Guestbook comments from the manager

Sorry for my delayed reply, been hectic with work since we returned from holiday!

We had a really lovely week in Porlezza, we just thought the whole area was beautiful, the scenery is really out of this world and everyone we met was so lovely and welcoming. I would say the scenery and the friendliness of all the locals was the best thing about our holiday, including the amazing view from the villa.



The villa was lovely and we loved sitting out on an evening with the stunning lake view. The location was also perfect being so close to the village and restaurants etc.

The living room area is really amazing and spacious, although we found the bed area a little small.



We appreciated your tips on things to do in the area and we explored quite a lot of it, particularly enjoying the boats which we rented from nautic planet a couple of times. We would have loved to go on one of the train trips but our toddler is a bit of a handful on public transport so we travelled mostly by car. We did make it to Milan for a day trip too and did a couple of hikes.



The villa was easy to find with the detailed directions and the team were very helpful when we asked for a high chair and a new cotbed.



My iphoto is playing up at the moment so I can't attach any photos but will send some on in due course as we took lots of pictures of the amazing view from the living area.



Thank you again for all the information you sent through,
