Residence Le Azalee is a new and modern small holiday village with 9 apartments, all of which are nicely decorated and have lovely terraces with breathtaking views of Lake Como. They share the lovely pool on the rooftop with a great lake view.
Here you stay in an elevated position on the hillside approx. 500 metres from Le Azalee village, where there is a pizzeria, a small bakery and a bar. The nearest larger town of Domaso is approx. 1700 metres away and offers you more choice in terms of shops, supermarkets, bars, plenty of restaurants and a charming harbour. You can also find a small pebble beach here if you want to swim in the lake. There is a walking trail that you can take to get to town, which is shorter than the road way, but be prepared for some steep steps.

The 9 modern apartments are located in a building on three floors and all have lovely terraces with a table and chairs and not least dazzling lake views. The apartments are tastefully decorated with good materials and are virtually identical except for variations in colour. As the building is located up the slopes, you should be prepared for steeps steps up from the car park and then to the pool.

Residence La Azalee is fantastically located with a wonderful view. The apartments are of a very good standard. There's nice and clean, and you get a heartfelt welcome. You shouldn't count on cooking a lot yourselves every day, since the kitchenware is insufficient, but for simple dishes you can manage. The surroundings make up for this though.
There's paths up and down the mountain and you get some beautiful experiences, walking along the paths. We were so lucky, there was an opera at the other side of Lake Como, which we could hear. It was a very special experience, sitting a warm evening and gazing out over the lake with the towns shining like beads on a string, while you're listening to opera. Fantastic!!!
It was completely as we expected and as it was described by In-Italia.
Nice apartment with a lovely view of the lake and mountains from the balcony.
Very clean and well functioning, but as expected the kitchen was not well equipped. We had knives and scissors from home, which was good, because there were only tableware and a few other things. A casserole, for example, would've been nice. On the other hand we got Hotelmutter buy a toaster and although it was a toaster we wanted, it was nice service. (For gluten-free bread).
The staff were overall sweet and service minded.
Wi-Fi did not work the first week and they regretted it a lot and we had to use their private net by their home instead.
The pool is very small, but nice nevertheless, as it was very hot while we were there.
There is some noise from local traffic up / down the mountain, from dogs barking and from watercraft on the lake.
We also "enjoyed "a 4-day local music event in Domaso, with very loud music several evenings.
We missed air conditioning or ceiling fans, but it is reportedly rare that is as hot as this year.
The drive to the parking lots is very steep and worn and several were challenged here.
