“A wonderful, unique place to stay with helpful, caring hosts.”
Reviewed 22 June 2016 for a stay in June 2016

Casa Lua is no ordinary rental place, it is something quite special. The apartment is recently refurbished with a high standard of furnishing and decor. A lot of thought and care has gone into creating this lovely apartment by the owners, Elena & Claudio, with a lot of attention to detail to ensure that everything is provided for guests.

We stayed here for a few nights whilst attending a family members wedding and were delighted with our accommodation. Elena and Claudio were extremely helpful with information. I particularly loved sitting by the lounge balcony looking over the lake and listening to the gentle lap of the lake waters.

I could not recommend this place highly enough.

“Haven of peace”
Reviewed 12 May 2016 for a stay in April 2016

We stayed at Casa Lua with our two daughters for 4 nights and it was one of our memorable traveling experience imaginable. Elena and Claudio are super responsive and reachable to all our needs and helped with great tips on the area. I spent a lot of time looking for an authentic place near the lake and not a "tacky" tourist oriented place so that we would really feel Como unique atmosphere and couldn't ask for better. The house is wide with a privacy for the parents room and a top floor for the kids and just incredibly worm and soothing, you can hear the lake waves crushing slowly from the leaving room and watch the beautiful view from the window (the last night was a bit rainy and in the morning the hills peaks were snowy white..). All the facilities were super clean, the bathrooms are wide and comfortable and the public parking is 50m away (for people with disabilities the stairs to the house might be hard to clime) from the house and was always vacant (we were traveling in early May, a bit off season though). We find Carate Urio as one of the most calm and beautiful villages on the lake. Have only praises...

“Great apartment, Excellent location, Wonderful host”
Reviewed 13 March 2016 for a stay in March 2016

Casa Lua in Lake Como is a great place for a classic Italian vacation. The location is on the lake with access to the water, view to the lake from the apartment and very well organized hosts which take care of their apartment and their guests beautifully.
Elena and Claudio made sure to tip us on all local restaurants, supermarkets, weather and places to visit around town. They provided us with wood for the fireplace that made the whole stay worm and pleasant, went and got a baby bed (especially for us) and even bought baby shampoo (the best kind). Their kindness and will to help is definitely worth mentioning.
The apartment itself is comfortable, spacious, very clean (extremely clean, really), very quiet and has great light. Claudio and Elena, which made many of the things by themselves, have put a lot of thought, together with great style and taste, and made the place cosy, friendly and meets all needs.

“Great appartement with lake view and nice hosts!”
Reviewed 28 October 2015 for a stay in October 2015

Casa Lua is located directly at Lake Como and newly renovated. The cute appartment is tastefully furnished and very comfortable.

The kitchen is fully equipped, there is a fireplace and a pizza-oven which saved our rainy days. The bathrooms come with a comfortable shower and a huge bathtub.

Both the hosts, Elena and Claudio, spared no efforts to make our stay pleasant and comfortable. They provided us with recommendations for day-trips, restaurants and shops and even parlour games and DVDs for the children. Upon our arrival there was a basket filled with local wine, crackers and cookies welcoming us.

We enjoyed our stay a lot and will be back!

“Beautiful apartment and excellent hosts - we'll be back!”
Reviewed 28 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

Casa Lua is a beautiful, newly renovated and extremely well-equipped apartment on the shores of Lake Como. Clearly a lot of love has gone into the renovation, and every detail has been well considered. Knowing that the conversion was environmentally friendly was a bonus.

Elena and Claudio were excellent hosts, going above and beyond to cater for our every need. We arrived to find a bottle of prosecco, fresh fruit and chocolate on the table; when the temperature dropped unexpectedly they came over to set the heating and drop off a pile of scarves, coats and cardigans; and Elena even offered me a lift to a supermarket in Como when I found the local shop closed one afternoon. Elena's English is excellent and she was extremely communicative during our stay. Being local, her and Claudio have bucket loads of knowledge of the area and are very happy to make recommendations.

One note on the location - my family and I have visited Carate Urio every year for several years now, and never once hired a car. Carate Urio is a quiet village, but local restaurants and amenities are good, and it is perfectly possible to get around via a combination of ferries, buses and the odd taxi later in the evening. All the major towns and attractions of the lake are within easy reach.

Highly recommended. Thank you both!
