Lovely appartment in the heart of Cenobbio. Worth to arrange parking at the Hotel as street parking is limited. Recommend the use of the boat trips to different areas on the lake to explore as limited things to do in Cernobbio if staying for 1 week. Mr & Mrs Gorini were really helpfull on arrival and during our stay

Wonderful stay, excellent hosts, fantastic location!! Hated to leave.

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I were in Italy for our honeymoon and to attend the Concorso d'Eleganza di Villa d'Este. Apartment was extremely clean and exactly as pictured with a comfortable bed. Cara and Guiseppe were always quick to respond and incredibly helpful. They even arranged parking at a near-by hotel, which was amazing on such a busy weekend. This was the perfect location to explore Lake Como and a 5 minute walk to both Villa d'Este and Villa Erba. 100% recommend.

Great location by Lake Como

  • 5 of 5

Well-equipped apartment in a great location in the centre of Cernobbio. I agree with another reviewer that the apartment is more spacious than it appears in the photos. A few minutes walk to the ferry, to the well-connected bus services or to local restaurants and shops. Highly recommended

Charming Apartment in the heart of Cernobbio

  • 5 of 5

This is the perfect apartment for your Italian getaway. My BF and I stayed here while attending a wedding at Villa de Este and it was lovely. A quick 2 minute walk down cobblestone streets and through town led to Villa de Este and you're only several meters to the lake where you can catch a ferry to lake como or any of the surrounding cities. The apartment is nestled right in the middle of town, with a lovely cafe on the street below and an excellent wine store on the corner. You wake up to church bells and delicious smells from nearby bakeries. Cara and her husband are wonderful hosts! They've thought of every detail that makes your stay one you'll never forget and they were extremely helpful and accommodating to our schedule and providing suggestions on where to eat and what to do while there. I can't recommend this place enough!

Wonderful and serene holiday

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Cara and Giuseppe's apartment in May 2016. The apartment is charming but also spacious and very well equipped. It is close to the Lake and only minutes from many restaurants and bars - choices of both busy and quiet to suit your mood! Cernobbia is an exceptional location as one can enjoy beautiful views of the lake and mountains without being as crowded as some other towns. The secret garden walk is worth exploring. Thanks Cara and Giuseppe !

Close enough, yet far enough away

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed at Cara and Giuseppe's wonderful apartment in July this year for a portion of our honeymoon while driving north to south in Italy. It was absolutely perfect. We truly felt as if we were part of the community even though we were only there for a short time. There were fantastic restaurants within 50m and the lake was less than a 2 min walk away. Cernobbio is 2 ferry stops from Como (approx. 12min). It was great seeing the landscape from the water and you really got to appreciate how quiet and not touristy Cernobbio was compared to Como. We loved every minute and the accommodation itself was outstanding. We had a car so parked it in the Hotel car park for 10EUD per night which Giuseppe arranged for us. A great stay all round and I would highly recommend!
