Our family, ranging in age from 6 to 76, spent a perfect week. Il Cigno del Lago was spacious, lovely, full of character, and ideally situated. Inside, there was plenty of room for all 11 of us, bedrooms and public spaces were comfortable, and the kitchen functioned well. Outside, the gardens were just beautiful, and provided numerous places either to congregate together or to enjoy quietly. We made ample use of the lakeshore, with lots of swimming, kayaking, and "sea glass" and terra cotta fragment collecting! The view of the mountains from the windows of the villas as well as the lakeshore was gorgeous. Although the property is on a somewhat busy road, the wall made it feel quiet and secure. The staff of Luxury Retreats was incredibly helpful in meeting our requests, and arranged a number of meals and excursions for us, as well as two catered meals at the villa which were exceptional.
