Accogliente casetta in legno, appena ristrutturata, con una stupenda vista sulla parte più spettacolare del Lago di Como. Ideale per chi vuole fuggire dai luoghi affollati, in quanto si trova in una zona isolata e con ampia possibilita di effettuare passeggiati nei boschi circostanti e nello stesso tempo, si trova comunque in posizione strategica per raggiungere i principali punti di interesse del lago.
“The little house of Patrizia not only offers an indescribable view of Lake Como, but with its loving furnishings, it makes you feel at home straight away. We were warmly welcomed on the first day by already heating the house with the oven and providing us with a small cake as a welcome gift. We can recommend everyone to switch off and relax for a few days, whether sitting on the terrace or watching the lights at the lake from the sofa in the evening ... this place has something magical. The lake, the nearest towns or Milan are very easy to reach within one hour (by train or by car). Restaurant suggestions, shops and sights are listed in a folder in the house. It wasn't a goodbye forever - we will definitely be back! :)”
Casa dei Nonni is a warm and welcoming house, the ideal place for families and couples who love the quietness and the fresh air that the mountain can offer. It's surrounded by green areas, including a wood with secular pines. Moreover there is a natural lake nearby the house: the best way to cope with the hot, summery weather, which is also suitable to ice-skate during winter time.
“If you open the door and let your gaze wander to the right from the living room and the terrace, you can see mountains and nature and the vastness. You can only see so much nature in travel reports. However, you should have a look for it. The kitchen is well equipped, as well as bathroom. The bedroom has a normal window and a roof window through which you can see the stars. Magnificent !! The whole apartment was very clean and nothing was missing. The highlight was the delicious heart-shaped cake Daniela baked us, thanks again. There is a pizzeria in the immediate vicinity, which we did not visit. The time was just too short. Lago de Lagolo can be reached on foot in a few minutes and is ideal for water lovers. In the garden there is a lounger and a deck chair and for Pastime is well taken care of. A table tennis table and rackets are available. If you want to grill, you can use the brick grill. We did it and the food was delicious. The whole family gave us a warm welcome. We also learned Fabrizio, the Know son who was a very nice conversation partner. If you like to eat honey, Stefano should buy his homemade honey. It is so delicious and I regret not having bought more glasses. The water is very good in taste and extremely fresh. We like to come back someday.”
Gaze over stunning 180-degree views of islands on Lago Maggiore from the expansive, floor-to-ceiling windows of this lovely, 300-year-old rustic stone villa. Comfortable furnishings in timeless styles perfectly complement the historic architecture.
“We stayed for three nights with our 3-year-old and our dog, and this home was exactly as-advertised: cozy, inviting, and spectacular panoramic views that dropped our jaws every time we entered. As with any cliffside home in a tiny Italian village, arriving and parking can take some effort — but we never once regretted it. In fact, this is a place where my husband and I both agree we’d like to return. (And that almost never happens!) Even before arrival, Simon and his wife made it clear the were happy to help with any questions and wanted us to be comfortable. It’s not obvious from the listing, but the two bedrooms are separated by a floor in between and they wanted to be sure that would work for our family. **The bathroom is also on the lowest level, which may be important to those with mobility issues or who wake frequently during the night to use the restroom. The beds were quite comfortable and our daughter slept very well in the lower bedroom, which was considerably cooler than the one upstairs (we stayed during a June heat wave). The side patio was a sanctuary again with that view, and the quiet town of Someraro felt like a film set. Our generous hosts left us a bottle of wine, a huge loaf of delicious rustic bread, and their assurance that they were just a phone call away should we need anything at all. After chatting with our neighbors and dining at Ristorante Cardini, we felt we were among friends. (And the food! We’ve lived in Italy for 2.5 years and this was a unique dining experience with pear-stuffed pasta and a pistachio soufflé for dessert. Paired with the views and the friendly proprietors and those views again — Mamma! One afternoon we realized we’d forgotten to buy wine while we were in Stresa, so I popped into Cardini — even though they were closed — and they happily sold me a chilled bottle for below menu price. This is why I love Italy.) Even writing this review makes me pine to return. I can easily see why Hemingway loves Stresa, and should I ever write an award-winning novel, let it be known that I loved Someraro even more — relaxing in our eagle’s nest above the lake.”
