Giorgio is the perfect host. He gave us detailed desription of the surroundings and things to do. Also, he provided some insider's tips with regards to dining options. The Napule restaurant in Como was the best food we had on our trip. And Momi's was the romantic place by the lake you can only dream off!
Giorgio's apartment provides everything you need even for a longer stay and it is favorably located for your day trips around lago di como. Thanks a lot for this great experience!
We had a pleasant stay at Cernobbio. The appartment was nice and clean with a parking spot in the courtyard. Very close to the center and with a bakery at 15 meters! Freshly washed sheets and towels. Nice!
Our experience in Cernobbio was amazing :) We weren't met by Giorgio but he kindly dropped the keys off to where my Mum was staying and at the apartment we were left with all the information we needed, and all extremely helpful. The apartment was everything we expected and more, there's so much space and all really clean and lovely! And really close to the lake, shops and transportation. We really felt at home here. We would definitely stay here again, it was a really positive experience and will recommend Giorgio's apartment to my friends and family. Grazie Giorgio!
Even though we didn't get in until 1 a.m. Giorgio met us at the condo and showed us how everything worked and where to find everything in the area.
It was incredibly hot while we were there however he had fans in each room to cool us down. Also the unit is on the top floor so it was breezy.
The location is perfect, close to all amenities and there is a bakery on the street level! We were able to walk to the ferry, food, groceries, numerous gelato shops, a park for our kids by the lake.
I would not hesitate to stay here again. Thank you so much for making our first trip to the area so enjoyable.
Our 6 night stay in Giorgio's spacious apartment was most enjoyable. What a friendly and helpful host Giorgio is!! He greeted us with a welcome drink and lots of information about the Lake Como area, recommending day trips, restaurants, where to shop and explaining the bus and ferry services. After an hour, we had our first three days planned and felt confident about navigating our way around the area. Giorgio also helped us with train schedules and booking a taxi to ensure we made the correct connections to Milan on the morning of our departure.
The apartment and its facilities exceeded our expectations.
The only negative is that it's on the third floor so carrying heavy suitcases up the stairs can be hard going. (Lucky for me, Giorgio insisted on taking mine.)
The apartment in Cernobbio is in an ideal position. It's an easy half hour walk along the lake to the old town and if you're feeling energetic, it's worth continuing on to the Furnicolare to go up to the village of Brunate and for even more spectacular views, walking the 1.4km up to Alessandro Volta's lighthouse.
We chose the nearby ferry for a 'Hop on hop off' day excursion on the lake and visited the spectacular gardens of Villa Balbianello at Lenno then over to Bellagio. Another day we took the bus to Villa Carlotta... not only are the extensive gardens amazing but so is the ride in the very big bus on the very narrow, windy road!! Thanks to Giorgio's enthusiasm for Lake Como and his hospitality, we had a wonderful time.
Nous avons passé un superbe séjour autour du lac de Côme, et l'appartement de Giorgio, idéalement situé, est très accueillant, tout comme son hôte.
Appartement : lumineux, fonctionnel, calme, sécurisé, proche du lac et des commerces (5min)
Giorgio nous a très bien conseillé : promenade en bateau jusqu'à Bellagio, restaurant avec magnifique vue sur le lac + coucher de soleil... C'était parfait !
Merci Giorgio pour votre accueil, votre gentillesse, et vos bons plans !
Appartement et hôte à recommander !
