What makes this apartment unique

Regarded as one of the most charming houses in the village, this property was purchased by my grandfather, a native of the place, in 1959. The house dates back to the second half of 1800. To align the structure to today’s comforts, we often refresh rooms, facilities, garden and furniture without altering the style and the charm of the location. The result is a romantic, charming, yet practical and comfortable house.

Like A Fairytale!

  • 5 of 5

We had two weeks accomondation in this place. Our family (two grownups and two children) had travelled a lot all over Europe and many times by Italy for more ten years and we can definitely compare. This place is one of the best, very beautifull like in a fairytale, quite near to everything and so far to industrial pressure. Our best regards to mrs. Alessandra for her hospitality. Vladimir.

Urlaub in einem idealen Umfeld

  • 5 of 5

Die Unterbringung in der alten Villa in Claino con Osteno, einem beschaulichen Dorf am Lago, verdient die Bestbewertung. Die Lage der Villa mit parkähnlichem Garten ist ideal, das gemietete Apartment ist gut und geschmackvoll ausgestattet, der Kontakt mit der Vermietern gestaltete sich überaus angenehm und freundlich. Dieses Domizil ist unbedingt für einen entspannenden Urlaub zu empfehlen.

Sehr schönes Apartment in traumhafter Umgebung

  • 5 of 5

Unsere Ferien in Claino waren traumhaft:-)) Das Apartment hat eine schöne große Küche mit Balkon und Aussicht, ein modernes Bad sowie ein großes Schlafzimmer. Besonderes Highlight waren die zwei Bars sowie der Lebensmittelladen im Ort mit original italienischem Flair. Ebenfalls empfehlen wir das Abendessen, das von der Verwalterin gekocht und in Apartment gebracht wird.

Die Wohnung ist auch mit einem Pelletofen beheizbar, so dass die Wohnung auch in der kälteren Jahreszeit schön warm geheizt werden kann.

Wir haben 10 wunderschöne Tage in dem Appartement mit Blick auf den Luganer See verbracht. Im Juni ist es dort sehr ruhig und die Lage ist wunderbar. Es ist alles vorhanden, was man braucht - vielleicht fehlt dem einen oder anderen das deutsche Fernsehen. Es sind nur zwei Sender zu empfangen, weil kein Astra-Satellit genutzt wird. Alle anderen können sich über großzügige Wohnung mit guten Betten freuen. Allerdings muss das Gepäck bis in den 2. Stock getragen werden. Wer dabei Probleme hat, sollte bereits bei der Anreise lieber ein Gepäckstück mehr verwenden, um keine schweren Koffer hochtragen zu müssen. Der Weg zum öffentlichen Badeplatz ist nicht weit, so kann man es verschmerzen, keinen eigenen Zugang zum See zu haben. Das Lido ist ein sehr angenehmer kostenfreier Badeplatz. Das Auto kann nicht am Haus geparkt werden, sondern es muss ein Parkplatz gefunden werden - nicht immer einfach. Das Preis-/Leistungsverhältnis für die Ferienwohnung ist sehr gut.

Très agréable séjour

  • 5 of 5

L’appartement au 2ème étage d’une vieille demeure est situé dans un cadre très agréable. Il est très lumineux, bien agencé avec une magnifique vue sur le lac. Le petit balcon autorise deux personnes à prendre leurs repas. Le village en bout de route est tranquille. Un parking gratuit est situé à 300m de l’appartement. Les photographies de l’annonce sont conformes à la réalité.

Cependant, une plus grande cafetière faciliterait la préparation de deux bols de café.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your positive feedback and your suggestion. As for coffee we offer our guests the opportunity to prepare a traditional Italian coffee with a moka for 1 or 3 people. Plus, we offer a medium size kettle for coffee or tea much appreciated by our German guests. For the next season, we will provide a French Press to improve our French guests comfort!

Osteno is the hamlet of Claino con Osteno (province of Como) that lays on the shore of Lake Lugano. This small village (about 300 residents that multiply in the summer season) is not far from more popular and lively touristic destinations, such as Porlezza (6 km away), Menaggio (17 km), Lugano (20 km). This offers the advantage of a relaxing holiday and the opportunity to reach the most celebrated destinations in a few minutes by car. Lake Como – with Menaggio, Bellagio, Cernobbio and the famous villas – are only a half hour drive and so is the elegant city of Lugano, Switzerland. Locarno and Lake Maggiore are 60 km away and Milan is 80 km. The surrounding Pre-Alps offer the opportunity to enjoy walks in the nature and to enjoy wonderful overview of the lakes and Alps.
