A beautiful villa in the hills above Lake Como.

  • 4 of 5

This is a beautiful villa in a stunning hillside location with distant views of Lake Como. We appreciated being within easy driving distance of the Lake but away from the busy holiday traffic. The villa has been updated without spoiling its character. The quaint period furniture adds greatly to the pleasure of staying there and everything works.

A stiff early morning walk to the nearest village for bread and other supplies was a good way to start the day. There are plenty of local restaurants where the food is good, reasonably priced and served by friendly natives!

Highly recommended.

Stunning

  • 5 of 5

We've been to many stunning places in the world but this has to be the most scenic and relaxing place we've ever been to.

The house is beautifully decorated and comfortable and you really feel at home in it as it has everything you could possibly want for.

The owner was extremely courteous and helpful when contacted.

Would and have recommended this house to anyone who wants a lovely family holiday

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.
