Lezzeno House Rental Photos and Description

Beautiful Italian house with breathtaking view on lake Como

Welcome to Casa Fitzcarraldo: our 8 (or 10) person family home that we bought in 2000 and cherished ever since.

The over 100 years old, rustical and pleasant house lies in a quiet old 'borgo' (village) some 100 meters above the lake.

By now we spent many holidays with family and friends in Casa Fitzcarraldo. And... we love it when others enjoy this lovely house and beautiful surroundings with us.


Strall around on the market and buy prosciuto, formaggio, prosecco for on the lake-view terrace

Taste the wine, the olive oil and the many specialties from the region

Hike in the mountains, experience nature

Book tickets for an open-air opera in the Villa d'Olmo

Enjoy a refreshning dive in the lake, relax on the shores and enjoy your company

Cycle to the church of cyclists at Madonna di Ghisallo

Search for coolness in the shade on the terrace and just read a book

Stay awake all night under the stary sky an look at the magical scene created by the lights around the lake

Do...not want to go home anymore!

Authentic Italian house with view on Lake Como
average rating of 5.0 based on 9 reviews

Best place to check Lake Como!

  • 5 of 5

We've visited Fitzcarraldo several times over the last years. Always something new to see or just relax and enjoy the house and surroundings.

From the house the lake is only a couple of steps away. It's safe for childeren to swim from the small beach in front of the house. Even in October swimming conditions can be good.

The house is traditional Italian but offers modern services. The garden is well equiped and offers great (changing) views at the lake.

We will be back!

Typically Italian, few steps from Lake Como

  • 5 of 5

I spent a long weekend in this authentic Italian "borgo" (hamlet) at Lake Como.

The apartment is well furbished, cosy, and offers enough space for an entire family. Especially the terrace with BBQ is magnificent to enjoy warm summer evenings outside.

The scenery and views from the terrace of the apartment are just stunning and it takes few minutes to reach to the lakeside where you can take a canoe or motor boat, swim, or just relaxed on the little beach.

Within 30 minutes drive some very nice places like Bellagio and Como can be reached and the surroundings are full of authentic Italian restaurants. Consider as well a boat trip to discover the other edge of the lake!

Cosy House at Unique Location

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay from start to finish and especially appreciated the typical Italian atmosphere in the village and the amazing view from the terrace over the lake of Como. The house is well equipped and has an authentic vibe, we especially enjoyed the fireplace during a fresh evening. Parking is a challenge in the village but there is a space provided right in front of the doorstep of the house. We strongly recommend the place if you wish to have a romantic stay with a breathtaking view. Thanks for this great weekend, we will be back!

Amazing view, Italy at his best!

  • 5 of 5

Dear family de Kraa,

Thanks for having us! What a great place is Fitzcarraldo! After a long trip from the Netherlands, we got a very warm welcome from the neighbour! What a stunning view, unable to describe the beauty of it! We enjoyed the best food, so many delicious restaurants closeby, but we also loved cooking at home or BBQ with the kids. Also loved swimming in the lake! Our children loved the big attic room!

Will come back for sure!!

Warm regards from Utrecht

Most beautiful view in the world!

  • 5 of 5

Dear family De Kraa,

Thank you very much we could stay in your house! We had a wonderful time and enjoyed Lake Como and surroundings. We visited Bellagio, Como and the mountains, took the canoes out onto the lake, but also just enjoyed the amazing view from the terrace. The authentic atmosphere of the house is unique and we found everything we needed available. We will return to Casa Fitzcarraldo in the future for sure!

Kind regards from Valencia
