    In a wonderful setting with private lake access

    Villa Violino is located in the most coveted part of Lake Como: right on the lake shore between the famous Villa d´Este hotel in Cernobbio and George Clooney´s residence in Laglio. The villa overlooks directly the lake and is set in a beautiful landscaped garden, with a private dock, a private pool and a panoramic terrace with a stunning lake view. Its convenient location, just a few kilometres from Cernobbio and only 7 km (4,35 miles) from the centre of Como, as well as easy access to public transportation (bus stop is 150 metres from the villa; ferry pier is 400 metres distant), makes Villa Violino an ideal destination for touring Lake Como. From the villa's private dock, you can use a rental boat or the comfortable water-taxis to visit the famous Villa d´Este as well as the charming lake villages Menaggio, Bellagio and Tremezzo. Restaurants and shops are in walking distance. An 18-hole golf course is just 3 km away.

    The villa dates back to the beginning of the last century and still belongs to a noble Swiss family that coming on holiday to Lake Como fell in love with this beautiful landscape and decided to build their Italian holiday home on its shores. In 2008 Villa Violino has been completely renovated and carefully restored retaining many of its original features and balancing them harmoniously with modern comforts. The owners have tastefully furnished and embellished the décor with beautiful furnishings, fine tapestries and fabrics, paintings and period antiques.

    Outdoors, the garden and terrace are ideal for al fresco dining. The terrace (70 sqm) faces the lake and you can enjoy the view or sunbathe in privacy. A private pool and a Jacuzzi tub are located in the garden where guests also have a ping-pong table and table football. Lake access for swimming is also available. The lake road runs behind the villa and is a smaller road with no trucks. All of the bedrooms except one, living room and dining room face the lake, minimizing any noise. Guests can equally well relax at home or have easy access to all the sights of Lake Como.

    Our Guests Reviews

    Ciao Stefano,
    We had a fantastic time at your incredible villa. You were the best and most attentive host and we really appreciate your assistance with all aspects of our stay, especially the wedding. We are driving through Cinque Terre on our way to the airport. We will send photos when we get them!

    05-09-2016: Everything worked out perfectly!
    I wanted to send our sincere thanks for all you did to make our Villa holidays a great success. Everything worked out perfectly. The Villa is fabulous, Chef Debra is amazing and Stefano is as charming as he is dependable. He handled every request with a smile.
    Below is our Girl's Group - they truly loved it and it was their first Villa experience ever. I expect that they will be back for more.
    Many thanks, Carol 

    18-07-2015: We had a faboulous time
    House was excellent - we had a fabulous time
    - a hand rail to get in and out of the pool would have been helpful - it can be slippery
    - needs hand rails either side of entrances
    - lower buffers on the boat house - very difficult to avoid damage otherwise
    - web site said 10 steps in under pass - it's two lots of ten so 20 in all
    - would be helpful to let people take suitcases across the road into the first floor than down and up again - we did ask to leave that way and it was fine
    - the web site said cleaning at the end and a change of towels I'd way through - in fact someone came each day and that was brilliant
    These aren't really criticisms just observations
    We would go back there in a shot and may well do
    Thanks for all your help in arranging this

    Our proprietor Stephano was so helpful and really tried to make our visit as comfortable as can be. The common out side areas of the house were beautiful and the inside worked beautifully as well.
