Como City Loft is a place where lines and colors merge to create a harmony of shapes. A modern and elegant minimalistic one-bedroom apartment in Como city center, the perfect starting point for your adventures. Young couples will particularly enjoy the youthful atmosphere.
The apartment can host 4 guests. The double bedroom is located on the open mezzanine and is the realm of brightness. The kitchen is worthy of a chef. The comfortable double sofa gives a touch of character to the living area overlooking the inner courtyard, quiet and peaceful, yet within walking distance from the busy city life.
In this property, pets are allowed upon request and at an additional cost to ensure allergy-free cleaning.
Baby beds are available at an extra cost.
Extra cleaning and linen are available at an additional cost.
Transportation can be provided, please contact us!
The apartment is on the ground floor, but there are some steps before the entrance and in the apartment too (to reach the bedroom in the loft).
It is possible to park short-term to unload luggage in front of the building. Unfortunately, there is no private parking, but street parking is available. In nearby Viale Lecco, you can park your car only within the blue stripes. Pay time is from 8 am to 8 pm. Pay at the machine and get the ticket, or use the "EasyPark" app. There are also paid parking garages in the city: “VALDUCE” in Viale Lecco, “JASCA” in Piazza Volta, “CENTRO LAGO” with an entrance in Via Recchi, and “TRIBUNALE” in Via Auguadri.
HIGHLIGHTS & HOME TRUTHS
>Very central location in the historical city center a 10 minute walk from the lake.
>The apartment is in the courtyard, so it is very quiet.
>A few days a week (Tue, Thurs, Sat), there is an open-air market on the street outside which can be crowded and noisy (but you will not hear it in the apartment).
Everything is a walking distance away: bars, shops, restaurants, sightseeing objects, and Como lake. The nearby farmer's market (Mercato coperto) sells fresh produce (seasonal vegetables, cheese, meat, fish, etc.) that the guests can use to prepare delicious meals in the equipped kitchen.
From Como San Giovanni station, there are regular trains departing to Milano Centrale and Switzerland (Lugano, Bellinzona, Locarno). From Como Nord Lago station, there is a connection to Milano Cadorna.
In the city of Como and nearby towns, ASF Autolinee buses are in operation. Tickets can be obtained from the driver (cash only) or in designated places (the main bus station in Piazza Matteotti, bars, and tobacco stores). Taxis are also available. However, the historical center, the main sightseeing objects, and the lake are a walking distance away from the property.
From the pier in central Como, a local ferry service will take you to Cernobbio, Torno, Bellagio, Varenna, Colico, and other lakeside towns. Please note – if traveling in high season, we advise you to be patient with long waiting lines at the ticket office. Tickets can also be bought online on the Navigazione Laghi website.
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.
For more questions regarding transportation, please do not hesitate to contact us – we will be happy to help and ensure that you reach your preferred destination!
>We advise you to take a day to visit the marvelous little towns around the lake. Como city is the urban center of the area, but the little towns are gems with glorious lakeside villas.
>To travel and walk around Lake Como, especially in the little towns, comfortable shoes are a must.
>There are many public drinking-water fountains in the area, and the water is safe to drink unless stated otherwise. Tap water is also drinkable. You can carry your own refillable bottle!
>If you are looking for a relatively easy hike in the area and want to enjoy mountain views anyway, Lake Como Greenway is an easy-to-follow trail that connects the lakeside towns from Colonno to Griante and doesn't require too much walking uphill. A bus will take you to the starting point in Colonno.
>Look for traditional restaurants where you can try local foods such as Lake Como fish dishes.
>In Italy, many shops (especially the little ones) and services are closed in the middle of the day, so be careful to plan your shopping accordingly.
>Lake Como is one of the deepest lakes in Europe and the deepest in Italy. Swimming and diving are prohibited in many areas and can be dangerous. For those who wish to dwell in the water, however, there are some options. In Como city, there is an outdoor pool near Villa Olmo, but swimming in the lake is not recommended and is mostly forbidden. There are beaches in other lakeside towns. Lido di Bellagio and pebbly San Giovanni beach will be waiting for those who wish to travel and explore the beautiful town of Bellagio which lies in the middle of the two Larian branches. Locals and visitors also enjoy traveling to Nesso where the bravest swimmers can jump into the lake from the ancient Roman bridge near the waterfall.
>Lake Como is located in a mountainous region. The surrounding pre-Alps might not seem very high, but the climate is nevertheless affected by the nearby mountains, and temperatures can change quickly. Be particularly attentive to the weather when hiking, and bring some warm and waterproof clothes with you!
There are so many great things to do around Lake Como! We can suggest and help you to arrange the following:
>Private boat rides
>Kayaks/SUPs in the lake
>Flights in a seaplane above the lake
>Yoga and meditation classes
>Hiking and foraging
>Trekking in the mountains
>Guided tours to Milan
