We stayed in the Faggeto Fantastico for more than a week during our trip to Lake Como in October 2019 and Milan. In the end we can say, we were more than happy with the accommodation.

On our visit to Lake Como, we’ve spent a lot of time inside because were unlucky with the weather. But with this, we had much time to enjoy the comfort and the coziness of the apartment. This made it easy for us to have a good time in Lombardy even though it rained a lot.

The WiFi is working very good, which makes it attractive for working in the apartment or streaming movies in the evening.

Heating and air circulation

The weather at Lake Como might also get cold early and late in the year. Therefore, the apartment is equipped with a heating system throughout all rooms.
For added comfort, a fan, an electric fan heater, and a dehumidifier are provided on top.


In the living room of Faggeto Fantastico, you’ll find a Smart TV with a soundbar, a Blue-Ray & DVD player, and several USB outlets to enable device connectivity.

Even Netflix was usable during our stay (which apparently was quite important on rainy days).

Numerous DVDs, books, and a selection of games are available as well.
