I first feel in love with Lake Como visiting as a child with my parents. We bought the beautiful Villa Negri in 2002 at the same time as George Clooney! We have taken great care over the restoration, using local trades people, high quality products combined with beautiful antiques. We have enjoyed the most wonderful family holidays at Villa Negri, highlighted recently by our daughter wedding. We live in London and we have 3 children, James and Greg, Claudia now married to Mark, we also have an Airedale called Daisy who takes an annual trip to Como! We are lucky to have a wonderful villa manager, Silvana combined with her team will look after guests with the utmost care.

Stunning place to stay and have a belated 70th Birthday celebration. Welcome basket of goodies on arrival, friendly maid coming in each day. Every facility we needed, even cake tins to make a cake for my daughter- in -law's Birthday! Wonderful to sit on the balcony each morning as the sun came up over the mountain opposite. My four grandchildren,aged 4 - 11, almost lived in the pool, nearly every meal was eaten outside in the various lovely spaces and we adults could sit outside with a drink in the evening on the middle level of the garden but still hear the sleeping children if there was a problem. Easy access to both Malpensa and Linate airports, amazing supermarket in Cernobbio, relaxing boat trip to Como, and a beach to swim in the lake at Gravedona, after a beautiful drive north along the lake. A lovely little local shop a couple of minutes away(fresh bread for breakfast each day), and a delicious meal in the even nearer restaurant on our last evening.We need to return to celebrate my 75th!
Absolutely beautiful villa - would move in tomorrow !! Breakfast
In the sun on the patio 1st morning, what a fabulous way to start our holiday. Great shopping in Como town and a visit to Bellagio by ferry is a must. Lovely local restaurants to try if you don't want to cook, but the kitchen is amazing so much space and everything you could possibly need is there. Need to go back with my husband next time ! (This holiday was with good girlfriends) happy memories made which will last a very long time.
Had a wonderful stay in this gorgeous villa. Really felt as though we were Italians living the dream. Caught the ferry from place to place round the lake. Enjoying the coffee, the food and the shopping also there were lovely villas and gardens to walk around. Then to return to our villa, have a swim in the pool and watch the activity on the lake. Finally to stroll down to the restaurant for a great meal. We need to come back again.
