Barrie, Just wanted to say a big thank you from all of us who stayed at the Laglio apartment from Friday to Tuesday. The apartment is very nicely furnished and exceeded our expectations. Needless to say, the views are just exceptional.

Thanks once again. Mark Buttigieg, April 2010

Treasured memories of Lake Como.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here as part of a 3 centre holiday and fell in love with the home and laglio. We are used to staying in high quality homes throughout the world for special celebrations and this one is up there with the very best of them. Kitted out to a high standard, every home comfort has been catered for here. The walk to the home whilst steep only took 2 minutes from the parking although anyone who is unfit or elderly may take a little longer to reach the apartment. When you do the view is majestic and worth every step! We enjoyed afternoons lazing in the private garden or taking a dip in the pool. Laglio is the picture perfect lakeside village with a couple of nice restaurants, wine bar and a couple of shops so we really felt like a local staying here away with the tourist masses. The ferry in Argegno is a 10 minute drive so we think a car is essential here. A large supermarket is also located 10 minutes drive as a more touristy villages to explore. But we liked nothing more than returning to the home, enjoying the sun go down with a glass of wine. Bliss! A special mention to Julie for all her help on arrival. I would recommend this home to any one looking for a relaxing and quiet lake experience and would return to this home in a heartbeat.

Wonderful relaxing break

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here in Laglio last month and enjoyed ourselves immensely. The home was immaculate with views to die for. The location is relaxing, and serene just as we hoped and Laglio picture postcard pretty away from the tourist masses. A big thank you to Julie, who met us on arrival, could not have been any more charming or helpful, full of local knowledge which helped make us feel right at home straight away and ensured we found our feet knowing where to visit, to dine and the best local tips. Overall a holiday to treasure. I would definitely book with this company in the future and can recommend their services 100%

Lakeside delight!

  • 5 of 5

Just back from a 2 centre stay on the lake. This home really was hard to top with spellbinding lake views from the balcony and living room and just as the photos suggested has been furnished to exacting standards throughout. We are perennial holiday home dwellers and this one was up there with the very best. We loved walking the lanes and streets of Laglio meandering around the lakeside hills and so forth. The village is very tranquil and with just a couple of local bars and restaurants with a couple of mini markets so a car is definitely recommended to venture further afield where lots more restaurants can be found however we loved the slow pace of life here, the private garden to relax in and watch the boats bob about on the water in front of the home. Parking was easy as the home has its own garage but we tended to park beneath the apartment and take the steps to the property so never needed to use it. Thank you to Julie for all your help and co ordination throughout the stay. We will definitely return and have recommnended this home to friends for next summer.

Luxury apartment, 5 star service!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay here in Laglio. I have to say the home was every bit as good as photographed which is always a relief when you take a leap of faith and book a foreign holiday home. The property has been furnished to a high standard, the view is spectacular and the village was very tranquil with just a couple of superb restaurants and bars to walk to, so nice and quiet just as we like it. The steps are many as the advert mentions but the view make it worthwhile and only takes a couple of minutes to reach the home from the car parking space below. We spent many a lazy day in our garden or taking a dip in the pool. A special mention for the cheery Welsh lady Julie who gave us such a warm welcome on arrival. Nothing was too much trouble for her and she gave us valuable tips and recommendations for the best places to eat, shop and visit..in that order!! We didnt bump into Mr Clooney, my wife is sorry to say, who lives close by but there is always next time!

Lovely apartment and view. Beare agent and extras

  • 3 of 5

Lovely apartment, lovely view - but beware the agent, the extras and the steps

We stayed in this apartment last week

Our Easyjet flight on Sunday was delayed (surprise.) And we called the agent rep to be told we would be charged for a late arrival.

On Monday morning we reported to the rep that the freezer door would not fully shut. We propped it shut as best we could with a dining chair. Daily chases led to the response "nothing happens quickly in Italy".

Eventually on Friday we used a table knife as a screwdriver and released the outer door so the blockage could be removed. It could have been a quick fix for the agent's handyman but nobody checked.

End of stay cleaning charge us significant.

At the end of the stay we had a food stain on a cushion if the sofa. The rep withheld alarmed amount for dry cleaning of two cushion covers....

Finally, please be aware that there are 63 cobbled steps fro the parking level to the fate if the property, followed by 21 more more to the apartment level. You, your luggage and your shopping will need to go up (and down) these. Not for the unfit!

Steps are a necessary evil to have such an excellent view, but we would recommend to the owners that they should take a close look at the agent they use.

Owner's Response: I think some balance is required to be applied to this review. Please note check in at the home is 2 to 6pm. A late check in charge applies as confirmed and clearly stated on the booking contract for arrivals after 9pm. The guest did not inform us of any delay, rather we contacted the guest. Indeed we arranged the fridge to stocked up for there late arrival of a Sunday evening with food and wine. Steps are mentioned on the advert "Steps to the home may deem the property unsuitable for elderly or infirm guests" To benefit from the spectacular view mentioned the home has to be elevated. So providing guests are reasonably fit there is no issue. The home is immaculately presented and cleaned between each stay with fresh linen, towels and bedding supplied on arrival. The charge is advertised and also communicated on the contract. It was unfortunate that the refridgeration company could not call out promptly for which we apologised to the guests and kept them updated however i must stress the fridge and freezer were in full working order for the length of these guests stay and it was only the outer cosmetic door that needed attention. As a goodwill gesture we agreed to an afternoon check out on departure as well as a couple of bottles of complimentary italian wine. I am sorry i have to disagree with the comments made regarding damage caused to the sofa. The guest had caused stains to the sofa and covered up the stains with cushions and failed to own up to this when we had asked them if there was any damage to report when we met the guests at check out to return the security deposit. The damage bond is 350 euro. We returned 290 euros immediately to this guest hence only charged 60 euro for the sofa to be recleaned in order that the home would be perfect for the next guests. This is the first time in nine years we have had to make a deduction from the security bond. As an agency it is sometimes a difficult call between keeping the guests happy or making a deduction in the very rare instance of any damage caused by a guest. It is never a nice thing to do and perhaps the bone of contention for these guests and the reason behind submitting this review which as you can see from the other guests comments is clearly out of sync where guests have praised us for going the extra mile.

Everything we had hoped it would be

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was everything we had hoped it would be...and more. With the hot weather, the air-con and shutters were a blessing and the pool was great for cooling off as well! It was lovely to have our own private garden and we made use of the BBQ too. Never tired of the amazing views over the lake either.

We plan to return to the Lakes and would be more than happy to stay in the same apartment again!
