Garden Apartment in Laglio, Lake Como Italy - stunning lake views & fantastic S/E facing garden
Hi, I'm Nick - I live and work in London but spend as much time as I can in Lake Como as it is simply the most beautiful place in the world!
Nick purchased this Apartment in 2007
Why Nick chose Laglio
Having visited and fallen in love with the area for the first time around 10 years ago, I ended up persuading my brother to buy the apartment with me - we still can't believe our luck that we now own it.
What makes this Apartment unique
Laglio is one of only 4 villages along this stretch of the lake that benefit from access via the small, lake road, as opposed to the main road. As such it is beautifully quiet and lazy village, with just a few shops, restaurants and a bar. The apartment is directly off the lake road and has fantastic views of beautiful Lake Como from our garden. The apartment is suitable for 1 or 2 couples or a family and is equipped with a cot and high chair as well as a baby box containing a few essentials such as a nightlight and bath thermometer to make life a bit easier for you. Upon arrival you will be met by a local host who will show you around the apartment, provide you with keys and be available at any time to help out.

Great stay with a wonderful host. Would highly recommend this apartment.
We had a great stay in Nicks apartment. He was super helpful in the lead up as I had numerous questions - he and the house keeper even helped to organise a babysitter.
The apartment is comfortable and has everything you need, including fans which were a must in Italy's hot muggy summer.
The only small problems we had were the bath/shower seemed to have some drainage issues and always filled up while showering. Something which I'm sure can be easily fixed.
My only other recommendation would be to provide some basic cooking ingredients like oil.
Otherwise I think this place was lovely with a beautiful setting outside, and I would stay again. Also very affordable for the area.
Thanks for a great stay!!!
Thanks for you great review and we're glad you had a great time!
Thanks for pointing out the bath issue - it is an easy fix and we always advise guests just let us know at the time and we can get someone on it immediately.
We look forward to seeing you again!
Ideal piece of heaven. A great apartment complete with all facilities necessary to make a hassle free trip with added bonus of a lovely garden. Nick was very prompt at responding to any enquires and Ciniza was a gem, such a lovely lady who couldn’t do enough for you. The village was perfect, small but well equipped with bar, restaurants and a shop for essentials and great position for exploring the villages along the stunning lake. A brilliant trip enjoyed by all even the teenagers!
Stunning location and ideal Apt. Garden area was a bonus.
Beautiful Apt and stunning location. Perfect for exploring the Como area.
Stunning location, beautiful property everything needed for a great holiday!
First time in Italy and this property opened our eyes to a beautiful part of the world. Great apartment with stunning views, quiet location but with lots of attractions within easy driving distance. Cinzia friendly and helpful on arrival and departure and Nick Walker couldn’t be more helpful when we booked. The info pack also as comprehensive as I’ve seen. The only problem is it’ll be too long till I visit again!!
Thanks for the great review Colin and glad you had a brilliant first time on the lake - it is a truly beautiful place!
Great apartment, very spacious, very well equipped and very clean. The outside space was amazing, with views, seating and bbq. Great information before hand which was very useful. Lake Como is beautiful. Please note that when sat nav says you are an hour away from this apartment - you are not!! The traffic on a Saturday is crazy, especially if you go the scenic route as we did!! Con Zia was very accommodating with our estimated arrival. Would definitely stay here again.
Perfect apartment in perfect location
If you’re looking for the perfect family apartment on Lake Como, look no further. The apartment is a great size, beautifully decorated, very modern and clean and with its own parking space. The location is a little town with two fantastic restaurants, a ‘cafe’ which serves food you’d find in high end delis in the U.K. and ice cream to die for, and a little convenience store for essentials. We went to Ballagio for the day and while it was nice, we were so relieved to be back in Laglio. It’s also close to Cernabbio and easy to get to Milan.
Nick was unbelievably helpful and responded to questions within minutes. He also arranged a cot and high chair, along with some plates for the little ones.
Cinzia, who we met to exchange keys was so helpful, even helping to arrange a babysitter for us! Both Nick and Cinzia couldn’t do enough.
Seriously, I can not imagine staying anywhere else in Lake Como. We felt at home instantly and didn’t want to leave!
Wow, best review ever! Thank you so much - it was a pleasure to have you all and I'm glad you had an amazing time. We hope you made it to the Concorso d'Eleganza at Villa d'Este, as planned.
The apartment is a stone's throw from the lake! Laglio has several small 'beaches' giving you direct access to the lake. The nearby villages of Moltrasio and Lenno have lakeside lido's for further direct access to the lake.
Milan Malpensa is approximately 50 minutes away. The other Milan airports of Linate and Bergamo are just over an hour away.
Situated in the village of Laglio. Cernobbio, with some lovely little shops, waterfront bars and hotels is approximately 8kms away. The main large town of Como itself is 14km away. Milan approximately 60 kms away
Laglio has 3 restaurants, 3 hotels and several shops including a deli, a post office and a bar. The nearby towns of Carate Urio and Cernobbio have a lake ferry stop.
