We are pleased to offer this 5 bedroom village house in a charming courtyard, located just 20 metres from the lake at Colonno, some 30 minutes north of Como town and less than an hour from Milan airports.

The house, which would benefit from modernisation, provides a spacious 120m2 of accommodation over 4 floors as well as a basement with further rooms. The mezzanine floor provides the entrance into a kitchen/living room and stairs then lead to the first floor with 2 bedrooms. Further stairs lead to the second floor with a further 2 bedrooms, one of which has a balcony overlooking the courtyard. The third floor contains a further bedroom and bathroom. To complete the property, on the ground floor which has its own separate entrance, there is a basement with 2 cellars and a bathroom with vaulted ceilings and a maximum height of 2 metres. This is a lovely property, which with a little modernisation could provide spacious accommodation some 20 metres from the lake, within walking distance of restaurants, bars and small store and post office. Excellent value and free parking less than 100 metres away.

Casa Travella was founded in 1987 when Linda & Pietro Travella saw an opportunity to offer Italian property for sale. At this time there were very few companies that offered any property for sale in Italy.   Now years later read some of their story.

The company is fronted by Linda Travella and Casa Travella started selling property on Lake Como, where Pietro was born and Linda has worked and lived. The company were able to offer advice on numerous properties and ongoing help with all aspects of the buying process. If a client wants to restore a property, then Casa Travella can source tradesmen and professionals in the area and help with every aspect of the transaction.

When the BBC were looking for someone to speak on BBC Breakfast News about European property Linda was chosen to appear live on the programme. Other TV and radio programmes followed including Radio 5 Live, and ‘I want that House’ with Mark Simpkins, where Linda appeared in 6 episodes, the last one being a live programme from Florida, where an Italian apartment was given away as a prize. Linda appeared for RTE, Irish TV and for Channel 4‘s ‘A Place in the Sun’, where she accompanied Amanda Lamb along the shores of Lake Como by boat, to show her some of the stunning villas, including the one owned by George Clooney.

The Casa Travella team are always pleased to help when clients want to buy or sell a property in Italy. The office is multilingual with English, Italian and Spanish being spoken.

Linda says: ‘I feel proud that we can offer property for sale in many areas of Italy and we are able to give clients independent and professional advice on areas and types of property to suit their budget and needs.’

The Casa Travella team look forward to helping you buy or sell your Italian home.
