Beautiful lakefront villa in Tremezzina
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Villa Vittoria, which is directly on Lake Como with spectacular views of the lake, particularly at sunrise. Silvia is a wonderful hostess who provided detailed directions to the parking area (something much appreciated by any American driving on the narrow roads in the region), where she met us and helped with our luggage. We were a group of seven and the villa easily accommodated us with its four, well appointed and spacious bedrooms, each with its own bathroom and lakeside view. In addition there are a large dining room and parlor (again facing the lake) and a complete kitchen including a dishwasher. We used the kitchen primarily to open wine bottles and cut up cheese, salami, coppacola and focaccia. Outside and directly on the lake there is a beautiful garden with chaises, chairs, picnic table and outdoor grill. The garden proved to be a great spot to enjoy wine and cheese at sunset. Silvia gave us access to her private dock, located in the adjoining villa, which is her private residence. If you can, take a private tour of the lake by motorboat. We recommend Lake Como Water Taxi. Thank you Mattia. Villa Vittoria is convenient to most Lake Como attractions. The ferry stop at Lenno is an easy walk. Mennagio, Bellagio and Varenna are easily reached by the ferry from Lenno. Villa dal Balbienelo, with its beautiful gardens is about a kilometer away, Another villa open to the public and worth a visit is Villa Carlotta about 1.5 km away or two stops on the ferry. Silvia was very attentive to all our needs, providing tips on restaurants and local events. On the day we arrived she made reservations for us at a local spot in Lenno, Santo Stefano. Thanks to her we got to see a spectacular air show over Varenna and visited the Orticolario, an annual flower and garden show held at Villa Erba every October. All in all we had a wonderful time at Villa Vittoria and would recommend it enthusiastically to anyone looking to spend some leisurely time on Lake Como.
