The ideal idyl

5 of 5
It is hard to find words good enough to do justice to our experience of staying at Villa la Ruga. When we first arrived at the villa, our jaws dropped at the staggering views of the lake and surrounding mountains before us. Being right by the water, we felt totally uninterrupted and fully immersed in the breathtaking power of the area. Turning our attention to the villa itself, it was clear that this is a very special place indeed. Full of charm and equipped for our every need, we quickly began to feel very lucky to have found it! We had ample opportunity to explore lake Como. Hiking, driving, boating and ferries are all easily accessible. As truly wonderful as sightseeing was, returning to the villa always seemed like the pièce de résistance. Each evening, we found the perfect refuge to enjoy good company over a local wine next to a roaring fire. Meeting Francesco was sincerely one of the highlights of our stay. It is hard to imagine a host more intelligent, affable and helpful. Never intrusive, but always available, he helped us on so many occasions with matters great and small. One of our most magical experiences began with us setting off by boat directly from the villa. After a few hours scooting around the lake, we pulled up to a wonderful restaurant where we enjoyed a terrific lunch consisting of local cuisine. We have Francesco to thank for that whole experience! From setting up the boat, providing advice and directions to booking the restaurant itself, the whole experience was taken care of. Thank you so much! So many wonderful memories: breakfast on the patio; ping-pong tournaments; choosing wines from the cellar; talking about life and the world with Francesco; the best meals we have had in Italy (and we have been around!); waking to views of the lake; pizza delivery by candlelight; rugged hillsides; mystery water bottles; napping on the deckchairs; the stars above and below... I would normally describe something like this as the "trip of a lifetime". The only thing that stops me is that I can't wait to come again to repeat it! Hopefully Villa la Ruga and Francesco will be around for a long time so we can enjoy "many trips of a lifetime".

Fabulous honeymoon location!

5 of 5
After spending two days in wonderful Verona at the start of our honeymoon we picked up our hire car and drove the scenic route to Porlezza and this fabulous property. We were met by Danielle who showed us round the property and made us feel very welcome. As a previous reviewer has already said, the photos do not do this property justice. The inside of the house is quite small but very cosy. It's the outside areas that bring this place to life. We used the outside cooking area everyday for breakfast and sometimes dinner while overlooking Lake Lugano. From there you go up the stairs to the outside terrace with numerous seating areas, dining table and chairs and a wine fridge! The views are wonderful and we were lucky enough to be here to see the annual firework display that takes place on the lake. We had the best view in Porlezza. The town of Porlezza is a five minute walk away and has everything you need. Pronto Pizza is lovely as is bar Tris. There are supermarkets and a lovely deli for fresh bread every morning. We caught the boat from Porlezza to Lugano in Switzerland which takes around an hour and gives you lovely views of the lake and the surrounding mountains. Lugano itself is very chic. Another worthwhile trip if you have a car is to Menaggio on Lake Como which is about 12kms away. From there get the ferry to Bellagio: supposedly one of the most beautiful towns in Italy. It's a very busy bustling place and great for people watching. Wherever we went though we couldn't wait to come back to this fantastic property. Some days we just sat on the outside terrace taking in the views and relaxing. Highly recommended and we will be back; maybe for an anniversary. Thank you to Danielle, Rosalina and Davide for letting us stay in your lovely property Andy and Julie, Cambridgeshire, UK
