Dear Eric, Robin and Giselle,
We just wanted to thank you for the wonderful time up in the hills at Villa Gisette. We had such a pleasant and enjoyable time. Everything was perfect thanks to your thoughtfulness and hospitality. You are truly marvelous hosts and we will always remember you !

If you are looking for the perfect romantic villa with great views, look no more.
My wife and I found ourselves in paradise, literally.
Villetta Gisette was immaculate,very cozy and private, just like the ad states. The villa ia much more than we had expected, lovely. What a very special place to stay. We enjoyed ourselves enormously.
The local restaurants, Bella Vista and National as well as Tre Rose were all very good. Bella Vista being our favorite.
Welcoming locals and so warm, we felt like family.
The owners of Villetta Gisette also own Villa Gabriella and Villa Gisella. We are so looking forward to the openng of their new Villettas on the waterfront called 'Lake Como Beach Resort', in Pognana Lario- Como, of which they showed us the interior and exterior designs and views. We have already booked for a week this summer - my wife can't wait. The owners Eric and Robin thought of everything.
Their properties are top notch.

Jackie and I loved our stay at Villa Gisette! The location up in the mountains and off the beaten path gave us the peace and quiet we wanted, yet we were just short drives away from Bellagio and Como so we enjoyed the best of both worlds. We woke up to a beautiful view every morning and enjoyed delicious food from the local market and some nearby restaurants. We can't say enough about Eric and his family - they really care about making their guest's stay pleasant and comfortable. They have other properties on the lake itself, so if staying up in the mountains isn't for you I'm sure you'll enjoy the same great care and service we received at one of the lake properties.

Stayed at the property for one week in late September. We were extremely happy with the accomodations, location and overall amenities of the home. Eric was a terrific host and informed us of local restaurants in the area. Having stayed in Nesso before, we were familiar with the area, but not the village of Veleso. Eric provided info for where to have dinner, hiking trails and local markets, etc. Would highly recommend the location and property to other visitors to the area!
What a wonderful week we had! After a warm welcome by Eric, Robin and Giselle who helped us with luggage, parking and all those questions you have when you first arrive at a new location, we began appreciating our new home: nicely furnished with all you need including a fully equipped kitchen plus a washing machine. The house was sparkling clean and everything was in very good condition. The large patio spans around the whole house and offers a beautiful view into the valley. And then there are Robin, Eric and Giselle: their support and kindness were one of a kind. There wasn't a question they could not answer, be it providing ideas where to go, where to eat, which bus or boat to take. And besides, we enjoyed the nice chats in the evenings! And to keep it with Schwarzenegger: We'll be back!
We had a great time at Villa Gisette which was a true haven away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. It is so peaceful with beautiful views and it feels like time is standing still when you walk up to the front door after the crazy drive up the hairpin bends on the approach road. Eric and his wife Robin and their daughter Giselle made us feel completely at home and were always there we needed them to make a recommendation or booking for us. We had a dinner at altitude up the road in Veleso at Bella Vista and also down the road at Crotto del Misto which was lakeside. Both were unforgettable evenings. The resort that we were able to use that our hosts also run was excellent and very laid back. Cold beer and drinks on hand and a small beach area with a jetty enabling us to swim in the Lake and also have our own boat dropped off for the day with no hassle at all. The driveway down to the resort is legendary in it's steepness which you will experience and come to enjoy along with the elevator too. We drove to Bellagio which was lovely and Como is fun too. The funicular to Bruante is very busy and hot, but it's only 7 minutes to the top and there are some great views to be had also. A brilliant week topped off with a spectacular thunder storm sweeping slowly through the valley one evening which made for superb viewing too. Thanks again to our hosts, they made us feel so welcome and at home. Definitely a five star experience in every way and one we would recommend to anyone.
We visited March 26 - April 2 and had an absolutely sublime week at Villetta Gisette. The little home was spotlessly clean and even more charming and well-equipped than advertised. Our hosts were very attentive to our needs, making excellent recommendations for dining out, touring and grocery shopping, and even rescuing us when we overestimated our ability to walk back up the trail to Nesso. Yet, they gave us plenty of distance to enjoy the mountain retreat as though we were the only two people on the planet. The villetta and area offered features that delighted us, among them: a huge, comfortable bed; a well-maintained fireplace and a stock of wood for the chilly evenings of spring; a kitchen equipped with all the tools and appliances that make a cook feel at home and ready for creativity; a location in the middle of the mountain forest with plenty of wildlife to keep us busy looking up bird, butterfly and lizard species; a beautifully landscaped property with well-cared for fruit trees - just starting to bloom when we arrived; a huge covered terrace with comfortable furnishings that allowed us to enjoy time reading and dining outside even during the spring rain; trails through the forest and along a bubbling brook that make reaching the villages of Veleso and Zelbio a peaceful, traffic-free stroll; a quiet and private environment, yet quick access to the major roads. Dear Hosts: Thank you so much!
