Casa Lua in Lake Como is a great place for a classic Italian vacation. The location is on the lake with access to the water, view to the lake from the apartment and very well organized hosts which take care of their apartment and their guests beautifully.
Elena and Claudio made sure to tip us on all local restaurants, supermarkets, weather and places to visit around town. They provided us with wood for the fireplace that made the whole stay worm and pleasant, went and got a baby bed (especially for us) and even bought baby shampoo (the best kind). Their kindness and will to help is definitely worth mentioning.
The apartment itself is comfortable, spacious, very clean (extremely clean, really), very quiet and has great light. Claudio and Elena, which made many of the things by themselves, have put a lot of thought, together with great style and taste, and made the place cosy, friendly and meets all needs.

Casa Lua is located directly at Lake Como and newly renovated. The cute appartment is tastefully furnished and very comfortable.
The kitchen is fully equipped, there is a fireplace and a pizza-oven which saved our rainy days. The bathrooms come with a comfortable shower and a huge bathtub.
Both the hosts, Elena and Claudio, spared no efforts to make our stay pleasant and comfortable. They provided us with recommendations for day-trips, restaurants and shops and even parlour games and DVDs for the children. Upon our arrival there was a basket filled with local wine, crackers and cookies welcoming us.
We enjoyed our stay a lot and will be back!
Casa Lua is a beautiful, newly renovated and extremely well-equipped apartment on the shores of Lake Como. Clearly a lot of love has gone into the renovation, and every detail has been well considered. Knowing that the conversion was environmentally friendly was a bonus.
Elena and Claudio were excellent hosts, going above and beyond to cater for our every need. We arrived to find a bottle of prosecco, fresh fruit and chocolate on the table; when the temperature dropped unexpectedly they came over to set the heating and drop off a pile of scarves, coats and cardigans; and Elena even offered me a lift to a supermarket in Como when I found the local shop closed one afternoon. Elena's English is excellent and she was extremely communicative during our stay. Being local, her and Claudio have bucket loads of knowledge of the area and are very happy to make recommendations.
One note on the location - my family and I have visited Carate Urio every year for several years now, and never once hired a car. Carate Urio is a quiet village, but local restaurants and amenities are good, and it is perfectly possible to get around via a combination of ferries, buses and the odd taxi later in the evening. All the major towns and attractions of the lake are within easy reach.
Highly recommended. Thank you both!
