“Great house for 8”
Reviewed 16 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016

Villa Poletti is beautiful, with great views of Lake Como. We were there with our kids and in-laws and had a wonderful time. The house is about a 20-25 minute walk from Bellagio, a beautiful town right on the water. ( The walk itself is a bit of an adventure, as you walk on a narrow, winding road with not much room on the sides.) The house is very well stocked, and the owners provide much useful information about restaurants and activities in the region. The agent, Monica, is also very helpful. The best thing I can say is that it looks like the pictures.

“Perfect In Every Way”
Reviewed 19 July 2016 for a stay in June 2016

person found this review helpful

Villa Poletti certainly lived up to its reputation. It was the perfect place to stay for a week, and the spaciousness of the villa allowed us to relax. My only regret is that we didn't have two weeks there.

Some particulars about the home. It is located 1 mile from Bellagio center, but it is on the bus route and has a bus stop almost outside the front door. The bus runs regularly and on time (mostly). The main level has a beautiful view of Lake Como from the terrace and Living Room, which seats 6 people comfortably. The dining table seats 8. The kitchen was adequate, with all the essentials for daily cooking. The only thing it lacked was a proper rolling pin (the one there had a long crack), and sharp knives. Otherwise, I was able to cook anything we wanted. Incidentally, there are 2 grocery stores within 1 mile, so supplies are right at hand. There is a full bath on the main level.

The second floor has three bedrooms. Two overlook Lake Como, with the third on the street side. One is a suite; the other 2 share a bathroom. They are all spacious. The third floor has an apartment with its own small kitchen, Living Room bedroom and bathroom. It is also spacious. My daughter thought she was in Heaven with her own place away from the other kids.The "apartment" is just up the stairs. The furniture throughout is very nice and comfortable. The church bell in San Giovanni plays music daily.

We spent two weeks in Italy and Switzerland, but the time at Villa Poletti was the only time I would say I relaxed. Everywhere else we were forced to stay in three different hotel rooms, which meant we had no common areas to interact. We were also forced to eat in restaurants for every meal. The advantage Villa Poletti has is that you can have the refrigerator and pantry stocked before you arrive and have food for breakfasts (with espresso/cappuccino) and snacks. I also cooked several dinners there. It was so perfect to sit at the dining table on the terrace and enjoy the sunset views of the lake. We could also go out to dinner when we wanted, and weren't limited to the overpriced restaurants in Bellagio.

We rented a car because it's hard to get bus and ferry schedules to coincide. If you take the bus you might have to catch the 8:22 am bus for a 9:15 ferry, meaning you spend nearly an hour at the ferry station waiting. The bus only comes every 1 1/2 hours or so. Parking isn't plentiful in Bellagio, but it seemed sufficient, especially if you get there early in the day.

“Perfect Stay at Villa Poletti”
Reviewed 24 October 2015 for a stay in September 2015

What a fitting way to conclude a 3 week tour of Italy! It was a perfect retreat after weeks of heavy travel--relaxing under lofty ceilings, viewing the beautiful grounds and enjoying amazing lake views. The villa has every modern comfort you could hope for and is impeccably decorated with stunning artwork and antique furnishings. The kitchen is well-equipped, and includes an easy-to-use espresso machine that made great coffee--we loved waking up to the spectacular lake view and having coffee and playing backgammon on the terrace. It is close enough to walk to some local attractions, and a short taxi ride gets you to everything else local. Pay attention to the house recommendations for dining out and getting around--they are spot on! We would feel blessed to make it back here again!

“A Palace on the Lake”
Reviewed 17 October 2015 for a stay in May 2015

We stayed (4 of us) at Villa Poletti for three nights in May 2015. This home is more of a mansion with beautiful antique furnishings that were comfortable. We were welcomed by the home's manager, she is delightful, thorough, accommodating, fluent in several languages. The fruit bowl was full and a bottle of wine awaited us. The amenities such as the kitchen, satellite TV, WIFI, AC, laundry, and a beautiful setting made this stay wonderful. This was the end of a two week trip, we used this retreat on Lake Como as a restful and refreshing stop before we returned home. The town of Bellagio is walking distance as are many restaurants and shops. The grounds are manicured and peaceful. We cooked breakfasts and a dinner at the home and were never short an appliance or utensil. An added surprise included a fireworks show over Lake Como on our first night. It capped a wonderful vacation...and the view just kept on getting better!
