About Rudy and Sandra
I grew up in Gravedona, but live in London with my wife Sandra. We both work, but spend most of our holidays between Lake Como and Rome, where we have our families and many friends.
Rudy and Sandra purchased this Villa in 2008
Why Rudy and Sandra chose Gravedona ed Uniti
We purchased the property in 2008 and it was in bad conditions, although all the original 1600' features were well preserved. The restoration and rebuilding has been a labour of love over several years. With the intent to build the perfect holiday home for ourselves, every detail was given careful attention. Living abroad we don't have the chance to enjoy it as much as we would like so we want to share it with our guests.
What makes this Villa unique
The property is set in a truly unique location in the center of Gravedona, the town with the longest lake-side promenade. The views from the property are breath-taking because the water is wider here than in many other parts and the mountains, although higher, are set back from the edge of the water. We come here to relax and escape from the hectic city life, eat healthy and genuine food, enjoy the enviable weather and outdoor activities.

A slice of heaven
Great wee town, and great house. Thanks Rudy, it was a fantastic holiday.
Everything was amazing!! Attention to detail was incredible! Beautiful place right on the lake. Gravadona was a perfect town and great location! We would definitely come back!!
Fabulous villa right on the lake with stunning views
Villa was lovely. Beautifully decorated and thought through. Right on lake side so very easy access to restaurant, coffee shops, supermarket and bars. Very short walk to lake access. Also close to the boat port, so location excellent.
We stayed a week and it would have been good to have had a change of towels during that time.
Perfect house in perfect location!
The house was beautiful -- newly renovated and perfect for our extended family. The location also couldn't be better. The house is centrally located in Gravedona and right across the road from the lake and a boat dock (ideal for picking up and dropping off passengers from the boat we rented). The ferry terminal is 2 minutes away, as is the supermarket. We were also there for the Ferragosto fireworks (August 14), and there couldn't be a better place than the roof deck for watching them -- they were straight overhead and spectacular!
Stunningly renovated old town house, perfectly situated and perfectly appointed.
Beautifully presented property, spotlessly clean with air conditioning. No expense spared on fittings with all mod cons. Gravedona a lovely town, locals very friendly, great supermarket and some lovely restaurants.
So easy to get the ferry to Como and the very lovely Bellagio. The local tourist office arranges day trips to St Moritz - stunning journey through the Alps both on the train and by bus, to be recommended.
Fosca, her Mother and Roberto all warmly welcoming facilitating a truly wonderful holiday for us.
We would thoroughly recommend it and look forward to gong back in the future.
Amazing stay in a breathtaking location
What a fantastic apartment! From the amazing view to the spacious rooms, this was a real gem. Rudy and family have created a tranquil oasis for their guests. They helped answer all our questions and immediately made us feel welcome. Be sure not to miss pizza from Pizzeria Garbatona or gelato from Gelateria La Carapina.
