Guestbook comments from the manager


Rated:5 of 5

Ein wirklich perfekter Urlaub

Ein wunderschöner Ort um zu entspannen, zu erholen und um ausflüge zu gestalten.

Für unsere drei kleinen Kinder war es ein Urlaub den sie nie vergessen werden. Es wurde ein Pool für die kleinen aufgebaut, Schwimmwesten waren immer griffbereit und Eric hatte immer für ein Spässchen Zeit. Unsere Kleinen (7,4,4 Jahre alt) reden noch sehr oft von Eric. Es sind doch die Menschen die einen Ort und den Urlaub so besonders machen und genau hier findet man diese Menschen, wie Eric zum Beispiel.

Wir kommen garantiert wieder...

Best place on Lake Como for families

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at Lake Como Beach Resort. Jennifer was very helpful and answered all of our questions. Our kids (ages 10 and 12) loved the kayaks and being able to jump in the lake easily. You can rent a boat if you want to explore the lake. There are a number of steps, but not too bad. The boat ferry is just a 5 minute walk and very easy to get around the lake. Eric was also very friendly and accommodating. My father stayed with us for the entire visit (7 days) and they provided a very comfortable extra bed for him. We will return!

Tranquility and beauty to feed the soul......

  • 5 of 5

LCBR is located in a very peaceful and tranquil setting, where the senses can be soothed in the beautiful outdoor space, listening to the lake lap onto the shore and watching boats bobing gently to and fro. The garden and private lakeside bathing area are more then adequately furnished with quality furnature, where every thought has been given to guests comfort. The viletta's are clean, comfortable and nicely furnished with beautiful views over the lake from a private balcony. The kitchen has everything one may need for 'holiday' cooking and most guests prepared food indoors and would eat out at the tables provided around the garden, this had a little community feel about it. There are also barbiques in the outdoor area which we used and would recomend.

We found Eric and his team to be friendly, helpful and professional. Eric has a wealth of information about the local area and was around the resort on a daily baisis to ensure that geusts had everything needed to enjoy thier holiday.

Pognana Lario itself is a quiet little village, with a cafe, supermarket with butcher and one resuarant, all three can meet your needs. We frequented Peppo's Cafe and felt like locals there, it was extremely friendly offering good homecooked food at resonable prices (you can buy bus tickets from Peppo's which is cheaper than buying on bus). The supermarket was also very friendy, stocking everthing you would need. We would recommend the butcher, particulrly for barbiqueing!!

Getting around Lake Como from Pognana is extremely easy; the ferry is a 5 minuite walk away and buses run frequently in both directions from outside Peppo's. We liked to take the ferry to Cernobio and then walk along the walk way (about 5K) to Como spend the day there and then take a ferry back to Pognana.

A peaceful base for couples to explore Lake Como.

Pretty location, friendly staff, with a few design issues

  • 4 of 5

Met owner Eric when we checked in, very personable, helpful, and knowledgeable, using his connections in the area to secure us a late dinner reservation. The location is lakefront, arrived at after traversing a LOT of poorly-installed steps and one elevator (be careful and walk slowly.) the apartments are nicely set up with lake view and balcony, four burner stove and decent sized refrigerator. And they can meet emergency needs, like coffee. It is well situated, a walk to lake ferry, and there is a Bellagio-Como bus a 10-minute walk up the hill (one of the greatest bus rides del mondo).

Problems are little design issues, and electronic. We specifically took this place because of the WiFi so we could be in contact and for a day of work, but it was spotty at best; I spent an hour of my precious vacation time over a week struggling with WiFi connections on my iPad (I later found no problem with my MacBook), which we were using to plan our days. Better not to advertise it than have it work intermittently; I could have rented my own WiFi hotspot for a week for €20 and been better off.

Design issues: the apartment is not air conditioned. Not normally a problem, but when temps get into the 90s, you need to take action. You now face the choice of mosquitoes, because there are no screens, or dealing with internal temperatures in the 80s. Also, the sleeping quarters are upstairs, and hot air rises, so it was a 5-6 degree difference, and there was no way to vent the heat from the second floor. Installing a fan into the ceiling (low sones, quiet bath fan, perhaps) to vent the heat could solve this problem. Alternately, including an extension cord (because outlets are few and poorly distributed) in the standard equipment would allow for better use of the two fans supplied to draw in cool air. First, screens. Last design issue is that walls are thin and you can hear squeaks and conversations from nearby apartments.

Suggestions to the owners: buy a chimney fire starter for the grills. Find a way to get screens on the bedroom windows. Have at least one 4-meter extension cord in each unit. Have the maid soak the shower head in white vinegar after each guest departs to dissolve the lime that blocks many of the holes through which water flows. Find a way to add counter space in the bathrooms, which are non-functional.

If you come at a cool time and do not care about Internet access over WiFi, you'll have an enjoyable stay here.

Owner's Response: Ciao! Thank you for the review of LCBR. We are pleased you enjoyed your time with us. To quickly address your concerns: The location of LCBR originally a metal factory, was built in 1905 but the gardens and steps are much older (hundreds of years old) and was all made by hand lending to some unevenness. The WiFi has always been good. I apologize you had such difficulties and would have addressed it right away had I known it was inconsistent, as we were full and no one else mentioned the troubles. August is the hottest time of the year and 2015 has been one of the warmest on record at the lake and throughout Europe. That said, the heat is not typical. Past years the lake breeze and fans have been sufficed but we appreciate your comments and will consider a/c, a ceiling fan and its costs for 2016. Thank you for your suggestions and we hope to see you again on Lake Como and the Lake Como Beach Resort. Eric and Robin
