We had a wonderful time in Casa Carlotta. The booking, e mailing etc. were so easy and Carlotta was really helpful. The house is just as described, really clean and comfortable. Carlotta met us at the house and showed us around. She had also provided a lot of goodies, fruit, juice, milk, wine etc. The house is well equipped and the garden was wonderful in both sunshine and rain. The covered loggia meant we could still sit outside no matter the weather. You can see the lake from the garden and the garden itself was nice.

Unusually for the Como area we were able to walk up and down to Lierna, the steepest bit was the lane from the house to the road. Anywhere else we have stayed in the area has been far too steep to walk anywhere. So it was nice to be able to walk. Lierna has a small supermarket, bars, restaurants, a beach and a popular ice cream shop. It is small but nice. The house is in an ideal location. It was quiet but just a few minutes away from Varrena and about fifteen minutes away from Lecco. We parked at Varenna and bought a day ticket on the boat ( €15 each) and that let us visit all the famous places on the lake - Bellagio, Menaggio etc. In fact on our last day we bought the same tickets and just enjoyed just sitting on the boat for a few hours in the sunshine.

We can certainly recommend Casa Carlotta, we will return.

“Chic garden appartment”

This is a stylish relaxing garden retreat in the stunning setting of Lake Como.
The garden ...inside outside living space is luxury away from the busling tourist parts of the area.
Extremely well equipped ,very clean and Carlotta cannot do enough for you.
If I can give you one pointer .....book the first night dinner ( or any dinner for that matter !) They offer a typical Italian meal with home cooked ingredients brought to the appartment . I was kind of expecting a big bowl of pasta etc ....but no ..anti pasta...homemade bread from mama , 2 main course and 2 pots of homemade pudding . It's exquisite, we have feasted on it for days.
So if I had to name this place in 3 words
Beautiful-stylish-peaceful

A party of six of us have just returned from a four night stay at Casa Carlotta. We were met by Carlotta on arrival and she was lovely and very informative. We opted for a meal to be prepared and cooked for us that evening by Carlotta's sisters for €25 each, and when it arrived it was wonderful. We had a huge selection of starters a main and sweet plus a bottle of wine. The fridge was also stocked up with essentials to get us through until we shopped.
The house is beautifully presented and spotlessly clean with everything you need. The bedrooms were bright and airy and everything you needed was there for your convenience. It was lovely being able to sit out in the garden taking in the spectacular views of the lake and in the evening we were invited to watch the fire flies putting on a light show for us as we sipped wine.
It's a lovely walk down to the small town and as we had no transport used the train and local ferries to take us around this stunning region. Personally we felt a car wasn't essential here and as there were 6 of us in our party found public transport excellent.
There was only one thing we all agreed that was missing in Casa Carlotta and that was more mirror's in the bedroom's. If the bathroom's are in use your unable to find another mirror but that's all we found was lacking.
We would 100% recommend staying here and would love to return again one day
Thank you Carlotta for a memorable stay. Xx

Casa Carlotta is modern, beautiful and comfortable. There is plenty of space for all five of us, and the apartment is very well equipped for long stays. Carlotta was very responsive and helpful from my first email. Since she knew that we would arrive around dinner time and may not have time to shop, she stocked the fridge full of eggs, cheeses, cured meats, milk, juice and bread so that we could prepare a good hearty breakfast the following morning. The garden is beautiful, although we couldn't make more use of it due to bad weather. We all felt like home here and agreed that this was a good based to explore Lake Como.

We had a lovely stay at Casa Carlotta.
The apartment was clean and beautifully presented. The addition of the garden was lovely and a nice place to sit reading or just to relax in the sun. Well appointed kitchen, fully equipped with everything you need. At lot of thought and attention has gone in to this property. Overall, excellent accommodation, would not hesitate to book and stay again.
