Overview
Townhouse -
2 Bedrooms, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 6
Sala Comacina, Lake Como, Lombardy
Like dazzling jewels, the towns of Como, Tremezzo, Menaggio, and Bellagio sparkle along the shores of Lake Como, where also glitters a hidden gem, Sala Comacina.

Here in this lakeside-idyll steeped in ancient Roman history stands Casa Matra Ponto, the ideal getaway offering space and comfort for six or romantic hideaway for two.

Free Wi-Fi is included with Matra Ponto.

Air-conditioning for your added comfort -

In northern Italy, the Mediterranean climate of Lake Como is influenced by the surrounding mountains rising to some 1000 metres above the lake surface, often with humid summer days, but with gorgeous balmy evenings (air-con being rare in Italy), with the result that the shoulder seasons of spring & autumn may be more agreeable for travelling.

With its thick walls and double-glazing Matra Ponto may be kept cooler if windows...

Wendy's house is beautiful, she has catered for every need, leaves a lovely welcome basket and all other essentials. All communication with Wendy was really easy, she was waiting for us in the car park when we arrived, gave us a guided tour of the house and then showed us round the village and made sure we got a table...
