We spent a lovely week in one of the apartments above Al Veluu ristorante. Cheryl and Luca were very accommodating and we enjoyed a delicious meal there...the stuffed zucchini were just divine! We hope to return one day! Ciao

We booked at these 'suites' (really nothing more than an average one-bedroom apartment above a restaurant) for late November. Imagine our abject disappointment in discovering the entire area WAS CLOSED for the winter over this period.
This surely should have been disclosed at the time of booking - this is after all marketed as a guest establishment. Why would anyone want to visit an area where no amenities are open and available?
You do yourselves and the local tourism industry discredit by not making patrons aware of this fact.
Please be aware too that the room is not serviced even although this is advertised as such on the website.
As for the 'suite' - pleasant enough but nowhere near the value for money that can be found elsewhere. Our previous hotel on this vacation was far less expensive and superior in every aspect.

AlVeluu, Owner at Al Veluu Suites, responded to this reviewResponded 10 December 2016

Dear Guest,
We are sorry to hear you did not enjoy the lake during the Winter season. All of our other guests that have stayed in Winter have come specifically to enjoy this quiet period during which time there are few other tourists and it is a time to relax and take in the beautiful panoramic landscapes. It is such a shame that it was a week of heavy rain which I am sure dampened your experience. Many places in the central lake do close as it is well known that Lake Como is a seasonal resort. I had informed you at the time of booking that our Hotel service of breakfast served in your suite with a daily maid was not available during the period and that the restaurant Al veluu is closed. You confirmed that you were happy to go ahead and take the suite on a self catering basis and all you were hoping for was a room with a spectacular view which is certainly what we have.
There were restaurants open nearby as mentioned two within a 5 minute walk and others within a 10 minute drive. I did also offer some itineraries for you which included visits to the two most important visitor attractions on the lake which were open, villa Carlotta and villa del Balbianello. Como town itself with the famous Cathedral within the pedestrian walled city has numerous shops and restaurants open year round if you are interested in some retail therapy with many small independent boutiques. If you would like to revisit lake como during the busy period I recommend visiting during the months of June through to September as then the lake is heaving with people and everywhere is open. We have reserved a special discount for you for your next stay with us. Please don't hesitate to contact me for any further assistance.
With kind regards

We had a delightful time. Wonderful food, zucchini blossoms for me figs for my husband, both fresh from their garden. Lamb chops for both, creme Brule to follow and the view over the lake was breath taking. This was our first night of a week long stay. We will be returning!

This is the place you want to take a trip to on a sunny day around como. If you travel with the car it is a wonderfull ride to tremezzo. Go there, enjoy the view and the delicious & fresh meals. I will definitely go there more often.
