Recent Lake Como reviews
Very comfortable and centrally located on lake
"We thoroughly enjoyed our two week stay at Glicine House. We rented a car at the airport and it was about a 1 hour 40 minute drive from Milan. The apartment was clean, comfortable and had all the amenities to make our stay enjoyable. We especially appreciated the washer, drip coffee maker and toaster. It is in a central location on the lake so made it easy to use the ferry to get around. There is a foot path right outside the apartment so you can quickly get down the hill to the lake, however, it is good aerobic exercise going back up. Also being so close to Switzerland we took the Bernina Express train ride out of Tirano to St Moritz and back for a day trip. Absolutely breathtaking scenery. As we learned from previous reviews, there is a small grocer and a neighborhood bar (La Vecchia Torre) a short distance up the hill and a mini-mart and restaurant (Bar Company) at the bottom of the hill which we visited many times. Our favorite restaurant was Rodrigo in Cadenabbia. Cantina Follie is a fun wine bar in Tremezzo which is about a 15 minute walk."

"Our family of 4 were very comfortable in the 2 bedroom apartment. We had a stunning view of the Lake from all 3 balconies, and enjoyed and watching the lake come to life with ferries, boats and seaplanes.
The huge private garden with great lake views was great to lounge around and catch the sunshine and enjoy the sunset.The property is in the small village of Blevio, in May there was just the one restaurant open but such as beautiful restaurant is, Momi's is down at the lake beside the stop for the ferry boat about a 10min walk. There are plenty of old roman steps which kept us fit.
After the view the next best thing about this apartment is the location it is only about 5min drive or bus ride to Como city which we really enjoyed. Initially I found the drive a big winding and narrow but I got used to is quickly and having a private parking space was great as parking is in short supply here.
The old town of Como is really worth a visit and we dined in a number of restaurants and we and our teenage girls really enjoyed the "long" pizzas in Riva Restaurant at the lake front.
Although we had a hire car we sometimes we took the bus and got a taxi back home to allow the parents to have some drinks. TIP: Buy bus tickets at the bus terminus in Como as you can't buy on the bus. Tickets cost 1.50 euro for a one way journey. There 2 flights of steps up to the apartment so not suitable it steps are a problem for you. All in all I would come back, location great, view spectacular."
