We welcome you in an historic house overlooking the lake, right in front of Comacina Island. Completely renovated in 2014.

The space

We tried to imagine it as the house that we would like to find in our travels, trying to provide all those little details appreciated by those who wants to breathe even on vacation home air: useful accessories and everything for children, few frills ... affordable prices!
The house contains a small treasure: a shoemaker's workshop, handed down from generation to generation and active until a short time ago, the precious memory of a special person.

Together with the workshop we tried to preserve all the characteristic features of the house: the ancient stone staircase, a fireplace, a fresco discovered during renovation work.

We have tried to ensure sustainable solutions to reduce power consumption and to respect nature: we use energy saving lamps, taps with flow reduction, unbleached linen.
We offer information about public transport and cultural events in the area.
We promote separate waste collection.

ULIVO (olive) apartment is located on the second floor.

Slept wonderfully here and woke to stunning views. Attentive host. Clean and adequate for just bed and making your own breakfast. A great place with access to the central lake. A bit scary entering and exiting with the door right in the road. Some difficulty finding parking. No oven in Kitchen

Unfortunately we were very disappointed because of the house location on the main road without any distance to the street. This is a very important information about the property which should be written in the listing of Airbnb. Severe accident could have happened when leaving the house at the first few times. The second issue is the big mould smell in the apartment! The shower is full of mould and after I'm a specialist in the construction branch I can imagine that there are much more mould locations in the different edges and corners in the apartment which are not visible. After we entered the flat and smelled the strange stink we left the windows open whole of time but it didn't help! Every time we enter the flat we get an unpleasant feeling. Additionally we've got surprised that the facility of kitchen is less than minimal. No toaster; no dish washer; very small kettle.

Stunning views! Really good base to explore Como, Northern Italy & even Switzerland! Zaira was a great, helpful host. On hand to help but not intrusive. Advice - if you have a hire car, rent the garage, parking is extremely limited. Zaira arranged this for us and it was totally worth it. We loved our stay at the Olive apartment & will hopefully return soon.

What a beautiful view of the lake from this cozy top-floor apartment. It gets really warm in the summer though, so thank goodness for the two bedroom fans. Lake Como is gorgeous. Zaira was great in terms of communication and responding to messages. I don't understand the need to pay extra cash for towels and linens though. The shower is also very tiny. And be careful when exiting the front door directly onto the street.

We had a lovely stay at Zaira's apartment and she was always responsive to our questions. The location is fairly quiet (except occasionally for the road) but close to a bus stop which makes travel along the lake easy, and also within walking distance of two ferry stops which gives you access to the whole lake. There are a couple of restaurants nearby but we preferred one a kilometre away in Sala Comacina. The balcony view from the apartment is amazing so you don't need to go anywhere else to see the beauty of Lake Como.

We were 4 friends visiting Como for a weekend. Zaira's flat was the perfect place to stay, well equipped, with a great and romantic view over the lake from the balcony. The location was also very good, in a walkable distance to Lenno and the magnificent Villa del Balbianello. Zaira as a host was very flexible and helpful, providing us with good recommendations and travel tips. I can definitely recommend it!
