We stayed at Jasmin No. 1 for two weeks this summer and it was a really pleasent stay:-) The house has a very nice, Italian atmosphere with spacious rooms and Pietro and his family are really helpful and welcoming. The view of the lake and the mountains is spectacular and Torno is a very charming small town with a well equipped grocery store, a gelateria, a cosy bar, etc. There are some very nice, small and quiet beaches nearby in Fagetto Lario (5 min. by car or bus). Previous guests have mentioned the walk from the parking area to the house: the walk takes about 10 minutes, and it is beautiful but also a bit steep (35-40 metres).
We highly recommend a stay in Coerezza's wonderful pink villa:-)
The house occupies a fantastic setting with uninterrupted views over the lake. The house itself is spacious and reasonably child friendly and the garden is excellent wth plenty of seating options plus swings etc for the kids. Access to the house involves a lot of rough steps (we were warned) and is therefore difficult to access with a child buggy, although it can be managed. A microwave and an electric kettle would have been useful, the electricity 'trips' occasionally and the hot water can be a bit hit and miss. However, these small issues are well compensated by the setting.
The house is very lovely located on a hill overlooking lake Como.Torno is a place with few available parking spots but if you can get your car without damage in the garage of the owner, parking is no problem for you. I got my V50 in with a few inches left and loudly beeping parking sensors (and no damage) ;-)
Although the location of the house on the hill provides a splendid view, the house cannot be reached by car. It takes a walk up the hill of about 5 to 8 minutes. You'll get used to it, but the first time and last time (with luggage!) can be quite a struggle. The advantage: no cars (noise/sound) around the house!
Note to future guests: take care of your valuable items: I lost my sun glasses and watch somewhere in/around the house while another guest left a note in the house that he/she lost his red iPod Nano...
We had a few wonderful days in the house. The family is very hospitable. The house has everything you need. The beds, towels, all is comfortable. It has an amazing view. You'll soon forget the way to come "upstairs". :-)
We would recommend the house to others certainly.
Family with teens.
A lovely villa with a great view of the lake. It was worth the climb up the tracks to get to the villa. Our 2-year-old struggled with the walk but was happy to go on our shoulders when she was tired and we were fine with that. Pietro and his family were very kind and our kids loved playing with his kids. A wonderful holiday!
The house is situated at a hill with a nice and large garden with enough places to relax, enjoy a drink or meal and have the nicest view on the lake and. Small villages across the lake of Como.
The house is equipped with more than enough to have a good bed, nice seats, good dinners etc.
Pietro was helpfull upon arrival and leaves you to enjoy your stay in your own way.
The dayly walk to the house is a good way to keep up your excercises as living up the hill and within the property is relaxing and confortable.
We like to hike in the hills, have dinner in the nice rstaurants in the village and loved the small city-harbour with its pitoresque bar and friendly citicens of Torno.
Lake Como is one of the most famous in the world, loved by celebrities attended to. The house overlooks the rooftops of the village and the lake. Torno is located 7 km from Como on the right bank of the lake and 25 from Bellagio. The location is perfect to reach in a few minutes (6-7 car) the city of Como and Bellagio in 25 minutes. At your fingertips are then Lugano Switzerland and its mountains (in 15 minutes you arrive at customs). Milan is one hour by car, Bergamo an hour and 15 minutes. I'll be back is one of the most beautiful and characteristic of Lake Como with its unique square lying on the water and the streets of the medieval town. The village is connected with boats and buses. Lake Como offers many sightseeing opportunities, water sports (sailing, windsurfing, swimming, motor boating, water skiing, canoeing), villas and monuments to visit famous worldwide from Bellagio to Villa Carlotta, ideal for hiking and walks.
