Small home. Really one bedroom with a wall that divides two sleeping areas. One bathroom, but a nice one.
Very warm, but good AC units on wall. Though only one works at a time.
Wifi didn't work at all. Previous guests used all the available Wifi allowance :( This was disappointing, as we had to go into town to find Wifi.
Lots of stairs to carry luggage from parking space.
We had a lovely stay. The accomodation is basic, but the view is breathtaking. You can reach the centre of Como in 5min by car. I would definately recommend this place to friends.
We had a great time in Como. Everything worked out well. Roberto and Monia were very helpful with information. Internet can be slow.
What a wonderful view of Como! The apartment was clean and fresh, and we enjoyed sitting outside and taking in the surroundings.
It's important to note that the apartment is NOT pedestrian accessible from the city, one would have to walk on a 40mph/60km winding hilly road with no shoulder to get there. The host thoughtfully picked us up from the train station but then we had to pay a taxi to go back and forth to the city.
(consider this in the price, the view is absolutely amazing)
Our time in Roberto's house was among the highlights of our road trip through Italy. The views are spectacular - probably worth four times as much in a hotel! The house is also spacious, very secluded and quiet, has two air conditioning units, and has a great kitchen that we took full advantage of to cook up some local feasts. Communication was also excellent throughout the whole process. Definitely worth a few nights:)
This location is brilliant! Based on the pictures you get a sense of the place but it is better in real life. The view over Como is amazing.
Very fast responses from Roberto and checking in went perfect.
A few small problems, the road running below the house makes a lot of noise when you are sitting in the garden enjoying the perfect view. We had no working WiFi and since they are using a 3g connection, don't expect much of it. I suspect the data limit of 10gb for the month was used. So if you really need a good WiFi connection, this is not the place for you.
If you are looking for a great stopover or just a place to stay while exploring everything Lago di Como has to offer, look nu further!
We did not meet Roberto but Monia. She was very helpful and efficient. Easy and quick key pick up, stunning view, gorgeous apartment = great time;) cheers
