Our apartment Casa Alba is located in the small, rustic mountain village of Livo, which is popular with tourists and Italians alike, above Gravedona ed Uniti, on the northwestern shore of Lake Como. 

The more than 300 year old stone house, which was once called Ca'Maddalenü, consists of two residential units. Our apartment Casa Alba is on the second floor. The rustico is at the top of the village, right on the edge of a chestnut grove. Like most buildings in Livo, the stone house has the characteristics of rural Comascus architecture. 

The accommodation is ideal for 2–3 people (2 p. + 1 p.). There is a cozy little double room with a bunk bed and another room with a single bed.In addition, of course, a bathroom with shower and toilet, an open living area with kitchen and a balcony with a fantastic view. The kitchen is fully equipped and offers the usual basic equipment for cooking and baking, a filter coffee machine, a tab coffee machine, a kettle and a toaster. There are two televisions in the accommodation: one in the kitchen-living room and one in the double room. An iron and ironing board are also provided and security is also ensured with a first aid kit, a fire extinguisher and fire alarms distributed around the apartment. 

From the balcony there is a spectacular view of the whole village.The parish church of San Giacomo, built in the 18th century, Lake Como and the village of Colico on the opposite shore, as well as the surrounding mountains, such as the Sasso Pelo on the right or the majestically enthroned Monte Legnone (2609 m) on the other side of the lake. 

The apartment is heated with a powerful pellet stove. It should be noted that additional heating costs may be incurred in the cold seasons or as a result of personal needs. We provide our guests with sufficient pellets during their stay. A 15 kg sack of pellets costs 6 euros. The consumption will be billed in cash on the day of departure. 

Small vehicles and vehicles with high chassis can park directly at Apartment Casa Alba. For large resp.Lowered carriages can be parked on the street below the house. 

Smoking and parties are not allowed in Casa Alba. 

From the apartment you can start wonderful smaller excursions as well as more demanding hiking tours in the sometimes wild and untouched nature of the local area. For example to Dangri, a very popular excursion destination with swimming in a cold, clear mountain stream and from there up into the mountains of Livo to Baggio or even further up to Lake Darengo. 

Not only nature lovers and hiking enthusiasts, but also friends of good taste will get their money's worth in Livo.Because in the center of the village is the bar-trattoria Sant'Anna, which is well-known beyond the borders of the region and well-attended at all times of the year. In addition to local dishes of consistently good quality, this one of the best pizzas on the Alto Lario can serve up. At the end of the well-traveled path to Dangri there is also the popular Crotto Dangri restaurant, where you can dine in a regional, rustic style amidst the pristine nature of the valley. 

For the daily need for breakfast rolls, cheese and sausage there is a small Alimentari, the Italian version of the corner shop, in Livo. In addition, there is a small market every Wednesday, consisting of 2-3 vendors of fresh fruit and vegetables as well as cheese and sausage products.

After Como, Livo is the municipality with the largest contiguous territory and was once important for its extensive pasture and livestock economy and known beyond the borders of Lake Como. Many of the facades in Livo still show their votive paintings from the 16th century as well as carved stone portals with the family coat of arms. Another marvelous parish church in Livo - San Giacomo Vecchia - is located just behind the village towards Dangri. San Giacomo Vecchia was first mentioned in writing in 1297. In addition to more than 20 images of the Virgin Mary with Child, this church houses a cycle of more than 400 years of frescoes, which is one of the most well-known in the region.

Due to the natural combination of mountains and lake, there are many opportunities to make your stay on site sporty and active. Water sports enthusiasts will find their happiness in and on the water of Lake Como, while summiteers and mountain bikers will happily conquer the many meters of altitude in the surrounding landscape. 

Livo is about 15 minutes from Gravedona ed Uniti, the closest place on the shores of Lake Como. Gravedona ed Uniti is not only one of the most picturesque places on the coast of northern Lake Como, but also has numerous cultural and art-historical sights to offer. In addition to this, there are also various shops, bars, restaurants, banks, shoe and jewelry stores as well as bakeries and café-patisseries.
