Xavier is absolute pleasure to deal with. He was very welcoming and met me at the train station on arrival and introduced me to the immediate area around the flat. Not only was he very helpful and gave lots of local information about restaurants, bars, places to see but he would respond very quickly to any enquires I had before and during my stay. A great host and can't recommend him enough! The flat is very nice, clean and well equipped. The location is perfect with only a 5 minute walk to the lake. I would definitely return when I'm in the area again!
I cannot recommend Xavier & Sam and their apartment enough. It is perfectly positioned a few minutes stroll from the beautiful old town & the breathtaking lakeside - you feel part of the action not right in the middle of it. The apartment feels totally secure with all windows, shutters & doors securable with modern locks, as well as a lockable gate into the small complex. As they & others have noted there is a road running beside (but not next to the pretty terrace), but the soundproofing is excellent and I didn't notice any noise with windows shut. The rooms themselves are clean, modern, well furnished and thoughtful. We didn't want for anything. I can't wait to come back & stay again. Another asset is Xavier himself, he was a fantastic host & welcomed us with lots of ideas and inside info to make our trip the best it could be. After an unfortunate incident on our last night (a pickpocket stole all our money & cards - apparently not a usual occurrence for Como), Xavier was amazing - he was there to help us in every way we needed and made a rather upset woman & her 9 year old feel like we weren't bereft in a strange country. Go & stay in one of their lovely apartments and have an amazing holiday in a beautiful part of the world. I only left 5 stars because I couldn't leave 10. :)
Great location, great service, great conditions.
Wir hatten eine tolle Zeit in Como und am Comer See. Das Apartment ist neu, modern, hochwertig ausgestattet und sehr geschmackvoll eingerichtet. Die Lage ist für alle Ausflüge, Stadtgänge in die Altstadt von Como und Spaziergänge am See perfekt. Die Terrasse liegt zum Innenhof und man teilt sie sich mit Gästen eines zweiten Apartments. Das war für uns aber gar kein Problem, wir haben gerne morgens draußen gefrühstückt oder nachmittags eine kleine Ruhepause dort eingelegt. Xavier hat uns sehr herzlich empfangen und uns viele gute Tipps für Ausflüge und unseren Aufenthalt gegeben. Wir konnten ihn auch zwischendurch erreichen und um Rat fragen, er hat sich umgehend gemeldet und war sehr hilfsbereit. Das Begrüßungspaket bestehend aus Kaffee, Milch, Tee, Saft ist klasse, besonders wenn man zu einer Uhrzeit ankommt, zu der kein Supermarkt mehr geöffnet ist.
Wir waren 10 Tage in Como und haben von dort Wanderungen, Ausflüge usw. gemacht, das war nicht zu lang, im Gegenteil. Wir waren rundum zufrieden.
Had a great stay in this apartment. Good location, very nice apartment and Xavier as a host was very responsive and helpful. Can only recommend it.
The apartment was lovely, very clean and spacious, and Xavier was a wonderful host, going so far as coming to meet us at the nearby train station to show us back to the apartment. He was always accessible and provided a lot of extremely useful information, particularly about local restaurants, and places to visit in the Lake Como area. In that regard, everything was great.
The only slight issues for us were the fact that the apartment opens onto a very major thoroughfare that has a lot of loud traffic. With the windows open (there was no air conditioning, and we were there in the hot summer), it was quite loud. We asked about this in advance, and Xavier did acknowledge it, but being there and experiencing it is different. Another isse was the fact that the apartment is listed as having a terrace, but it doesn't mention that one has to share the terrace, including the one small table and two chairs, with another apartment. We thought we had it to ourselves. We got back in the evenings only to find that the others had moved the table and chairs to their area, leaving us with an empty terrace. Plus, as the terrace was off the bedroom, with access via full doors that open, there was no way to keep the doors open for air and maintain security, or privacy. Again, with the hot summer and no airconditioning, it was not ideal, though the apartment did have fans.
Still, we were very pleased with the apartment and the service, and would recommend Xavier and his apartments (he manages several) to others. It is just important that one is aware of the things listed prior to reserving.
This apartment was really great place to live in Como. It's very conveniently located near everything might be needed. Xavier is wonderful host, who does all his best to organize a comfortable stay for his guests.
Thank you, Xavier.
We've just returned from a four night stay in this apartment. It's a lovely apartment: lots of light and space and recently renovated. There is a rear, shared courtyard, and big windows opening to the street. There is everything you could possibly need to cook meals for four people. Everything is new (matching!) and clean. You'll be walking distance to everything in Como: the bus station, train station (Lago Como Nord), the funicular and the lake itself. Great restaurants just around the corner too!
We had a lovely time in Como (not long enough) Xavier was there to meet us, even though it was pouring with rain. He walked with us to the apartment which was not far from the train station. Xavier showed us around and had information and maps ready on the dining table. He was also flexible about departure time which made it easier for us. I would recommend staying here.
Valoración 5 estrellas!!!.
La experiencia fue fantástica, la ubicación perfecta muy cerca del centro, al lado de las estaciones de tren y bus y del puerto. El apartamento muy coqueto y bien cuidado. Al ser una familia con dos niños pequeños agradecimos muchísimo que hubiera dos terrazas para jugar. Xavier nos cuidó muchísimo y nos aconsejó muy bien.
Unas vacaciones estupendas!!!
