Casa Rossa is brilliant. All rooms - sleeping and living - are spacious and tastefully decorated. The kitchen is well-stocked and has modern appliances. And then there's "the deck" with its incredible views. We spent many an hour taking in the natural beauty from that perch; each time of the day offered something totally different to marvel at.
Acquaseria was a perfect town for us. A slower pace than Menaggio and the other triangle towns - yet within really quick driving distance. There's a local friendly feel and some nice hiking opportunities nearby.
Dawn (owner) was SO great to deal with at every step of the way. Her instructions were thorough / perfect, recommendations on point, and responses consistently timely.
We chose Casa Rossa because of the excellent ratings for Dawn and the property. I have no hesitation in adding my Excellemt rating to the collection.
Overlooking the lake in San Siro, the apartment is well equipped for four people. Enjoyed breakfasting on the balcony each morning. Nearby towns are also worth exploring by car or ferry. Two good restaurants within walking distance. As we are in our seventies, accessing the apartment from the car ( about three minutes walk, parts over cobbles and up steps) with our suitcases was a challenge and we were fortunate to meet a neighbour who kindly helped us. On leaving we had to manage by ourselves. - not so easy. Highly recommended for able bodied. Still we thoroughly enjoyed our stay.
Absolutely fantastic stay in Acquaseria in this beautiful part of Italy. The views are just as shown, a full view overlooking Lake Como in a quiet residential area but still has a few good bars, restaurants, greengrocer shops and the local bottega has a good pinot nero to enjoy!
A great base location for Mennaggio and Bellagio, a bit longer for Como itself on the roads heading south.
The property itself has everything you need for a great week, and was clean and tidy on arrival. A large lockable garage is close nearby if you are out of luck with the free car park.
Dawn provides plenty of local information which was extremely useful, and was very helpful and available to contact whilst we were out there.
Thanks again for a fantastic week relaxing on the veranda.
The view of Lake Como from the balcony of this lovely apartment is fantastic.
The apartment is deceptively spacious and very comfortable which was great for the 4 of us on a couple of days of torrential rain and thunderstorms. Casa Rossa is very well equipped, even down to the electric kettle for Brits who love their tea! We also appreciated having use of the garage for our hire car as parking is difficult in high season.
The location is good, close to Menaggio, but the village of Acquaseria has good basic shops and restaurants. We enjoyed restaurant Creme Caramel down by the lake.
We had a thoroughly fantastic week in Casa Rossa and would highly recommend as a place to stay.
A lovely comfortable home from home in a quiet location, with the most stunning view we have ever seen. The house has everything you need but the biggest plus is the balcony which looks out over the lake. It is just a short walk to the village where you'll find a really excellent greengrocer and a must-visit wine shop. There are also a couple of restaurants (we recommend Da Luigi), a friendly café which does great gelato and pastries; for other items there is a very good Conad supermarket in nearby Menaggio. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would highly recommend Casa Rossa.
A deceptively spacious home on two floors with balcony for relaxing and enjoying the stunning view. Can't wait to visit Casa Rossa again and enjoy time on, around and over-looking the Lake! Thank you for a wonderful Easter break.
First time visiting lake Como, which is fantastic. Casa Rossa is just perfect. Location ideal, typical local village, minutes to lakeside. However, the view from the property is just incredible. The picture looks good online but being there is something special. The accommodation was spotless and very much more spacious than we expected. Best of all - the owner was so helpful from start to finish and in our opinion provides all help and assistance you need to make the holiday perfect. Thank you and we will hopefully return very soon.
