We travel to Lake Como yearly (or try to), the food is not your typical Italian cuisine, it’s the local fish from the Lake. No complaints from us, but we like to ensure we have a chef so that we can select the menu and wine. We like to shop for our wines or bring what we have collected along the way. This time we came from Tuscany in the harvest season mid September. Cool nights, great meals, Al Fresco dining it was perfect after boating all day. If you look at the photos of the Villa what you see is what you get, it’s amazing. How can we describe this place other than perfect in every way. If you are thinking of booking, just reserve! We didn’t want to have our photos published (since many people will recognize us in the US) – so here is a photo of your handsome and talented chef!
Thanks Giampiero and Christine, Salute to another great vacation planned!
The Villa Torno is unreal, every aspect of it perfect, from the moment you arrive at the front door you know you are in a special place, like none other you’ve every imagined. The Villa is directly on the lake, with a private pool that has a unique “button” that closes the pool and a stone floor closes the pool. This is perfect as we had small children and when we went out we closed the pool. If you like to boat you can rent a boat and leave it docked as we did. We also utilized the Ferry to cross the lake to the other towns. I especially loved this part of Lake Como because we so enjoyed the town of Lake Como and the shops, restaurants and town square. We dined in 5 of the 7 nights to an exquisite and actually very reasonable option, the chef is superb and the service great, but dining by this majestic Villa on the water…under the moon, no words can describe how special of an experience! We highly recommend this Villa to anyone who wants to experience the best part of Lake Como being in the town a short ride walk to the Ferry and dinner with the ability to not need a car. But if you do the Villa has parking as well. Thank you!!
I am so happy that we rented this Villa, everything you said was accurate and actually, we were “swept away” with the views and the beauty of the Villa. The position could not have been more perfect! We were able to walk about the town, to shops, restaurants on the water and the ferry is just a short stroll. The town is exquisite! We especially loved the size of the rooms and the bathroom were also perfect. I felt like I was royalty that week, it is a romantic Villa, every room has a view of the Lake. The sound of the waves gently softly was like constant serenity. The meals the chef prepared were delicious, his kindness added to the evenings and Antonia is very kind as well. I love Lake Como and can’t wait to return!
We enjoyed our two weeks at this Villa immensely, it was everything you said it was Christine and more! The pool and the location of the Villa were perfect. The ability of us to dock our boat at the Villa for the duration of the stay was very convenient and allowed us to explore the Villa. Dinners at the Villa were great and everyone had a great time. The rooms are huge and the bedrooms had great views! Thanks of much for all you did to ensure our stay was as enjoyable as it was. We will never forget this once in a lifetime family vacation in Paradise. You were correct, Lake Como is one of the most beautiful places and we will be returning there again no doubt!
Hello PVOI (Giampiero & Christine),
I wanted to reach out and say thanks for planning another great year at Villa Torno! We had a great time and loved it as much as the first time if not more. Many things bring us back to this Villa, the proximity to the town (you don’t need a car), the ability to dock the boat at the Villa and the luxurious villa itself, every room is beautifully decorated, the bathrooms are very large, we just love it. The chef and dining outdoor is another great part of this Lake Como experience. Antonia is a great housekeeper and she is always smiling. We can’t get enough of Lake Como, it’s a very special place that keeps calling us back year after year! Thanks for making our second year here at this Villa special!
