“Good stay in wonderful Como”
Reviewed 12 October 2013 for a stay in September 2013

Como is spectacular, even in the rain! Gigliola greeted us and showed us around the apartment. She was available to give us information about the town and events. The location of the apartment is very good, a quick walk to the centre of town. The apartment is comfortable but I think the website needs updating. We booked as 3 ladies, thinking as per the website that there would be 2 single beds in the 2nd bedroom. This was not the case and it was suggested that 2 ladies share the double bed. We quickly assisted Gigliola to make up the sofa bed in the lounge room (apparently the first time to be used which seemed a bit surprising)! The single bed that was in the 2nd bedroom proved very narrow and we placed the mattress on the floor. The doors were also a problem, with few of them closing, including the one leading out onto the balcony from the 2nd bedroom. We had to lock the external shutters for security, therefore blocking the light. The "log fire" as advertised was non existent. I disagree with the website saying "Suitable for people with restricted mobility" as there was an uphill walk, followed by steps to the apartment. Also the church bells (followed by tune), although novel, did start at 7.30 am which was a bit annoying when we wanted a rest after lots of sightseeing. Just small observations, but perhaps important to some. All in all we loved Como and hope to return one day.

Dear Ladies
thank you for your visit, I am glad you enjoyed Como and its Lake.
Also, I'd like to confirm that our apartment has a room with a double bed and a room with 2 confortable single beds , whose measure is 95 x 200 each,
A sofa bed ( as you said brand new) is also available in the living area so that the apartment is a very confortable one for those who look for privacy, as you were, even when travelling together.
Centrally located in the historical part of Como downtown though easly to be reached our apartment is also very suitable for peole with disabilities ( not wheelchair )
Best wishes

“The perfect place to stay in Como”
Reviewed 2 October 2013 for a stay in September 2013

Gigliola and Adriano are friendly, gracious hosts who make you feel welcome immediately. And they offer tips on concerts, restaurants and local activities that would be hard to find otherwise. The apartment is very comfy, very lovely with older pieces of furniture, paintings, and textiles from India and it is incredibly well
equipped for cooking. We stayed with our daughter and teenage grandson - plenty of room for all. The church bells are charming - playing a "wakeup" song in the morning (not too early) and a "goodnight" one at night. Shopping was handy and easy thanks to the info provided. Thank you Gigliola and Adriano - you made our stay in Como perfect!

“The perfect home away from home”
Reviewed 29 September 2013 for a stay in September 2013

I loved everything about this stay. The owners meet you on arrival.
The apartment is well stocked with lots of wonderful little extras.
The location is fairly quiet(apart from the odd bark from the dog across the street and the wonderful chiming church bells). Your not far from anything, but you will have to walk up a little hill which might only be a problem if you are staggering home wearing high heels or carrying too many bottles of wine and bags of local produce.
The supermarkets stock a great selection of produce and we found the meats and cheeses from the deli's superb.
I was travelling with my parents who are in thier late 60's and they immediately felt at home here. We stayed for 5 nights and I could have easily stayed for 5 weeks...in fact 5 months...This was the perfect place to relax and enjoy Lake Como's many villages, wonderful shopping and really good food.
Getting around the lake is very easy and affordable on the many boats that run all day and into the evening...so a visit to Bellagio for lunch and boutique shopping is very easy and enjoyable. The funicular Railway up to Brunate is a must, but allow plenty of time as there is quite a lot to do and see once your up there. Great walking and hiking too if your not into just dining and shopping.
Highly recomend both this apartment and a trip to Como to explore this great location.

“Wonderful apartment”
Reviewed 14 September 2013 for a stay in September 2013

This genuinely is a wonderfully welcoming place.
Adriano & Gigliola are very, very friendly and can't do enough to make your stay as happy as possible.
The apartment is situated in a lovely quiet part of Como and is very spacious with everything you could possibly need, fully equipped large kitchen, nice spacious sitting room, wifi etc. The courtyard garden is a lovely place to relax with a glass of wine in the evening after another hot, sunny day in Como (it was scorching hot while we were there).
You couldn't find fault here if you tried.
I would recommend Casa Margherita 2 to anyone without reservation.

We were pleasantly surprised by the size, furnishings and facilities here. Our hosts were welcoming and provided plenty of local information. The apartment had everything you could need including well equipped kitchen, washing machine and 2 pushbikes. We recommend this apartment to other travellers.
