About Rudy and Sandra

I grew up in Gravedona, but live in London with my wife Sandra. We both work, but spend most of our holidays between Lake Como and Rome, where we have our families and many friends.

Rudy and Sandra purchased this house in 2008

Why Rudy and Sandra chose Lake Como

We purchased the property in 2008 and it was in bad conditions, although all the original 1600' features were well preserved. The restoration and rebuilding has been a labour of love over several years. With the intent to build the perfect holiday home for ourselves, every detail was given careful attention. Living abroad we don't have the chance to enjoy it as much as we would like so we want to share it with our guests.

What makes this house unique

The property is set in a truly unique location in the center of Gravedona, the town with the longest lake-side promenade. The views from the property are breath-taking because the water is wider here than in many other parts and the mountains, although higher, are set back from the edge of the water. We come here to relax and escape from the hectic city life, eat healthy and genuine food, enjoy the enviable weather and outdoor activities.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We really enjoyed our stay at La Casa sul Lario which is on the shore front at Gravedona. The house is very comfortable with good facilities and was well equipped with everything we needed for our stay. We were greeted by Fosca and her mother; Fosca was a great help during our stay. Gravedona seems to be less 'touristy' than other villages on the lake which suited us very well. We ate at a couple of good restaurants in Gravedona and also used the local chef recommended by the villa's owner, Rudy; the food was delicious. We used the ferry service and also rented boats from the nearby Donga (walking distance along the lake shore) to visit other villages on the lake. We would also recommend driving up into the villages in the mountains for walking and/or lunch.

Superb house in a great location

  • 5 of 5

Our group of seven chose to stay here partly because it looked great on the website and its location in a beautiful area of Lake Como. The owners were very welcoming and helpful and the house itself had lots of character mixing old with new and clearly lots of thought had gone into its restoration. Gravedona is far enough from the 'tourist spots' to be relaxing but near enough to access easily. We travelled both sides of the length of the lake by car, train, bus and boat.

In all a holiday we really enjoyed.

Lovely property with all facilities and stunning views across the lake and mountains

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful week in Gravedona, the property was beyond our expectations, we had fun in the games rooms, cooked dinners in the well equipped kitchen and enjoyed the views from the top floor terrace (we happened to be there during a firework display across the lake, we must have had the best possible position, they were wonderful). I would highly recommend the property.

Excellent home and owners!

  • 5 of 5

Townhouse was just as advertised and was in outstanding condition. The location was great with the ferry only 50 yards and good restaurants and food store

within easy walking distance. The owners were extremely responsive to any needs and can't tell you how much we enjoyed the home. Would definitely recommend.

Outstanding in every way

  • 5 of 5

La Casa Sul Lario is outstanding in every way. We were met by Fosca and her mother. Fosca graciously explained the workings of everything and was very helpful. The house itself is spacious and beautifully decorated. It is obvious that a great deal of care and pride has gone in to the refurbishment of this lovely lakeside home. The rooftop balcony is glorious any time of day. Everyone had plenty of room to relax. Our family of six could have comfortably lived there.

We did not need the air conditioning in June, but imagine it will be handy later in the summer. Wifi worked very well. The washer/dryer were very useful, as was the modern and well-stocked kitchen. Views from every room are stunning. Gravedona is a lovely town with a grocery very near the house, terrific restaurants, and extremely nice people. Ferry stop within 100m of front door.

Tony and Sandra were very helpful and responded quickly to questions. Tony recommended the local taxi company, Alto Lario Taxi, which was reliable and reasonable.

Don't hesitate to book La Casa Sul Lario.
