About this listing
Bright and stylish apartment in the beautiful Novocomum building, architect Giuseppe Terragni's masterpiece. Right near Como lake and its villas, the town centre and the park. A large balcony to relax and drink a glass of wine in the evening. Equipped with anything you need to experience Como.
Alla nostra casa teniamo molto! Vi chiediamo di rispettare alcune regole, semplici ma importanti. L'appartamento si trova al secondo piano di un edificio dove vivono anche altre persone, vi chiediamo il rispetto dei vicini, evitando chiasso e schiamazzi, soprattutto nelle ore serali e notturne. Vi chiediamo di non sprecare! Quando uscite spegnete la luce, la Terra vi ringrazierà! Noi facciamo la raccolta differenziata, se potete aiutateci anche voi. Carta, plastica e vetro vengono riciclati! Se volete fumare c'è il balcone, per favore non fumate in casa, gli ospiti che arriveranno dopo di voi ne saranno felici.
Elena was a very good host and always replied our querries promptly. She is always smiling and was prepared to help us in any way. When we arrived, she met us down stairs ane even helped us with our bags. She explained the working of all the appliances in the apartment. The apartment was very neat and clean and we loved it.
We were having some problem with adapter and she explained in great detail and helped us in getting one. Though she was not in Como on the day we were leaving but she took care to arrange a taxi for going to railway station.
The location of the apartment is excellent with a lake in front of the apartment and hills on two sides. It was a walkable distance to the railway station. A super market was very close to the building.
The Terragni flat was spotless.
Elena was very friendly and flexible with check in and out times. She even helped me book my train from Florence.
Elena and her family are real Terragni enthusiasts and had a lot of information about Novocomum and his other architectural works available to read.
The building was of course very beautiful and the balcony was a real plus (with a view of a bit of the lake). It was unseasonably hot in Como when we were there. The flat has no aircon but there was a fan and we slept with the windows open.
The shared laundry facilities were also very handy after 6 weeks on the road.
Thank you for a wonderful stay Elena!
Elena wasn't in town, but she graciously had her father meet us at the apartment to let us in. The apartment was clean, just as pictured with a lovely balcony and view, in a great area of town, close to the water, the boat dock, and all of downtown. We couldn't get the cooktop to work with the coffeemaker and could have used a few more amenities, but overall very much enjoyed our stay there.
Elena was really nice and helpful. she was responsive and tried her best to accommodate us. The apartment is really nice and the location is great, it's right by the lake and architecturally it's an important building, and since we were architecture students it was really cool to stay in a Terragni building and study it. Our only problem was that the Wifi was not working and wasn't fixed during our stay. It seemed like Elena was doing her best to have someone fix it but there was nothing she could do.
Ottima l'accoglienza. L'appartamento corrisponde perfettamente alla descrizione. E' estremamente pulito e ben accessoriato e, oltre alla posizione strategica per girare la città storica e fare passeggiate sul lungo lago, offre la possibilità di soggiornare, anche per poco, nel Novocomum di Terragni, riconosciuto come il primo edificio "razionalista" in Italia.
Ringraziamo Elena e i suoi genitori per l'ospitalità e speriamo di poter tornare in primavera per godere dei colori del lago!
Great place and so close to the old town! Perfect!
Elena is extremely helpful and friendly :) We had a wonderful time!!

About the Host, Elena
Comasca di nascita ma viaggiatrice di adozione. Sono tornata in Italia dopo alcuni anni in giro per l'Europa e non ma continuo a girare con la mente. E con internet! Di professione scrivo. Mi piacciono in ordine: la neve, la bicicletta e la crème brûlée.
