn't have made a better choice of accommodation & wouldn't hesitate in returning."

Excellent séjour

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé un excellent séjour en famille.

Alessandro est très souple et aidant.

La maison sur 3 étages est charmante, le jardin très appréciable.

Place de parking devant la maison.

Wifi parfait.

Pas de problème de bruit de la route pour nous...

La place de l'église sur le port est charmante, faire la sortie de messe avec l'apéro au bar à côté, typique !

Les enfants veulent y retourner :-)

Merci Alessandro

Torno is a small, charming little town not far from Como. Very picturesque, authentic and offers many activities. In addition to bars, restaurants, shops and the convenience of the location Torno is distinguished by the value of both the natural environment of Lake Como and the architecture of the beautiful historic centre. The house enjoys an ecxellent location: on one side it has direct access from the street and adjacent private parking, on the the other it lies within the pedestrian village. At 5 minutes from Como by car, the house is also a 5 minute walk from the new 5 * luxury hotel Il Sereno offering bars, restaurants and SPA.
