A few steps from the lake, hidden in a quiet courtyard, it stands as a small tower of 95 sqm made of stones dating back to 1100. The interiors have kept the old flavor of crooked walls finished with lime and handmade stairs. The wooden balcony at the top allows to see the mountains above the roofs of the surrounding houses.
The entrance is on the first floor and opens into the characteristic kitchen, upstairs is the living room and the main bedroom with bathroom and balcony on the top floor.
It is the perfect holiday home for those who want everything at hand: on the ground floor there is a large cellar with vaulted stone, where clients can find a double canoe, 2 bikes, a stand-up paddle, beach loungers, equipment for swimming and for picnic. A small rowing boat is also available on request. Among other facilities, Casa Isola features free wi-fi, flat TV with satellite channels, Bose bluetooth speakers, washing machine and dishwasher, fully equipped kitchen, a free covered parking place, bed linens and bath towels.
Sala Comacina is about 25 minutes from the city of Como and overlooks one of the few bays of Lake Como. It rises right in front of the only island of the lake, Comacina Island, where every June takes place the most interesting local festival of faith and folklore and where you can have a drink at sunset at the bar ‘La Botte’ or eat at the very typical restaurant ‘Locanda dell’Isola Comacina’.
For those looking to stay away from the more commercial parts of the lake and have a taste of the lives of the locals, you will not be disappointed.
