The property is in Nesso – a historic and picturesque town by Lake Como. Nesso is famous for its waterfall that divides the town into two parts and the ancient Roman bridge by the lakefront.
For the guests' convenience, we suggest arriving by car. From the pier, there are boat rides to Como and other nearby lakeside towns. However, they don't run too often. Tickets can be bought at the pier or on the Navigazione Laghi website. There is also a bus service operating between Como and Bellagio (line C30). The bus stop is located on the main road. Tickets can be obtained from the driver (cash only) or in the minimarket in Via Del Tivano 29 in Nesso. Please note that the buses don't run very often and services stop at around 8 pm! Taxi rides are available, but not easily attainable in the region.
From Como, it is convenient to travel to Milan and Switzerland (Lugano, Bellinzona, Locarno) by train.
The nearest airports are Milano Malpensa, Milano Linate, and Orio Al Serio in Bergamo. It is possible to arrange a direct shuttle to and from the airport at an additional cost.
