Everything was a steep walk away, we came just out of season so pool wasnt ready and some restaurants etc nt all open yet. Local shops are limited, supermarket in como better. Apartment has everything you need although sorting the bins are a pain as there are so many local recycling requirements.
Thank you for your review Joanne. To enjoy the view as good as this the home is elevated so better to travel with a car unless fit given the walk back up the hill from the village. We use Sigma Supermarket which is only a 5 minute drive from the home for all our shopping as a good size with all amenities as well as the convenience stores in Mezzegra and the bakery, cafe bar and Magnolia bar on the lake front. Recycling is part and parcel of like on the lake. Como and it's lake is an area of outstanding natural beauty and recycling helps keep it this way. There is a special recycling area in Lenno 5 minutes from the home for guests as we showed you on arrival to help dispose of your waste during your stay or on departure which is makes life much easier for our guests.
Oh my, what a view!!
Unbeatable view. Perfect location, I suggest unless you're a hiker, you'll need a car. Lenno ferry port 5 minutes, supermarket 7 minutes and so much more. Lenno just lovely, great market on Tuesday for clothes bags shoes and a real Italian atmosphere on the Lake's edge. Ferry boat to Bellagio, Como and Vareena so simple. We rented a self drive boat, in Lenno for 6, for 4 hours, just 150 Euros.....best day ever. Outstanding views and swimming in Lake Como. Villa nice, well equipped. The double room downstairs was not my favourite with a steep narrow spiral staircase and no natural light but it was cool and decorated attractively. Shared pool a real bonus and so quiet. Would have loved to give 5 stars but for a few points that could easily be resolved. The beds were not the most comfortable, maybe OK if you like your bed very firm. The pillows and duvets, stored in the wardrobes, had no covers which wasn't pleasant and not hygienic. The rubbish situation was a real downer for me. Como is immaculate and stunningly beautiful and for this there are strict rubbish regulations. That's good. You had to recycle and put the rubbish out on set nights, no problem. However on check out we had to take all remaining rubbish, including smelly green food bags...….everything......2 bin liners full. Our cars were already bursting with luggage and people and we could not believe that the £125 cleaning fee did not cover this. Checking out is a stressful day, packing and cleaning and I found being told we needed to remove all rubbish to get our 350 Euro deposit back a sad way to end a lovely holiday. 4 cleaners arrived to blitz the villa surely they could take the rubbish, especially as no bin bags, or which there were 3 different coloured bags, were available at the villa. This could easily be resolved. Julie and Barrie text' us with ideas of what to do to make the most of the holiday which was invaluable meaning we saw lots and always on the best days. What would really help is a little map pointing out to you all the important locations, like supermarkets, ferry port, skips for rubbish, that way we'd know exactly were to take the rubbish and where to get the ferry, boat hire etc. Julie also at the end of the phone for any advice/issues. Will you have a lovely holiday? Yes. Will the view blow you away? Yes. Would I return....not sure you'll beat the view but the rubbish was no way to end a lovely holiday.
Thank you Julie for your comments. We are glad you enjoyed your stay and loved the view!
We appreciate your kind comments regarding our service as we do try and provide a personal service for all guests with local knowledge to help you get the very most your stay. Regarding the points raised regarding the beds, until now we have only received positive comments. Of course we understand some guests prefer a firmer mattress and some a softer one and what deemed firm for one guest is perfect for another so we do monitor comments to ensure the home is always comfortable. Regarding the removal of waste on departure the communication is perfectly clear. As you rightly state “Como is immaculate and stunningly beautiful and for this there are strict rubbish regulations.“ The commune wish to keep it this way as the opposite is waste everywhere which would spoil the natural beauty and environment as I am sure you would agree. Hence the rule applies for all homes here in the area and not just ours. We advise our guests that waste should be removed and provide bags as you mention and the recycle chart to take the waste to the entrance of the residence on the allocated days so that you are not left with any waste to remove on departure. As you mention nobody wants to remove smelly bin bags on departure hence the instructions to leave the waste in front of the residence as instructed on arrival.
I understand this may have been stressful for you however the cleaning team called us before we met you to advise there were a huge amount of garbage that had not been removed on departure and as confirmed you previously this is a condition of returning the security bond. Clearly our intention is for the waste to be removed and the bond returns to you.
To this end we accompanied you to the recycling area 5 minutes from the home on departure and duly returned your bond.
To confirm the cleaning cost charged to you and other guest is 125 euro and not £125 as you have incorrectly stated. It is not to remove waste which is clearly communicated to all guests with your reservation. This payment is to professionally clean the home, provide towels and linen.We do not ask the bin men to change the beds. You are welcome here anytime Julie but if you decide to come back as you have pondered, you will need to recycle or remove waste here or at any home in the area as requested by the local council to preserve the natural beauty of the lake.
Great views from a comfortable apartmentt.
A steepish climb but worth it for the great views of Lake Como. Excellent and well-maintained pool. Difficult curving staircase to the bottom bedroom. Plenty of good local restaurants a 15 minute walk away.
Beautiful view. Lovely apartment.
A lovely week on Lake Como. A hell of a climb to the apartment - not for the feint hearted!
this apartment was clean and tidy. and the view was spectacular!!
the best apartment ever!
Lovely views - tough walking
The apartment is beautifully appointed, with breathtaking views of Lake Como. All mod cons are provided (including undercroft garaging), with the exception of a log-burner that appears to be for show only! Given we had a couple of cool evenings it would have been pleasant to be able to light it.
The apartment complex is up on the hill in Mezzegra (claim to fame is that it is the village where Mussolini was executed in 1945 - the place is 400 yards away and marked with a cross!) and the walk from the main centre is a tough one on the way up. Eating in the evening and then walking back is not for the very young and old. A hire car is recommended.
Whilst we enjoyed our stay, we would be unlikely to stay again. A hotel on the Lake would appear to be the better option as you have easier access to amenities and dining.
Small gripe. The rubbish separation and collection is like a task on the Krypton Factor - with various types collected on different days. The owner/s of the Villa state that if any rubbish is left you will be charged 30 Euros. Given that they charge 125 Euros for cleaning (no small amount!), rubbish removal should really be included in that charge. When I stay at an hotel and leave rubbish in a bin, I'm not charged extra!
