Overview

About the property

Romantic and well-kept mansard in a stone rustic located in a mountain village overlooking the lake (Sanico 950 slm). In about twenty minutes you can be in Bellano or Varenna (where there is boarding for Menaggio and Bellagio).

In the northern part of the lake there are the beaches of Dervio and Colico where to sail, windsurf or kitesurf and where there is now also a beautiful swimming pool.

However, you can choose to stay in the mountains to enjoy the cool of a beautiful walk for example in the woods of Pian delle Betulle or to try the excitement of paragliding from Giumello's Alps.

In the winter you can also ski by enjoying the magnificent panorama of the lake below.

At 1h30 from Milan.

Was a perfect peaceful few days in the Mountains

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is very nice and looks exactly as described. It is the perfect location for those who like peaceful environment and want top escape the heat of the lake many tourists in the lake. You can go to trips in the lake area early in the morning when it is cooler and spend the hot hours in the apartment and area. View is wonderful. Local Pizeria provides dinner and amazing view.

Magic in the mountains:)

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here with our two young children and loved it so much we extended our stay! The area is beautiful, breathtaking and peaceful. The apartment is clean, stylish and tastefully decorated with all the necessities. The owners were very helpful and accommodating with our last minute travel plans. They also truely want you to enjoy your stay as the home is special to their family. That in itself speaks volumes! The lady who helps with coordinating arrival and departure details was so pleasant and kind. She neighbours the house and I felt like we had been neighbours for a long time. Thank you to her and the wonderful owners for making our visit to Northern Italy extremely memorable. We most definitely hope to return!

Off the Tourist Path, Wonderful Hosts!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and two small children traveled from the states for a week in Lake Como. First, let me say much of our trip was possible due to the kind help of our hosts. Not only did the owners call and make reservations for us (given the language barrier), they did so over a few week period without complaint. We really appreciated that.

The house is higher on the mountain, as stated in another review, it will take 20mins or so to reach the bottom. The roads can also be a challenge to drive, well especially if you are from New York. Though Como and Bellano are nice to visit, the real charm of our visit was the area surround the house. There are several local farms offering amazing meals (many who source 50% of the meal from their own properties), as well, there is a wonderful wine region just over the other side of the mountain. Lastly, I'd also highlight there is a supermarket about 10mins away, so really no need to constantly go to Bellano.

The apartment itself was more than enough space for our family. They had bunk beds and a pack n play for the baby. There are MANY churches in the area, so yes we did hear bells constantly; however after a day I never really noticed them. View is spectacular though. Lastly, not sure if it's listed in the description, but the apartment has a clothes washer and dishwasher. Also, there were toys there for the kids (blocks, legos), both a big hit.

If you are looking for a very reasonably priced house for the week, away from the tourists of Como, this is your spot.

Super Appartement mit tollem Blick

  • 5 of 5

Wir hatten eine wundervolle Zeit in diesem liebevoll und geschmackvoll eingerichteten Appartement von Alessandra und Ihrer Familie. In der Umgebung kann man so viel machen und Alessandra hat uns viele Tipps für Unternehmungen geliefert. Die Kommunikation verlief reibungslos, herzlichen Dank auch an Maria- Luisa für den netten Empfang. Wir können das Appartement 100% weiterempfehlen und kommen bestimmt wieder.

Sehr schönes und gemütliches Appartment in ruhiger Lage

  • 5 of 5

Wir waren als Gruppe von 5 Personen, eine Woche im April 2017 in dieser Ferienwohnung.

Es war sehr gemütlich dort. Die Wohnung ist in einem recht neuen Zustand. Das Bad ist sauber und top in Schuss.

Die Betten sind gemütlich und bequem. Außerdem waren diese schon mit Bettwäsche fertig bezogen.

Zudem gab es reichlich frische Handtücher.

Die Küche ist bereits mit so ziemlich allem nötigen ausgestattet wie einem Gas-Herd, Elektroofen, Spülmaschine, Teller, Besteck usw.

Was sehr nett ist, dass auch schon Basics wie Olivenöl, Salz, Kaffee usw vorbereitet sind.

Wir waren dort zum Gleitschirmfliegen. Was von der Lage zum Alpe Giumello sehr gut möglich ist.

Sollte es uns wieder an den Comer See ziehen dann würden wir vermutlich wieder versuchen diese Ferienwohnung zu bekommen.
