Beautifully Appointed Executive Apartment with Majestic Lake And Mountain Views



Updated: 15-Sep-2016
Apartment in Laglio, Lake Como, Lombardy, Italy - Peaceful Village Location Just One Minute Walk To The Lake Featuring A Lift And Private Parking

The apartment is idyllically situated in the quiet village of Carate Urio and perfectly positioned to enjoy all aspects of Lake Como. Only 1 minute walk to the Lake & the nearest restaurant offering authentic Italian fare. We will also happily recommend our favourite restaurants nearby as well as other hidden gems around the village and beyond. Alternatively rustle up a feast at home,relax on the comfortable leather sofas as you take in that view or just sip on a chilled glass of Pinot Grigio whilst soaking up the sheer beauty of the Lake from the balcony. Relax and take in the view! The apartment boasts modern, contemporary living with the emphasis on relaxation and comfort. Car hire is not required however the accommodation includes secure gated private parking (a rarity here in Carate as it is often otherwise difficult to park in Carate in the summer without private parking) as well as a lift (avoiding tiresome steps carrying luggage on arrival, very common elsewhere in the area!)

Magical views!

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here as part of a two centre stay in Laglio last summer and had a wonderful time. The views are simply breathtaking and the home is both spacious and luxurioushly finished, a truly executive home. Laglio is a very friendly neighbourhood, unspoilt by tourism with a nice selection of restaurants, a few shops and access to the lake and only a few minutes drive to the beach. I would definitely chose this home again as only a 10 minute drive to Argegno the ferry and a buzzing atmosphere, so we really had the best of both worlds. Thank you to italian apartments for their excellent customer service, helping to co ordinate the reservation and their prompt responses throughout our stay.

Lakeside living!

  • 4 of 5

We stayed here last summer and had a wonderful time. The home is exactly as described in the advert. Laglio is a picture postcard village with a few bars and restaurants and the perfect gew away from it all base to explore.

You can take a dip in the lake just as the locals do from the jetty opposite the apartment, or try out many of the Lidos up and down the Lake. A grassy sunbathing area is available 2 minute drive in the village of Carate Urio.


Malpensa airport 40 minutes drive from the apartment. Linate 1 hour.

We are happy to advise which airlines fly to the local airports from the UK.

Car rental is considered essential to get the most out of your stay in the Lakes, however buses access all parts of the lake from the village which is only a couple of minutes walk from the apartment as well as ferry stop 10 to 15 minutes walk.


A short drive to the quintessential Italian town of Como. Guide books tell you it is famous for Italian silk, however, we prefer its lake front views, pretty piazzas, 600 old churches, Gelato shops (nocciala is our favourite!), alfresco dining and shopping for sumptuous Italian delicacies! 15 minutes to the Swiss border for designer outlets in Fox town. 40 minutes to Milan. 40 minutes to the lakeside town of Menaggio from where you can take a ferry to Bellagio.

Further Details:

Out and about the lake, choose from Villa Carlotta in Tremezzo (20 minutes by car). Beautiful gardens in many styles with lake views to die for!

Villa Serbollini in Bellagio with unrivalled panoramic views is a fantastic day out. Bellagio itself is a favourite for holiday makers with it's cobbled streets and unbeatable views. Do not miss Villa Babinello in Lenno. If you wanted to propose to somebody I have yet to see a more romantic spot! Walk to the villa or take the private boat from Lenno lido (20 minutes by car from the apartment). The villa and it's majestic gardens overlook the rich blue waters of the lake. Simply divine. No wonder James Bond (Casino Royale) was shot at this Villa! (May 2006) You can also relax on the golden sand beach at lido di lenno or take a dip in the lake.

Drive down to Cernobbio (15 minutes south of the apartment)

for an idyllic lakeside walk, a favourite past time of ours for a Sunday stroll. Menaggio, with it's palm lined walkways is another pretty lake village worth exploring. Many boat activities from windsurfing to sailing are available on the lake as well as other water sports.

Mountain bikes are also available for hire if you wish to venture into the vast mountains that surround the lake.

There are plenty of restaurants and places to visit we are happy to recommend. Whatever your requirements just ask and we will be happy to share our knowledge and local information with you so you can enjoy your holiday and live like a local from the minute you begin your holiday.
