Bright apartment with magnificent lake view, large attic, fireplace and wood-burning oven, located on the Romantic Shore of Lake Como.
Casa Lua offers the magic of waking up and enjoying the sunrise on a spectacular Lake Como. In the Winter evenings, sitting in front of the fireplace to admire the lake below in its many shades of color, is priceless. Sufficiently secluded to feel always "out of the routine", but sufficiently close to Como, Milano, main airports and city life. Access to the lake is only at 10 meters, and you can just step out of the house and jump in the water!
Casa Lua is an independent portion of a typical stone house dated back to 1800, built with thick walls above an ancient shipyard that produced the typical wooden boats; it is in a quiet residential area, adjacent to the parks of historic villas, and about 500 meters from George Clooney's villa, but nevertheless close to the village centre. It is a prestigious apartment that combines the rustic external charm of the original stone and Roman lime plaster, with the modern essential internal lines and materials (wood, steel, glass): the final result is lightness, warmth and well-being.
The conservative renovation was carried out by the owners over many years of research and study and according to the principles of bio-architecture, ended in 2014, and made this house a rare jewel in the area as it still keeps most of the original character.
Casa Lua is actually a holiday house and has the highest score on the three portals used. Here are some excerpts from reviews of guests who have lived there.
“A wonderful, unique place to stay - Casa Lua is no ordinary house, it is something quite special. The apartment is recently refurbished with a high standard of furnishing and decor. A lot of thought and care has gone into creating this lovely apartment by the owners. ”
“This is a beautifully designed apartment with a wonderful view of the lake. It is in an area full of character with great views, picturesque streets and lovely plants hanging over ancient walls.”
“The apartment is superb. The location doesn't really have any drawback at all and offers good connection via boat and bus. ”
“The sound of waves breaking on the shore of the below “beach" was wonderfully calming. ”
“It’s tricky writing a review when you discover an apartment as perfect as Casa Lua. ”.
“Heaven of peace - The house is wide with a privacy for the parents room and a top floor for the kids and just incredibly warm and soothing, you can hear the lake waves crushing slowly from the leaving room and watch the beautiful view from the window.”
Entrance terrace of 10 square meters. Three rooms, two wide corridors, a living room of 40 sqm with lake view and open kitchen, two bathrooms - one very large with a bath and the other with a large shower.
Hundred years entrance door of solid chestnut wood.
Floors: original Lombard terracotta from the mid 1800s and brushed larch wood. High quality finishes, all materials and paints are biological, wall heating in copper pipes, solar panels for hot water, thermo-fireplace that can also be used with the glass opened for cooking, wood pizza oven. Isolated from artificial electromagnetic fields and with current circuit breakers in the bedrooms (prepared also for the other rooms), insulated electric cables and dedicated power lines for each household appliance. Marble shelves in the bathrooms and in the kitchen. The kitchen has ergonomic tops / wall units that make it extremely usable and comfortable.

“Perfect apartment in an amazing place - This is a tough review to write because I do not know how to say enough good things without repeating positive adjectives. The apartment: located in a very old building which has wonderful character. The apartment has been redone by the owners. No detail was spared. It is just beautiful. They used wood in many ways to finish everything from the winding stairs to the floors and accents everywhere. The kitchen sports modern appliances. It is very well appointed. Two bathrooms beautifully done. Again, no detail overlooked. The living room has comfortable seating for four. From the living room you can look out to an amazing view of Lake Como. We had a fire in the fireplace on two of the nights we were there. The area: it is magnificently beautiful.”
The public car parking and the marina, with the possibility of a private space for the car/boat assigned, are located at 30 meters, at 50 meters the bus station and at 7 minutes walk the ferry pier.
Cernobbio, the Swiss border and the highway entrance are at less than 10 minutes by car; Como, town with plenty of free exhibitions and cultural, musical and artistic events - very often in magnificent villas like Villa Olmo or Villa del Grumello - is at 15 minutes by car.
One good restaurant (Fioroni) with typical plates is just 5 minutes on foot. A good pizzeria with a big terrace looking over the lake and open till late is 7 minutes walking above the lake, "Una finestra sul lago". Another very good one (Acquadolce) is 2 km away, in Urio. A typical fish restaurant is in the nearby Laglio (Vecchio Molo), about 20 minutes walking. At 5 minutes walking from Casa Lua there is a cafè-bar selling also tobaccos, a pharmacy, the post office, the church, then the bank, a minimarket-bakery and an emporium selling journals and others and the hairdresser. A minimarket (Donegana, Via Regina Nuova 59) with meat of their own production, vegetables, bread and typical products is 10 minutes walking up the hill or 5 minutes by car. On Tuesdays (in the nearby village Laglio) and Thursdays, in the morning, there is a van/stall selling vegetables and fruits; on Saturdays there is a van/stall selling very good local cheese. A mall with a supermarket Bennet and other shops, open every day until 9 pm, is only 8 minutes driving towards Como.
Depending on the season, you can enjoy the lake (boat, canoeing, paddling) or you can take a tour by ferry to visit the tiny colorful villages on the lake (Argegno, Bellagio, Sala Comacina and the island, Bellano, Menaggio,...).
You can go biking by the lake, or try the steep trials or single tracks with your mountain bike. There are quite a few rent a bike and electric-bike places. You can go trekking all the year around, as the Summer is generally not so hot and the Winters are often dry and mild. The trails generally run above the lake and open on wonderful and breathtaking landscapes! For climbers, a cliff with free climbing walls and a striking lake view is located above the village, about 20 minutes on foot.
Many exhibitions in the famous Villa Olmo, Villa Erba and other villas and festivals can be visited all the year round: Creative Walks in the beautiful Como or surroundings almost every week, Lake Como Film Festival in July, literature and culture festival ParoLario in July, OrticoLario in October, paintings exhibitions at Villa Olmo, the music festivals Festate in Chiasso and Mendrisio (CH) in June, Estival Jazz e Blues to Bop festivals (Lugano) in July and September, Music Festival Tremezzina in August, Palio del Baradello in Como beginning of September, and others.
