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.

FABULOUS VIEWS AND WONDERFUL WELCOME

  • 4 of 5
Had a wonderful holiday at Villetta Serenita in April. The welcome by Eric and Mohammad was excellent; nothing was too much trouble and Eric was full of helpful advice on things to do and places to go. The location was great with million dollar views (including George Clooneys villa!). About 20 minute drive from Como along crazy mountain/lakeside roads but ferry and bus services on the doorstep if you prefer not to drive. Peppo's Bar seems to be focal point of local life and very welcoming with amazing lake views. Good mini-market short walk away. Would recommend to friends!

AMAZING.

  • 5 of 5
We stayed in a 2 bedroom apartment for a week in June 2013. Lake Como itself is absolutely fantastic. As a hotelier myself I couldn't be happier with the accommodation and personalised service we received before, during and after our stay. The location is great, our apartment was very clean and had everything we required, including a well equipped kitchen. The grounds were very neat and tidy and the beach and dock area is fantastic. The views are phenomenal. The on site staff and owner are very hands on and extreemly helpful, which made an amazing place even better. We were provided plenty of !information on what to do around the area and the staff were very helpful in organising reservations and even a hire boat for 1/2 a day.
Our highlights:
The view from the grounds - amazing.
The staff - so helpful and great with our 3 year old, who is a hand full
Cernobio - Beautiful town for walking around.
Bellagio - A must see, Como water taxis great for a trip out on the lake, ask for Luca.
Bella Vista Restaurant - Do yourself a favour and make time for a meal here. the owner will make a res for you.

10/10.

A VERY HOSPITABLE STAY

  • 5 of 5
We and our daughter received a warm welcome to our villa by a resort staff member and also had a good chat with Eric on our arrival. We had good vibes about the place having already received lots of helpful information about our pending stay from Eric, including suggestions for transfers from Varenna.- we arrived in Varenna by regional train from Tirano after our magical trip on the Bernina Express from Switzerland. Eric had also put us in touch with a good taxi company to get us from Bellagio (we took the ferry from Varenna to Bellagio) to the resort. The next day was Easter Sunday, and we very much enjoyed lunch at the La Meridiana Restaurant, which was recommended to us by Eric.

We were very satisfied with our accommodation. A lovely location, right on the lake and, yes, the views from the bedroom are wonderful. Good facilities and layout and very well presented.

A ferry trip on the lake is a must - we took the ferry to Tremezzo and back. While the weather wasn't great for most of our 6 day stay, we made some lovely day trips by hire car, both around sections of the lake and also to the Matterhorn.

We would thoroughly recommend Lake Como Beach Resort.

STILL REMINISCING

  • 5 of 5
Our stay at Villa Serenita was the beginning of a month long trip through Italy. Half way through our journey we are still reminiscing about the memories made at Lake Como and our stay at Villa Serenita. The magical gardens that you walk through before entering the private villa overlooking Lake Como enchanted our kids into hours of play. The view out of the master bedroom is just as pictured but better when you are breathing it in! However, the hospitality of Eric and Robin far exceeds anything you could hope for when visiting Italy. Eric went over and above making sure that we had a fabulous 10 days at Lake Como! Making new friends with a beautiful family was the highlight for all of us.

FEW DAYS OF SERENITY ON COMO LAKE

  • 5 of 5
Dear Jiselle, Robin and Eric, we miss Como lake and your peaceful place.
The situation can't be better because of the water proximity and also the ferrys. We've appreciated to let go on the "private beach". Next time, we'll maybe swim.
We've appreciated all the good tips Eric gave us to really enjoy the place: spots to see, restaurants for great Italian food, ferrys to pick up and also many locations you can do as boat-rental!!!
Thank you for your friendly welcome!

DELIGHTFUL HOLIDAY - SPECTACULAR LOCATION

  • 5 of 5
My friends and I had a delightful holiday in this spectacular location. We fell in love with this wonderful very private spot centrally located on Lake Como. Worth the drive down the curved driveway to the elevator.
Gorgeous landsacpe and gardens. Truly a treasure in a location second to none. Very well maintained and spotlessly clean.
Excellent customer support and care throughout our stay by Eric and Robin.
The warm welcome we received was most welcomed and we felt right at home from the start.
The views are gorgeous from all over the property.
Most enjoyed the swimming in the lake from the rock beach and sand lido as well as the wonderful bbq area overlooking the lake.
Hey Eric, you are welcome to come and vist us in Australia anytime !
You have done a tremendous job here and have an amazing resort.
Thanks for sharing it with us.
Please tell Chef Luigi from Salice Blu that his restaurant was our favourite.
Don't miss the motor boat rental to view the lake from the water.
