Appartamento Portico offers a romantic hideaway on the premier western shore of Lake Como.
Extending over two levels, Portico is situated just a hop, step and a jump from the shores of Lake Como and directly opposite the lake’s only island, Isola Comacina where sheltered by the island, Sala is known for its unique micro-climate and year-round ambiance for relaxation and site-seeing convenience.
On the ground entry-floor, Appartamento Portico offers a modern kitchen with the option of a small sofa. The master bedroom and bathroom with basin, shower, toilet and bidet are on the first floor and accessed via an internal spiral staircase.
The ‘portico’ of the building (with just one other apartment above), provides a secluded spot for sitting and relaxing with direct views of the lake and just a steps from La Tirlindana restaurant for 'al-fresco' dining.
Sala Comacina offers an experience to enjoy Italian village life with every convenience close at hand: village bakery (with grocery supplies), butcher, three café/bars, three restaurants open year-round, two more in summer, bank with Bancomat (ATM), post office, and village church; all within 200 metres of Portico.
The community of Sala also provides a beach with enclosed swimming area set into the lake just 300 metres from Portico via quaint alleyways down from Bar Romano on Via Rocco.
Just outside, Piazza Aprile XXV provides access to arrive and unload luggage by car and free parking is provided in the village precinct, although a car is unnecessary to enjoy the sites of Lake Como with water taxi, regular seasonal lake ferry service, and bus service (C10) readily available.
