About Ray Keenan

My wife and I fell in love with Lake Como when we visited our friends who lived there.

Ray Keenan purchased this apartment in 2007

Why Ray Keenan chose Blevio

We wanted an apartment with great views of the lake that was also very close to the buzzing city of Como as there is always something going on there all year round.

What makes this apartment unique

Our apartment is only 6 min away from Como by public bus. The 180° panoramic views of the lake are truly beautiful. It is even possible in Summer to see the snow on the mountain tops in the distance while you relax and sip vino on the balcony.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I was extremely impressed with the apartment immediately upon arrival. It was spotlessly clean and extremely well furnished. I didnt expect a holiday apartment to feel so like home straight away. The kitchen and living area were bright open and modern, both leading off to beautiful balconies with a breathtaking view of Lake Como and beyond. The perfect place to sit back and enjoy breakfast in the morning or relax with a drink in the evenings to watch the sun set. I was also very pleased with the paved garden around the back. It was perfect to take lay back on one of the sunchairs and soak up the sun whilst reading. Very private and peaceful. The bedrooms were lovely with gorgeous views out to the lake and large sliding wardrobes in one. The location of the apartment suited us very well as it was only a short walk to the bus stop which took us into the beautiful Como on frequent intervals throughout the day. This was ideal for us as we didnt need to rent a car. I would highly recommend this location for anyone who wants a relaxing, peaceful holiday with spectacular views and a great atmosphere. Would definitely visit again

Impressed all round

  • 5 of 5

Family of 4. Plenty of space. Apartment was very clean and well equipped. Adults thoroughly enjoyed the holiday but unfortunately the same cannot be said for the teens aged 16 and 17. I would not recommend Como for families with teens, more suited to adults and couples. Located less than 10 minutes away from como. The view from the apartment is gorgeous. I plan to return someday without the kids.

Further Details:

Blevio is a quaint village on the eastern side of Lake Como. It is less than 10 mins from the town of Como and an ideal location for those who want to experience the peace and quiet of a lake side property but have all the shops, restaurants, bars, and convenience of a lively town nearby.

Blevio village has all the amenities you will need: supermarket, chemist, bread shop, bar, post office. The village lies on the main lakeside road and therefore is on the main bus route up and down the lake. It also has a ferry port stop for passenger at nearby Torno, ferries (both slow ferry and hydrofoil) and these are a great way of seeing the lake which is at its best when viewed from the water.
