Garden Apartment in Laglio, Lake Como, Italy - Peaceful Location, 3 Minutes Walk To Lake

Enjoy a lazy lunch, cocktails or dinner at the luxury 5 star Villa D'este or mix with the locals at one of the superb pizzerias or near by trattorias serving local specialities from lake fish to home made fresh pasta.

Daryl Birden, UK



We had a wonderful time. The flat had a beautiful view and we enjoyed the swimming pool every afternoon with the kids, would like to come back next summer.

Gaëlle DELARBOULAS, France



The apartment was lovely, modern & stylish and the views were amazing. Sitting on the balcony observing the lake, having a meal was extra special with outstanding scenery. The small village of Laglio is really pretty and has a few bars and restaurants to try. Exploring the lake by boats & ferries was great. L.Beaumont. UK.

Fantastic stay

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here last summer and had a wonderful time. Initially we were disappointed our original home we chose was not available however Barrie quickly called us to offer this neighbouring home which worked out just fine. The home has views you can only dream of and the decor is very modern and tasteful. The ensuite bathroom was a nice touch whilst the second bathroom is literally outside the twin bedroom. The garden gave us complete privacy as the home and gardens are located on the opposite side of the pool which was a real benefit as we could swim each day (we only ever saw other residents use the pool of a late afternoon or on the sunday of our arrival) and then relax in our garden it was like having our own private villa. Laglio as i think the other reviewes mentioned when we were searching for a home, is a very quiet spot with a handful of restaurants, wine bar, mini market and butchers and gave us an insight of italian life from yesteryear. All of which we could walk to very easily.I think this makes the place gain an extra magical and mystical feel as it really is like stepping back in time as you walk around the little streets alongside the lake, we really did love out time here. We were recommended to hire a car and glad we took the advice in order that we could access the supermarket, ferry and larger shops and village which are all found 10 minutes or less from the home. We enjoyed afternoon tea at the 5 star Villa D este close by arranged as a treat for my birthday, right on the lakeside, expensive but worth it! The property does have a private garage although we parked the car all week below the steps to the home each day. A special thanks to Julie who met us on arrival and could not do enough to ensure we were settled in. We have already recommended this home to our friends as we think Laglio is a great location.

Fanstastic home, location, great host!

  • 5 of 5

After extensive research we chose this home and could not have been more delighted with our choice. The home was just as photographed and the views did not disappoint. The interior was neatly appointed and the gardens were lovely to sit out in and soak up the sun. Most of the time we had the pool to ourselves (it was only busy on the sunday of our arrival for a few hours) so that was a real benefit to our group. There are a few stairs to reach the home and we certainly felt fitter at the end of our stay than at the beginning but in truth it took us 2 minutes to walk and the view as Julie, the host, reminded us is only as good as this from an elevated position. Julie met us on arrival and could not have been more helpful giving us titbits of information of where to shop, eat and live like a local and where and when to take the local ferry. Laglio is very quiet and tranquil so may not be to everyones taste, however we loved the peacefulness and walking down to one of the neighboring restaurants or café bars and meandering around the streets, the holiday really recharged our batteries. Argegno and Cernobbio, both a 10 minute drive, were also nice to visit if we ever fancied more action but we content to stay local and soak up the unique atmosphere of Laglio. The holiday really worked for us and we would love to return sometime soon!

Fantastic views and great relaxation

  • 4 of 5

We - a group of 4 adults - loved the location and the area and had a great week in the villa.

All the good stuff:

- The views

- The comfortable seats on the balcony to relax and stare at the view

- The view

- Very spacious villa and in a quiet location

- The view

- One or two nice nearby restaurants ( nice meal at La Locanda a few minutes walk away)

- Have I mentioned the views yet?

Our thanks to Brian, Julie and the team who were very helpful both when making the arrangements and during the week.

The only minor negatives/notes - but these certainly wouldn't stop us booking again:

- the steps up to the villa are very uneven. Those unsure on their feet need to be aware and small kids will need hand holding which isn't easy when you are carrying bags up and down.

- Parking near the villa is a little hit and miss. We were there in peak season so probably saw the worst of it. There is your own underground (and so shaded) parking space but that's not next to the villa but a few minutes walk away.

- Needs a sun umbrella. You are shaded on the balcony but nothing for when using the sun beds or by the pool.

- the freezer isn't one. We wasted ice cream in week one.

As I said, small bits that certainly didn't ruin an otherwise great week.

Overall - loved it and will certainly be considering a return visit.

P.S. If you are reading this and have not been to Lake Como yet, you'll love it. Our 2nd visit in 3 years and visit 4 already being planned.

Our dream holiday!

  • 5 of 5

Just had to write to thank you for a wonderful stay on Lake Como. This home was just the ticket and made for a relaxing vacation. Light, spacious and views we never got tired of waking up or drinking wine under the stars on the terrace at night. The gardens were lovely to soak up the sun of a day time, definitely the best apartment in our view as not overlooked and away from the pool which we prefer but was only 30 seconds walk when we needed to cool off. Laglio is completely unspoiled by tourism, i can see why George Clooney chose this location to live. We loved the cantiner restaurant at the bottom of the steps from the home for dining of an evening and the park in near by Carate to access the lake and sunbathing with the locals!

Special thanks to Barrie and Julie for your all your help during our stay. We will definitely recommend your services to our friends.

Great holiday!

  • 5 of 5

Julie, Barrie and Robert, were brilliant in organising our dream holiday. Everything was so well organised, starting from the booking process ending by meeting Julie and Robert in person. It was great to meet you all, thank you once again!

I would highly recommend this apartment to anyone willing to have a relaxing holiday and admire Como views. They are truly stunning and it is great place to be.

We've been to Il Gato Nero restaurant, which I can also highly recommend. I think it was George Clooney's favourite place? :)

We all loved Como and can't wait to go back. It was sad to leave. We were lucky with the weather both days.

No doubt will be in touch again when we decide to come to Como :)
