Worth it for the view alone. But there was so much more...
From the moment you arrive at this property you are not on holiday. This is probably the first holiday we have taken that didn't feel like one, as you become one of the locals
The property was spacious ,well maintained and fully equipped to enable us to have a really relaxing stay. There was a T.V. which was never switched on as we had our view of Lake Como. But what really made our holiday was the warmth and hospitality shown by Erica and her family. They made us feel so welcome without being intrusive. Our little one had full use of their pool and often splashed around with Erica's 2 children. We were given great advise about days out , local attractions and the best places to shop for fantastic Italian food. Not that you needed too much as "Nonna" would often visit us with home cooked Tiramisu , a beautiful apple cake and freshly picked plumb tomatoes from her kitchen garden.
Located at the North of Lake Como, our property was perfectly suited for the town of Gravedona which was a lovely 12 minute stroll away, with lovely local restaurants, cafes, ice cream and the Como ferry stop. We also spent an afternoon at the local beach on the lake.
By staying at a local property we got great advice on local activities , like mountain hiking, a day trip to Saint Moritz and how to survive a trip to Milan!! Best of all was the local restaurant called Ajo, Erica also called and got lake side reservations for us!!
We will definitely be returning to this property and would 100% recommend it if you want the perfect Italian escape.
Would not hesitate to stay here again, especially with a toddler.
Excellent Accommodation - Highly Recommended !
We stayed here for one week and found the apartment to be exactly as described and very spacious and clean.
The view from the balcony over Lake Como is truly amazing - exactly as shown in the photos.
Restaurants, cafes, shops and a supermarket are all within an easy 10/15 minute walking distance.
Erica & her lovely family were very kind and most helpful on providing any information which we required.
Thank you for your hospitality in welcoming us to your wonderful Gravedona location :)
Wonderful place with great hosts
My wife and our twin ten-year old girls stayed here for two nights in June. The apartment is very spacious with a great terrace overlooking Lake Como. What truly stood out, though, was the wonderful hospitality of Erica and her family. They had lots of material about ferries and had even gone out of the way to find a place for us to park overnight when we took the Bernina Express after we left. Best of all was the incredible dinner that Erica's mother (or was it her mother-in-law?), a retired chef, made for us on our last night to eat on the terrace. For a truly reasonable price, we had a delicious home-cooked meal of fresh fish, risotto, salad, and even chicken tenders for the kids (though they actually liked the fish more, which is really saying something!). I would strongly recommend staying here to anyone who wants a little slice of heaven as a base for touring beautiful Lake Como. Don't miss Villa Carlotta in Tremezzo if you come---a beautiful home and gardens right across the lake from Belaggio. We loved Lake Como, Gravedona, and this very special home. Thank you, Erica!
Incredible aparment and location
A great apartment, with an exceptional view, extremely clean and within walking distance to everything, the supermarket, pharmacy, shops, lake. It was also very quiet so that made it much more relaxing.
From the living room and bedrooms as well as the large balcony we had the most beautiful view of the Lake Como and the mountains. It was breath taking!
What can I say about the owners, well, they were exceptional. Very helpful and concerned that our stay was a memorable one . Thank you to the family for a great stay and we hope to be back soon.
Tks Pauline for your nice comment. We hope your next trip to Germany went ok. Since your stay has occured almost towards the end of Summer we didn't have the chance to offer you a taste of our organic tomatoes and courgettes as they were finished. Anyway we do hope to have managed to give you some local taste through the chestnuts we roasted on the fireplace. We really enjoyed talking with your husband about sky. We do hope to see you again here on Lake Como or in your beautiful Canada where we've already been and would love to come back. Stay in touch!!! Erica, Valerio and the whole family.
Schöne Ferienwohnung mit traumhaftem Blick
Empfangen wird man von sehr gastfreundlichen Vermietern.
Die große Wohnung ist mit allem ausgestattet, an nichts mangelt es, man wird auch auf vielen liebevollen Details der Einrichtung aufmerksam. In den Betten haben wir uns von den täglichen Aktivitäten bestens erholt. Und dann das Frühstück auf dem Balkon oder der abendliche Aufenthalt dort mit einem herrlichen Blick über den See und den Ort, einfach umwerfend. Dazu das Verwöhnangebot der Gastgeber, Gemüse und Gewürze aus dem hauseigenen Garten zu nutzen. Nicht unerwähnt soll der Grillplatz mit dem Essplatz unter der Kiwi-Pergola bleiben sowie das erfrischende Bad im Pool im Garten.
Die Uferpromenade mit Restaurants und Eisdielen ist in fußläufiger Reichweite, ebenso lohnt sich ein Spaziergang am See entlang nach Domaso oder Dongo.
Besser konnte der Urlaub am Comer See nicht sein, hierher kommt man gern noch einmal wieder.
Besten Dank auch hier an Erica und ihre ganze Familie!
