Lovely stay in Laglio
This Laglio apartment had exceptional views of the Lake which is definitely a prerequisite for a stay at Lake Como. The pool was beautiful and was used every afternoon by our children.
The kitchen was very well appointed and the living room was quite large as was the Verandah.
There were 2 bathrooms.
This apartment also had washing facilities which for our family of 4 was essential.
Some improvements that could be made was the bedroom linen , pillows and blankets now need to be updated. Small touches such as soap for the shower and provision of some pods for the coffee machine would also be nice. On the whole though a very enjoyable stay.
Thank you Rachel, glad you enjoyed your stay. All new bedding and linen purchased! Appreciate the advice. If you had contacted us during your stay we would have organised with pleasure and responded to your request immediately.
Great location for exploring Lake Como, Laglio is quaint & the apartment offers great views
We stayed here as a family of four including 2 small boys and had a wonderful holiday. The apartment was lovely, light and clean with comfortable bedrooms and good bathrooms.
The balcony had plenty of furniture for sitting outside and enjoying the stunning view of the lake. The apartments garden was split on different levels and the pool was on the other side of the building.
Our eldest son absolutely loved the pool but the youngest (age 3) found it a bit cold and without a shallow area to paddle in didn’t venture in too much. On the hotter days of our stay we missed not having an umbrella for some shade and we had to move around some garden furniture so that we could enjoy the sun and watch the children by the pool. This was ok though and we had the pool area to ourselves most of the time.
We struggled with the WiFi connection and tv signal - probably due to a storm, as it was working when we first arrived. We used the opportunity to break from the routine of tv and internet!
Laglio is a lovely village and we found it easy to drive to other towns along the lake or access the Ferry. A little shop, restaurants, butchers and amazing ice creams, the children loved the little playground over the road.
I wish we had requested a welcome pack/hamper in advance as there was nothing provided and the local shop was closed when we arrived and we had to drive back to Como to get to a supermarket.
I would recommend this apartment to other similar families, couples, friends.
Thank you Claudia for your review, it was lovely to meet you and your family.
Glad you enjoyed the stay, the home and Laglio and taking the time to write,
Yes the pool is slighter cooler in May, although I have been swimming for a month now, it soon warms up when you take a dip! Its much warmer from June ownards. Most pools on the lake do not open till June, here we open mid April.
Thank you for mentioning the wifi on departure as we have called an engineer to test all working.
The apartment is self catering however there are basic condiments provided and we provide the welcome pack and hamper service with pleasure. The garden and terrace area are split into 3 parts so usually guests use the shaded area or garden to suit however if a guest requires an umbrella we are happy to provide one.
Thank you once more Claudia for recommending us, we look forward to welcoming you back in the future.
Peacefulness and beauty
We came back to this beautiful small village Laglio, to the same apartment where we stayed years earlier. Service was excellent as always, the lake view is spectacular, we enjoyed every single minute! One day skiing - on other day having a boat trip - such an incredible experience! See you next time!
Stylish apartment in charming lakeside village
We had a lovely week in Laglio and really enjoyed exploring the lower end of the lake as well as getting to know the village itself which is charming. We were lucky to be there when the festi degli Alpini was taking place and were made to feel very welcome at this village event. The apartment is in a wonderful position to enjoy the lake views and had everything we needed- the pool was especially welcome due to the very warm weather.
Thank you again to Julie for booking us a perfect lakeside table at Crotto dei platani. The view was stunning and food excellent.
Looking forward to coming back to Lake Como in the future. Thank you again for making our holiday run smoothly.
WOW! What a find!
From the first moment we stepped into this apartment we fell in love with it. Our first time was 2014 and we've been back several times since at different times of the year. Our last time was December 2016, my boyfriend and I took my parents for a festive treat and we've just re-booked to go back with my teenage sons for Easter. It really makes no difference what the time of year, one thing that remains constant is the outstanding lakeside view which is perfectly showcased through the panoramic floor to ceiling vista from this apartment. Wether from the comfort of the extra large sofa looking towards the snow capped mountains in winter, or from outside lounging on the patio furniture watching the sun rise over the mountain in summer, the views are always a visual feast. The gardens and pool are all on different levels but all offer the same awesome views.
The apartment itself is very comfortable for 4 people with a double and twin room, ample wardrobe space and 2 lovely modern bathrooms. I've cooked in the kitchen quite a few times during our numerous visits as there's a shop next door selling fresh meats and other italian goodies which occasionally makes a welcome alternative to our usual restaurant over-indulgence!
We always rent a car to explore as there's so much the Lake has to offer and so many little villages all offering different things as well as a vast array of different eateries. Unfortunately for our greedy waistlines, it is a foody's paradise! There is everything on offer here from fine dining, simple trattorias, icecream parlours, street food and the free food in every bar at happy hour is unbelievable! Prepare to gain weight if you holiday here!
This apartment is an ideal base for Lake Como! It's even on the right side of the Lake to make the most of the sun all day long if staying home. Every time we go we discover something new. Private boat hire, sea plane, amazing shops, outstanding lakeside walks, magnificent villas (especially Balbianello!), 5 minute ferry to Belaggio of course,I could write forever recommending all my favourite places but that would spoil the surprise!! I can't wait to take my boys at Easter. So in short, WHAT A GEM!! Perfect apartment, perfect location... Exciting lake waiting to be explored! What are you waiting for?
We stayed here last summer and had a wonderful time. Initially we were disappointed our original home we chose was not available however Barrie quickly called us to offer this neighbouring home which worked out just fine. The home has views you can only dream of and the decor is very modern and tasteful. The ensuite bathroom was a nice touch whilst the second bathroom is literally outside the twin bedroom. The garden gave us complete privacy as the home and gardens are located on the opposite side of the pool which was a real benefit as we could swim each day (we only ever saw other residents use the pool of a late afternoon or on the sunday of our arrival) and then relax in our garden it was like having our own private villa. Laglio as i think the other reviewes mentioned when we were searching for a home, is a very quiet spot with a handful of restaurants, wine bar, mini market and butchers and gave us an insight of italian life from yesteryear. All of which we could walk to very easily.I think this makes the place gain an extra magical and mystical feel as it really is like stepping back in time as you walk around the little streets alongside the lake, we really did love out time here. We were recommended to hire a car and glad we took the advice in order that we could access the supermarket, ferry and larger shops and village which are all found 10 minutes or less from the home. We enjoyed afternoon tea at the 5 star Villa D este close by arranged as a treat for my birthday, right on the lakeside, expensive but worth it! The property does have a private garage although we parked the car all week below the steps to the home each day. A special thanks to Julie who met us on arrival and could not do enough to ensure we were settled in. We have already recommended this home to our friends as we think Laglio is a great location.
