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.

A perfect place to explore the lake

  • 4 of 5

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!

  • 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.

Großzügige Wohnung mit fabelhaftem Ausblick u, entspannter Ruhe ...

  • 4 of 5

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 !

Owner's Response: 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. The apartment at second floor does not include the garden, as clearly detailed in the description and in the email we send to each of our guest. So, this is something that we cannot improve. For those who want to enjoy garden and direct access to the lake we offer the Giardino a Lago apartment. I'll be happy to host you there! Best regards, Alessandra

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.

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.
