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.

Great views from lovely property
This is a spacious, clean apartment in a small town right on Lake Lugano. Delightful small balcony gives stunning views over the lake. Lovely welcome even though we were delayed with our arrival. Property has everything you need (except may be a kettle!) large comfortable bed, large bathroom. Town is small with only a small shop, but this stocks most basics and is great for the fresh break meat and cheese. Larger supermarkets 6km away in Porlezza. You are able to park close by to drop off and load bags, but car parking is a 5 minute walk away in small free public car park. Never an issue getting a space. We would certainly return.
A perfect place to explore the lake
Beautiful apartment with a beautiful view. Lovely little village away from all the tourists but handy to all the sights.
Had a problem connecting to the internet from the apartment but not a problem as we used the Internet at the local bar while having our afternoon refreshments by the lake.
We stayed for two weeks and would highly recommend this apartment.
Like A Fairytale!
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.

Fantastischer Blick auf den See, wunderbare Stille! Wir wurden herzlich empfangen, die Wohnung ist mit allem ausgestattet. Sollte es wie bei uns Anfang Oktober frisch sein steht der Pellet–Ofen bereit!
Sehr gerne kommen wir wieder!
And I will be very happy to host you again! Thank you for your feedback. I’m happy you enjoyed Osteno and the house.
Großzügige Wohnung mit fabelhaftem Ausblick u, entspannter Ruhe ...
Alles was man so braucht , ist vorhanden . das Schlafzimmer ist groß mit Ausblick auf den Garten . Vom "Aufenthaltsraum" mit kleiner Küche geht man auf den kleinen Balkon . Die Aussicht über den See u. die kleine gepflegte Promenade ist sensationell !!!
Leider ist bei dieser Wohnung keine Gartennutzung möglich .
Eine kleine Bar ist ca. 20 m. entfernt , eine zweite ca. 100 m. am ende der kleinen Promenade.
Nach ca.50 m. , um die Ecke , ist ein kleiner Lebensmittelladen in dem man alles nötige bekommt. In Porlezza (6Km) , ein etwas größerer u. sehenswerter Ort , sind einige große Supermärkte . Wer ruhe sucht , mit typisch italienischem Flair , ist hier in Osteno genau richtig !
Dear Antje, it was a pleasure to host a nice guest like you and I'm happy that you enjoyed your staying in our house and in our quiet village. I'm glad to tell you that since 2019, the apartment at second floor includes the access to the garden. Best regards, Alessandra
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.
