We throughly enjoyed our stay here, which was made even more pleasurable by our wonderful hosts Sonia and Georgio. The property is spacious and comfortable. The view from the terrace over the lake is simply stunning. It is set away from the town of Brunate amongst woods so a car would be recommended to get around.

The first thing to highlight is the amazing views over Como which repeatedly absorbs the attention. The seated decking area has just this fantastic backdrop. The house is chic with designer bathrooms, the rooms are tastefully furnished with high-quality wall prints. To manage your expectations the caution would be that once you have arrived by car you leave it parked in the garden drive until it's time to leave. Instead, use the local funicular railway. For downward journeys, there is a halfway stop which means you walk down to it (it does mean skirting around the ticket barrier and purchasing a ticket at the bottom). You are then near to the heart of Como and its a shortish walk to the Ferry terminal. On return, you go to the top station and then walk down to the house. There is really only one way to drive to the house and that is from Como on the Via per Brunate and the Via per Como. Even then turning around the sharp 180 degree bends can be challenging to the non-local, and the roads can narrow (so the bigger your car the more challenging it becomes) (I am glad we did not fall for the Avis rouse of boot space vs luggage upgrade ploy). The final roads to the house can be a bit confusing. It transpires that Sonia the owner will often arrange to meet guests in Brunate so they can follow her to the house. If you see a feasible route from Cassano on the SP37 DON’T TAKE IT. At some points the road narrows (between thick walls) to such an extent that you have to take your wing mirrors in (the bigger the car the narrower the width). Would thoroughly recommend the house in the woods (just be aware of the roads).

The house is a little remote so you need transport. Great location and view over the lake. The amenities are good and comfortable together with helpful and friendly hosts. Not really suitable for people with mobility problems. A great experience of life in an Italian village however the road trip up and down the mountain some people may find daunting. I thought it was fun. Easy to get to Como on the Funicular particularly is our visit was not at peak season.

We stayed for two weeks and were delighted with the place and the treatment we received from the owners. The location is wonderful and the apartment (on two floors) roomy and comfortable. We highly recommend it as long as you understand that it is in the woods, thus the beautiful view of the lake and mountains. Sonia and her husband were exceptionally kind and helpful. A very special place!

Wonderful 5 days holiday in perfect surroundings. The house was beautiful and well equipped , warm and very peaceful. We arrived in the dark and Sonia met us in her car or we would have struggled to find it. The house was warm when we arrived with the stove on and some provisions to keep us going until we got to the shop. We couldn't,t have asked for more. We walked to the fermicular which meant we could explore Como without driving. We also visited Milan on the train and the lighthouse at the top of the hill. Beautiful scenery and perfect hosts - we couldn't,t fault anything. Thank you

Maison agréable mais un peu isolé de Brunate, la vue sur le lac de Come à l'étage est fort appréciable, le petit déjeuner était un peu trop succinct (une brick de lait, un paquet de brioche tranché, un jus de fruit pour 3 matins...). La propriétaire nous a bien accueillie mais nous ne l'avons pas revu durant le séjour alors qu'elle demeure au même endroit, dommage... Le temps n'était pas beau nous n'avons pas pu profiter de tous les avantages de cette demeure.

We had a wonderful and memorable week at Baita Sorriso. The location is very quiet. The house is well decorated and comfortable. The kitchen is well equipped. The view from the back of the house is terrific. We even saw a firework display in the town across the lake. When the Funicular Railway is working, it is easy to get from this property in Brunate into Como. Sonia was very helpful with advice and loaning us things. This property is very much recomended
