Why Riccardo chose Lierna
The house was founded as a small investment property and is currently rented for short periods for tourism because we love meeting people from every country and help them to discover and share with us the beauty of our land.
What makes this House unique
The cottage is situated in an ancient hamlet of Lierna with cobbled roads.
100% refund if canceled at least 30 days before arrival date. 50% refund if canceled at least 14 days before arrival date.
We have found that the best way to judge a home is based on reviews of the hosts.
If Homeaway had a Superhost category, Fausto and Fio (Ricardo's parents) would be at the top of the list.
They met us at the train station and superbly described all the things to do in Lierno and around Lake Como.
Since we arrived on a Monday, when shops and restaurants are closed, they gave us food to make dinner, which lasted the entire stay. They even came by to check on us before we left.
The apt is fully furnished, very clean, and with everything you need. Bed is comfortable.
A bit of an uphill walk from the center of town (by the lake), but the exercise did us good.
Thank you Fausto and Fio.
Dears Craig & Elaine thanks a lot for your kind review , we've been very happy to meet and host you and it would be very nice to meet you again in the future . We wish you the best of life ! Cheers Fio Fausto and Riccardo
Lovely quiet Location, Very Relaxing!
Just returned from a lovely stay at Chiocciola House. If you are looking for a quiet relaxing stay then this is the place. We arrived by train from Bergamo which was an easy journey with 1 change in Lecco. The owners meant us at the train station and drove us to the house. We did a little check in, they had prepared a folder containing maps and information for the local area including details of shops in the village, train/ferry times, walking routes in and around the village and general information about recycling etc. It was a nice touch. It was a well equipped house with nice open plan kitchen/living room, shower room and two bedrooms. The house is located in near the top of the village and it was about 15 minutes walk into the village or to the beach. The beach was lovely with a little bar where you could get food/drinks, hire sunbeds etc. The village has two main restaurants, both were good and reasonably priced. There was a small supermarket in the main village with a good selection as well as a nice bakery/shop just around the corner from the house. It is not very touristy but we preferred this over the more busy resorts such as Bellagio and Varenna, both of which we visited for days out but ferry and train. Overall a lovely relaxing stay which was made all the better by the owners who went out of there way to make us feel welcome.
It's been very nice to meet Jessica and her husband. They are very friendly and polite guest and let the house in perfect order. We hope to host them again in the future Riccardo

Parfait à tout point de vue !
L'accueil des propriétaires, qui parlent très bien français, est extrêmement chaleureux et sympathique. Ils sont disponibles et de bons conseils. Ils nous ont proposé d'excellents produits locaux (fromages de chèvre et miel). La maison est fonctionnelle, fraîche, très propre et bien équipée. Les commerces sont accessibles à pied en moins de 10 minutes. Lierna est idéalement située pour visiter la région. Nous avons circulé à pied, en train et en bateau. La voiture n'a pas bougé de la semaine ! Lierna se parcourt à travers ses ruelles pavées de galets qui serpentent dans la ville. La gare est à 10 minutes à pied, le bateau peut se prendre à Lierna ou Ravenna qui est à 8 minutes de train. Un vrai confort pour se déplacer.
La plage de Riva Bianca, très agréable, est à 15 minutes à pied. Bonnes pizzas à dévorer sur la plage provenant de pizzeria proche de la plage !
La région est magnifique : Bellagio, Ravenna, Villa Carlotta, Corenno Plinio, Bergamo, notamment, ont fait notre bonheur.
Chemins de randonnée accessibles au départ de Lierna, également.
Pour résumer, Lierna est le lieu idéal pour visiter la région et la sympathie des propriétaires participe à l'excellent souvenir que nous garderons de notre séjour !
