Zuvorkommende, hilfsbereite und nette Gastgeberin. Sie gab wertvolle Tipps zu Restaurants und Ausflügen. Obwohl die FeWo an einer schmalen, aber viel befahrenden Straße liegt, stört der Verkehrslärm nur auf der Terrasse. Die ist allerdings wunderschön mit vielen Pflanzen und einem herrlichen Blick auf den See. Die Wohnung ist für große Menschen etwas niedrig, man stößt sich schon einmal den Kopf. Sie ist jedoch geschmackvoll eingerichtet und bietet jeden Komfort. Die Dachfenster gehen auch zum See hinaus. Wir haben uns hier sehr wohlgefühlt.

For the last stop of our month-long holiday in Germany, Switzerland and Italy, we (I was travelling with my wife and teenage son) spent three nights in mid-July at the Beautiful House in Como. It is a century-old, four-storey building just a little bit up the mountain on Via Torno on the eastern side of the city. From the Como Lago train station, you can walk up there in about 15-20 minutes (though the road was rather narrow, the drivers that we ran into were all very polite), or you can take the bus and get off at the first stop. The owner, Vittoria, is a nice and charming lady who works in Milan but lives in Como, commuting every day. She picked us up at the main station, San Giovanni, on a Friday afternoon and showed us around our beautiful penthouse. The entrance was at the second floor, and we had to walk up with our suitcases because there was no elevator. The apartment was actually quite big, more than enough for three persons. It was clean and nicely decorated, and we were required to take off our shoes outside the studio (not a problem at all given the spacious landing at the top of the staircase) because Vittoria wanted to preserve the hundred-year old floor tiles in the kitchen. Its only shortcoming was that there were only three small windows, but they offered a great view of the city and the lake. Luckily, the air conditioning worked well in the simmering Italian summer. The long and narrow studio flat can be divided into four sections. First, there was a big kitchen with all the facilities and utensils needed, including oil, salt and a range of other condiments. Vittoria was also kind enough to supply us with some bread, a basket of fruits, milk and a glass of white wine. Most important to my wife, the non-stick frying pan was quite new and well maintained with only a few scratches (most other pans that we had come across during our holidays tended to be full of scratches), and she put it to good use over the next few days. Beyond the kitchen was a sizeable sitting room with a big sofa, a couple of armchairs, a desk, plus a single bed for my son. There was also a desktop computer, apparently used mainly for surfing the Internet and games, but we didn’t use it as I had my iPad and my son his own laptop. Next to the sitting room, a wall and a bookcase (filled with Italian, German and English fiction, magazines and children’s books) helped create a bedroom where there was a double bed for me and my wife. At the end of the place was a roomy bathroom with a bathtub. We could also use the balcony on the third floor (where Vittoria lived, right below us), but we were too busy sight-seeing and didn’t really have time for it. On our last night, Vittoria invited us to her daughter’s birthday drinks on the balcony, and we had a great time talking to her, her friends and neighbours. Unfortunately, something tragic happened to her daughter’s dear friend that day, and the young girl only spent a short time with us. All in all, it was not just a great apartment. The important point was that it had a great owner who was pleasant and beautiful.

Thank you Vittoria so much. Your place is wonderful and full of character. The most wonderful location and place we have ever been. Place was clean and immaculate condition. We liked it so much that we are planning to book it again very very soon. Many our friends have liked the place sand are already interested. The host ( Vittoria) was amazing. She kept contact with us to make sure we get the right train from Milan Malpensa Airport and where to change with time schedule and details. Vittoria does care about her guests. She gone extra mile and brought the flowers for my girlfriend on arrival, Bottle of Prosceco with beer was ready in the fridge as it was bits and pieces like cheese etc. Vittoria picked us up from train station which is in walking distance from her place. Fantastic Balcony with fantastic Lake views. It was better then we imagined it will be and much more beautiful then we thought. Pictures of website does not make the justice as the place is AMAZING...FANTASTIC xx Thank you again Vittoria and we are looking forward to book with you your accommodation again Thanks you from the deep of out hearts ( Jimmy and Sharon)

This apartment it's really well located and it fits exactly the description given in this page. Vittoria has been an unbeatable hostess and she has treated my daughter and I like we were family. Complete trust. If it's possible, we would like to come back in the summer.

This perfectly located one bedroom apartment is finished to the highest quality and is light spacious and homely and within easy walking distance of Como marina. There is a terrace which looks on to the lake, perfect for sunbathing or a glass of wine or dinner in the evening. Vittora the owner is a breath of fresh air and nothing is too much trouble for her. We were welcomed with wine and fresh baked chocolate cake. She went out of her way to help with transport arrangements, making restaurant bookings and offering suggestions for things to do during the day. We would recommend this apartment to anyone.

Beautiful accommodation in a stunning location. Vittoria goes over and above to make you feel welcome. We had everything we could need on arrival, including a cot and high chair for our little boy. Vittoria made a us a delicious pasta dish and very tasty apple cake, which was eaten very quickly. Vittoria also helped us with travel arrangements to and from the airport as well as recommending some beautiful places to visit during our stay. The property was beautifully laid out and the views from the windows and terrace take your breath away. We highly recommended this property, it is a 5 minute walk to a fantastic range of restaurants and bars right on the lake side. We will definitely be returning again to see Vittoria and family including Yuma. Everything about our holiday was very special.
