Thank you Risto for your review.
The public parking at 50 metres can be full during the day on hot weekends as it is in front of a marina and used by boat owners. Furthermore there are many turists visiting the lake on weekends.

“Beautiful house in a beautiful location”

We had a fantastic holiday in this lovingly restored Italian house overlooking the lake. Elena and Claudio are delightful people who made us and our dog very welcome. Carate Urio is a peaceful village set by the lake, but the stylish Como is a few miles away. Do stay in this wonderful house!

We stayed in case lua in October 16, 2 couples, we were made feel very welcome by Elena and Claudio. The house is beautifully restored to a very high standard, Elena has though of everything, down to the smallest detail! You really have a lake view, the area is really nice and peaceful, carate uiro is a very small village on the lake shore, but has a shop nearby, and a couple of restaurants, I recommend hiring a car as the publicb transport is not great nearby and you will need a sat nav to find the place in the first place!, there is a boat stop within walking distance, which goes into como, but you will need to travel 10/15 minutes to get the boats that cross the lake etc. There are some nice small towns along the lake shore in easy driving distance with nice resteurants. We enjoyed our short stay in lake como,the scenery is fabulous. I can gladly reccomend casa lua,as a great place to stay, elen.a. and Claudio great hosts, we were delighted with the way they kept in touch with us,and were very helpful, I give casa lua 10 out of 10!!

I was very fortunate to stay at Casa Lua with two friends for a weekend and it was beautiful! Elena and Claudio made sure we had everything we could ever need and very kind and gracious hosts. We spent the days taking the ferries around to different villages and the apartment was extremely close to the shore and boat launch for the ferry. (About a 10-15 minute walk.) We had a small balcony right from the bedroom that overlooked the lake, private bathroom and kitchen. The building is gorgeous and everything was immaculately clean and accessible. It's a lovely, quiet area and there's a little spot right down from the steps were we sat and dipped our toes in the lake. Elena and Claudio helped us to plan our time and told us where best to eat, visit, and how to make sure we saw the 'real' Lake Como. It really was one of my absolute favorite stays while in Italy. I absolutely recommend booking at Casa Lua if you plan to visit Carate Urio or any of the surrounding villages of Lake Como.

Reviewed 8 November 2016 for a stay in July 2016

We spent 3 days at Casa Lua in July 16 having travelled to Lake Como for a family wedding. The apartment is fabulous and fully equipped for every eventuality. It is comfortable,spacious and easily accommodated the 4 of us. The apartment overlooks the lake. It has approx 30 steps up to the entrance which appears to be a lot less than others we saw but might not suit anyone with impaired mobility. I think that this is mentioned on Trip Advisor anyway. The area around the apartment is quiet. It takes about a half hr by bus to Como. Elena was a pleasure to deal with from start to finish. She went out of her way to help and advise us on buses, taxis etc so thank you Elena and well done on your fabulous 'Casa Lua' !

“Beautiful apartment with stunning view!”
Reviewed 5 August 2016 for a stay in June 2016

My boyfriend and I stayed here for just two nights in June as we travelled around Italy. Elena and her partner were so welcoming and provided everything we needed including recommendations and links to the boat timetable. Beautiful apartment and just wait until you enter the lounge and see the view that awaits you! Would highly recommend Casa Lua.

“Where else?”
Reviewed 25 July 2016 for a stay in July 2016

We just returned from a two week stay at Casa Lua. The apartment has been beautifully renovated, furnished and equipped with love and taste. As a matter of fact, we could have done with half the luggage because Elena and Claudio provided for everything, including a cushion bed and panda bear soft toy for Thara our dog! The sound of waves breaking on the shore of the "private beach" was wonderfully calming. Carate Urio is far away from the crowds of Como and surroundings and yet easily reachable by car and public transport, be it busses or boats. Public transport, restaurants, coffee shop and convenience stores are within walking distance but beware, walking often means step climbing! Elena and Claudio were extremely helpful and played a big part in making our holidays so pleasant: thanks to them, we knew where to go trekking to see wild horses and a top favorite for the kids, they gave us contact details of a rental boat company which brought us the boat almost to our doorsteps. We rented the boat for an entire afternoon and went swimming in front of George Clooney's villa (a short walk away from Casa Lua). Speaking of the actor and Casa Lua, he would be spot on for saying "Where else?".... .
Thank you Elena and Claudio and ci vediamo.
