We had a wonderful week at this lovely house in a gorgeous part of Italy. The property is in a very quiet location with easy access to Como and the surrounding area.
The facilities in the property were excellent and everything worked well. There is the added bonus of Tennis courts a short walk from the house, as well as horse riding if you wish.
The local restaurant was first class, if a little expensive.
The pool is a good size and kept very clean.
Most impressive was the kindness and generosity of the owners who were very helpful with any questions we had. Thank you!
A great find, and perfect for our needs! This house was of particular benefit to our group of friends who rented all three bedrooms in the downstairs half of the house while we were in the area to compete in a golf competition at the nearby Circolo Villa d'Este Golf Club (2kms away). This turned out to be the most convenient place to rendezvous upon our arrival, as one would find it difficult to find one's way directly, even with a GPS, since the house lies a kilometre down a gravel path after traversing an electric privacy barrier that one needs a remote for. The gravel path leads past a horse riding centre which had regular competitions that we sometimes stopped to watch.Arriving at the house one has a great sense of exclusivity and privacy away from the hustle and bustle. Not only did we enjoy the extensive garden and pool, but we spent enjoyable evenings grilling barbecues and playing table tennis in the quiet and undisturbed surroundings of open fields, woodland and hills. It was great to get up early and take a refreshing plunge in the generously sized swimming pool that we had entirely to ourselves.
The owners were extremely friendly, welcoming and helpful, and went out of their way to assist (having charcoal ready for us when they knew we were planning to grill, driving us to the best supermarket in the area, going to fetch members of our party from the golf club etc). Upon our arrival little snacks were laid out as welcome appetisers and two bottles of bubbly were waiting chilled in the fridge. On another day we returned to find a locally baked traditional cake of the region left for us as a present to enjoy for our next day's breakfast. However, it didn't make it that long, as by the time we went to bed, it had been polished off!
The only issue I had was the lack of a decent WiFI internet set-up, which I had heard was a problem with many of the rental places in the area. The owners did let us use their iPad which had a dongle connection to a network, so we were able to get online, but not using my own laptop, though it turned out to be a welcome break for me not to be online so much during my stay!
La villa est située au calme, dans un jardin arboré parsemé de magnifiques hortensias. A l'intérieur, le living room est spacieux et confortable, avec de nombreux jeux pour les enfants. La cuisine est effectivement petite mais elle est ouverte vers le living room et bien équipée avec des équipements et des ustensiles de qualité et en nombre.
Sur la terrasse, table de ping-pong pour les amateurs. En contrebas se situe la piscine, ensoleillée et de grande dimension.
Il est exact que les propriétaires vivent au 1er étage mais les espaces sont bien séparés et les propriétaires très discrets.
La maison est idéalement située pour atteindre facilement les grands sites touristiques de la Région.
Hôtes sympathiques et accueillants que nous recommandons.
We have spend a really nice week in the villa. The inside of the house and the rooms, bathrooms looks like the pictures. However, the kitchen is really tiny, no window and it is really difficult to cook there for 6-7 people. The swimming pool is nice and big. We have been well welcome by the owner (with some specialty brioche offered). The big black point was firstly that we were the first of the season so the swimming pool haven't been cleaned properly, the grass has been cut in the middle of our stay, the house was dusty (also the plates, glasses...etc) like when nobody live there for a while. For us, the house wasn't ready when we arrived which was a bit unfair to us (even though they ask us if the gardener could come and what time...). Now the point which should be said in the add is that the owners live upstaires and there is a dog. We were with a child and the dog bark few afternoon during her nape and arrived twice in our living room which can be dangerous. Overall we had a pleasant stay, but it is not missing much to have a perfect stay. I think that more details such as the dog and the owner living upstaires should be mentioned. Thank you.
A beautiful house, very big as the garden and the swimming pool. The rooms are full of optional and detailed with all the things one need to spend a good holiday. Antique and modern furnitures live together in a lovely mix. A dip in the history of the family that hosted us. A wonderful place to relax body and mind but also to have fun with friends. We can only recommend it to everybody. See you soon Fabiana & Alessandro
