“Serenity and beauty and fun.”
Reviewed 18 September 2017 for a stay in September 2017

The resort sits right on the water front at the base of a cliff. Each little villa has wonderful views which I could happily sit and look at all day. In fact on one cold, rainy day that's exactly what we did. There is a lift from the car park down to the resort which unfortunately wasn't working during our stay but Eric, the owner, was more than obliging with carrying our heavy bags.
We did have to plod back up to the top a couple of times to buy groceries but I'm sure Eric would have done that too if we had asked.
The villas are self catering and equipped with all the basics for preparing simple meals. There is a tiny TV and some videos if you can tear yourself away from the lake. An aperitivo with a few picks at sunset usually turns into a late night supper.
There are a few restaurants within walking distance which are good if a little pricey.
The ferry stops two minutes walk away but unfortunately doesn't keep very hospitable hours if you're hoping to use it as your main transport. I really recommend having a car to get around, but be prepared for an interesting approach to the resort and an even more interesting exit as there is a steep gradient right on a corner which will really spin your wheels
We loved this place because the owners couldn't do enough for us. If it's relaxing you want then this is it. Make sure you hire a boat for a couple of hours and get out on the lake.

Thank you for your lovely review. The charming villages and narrow roads have been the same here for centuries which makes it difficult at time to navigate but so well worth it when you finally arrive. Being on the lake is heaven. Thank you for sharing it with us.
We look forward to your return.

“Superb location - some access issues”
Reviewed 23 June 2017 for a stay in June 2017

people found this review helpful

A hard one to review this ... Eric and Jiselle couldn't have been more helpful from the booking through to the stay. The apartment has a superb view of Lake Como, and easy access to the boat ferry service (not too many ferries stop at Pognana Lario but get the timing right and you're fine).

The one issue is access. You, along with other houses, are at the bottom of a cliff. the road through the village is at the top. To illustrate, from the ferry to the road are 400 stone steps on a steeply sloping upward route. To get to the villa, you drive down a very steep hairpin drive, and park about halfway down the cliff. From there there is a cliff side elevator to get you further down, but there are still about 50 steps and some sloping paths after that to get to the villa itself. Eric will volunteer to help with luggage if he is there (which he often is). Driving back up is an experience, you need to take it at some speed otherwise you can't get round the steep corners. I got the knack by the time we left.

In the villa, which is one room downstairs with small kitchen area, and a bedroom and bathroom upstairs, there is a narrow spiral staircase to get upstairs. Getting myself and our full cases up it when we arrived took a bit of effort.

The villa is perfectly comfortable, if not luxurious, but in that great location you will be spending your time sat outside rather than inside anyway.

Would be 5 stars apart from the access issue, and many thanks to Eric and Jiselle for a great holiday :-)

Thank you for your kind review. Lake Como is terraced and adds to it's charm as not much has changed in 1000 years which makes it that much more incredible. The lake is on glaciers and all terraced but solid rock and secure. All the roads along the lake are old country roads but so charming and beautiful. Once you get the hang of navigating the area, it becomes second nature. Thank you for coming and choosing to stay with us.
We look forward to your return.
Ciao from Lake Como!

“The perfect 3 day break”
Reviewed 26 April 2017 for a stay in April 2017

We visited here earlier in the month and it was a perfect 3 days. Eric was very helpful particularly helping with the fact we had a 5 month old baby. The setting is excellent and the views are dreamy. Fully recommend staying here if you're wanting a self catering trip.

“Our 30th Wedding Anniversary - what a choice !”
Reviewed 17 June 2016 for a stay in June 2016

I'll not relentlesssly repeat the views of others, as to be frank, all do the location justice. My wife chose the location as she wanted something "special" for our anniversary, and wow .... Did we enjoy ourselves, or what ?!

Must do's whilst here are of course the ferry journeys to and from Como and Bellagio, but thank goodness for Eric and his recommendations for food, which were out of this world. I'm writing this having experienced Salice Blu (Luigi Gondola) and when I finish my glass of white wine by the side of the lake, we'll be heading off to Bella Vista in the mountains.

However, you'll have all of the information provided to you by Eric when you arrive, who is one of those people that you meet in life and think "if I'm ever in / around Como again, I wouldn't hesitate to call on Eric and say "hi" as I know what the welcome would be".

Please don't brag too much about this beautiful place and setting..... As far as we're concerned, Clooney chose the wrong side of the lake, and the wrong neighbours.

Outstanding .......
