The authentic Italian rural experience.
If you want an old home with modern amenities like USB ports to charge your cell phone, a great stove, and large comfortable beds, and an amazing view, this home is for you. It is not an easy stroll to restaurants or grocery, but we did not care. We cooked our own meals every night and sat on the patio to eat and drink wine and stare at the views. The supermarket Migross in Bellagio has great selections of meat and breads, but is not open on Mondays. The small mini market in Lezzeno has a few things in a pinch. You need though to buy dishwasher soap, and shower soap. None was provided. Also buy toilet paper and paper towels. We were out on adventures during the day, and back for the evening. Luckily, we always found a parking space. The bath towels could have been bigger, but showers and toilets worked well. There is a walking path just outside the door that leads to Nesso if you want to hike a little. This wonderful house is rustic and out of town, so a car is necessary. It was our kind of relaxing vacation. The lake was warm but the walk to it and back is not easy. Many steps. Good cardio workout. Our group of two couples would definitely stay again. We love Lake Como.
Dear Tara, thank you so much for your review and we are glad you enjoyed your stay! We will try to improve your small comment regarding facilities a the house. Kind regards, Family De Kraa
Beautiful house and views
Truly enjoyed staying at Casa Fitzcarraldo. All amenities were as described and the lake views are outstanding. Maybe a little tough to find depending on mode of transportation or for travelers not in the best of physical shape.
The homeowners were easily accessible to answer questions and their suggestions for touring and restaurants were excellent.
Thank you Gary and glad you had a good stay! Although it is possible to use public transport and taxi around the lake, a (rented) car normally gives you most flexibility. Walking/hiking is also possible but as the mountains are quite steep this indeed requires some fitness. We hope we may welcome you again some time! Kind regards, family De Kraa
We recently stayed with family and friends at this house. It was a little more isolated than we realized with a 1km walk to the nearest alimentari, and 2 km walk to the ferry dock. However, it was peaceful with amazing views. We loved the patio and grilled out there a few times.
The living areas in house are super comfy and the kitchen was really well-appointed. We were especially happy to have a filter coffee machine ;-)
We had a few minor questions and issues during our stay and the owners we very quick to respond to e-mails.
Beautiful house! Would love to come back
Unique terrace and just a few minute walk from the lake. Easy to get around with the bikes provided.
What an exciting place and what an unforgettable view!!!
We enjoyed our stay at casa Fitzcarraldo very much! Beautiful place and a very cosy house.
Thank you, we are glad you enjoyed your stay!
Mysigt hus med fantastisk utsikt!
Vi är mycket nöjda med vår resa till casa fitzcarraldo. Huset var stort och vi hade inga problem att få plats(5 vuxna och 2 barn) Bra kök med allt man kunde behöva. Fantastisk utsikt från sovrummen och uteplatsen. Lantligt och det kändes som man kommit till det riktiga Italien. Stranden var lite mindre än vi trodde och det fanns en del glas och skräp där men det gick bra bara man hade badskor med sig. Mysig by som hade några mataffärer, restauranger och en bar med jättetrevlig personal. Kan rekommendera pizzeria Helvetia längre bort på gatan (ca 1-2km). Finns en bra stig att gå om man inte vill gå på bilvägen. (Se karta på parkeringen)
Terrassen utanför huset var fantastisk men vi fick vakta på vårat yngsta barn då det inte fanns några staket utan endast låga buskar och sen fritt fall ner till den steniga vägen. Men vi är väldigt nöjda med vår vistelse och skulle gärna komma tillbaka! Mvh Lotta med familj

Once on the road along the lake winds follow it to hectometersign 20.4 and take a sharp turn right towards Sormazzana, follow the road to the car park at the end. From here it is 50 meters away.
