“Amazing view & comfort”
My wife Claudia and me, have spent 7 wonderful days in August 2014 at Faggeto Fantastico in Faggeto Lario. Everything was so excellent as we expected it before coming. The location is unique - Close to the water and an amazing view on the lake and the mountains around it. And another thing which was very important for us was the silence and the piece. The apartment was very cozy, there was everything that we needed for a comfortable life. We will never forget the view from our bedroom. Every morning when we woke up the first thing that we saw was a dark blue lake and a green mountain on the opposite side. Unforgettable! Some good local restaurants we could reach by walking in 5-10 minutes which offer fresh fish and amazing homemade pasta. Thank you very much for it! Summing up we would recommend Faggeto Fantastico for everybody who appreciates comfort, good food around and a quiet and friendly atmosphere. Christian and Claudia from Konstanz/Germany
“Fantastico, c'est si vrai.”
Ce lieu paradisiaque mérite bien le nom de "Fantastico". La vue est splendide, le logement est agréable ainsi que la piscine que les enfants ont aimée. Nous n'avons jamais trouvé une location aussi bien équipée. La plage est simple mais se baigner dans le lac de Côme est également très agréable. C'est un endroit idéal pour rayonner: Côme, Tremezzo, Bellagio, des villas magnifiques ainsi que leurs jardins. Milan et Bergame pour les jours de pluie. Mais nous n'avons pas tout vu et pas assez profité du site. Il est évident que nous reviendrons. Merci Nicholas pour cette semaine "fantastique".
“A great place to stay and perfect for exploring Lake Como”
It says it all in the title. Secluded gated complex with outdoor swimming pool, lovely grounds, and designated parking. Well appointed apartment with its own terrace a couple of minutes walk from a bar, great restaurant, beach and ferry stop. It has an amazing view up Lake Como to the mountains; I doubt whether Mr Clooney has a better one. Personally i would not bother to drive anywhere as the ferries are quicker, and less stressful. If you like hiking then you can go up the lakeside hills and walk along the top to Como or Bellagio. We had a great time here and saw most of the sights of Lake Como . I especially liked Villa Carlotta and the funicular from Como Town. Thank you, Nick for a great holiday! John and Caroline Aldous
“Beautifully furnished and equipped apartment in a wonderful loca”
Fantastic views and a great location. The apartment is incredibly well furnished and equipped; the owner has thought of everything. Our daughter found the sofa bed very comfortable. Great selection of books and Dvds. A short drive to either Como or Bellagio. The restaurant "Vapore" is directly below; excellent service and very reasonable prices.
“A perfect place for a peaceful gateway”
Even before we left for Faggeto Lario, I felt secure in the knowledge that this was going to be a great place for a couple to spend a week on Lake Como. Nick's attention to detail in his visitors' guide was invaluable in guiding us into the residence and to the apartment and for providing local information. As we arrived late in the evening, it was dark which added to excitement of taking the funicular down to the apartment. When my partner saw the beautiful pool lit up, he exclaimed 'I'm in a James Bond film.' The view from the apartment is stupendous and a perfect place to while away the hours, whilst absorbing the beauty of Lake Como. Everything you need is in the apartment, including an eclectic DVD collection and an Italian cookery book which I used to perfect bruschetta with tomatoes and basil. We worked through the DVD whilst enjoying a glass of wine or two. We had an enjoyable meal at Il Vapore where the staff were incredible friendly. Never before have I been served a dessert where you add your own vodka. We also recommend the beach bar where there was live music on Friday evenings. The apartment was perfectly located for catching the ferry or taking the bus to Bellagio and Como. We also enjoyed the walking opportunities the Como area has to offer. We would certainly recommend Nick's apartment to anyone who wants a relaxing and calm holiday where you can happily read a book, whilst sunning yourself by the pool, or spend time exploring Lake Como and its surroundings.
“You will not be disappointed!”
We recently stayed four nights with our two young sons at this modern apartment in a fantastic location. The owner is very helpful and provides plenty of advice and assistance prior to your arrival. The apartment itself is perfect - every thing is catered for, and it is very modern and appealing, and has a most spectacular view right over Lake Como. You will not be disappointed. There is an outdoor setting for your exclusive use which we used daily for breakfast, afternoon nibbles and drinks. The view is amazing and absorbing. Not only when you sit on the outdoor setting but also when you open the shutters. it is exactly like the pictures, no trick photography! The apartment is very spacious for a 1 bedroom, and light and bright. Our two children slept on the lounge suite fold out couch which was spacious and comfortable. I especially liked the little touches in the apartment - Dvds for adults and the kids, maps & suggestions for the area, basic food staples, a local phone, and especially wi-fi. The pool is excellent and was most suitable for our children as it had a shallow end that was decent in size for them to play in. There are plenty of sun beds and the view from the pool area is superb. You could easily spend the day here. The gardens surrounding the apartments are beautiful, shady and well maintained. The location of the apartment is fantastic. It is a short walk (less than 5 mins) down to the lake, the ferry stop, the bus stop to Bellagio and Como, and an excellent Restaurant 'Vapore', with tasty Italian fare and excellent service and hospitality. I must also mention that the apartment and its complex/gardens/pool are also very secure with locked gates. We hope to return one day soon, and highly recommend this apartment.
“Peaceful, stunning view, and romantic stay”
Located in Faggato Lario, we took the elevator down to a lovely walkway to our apartment. It felt like a secluded and private hideaway. Yet from the porch, sipping our prosecco, we gazed at the expansive views of Lake Como with the steep hills and beautiful light. The apartment was modern, yet warm decor, and very clean with the comforts of home for cooking, wifi and music. There is a great pool up the walkway. Wonderful restaurant, La Vapore, within walking distance and a fun cafe with a small beach area... Thank you Nick and Patricia, who was very helpful at the beginning of our stay. Marcie and Tom
“An absolutely stunning location...you won't want to leave!”
My husband and I stayed here in May and had an absolutely wonderful time. We were wanting some R & R and came home very much revived. The owner, Nick, had sent us detailed information well in advance about the property and local area. Not long after our arrival the very helpful and friendly caretaker arrived to check we were safely installed. The apartment is situated within a and peaceful and private complex of apartments with the most beautiful grounds full of colourful flower beds, shrubs and lawns. The actual apartment we stayed in had large French doors opening onto a terrace and an uninterupted view of the lake (exactly as you see in the picture on this listing). The apartment is spacious, well appointed and tastefully decorated. The kitchen is well equipped if you feel like cooking. There is a lovely big shower in the bathroom. The bed has a good mattress (very important!) and there is plenty of storage space for clothes. The lounge area has a large television and DVD player and there is a library of Dvds and books to relax with of an evening. Don't worry about bringing tourist information - there is plenty in the apartment, including local maps. The complex has a wonderful swimming pool and lots of sun loungers. You also have access down a path and through a gate leading to the lake shore where there is a little beach with a cafe. There is also a very good restaurant where we ate on the last night and the food and service was superb. Bellagio is about half an hour's drive and a must to visit - don't miss the Villa Melzi and gardens and there are lots of shops and restaurants. It's also easy to get about the lake on the ferries that ply between various locations and we went to the town of Como in this way, which was easier than driving there. There is a ferry point just a few minutes drive from the apartment and you can leave your car there for the day. It is difficult to find anything negative to say about our experience!
“A charming, chic and stupendous luxury stay, with truly magnific”
Our week long stay at Riva in June this year, was the icing on the cake, after our travels in Tuscany and the amalfi Coast. The apartment was a surprise treat...with stylish, fully fitted, comfortable interiors, natural light and uninterrupted views of the mountains, lake and the heritage church of Fagetto Lario. The doors of the condo apartment opened to the sitout view, beautiful flower gardens and walkways, which made the apartment feel more like a private cottage - a home away from home. With the added advantage of a swimming pool overlooking the lake - just a few steps away. The bedroom was perfect for my parents, whilst the queen size sofa bed in the living area (large enough for two), was quite grand for me. In addition, there was a three seater sofa in the living area with a 42" TV, a CD collection of new movies and dreamy old classics, which we thoroughly enjoyed, one rainy day. The large dining table played a dual role for our computer workstations too! A 5 minute walk down from the apartment brings one to a sunny little beach with its own bar and snacks served through the day...We were lucky to be present for their annual 'summer' open bar night of music and free snacks. The adjoining ristorante - Vapore, soon became our favourite haunt for their local fish specialities and the delicious Spaghetti alle Vongole! The location of the property was really convenient with the bus stop right near the entrance - giving us easy links to Como and Bellagio. The ferry stop too, connected us to the picturesque towns of Cernobbio, Bellagio, Varenna with ease. But really what made our holiday was the super chic comfort of the home apartment, its incredible views, and a huge feel good factor of the space which can only be experienced. Patrizia, the caretaker was wonderful - always helping us with a smile and genuine enthusiasm. Thank you so much for a truly relaxed and wonderful stay. We are already planning our next visit!

“Stunning views, convenient base”
I stayed there in November 2011. Lots of restaurants and places to visit with lovely Como nearby for shopping trips...even out of season. We went hiking round one of the nearby lakes and look forward to return trip to do more walking and cycling, and perhaps some paragliding. The property is set among lovely gardens, with a pool for summer cooling. Nearby villages on the lake shore are as picturesque as you could imagine anywhere in the world. Fun experience!
