Cernobbio Apartment, Lake Como, Italy


Our Apartment


Four people can comfortably stay in our two bedroom apartment, situated in the old part of our town and just 100 metres walk from the lake and Cernobbio’s lakeside piazza. 

It is ideal for a couple, a family of four (possibly five) or a travelling party of four.   Recently we renovated the entire apartment.   Everything in the apartment is new from the parquet flooring and quality fittings through to the furniture and accessories.

We lived here for 18 months (we initially came for eight months but loved it so much we stayed!!) and have compiled a “Welcome Book” packed with countless things to do in the area, favourite restaurants, walking and cycling tracks, festivals and theatre and everything from the best bakery to the best butcher.   Our good friend, Ruth, will greet you when you arrive at our apartment and answer any questions you have.

Our apartment includes

  • Large spacious open plan living area with lounge room, dining table seating six and fully integrated kitchen
  • Master bedroom with queen size bed and built in wardrobe
  • Second bedroom with a “bunk” featuring a double bed on the lower level and a single bed on the higher level and good sized wardrobe
