We caught the ferry to Lenno, and walked to the villa but it was a lot further than we thought and I totally wished we`d caught the boat which seems to go back and forth like a taxi.. (Better views from the sea also)

The little boat dock is down the the road a bit from the ferry dock and it just seems to come backwards and forwards.

There`s a ticket office at the boat dock

There are a number of reviews here that may be helpful

Right, the boat is the way to go. Just takes a few minutes and entering by water is nice. If possible, arrange to take the tour as the previous owner was quite an interesting man. The layout is quite unusual also, and it is relatively small with just a couple bedrooms. Perfectly tailored for the adventurous owner and really kind of cozy.
