Fantastic apartment in a lovely location.

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely 2 weeks at Villa Isella in Kathy's apartment. The grounds are lovely and quiet and the private pool was fabulous. The property was extremely well maintained, and clean and we were given very clear directions to get there. The first journey along the road was an adventure as the road up to Villa Isella is quite narrow and on the hill side, but the peace, tranquillity and views over the lakes make it worthwhile! Local facilities were amazing - with a large Carrefour on the main road, and at least 2 restaurants within walking distance one (Solaria) was at the bottom of the hill, the other one (Rotunda) just along the road from Villa Isella. We had lots of information and recommendations from Kathy prior to our trip, and on arrival there was lots of leaflets for things to do in the local area.

All in all a lovely holiday in a great apartment - Thank you Kathy!!!

Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

The setting/location of Villa Isella was ideal as we were only a few minutes from Menaggio & Lugano so we had the luxury of exploring both Italian & Swiss lakes. Your apartment was really lovely, had everything we needed and felt really homely. The grounds and views were beautiful, the area so peaceful and what made the holiday special for us was the private grounds. We felt like we were in another world. Rotunda restaurant which a highlight also and was only a few minutes walk away. Will definitely contact you for a return visit

Breathtaking location and facilities

  • 5 of 5

I spent a week at this most amazing Villa in June and can't rate it highly enough.

The peaceful location, wonderful pool, fantastic views are just the beginning. The accommodation was perfect with two large bedrooms upstairs and a cosy lounge and kitchen downstairs.

Ideally situated and very well appointed, I can find no fault with this Villa having stayed in many around the world over the years. 5 Stars truly deserved.
