For those who would like some personal attention from somebody who was born on the Lake but has all the skill sets to both educate and illuminate your stay. Danilo will both accompany you and introduce you to those unseen and little known places. Such a well known character can open doors and reveal the inner workings of the Lake’s businesses and styles of relaxation. For your consideration is a day in St Moritz, leave “Prima Isola” at 7.30, be on the slopes for 9.30am, ski the all day and get back around 7.00pm. The following day, you could go shopping together and also visit the very special places, the Lake doesn’t often advertise well, such as the olive oil groves, the smoked trout business etc. In the afternoon you can start to cook a dinner together usng local ingredients to local recipes (Price Guide: €150 - €200).

Many thanks for a splendid four day break at Prima Isola (Aug 11-15). If anything, the advertisement and post booking information undersells the fabulous nature of the apartment’s location, its spaciousness and the outstanding beauty of the views from the balconies. The team in the office and Danilo in particular were very helpful in getting us oriented quickly, which on a short break was really important.
Perhaps because the office is in Menaggio, the pre-arrival information probably undersells the attractions of Ossuccio /Sala Comacina. On arrival, Danilo pointed us to the Lido di Ossuccio, ( lake side bar, sun-tan lawns and lake swimming opportunities by the bell tower in Ossuccio, including a cordoned ‘safe swim’ area which may be of interest particularly to families with younger children). All this was just a 5 minute walk from the apartment and a really pleasant place to spend a lazy day. It seemed to us to make the Menaggio Lido (8kms away), which is prominently featured in the pre-arrival information, less relevant to people staying in Ossuccio. Similarly we found the local boat hire to be excellent and a little cheaper than the Menaggio based company advertised, even once the 10% reduction is factored in.
Ossuccio also offers one of the best dining experiences we had all holiday (our stop in Como was just part of a three week holiday spent mostly in Tuscany and Emilia Romagna so the competition was pretty steep). I doubt if there are many restaurants on the lake which offer as fine a dining experience in as pleasant a spot as Locanda la Tirlindana at Sala Comacina (again 5 mins from the apartment). We also had dinner on the island; the setting is similarly fabulous and the welcome is good fun but it will seem very pricey, particularly to families. The food is generous and copious but a world away from the quality at the Tirlindana and about twice the price!
Many thanks again to the team and Danilo in particular for making our introduction to Lake Como so memorable. We hope to be back and to stay longer next time.
Just wanted to say thank you very much Danilo for having myself and my family. We could not have enjoyed our stay more! Danilo was extremely helpful with any questions we had regarding the house and providing information regarding Lake Como itself.
The house we comfortable, clean and the view was spectacular... We had breakfast and dinner on the patio nearly everyday. The town Sala Comacina is small and quiet however you are close to some bigger towns which have supermarkets. We highly recommend this place.
Our favourite town/ village was Verenna i think it was the pettiest on Lake Como, we got the recommendation for going there from Danilo. We ate home most nights however went for an amazing dinner one night in Cernobbio by the lake (unfortunately can;t remember the name) And of course Villa Carlotta is a must.
Anyway I hope this was helpfull and will hopefully be back soon.
Location is wonderful, best thing about the villa is the great view of the lake.
Double room on the top floor can do with bedside tables - to keep phone, wallet etc.
Danilo (owner) was very friendly and helpful, he recommended a restaurant in lenno (can't remember the name), next to a sports bar, which was REALLY good.
A short email to give you our feed back after our Holiday at Como lake. We had a great time there The lake is really wonderful. The weather was quite pleasant. The sun was very present and warm. The view from the house is amazing.
Thanks for asking for our feedback. We had very nice time around lake Como despite the fairly typical weather – it rained most of the time and was fairly cold. Your team was very helpful to find the place and get in touch with the owner.
We again, had a fantastic time on the Lake, apart from the rain on Sunday!!
The accommodation was great and I do apologise to Danilo and his family as my friends were very loud, and from the photos I didn't realise that his living quarters would be so accessible from inside the guest accommodation.
When we stayed in Terrazza Elegante last year the owner accommodation above seemed to be only accessed via outside steps so we were quite soundproofed in the living 'cavern'.
We found the village lovely and used both the fish restaurant and the restaurant above the mini market which was lovely.
I hope this feedback is useful and thank you for hospitality.
Our holiday was a great success! I could have stayed in Italy forever!
Instructions for the apartment were good, so we found the place very well. Property: we knew what to expect (we have been in Italy before), but the dishes and kitchen cabinets could have been a little cleaner. However, we washed the dishes ourselves before use :) We liked the place, it was a good size, entertained and the scenery was breathtaking!
We went to several different places to eat. Unfortunately I don´t remember the names of places, but the two were close to the property, and two restaurants in Menaggio. The food was excellent in all places.
We went to Villa Carlotta and Villa Balbienello garden. They were amazing! We also did the day trips to Lugano, Milan and Como. We swam a lot and enjoyed the warm weather and sunshine!
The owner was very friendly and helpful. Many thanks to Danilo! Many thanks your office staff too - you are friendly, and you answer the questions quickly. All was handled with excellent - Thank you!
We recommend the place for sure everyone here in Finland and we will definitely come back to the Como Lake again!
The location of the villa was fantastic, close to the lake and we had spectacular views from the villa.
The villa was extremely spacious and very well equipped for a self catering holiday.
The price was also very reasonable.
The owner, Mr Danilo Gerletti spoke perfect english and was always available to help us with restaurant bookings and recommendations.
The booking process was simple, effective and quick.
You were always very quick to respond to my queries and the personalised website was very good and informative.
May 2010 We are ensconced in Primo de Lago and it's a great apartment. Furnished throughout with everything we need. We are extremely comfortable. Your company and staff get top marks ~ we're loving the lakes and surrounding area. Ciao for now. Anne, UK
April 2010 We left with the memory of a beautiful holiday. After years of renting with different companies, my experience with lakecomohomes.com was in one word 'splendid'. First of all you (Lydia) were very helpful finding a holiday house to our needs and all mails were answered within minutes, very relieving! The house we had booked was apparently not available and on the last day you offered us a replacement, which was beautiful, and definitely an upgrade.The information you sent me, after booking on itinerary, local transport, etc. was very complete and unseen before. The house was agreeable and decorated to a high standard - there were no hidden costs, as is often the case, and we all left Ossuccio smiling and with the memory of a beautiful holiday. Dirk, Belgium
