Had a great time here and so will you as long as
1. You don't mind its NOT lakefront
2. You don't mind steps....414 from the lake to the road....395 from the road to the villa...and 43 to the front door ( not "about 15" as stated in the directions). I only counted them to distract myself . However , the views ARE fabulous.
3. You accept that Pognana Lario is a pretty basic village with limited restaurant and bar facilities....however locals are very friendly !
4. You understand that there are only 2 boats a day to and from Como and Bellagio.....so getting around can be a bit tricky . However the bus service is very good .Driving on these roads is obviously possible but not very relaxing .
The Lake Como area is fabulous and you're sure to enjoy it and there's lots to commend VIlla Gabriella ( nice place and fantastic views ) but just wanted to provide a little more balance to the gushing reviews you may have seen.....and would recommend it to others as long as they are aware of its shortcomings.More
