Fabulous house and garden

  • 5 of 5

The house is stunning with a lovely garden. Even with 11 of there was ample space for all in the sitting room. Cooking was easy due to the very well equipped kitchen. The owner, Antonio, lives in a separate house and could not have been more helpful. We all (including our dogs) had a great holiday and would love to stay there again.

A wonderful relaxing week at Villa Riva

  • 4 of 5

My ten friends and I spent a wonderful week at Villa Riva. The property has amazing character and charm, combining 18th Century beams and stone floors with quirky 70s light fittings and art work.

The kitchen was well appointed and there was plenty of room, both inside and out to eat and socialise together.

Patrizia and Antonio - our hosts - were on site. They stay in a small house to the rear of the main house. They were very helpful and fixed the few small problems that came up (blown fuse & running toilet) quickly and efficiently. They were respectful of our privacy and gave us plenty of space.

The location of the Villa is great if you are interested in spending time in Bellagio and the surrounding hills. It is above the town so you need a car to access, but it also meant that is was a lot cooler than the lakeside towns. It is also very simple to drive down to the ferry terminal and catch ferries to Varenna or Menaggio.

Antonio was a wonderful source of information and recommended a number of fantastic restaurants to us.

I've given the villa a rating of 4/5 rather than 5/5 because of the proximity of the rather noisy road just by the property. The road was quite busy and could be heard from the house, we quickly got used to it, but it wasn't quite the silent rural idyll we had hoped for!

Thank you Patrizia and Antonio, for a wonderful holiday. We hope that we will come to stay with you again one day.

Owner's Response: Thank you very much for what you write about the Villa and us! Your warm comment encourage us to improve our welcome. Our hope is that you or some of your friends come again to visit us, perharps in May -June when there is an unbelievable explosion of flowers, or in September, when the warm colors of the end summer give a particular romantic atmosphere; in this months, a silent rural idyll is guaranteed. Best regards

Die perfekte Location, um unsere Hochzeit zu feiern

  • 5 of 5

Die Villa sieht in natura noch viel wundervoller aus als auf den Fotos. Der Garten ist sehr gepflegt und weitläufig. Die sechs Schlafzimmer (4 Zimmer mit großen Doppelbetten, ein Zimmer mit 2 Einzelbetten und ein Zimmer mit einem kleinen Doppelbett) sind liebevoll eingerichtet. Wir haben uns dort sehr wohl gefühlt. Mit unseren Gästen (30 Personen) hatten wir eine Gartenparty. Es gab genug Sitzplätze, Besteck, Geschirr, Gläser und Grillzubehör. Die Villa ist ruhig gelegen und Bellagio ist mit dem Auto in 10 Minuten zu erreichen. Die Küche ist sehr gut ausgestattet und Gewürze, Öle, Kaffee und Tee sind vorrätig. Neben einer herkömmlichen Kaffeemaschine gibt es auch eine Espressomaschine. Außerdem gibt es einen zweiten Kühlschrank, somit ist die Villa auch sehr gut für Familienfeiern oder Partys geeignet. Antonio und Patrizia waren sehr hilfsbereit und sehr zuvorkommend. Gerne kommen wir wieder. Vielen Dank für einen unvergesslichen Aufenthalt... Juliane & Björn

Beautiful house at 15 minutes from Bellagio, with very nice and helpful owners

  • 5 of 5

In the winter of 2016/2017, we had a lovely holiday in this beautiful "hunting house". The house has lots of space and is very pleasant to live in. The living room is big enough to sit 12 people, but it is still very cosy, not in the least because of the (huge) open fire place. The bedrooms are spacious and comfortable, and come complete with towels and linen. The best place of the house, though, is probably the kitchen, which is spacy and very well equipped, and therefore is an ideal place to prepare nice meals: as a result, we only ate out once during our week-long stay.

The house is also superbly located to start hikes/walks from, which we did every day (although we had sometimes troubles dragging ourselves away). Civenna, at 2 km, is an excellent place to enjoy a cup of coffee (in Bar Sport) and to buy groceries.

A real plus are owners Antonio and Patrizia, who very kindly welcomed us with bubbles and sweets. In addition, each day Antonio provided us with new wood for the open fire, which was very much appreciated.

We warmly recommend this house, to which we hope to be able to return ourselves one day.

Excellent séjour à Bellagio

  • 5 of 5

La maison est vaste, confortable et très agréable. Nous y avons passé un très bon séjour. Je recommande vivement cette location.

Il est à noter que les propriétaires habitent juste derrière la maison, ce qui est surprenant lorsqu'on arrive !
