  • Wonderful views - very peaceful
    4 of 5

    We loved Julian and Sue’s villa, which is in a stunning location, with beautiful views of the lake. The villa is very comfortable and quiet, well-appointed and spotlessly clean. It is also very professionally managed. The only thing people should be aware of is the very precarious drive in from the main road, and the steep, twisting drive up to the villa, and also the very scary exit from the drive back out onto the main road, adjacent to a bend. There are also 32 steep steps up from the car to the villa which was tricky with bags and suitcases - but good exercise! Anyone less fit than us might find that a challenge. We love walking - everywhere - so were a bit disappointed that there is absolutely no possibility of walking anywhere from the villa itself, due to the entrance being on a very fast main road, with no pavements, for several miles. However, once in Connonio or Oggebio there are nice walking trails - but you have to drive to get there. The area is absolutely beautiful - especially in the glorious Italian sunshine.

    This was our first stop on an 18-day trip with our 3 children (ages 15, 17 and 21) and it could not have been more perfect. This is a very unique, beautiful property and our hostess, Giulia, was incredibly kind and helpful. We hope to stay here again someday.
