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.

piccolo gioiello tra lago e monti

  • 5 of 5

La mansarda è al secondo e ultimo piano di una casa in sasso nella frazione di Sanico, piccolo paesino a 1000 m di altezza. C'è una splendida vista del lago e dei monti circostanti e un silenzio perfetto per chi vuole leggere, rilassarsi e fare belle passeggiate nella natura. La casa è molto funzionale, calda e accogliente e arredata in modo semplice e con buon gusto. Molto accogliente e disponibile è anche Marialuisa, la signora che ci ha accolti. Anche la proprietaria è stata cortese e rapidissima nella risposta. La casa pulitissima e fornita di tutta la biancheria, nonché delle attrezzature necessarie per la cucina. Consiglio vivamente questo posto per chi è in cerca di una salutare pausa di relax.

Très bon séjour à Sanico

  • 4 of 5

Le logement était en tous points conforme aux attentes, joli, pratique et bien équipé.

Très bon accueil de Maria Louisa, qui s'est toujours rendue disponible. Le petit village de Sanico est authentique et c'est très calme. Chouettes randonnées à faire au départ du chalet + il ne faut pas oublier de monter à l'Alpe Giumello, qui offre une vue imprenable sur le lac presque dans son entier. Il est également possible de visiter Bergame, jolie ville au centre historique qui vaut vraiment le détour (1h15 de route);

Sanico est un camp de base idéal pour découvrir le lac de Côme tout en échappant à l'affluence touristique.

A wonderful place for people who love silence, peacefulness, nature and view.

From the balcony you can enjoy a wonderful view of the lake and Mennagio. The house is very beautiful and professionally restored, the mandarda is designed with attention to detail, modern and brigth, exudes a warm and cozy atmosphere. Everything is there, what you need, even washing machine and dishwasher. The owners were extremely friendly and helpful, thank you Alessandra & family!

Also the neighbor Maria Luisa, who lives next door and was our local contact person, thank you too Marialuisa & family :-) The little village Sanico is a wonderful peaceful location to go hiking directly from the house, far away from tourists and noise. Spectacular views from many points. You should love it to drive with your car on many small winding roads.

We will come back for sure.
