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.

prima appartement

  • 4 of 5

mooi uitzicht. Schone en complete woning.

jammer dat bij aankomst de verhuurder niet aanwezig was. hierdoor hadden enige kleine ongemakken voorkomen kunnen worden. Werd telefonisch en met hulp van buurman opgelost.

Verder prima.

Casa bellissima a cui non manca proprio nulla e con una vista spettacolare. Appena entrata mi sono sentita a casa perché è molto accogliente...è proprio a due passi dal lago e c'è il posto auto privato, che è fondamentale vista la zona. Tornerò sicuramente perché mi sono rigenerata

séjour familiale

  • 4 of 5

Appartement propre, cosy et bien équipé. La vue sur le lac est splendide. Nous avons séjourné 5jours. L endroit est très calme pas de route sous les fenêtres et place de parking privé très apprécié. Les propriétaires Laura et Vladimiro sont très gentils et très avenants sur ce qu'il y a à faire sur le lac de Côme.

La vue est magnifique sur...

  • 5 of 5

La vue est magnifique sur le lac, c'est très proche pour aller se baigner et vraiment calme et reposant. La décoration est de très bon goût et l'environnement des plus agréable.

The view over the lake is beautiful, very close to the lake for a swim, peaceful and relaxing. The decoration is really stylish, and the environment so lovely.

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.
