Reviews

“I would love to tell you of our wonderful experience at Villa Chicca. The house was just as I had thought it would be from your photos. It’s position on the lake was unique. We were there with all my family to celebrate my 70th birthday and the special dinner cooked and served at the house was delicious and great fun. We went to Bellagio at the beginning of the week to meet my sister and her husband who had come on the train from Milan to Varenna and then the ferry to Bellagio. We found Bellagio very crowded with tourists so we spent the rest of the week at our quiet beautiful sanctuary in Lezzeno. We went to The Stonehouse Restaurant which we enjoyed. We also went to the Hotel Aurora Restaurant quite a few times and we used their water sport facilities. The kids really enjoyed wake boarding! The Hotel was lovely and we enjoyed also their takeaway pizzas. The village of Lezzeno was perfect for us. The only problem we had was when we arrived. We had no food and the shops were closed. There was no welcome pack at the house. I do think you should give out the food shop opening hours so we could have organised ourselves better. Particularly arriving on Saturday evening with Sunday village shops closed all day. But that didn’t stop us from organising pizzas from Hotel Aurora to eat on the villa’s fabulous terrace just looking at the exquisite view. I thought the whole holiday was magical. I will send separately my favourite photos.” Diana, UK – August 2016

Reviews

“This home is amazing in every way: location, amenities, space, and layout. As beautiful as the photos are, they can’t possible do this gorgeous home and location justice. We were three couples and particularly loved the layout (3 bedrooms that each have their own en-suite bathroom). It exceeded all expectations and our host was generous, helpful, and supportive throughout our stay.” Kerry, UK – September 2018.

“Villa Anna was a lovely villa to stay in. The property was in a picturesque quiet town just before ossuccio. The host was very attentive and answered all questions that we asked. The property was very comfortable for 4 adults and 3 children.” Rob, USA – July 2018

“Thank you for all your help and support both before and during our visit to Como. Your team is awesome! Villa Anna is a beautiful home in a perfect location. We enjoyed the pool and swimming in the Lake which we did every day. The weather was perfect from late August to early September while we were there. We also really enjoyed renting a boat and viewing the Lake at our own pace. Your team, especially Danillo, helped us arrange everything and gave great advice on hikes, restaurants and parking during our day in Milan. We also appreciated your recommendation to have a chef prepare dinner for us at the house on our first evening. Diego was great and it was the perfect start to our week in Como. He picked some excellent local wines for us too! We really enjoyed having dinner at Locando dell’Isola – we were able to take our boat there for the 2 minute ride and also took the boat to lunch at Villa D’Esti. It was so easy to dock the boat in both places. We also visited Verenna and Bellagio and would highly recommend both towns. Danillo also helped arrange a water taxi for our day in Bellagio – the taxi picked us up from our dock at Villa Anna and returned us there at the end of the day. No better way to travel! Another great day included a walk to Villa Balbianello, which was a great workout, and then a short walk into Lenno for lunch at Ristorante Plinio. Villa Balbianello is a beautiful home in a perfect location on the lake. We toured the amazing gardens and had a very nice tour of this unique home. The lunch was also terrific and since we were walking back to the Villa, we didn’t feel too guilty. We would certainly use your service when we return and will also recommend you to anyone who is interested in visiting the lake region.” Denise

Reviews

“Everything was great , magic view, great pool, perfect location ! Gerd, Germany – July 2018

“We had a perfect stay of 4 days in Casa die Galli! Together with my friends (total of 8). We enjoyed the house with the breath-taking view on the lake! Relaxing by the pool, with comfortable sunbeds, enjoying the garden and discovering the surroundings. The restaurant across the road serves wonderful food and at the bakery (on walking distance) you can get fresh bread. The full equipped house provides everything you need for a perfect stay, including very good beds for 8 persons.We all would love to come again!” Yvonne

“We had a great long weekend at the Casa dei Galli with a magnificent view at Lake Como. A beautiful decorated house with plenty of room inside and outside. We especially loved the pool from which you can see the lake. The small Italian villages nearby are also worth visiting!” Anonymous

What guests say…

“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

The Area

Restaurant at 350 meters | The house is located in the hamlet of Cima, 350 meters from a restaurant and 500 meters from a boat rental service. Cima is a small, picturesque village with a medieval structure and remains of ancient walls and fortifications.

Porlezza | The village of Porlezza is just a 5-minute drive away. This is a quiet village most of the year and turns into a cosy tourist town in the summer but without mass tourism. In August, the annual San Rocco celebration takes place in Porlezza with fireworks over Lake Lugano. Porlezza also has some interesting sights to visit such as the thirteenth century Romanesque church of San Michele with frescoes from the Last Supper and the church of San Vittore il Moro with eighteenth-century frescoes by Giulio Quaglio di Laino.

Lake & amp; caves | Lake Lugano is surrounded by a green mountain landscape, ideal for trekking and hiking trips. Nature lovers will also love the Lago di Piano nature reserve and the caves of Rescia with suggestive stalactites and stalagmites.

Lake Como | Lake Como is only 15 kilometres away and has elegant villas, romantic gardens and picturesque towns to for memorable day trips.

Milan | Milan is a 1,5-hour drive away and can also be easily reached by train from Como’s San Giovanni railway station. In Milan, you can go luxury shopping for days but even better are the famous Last Supper by Leonardo Da Vinci, the Duomo with spectacular views from the roof and Castello Sforzesco (don’t forget to book your tickets beforehand).

What guests say…

“The house at the lake was a great choice for us (9 people). A lot of space. Direct Access to the lake was super! Its not a super luxury House but The house is kept well and was clean. If I had questions to the Owners i got help very quickly! I would recommend this House to others any time. Thank you for this lovely stay. Lalaskus, Switzerland – August 2016

“Well we did indeed have a very happy holiday at Villa L’Approdo. Our main intention was to relax, swim and fish and this villa provided us with all of that + wonderful views and a good standard of comfort. We immediately appreciated the fact that gaining access to the water’s edge on the lakes is not so simple and therefore to have our own little beach was a true bonus. As some of our party was keen to fish, we were glad to be able to do that from our garden, as well as have barbecues,. The welcome basket of goodies was a particularly nice touch and our younger, hungry travellers set upon it immediately. Thank you. All communication with your team in the office was prompt, helpful, friendly and accurate. The village of Cima is charming and we used the local shop, bakery and a couple of the bars. There is a small one-roomed bar which apparently will not allow ladies in! Otherwise we shopped in Porlezza and were amazed at the number of supermarkets and other shops. The Tourist Information guy was helpful, we purchased fishing licences in the post office and were easily able to get hold of fishing bait. The walk in to Porlezza along the busy road does not have pavements for most of the way so it didn’t feel terribly safe. But in Porlezza we had the best ice cream imaginable in– Visconti Gelateria close to the lakefront and enjoyed great pizza in Pizza Pronto. On Saturday morning we strolled through the market and although the fresh foods were wonderful, it was an expensive experience compared to the supermarket shopping. Lovely, lovely people. Our best experience was hiring motor boats on Como for 2 hours and admiring the villas of the rich & famous, choosing the one we’d buy when we win the jackpot and jumping in the water for a refreshing swim. We visited Lugano but this certainly did not represent a highlight of the trip – it’s a pleasant enough Swiss city but without the Italian charm. Our holiday was very enjoyable and the villa is located in a scenic part of Italy. Unfortunately I am not in a position to think about buying a villa of my own but am certainly thinking about returning to the lakes for a future holiday. Thank you so much for making it all happen. Anna, Czech Republic – June 2016

“We had an excellent holiday! The house was perfect for our two families, and the garden was great! We had no trouble finding the property, and the only negative issue we had was that the property was quit close to the road with quit heavy traffic. We contacted the office a couple of times (trouble with hot-water, dishwasher and swimming-facilities). Prompt response every time, and all solved to our satisfaction! La Taverna: Great service! Great pizza! We enjoyed take-away pizza several times during our stay, and we also had our final meal the last day at the restaurant. Jhonny’s Marked: Everything we needed for breakfast (and some dinners)! Great meat, hams, salamis etc! 🙂 Most of our main shopping were done at the supermarkeds in Porlezza. La Terrazza: Great service! Great food! Great view! Thank you for a great holiday!” Morten ”

What guests say…

“Our stay at Vista D’ORO was great. Thank you to the staff at Holiday Homes for answering our questions and helping us when we arrived. The apartment view was extraordinary and we enjoyed eating our breakfast on the terrace every day viewing the lake and towns. When we came back at night we sat on the terrace and marveled at the view. The apartment was spacious and perfect for the two of us. Your directions with photos prior to our departure were extremely helpful.” Haig, UK – August 2018

“Very nice apartment. Clean and with good facitlites. Master bedroom good size. Other bedroom a bit small for two people. The best part was the terrace. Stunning lake view and lots of space to chill out. Nice and peaceful area – you hear more birds singing than cars driving past. The apartment is on the hill and a car is almost a must to explore the villages and the lake. We had a fantastic stay and would go back :)” Eydun, Denmark – June 2018

“The pictures are not deceiving – the view really is that amazing! Quick and helpful responses from the agent. A fair & steep walk to the town so best option is to drive. I would recommend the apartment and happily stay there again.” Claire, UK – September 2017
