Casa Galbiga is a classic lake-como villa , it goes back to the 18th century when it was a "coach stop" , afterwards it was bought by the family and went through modernisation. We have now completed the renovations and 2 lovely modern - but also furnished with family antiques - apartments each on one floor are ready. Please ask for a detailed description of the apartments, each sleeps 4 in two double rooms per apartment. The house is surrounded by a furnished garden with barbecue area , table tennis and the villa has a secluded charm as it lays sheltered in the garden on higher grounds. We have a jetty in front of the villa and motorboats for rent.
You can also rent cayacs and pedalò to enjoy the lake or take a tour of the Island. Casa Galbiga lies in the middle of the Green Way, a walking path that takes you along the lake and under the mountains shoulder from Colonno to Menaggio, for about 10 kms. Restaurants, supermarckets, banks, pharmacy and the ferry stop are maximum 15 minutes away through it.
From Casa Galbiga we suggest you to reach the Sacro Monte of Ossuccio, where the Sanctuary "Madonna del Soccorso" is a Unesco's treasure.

The Lake Como region
Lake como has a temperate climate as it is sheltered from northern winds by the alps. This makes is very pleasant in high summer, but also in winter when we have most of the time blue skies . Not being far from the high alps, guests like to visit lake como as they can combine days in the mountains for skiing and days of relax on the lake or visits to Milan, Lugano, and even Venice or Verona.
Como is already mentioned by the romans and most villages are still connected by a " roman road" a footpath which runs along the lake and has been in most places restored. It passes through alps, meadows and forests, with beautiful views over lake and mountains.
Ossuccio is situated between Como and Menaggio on the north-west shore of lake como and in front of the only Island " Isola Comacina" which is worthwhile visiting for its archeological sites. "Lucia" boats take you to the island. Ossuccio 's belltower is the most hystorical building of lake Como, which you can find on every postcard. Ossuccio is a well kept village with lovely shores, a nice beach-sunbathing area and lovely hills easy for walking or hiking up into the oliveyards and to churches and sanctuaries. for extensive shopping you depend on Lenno ( 1 km), Menaggio (8km) or Como ( 15 km)

"Very Nice Apartment but busy road"
We stayed at the second floor apartment for a week in August and found it to be of a very high standard. The apartment is set off of a busy road and can be a little noisy if you have the windows open. There is no air conditioning in the apartment and for the height of the summer we felt it could have done with some - otherwise you need windows open which equals lots of traffic noise. Having said The apartment is very large and has everything you would need for yoiur stay. It was furnished lovely and really was home from home. It is set in a small garden where there are sun loungers and a bbq area. The apartment is ideally situated for getting around - there is a bus stop just round the corner, along with a shop and post office. You can get to these easily avoiding the busy road at the back of the property. There is a wonderful walk which you can do called the Greenway and you can walk into Lenno and nearby restaurants ... most of the pathways are cobbles so take good walking shoes. You can hire free canoes across the road at the Marina. We enjoyed our stay very much and the owner Mino is lovely and on hand to help if need be. Would we return ... yes!

"très agréable séjour"
casa galbiga est une maison très fraiche et bien équipée. Nous y avons passé un séjour fort agréable. Le plus c'est la mise à disposition de canoés gratuitement pour les locataires et les conseils avisés de Mino. Casa Galbiga se situe sur une merveilleuse portion du lac.
