Wir haben eine wunderbare Woche in diesem herrlichen Haus verbracht. Ruhig gelegen in einer gepflegten Parkanlage. Isabella und Fabio sind sehr aufmerksam ohne aufdringlich zu sein. Dieses Haus ist ein Traum - gemütlich eingerichtet und sehr gepflegt und absolut sauber. Es ist alles vorhanden für einen erholsamen Urlaub - auch die Küche ist perfekt eingerichtet. Mailand und andere schöne Orte sind ganz in der Nähe. Viele nette Lokale sind gut zu erreichen. Einkaufsmöglichkeiten sind gleich im Ort. Wir hatten unseren Hund dabei - der sich im Park frei bewegen konnte. Wir kommen gerne wieder und sagen Mille Grazie an Isabella und Fabio.

Isabella and Fabio are great hosts with a big taste for their appartements.

We loved the stay on this huge ground, with a lot of space and its nice interior.

Everything worked, was clean and well organized from A-Z.

Hope to see you soon!

Lovely regards, Katrin, Heinz & Chaka

Great Rental - 5 Stars

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 3 stayed for three nights here and absolutely loved it. The house is perfect for a family with 1 or 2 small kids. We found the online pictures to be accurate of the house, and in many ways the home itself - and the setting - is even more beautiful than the pictures show.

All the equipment and furnishings in the home are very modern and new, which is great. And the setting in what is essentially a large green space could not be better for small kids - there is ample room to play outside for hours.

We found the location to be perfect as we were visiting the lakes and Milan. From the door of the house to Lake Maggiore it is less than 1 hour and from the door to central Milan it's about 45 minutes (short walk to the train station and ~35 minute train ride).

Would definitely stay here again.

Secret Dream-Hideaway !

  • 5 of 5

Well, we don’t think there is enough space to write down how much we enjoyed our stay. The second you pass that iron-work black gate you are transported to a dream. The view is spectacular …

Isabella and Fabio offered a warm and very supportive welcome and made certain, we had absolutely everything we needed for our stay, including a filled fridge. The tasteful interior decoration of the Rocolo makes you feel you are in a 5 star hotel plus everything you would need for a perfect meal in the kitchen.

Most of the time we spent outside, sitting in those deck-chairs enjoying the silence, sunrise with a cup of coffee and every meal, congratulated ourselves on finding such a special place, so different form a hotel room.

We stayed 4 nights together with our dog and highly recommend the Rocolo and promise, you will feel the same way too. Look no further - counting the days we can return.

Great stay in Carbonate!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed 2 weeks in the Roccolo in Carbonate and definitely enjoyed it.

The house is completely new and clean, very well equiped (you have everything just like at home!) with a gigantic garden, great for kids. The house is ideally located - 30min from Come, any lakes easily accessible plus the train station for Milano (30min as well) and very silent.

Fabio & Isabella do everything possible to make your stay enjoyable and are always of good help when it comes to get some piece of advice. I definitely recommend!!
