Hi, I bought an apartment on the lake como near Varenna. I want to furnish the apartment, change the floor and i need to buy a kitchen. what is the cheapest way to organise all these while im not in italy? are there any agencys which can do that? i got a quotation from the real estate where we bought the apartment but it was very very high price they ask for.  I dont need expensive designer kitchen and furnisher, we will use it as an holiday apartment.

Hi Sandra,
I will be in the area very often supervising a building site in SanSiro (on other side of the lake). Happy to give you a quote, if you send me more details of the work required.
Contact me on info@rinovaprojects.com and we can take it from there.

Hi SandraI have a holiday home across the lake from you and did a  total renovation and also bought every stick off furniture and crockery etc for it. I furnished it simply - please go on Trip Advisor and search for a Villa Casa Fontana in Carate Urio -  I am over regularly and would happily help advise you for a dinner voucher or two depending on the amount of time you might need. I also have a very good local Italian friend who helped me organise deliveries, tradesmen etc etc. She is a great girl and maybe interested to help, her rates are really reasonable and she likes a job done properly!Let me know if we can help kind regards Helen

Hi Helen, Wow ur Villa is really breathtaking beautiful. If I would have seen it before we bought ours, I would definitely book it, good job. Do u have an private e mail to contact u? Nice regards Sandra 

Hi Sandra
We are project managing a small renovation projection in Perledo just above you at the moment for a family from Switzerland. If you'd like you could come and see this in progress and see the quality of the work. We offer fixed fee quotes - so no surprises afterwards! Whoever you choose, I'd really suggest that you ask for a fixed fee. It's not that usual in Italy, but we deal with lots of international clients and know that's what they want!

or if you'd like to email us at info@lakecomoconcepts.com we can send across projects we are currently performing - cottage renovation in Argegno, lakefront villa at Faggeto, re-modernisation of small villa in Perledo plus permissions for a pool. This last one is easy for you to see, but you are more than welcome to see the others too!
