About the property

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!

Beautiful area

  • 4 of 5

We recently stayed with family and friends at this house. It was a little more isolated than we realized with a 1km walk to the nearest alimentari, and 2 km walk to the ferry dock. However, it was peaceful with amazing views. We loved the patio and grilled out there a few times.

The living areas in house are super comfy and the kitchen was really well-appointed. We were especially happy to have a filter coffee machine ;-)

We had a few minor questions and issues during our stay and the owners we very quick to respond to e-mails.

Très agréable séjour

  • 5 of 5

Située à 40 minutes par la route de Côme la villa est très agréable avec une splendide terrasse avec vue imprenable sur le lac .

Dommage qu il n'y ai pas une place de parking attitrée avec la maison

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!
