We are at a height of 900 meters in a lovely valley between the Lake Como and the many mountains which surrounds us, 2 minutes from the town of Casasco. The apartment is elegantly furnished and accurate in every detail.
“The only way to properly describe Maurizio's Casasco D'Intelvi home is to say exactly what it is: Absolutely fantastic! I was seeking a very unique getaway that would put me into (relative) isolation and total relaxation -- with easy access to world class hiking. And that is certainly what I got (and then some!). The photos are good -- but they do not tell the whole story. I want to go back for much longer than 5 days! I hiked daily and every single trail I went on brought me into some of the most stunning locations where I often didn't see anyone else for hours. But then, in classic Italian fashion, a "refuge" would appear where I could drink and eat and then continue hiking! Maurizio is a source of huge knowledge of the area. He can tell you about all the hikes … on day one he sorted me out well. He is like the unofficial mayor of the village! After 9 hours on the trails, to return home to his Airbnb every day, was a very inspired landing indeed. That balcony is one of the best I have ever experienced. The flat has everything you need. Truly first class -- from the Nespresso to the crystal wine glasses to an excellent washing machine, hot shower, etc … all is provided. Slept soundly on the fantastic bed too! He sorted me out with keys. So don't worry about the "phone activated lock". There is that option too -- if you want. I would rather have keys. There are 2 restaurants about 3km away. An easy walk up and down the hill or a quick ride on the great bike Maurizio leaves for guests. I ate at Bellavista every day. Lovely family with simple, tasty Italian meals at very reasonable prices. I also took the bus from in front of the restaurant down to Federle D'Intelvi (easy 3km ride) where I then got the bus back to Como (Bus C20 -- comes every hour and takes an hour on a scenic route by the lake). Maurizio picked me up in Federle D'Intelvi when I arrived …. but in case you need to take the bus, it's very easy! (To and from Como train station). Do not hesitate to book this apartment if you are seeking peace and quiet and an Italian experience that you will never forget! Best if you like hiking … but even if not, lounging all day at his apartment is a great option too (internet works well!) Sundays get a bit busier in the area (day trippers) … but it is not excessive at all. If you don't have a car, do not worry. I will be back very soon for sure. Ciao!”
Beautiful flat close to Lake Como, Italy, and Lugano, Switzerland. Enjoy the beauty of nature close to you. Many good restaurants, Golf course. A place to relax and feel at peace. Near Balcone d'Italia, and other excelent places. We also have a picnic area in front of the house, with the company of our neighbor the Ponnies and the dunkeys.
“The house is clean and spacious, with a nice sitting room with a comfortable sofa. The welcome and availability of Claudio make the stay pleasant, together with his advice on the area. The house was supplied with sanitizing gel, a coffee machine with pods already present, along with tea. The balcony and the well-kept garden where you can stop and rest on the deck chairs complete the relaxing experience. Overall an excellent mountain house at a good price, which leaves amazed for cleanliness and availability.”
Accogliente casetta in legno, appena ristrutturata, con una stupenda vista sulla parte più spettacolare del Lago di Como. Ideale per chi vuole fuggire dai luoghi affollati, in quanto si trova in una zona isolata e con ampia possibilita di effettuare passeggiati nei boschi circostanti e nello stesso tempo, si trova comunque in posizione strategica per raggiungere i principali punti di interesse del lago.
“The little house of Patrizia not only offers an indescribable view of Lake Como, but with its loving furnishings, it makes you feel at home straight away. We were warmly welcomed on the first day by already heating the house with the oven and providing us with a small cake as a welcome gift. We can recommend everyone to switch off and relax for a few days, whether sitting on the terrace or watching the lights at the lake from the sofa in the evening ... this place has something magical. The lake, the nearest towns or Milan are very easy to reach within one hour (by train or by car). Restaurant suggestions, shops and sights are listed in a folder in the house. It wasn't a goodbye forever - we will definitely be back! :)”
