Rustic Village Casa in Lakeside Idyll
Rustic Village Casa in Lakeside Idyll

Like dazzling jewels, the towns of Como, Tremezzo, Menaggio, and Bellagio sparkle along the shores of Lake Como, where also glitters a hidden gem, Sala Comacina.

Here in this lakeside-idyll steeped in ancient Roman history stands Casa Matra Ponto, the ideal getaway offering space and comfort for six or romantic hideaway for two.


Casa Matra Ponto's beautifully realised rustic charm, created by combining two houses each over 300 years old, extends over three levels and is accentuated in the homely kitchen. In the upstairs bedrooms antique furnishings and quality bedding with white starched linens provide a restful ambiance. The master bedroom includes a small adjoining sitting area, and a balcony.

- Air-conditioning for your added comfort

With its thick walls and double-glazing Matra Ponto may be kept cooler if windows are closed and shuttered during the day; and for your added comfort we provide a free-standing air conditioner in the kitchen and sitting room area, and box-fans to circulate air in the bedrooms.

Sheltered by the only island in Lake Como 'Isola Comacina', Sala as the village is known locally - the 'salon' of the lake, enjoys a unique sun-drenched micro-climate. Here you are invited to enjoy village life with every convenience close at hand: freshly baked bread daily with groceries, artisan butcher, café/bars, local tavern, fine dining choices, water taxi and boat connections, local bus service, bank with Bancomat (ATM), post office, and village church; all within 200 metres.

Free parking is available in the village precinct, or we can arrange off-street parking for you at €10 per car each day.

Chat with the neighbours; enjoy an 'aperitivo'; relax with a refreshment or a coffee; swim at the beach; take a taxi-boat to explore the island or a ferryboat to the famous tourist spots of Lake Como and the scenic towns from Como to Menaggio; hike to Switzerland; or simply plan another lazy day enjoying what Sala and Matra Ponto have to offer.

My stay at Rustic Village Casa was so wonderful! Wendy and Harold are the ultimate hosts – extremely friendly, helpful, accommodating and so much fun to hang out with. I have never met nicer people or had better hosts and consider them friends. Their place is absolutely gorgeous and comfortable; I wish I lived there! I also loved the Sala Comacina area which is absolutely beautiful and not overrun with tourists and although I didn’t venture out of the area, it is really convenient if you want to venture to other places. There is also a nice place to swim and the Greenway Walk is a must. I really cannot rave enough and totally recommend staying here, you will not find a lovelier place or people. Thank you Wendy and Harold, and I hope to visit again!

Absolutely wonderful host. The accommodations were awesome and this was one of the best we've stayed At!

Wow!!!!! To say that Wendy is thorough and incredible is such an understatement! Honestly, I have never met anyone like her. She was so complete and on time with all the correspondence before our stay. When we got there, the support and complete guidance she gave us was so over and above. She greeted us and helped us with our luggage from the bus station, and she is so caring, fun and genuine that I felt like she was a close, reliable friend I had known for life! She acquaints you with the village by introducing you to the local shops and people, and she will meet with you and invite you to fun and heartwarming events. I have never met anyone as capable as her. The home is so cozy and well appointed, that you feel so warm and fuzzy, but still have all the modern amenities you need, as well as all dishes, cutlery etc. We are not only fervent fans of Wendy and Sala, but we are happy to call such a wonderful person our friend! The restaurant just down the alley overlooking Sala Island, right on the water, was the icing on the cake at nights, sooo yummy and romantic! We will be back over and over again Wendy, thank you!

Our stay at Wendy & Harold's rustic village casa was exceptional! Upon our arrival, Wendy greeted us with a lovely warm smile, hugs & a much appreciated basket of goodies! Their casa is so cozy, inviting & it's master bed is made with linens that rivals any of the top hotels. Wendy was the perfect host showing us around the village & introducing us to many of the locals. We had an endless list of questions about the area that she graciously answered at all times of the day & night. We had a wonderful time here on our honeymoon & will definitely be back!

Wendy and her home are absolutely wonderful. She has created with great care the most welcoming, charming Italian home in a quiet little village on Lake Como. She is thoughtful in every detail-- comfortable mattresses, lovely linens, beautiful antique furnishings, a well equipped kitchen stocked with some staples ahead of arrival... the charm abounds. And where other hosts may just check you in and out, Wendy is available throughout the stay to answer your questions, give guidance on local excursions or to recommend a restaurant... she truly makes you feel like visiting family and it singles her out as an exceptional AirB&B hostess. Our family of 6 (mom and dad and 4 kids-- 14, 12, 8, and 6) loved the nearby family friendly restaurant set next to a playground where the kids played soccer while my husband and I enjoyed a quiet glass of wine ;) and a gorgeous view over the lake. We also LOVED the local hiking along the Greenway and up to the church-- one of Wendy's recommendations and a big hit. Thank you so much Wendy-- you helped create wonderful memories for our family that will last a lifetime!

Wendy was very welcoming! We were very tired, and were welcomed with cookies, wine and other goodies. We loved the quaint and special neighborhood. Wendy took the time to introduce us to the shop owners and walked us around the town to help us get our bearings and feel welcome. The people of Sala were very friendly and the restaurants were convenient with excellent food. We especially loved walking to Lenno and later taking the boat ride to Villa Balbianello. Wendy took the time to help us with anything we needed. Thank you Wendy, we hope to return soon!

This was hands down one of the best Airbnb experiences ever! My husband and I were so warmly welcomed by Wendy into the absolutely delightful home which is even prettier than the pictures and set in a real Italian neighborhood in the middle of one of the most charming villages right on Lake Como. The place was impeccably clean, lovingly restored and tastefully furnished with old world charm. A wonderful welcome basket awaited us and we rested our heads on five star hotel linen every night. Last and certainly not least Wendy introduced us to some of the lovely residents of Sala Comacina and we felt instantly dialed in. Also she went above and beyond her responsibilities as a host and made sure all our needs were met as well as giving us some superb recommendations regarding our itinerary. We will be back and are more than grateful to not only have had an amazing experience but also have made a new friend with Wendy!
