Steve

Thank you for all the help we received from your company when we booked for the week 6th to 13th September. The property was great and we enjoyed meeting Laura. Laura was a great owner and gave us loads of information. She was helpful but very discreet. We had a GREAT holiday in a beautiful apartment. We had some difficulty finding the villa as we arrived VERY late due to the Italian Strike, uckily we got seats on the afternoon flight but we arrived in the dark !!! What a pleasure it was to walk into such a lovely place. Thank you to everyone.

Thank you for a super stay! With a fabulous sunny lake view terrace just perfect for sunbathing and enjoying our alfresco meals on! The boys were real fans of the exposed stone walls of the TV room and Carl and Humphrey really enjoyed the close proximity from Carate Urio to the Golf club at Villa D'Este. The holiday home suited us so well and its generous living space and room sizes were made even more pleasant by contemporary fittings, antique furniture and lots of luxury mod cons. Thank you again for making us feel so happy and welcome here!

Lovely apartment with stunning terrace. Plenty of room for an extended family, but our smaller party felt equally at home. All facilities provided, including washing m/c and hairdryers. Very clean throughout and comfortable beds. Owner, Laura, was very helpful and charming without being intrusive. She provided extra bedding when thunderstorms forecast, just in case. Large terrace provided extensive views of the Lake, lovely beyond description, sunny till late. Full kitchen facilities but several excellent cafes/restaurants within walking distance for breakfast, lunch, dinner. Easy access to Como and other places on Lake by boat - don't miss Bellagio. Supermarket in Como with stunning fresh produce. Secure private parking space (much needed!). Only issue is 40 uneven steps up to apartment entrance - not suitable for disabled. Plus side of this was excellent views from apartment but a bit of a shock when we received final details of location. Fully recommend this apartment and location. Easy distance from Milan Malpensa by car. So sorry to leave, real home from home.
