We had a great family stay on Lake Como at Lcbr. Eric was very helpful and knowledgable and went the 'extra mile' to make sure we were comfortable and settled.

Lovely lakeside location with stunning views and fantastic lido

  • 5 of 5

We've just had a great 10 days at lake Como beach resort. The weather was glorious and we enjoyed sunbathing on the lido and swimming in the lake. Lake Como is absolutely stunning. Eric and his family were lovely and Eric in particular was so helpful and friendly. We were later than planned arriving due to flight delays and Eric very kindly went and picked up some pizzas for us from a near by restaurant. We loved the local shop and enjoyed their fresh pasta, ragu and gnocchi as well as Italian meats and cheeses. There weren't many restaurants or bars within walking distance so although you don't need a car to get around I would definitely recommend hiring one. The drive from the airport was easy and we didn't find the Italian drivers too crazy.

Eric organised a speed boat for us for the day and I would thoroughly recommend this as it was a great way of viewing all the lovely lakeside properties. We loved Bellagio, Varenna and Como. Although Pognana Lario is a small village with limited shops and restaurants the lakeside location with lido makes it very special. We would love to return.

Fantastic beyond our expectations

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a truly restful stay at Lake Como Beach Resort in August and are already longing to return. Eric, Robin and Giselle are a lovely family and Mohammed could not have been more helpful. The welcome is warm and genuine. We were thoroughly spoiled by Sylvia who acted as chauffeur, shopper and concierge in addition to proving to be a highly entertaining dining companion.

The location is spectacular and the villetas are well equipped. Our sons loved swimming and kayaking on the lake.

Many resorts claim to offer outstanding hospitality but this one truly delivers. A rare find.

Thanks to you all. We will return.

Now we want to move here....

  • 5 of 5

What a fantastic place! We came with 2 young children, and could not have found a more family friendly place. To get there by ferry was simple, even not speaking Italian, and Muhammad and Sylvia got us settled right away. Within a half hour, the children were in the water and we didn't get them out again until we left! Eric and Giselle were extremely helpful and friendly, and the villetta was exceptionally well stocked. Despite being worried that we may have needed to do a shop in Como before arriving, we found the local market had everything we needed, plus fantastic fresh meats, chicken, etc. Getting to and from Como and Bellagio was simple by bus or ferry, although the trade off of being in a smaller village was less frequent service - absolutely fine by us! The village of Pognano itself is above the resort and well worth the grunt up the hill to wander the streets. An additional bonus for those with a car - we took the road out of Nesso and Zelbio to the top of the mountain ridge that separates the east and west arms of the lake, to discover an active observatory, where volunteers showed the children the sun spots they were recording, let them hold pieces of meteorites and showed them the moon through their smaller telescope - so much fun! Also fantastic hikes, reminiscent of Sound of Music, around the top.

The only comment I would have - we had the family room unit, and with the European heat wave, the additional family room was stifling. Eric and Sylvia made sure there were fans but any other way of moving air through that room/ cooling would be helpful.

We cannot recommend Lake Como Beach Resorts enough - we had a super time and let us know if any properties next to you come available, Eric!

heaven on earth!

  • 5 of 5

I was worried the excellent reviews wouldn't live up to my expectations but this beautiful place did that and more. As a family we think of this place often and have been talking about comming back since the day we left. We didn't have the best of weather when we were there but it didn't matter and the days we did have sunshine Eric did his utmost to make sure we had the perfect day he is an amazing host. The villas are spotlessly clean and the views amazing. Sorry for the late review Eric I was just looking to try and book a return trip and the pictures reminded me of how much I loved it. Kindest regards Annette , Graham, Alex and James Johnson
