“Wonderful bolthole within easy access of Como”
Reviewed June 22, 2013 for a stay in June 2013

Lovely apartment very close to the centre of Como. Had loads of extra's including hairdryer, tea, coffee etc - home from home. Shower was fab and the apartment was bright, airy and spacious. Excellent value for money. Adriano & Gigliola on hand to help with anything you needed. Loads of local info available within the apartment. Well equipped kitchen.
Highly recommend to anyone - it is up a slight hill, parking is available within easy walking distance.
Street names not always easy to follow (or find) - ask (or ring) for direction when in Como!!!!

“Marvellous location!!!”
Reviewed June 21, 2013 for a stay in June 2013

Marvellous location! We fell in love with this appartment and the neighborhood right from the start. The flat is very spacious and well equipped with beautiful ancient furniture and antique pictures that give it great charme. The owners are very caring and keep lots of leaflets and guide books about Como and the region in the appartment. Further, we had some nice talks and they suggested us some activities that we would never have found as tourists. The neighborhood is very authentic with no tourists but some tiny Italien shops where we could always buy some ham, cheese, olives and PASTA. The walk to the city centre takes only 10 minutes. One tiny demerit is the fact, that there were only Italien TV channels. As it was raining a lot during our stay we would have loved to watch TV. But this should not be a criteria to choose a holiday flat. We would recommend this place to everyone and would surely return if we come to Como again!!!

“Great location and nice apartment!”
Reviewed May 30, 2013 for a stay in May 2013

I went there with my parents. Despite the terrible weather (it rained all day every day), we had a wonderful stay in Como. Fortunately, this apartment was very comfortable and cosy, which was really a plus considering the bad weather. The apartment is well furnished and clean. The owners live just next door, are very nice, were very sensitive to our needs and ready to help in any way they can. The location of the apartment is really good, close to the center (5 min walk), and there is a very good and cheap restaurant at 1 min walk, open for lunch and dinner. I certainly recommend this apartment and will rent it again if I have the occasion!

Reviewed January 16, 2013 for a stay in November 2012

we stayed at Casa Margherita for 4 days . Gigiola and her husband were the perfect hostes. we were 5 mins walk from the centre of Lake Como. Casa margherita 2 was very clean and comfortable. it was a pleasure to stay there and again the owners were very helpful. i would reccomend CASA MARGHERITA to anyone who would like to enjoy Lake Como and also enjoy a perfect place to stay. i will be returning in 2013.

“THIS APARTMENT IS PERFECT!”
Reviewed October 14, 2012 for a stay in October 2012

I only arrived home to Australia a few hours ago but my sister and I were so impressed with this apartment that I am keen to write a review immediately. The apartment is big, the position is excellent - only 10-15 minutes walk to everything. A car is definitely not needed. We stayed here 2 weeks and spent 6 glorious days cruising the lake plus we went to Lugano in Switzerland, Milano and Bergamo, all easily reached by train or bus. The Brunate funicular is 10 minutes away also. Como itself is a great place to just wander up and down the narrow streets within the city walls - also only 10 minutes away. The lounge, separate dining and main bedroom look out over Como and the steeple of a church whose chiming bells were a bonus - they didn't start until 7.30am and stopped at about 7pm at night so there was no problem with disturbance of sleep. Heaps of restaurants just a short walk away. Como is a really lovely city.

But more importantly, the owner of the apartment, Gigliola and her husband Adriano, were so friendly and helpful. We practised our italian with them and every day we would be greeted with a smile and any bits of advice on what was happening in the area. It was a truly delightful experience! I strongly recommend this apartment, you will not be disappointed. Also, we felt very safe and secure both in the apartment and in Como generally.

Finally a big' THANK YOU' to Gigliola and Adriano!!
