We've spent a week by end of July 2018 in Villa La Corte and I have to say it was EXCELLENT!!!
The pictures on the page show absolutely the reality! Sometimes you don't get what you see. But here: The garden was green and well groomed, the plants in top shape, the Pool absolutely clean and really big :-) The House inside is top comfortable and you have all you need. There is a lot of space. We were 2 Families and were top relaxed all the time. Just 10 Minutes walking Distance to the Lake Como with clear water. If you want to go by car there are lots of parking places (drive down to the Lake, don't take the upper parke place, there are only about 20 places). To the center and Fuentes only 7-10 Minutes by car. Nice market on Friday. Actually we also want to go for Horse riding, but it was too hot (we had the record Summer 2018 :-)). But we were checking out the Ranch and it's highly recommandaeble. For hores lovers a Must. We also recommend to to a Boat Trip until Bellagio.
We are already checking with our employers if we can have again Holidays together that we can spend there another week next Year.
Claudia and Beppe are truely friendly people. Within max. 10 Minutes they responded to our questions. For example we were looking for a Pizza Taxi. After 30 Minutes we were eating it because Claudia took care of the order (she found a Pizzeria which delivered while they were closed :-). They live next door and you can be sure to get a smile if you see them
For everybody who is thinking about to rent it: GO FOR IT :-)
Thank you so much Claudia and Beppe!!!
Have a great time
Nina with Family
Villa La Corte in Colico is unique in many senses: The huge and perfectly maintained garten gives you the feeling of living in your own park. We found the house very comfortable, well equipped and kept, quiet and... perfectly cleaned. And, first and foremost, the hosts Claudia and Giuseppe spared no effort to make our stay a unique experience. Perfect!
We have just returned from a fabulous and relaxing holiday in Colico. Claudia and Beppe were incredibly helpful and welcoming. They kept in touch and kept us informed from the moment of booking.
The villa is gorgeous, spaceous and comfortable: prefect for a stay with the family. My children loved the pool; and the views of the mountains and quaint church from the garden are spectacular. There are plenty of earing spaces inside and out and a fully functional modern kitchen.
We found all the places we wanted to see such as Bellano, Varenna, Abbazia di Piona and Castello di Vezio are all short drives from the Villa. There is a ferry port that travels daily to Bellagio stopping at all the ports on route. Piona train station is a short walk as is Baia di Piona. We enjoyed Lido di Colico and the water sports equipment that can be hired.
There is a large shopping mall and supermarket where we stocked up for the week, but also a bakery and small shop within walking distance from the villa.
The area is quiet and suitable for young children. There is a slide and swing in the garden. Children who cannot swim will need swimming aides in the pool as it is all one depth (the pool is not fenced), this was not a concern for our children.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, and I recommend, if holidaying in Colico or planning to visit the surrounding sites, staying at Villa la Corte.
We couldn't have chosen a better villa for our 2 week holiday and my wife's 50th birthday. The owners, Claudia and Beppe were very welcoming to both us and our Labrador dog Sophie. They were extremely helpful and accomodating when needing advice or guidance and were 'always' reachable if and when necessary.
On arrival we were greeted with a welcome hamper with some very delicious goodies which we throughly enjoyed. On the whole, the villa was well stocked with everything we would possibly need to start off our peaceful and tranquil holiday. On the morning of my wife's birthday she received some beautifully presented handmade biscuits from Claudia and Beppe, which I have to say were very delicious! It such a lovely gesture, which was very much appreciated.
The villa is tastefully decorated and was meticulously clean.
Through the sliding doors at the back of the property you are presented with beautiful maintained landscaped gardens, an enticing pool and breathtaking views of the mountains. Which we took in on many a night whilst enjoying our BBQ food and a glass of wine.
The restaurants, cafes and a large supermarket are all within short distances by car.
We would definitely recommend this beautifully presented villa
This is an exceptional property with a backdrop of spectacular mountains yet close to beautiful Lake Como.
The house is new, spotlessly clean and tastefully decorated. It is equipped to a high standard, with everything provided, and the star of the show, accessed through sliding doors, is a huge landscaped garden with attractive plants, lovely pool, play equipment for children, stone barbecue, grass for youngsters to run about on, and two separate paved areas with dining tables for eating al fresco. The one under cover is great for shade or shelter.
Colico is at the top end of the lake and refreshingly spared the swarms of seasonal tourists. Yet it has attractive waterfront restaurants, cafes and all important ice cream shops. The centre is five minutes' drive from the property and a huge shopping centre with giant supermarket to meet every need is the same again.
It has daily ferry sailings for outings down the lake to more famous resorts like Bellagio and Varenna, with trains an alternative option depending on your choice. But, like many guests, we are told, if the weather was sunny, we tended not to stray far from the magnificent garden.
The hosts are lovely people who could not be more welcoming or helpful, providing extra high chairs and cots for young children, laying on wine, food and treats for our arrival, and arriving with a tray of cakes for a guest's birthday.
Would certainly recommend this beautiful property.
