Holiday Rental House
Casa Lua has recently been completely renovated inside and outside by the owners Elena and Claudio taking into account bioarchitecture. It belonged since its constructions, at the beginning of 1800, to Claudio’s great great-granparents. Completely natural materials have been used and it is ideal for children, animals, or adults with hypersensitivities or allergies, expecially to chemical substances and electric fields (during the night the two bedrooms are isolated from electromagnatic fields). The interior has wooden floors, some angles with stones visible, the corridor with still the old 'Cotto lombardo' dated back to beginning of 1900, and with every comfort.

Completely natural materials have been used and it is ideal for children, animals, or adults with hypersensitivities or allergies, expecially to chemical substances and electric fields (during the night the two bedrooms are isolated from electromagnatic fields). The interior has wooden floors, some angles with stones visible, the corridor with still the old 'Cotto lombardo' dated back to beginning of 1900, and with every comfort. There is an independent entrance just 30 steps above the small road Via Regina and the apartment consists of: a covered terrace at the entrance where you can rest, 1 double bedroom, 2 single beds in case there are more than 2 people in the living room, 2 bathrooms (one with a big shower and the other with bathtub and washing machine), a fully equipped kitchen and a large living room with a fireplace, looking on the lake. A comfortable cot is available for children up to 4 years old. The house is surrounded by parks, gardens and a historical villa (Villa Italia) is just in front. Pets are welcome and stay for free, please take care that do not make any damage. Casa Lua is located on the Romantic Shore of Lake Como, 1,5 km from George Clooney’s villas. For our pet guests: a welcome pack will be prepared, with a soft bed, a clean blanket, bones, towel and bowls. One good restaurant (Fioroni) with typical plates is just 5 minutes on foot. A new good pizzeria with a big balcony overlooking the lake is 10 minutes walking above the lake, La finestra sul lago. Another very good one (Acquadolce) is 2 km away, in Urio. Another 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, an emporium selling journals and others and a bakery/minimarket. A minimarket (Donegana) with meat of their 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 cheese. A supermarket Bennet open every day is 10 minutes driving towards Como. Smoke is absolutely forbidden in all the house. As it is a residential and quiet location, please respect the silence hours from 11 pm to 7 am. 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,...). We can give you maps and all kinds of information. A surfboard with paddle is also available for you to enjoy the lake in front of the house. You can go biking by the lake, or try the steep trials or single tracks with your mountain bike. We can also suggest places where you can rent bikes. We have guides with trails for mtb on our mountains. You can go trekking all the year round, 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. The wild bush with deer is only 10 minutes on foot in the direction of the mountain. In about 20 minutes hiking it is still possible to see an abandoned quarry of local stone. Many exhibitions in the famous Villa Olmo and Villa Erba and festivals can be visited all the year round: ParoLario in July or September, OrticoLario in October, Lake Como Film Festival in July, 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. Just ask us for the details well in advance. Please let us know about your plans before your arrival so that we can prepare the material and information.
