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!
Guestbook comments from the owner
We had a fantastic and calm stay at Nick's place. The apartment looks exactly as shown on the pictures. We didn't meet Nick but we had an easy and friendly communication with him and his recommendations were very helpful. We loved our stay and would highly recommend it.

Absolutely wonderful, great stay, great apartment!
Absolutely perfect stay. Great property, exactly as the pictures show with all the amenities mentioned. Couldn't of had a better stay. Couple of issues due to past residents/general wear and tear but i mentioned these to the landlord who immediately got in touch and rectified things. Laglio is a lovely little lakeside village - plenty to do around the lake too. Como is a 15-20 minute drive and they landlord explains local shops and amenities brilliantly. I'd love to stay again and highly recommend this place to anyone.
The apartment is great and is in a beautiful location.
The property is ideal for 4 people and has everything needed. It has a lovely garden with table and chairs. Very close to the lake. The little town is perfect for an away from it all holiday. Two nice restaurants and a few small shops. Boats will take you to all parts of the lake. A very relaxing holiday in a beautiful place .
Together with my wife and dog we enjoyed a two week stay this summer. Apart from the wifi internet connection and a broken drying rack everything was up to specification or better. We especially liked the nice design of and furniture in the apartment. Our dog was particularly happy to be able to run around on the lawn all day.
The owner (Nick) and our hostess (Cinzia) did a perfect job in providing descriptions and guidance beforehand as well as on arrival.
Lovely apartment in great location
This was our second trip to Lake Como (first was 10 years ago) and the apartment was just what we needed. A shame it did not have a pool though given the heat we experienced but that's what you should expect when you go in July!
Laglio holds a village party every second Sunday. If you are there on one of the Sunday nights, don't miss it. Simple local food cooked in front of you washed down with great local grog and a fantastic band to dance to. It was our first night and just what we needed after having been delayed at Edinburgh airport by lazy baggage handlers who were so slow putting the baggage on the plane that we missed two take-off slots.
Como and the roads running around it are much busier than ten years ago and at weekends it would appear that the whole of Italy goes out on their Italian motorbikes along the lakeside road, some of them at high speed and even higher noise levels.
You can't beat Lake Como though and the shopping in Como, if you're interested in that sort of thing, is great.
La Locanda del Cantiere restaurant, about 400m further north, was not nearly as nice as the aspect and decor. Good starter but it went downhill from there and average service. The Deli about 200m away is fantastic and really hospitable, they do plates of meat and cheese and drinks which are great. The Bar Lanterna was closed and looked like it was undergoing a (very slow) refurbishment as no activity at all.
This is a fantastic apartment in a great location. My partner and I and 2 friends stayed here for a week, and found it an excellent base for exploring this lovely area, The property is roomy, light, easily big enough for 4 adults, and equipped and furnished to a very high standard. A special mention must go to the beds - so comfortable, some of the best sleep of my life, although, that could have been the mountain air. The private outside area is elevated and has pretty views over the village onto the lake and mountains beyond. we ate breakfast outside every morning. The village of Laglio has to be one of the best on Como, it is small and quiet, but with facilities. The apartment is situated right in the village centre, a 1 minute walk from a lakeside bar /cafe, and virtually next door to a small but well stocked food market. Despite this, it is so quiet at night. The larger town of Cernobbio is a short distance away. Nick, the owner, was very easy to deal with, good, prompt communications. He obviously knows the area, with suggestions and advice of what to do, and places to go, thanks Nick ! We had a fabulous week here, hope to return soon, and would recommend it very highly.
La dolce vita!
My husband and I spent a wonderful couple of weeks in this gorgeous setting along with two friends. The property is very comfortable, well appointed and has lovely views over the lake - we didn't want to leave!
The property would be fantastic for a group of friends, a couples getaway or for a family holiday with plenty to do and a great open living area and sunny garden to enjoy.
Having a parking space also made it really easy to get out and explore the local area, sampling all the wonderful food and wine the region has to offer. We especially enjoyed the local trattorias in Cernobbio and there were some fabulous lakeside villas to visit.
The owners were very helpful when booking the holiday and left us plenty of inspiration on things to do and see.
All in all a first class holiday!
From the Owner
“Having visited and fallen in love with the area for the first time around 8 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!”

From the Owner
“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 1 bar. The apartment is directly off the lake road, so has unimpeded 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.”
