Great vacation house near Como

  • 5 of 5

We had been there with our 3 children

the appartment was very comfortable for us all.Rooms ,linen and towels were clean.

the location is great - out of the city in a very quite place. near shopping center (in which we found also great chinese restaurant...)

The yard is big and includes trampoline, Hammock and even sometimes the horse and goat shows behind the fence which the children liked it very much.

the owners are a very lovely and kind couple that do their best to assist when ever needed.

so, if you need a place in that area, do not hesitate.

Francesca and Gregoria are the perfect hosts.

  • 4 of 5

"Francesca and Gregorio (Greg) could not have been more helpful to us, during both the booking stage and while we were there.

They are lovely people, there when help is needed, but not at all intrusive.

There is a bus service from the end of the drive into Como, which operates from erly til quite late.

Wi-Fi signal was strong and the 2 storey apartment, was comfortable.

Safe, secure parkiong was very good for us, as our car was full, as we were on a very long journey to Malta.

We would have no hesitation in returning.

"The house and its ground...

  • 5 of 5

"The house and its grounds are lovely and the owners (who speak very good English) are very friendly, helpful and welcoming. The only noise is from goats in a neighbouring field and cuckoos in the trees. A car is almost essential but there are good bus services nearby and trains to Como and Milan from Portichetto (4km). I stayed here for 2 months. Lots to do nearby, I hope to see Francesca and Gregorio again!"

Waren über Ostern bei Signora Francesca und Ihrem Mann und waren sehr zufrieden.

Alles war bestens, es gab keinen Grund zur Klage.

Die Gastgeber sind äußerst hilfsbereit und freundlich und sehr bemüht, dass man sich wohl fühlt. Die Ferienwohnung ist schön eingerichtet und erstreckt sich auf 2 Etage, was ihr sehr viel Charme verleiht. Besonders positiv zu erwähnen ist die Sauberkeit. Wir haben noch nie eine Ferienwohnung angetroffen, die so wunderbar sauber war. Ganz, ganz großes Kompliment! Da fühlt man sich direkt wohl.

Villa Guardia liegt 5 Minuten von der Autobahn, unweit von Mailand, Como ist ein Katzensprung. Besonders schön, fanden wir, die Lage unserer Unterkunft. Quasi mitten im Ort, nur 50 bis 100 m neben der Hauptstraße, wo man schon denkt, das kann nicht sein, da kommt nix mehr. Doch dann kommt das Tor und man befindet sich in der "Oase der Ruhe", die man in dieser eigentlich sehr umtriebigen Region eigentlich gar nicht erwartet.

Wir waren drei Personen plus Hund. Für die Hundehalten unter den Lesern: direkt vom Haus kann man losgehen und landet schon bald auf schönen Waldwegen, die wiederum auf riesigen naturbelassenen Wiesen enden. Wir fanden das sehr cool, da die Hundespaziergänge im Urlaub sich manchmal auch sehr mühsam gestalten können.

SEHR SCHÖN! Wir werden sicher nicht das letzte Mal da gewesen sein.

Vielen Dank an Francesca und Ihren Mann für Ihre Gastfreundschaft!

Wunderschön auf großem Gelände gelegen

  • 4 of 5

Die Ferienwohnung liegt wunderschön etwas abseits vom Ort. Rustikal, sauber und gepflegt. Es war unser Startpunkt für den zweitägigen Expobesuch in Mailand. Wir, Familie mit 3 Jugendlichen haben uns dort sehr wohlgefühlt. Dazu dienten auch verschiedene Rückzugsmöglichkeiten auf dem großen Gelände. Die Vermieter sind sehr freundlich. Die Buchung im Vorfeld hat prima geklappt. Wir würden die Wohnung gleich weiterempfehlen.

Maison très agréable, accueil très sympathique

  • 5 of 5

La maison est au calme et est restée fraîche pour les nuits malgré les grosses chaleurs de ce début août. Elle est très bien située pour découvrir la région et le centre de Milan est à 40 minutes de train. Les propriétaires sont très gentils et attentionnés. Nous avons passé un excellent séjour !
