t is great to live in Sonia's house for the weekend. The location is great, easy accessible to everywhere. It is on a hill so parking requires some techniques. But Sonia is great, houses is great with a lot of resources. We wanted to heat up pizza, but there was no microwave oven, Sonia and her family lives downstairs so they heated up the pizza for us on their stove. Breakfast provided in the morning is super awesome, lots of great coffee, croissants and ham & cheese. The only one thing was that since it was pretty hot, but there was no AC, when we open the window there are quite a few mosquitos. Otherwise it was a perfect house! Thank you Sonia!
Sonia et Simon sont des hôtes très accueillants. Ils se sont sans difficulté adaptés à notre arrivée tardive et nous ont reçus avec grand sourire et bonne humeur. A recommander
We LOVED our time here in Como, and it was largely due to Sonia and Simon’s hospitality. Even with my terrible Italian, they communicated with us patiently and thoroughly, helping us to navigate the area and the activities we wanted to experience. Breakfast every morning was perfect, and both the garden and terrace were heavenly. Our rooms and bathroom were well appointed and very clean. Simply put, we had a lovely stay!
Very cool place to stay for a couple of days. The house itself is on a mountain, from the window - an excellent view. Breakfast is served in the garden at home. Sonia is very good host! Highly recommend!
