The owner was not only efficient, but welcoming and helpful, and we would definitely recommend the property to others. We should also add that it is very well situated as regards train stations, and within minutes of the Lake front.

                                                                                                    5 of 5
                                                                                                    From the moment of our arrival to the final wave "arrivederci", our visit to the Lake Como Beach Resort was delightful. Having never been to LCBR, we were a little unsure of the exact location (in spite of extensive "Google Maps-Street View" explorations) and our driver was at a loss, too. Thanks to our Verizon International Travel Plan we were able to reach Eric, our host, who dropped what he was doing to assist us, jet-lagged and delirious... He grabbed our luggage and trundled us off to La Meridiana, a local trattoria, for lunch. Then we repaired to our lovely Villetta #5, "Vista Lago". Ahhh... uncorked the red wine and sat back to soak in the afternoon sun beaming onto our private second-floor balcony. That night, we were awakened by brilliant moonlight streaming in the bedroom's French doors, diamonds dancing across the lake, the little village on the other side providing its own spray of twinkling lights.... could this scene be more perfect, more romantic? Poets die for inspiration like this! The local market, run by Vincenzo and Luisa is a 15 minute hike via elevator and stairs, try the gnocchi, the assorted salumi, cheeses and wines. Fresh bread every morning... get there early for best selection... Luca will deliver your groceries if you ask, minimal charge, perhaps only a tip... Peppo's Bar, across from the Gastronomica, offers decent fare and an assortment of beverages: teas, coffees, beer, wine and spirits, accompanied by a panoramic view of the lake. (The bus stops there, too. About every 1/2 hour along the lake road to Como, one way, Bellagio the other.) We took the ferry on 3 separate days to Bellagio, Varenna, Menagio, Lenno... charming villages, all. It was mid-October and the crowds were diminished from summer levels. The ferry is just 5 minutes from the Villettas along the lake front walkway. Catch the ferry: 11:08 AM, pay on board. Best value: multi-day pass. Recommend: Enoteca Cava Turacciolo, Bellagio... Ristorante Vapore, Torno... Il Pomadorino, Como, and a tour of Villa Balbianello! Blessed by a rainy day? There's a fine selection of movies and books in the resort lobby and beverages for sale. Come and go at your own leisure, Eric and Robin are your resource for problem solving and, while being available, they're not omnipresent. Once you meet them, though, you'll want to hang out with them constantly! Seriously, they're that nice and that much fun! We loved our visit and eagerly anticipate our return!

                                                                                                    4 of 5
                                                                                                    If you are considering visiting Lake Como and self catering, then Eric and Robin's villa is definitely worth a stay. Positioned right by the lake side, and as it says, with a beach which I wouldn't be surprised could be the only beach on Lake Como, you look directly across the water in the direction of Como itself which lies in the south. Our villa comprised of a nice sized lounge area with a fitted kitchen that had everything you need to cook up some Italian dishes of your own, though the great restaurants are a must too and their cooking is a little bit better than ours! A spiral staircase takes you up to the bedroom with a soft comfy double bed, a good sized wardrobe and a dresser. A bathroom with a good shower is also there. Eric is a great host and would ensure that we had everything we needed, would ensure we knew where we were going, and tell you the best restaurants to go to and also the ones to try and avoid. These ones, such as the restaurants by Como Cathedral, do excellent food but tend to charge a bit more, as we found out when NOT listening to Eric! An amazing part of the charm of Lake Como is the ferry hopping from village to village. The villa is located so conveniently to the ferry stop of Pognana. A 5 minute walk to it, through some attractive cobbled back streets, and you are there to then travel away. The charge is not excessive and is the alternative to driving along the tight roads that follow the edge of the lake. Parking in the villages and towns if you do drive is not easy so again the ferry is the best option. Como is worth a trip especially to see the cathedral but a must is Bellagio with its stunning architecture. Every where you go, and the ferry view is definitely the best, you will see beautiful settings of houses positioned on the lake edge. We visited two excellent restaurants in Torno and Blevio and you will find on the menu lake fish that is superb. Lenno again is a stunning village and while there do visit the beautiful house and gardens of the Villa del Balbianello, the location for scenes from Casino Royale, and when we were there a setting for a wedding. Now that is romantic! We would recommend the Waterfront villa for the many reason above but not forgetting the beach to relax on the sun beds and the lake to take a dip in. Cool from the mountain water but worth taking the plunge! So thank you Eric and Robin for adding to our experience of Lake Como and memories of a great time. Ciao Mark & Caira.
