About our home

Please note we are UK based, so not looking for any direct UK home swaps.

Our beautiful apartment on Lake Como is used as our holiday home (we're based in the UK) and we visit it as often as we can - unfortunately not enough! So, we're looking forward to trying lovehomeswap and exploring new places around the world. As we sometimes rent the apartment out, we have a host who lives nearby who can meet you at the apartment and show you around etc, as well as all the amenites in place to arrange cleaning & fresh linen. We would have to pass on the relatively small cost of cleaning and linen (€115) at the end of your stay.

Some more details about the apartment and local area: situated on the western shore about 12kms up the lake, on the quieter lake road, our apartment is in Laglio, one of the most beautiful villages on Lake Como (and home to one George Clooney!). The village itself has a bar, several restaurants and shops, including a post office and deli. Regina Residence is a beautiful, converted metal mill on the edge of Lake Como that has been split into a small number of apartments. Our ground floor corner apartment is newly converted and has the added benefit of having the largest private garden of Regina Residence, facing the sun all day. There are also beautiful communial gardens that are tiered down towards the lake. The luxury apartment has a large double bedroom and another large bedroom that is a double or twin. The fully equipped, bespoke granite kitchen has an adjourning dining and lounge area with large French doors opening directly out onto the garden, a 32 inch flat screen TV with Sky and a Hi-Fi/DVD player. Regina Residence is securely gated with lift access directly from the lake road level and secure underground parking (so no stairs). The apartment is suitable for couples or families and is particularly well equipped for children, with a cot, highchair and various other children's amenities.

Laglio is easily reached and is an hour's drive from all three of Milan's airports (Malpensa, Linate and Bergamo) and there are trains to Como and buses that stop in the village.

Take a ferry ride, visit a beautiful historic villa, hire a boat, go for a swim, grab a gelato or just enjoy a prosecco gazing out at what has to be the most beautiful lake in the world!

A few recent reviews from Owner's Direct:

Absolutely wonderful, great stay, great apartment!
5 out of 5
Absolutely perfect stay. Great property, exactly as the pictures show with all the amenities mentioned. Couldn't of had a better stay. Couple of issues due to past residents/general wear and tear but i mentioned these to the landlord who immediately got in touch and rectified things. Laglio is a lovely little lakeside village - plenty to do around the lake too. Como is a 15-20 minute drive and they landlord explains local shops and amenities brilliantly. I'd love to stay again and highly recommend this place to anyone.

Great apartment

Together with my wife and dog we enjoyed a two week stay this summer. Apart from the wifi internet connection and a broken drying rack everything was up to specification or better. We especially liked the nice design of and furniture in the apartment. Our dog was particularly happy to be able to run around on the lawn all day.
The owner (Nick) and our hostess (Cinzia) did a perfect job in providing descriptions and guidance beforehand as well as on arrival.

Excellent !
5 out of 5
This is a fantastic apartment in a great location. My partner and I and 2 friends stayed here for a week, and found it an excellent base for exploring this lovely area, The property is roomy, light, easily big enough for 4 adults, and equipped and furnished to a very high standard. A special mention must go to the beds - so comfortable, some of the best sleep of my life, although, that could have been the mountain air. The private outside area is elevated and has pretty views over the village onto the lake and mountains beyond. we ate breakfast outside every morning. The village of Laglio has to be one of the best on Como, it is small and quiet, but with facilities. The apartment is situated right in the village centre, a 1 minute walk from a lakeside bar /cafe, and virtually next door to a small but well stocked food market. Despite this, it is so quiet at night. The larger town of Cernobbio is a short distance away. Nick, the owner, was very easy to deal with, good, prompt communications. He obviously knows the area, with suggestions and advice of what to do, and places to go, thanks Nick ! We had a fabulous week here, hope to return soon, and would recommend it very highly.
