Elegant apartment on Lake Como with a large terrace. Carate Urio (COMO)
average rating of 5.0 based on 3 reviews

Clean, large apartment with an incredible view

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is large, very clean and has two floors which gives it a lot of room for 5 to 7 people. The terrace is very big and allows a lot of outdoor living. The view at the lake is absolutely beautiful and you can't get enough of it. The family room which is built "into" the mountain keeps the apartment cool during hot days. It's nice that every bedroom has its own full bathroom. The kitchen is small but big enough to cook in it, and it is very well equipped. The parking space is conveniently only 100 meters away. We didn't mind the steps that one has to walk to the entrance of the apartment since it's the way the houses are built "into the mountains". It's part of the charm of the area. The landlords Paolo and Laura are very well organized and the renting process was very easy and smooth. If you know how to drive a boat, we recommend to rent one in Cernobbio. It's the best way to see the lake. There is only one thing we were missing: Carate Urio isn't a town where you can stroll around and sit in outdoor cafes and such since it doesn't have a "city center"; you have to take the ferry or drive to towns such a Bellagio or Cernobbio. Overall, we highly recommend this apartment.

Fantastic stay

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a week stay at Il Volo and the place was absolutely perfect. The view from the patio is breath taking and you are steps away from the lake. The apartment is large with every amenity needed. There are TVs in every room. The bathrooms and rooms were large. the cave like living room hewn out of mountain rocks is great. Carate Urio is a quiet little town but within easy driving distance of Como and all the major attractions on the lake. An added bonus is that the ferry is across the street so getting around without a car is possible. We did have a car and the reserved parking spot was extremely convenient. There are some decent restaurants within walking distance of the apartment as well. I would however not recommend the apartment to elder folks due to the steps needed to access it. We felt very welcome and the owners were awesome during the entire rental process as well as our stay. Strongly recommend this place.
