We lost our luggages so we had to go to supermarket and buy many things. Owners drove us to supermarket in the middle of the night!! Next day we had to go to airport to pick up our luggages so again we got help from them! You can ever get better service, they are amazing, incredible! Wiew from the house is great. House is located on the small and romantic village. We really recommend this place!

We stayed here a part of a family celebration with friends dotted around the lake. This villa was by a long way the pick of the bunch. I never tired of the floor to ceiling views inside the home or from the balcony or terrace upstairs. The interior is even better in reality to the publicity and every piece of furniture is brand new as i understand the owners have only just purchased the property. In fact we were the only guests in residence and did not see any one else use the additional terrace upstairs so enjoyed it all to ourselves. The air con came in handy and it was convenient that we could control the temperature for each room individually. The property was perfectly located for our family. A lovely quiet location overlooking the Whole lake and mountain yet in only 10 minutes by foot or less by car we could reach the buzzing lakeside city of Como which was great for shopping. Clothes, food and wine (and not necessarily in that order!) We used the ferry to take us out and about but we are glad we hired a car as this came in handy for trips to Milan and St Moritz. For the rest of the time we parked up and left it in the garage at the villa. All in all a truly memorable stay. The holiday was not cheap it must be said but it was a special occasion and still good value for the 5 of us. So if you want to "do Como" in style you would do well to beat this villa!
