A very homely comfortable stay

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at Casa Margherita 2 in Como. It is a nice stroll to the centre of the city. Set in lovely gardens and surroundings, it felt very calming and was wonderful to hear the birds singing. It was ideal to be able to sit in the garden and enjoy a glass of complimentary wine. Thank you!

Gigliola was very kind and helpful, explaining things well. She suggested restaurants and nearby supermarkets etc and kindly organised transport for us to Milan when we left.

Many thanks Gigliola and Adriano! We hope to return.

Fantastic hosts! Lovely apartment.

  • 5 of 5

All the great comments we had read prior to booking helped us make the right choice and everything was right on. We will stay longer on our next trip. 3 nights was just not long enough. The location was perfect. We walked everywhere. Gigliola was so welcoming and we knew if we needed anything at all we just had to ask.

The apartment is spacious with a lovely view.

Charming, well-appointed and welcoming!

  • 5 of 5

Gigliona and Adriano are the kindest of hosts! Even before you enter their home you notice the inviting patio calling you for wine and cheese or whatever suits your fancy plus the gardens are beautiful and an obvious labor of love. Once inside you notice the welcome of the front entry and then the spaciousness of this beautiful apartment - you feel at home immediately. There is obvious care and attention to detail in every room from the generously prepared kitchen to the comfort of all rooms. I really loved the hand soap in the bathroom - small things make a difference too!

We walked everywhere and hiked the back hill one morning (e.g., 80 floors according to my phone app), ate great food and drank great wine.

Gigliona and Adriano are wonderful and caring hosts in a beautiful place worth staying for as long as you can get away!

Thank you Gigliona and Adriano!

Liz, Pete and Max

spacious, peaceful and homely

  • 5 of 5

We felt instantly at home in the apartment, especially after a very warm welcome from our hosts. We had everything we needed and our hosts gave us very useful information about the area and suggestions of things we could do. The villa was bright, airy and spacious and had a lovely view of the hills. The walk into the centre was no more than ten minutes and the area itself was quiet. We would highly recommend this property to other holiday makers.

Homely quiet comfortable accomodation in centre of Como.

  • 5 of 5

The accomodation was spacious, well equipped in a quiet safe area of Como. The apartment is a short walk 10 minutes to centre and lake with a number of shops 2 minutes away. Gigliola and her husband were very welcoming, friendly and helpful. I would definitely stay there again.

Comfortable and well located

  • 5 of 5

We found the apartment very comfortable for three adults, and well equipped for a stay longer than the three days we had in Como. Our hosts were very welcoming and helpful.The kitchen is very suitable for meals if required, and the hosts very keen to be of every assistance for shopping and other advice and information. The location is ideal, as it is close to the lakeside activities and yet in a quiet residential neighbourhood.
