About our home

Can also do non-similtaneous swap. wonderful characteristic independent townhouse with 2 large double bedooms, right in the historic village on ground floor, steps from the bars/cafes for coffee, food shopping, bread, vegetables. everything you need including rural green belt of 20 kms for walking cycling by the river is mere steps from the front door. There is space to park if you want to drive, but not necessary as the train station is 4 minutes walk. and we are connected directly to the airport by train. Swiss border is close by and Lugano is a good day trip, by train all the way.
The good part of the village is that you really get to interact with the locals, and hear Italian, and live like an Italian, there is a market for organic food every monday, again 4 mins walk. its not a tourist theme park
my address for enquiries is wisequeens@gmail.com
It snows in winter always!
The cleaner works on an hourly rate, and will come in on request and needs to be paid by the guests.
But dont just take my word for it This is what some of our guests have thought of the house.

This was a great start to our Italian adventure. Amanda was so helpful, with lots of good advice. On arrival she showed us around the village to get our bearings and made us feel comfortable. Everyone we met was very friendly. We loved her cat, Bellagio, who was always there to greet us when we came home from our travels. The house was perfect for us, a family of four - it was so homely and we always felt relaxed here away from the rush of the city. This is an excellent base for travel to the great city of Milano, the relaxing fresh air of Como and its lovely Duomo and beautiful Lake Como. It is only an easy four minute walk to the railway station with trains every 20 mins. A great location!

fabulous location - both Lake Como and Milan are easily accessible by train and the town itself is well resourced and full of surprises. Best mojitos I've ever had for instance! Amanda met us at her town house when we arrived and showed us around her place and introduced us to the people and places who would make our stay so enjoyable. Her place is an easy place to stay in - a very relaxed feel and well appointed. The house so welcoming too - fresh flowers everywhere, lovely linen and some basic food supplies to start us off. We would definitely stay here again!

The village of couldn't be more picturesque and the house was great. A great host and when we arrived she gave us a wonderful tour of the town, made some local introductions, and got us all settled in. Bellagio, the resident cat, was a delight to come home to after a day out and about. Really nice place to stay if you want a more rural experience than the big city. And Como, short trip - we took the boat from Como to Bellagio and had a great day of it.
