Overview

About the property

90sqm duplex apartment with 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms

Set in the heart of Como's beautiful old town, this duplex is a traditional northern-Italian style apartment, located at the top of an historic building. Enter the building via a picturesque passage off Piazza Giuseppe Mazzini, and enjoy a truly relaxing holiday, with Lake Como just a 5-minute walk away.

Located at the top of the building, the apartment is very quiet, and spread across two floors, there’s plenty of space for everyone. The first floor comprises an open-plan dining room with seating for 6 people, a kitchen, including Nepresso machine and capsules, and an elegant living area with a comfortable sofa bed and an Apple TV. Directly off the kitchen is a small washroom, continuing through to a generous-sized first bathroom, with a shower, toilet, washer/dryer and bidet.

Double doors off the living room lead onto a long, narrow balcony and there is a quiet, wall-mounted split air-conditioning unit that adequately keeps the downstairs area cool, even on the hottest of summer days.

Upstairs there are two bedrooms and another large bathroom. The rooms are lovely and light thanks to skylights, while black-out blinds ensure a great night’s sleep for everyone. The main bedroom has a queen-size bed and another quiet air-conditioning unit, the smaller with two single beds and a Dyson cooling unit for hot nights.

For the cooler months, there are radiators with gas central heating in each room, including the bathrooms. The apartment is well equipped for a young family, with toys, books and DVDs that will entertain children and adults alike, as well as free WiFi.

Amazing as the apartment may be, you’ll want to make the most of its spectacular surrounds. Boats are also available for hire for the day and for longer periods so that you can enjoy Lake Como at your own pace.

End cleaning, linen and towels are all included in the rental price.

There is public parking nearby, smoking is allowed outside only and pets are not welcome. The property is child-friendly and has a lift.

WE LOVE

• The luxurious interiors

• The modern yet charming feel

• The unbeatable location near Como’s famous sights

Excellent base for a pleasant stay in Como

  • 5 of 5

Our family very much enjoyed our stay in this cozy, clean, and tastefully furnished apartment. The kitchenette is well equipped and fully functional; the main upstairs bathroom is large and has modern facilities; and the wood-paneled bedrooms feature comfortable beds.

We made good use of the clothes washer and took full advantage of the reliable internet connection.

The apartment is conveniently located only steps from the central lake front area, in a vibrant commercial district that features an abundance of shops and restaurants. Despite being located in the midst of everything, the apartment is extremely quiet, as it looks out over an interior courtyard that is completely isolated from street noise.

Those who come with a car should be alerted that finding parking in Como can be challenging. We ended up parking in the underground car park located several blocks away, which was convenient enough but somewhat expensive at Euros 20 per day.

Wendy proved to be an accommodating and gracious host who made booking, accessing the apartment, and departure very easy.

All in all an excellent base for a pleasant stay in Como.

The apartment is in the perfect location for whatever activities you have in mind. Take a 5-minute walk to explore magnificent Lake Como and to find ferries to other towns along the lake, including a fast boat to the world-famous, picturesque town of Bellagio. A 5-minute walk will also take you to Como train station (why not jump on a 40-minute fast train to Milan?), and a 20-minute drive will take you to the Foxtown outlet shopping centre in Switzerland.

You’ll have just a 5-minute walk to the Duomo and Como’s main square, with many wonderful restaurants, cafes and bars (ask the owner for recommendations).
