About the neighbourhood
Faggeto Lario is a quiet and peaceful village, on the waterfront below the property. There is a bar and the famed 'Vapore' Restaurant, which is hit with all of our guests. It has a ferry service to Como and to Bellagio.

It is 2km from Torno, a larger village known for its picturesque harbour. There is a great restaurant (also called 'Vapore', no relation). A wonderful place to enjoy the afternoon sun and sunsets. The are more frequent ferry services from Torno, and a free car park.

From the main road there is a regular (hourly) bus service that connects with Como and Bellagio, also into the hilly interior to the villages of Molina, Lemna and Palanza. Bus fares are about EUR 3.00, and tickets need to be purchased at local shops and cafes
Getting around
Other than ferries and buses, we recommend you rent a car. There are rental firms in Como, otherwise you can rent from the main railway terminus stations in Milan or at any of the airports (Malpensa, Linate, Bergamo). The Visitors' Guide will provide you with a lot of information on places to visit in the area. The choice is huge, there is something for everyone.
Car advised
How to get there
Airport: Malpensa: 68.0 km
Railway: Como San Giovanni: 11.0 km
Proceed on road from Como to Bellagio. Pass through villages of Blevio, and Torno, and the road leading to Molina. Be aware that some sections near Blevio are quite narrow so do take care.

At the 9.4km sign you will see a car park with an entrance to an apartment complex. It is directly opposite the Post Office (sign with 'PT').
