A hidden gem in a beautiful setting.

  • 5 of 5

We had a thoroughly enjoyable time here. A simply beautiful house, in a peaceful location, and with lake views at the back of the property. We all felt throughly rested at the house and enjoyed being up in the Hills away from the hotels and guest houses. The children enjoyed exploring the garden, and my husband enjoyed the cycling, tackling the 'Muro' and other rather adventurous climbs. I enjoyed sitting in the garden early in the morning, taking an expresso and listening to the distant church bells.

Our time here was very relaxing and we would thoroughly recommend.

the great escape: seclusion and tranquility!

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here in October with a group of 6 friends. Tucked away in the hills above Nesso, we were all stunned by the beauty of this lovely location and impressive house. A safe haven, the best of both worlds: close enough to access the lake by car and far enough away to escape the lakeside hustle and bustle. We were all cyclists, blown away by the scenery and history. Highlights were the incredible roads, including two world famous climbs; Il Ghisallo and The Muro, stopping for authentic Italian coffee at beautiful lakeside villages (especially Torno) and soaking up the peace and quiet back at the house. We can recommend a nearby restaurant Bella Vista in Veleso, a tranquil, but steep walk, 10mins up the hill. Will be back

beautiful

  • 5 of 5

My family had a wonderful stay in this villa in the summer. We went with grandparents and grandchildren and they all thoroughly enjoyed it. The house is gorgeous and with a huge garden for the kids to play in. It is a 10 minute drive to the lake but in truth we found it nice and peaceful to be up in the mountains away from the lake front, and on some days stayed at the house rather than going to the lake. There are plenty of amazing walks and cycle routes to do in the area also. My 11 year old son declared it the best holiday ever.

Ten family and friends, including children,stayed in this fabulous villa in the hills above Lake Como.The property was decorated to a very high standard.We all loved the location,peaceful yet only a short distance to the Lake ,Bellagio and Como.Stunning scenery,perfect for walkers(not me) or sitting in the garden reading with a chilled glass of wine(me).I would definately recommend this holiday destination.Thanks also to the owner for all his help!

This beautiful house is in an excellent location and the views are superb.

Very good position for walking in the mountains, with easy access to Como and Bellagio by car.

We would recommend this house and look forward to our holiday next year!!

Exquisitely relaxed

  • 4 of 5

A great place for a vacation with small children. We spent two weeks in this beautiful house with a family of friends and alltogether four children aged 3 to 5. We loved the house from the moment we saw it - one of the most authentic and tastefully decorated I have ever seen. You can let the kids play all day in the huge protected garden and relax with a book and a glass of wine or go to the lake. The landlord was very friendly and helpful all the way through our stay. What you shouldn't do is take your best car on this vacation - parking in the area can be quite tricky.
