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 !
Lovely apartment, bright and spacious, with everything you need to feel at home. Close to bus and ferry (with parking space as a bonus) apartment is a perfect base for exploring places around lake Como. Giorgio is an excellent host, easy to communicate with, helpful and always available if needed. Would highly recommend this apartment.
Giorgio met us and was very charming and informative. We felt at home in the apartment right away and found we had everything we needed. The bed was comfy, the shower was great and the rooms were light and airy. The views were good too, even in a thunderstorm and we had a few of those! It was close to the boat and bus stops to go up or down the lake and only 40 minutes pleasant and scenic walk around the lake shore into Como.
Thanks Giorgio, for giving us the chance to have a great and affordable holiday in Cernobbio! We would happily recommend your apartment to our friends in England and to anyone planning a visit to this beautiful area.
Giorgio Is the perfect host! With his busy school schedule we were not able to meet personally but all things went smoothly. He kept in touch by phone as we needed but there were no problems.
We stayed 8 days in Giorgio's nice and sunny apartment. Everything was just perfect. The apartment was really clean, the location perfect (very close to everything yet on a quiet street), there was a parking space for the car and a baby bed and chair for our baby. Giorgio left a note with recommendations for restaurants and trips and was always available through whatsapp for further help! I felt at home in the apartment and was really sad to leave. I wish we could have stayed longer (forever :-)). I would recommend this apartment to everyone: everything you need is right there. Cernobbio itself is also a really nice little town with lots of restaurants and many things to do nearby. Highly recommended!!
