Interaction with guests
Carmen lives in Como, some 20 minutes away by car. She will always be n hard if you happen to need her.

Bear in mind that Carmen was born and raised in the area and knows all of its secrets; she is a licensed tour guide, and a retired art and history teacher, well-versed in local history, art, and culture - you can ask her anything about itineraries, excursions, etc.

About the neighborhood
The romantic cottage is located on a hillside, right above Lake Como. You will have an unparalleled view of the lake right at your feet.

Remote, very quiet.

We strongly advice renting a car at the airport (either Milan Malpensa or Linate), and driving straight to the cottage.

From Malpensa:
- get on SS336dir - 3 min (1.9 km)
- take SS336, A36 and A9/E35 direction Como. Take exit Como Nord from A9/E35 - 33 min (51.1 km)
- follow SS340 Via Regina to Brienno

The cottage is right across the street from the main Church in the heart of the village, which you will see ahead of you as soon as you turn into it from Via Regina.
You can park anywhere in the village, there are plenty of free-of-charge parking spots - please make sure to use the ones marked in white only. The yellow ones are r...
Car advised
How to get there
Airport: Milan Malpensa: 39.8 mi
Railway: Como San Giovanni: 9.9 mi

After the exit, follow directions for Menaggio. At the roundabout, take the 3rd exit; you will go over a bridge, and then under a tunnel.

You will meet Carmen near the main Church in town, right by the lake (Saints Nazario and Celso Church)
