About Dan Walker

I live in Dorset, England on the south coast . Now retired, having spent most of my life in the hospitality industry [ hotels, restaurants etc ] and letting holiday properties since 1972 now with Regina Studio in its 10th year and a property in Dorset for 24 years

Dan Walker purchased this apartment in 2003

Why Dan Walker chose Laglio

Since retiring we have done a lot of travelling and wanted a holiday base in Europe with good budget airline access ,we looked for a year then found Regina Studio and its small patio/ garden in the tranquil village of Laglio, a spectactular location with good local facilities. Regina Studio met all our requirements with the advantage of being a small property with minimum overheads , an ideal property for couple and singles which we could let at a very competitive rate and with many extras only found in larger properties

Having looked round the lake Laglio offered had a very good reason to purchase a holiday property in it, as it is one of only a few of many villages on the west side of the lake bypassed - hence it is very peacefull and unspoilt

What makes this apartment unique

The benefits of Regina Studio are easy access from Milans airports unlike properties which are further north or on the otherside of the lake. Secondly secure underground parking [ car keeps cool in the summer ] and of utmost importance unlike many other properties in Laglio and elsewhere it is not affected by traffic noise All guests are met and shown round the apartment.

The location is the envy of many property owners most apartments in Regina Studio are owned by Italians a second homes. Only 8 miles from the vibrant town of Como and 30 miles from Lake Lugano in Switzerland . Most holiday properties sleep 4/6, hence couples are paying for facilities they do not require - allowing more spending money whilst on holiday and or longer stays. Nearest shops /restaurants are only a 5 minute walk away on the flat/Last but not least its within 100yds of the lake with uninterupted views of the lake and mountains beyond .Patio garden.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Sept 14

Amazing location with stunning views of the lake. Small but perfectly formed apartment with all the facilities one could desire.

Owner Dan provided precise and helpful instructions and advice on amenities and sightseeing including boat timetables and recommended restaurants.

Regina, our aptly named host, was extremely helpful and nothing was too much trouble for her. A delight to have met her.

Can't wait to return for a third time!

June 14

Didn't quite know what to expect from a studio but having spoken to the owner who called me once I made the enquiry I was delighted at the efficiency of instructions, directions and assistance . The space has been well used to provide very comfortable accommodation with all the facilities one could require. Extras such as cleaning products, toilet rolls, condiments, paper towels and cling film were also left for us.

Superb information on local trips, sightseeing,places of interest, boat timetables,restaurants and even advice on visiting Switzerland were also provided by the owners Dan and Anne . Nothing was too much trouble.

We were late arriving due to Milan traffic but Cinzia still met us despite the late hour and was very gracious about our late arrival. She couldn't have been more helpful and was a superb hostess- very informative and a lovely natured girl. Well done to the owners for finding her.

Sept 13

Excellent service from the moment I enquired about the apartment. The apartment itself was very clean and well presented on arrival. It's very well equipped with everything you'd need. The complex itself is very secure - it's always a bonus to have undercover parking, for example.

Having the cosy garden overlooking the lake was a particular highlight for us - to be staying in such a good location for the price we paid was very reasonable, especially compared to other properties we'd looked at.

Although we didn't need to contact the local representative, Regia, once she'd shown us around the apartment, it was still comforting to know that if we had any problems, there was somebody local on hand to help us out.

From Laglio it is possible to visit many of the towns and villages dotted up and down this section of the lake - Como is very close by and other places like Bellagio and Varenna are easily reached via the ferry. We found the box of leaflets/walks/guide books very useful to read through when we first arrived at the apartment to help us plan our week.

Overall, a lovely one week stay in a beautiful part of Italy. Thank you Dan and Ann!

Cozy and practically furnished apartment with a small kitchenette, comfortable bed and gorgeous view of the lake and mountains. Great location for outings to nearby tourist attractions (Milan, Bergamo, Certosa di Pavia, Lugano). Greatly recommended for couples. Deserves high rating

Excellent Location, Spectacular views, lovely stay

  • 5 of 5

Very clean and well looked after Studio apartment complete with all you need within a well maintained building with beautiful Italian surroundings.

Great location with dramatic mountains and spectacular views of the lake and close access to walks along lake.

Ideal quiet location well situated with own garden, Good safe

Underground Car parking.

Good base to explore the lovely Architecture in towns and villages and Italian culture on and around the lake or venture further up into the lovely Alps. The Swiss border is very close, only but 10/15min drive from the Apartment.

Restaurants, Pizzeria’s, Cafes close by within walking distance from the Apartment.

Thoroughly enjoyable stay for me and my wife and would strongly recommend.

Bring a good Camera as there is so much beauty to photograph.

Secure, self contained, sofa bedded, studio apartment with small garden and stunning outlook.

  • 4 of 5

A well set-up and well maintained property. Before our arrival, the owner, Dan, provided a wealth of information about the apartment, its location and what to expect as a traveller in Italy (very useful tips). His local manager, Cinzia, is an exuberant, warm and welcoming individual, who would be prepared to trouble shoot any problem. Fortunately we had none, but Cinzia's welcome set the tone for a wonderful 4 days! This is a quiet location and a great base from which to explore the southern and western shores of Lake Como. A car is pretty well essential, but with underground parking and an elevator to the apartment level, access is easy. Close to Como, with its fascinating old town, and Cernobbioto the south and picturesque Argegno and lovely Lenno to the north. Visits to the Villa Balbianello and to Villa Carlotta are strongly recommended and there are also great walks along the lake and up into the forested hills.

Closest food is a stone's throw north along via Regina, where a lovely Italian family have opened a Bottega e Caffe. Whether you are after a morning coffee or light snack, an afternoon beer or wine, or a selection of local meats and cheeses to take home, this is the place to go, commune with locals or just sit and watch the lake. For dinner, try Albergo Fioroni in Carate Urio - the dining room sits right on the lakefront and you get to listen to Giuseppe Fioroni on piano!

Lovely Laglio

  • 5 of 5

A lovely well equipped apartment in a quiet area with stunning views, Laglio is the perfect location to explore Lake Como, there are a few good places to eat nearby without having to use the car. A trip to Lake Lugano and Balcone d`Italia at Sighignola is a must, the only problem we found was that two weeks was not enough.

Perfect property for romantic getaway

  • 5 of 5

Lovely apartment with everything we needed. Perfect location for exploring. Laglio is a beautiful village. And the views from the terrace, while sipping an aperil spritz, were stunning.

Charismatic Como

  • 5 of 5

Perfect .peaceful, position and stunning location with amazing views of the lake.

lots of space for a studio with all required amenities.

The owner Dan provided very helpful advice on both local activities and restaurants and even provided advice on visiting Switzerland.

Stayed in May 2014 originally with the assistance of the very lovely and helpful Cinza and enjoyed it so much we returned in September to meet our host this time being the aptly named Regina. Again very lovely and helpful. Well done Dan for finding these two gorgeous girls.

Can't wait to visit your apartment again ☺️

Excellent en septembre par beau temps

  • 4 of 5

Nous avons apprécié la qualité et la sécurité du logement, son accessibilité en voiture et les services mis à disposition par le propriétaire (parking intérieur, disponibilité d'une personne pour la réception et les éventuels petits problèmes, proximité des magasins et gentillesse des commerçants, etc...). Le panorama sur le lac est splendide et la situation médiane sur la rive du lac est idéale pour les escapades, comme pour les sorties en ville.

A cette période de l'année, le séjour est très calme, ce qui convient très bien aux romantiques.
