Calm Peace at Lake Como

We had four open days in our schedule before our next house sitting assignment and we were trying to decide where to go.  We were torn between Liechtenstein and Lake Como, Italy.  I was hoping to get to Liechtenstein because it was one of my godfather’s favorite places when he did his European tour.  But in the end, we just didn’t want to leave Italy yet.  We love this country so much, it feels like home and we wanted to delay the separation as long as possible.  So we headed to the home of aristocrats, George Clooney (although I was oblivious to this fact until two friends told me) and a favorite landing place for those “old” European tours.

You would think that means it was expensive, right!?!  We found the cutest 2 bedroom, 1 bath apartment for $40 a night!  It has beautiful views of the lake (see picture above) and hosts have been wonderful.  As soon as we arrived we were invited into their personal home for espresso or a beer and told about nearby sights.

This is the third time we have used airbnb and we couldn’t be happier with the places we have stayed and the people we have met.  There are all prices ranges on airbnb and it is very easy to use, you even can charge everything to your credit card.

We are so happy with our choice to stay in Italy for a few more days.  Our plan…nothing!  Enjoying peace and quiet and calm together, on one of the most beautiful lakes in the world.
