We stayed at the property in Villongo for 2 weeks. Upon arrival, late in the evening, after a very long drive through France and Switzerland, we were greeted by the very friendly Elena, whose family own the property. The house was fantastic and we don't think the photos do it justice. The bedrooms are large and the layout is great, with plenty of space.
Our Labrador came with us on holiday and we were worried about how easily she may escape from the garden, thankfully if was fully enclosed by a fence surrounding the whole property, with a secure gate at the entrance, so we had peace of mind for the whole stay. The house was situated down a small private road so we felt very safe. Although the house is not on the lake itself, the village of Villongo is a very short drive away from Sarnico and the property has plenty of secure parking.
Inside, the house was very clean having recently been renovated. Elena made us feel very welcome straight away. Knowing that we arrived late at night, she left us some groceries in the fridge which was a lovely thought. Throughout our stay she gave us lots of information about the local area including places to walk our dog, information about the boat to Montisola and nice restaurants to eat in. During our stay our dog needed to go to the vet due to a tail injury and Elena helped us to arrange it. She even came with us to help translate!
With a large supermarket approximately a mile away, as well as local petrol stations, restaurants and bars, the area is excellent for the tourist who likes to explore. There is even a producing vineyard a couple of minutes walk from the property.
We loved our stay and we can't thank Elena and her family enough for their hospitality. They are lovely people who couldn't do enough for us, yet gave us all the privacy we needed.
This is a great house to stay in if you want to bring your pet on holiday as the family love animals. We will certainly visit again as it was perfect for our needs.
