We loved it here. Lucca was great and met us when we arrived and when we left. Gave us some valuable info about booking the train and about the boats to other lakeside towns. Only cost us 38 Euro for 2 adults and 7 year old to travel anywhere around the mid lake for a whole day. Remember if not staying in the peak time to check the boat timetable for times excluding the holiday period. The flat was great and after travelling for a long time it felt a lot like being at home. Only had 2 days to stay but would loved to have stayed longer. Had dinner at an amazing restaurant right on the water one night and just wandered back to the apartment through a beautiful park on the lake edge. The park has a kids playground and a little bar also. It was so nice to be away from most of the tourists and we easily got by with only a few Italian words. WiFi worked well for us and managed to book our next lot of train travel online from the apartment. Very close to the train station so easy to get to without a car. We loved our stay. Thanks Lucca.
We stayed in Mandello, if you want a less touristy place for your visit to Lake Como, this is the place.
Luca was there meet us, he showed us to the apartment, it was just as described, clean with a lovey bathroom, small but very nice.
Luca was was very good to recommend, the best way to explore the lake and towns surrounding it.
There was plenty of flyers in the flat for the different services for travel and shops around Mandello.
There was a TV and Radio, please be warned that it was mainly In Italian part front the few new international news channels, this was not a problem for us as we spent most of our time traveling.
The kitchen was good with all of the main things apart from microwave ( no biggie).
The only thing of compliant was the strength of the WIFI which could have been better, with a stronger signal in all of the rooms, we were still able to stream music from the Internet.
I would stay again in heart beat!!
Luca is a very friendly and helpful host. We had everything we needed and literally only had to bring our tooth brush. Lovely flat close to the lake and to the center in a beautiful village. Perfect holidays! Anytime again.
Mandello is een vriendelijk en dromerig oud stadje. Het appartement is ruim, en schoon, met een gezellige eetkeuken. Alles wat je nodig hebt kun je er vinden. De ligging is heel rustig. Het park en lido van Mandello was mooi, en geschikt voor alle leeftijden. Je kunt een prachtig (en goedkoop) boottochtje van een uur maken naar Bellagio, waar je het echte toerisme vindt. Vanuit Mandello kun je flinke bergtochten met huttenovernachtingen maken, zorg dan echter dat je ergens een goed wandelkaart koopt, die vind je niet in Mandello. Verbazingwekkend hoe weinig toeristisch deze plaats (nog) is.
De eigenaar van het appartement is vriendelijk en hulpvaardig.
Nous avons passé 2 semaines très agréables dans cet appartement plein de charme et très fonctionnel. Nos deux hôtes Luca et Clara nous ont accueillis très chaleureusement. Merci encore pour le bresaola et le tiramisu!
Mandello est idéal avec de jeunes enfants (jeux, lido), moins touristique que la rive ouest et tout aussi charmant.
Everything was perfect , Luca was the perfect host , it was like going on Holliday I'm your grand ma's house in the country . With all the modern comfort . A house with a beautifully Soul . We loved it .
We had a wonderful stay at the appartment. Nice location in a small town 5 min. walk from the lake. Luca is a great and helpful host with lots of suggestions on what to see and visit. The appartment is well equipped and has room enough for a family of 4. If you wish to visit a non touristic place on the Como lake you should go to Mandello del Lario. Thank you for 6 wounderful days in your appartment.
Nous avons passé un très bon séjour et remercions Luca et sa tante pour leur accueil.
The appartement is very cozy and we felt very comfortable and enjoyed our stay so much! The kitchen is well equiped, we missed absolutely nothing.
Luca and his aunt Clara were great hosts and gave us many tips. Thanks again Clara for the reservation at the "La Selvaggia", it was really a special evening for us!
Mandello is a small town, but very nice, the people are friendly and there are also enough restaurants, gelaterias and bakerys. It's quiet and cheaper there, but still close to the major tourist spots such as Bellagio and Varenna.
We would not hesitate to stay there again.
This is a lovely villa in a non touristy town located on the site of Lake Como. It is ten minutes or less walk from the town centre and beach. It is upstairs and surrounded by a big garden. It is very well equipped - ideal if you want to do some cooking in a real Italian kitchen; so many pots and pans and utensils for an airbnb place. Beds are comfortable and windows open wide for hot days. There is v even quite good cable TV and WiFi worked well for me. Sofa bed is fine. This is an old place that has been done up in a really nice way. Luca is a great host; he was waiting for us when we arrived quite late at night. Thank you!
perfect guests, couldn't ask for more!
