The Lombardy region

Lake Como has been famous and popular for centuries, due to its unrivalled beauty. It is still popular today for many more reasons: It is within striking distance of many interesting places - Milan, Monza, St Moritz and Lugano, to name just a few. It offers something for every type of holidaymaker from the sporty to chill-out to culture-vulture with water sports, golf, horse-riding, stunning villas and historic churches, shopping to die for (ask for our designer outlet guide), wine tastings, gourmet restaurants and some of the best pizzas you will ever taste at only €4 for a pizza margarita, you can't go wrong! It is also home to the island of Comacina and one of the most famous restaurants on the Lake, visited by everyone from Eisenhower to Clooney.

Sala Comacina

Sala Comacina is a popular village on the western shore of Lake Como, about 25 minutes from Como town and 60 minutes from Milan Malpensa. It is well served by public transport with both bus and ferry stops.

There is a picturesque lakeside piazza from where you can hop on a romantic water taxi for the short trip to the only island on the lake (Isola Comacina and the famous restaurant 'La Locanda del Isola'). There is a good choice of restaurants for such a small village:

La Tirlindana, located in the lakeside piazza in THE most romantic setting overlooking the island

La Comacina with a panoramic balcony overlooking the lake & the island

Taverna Blu - lakeside setting with atmospheric garden

ProLoco - a relaxed location for light snacks and pizzas right by the lakeside and of course the world-famous Locanda del Isola, on the island itself.

There is a small store, a weekly market, post office, bank and butchers. There is also a small local beach.

Catch a ferry to the rest of the lake or hop across to the island.

"Stunning views and great location in beautifully presented apartment"

We had a wonderful stay here last week in glorious weather. The views are breathtaking from the apartment over the lake - the balcony and terrace make the most of them. We had beautiful sunsets in the evenings over supper and lovely breakfasts al fresco. The apartment itself is fresh and modern and good for our needs with 2 small children (cot provided). There were six of us and space would have been tight if the weather had been bad but not an issue for us. The owners seem to take great care of everything and have left lots of info for guests.

Sala Comacina is a great location with some excellent local restaurants (including the Isola Comacina experience on the island opposite) but also a good base for day trips to Como, Lenno, Bellagio, Menaggio etc). The apartment is up a very steep hill and as there are very few pavements in the area we would have found the holiday quite difficult without a hire car so we would definitely recommend this.

We are so glad that you enjoyed your stay. We do everything we can to ensure that our guests enjoy their time on Lake Como. We look forward to welcoming you again to this beautiful Lake in the near future.

"Breathtaking views, great apartment, beautiful town"

The apartment is as good as the pictures look. The terrace is amazing and it is all so quiet, peaceful and with dramatic views. The town Sala Comacina is really beautiful and has a couple of great restaurants, including a really good restaurant on the island just off the shore of Sala Comacina. The apartment is also right next to a beautiful walking track where you can meander through old villages and enjoy great views.
The apartment is clean, comfortable and the agents were great. It is set back from the village up the hill, so it helps to be a bit healthy to get up and down the hill, but its not too bad. The village is ideally located and you will have a great stay

We are so glad that you enjoyed your stay. We do everything we can to ensure that our guests enjoy their time on Lake Como. We look forward to welcoming you again to this beautiful Lake in the near future.

"Perfect stay"

We have stayed in Vista Isola Penthouse in May 2014 - 3 x couples.
Overall we had absolutely amazing time.
- villas was beautiful, and views were breath taking (amazing views from terrace and balcony)
- apartment was very modern and well equipped (everything that you could think of was there )
- stunning location ( bakery shop, butcher, 3 restaurants, bar), only 30min walk to large supermarket, perfect walks - green way tourist route just on your door step
- shared swimming pool – was a perfect treat after a long day (we have not seen anyone else, therefore pool felt like our own one  )
- views were just gorgeous

Thank you once again for a lovely stay

We had a great time at The Isola Penthouse - lots of fun in and out of the pool. The penthouse terrace was amazing - we saw shooting stars at night and it has that Wow factor. Beverley was brilliant a… More

"A beautiful setting"

Six of us stayed for a week in the penthouse apartment. It is very clean, modern and has everything you need for self-catering. There was plenty of room for us all, though I think you would be cramped… More

I am so glad that you all enjoyed your stay. The weather was incredibly hot. It is quite unusual to get 30 degrees - it was a real heat wave for the whole month! Very few properties on Lake Como have air conditioning as yet. The lake breezes are usually enough to keep you cool, along with a fan, maybe for 3 nights at the peak of the August heat. Lucky you had the pool to cool off in during the day. Hope to see you again next year. thank you for your review.

"Superb!"

We stayed here with friends at the beginning of September and the apartment exceeded our expectations in every way! The views of the lake are simply stunning; the apartment itself is brand new, fully equipped,and tastefully decorated with furnishing that is both comfortable and stylish. The large terrace is a real bonus, fantastic for sunbathing, dining, barbecuing or just taking in the breathtaking views. Sala Comacina is perfectly located within easy reach of Argegno, Lenno, Tremezzo We thoroughly recommend a ferry trip from Tremezzo to Bellagio and an evening ferry trip from Sala itself to the Island of Comacino. A meal at the restaurant there is a unique experience-not cheap ( approx 65 Euros per head)- but the 5 course meal is delicious and the quirky coffee ceremony at the end makes for a great occasion. All in all the the apartment proved to be a great find and the perfect place to stay!

"Picturesque apartment - you won't want to leave"

This apartment was easy to book and to access via hire car. The pictures really don't do the place justice - the apartment and the view are absolutely stunning and must be experienced first hand! Even though there were a few days of rain, the apartment allowed a cosy place to relax with free sat, blue ray DVD player and iPod docking station. The roof terrace provided the best location to sun bathe, and the smaller balcony was perfect for breakfast and mid-morning coffee as it catches the morning sun. The apartment is close to restaurants, shops and a water taxi to Isola Comacina - the only island in the middle of Lake Como and home to a delicious 5 course meal since 1947. The beautiful villages of Lenno and Argegno are nearby for exploring. This is the perfect place for a romantic getaway or a family holiday and I can't wait to return!

"You'll love it - very little not to like"

Overall, this is a wonderful vacation apartment for a relaxing week enjoying the sumptuous view over the lake. The roof terrace is a gem. The apartment is brand new, so it's spotlessly clean and … More
