Set in the heart of Como's beautiful old town, this duplex is a traditional northern-Italian style apartment, located at the top of an historic building. Enter the building via a picturesque passage off Piazza Giuseppe Mazzini, and enjoy a truly relaxing holiday, with Lake Como just a 5-minute walk away.
Located at the top of the building, the apartment is very quiet, and spread across two floors, there’s plenty of space for everyone. The first floor comprises an open-plan dining room with seating for 6 people, a kitchen, including Nepresso machine and capsules, and an elegant living area with a comfortable sofa bed and an Apple TV. Directly off the kitchen is a small washroom, continuing through to a generous-sized first bathroom, with a shower, toilet, washer/dryer and bidet.
Double doors off the living room lead onto a long, narrow balcony and there is a quiet, wall-mounted split air-conditioning unit that adequately keeps the downstairs area cool, even on the hottest of summer days.
Upstairs there are two bedrooms and another large bathroom. The rooms are lovely and light thanks to skylights, while black-out blinds ensure a great night’s sleep for everyone. The main bedroom has a queen-size bed and another quiet air-conditioning unit, the smaller with two single beds and a Dyson cooling unit for hot nights.
For the cooler months, there are radiators with gas central heating in each room, including the bathrooms. The apartment is well equipped for a young family, with toys, books and DVDs that will entertain children and adults alike, as well as free WiFi.
Amazing as the apartment may be, you’ll want to make the most of its spectacular surrounds. Boats are also available for hire for the day and for longer periods so that you can enjoy Lake Como at your own pace.
End cleaning, linen and towels are all included in the rental price.
There is public parking nearby, smoking is allowed outside only and pets are not welcome. The property is child-friendly and has a lift.
