What guests say about Villa Serena…

“We would like to thank everyone at Happy Holiday Homes for being SO helpful with information and answering all sorts of questions regarding the drive we had to the property and various bookings. Lydia was extremely enthusiastic and thoroughly knowledgeable about the advice she gave regarding our journey, which was slightly fraught driving through the Gotthard Pass as we had torrential rain and fog. Quite a precarious pass but apart from that, it was an excellent route. We were very relieved to arrive in Menaggio and the staff were exceptional in guiding us to Plesio where Villa Serena can be found. We did find this short journey very windy, hilly and some drivers not always keeping to their side of the road. We were surprised that we were quite far away from the town and unable just to walk in as the parking situation was very difficult. We had to allow extra time to find a place to park. Villa Serena was indeed beautiful, comfortable and clean, plenty of room and the most amazing views. Lovely to have a pool (shame it wasn’t bigger)! Our trip to Villa Balbianello was superb, sadly Lenno market wasn’t on as it was a national holiday (should have been noted on info sheet) and La Barcola was excellent too. Our favourite outing was to hire a boat for 3 hours and Nautic Planet boat company were excellent and recommended by yourselves. My daughter managed to arrive in Menaggio from Dubai and also had a great journey back. It was she who found Serena initially, and I can say on all our behalves – it was the most wonderful weeks holiday on Lake Como. Our regards to everyone and hope Lydia enjoyed her honeymoon. We will return one day. Regards The Peacheys.” Alison, UK – August 2017

“The villa is wonderful, however, you need to read the directions guidelines carefully to reach to the villa.” Hadi, UK – July 2017

“Our stay at Villa Serena was exquisite. The villa was very well furnished and the outdoor areas were superb, spoiling us with beautiful views of the lake and nearby Varenna. The team were very helpful upon our arrival and departure by providing maps, restaurant recommendations and highlighting local attractions. We will definitely return, can’t wait.” Donna, UK – August 2016

What guests say about Villa Capuana…

“We had a splendid time at Villa Capuana a beautiful place and great location. Marty was too good help and very pleasant to deal with!” Margareta, USA – September 2017

“Yes, we wanted to respond to your inquiry. We had an amazing trip staying at Villa Capuana and are very grateful to the staff at Holiday Homes for making it so enjoyable. First, the house was extraordinary. Beautiful location, nicely furnished, with lots of space and very comfortable. And a pretty well stocked kitchen. One thing we wish is if the owner (or HH) provided some history of the house for the renters to be able to read. I’ve done a little research on the house and it is truly an historic property. We had no idea (I’m happy to share with you what I have learned, if you’re interested). The appliances were all modern and functioned properly, the showers were great, basically everything that was supposed to work, did work. One ting you probably ought to do is let your tenants know that Netflix is available in the house. Our kids accessed that daily (when the internet was working). Second, the boat rental was extremely convenient and a good alternative to renting a car. By boat, we were able to reach many of the local Como towns on our own boat, and not have to worry about the ferry (although we did take the ferry some as well). We would not have rented the boat if there was no boathouse, so that made it easy. Third, the proprietor of the house, Marte (spelling?) was the best. He was not at all intrusive, but available to help whenever we needed him. Sometimes, that was to answer simple questions that we had, other times it was to repair something, he even helped us recover a soccer ball that was stuck in one of the trees. He is a delightful person and a huge help to tenants. Fourth, the fact that the house had air conditioning (in the bedrooms) turned out to be a Godsend. While it was hot downstairs, the bedrooms were comfortable sanctuaries during the two or three really hot, humid days we had on the lake. Fifth, the people in Varenna and Fiumelatte could not have been nicer to us. They made us feel very welcome and not self-conscious at the mistakes in language and custom I’m sure we were making hourly. Sixth, thank you for the recommendation of Clara Bettarini. She was a skilled chef and her lovely daughter Sophia the perfect “wait staff.” It was a terrific way to celebrate our anniversary dinner. We visited the towns of Bellagio (touristy but definitely worth seeing), Menaggio, Bellano, Lenno and Tremezzo. The Grand Hotel Tremezzo (where we ate lunch) was extraordinary. We never did make it to Como or Cernobbio, which I wish we had. Just didn’t have time. The walk to Varenna was easy and it was nice to know there was also a more scenic option (the Greenway). Varenna is a cute town which we thoroughly enjoyed. And a lot of fabulous restaurants. The WiFi was nice to have in the house, although it went down several times when we were there and was typically slow. So I guess among the things we could recommend to improve – we already mentioned some background on Villa Capuana and better internet access. Additionally, it would have been nice to have a little bit better background on restaurant and even grocery market options in Varenna. We had to try a bunch of them ourselves. I would highly rate Crotto di Pina and Ristorante La Vista. Monamour was good, but a little pricey given the quality of the food. We had a pretty good meal at La Punta in Bellagio, but the view was breathtaking. Anyway, more reviews of restaurants accessible to Villa Capuana would have been very helpful. Also, there is a little market in Fiumelatte that was great (open only in the mornings). Would have been nice to know about it in advance. I just kind of stumbled into it the first day we arrived and then went there every day thereafter for daily croissants and bread, prosciutto, cheese, bottled water, etc. Your team was very professional and helpful. It was nice to meet you when we came to Menaggio. I will try to send you some of our pictures. They all look like they are from postcards!! And yes you can use our comments however you wish. If we can ever be a reference for the property or Holiday Homes, we are happy to do so. Rest assured, I am telling all of our friends where to go in Como! You were all fantastic to work with!! Anyway, thanks for all of your help and look forward to our next interaction with Happy Holiday Homes.” Steve, UK – August 2017

What guests say about Villa Le Rose…

“We loved Villa Le Rose. The view was amazing, kitchen off the patio very convenient, and the rooms were great for our group of some couples some singles. We loved having the pool, and spent an entire afternoon swimming and enjoying the view of the lake. The team was very helpful once we could get in touch with them. The only difficulty on our part was we only had one or two people who had access to using their phone for calls. In retrospect, we should have planned to meet at a specific place and time to make this easier if calling did not work. The staff was great though, and allowed our bus to follow him up the hill so we could more conveniently access the house. He explained the wifi, where the nearest restaurants were, and made us feel comfortable. We took a boat ride across the lake, and had dinner in Bellagio. Both activities I would recommend to other visitors. Sorry I can’t remember the name of the restaurant!” Jennifer, USA – July 2017

“We had a lovely stay thank you so much for everything! Jennifer, UK – July 2017

“This is in fact a glowing review but must read this to the end ; )): We arrived exhausted from an overnight flight and long drive (Friday AM of a holiday so a 3 hour instead of 1 hour trip from Milan). Because of some (it turned out) very minor oversights in the staging (not removing the covers from the furniture or putting out the deck furniture) — and the usual difference between a home with the shutters drawn and a bright one with the shutters open — I admit that our first reaction wasn’t favorable. (I’d also broken my foot so the fact that there are lots of steps and gates — and I was there with my 75-year-old mother — wasn’t cheering me up.) We actually went back to the rental place immediately just to see if there were other options for us, largely because of the mobility issues but also because of my first impression. I cannot begin to explain how lovely and helpful the staff there were — the manager actually took me grocery shopping and drove back to the home with her colleague, and staged the entire place from start to finish, including asking for someone to mow the lawn (not something that bothered us). By that time I’d had lunch and coffee and when I returned, I saw how incredibly beautiful the place really was. I’m writing all this just to remind myself and any other travelers that sometimes the photos create one impression, the reality looks just a little smaller or darker or less fancy (it’s in fact, not at all a fancy house but perfectly nice), so that a tired traveler can then over-react to the difference. In fact, because of the light and view, this home does come to feel exactly as luxurious as pictured and five of us (ranging in age from 9 to 75) spent an entirely delightful week there. It’s worth noting that there were thunderstorms for two of our five days and two of us were mobility impaired so we spent a fair amount of the time the home. It really is beautiful and I feel I owe the owner an apology for my initial negative reaction. The property manager took incredible care of us, there are restaurants within walking distance (even on crutches ; )), Menaggio is a 5 minute drive away (presumably walkable if you’re not on crutches) and gorgeous, and not (even on a holiday weekend) overwhelmingly touristy, the food everywhere was incredible — and it was a short (and lovely) boat ride to Bellagio and Varenna once the storms cleared. I recommend it highly.” Sabeena, UK – June 2017

What guests say about Lake Como holiday Villa Fiordaliso…

“Villa Fiordaliso was beautiful. We had a wonderful stay at Lake Como and enjoyed the villa and pool very much. Thank you to the staff upon check in, Happy Holiday Homes staff drove up to the villa twice to show two parties in our group how to get there through the windy roads. The Villa was clean and very well cared for. The beds were comfortable and the villa was spacious and well appointed. When we arrived tired and hungry Happy Holiday Homes had left a nice welcome basket with supplies to make a nice dinner and some snacks. It was very appreciated. When we threw a breaker and were without electricity on the entire first floor at 10:30 PM during our stay. The emergency number for Happy Holiday Homes responded immediately and had the electricity back on within 20 minutes!!! Excellent service. We are from the US and had no problem at all getting through and communicating our problem. We will definitely stay with Happy Holiday Homes in the future.” Wendy, USA – July 2017

“We would like to thank you for very nice vacations on Como in Villa Fiordaliso. We enjoyed everything. Your colleague concierge Madam Elisa was very helpful during our stay.” Yulia, Russia

“We stayed at Villa Fiordaliso from June 17 to 24, 2017. The house was absolutely beautiful, and very comfortable, especially with the air conditioning. The view of Lake Como was spectacular. Since it was very hot, we made great use of the swimming pool. We visited Como and Bellagio by boat, and strolled through the gardens of Villa Carlotta. We ate at some nice restaurants, whose names I cannot remember; but we mostly ate our meals at the house, out on the beautiful patio. The staff was very friendly and pretty good at responding to our requests. We had a wonderful time at Villa Fiordaliso and would recommend both the villa and your services to others.” Debra, USA – June 2017

What guests say about Villa Acero…

“My family and I stayed here mid-June 2016 and had a fabulous time! The villa is exactly what the pictures show online so that was a relief when we first arrived – you won’t be disappointed! The villa is finished to a high standard, from the linen to the furnishings, and there is plenty of communal and private space for 8-10 adults, with each room having a toilet/shower. 2 of the family stayed in the smallest room which is designed for children but it was fine for them. The views are truly amazing and the pool is spot on – as already mentioned, exactly what the pictures portray. I doubt anyone would come to this villa and just want to sit by the pool everyday as there is so much to explore, but there are only 2 sun loungers and not loads of space around the pool to sunbath.
As the villa is on the side of a mountain, you do have to drive everywhere you want to go so bear this in mind. The villa is in a great location to get to all areas of the lake, including Como, but also drive/get the train to Milan. Lots of the villages nearby have ferry ports where you can get ferry’s to locations the other side such as Bellagio and Varenna.
Overall we had a fantastic time and the staff at happy holiday homes couldn’t have been more helpful leading up to our holiday and during. Loved Italy and Lake Como – highly recommend location and villa to anyone!” Emma, UK – June 2016

What guests say about Villa Lumbini …

“Beautiful! Wish we could have stayed longer, but we are planning a return trip next year!!” July 2017 – Natalie, UK

“We are back home from our glorious vacation in Como and Spain. Our family had a fabulous time together and we all agreed that our stay in the Lake Como area was the best of all! We loved the whole place – the mountains, the lake, the many tiny towns hugging the mountainside, the beautiful weather, the interesting and thrilling driving on your narrow, twisty roads, the lovely people, and of course, the fantastic food and cafes everywhere! We spent 4 lovely days exploring the little towns of Menaggio, Tremezzo, Cernobbio (which we loved), Como and also took the ferry to Bellagio and Varenna. We saw the M&C golf course and had our dad’s 80th birthday meal at La Baita, all ideas I got from the book I was reading by Harold’s friend, Roland Merullo, called the Italian Summer. It was hilarious and I enjoyed my stay all the more because of it. We also drove to Milan one day just to see the Duomo and do some sight seeing and it wasn’t difficult at all. The Villa Lumbini was perfect. There were 9 of us and we had room to spare. The open layout, bright and spacious with the central kitchen and the large balcony and garden were ideal for our large meals at breakfast and for lounging and relaxing at the end of the day. We were slightly worried one night when our neighbor threatened to call the carabinieri as we were probably getting a little too excited with our game of black jack in the balcony, fortified by some of your fine wines. So we moved inside and it was fine. The house is so new and spotless and we felt pampered by the space, the cavernous bathrooms, the fabulous views. We had only one glitch, our hot water supply was intermittent but George got his technicians to come in the middle of the night to help us out. Your people are lovely and helpful and very attentive to our needs. Harold, a big thank you for the EXTRA case of wines you sent to us. Congratulations on a fantastic operation you run. All in all, I would recommend the Villa Lumbini wholeheartedly to al. Enjoy!” Maria, USA
