“Perfect location to explore all that Como has to offer”
Reviewed November 10, 2017 for a stay in October 2017

Charming traditional villa in idyllic setting near St Peter's square overlooking the church bell tower - just beautiful! Very inviting and welcoming and contains everything needed for a home away from home holiday. The shower is on the small side for larger guests but otherwise does not disappoint. Our hosts were amazing and nothing was too much trouble for them. If we have the opportunity, would definitely stay here again. Thank you so much Gigliola and Andriano - gracie mille! Mary & Rob

“40th birthday celebrated in Como!”
Reviewed June 10, 2017 for a stay in June 2017

We had an unforgettably wonderful time at Como, staying at Gigliola's Casa Margherita!
The apartment (which is all on one level in a first floor apartment) is perfectly situated in Como centre (8-10 min leisurely walk to Duomo and gorgeously old historic centre and about 15 min to the breathtaking lake side) and near to pier number 4 where you can happily buy a day or six day pass (six day is very recommended!) to take in all the sites, towns and villas along Lake Como.
This apartment is really special and quite exceptional. So close to everything and yet tucked away in a hidden quiet corner overlooking the Chiesa Cattolica Parrocchiale S. Giuliano, the bells of which will welcome you every day!
Decorated in the old style with beautiful heavy and dark wood furniture with a real feel of a traditional Italian home. This apartment will become your home from home with comfort, style, space, privacy and elegance and with views that are simply exquisite. You will also have a very romantic secluded patio garden surrounded by lovely flowers which you can spend quiet moments and tranquil evening with the intoxicating and heady scent of jasmine which is a spellbinding signature plant of the region.
Gigliola was everything you could possibly want from a perfect host; warm, friendly, kind, generous and helpful, you really will want for nothing.
We were truly heartbroken about leaving having had a magically unforgettable week whereby we were made to feel like old friends.
Gigliola even gave me a beautiful silk scarf for my birthday which I will treasure.
I would recommend this property in a heartbeat for a holiday of a lifetime at Lake Como.

We had a most wonderful time in Como; it is so beautiful, interesting and full of fun.our stay was made all the more memorable by our time in this apartment. It is so lovingly appointed and filled with warmth; we just felt at home here. Giglioni and Adriano were such perfect hosts, the apartment is a reflection of their kindness, and attention to detail.
My husband and I from Auckland, NZ and our daughter, husband and grandson from Maidenhead UK will always remember our stay in this beautiful apartment as a portal to this lovely city.

“Wonderful location, lovely hosts”
Reviewed September 1, 2016 for a stay in August 2016

Casa Margherita is a fantastic base for exploring all of the lake Como area. It's only a few minutes walk from the center of Como city, and the city is the hub from which one can catch boats and buses all around the lake.

The owners live next door to the property: they are friendly and kind, considerate and helpful. We walked from the station and they helped us bring our cases up the last part of the small hill to the property and up the stairs. They answered all our questions, made sure our refuse was taken away and even gave us some small gifts.

The property itself has a lovely courtyard where you can sit or eat and drink. Inside it's clean and comfortable if a little old-fashioned: the twin bedroom and bathroom especially could do with a bit of a makeover. There is a church next door with bells that start at 7:30 am but that just made sure we were up for a full day of exploring :)

“The perfect home from home in beautiful Como!”
Reviewed August 15, 2016 for a stay in August 2016

A beautiful traditional property only 10 minutes from the Cathedral in the centre of Como. Gigliola and her husband were just fantastic and living across the courtyard were able to help with any queries. Very comfortable, clean, fantastic view of the local church and its bell tower (who needs an alarm clock?!) a true home from home. Warm in its presentation, a very useable kitchen, well equipped, a great range of tourist literature, really everything you could want in an Italian home from home.

“Best accommodation in two months of travelling in Europe!”
Reviewed May 31, 2016 for a stay in May 2016

Como and the surrounding area is a delightful city and the Casa Margharita is the best place to enjoy it. It is a 25 minute walk from the train station (although the #5 bus is also available) through the old town. It is in a quiet residential a neighbourhood with shops close by. The apartment is spacious with comfortable beds and wonderful views. A bonus is the garden area where we soaked up the sun and ate our meals. The kitchen was the best equipped we have used on our extended holiday. My two adult children and I were very happy here. But what made the stay really special was Adriano and Gigliola who live next door. From the moment we arrived, Adriano made us feel at home but never intruded on our privacy. She and Gigliola were so thoughtful, leaving out lounge chairs and a tablecloth when they saw that we were enjoying the garden, and giving us sweet treats. If I could move to Como permanently, I would want a home just like the Casa Margharita.
