About the property

House in Carate Urio, Lake Como, Lombardy / Italian Lakes, Italy - Amazing Landscape, Quite And Discrete Neighbourhood

The house can host 4 guests. The bedroom on the second floor and the sofabed at the ground floor (each of them with a private fully equipped bathroom) allow comfort and privacy between the guests.

Neighborhood is very quiet. Local families are very friendly and discrete. They will never decline a smile, a greeting or a request of help or information. at the same time, they won't step into your privacy and enjoy the slow rhythms of Lake Como as much as you do. On top of that, the landscape you can appreciate from ANY terrace of the house will leave you breathless.

About Michele La Rosa

Open minded, I love to travel and suggestive landscapes are sometimes a reason to live. That's why I set up this house for renting putting myself in the shoes of a guest, of a traveller eager to find a comfortable and fully equipped house in a nice location.

I am already renting it through word on mouth and was hesitant to put my property on line because it's part of my family history.but I changed my mind after the quality of this website has been recommended to me.

Also, I like that friends and respectful and nice guests take advantages of this beautiful landscape. Please, come and enjoy the relaxing atmosphere and good connections that my property offers to people who love to discover this area of Italy.

Michele La Rosa purchased this house in 1995

Why Michele La Rosa chose Carate Urio

Purchased as weekend house.

The dream was to disconnect from the daily routine in the shortest time possible.

With this house the dream came through.

What makes this house unique

breathless landscape, quite environment, freshness in summertime....all of this just at 15 minutes by car from the city center.

Comfortable Home with a Great View of Lake Como

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I were very impressed overall with our whole experience renting this house. We live in Italy and use rental homes frequently, and this one was by far one of the best experiences we've had. The owner Michele was very kind, responded immediately with any questions we had, prepared everything for our checkin, and even emailed us the next morning to make sure everything was ok. The house was very accommodating - we cooked our breakfasts and some lunches there and it was so nice to be in a house where we had everything we needed to prepare food! You can tell that this is Michele's home, and he just rents it out. The bedroom and bathroom had very nice furnishings and the view from the bedroom was amazing! The neighborhood was very quiet and made for a great weekend.

The house is three stories with one room on each level, which was not an issue for us. There is not an assigned parking space, but we always found a spot close to the house.

Great location and views

  • 4 of 5

Great property. Fantastic peaceful location!

Well equipped clean house. Great to have two bathrooms. Lovely views and choices of two areas to sit out as a family. The house did get hot and would benefit from air conditioning.

As with all the properties in Carate Urio you cannot park your car at the house so be prepared for a walk and steps and choose luggage with that in mind.

This is a small town. Small shop 5 minutes walk away for essentials otherwise you will need to venture further with car.

10 minute walk to ferry stop where you can get a ride to Como, Bellagio etc. Great way to see the stunning scenery.

We only had 3 nights here and wish we had booked longer.

Owner's Response: Dear Jane. Thanks a lot for this kind review. you pointed out all the advantages and the cautions of my house and of the area where it is located. it is a very realistic and honest feedback. I appreciate it a lot. My personal thanks also for having treated carefully and respectfully my property. Everything was clean and in order after you left, with big respect of the rules of the house. Considering that I still go often to that house to enjoy it, it is very important to have guests behaving like you. I wish to have you again as guest of my house in Carate in the future. Best regards, Michele
