Thank you for your feedback and positive comments. I am glad that you all enjoyed your stay. We had asked the cleaners to put the heating on for you the day before - we are very sorry for the oversight if they forgot to do so! I am pleased that the sun shone for you. We have had some wonderful weather here since Spring. Today (May 10th), it is 27 degrees! Hopefully we will see you again on Lake Como.

Thank you for taking the time to provide your feedback on your recent stay at our apartment. We are the owners of the apartment and take all feedback very seriously, as we want our guests to enjoy our apartment, Laglio and the Lake as much as we do.
I am pleased that you enjoyed the ‘stunning views’ from the apartment and that you did have an enjoyable holiday.
You mention in your feed back that you did feel the apartment was ‘very nice’ but not luxurious unless ‘ you like everything from ikea’. I do feel that this is very unfair feedback and is completely out of character from the very positive reviews we have received to date.
Granted the cutlery and crockery are from Ikea as we have found over time this is the only practical solution with items being broken or going missing.
I do not however feel your comments provide a true reflection of the apartment. Without going through a full specification, both bathrooms are fully kitted out with the highest possible Italian designed fittings, showers etc GSI Losangna. The fitted kitchen is an Italian designed contemporary kitchen.
The lounge with the stunning views you mention benefits from a top of the range 6 meter modular corner Poliform sofa along with a Poliform Coffee table and mirror. The lighting is by Foscarini.
Poliform have an outlet in the UK on Kings Road near Sloane Square if you wish to see where these products are positioned in the ‘luxury market’.
It is fair to say that the apartment was set up and planned in a contemporary luxury manner not ‘chintzy’ to suit the position it has looking over the lake.
Your comments regarding the hanging spaces suggest that they are ‘missing doors’. They are modern hanging spaces not ’fitted wardrobes’ and were chosen specifically to suit the apartment.
You mention the bedding was badly fitted and not luxurious. I hand delivered to the apartment 3 sets of brand new bedding 100% egyptian cotton only 2 weeks prior to your visit.
Although you suggested Cinzia mentioned there is a problem with the power when the washing machine and oven are on this is not the case. It is well known in Italy and around the lake that when there are two many items on in a home that the electric can trip out. Cinzia advised you, as she does when she meets all guests, of this at the commencement of your stay and if it does happen the switch in the apartment just needs to be put back on for everything to work smoothly again. There are also instructions left in the home in the event of the electric cutting out to this effect.
Barrie and Cinzia who manage the apartment for us tell me that they gave you their mobile phones and asked you to call them if you had any problems during your stay. Cinzia pointed out the file which provides information about things to do on the lake and whilst providing a bottle of wine to enjoy whilst reading this information. Cinzia or Barrie are available for all guests seven days a week by phone or internet, the later which is installed free of charge in the home.
Both Cinzia and Barrie have lived on the lake for many years and know the area inside out and are happy to impart their knowledge of what to see, where to eat
and how to explore the lake from a locals perspective to give you an insiders view of the area. We also send guests extensive information of the area with each
booking confirmation as we feel staying in a holiday home provides you the opportunity to sample life as the locals do to help ensure you get the most from your stay.
The Satelite TV does have numerous Italian channels as well as selected English tv channels.
Finally,you mention that Laglio is a quiet place with only a few shops and no restaurants. Yes, Laglio is a quiet place and that is how the both local residents and we like it. We chose to purchase a home in this area as it is far removed from the more touristy villages such as Bellagio and Menaggio.
The shops here in Laglio, although small ,include a general store, an award winning delicatese/butcher, postoffice/newsagent, weekly fresh fruit and vegetable market stall. There are two very nice local restaurants in the village and too numerous to mention close by.
It is a pleasure to be sat overlooking the lake and all you can hear are the church bells in the distance, or the hum of a speedboat or seaplane.
To quote a Daily telegraph article on 15 May 2013 about the lake “ The Millionaires row runs through Laglio and Carate Urio and is as quiet as a Mayfair Street and just as expensive ’
I do hope this reply addresses some of your comments raised to provide balanced feedback for yourself and future guests seeking an authentic lake experience we strive to provide.
