“A Highlight”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 September 2013

Our Stay at Villa Le Ortensie will always be a favourite memory. Amazing views from our bedroom and Terraces, Everything I had hoped it would be. Chantal was so warm ,welcoming and helpful. The home cooked food was the best meals & best value we had in 2 months of travel across 11 countries. We drove to Molina the road is very narrow & windy. We Parked in the Parking lot at the bottom of the village, Then rang Chantal who promptly picked us up. Don't even try to drive right to the Villa, unless you have a moterbike. We only spoke English and Language was no problem. Next time I would stay longer and will certainly come back

We booked for 2 nights and stayed for 3. Our lake side view room was very comfortable, huge bed and large ensuite shower room. Each had a balcony with a fantastic view of Lake Como. Breakfast is fresh, plentiful and eggs cooked to order. Dinner is available too at v reasonable price and sll home cooking. We were so well looked after,it was sad to leave. Like staying in someone's home.

The view on the lake is wonderful ! We were so happy to discover it through our window. The situation is also nice, in a small village (15 minutes from Como). You can't access by car, which is not a problem because it also means the house is quiet. The terrasse is also beautiful.

The owners of the house were not there and the staff was not from the region and not enthusiastic at all. We really had the feeling we disturbed them when asking something. When you go the a B&B you are happy to talk with the owners and share some insider's tips!
We were a bit disappointed by the breakfast, the quality of the products was not as good as expected for the price. The furnitures and decoration are also very old fashioned (and you feel like in a "pension de famille" of a Balzac's novel...) All the guests were French and only French was spoken in the house, which is a bit weird when in Italy...

Conclusion : too expensive for the quality, lack of soul of the staff, but such a great house...

Distinct setting, authentic, plenty of character. The mastery and sophistication of Chantal, the lady who is hosting, managing the hotel and providing tasty meals - gives the place this extra special feel. We ended up returning for her dinner every night, preferring the warmth and dedication of that service, the Michelin star worthy cuisine and the atmosphere of the Le Ortensie lounge to eating outside. Very friendly chats to other guests were also vey pleasant. We would come again and would recommend it to a friend.

Wonderful B & B at the lake Como. They only have 4-5 rooms so be sure to book in advance. If you are looking for something different in a beatiful location high up overlooking Lake Como, dont hesitate to go there.

Very nice hotel with friendly staff. Be aware, you cannot drive your car along the lanes to the hotel as they are very narrow, but if you park your car in the main town and walk to the hotel, they will get one of the locals in a small car to drive you to collect your luagge. The town itself is about 20min drive from Como town and cannot really be accessed by public transport, so a car is necessary. Overall, its completely worth it once you get there. The views are stunning and the staff are excellent. Breakfast was also surprising, with fresh homemade cakes daily.
