About the property

Garden Apartment in Laglio, Lake Como Italy - stunning lake views & fantastic S/E facing garden

New for 2018: we now have a secure underground parking space for guests underneath Regina Residence and upgraded wi-fi (finally!).

Situated on the western shore about 12kms up the lake, on the quieter lake road, Laglio is one of the most beautiful villages on Lake Como. The village itself has a bar, several restaurants and shops, including a post office and deli. Regina Residence is a beautiful, converted metal mill on the edge of Lake Como that has been split into a small number of apartments. The ground floor corner apartment is newly converted and has the added benefit of having the largest garden of Regina Residence, facing the sun all day! The luxury apartment has a large double bedroom and another large bedroom that can be set as a double or twin. The fully equipped, bespoke granite kitchen has an adjourning dining and lounge area with large French doors opening directly out onto the garden, a 32 inch flat screen TV with Sky and a Hi-Fi/DVD player. Regina Residence is securely gated with lift access. The apartment is suitable for children and for the elderly.

About Nick

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!

Nick purchased this apartment in 2007

Why Nick chose Laglio

Having visited and fallen in love with the area for the first time around 10 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.

What makes this apartment unique

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 a bar. The apartment is directly off the lake road and has fantastic 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.

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.

Perfect apartment in perfect location

  • 5 of 5

If you’re looking for the perfect family apartment on Lake Como, look no further. The apartment is a great size, beautifully decorated, very modern and clean and with its own parking space. The location is a little town with two fantastic restaurants, a ‘cafe’ which serves food you’d find in high end delis in the U.K. and ice cream to die for, and a little convenience store for essentials. We went to Ballagio for the day and while it was nice, we were so relieved to be back in Laglio. It’s also close to Cernabbio and easy to get to Milan.

Nick was unbelievably helpful and responded to questions within minutes. He also arranged a cot and high chair, along with some plates for the little ones.

Cinzia, who we met to exchange keys was so helpful, even helping to arrange a babysitter for us! Both Nick and Cinzia couldn’t do enough.

Seriously, I can not imagine staying anywhere else in Lake Como. We felt at home instantly and didn’t want to leave!

Apartment close to lake but view obscured by trees

  • 3 of 5

The property was as described except for the 'amazing views'. The plot of land between the garden of the apartment and the lake is full of tall trees which block the view of the lake and this was not what we had expected from the description. The apartment was comfortable and clean. When we notified Nick, the owner, of some broken items he arranged for them to be replaced immediately which was great. He also very kindly arranged for some fans as we were staying during a heatwave. He provided an excellent service. Cinzia, the host, was also very helpful and organised an underground parking space for us which was extremely useful.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review and I'm pleased you had a great time and we were able to help with your requests. The trees and hedges have grown up over the last few weeks and have now been cut back as much as we can - we are unable to do anything about the tall trees in the garden immediately below us unfortunately, but there are now unobstructed views of the amazing lake either side of them!

Absolutely wonderful, great stay, great apartment!

  • 5 of 5

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 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 .

Great apartment

  • 4 of 5

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.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind review and we're glad you had a great stay! It seems the Wi-Fi had run out of data, so the problem was easily solved with a top-up. We hope to see you again!
