The City of Silk

Como is the home of silk. Ties, scarves, suits, soft home furnishings are spun and printed here using traditional craftsmanship.

At the Educational Silk Museum (Museo didattico della Seta), or in the Ratti Foundation Rooms (Sale della Fondazione Ratti) you can retrace the steps of this ancient tradition.

For high quality shopping you can find numerous boutiques in the centre of Como close to the appartament.

Lake Como

Como, renowned for its breathtaking landscape, historical villas with picturesque gardens, stone hamlets, sailing boats and little wooden fishing boats, which have inspired artists and poets countless times to feature it in their works.

It’s possible to admire the stunning scenery in various ways. Taking the funicular up to Brunate gives you an impressive view from above, or you can take a boat trip on the lake, stroll around the streets of the picturesque hamlets or pedal along the shores absorbing the breathtaking scenery from below.

Each season, summer or winter, during the flowering of Spring or the magnificent colours of the Autumn has something special to offer. If you’re visiting during special days like the celebration on Comacina Island for Saint John the Baptist (24th June), or just normal days, day or night time.

If you’re visiting for the first time or returning, Lake Como is always different but always familiar.

Golf

Imagine pointing a compass at our appartment in the middle of Como. You can find seven golf courses within a twenty kilometre radius, close to the Lake or in the surrounding areas.

To name a few:
Villa d’Este historically renowned, prestigious site of international golfers Carimate e Monticello
the hundred-year-old, scenic Menaggio & Cadenabbia
Lanzo immersed in a chestnut and beech wood
Lecco and La Pinetina, equally picturesque and technically challenging.

Shopping

Surrounding the appartment you will find artisan workshops, art galleries, antique shops and elegant boutiques.

Before making any final decisions about what to buy, you should visit La Tessitura (for silk) or the designer outlet Fox Town in the nearby Mendrisio….


Excursions and visits

From the apartment there are endless possibilities for excursions among nature, history or art.

If you fancy a boat trip on the Lake, the boats leave leave from outside the Hotel. You can visit Bellagio, the wonderful hamlet (borgo) located at the point where the two branches of Lake Como meet. Or you could visit the blissful Island Comacina, for a stroll or romantic dinner. It’s also well worth allowing yourself a whole day to do the Lario tour.

If you like walking, the network of paths of the Via dei Monti Lariani start from the nearby Cernobbio. These are long, but not too difficult routes from m in altitude, traced out by the Italian Alpine Club, CAI, (Club Alpino Italiano).
If you want to take in the full view of the lake and its surrounding areas better, you can also take the funicular up the mountain to Brunate.

If you would prefer to do something more extravagant you could try flying over the lake in a seaplane, or renting a vintage car and speeding round with the wind flying through your hair.

The cosmopolitan Lugano is just a few minutes away-leaving the European Community behind and crossing one of the last border checkpoints. Passports or ID cards are needed in order to get through.

Fox Town, the obligatory shopping stop with 160 designer stores, can be found in Mendrisio on the way back to the border.

Really central accommodation, in the old town. Very nice style and lots of info about the local area. Made us feel very welcome. Hosts were helpful - even though the washing machine was broken they did some washing for us which was great as we were travelling.

Place is well located, near the lake and and in the middle of the historic city however the photos on the website looks much nicer then what you get, place is full of old image and old wood articles from India which brings with as smell and feeling of mite, if you allergic avoid. I had some issues with the owner on extra costs which was not nice. Place doesn't look like on the pictures, as said there are too many old furniture and articles from every where in this planet which looks old and didn't give us a good feeling of being there, whatever if you look for something very very simple and central and not allergic of mite, that's the place!

Response from Susanna:
Dear Marco, I'm so sorry that my home did not like you. My home is full of travel memories, as my boyfriend Walter and I are travelers, as written in the name of the ad. If you do not appreciate our style I'm sorry, a matter of taste, you could have booked in a hotel where the environment is impersonal and neutral. As for the photos of the house on the ad, I'm sorry to contradict you, but we did it myself and my boyfriend, without the help of any professional airbnb photographer, so absolutely realistic and not "remodeled" so I recommend, Next time, to look more carefully at what you are booking to avoid creating problems for hosts who are so committed to giving guests satisfaction. Also, I recommend you to read the rules of the house and respect them and communicate more accurately with hosts. Thank you P.S. Thank you for your advice, but I have no intention of throwing in the rubbish the memories of India, as suggested by you, also because many of them are precious pieces of antiques

We stayed 3 nights at the apartement of walter and susanna. As we arrived walter was waiting and showed us how everying worked . He also gave us lots of ideas what we could do in como. He is very friendly and helpful! The flat is located in the middle of the town and was clean. Although it is very quiet. We felt very comfortable. Thanks a lot!

Just as what it described. We were late because of train but she's very kind and accommodated us. It could be better to remind guest's the precise address of the place after confirmation. We had trouble locating it.
