I loved my stay at Villa Le Ortensie - beautiful views over the lake in a peaceful spot handily located between Como and Bellagio. Micky, Mose and Caroline were all fantastic hosts and went out of there way to provide me with tips and inside knowledge about the area which was so kind. Delicious home cooked food all round and plenty of it! I felt really relaxed in the Villa despite the Covid situation and the team had done a really good job of not making the experience feel sterile or impacted by overly strict restrictions.Thank you for a wonderful week in Faggeto Lario!

I highly recommend a hike suggested by Caroline starting by taking the funicular from Como to Bruante, then walking over Mount Bortello and back to Molina - stunning views on a clear day and a great opportunity to see the local area. I loved the sweet little town of Varenna and would say it is a must-see for visitors. Very unspoilt and charming old school style town with pretty shops, streets and cafes to explore.

Hi Rosie, So glad you enjoyed your stay with us and experienced many of the outdoor opportunities available on our doorstep. The hiking and lake swimming are wonderful and I'm glad you managed to escape the UK for the holiday you really needed. Hopefully you'll be back one day; bring your dad and you can tackle some of the really big hikes round here! All the best, Micky, Mose and Caroline

An Excellent place to stay away from large cities/towns. The views looking at Lake Como from the rooms are superb! Located above a small town with 2 places to eat and small shop/post office. Also plenty of car parking if you have a car. The hosts were very attentive and helpful. Overall a great location and a nice way to experience life in Italy.

Como is around a 20 min drive down the coast Bellagio is up the coast about 45 min drive, which has a ferry across to Varenna. A must see! You can go hiking from the Villa and also hire bikes from Bike It! Bellagio. There are several towns all along the coast which you could visit en-route to any location.
