I'll try to be as brief as possible: book ASAP. I guarantee this place will be one of your best Italian experiences! It was, for me, even though during half my stay it had been raining all day (that's December for you). But when it was clear - dear me, what a view!
(and inside the apartment - check the photos, it's all there).
As for the host, it was a genuine pleasure to meet Francesco. The communication before my arrival was very quick and when I did arrive, Francesco met me not only with the keys to the place but also a basket full of fruit!
Overall, an absolute gem of a place, book ASAP. You can thank me later )
I stayed for 1 night at Francesco's adorable apartment. He was a most gracious host and made sure I had everything I needed. The apartment is very warm and cosy. And waking up to a view of Lake Como was truly amazing. I would recommend this listing to anyone traveling to the area. It may seem a ways away from Como proper but it's worth it for the location alone but also the great hospitality. Thank you again Francesco! I hope to visit again sometime.
L'appartamento di Francesco è carino: una sola stanza ma spaziosa e (website hidden) siamo trovati bene e non ci ha dato particolarmente fastidio il rumore della strada vicina.
La vista lago è piacevole e Francesco è stato molto cortese e simpatico nell'accoglienza: ci ha perfino offerto alcune mozzarelle direttamente dalla Campania (che noi abbiamo mangiato immediatamente...).
Sicuramente da consigliare!
Nice flat, very comfortable. I would recommend coming by car though as it is a bit of a distance from Como.
The apartment was clean, simple and comfortable with a view over the lake. Francesco was quick to respond to our booking request and provided good guidance on how to get to the apartment. We were pleased with the bed and the shower and some small touches like some home made food on our arrival and departure.
Francesco greeted us on our arrival at the apartment, which is an extremely good size. It's located just up from the shore of Lake Como and only a 10/15min drive from Como itself. The two local villages are very pleasant to walk around, and Como was lovely. I'd definitely suggest taking the funicular railway up to the top of the hill (or walking if you're brave!) and wandering around up there. The views are stunning, and we managed to find a lovely restaurant overlooking Como and the lake.
Francesco was a great host, and provided plenty of information for us and a very nice selection of food for breakfast. He even showed us into his workshop, where he makes string instruments, and explained the process. Very interesting!
The apartment was great, with a combined living room, bedroom and kitchenette and a separate bathroom. There was also ample parking just outside the door!
Very pleased that we found Francesco's place and would definitely recommend to others!
We thoroughly enjoyed out stay at Francesco's delightful apartment. We found Francesco to be a wonderful host: welcoming, enthusiastic, generous and extremely thoughtful. From his greeting us on our arrival, helping us lug our heavy bike bags, to the beautiful fresh flowers and thoughtful array of food (fresh fruit, yoghurt, bread, a selection of biscuits & cake, juice, a range of teas, several varieties of milk & coffee), the apartment was well appointed and very clean.
We really appreciated Francesco's 'extra' touches, one night a fresh-from-the-oven pear & chocolate flan, another some buffalo mozzarella, and freshly made crepes on the morning of our departure. Each of these made the stay a little more special.
The apartment is charming, ample for two people and has a nice view of the lake. It is on the main road, so there is some traffic noise, but we didn't find that intrusive. It is also a nice walk of about 15 minutes to Torno, with its delightful harbour, access to ferries and Bar Italia, where there is simple, authentic, great food and wonderful feel.
So we found the whole experience to be just fantastic. Thanks Francesco and airbnb!
We had a very good experience at Francesco’s place. He was friendly and helpful. We like to hike and he provided a number of hiking suggestions near Blevio and across the lake in Menaggio. The apartment is a good size, including the bathroom and shower. We arrived to a well-stocked fridge (milk, fruit, yogurt, etc.) and pantry. Also he brought us several large pieces of a lovely cake his wife had made. The apartment is located a little ways out of Como. We had a car, but there is a bus service that passes outside the apartment. Not too far from the apartment, there is a great little bar/restaurant in Faggetto Lario with a great view of the lake and two very nice guys running the place.
really loved the apartment! was the perfect stay in lake como. i felt very relaxed there and loved that francesco left some great cds of music to listen to.
Excellent host - very clean and nice apartment and served us delicious breakfast.
