La Dolce is a really cosy house - a comfortable spot where guests will immediately feel at home. We have visited it both with blue and gray skies - it remains just as inviting whatever the time of year. We found it to be a lovely place for a family! The house is located just one kilometre from the western shore of Lake Como and the village of San Siro - a unique, peaceful lakeside town with cobbled streets leading to a beautiful, ancient castle. In San Siro you will find a pizzeria and a bus stop, a grocery store is 2 km south. San Siro is just 6 km north of Menaggio, with more extensive and elegant shopping. You can rent a little boat in San Siro, or use the facilities (swimming pool and tennis court) at the lakeside sports complex in Menaggio, where you can also catch a boat or hydrofoil to take you up and down the lake between Switzerland and Como, or across to Varenna or Bellagio. There are several golf courses in the area.
La Dolce is not on the lakeshore but sits above the lake and the village. Because of its position, the house enjoys beautiful views of the lake and the mountains beyond. A large, fenced-in garden surrounds the house, providing complete privacy. An above-ground swimming pool for children is available in the garden.
The owner has furnished her house with great skill. The colors are lively and warm: pale yellow in the sitting room, green in one bedroom, sky blue in the other. At the upper floor the bedrooms although not very large offer beautiful lake views. The floors of the main living space are covered with cotto tiles, while the bedrooms have wooden floors. The furnishings create a cheerful feeling throughout the house.
Additional amenities include: coffee maker, air conditioning in all bedrooms, internet wifi connection in the living room, large oven, new pool for 2016, garden toys for children, 4-ring-gas hob, electronic entrance gate, enclosed property.TripAdvisor property ID 2049477...Read more
