Modern Luxury AtticApartment - Via Rimoldi 29 - Como
Wireless internet connection
A charming Nordic-style apartment in a green area.
A spectacular interplay: the wide-boarded oak floor, the candid white walls and the minimal decoration inside emphasize the majestic views of the city outside.
The apartment is in modern style, spread over two levels.
3 bedrooms: one double, one double with two single beds, and the third one is versatile (double or twin beds, depending on your needs). There are 2 bathrooms and an equipped kitchen. The highlight is the large terrace – perfect for an aperitif at sunset or a summer breakfast with spectacular views of the city and its colorful roofs, the lake, and the surrounding mountains.
In this property, pets are allowed at an extra 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!
There is an elevator in the building, but the apartment is two-leveled with narrow stairs. To get to the elevator, guests are required to take some steps beforehand, so mobility is required.
A convenient private double garage available to guests at no extra fee.
Surely, one of the upsides of this modern penthouse is the location: a walking distance away from the center of Como and all the amenities, but also near to a hiking area for lovers of greenery!
A two-minute walk, and you are on the path to the Baradello Castle! From there, you have a wide choice of hiking trails in the splendid Parco della Spina Verde: the place to be for fans of outdoor activities! Get ready for breathtaking views of the lake and Como city! Some of the paths even lead to Switzerland!

>The apartment is spacious, modern, well-lit, and well-equipped.
>From the windows and the terrace, you can see the whole city, including the characteristic green dome of the cathedral.
>The kitchen is perfect for cooking, but there is no nearby grocery store, so food will have to be brought from afar.
The main sightseeing objects, Lake Como, and train stations are a walking distance away from the apartment, but not immediately close. It takes around 30 min to walk to the lakeside and 25 minutes to walk to the nearest train stations – Como San Giovanni and Como Camerlata.
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 (bus station in Piazza Matteotti, bars and tobacco stores). Taxis are also available.
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!
From Como San Giovanni station, there are regular trains departing to Milano Centrale and Switzerland (Lugano, Bellinzona, Locarno). From Como Nord Lago, there is a train connection to Milano Cadorna.

>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 and in the mountains, 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 a wonderful, 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 mostly prohibited. There is a nice little beach in the town of Careno.
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
