Great. Hated leaving. Eric couldn't have been a better host. We'll be back.

  • 5 of 5

What a fabulous place to kick back. My wife and I had been traveling through Italy for ten days and needed to get off our feet. Travel books said this is the we took their advice toured a couple of villas, had some great home style pizzas but basically sat back and enjoyed the view. Spectacular view! We could actually see George and Amal's place across the lake. I guess they were out of town as we never received an invite.

The best part about this lovely place is that it's not in the heavily congested "box" in the middle section bordered by Bellagio and Tremezzo. Those towns are great to visit but you are far better off staying down lake from them where you won't be overrun by tourists. Our stay was mid May and are we're the only one's there.

Eric, the owner, was terrific. We didn't want for anything - wine, cappuccino, directions and good and fashioned American conversation.

We arrived early before check - no sweat. We just joined the neighbors in a wonderful homey Italian Sunday afternoon get together. This party had everything, from barbecued leg of lamb all the way th the after dinner grappa. Loved the Italian hospitality.

We recommend this place highly.

Rolemodel for customer orientation with gorgeous location

  • 5 of 5

Sensationel customer orientated and charming assistance by the owner Eric. Gorgeous location at the banks of the lake, absolutely quiet, well-groomed and perfectly proper. All the wishes were proactively fullfilled. The iron fillet above the water surface was filled with sand with comfortable deck chairs for perfect beach feeling. Two brick-built barbecues were well equipped, standing directly at the water line. We'll come back for sure!

The ideal place to stay to get to know Lake Como

  • 4 of 5

If you are considering visiting Lake Como and self catering, then Eric and Robin's villa is definitely worth a stay. Positioned right by the lake side, and as it says, with a beach which I wouldn't be surprised could be the only beach on Lake Como, you look directly across the water in the direction of Como itself which lies in the south.

Our villa comprised of a nice sized lounge area with a fitted kitchen that had everything you need to cook up some Italian dishes of your own, though the great restaurants are a must too and their cooking is a little bit better than ours!

A spiral staircase takes you up to the bedroom with a soft comfy double bed, a good sized wardrobe and a dresser. A bathroom with a good shower is also there.

Eric is a great host and would ensure that we had everything we needed, would ensure we knew where we were going, and tell you the best restaurants to go to and also the ones to try and avoid. These ones, such as the restaurants by Como Cathedral, do excellent food but tend to charge a bit more, as we found out when NOT listening to Eric!

An amazing part of the charm of Lake Como is the ferry hopping from village to village. The villa is located so conveniently to the ferry stop of Pognana. A 5 minute walk to it, through some attractive cobbled back streets, and you are there to then travel away. The charge is not excessive and is the alternative to driving along the tight roads that follow the edge of the lake. Parking in the villages and towns if you do drive is not easy so again the ferry is the best option.

Como is worth a trip especially to see the cathedral but a must is Bellagio with its stunning architecture. Every where you go, and the ferry view is definitely the best, you will see beautiful settings of houses positioned on the lake edge. We visited two excellent restaurants in Torno and Blevio and you will find on the menu lake fish that is superb. Lenno again is a stunning village and while there do visit the beautiful house and gardens of the Villa del Balbianello, the location for scenes from Casino Royale, and when we were there a setting for a wedding. Now that is romantic!

We would recommend the Waterfront villa for the many reason above but not forgetting the beach to relax on the sun beds and the lake to take a dip in. Cool from the mountain water but worth taking the plunge!

So thank you Eric and Robin for adding to our experience of Lake Como and memories of a great time. Ciao Mark & Caira.

Great place near the lake

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at Como Beach Resort. The villa's are located next to the lake and thus have a manificent view. The resort is well maintained and the villa's are spacious. There is a small private beach, plus the lakes temperature was warm enough to swim in. We visited with a baby, which went perfect.

Thank you Eric for your hospitality and help.

What an amazing stay! We felt the love!

  • 5 of 5

This was the first vacation that my wife and I brought our baby son on and it could not have gone any better. As soon as we arrived, Eric treated us like old friends and provided us with tons of information and answers to all of our questions. The property is absolutely beautiful and Eric provided us with a crib and a bath for our little guy. I would highly recommend this property to anyone and have already brought it up with friends and family.

Lake Como at its best

  • 5 of 5

After our arrival and parking in the free, private car park, we descended by private elevator to the "Lake Como Beach Resort". We were greeted by "Eric", the owner , who greeted us as old friends, and showed us to "Villetta 5" our accommodation for the next 2 weeks. We had a large lounge, complete with T.V. and CD player, a large (very comfortable settee), a large pouffe, and in the window, a dining table and 4 chairs. Completed by a large dresser for storage. The kitchen at the end ,complete with fridge, freezer, oven & hob, completed with a sink with never ending hot water. The bedroom was upstairs with king size bed, large dresser, big wardrobe, and bedside cabinets, and a door to the outside balcony, with views of the lake. The bathroom is complete with shower, W>C>, bidet, and sink, and never ending hot water. Everything was sparkling clean, and in pristine condition. and to top it all the ever present Eric to advise and help when needed. The local restaurants are great value, Le Meridian, and the Pescatore, are really good and reasonable. You can also go "Michelin Star" if you like. Only 200 mts down the road is "Peppo's, the local cafe/bar, and the place to go for friendly, everyday food, and a drink. I will and have already recommend this property to fiends, and anyone else who has been going to the Italian Lakes. My wife and I, can only wish "Eric, Robin, and Jiselle"every success for the future.
