About us

Hello and welcome to Lake Como – Holiday Heaven!  We are a British family of three generations, who have a holiday home in Acquaseria, San Siro, on the western shore of Lake Como.  We fell in love with the area when two of us were living and working in Milan a few years ago. When we had to leave to go back to the UK, we bought a run-down village house and renovated it completely over a period of three years.  Now we come over several times a year.  We are a pretty typical family, not particularly well-off, and we know how important it is to get value for your holiday euro.  We believe that holidays should be about joy and relaxation, about letting yourself just be. So often we’ve spent the first half of a precious holiday just finding out where everything is and how it all works – it can be quite stressful making sure that everybody is happy and gets what they want from the stay.  Allow us to take the stress away, with our guide to what is best in this wonderful area.

We believe that you can have a great holiday on a budget.  You don’t even need to hire a car, if you are prepared to plan a little and think of public transport as part of the fun and a great way to see the sights.  You get a better view, and you don’t have to worry about parking!

We also believe that you don’t need to dash around seeing everything all in one go.  Wherever you are staying, there are wonderful sights, places to eat, things to do, hill walks, and above all, the stupendous lake to enjoy, nestled in the mountains, that always lift the spirits every time you look up.

So this site is designed around the idea that you can base your holiday on the village or town you are staying in on the Lake.  We give you key up-to-date information and hints on the best places to eat, shop and enjoy yourselves.  If you need help planning your stay, whether for a weekend, a week or a month, drop us an email to lakecomohh@gmail.com and we’ll be happy to discuss our custom itinerary service with you.
