About Laura

This dates back to where my husband´s great grandfather transformed the Florence Hotel into some habitable accommodations. In 2002, we renovated the flat, I am a freelancer with a passion for design, and I have furnished and revolutionized the flat.

Laura purchased this apartment in 1940

Why Laura chose Carate Urio

The motivation that has led me to rent this home was the birth of our child that has made our romantic holiday home a bit smaller.

Map

Car: necessary

Take the A9/E35 motorway towards Como/Chiasso (road with partial toll). Take the Como North exit to enter the SS340, at the roundabout, take the 3A exit and stay on SS340. Then, turn right towards Via Cristoforo Colombo, take the first right parallel to Via Cristofo Colombo and then left to enter Via Alessandro Volta. Continue onto Via Mario Sironi, then turn left and enter Via Alessandro Volta, continue on Via Mario Sironi, take a right and enter Via Alemanni. Careful! It is a pedestrianised street; you have to park at on Via mario sironi. You walk up to ten steps and the first gate that you will find on the left is your residence at the wonderful Florence.

In this typical town, you can find two restaurants that are among the best in the area, both with a lake view. Choose between a traditional cuisine typical of the lake, and an Italian cuisine reinvented for modern times by a young and promising Italian chef. It is possible to take long walks or to take the boat and enjoy with an appetizer at the Bellagio, or even go shopping to Cernobbio. You can also visit the Duomo Piazza in Como; in short, nothing is missing.

The perfect Lake Como hideaway

  • 5 of 5

After a long day of travel from the Cinque Terre coast we were warmly welcomed by Vladimir and Laura to their beautiful apartment with amazing balcony and views. They took the time to help us get there from a missed bus stop :) and make sure we had everything for our stay including supplies for dinner that night. The town of Carate Urio is lovely and many lovely and friendly helpful people there. Our neighbors especially! The ferry stop is a short walk down the road, market close for cooking in the very efficient kitchen , and you can walk town to town to find some intriguing trails that can take you up into the mountains above the villages. Can't say enough about how much we enjoyed our visit here and thank the owners for sharing it with travelers like us.

Très belle région

  • 5 of 5

Appartement confortable, très propre avec une vue magnifique sur le lac.

Parking privé avec la location. Indispensable car très peu de places de stationnement autour du lac.

Je recommande cette location

Un petit écrin italien.................

  • 5 of 5

Avons apprécié l'accueil et la location conforme à nos espérances ainsi que l'attention de nous avoir mis à disposition des spécialités typiques au lac de Côme. Le plus de cette location

est son balcon qui vous donne une vue d'ensemble sur le lac et ses petits villages typiques. Appartement décoré avec gout et fonctionnel, que du bonheur. Sa situation géographique est proche de toutes visites ou commerces.
