“Excellent location and brilliant hosts.Lake view all the way.”
Reviewed 21 July 2016 for a stay in July 2016

We stayed at Casa Gigi, Faggeto Lario for three nights mid July. It is on 1st Floor with the lake view from each room including the kitchen. It is newly refurbished and I think we were the second guests in the property after refurb. Property has been done up to high standards and very clean. Kitchen is well equiped and all the utensils and a moka as well, microwave, oven, dishwasher. Gigi and his wife are excellent hosts. They had stocked up some drinks, including a sparking white wine, tea and coffee. They had sticked up some snacks and jams,spreads etc. Free WiFi. The location of the property is on the road from Como to Bellagio which can be noisy for light sleepers until 11 to 12 PM in busy period but windows n doors to balcony are double glazed. We had some difficulty finding the property as the directions are not very clearly communicated by the manager, Stefanos. But locals were very helpful and Gigi came on his car to pick us up. Casa gigi is close to Hotel Vapore which is on the lake and casa gigi is up on the road.
You can find Hotel Vapore on google maps to give an idea where to get off if you are coming by bus C30 like us from Como. Way to the lake is a steep walk about 300 metres downhill. There are a couple of beaches on the lake and a ferry terminal.
There are no shops nearby but a few cafe on the lake downhill. We used internet to translate n communicate to Gigi but his wife knows a bit of English.
So overall a very good stay and we will highly recommend CASA GIGI. Thank you Gigi.

“Lovely apartment, lots of traffic”
Reviewed 17 July 2016 for a stay in June 2016

We were give a friendly welcome by Gigi the owner (limited English on his part and limited Italian on our part - but we got the basics sorted).

The apartment is located on the first floor with access via external stairs. It is long and thin with each room having access to a slim balcony overlooking the lake but also verging on overhanging the road. There is no other outdoor space.

The apartment was beautifully fitted out - brand new, clean with great facilities in the bathroom and kitchen.

The fridge contained sparkling wine, beer and milk on arrival - much appreciated.

Whilst we were there in early July, the road (SS583) was used regularly both day and night - I wouldn't say it was relaxing to sit outside enjoying the view during the day and my husband ended up using ear plugs overnight as his sleep was often disturbed.

Note, it's probably best to shop in Como before arriving at the apartment as local shops are limited in terms of selection and opening times.
