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.

Car: recommended

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.

Schönes Haus, schöner Garten, aber keine Rücksicht auf Privatsphäre

  • 2 of 5

Unsere Ferienwohnung wählten wir auch aufgrund der Aussicht auf einen schönen großen Garten mit Anschluss an den Luganer See (eigener Zugang vom Grundstück aus). Zugegebener Maßen muss erwähnt werden, dass laut Internet die Feriengäste den Garten mit den Vermietern teilen würden. Damit hatten wir an sich kein Problem. Wir stellten uns vor, dass dort immer mal Familienmitglieder zugegen sein würden, um zu entspannen. Die Realität sah aber so aus, dass in dem Garten während unseres Urlaubs über mehrere Tage Gräben ausgehoben wurden, um Kabel zu verlegen. Auch wurden wir am ersten Tag informiert, dass die Familie während unseres Urlaubs ein Hochzeitsfest im Garten feiern würde. Davon abgesehen war sehr häufig ein großer Hund zugegen, von welchem ich mich sehr belästigt fühlte und vor dem ich Angst hatte. Sehr häufig waren Arbeiter zugegen, schon vom Morgen an, und es fiel uns so schwer, uns im Garten frei zu bewegen, zu entspannen, in Ruhe zu essen, zu lesen oder sonnenzubaden. Wir waren selten allein. Auch hatten wir mitunter den Eindruck, fehl am Platze zu sein. Beim Anfangsgespräch wies man uns freundlich darauf hin, dass doch im Internet angegeben sei, dass die Familie den Garten mitnutzen würde. Doch unserer Meinung nach schließt so eine Angabe über Tage andauernde Bauarbeiten und große Familienfeierlichkeiten nicht ein.

Owner's Response: Dear guests, I'm sorry our accommodation did not completely satisfy your expectations. As you mentioned, our Web announcement clearly says that garden is shared with hosting family. The garden of 1.400 square meters is large enough to allow for owners and guests privacy, also in case of 1 family lunch in a 14 days stay. Regarding the worker in the garden, they stayed there for 1 day only and a limited area was involved.

Piccolo Mondo Paradiso

  • 5 of 5

Man braucht es nicht zu beschreiben, die Fotos sprechen schon für sich. Einer meiner schönsten Urlaubsorte, dem ich sicher lange treu bleiben werde. Wann hat man schon die Möglichkeit, in einem solch herrschaftlichen Haus, in solch einem Park mit direktem Seezugang zu “residieren“? Einzigartig – reizend auch Gabriella, eine sonnige, herzliche Italienerin, die uns empfangen hat und das nächste Mal auch gern mit ihren Kochkünsten beglücken darf. Leider war dazu diesmal keine Gelegenheit. Einzigartig auch die Großzügigkeit und Toleranz von Alessandra selbst, der Vermieterin, die ihren Garten mit ihren Mietern im EG teilt. Ein wunderbarer Ort, um sich zu erholen und Kraft zu tanken! Danke!

Non c'é bisogno descriverlo, le foto parlano già per se. Uno dei miei luoghi di vacanze favorite, al quale saro fedele sicuramente a lungo. Quando si ha la possibilità di risiedere in una casa così signorile, in un parco con accesso diretto al lago? Eccezionale - avvenente anche la Gabriella, una soleggiata e affettuosa Italiana chi ci ha accogliato e che la prossima volta volentieri ci può felicitare con la sua arte culinaria. Purtroppo questa volta non c'era occasione. Straordinario anche la generosità e tolleranza di Alessandra stessa, la padrona, che divide il giardino nel pianoterra con i suoi ospiti. Un luogo meraviglioso, per riposarsi e rifornire forza! Mille Grazie!

Ein sehr schöner Urlaub

  • 5 of 5

Wer einen Urlaub im "Giardino a Lago" in Osteno macht, freut sich die ganze Zeit. Man wohnt in einer geräumigen italienischen Wohnung voller schöner Möbel und Bilder, dazu gehört ein modernes Bad. Das Schönste aber ist der parkähnliche Garten, der zu der Wohnung gehört, mit 26 verschiedenen Bäumen, vielen romantischen Plätzen, einem eigenen Zugang in den See und einem kleinen Balkon über dem Wasser. Wir danken der Besitzerin für die schöne Zeit und können dieses Urlaubsdomizil wärmstens empfehlen.

Traumhaft! Ein Kleinod!

  • 5 of 5

Wir haben drei wundervolle Wochen in Osteno verbracht. Das Garten-Aparment ist leibevoll eingerichtet und für zwei Leute - perfekt. Dazu kommt noch ein wunderschöner Garten mit direktem Zugang zum See. Ein Wohlfühlparadis. Alessandra als Gatgeberin kümmerst sich liebevoll und sehr aufmerksam um ihre Gäste. Ihr zur Seite steht noch Gabriella, die warmherzige gute Seele, der Apartments. Die drei Wochen waren sehr entspannend, aber auch bereichernd. Das leigt vor allem an den wundervollen Menschen, die wir dort getroffen haben. Vom Barbesitzer über die zwei Brüder, die den kleinen Lebensmittelladen betreiben - alles wirklich besondere Menschen.

Vielen Dan liebe Alessandra, das wir deine Gäste sein durften! Wir kommen wieder! Fünf Sterne sind eigentlich nicht genug für die Bewertung, wir hätten gerne mehr vergeben!
