“Absolutely wonderful”
Reviewed 2 August 2017 for a stay in July 2017

We spent 5 days in July, 2017 in the Da Vinci apartment and absolutely loved it. Villa Matilda is a beautiful old tower and this apartment on the 3rd floor has wonderful views of Lake Como, especially on its own terrace. My family of 6 occupied both this apartment (2 people) and the Michelangelo apartment on the 5th floor (4 people). It is beautifully decorated and well appointed. The terrace is a beautiful spot to relax in private and take in the spectacular view of the lake. However, as we were travelling as a family, most evenings were spent together on the larger terrace of the Michelangelo apartment.

Both apartments, the whole villa and grounds are just so well cared for by truly exemplary hosts. Tony and Shirley are delightful people. I communicated mainly with Tony and he was always prompt with replies, hugely informative and his advice on where to eat and places to go were always spot on. He also organised our transfers to and from the villa at very short notice. They are very accommodating and personable hosts. A nice touch is the welcome gift of some wine and groceries including some very tasty meats, cheese and fruit.

Torno has its own ferry stop so it was easy to get around the lake on the ferries which was itself a very nice way to see other towns. The walk, on the old Roman road that runs at the rear of the property, to and from the ferry takes around 10 minutes (slightly uphill on the way back).

We loved our holiday at Lake Como and it was made ever so special by Tony, Shirley and the beautiful Da Vinci apartment in Villa Matilda. We would definitely recommend this property to others and hope to return ourselves at some time in the future.

The Apartment -
The view from the living room, bedroom and terrace was unique and breath-taking. We feel lucky to have been there!
Stylish, comfortable, thorough and very well furnished appartment, with newly renovated kitchen and toilette. Couldnt ask for more!

Location -
Torno was a small charming town. The local groceries stores were walking distance and had everything we needed. Ferry station is only 5-7min walking.

Host -
Tony and his wife have been amazing hosts! Attentive to detail, they gave us very helpful tips and accurate information on the local restaurants, trails and activities.
They provided brochures and maps as well.
Caring and gracious they welcomed us to a classy appartment with a full fridge of exquisite groceries, including a bottle of wine and champagne for our honeymoon.
This couple definitely goes the extra-mile to ensure you feel "at home". They even gave us directions and suggestions for our next stop in Italy ;)

We hope to return sometime and certainly recommend to book this appartment to anyone willing to have an unforgetable stay in Lago Di Como!

“An Apartment in Paradise”
Reviewed 22 June 2017 for a stay in May 2017

From the moment we arrived at the Villa Matilda we were enchanted. The Davinci apartment had beautiful views from the living room and bedroom and from the patio that was about 12 steps up. The kitchen was well equipped and the bathroom amenities were also good. The apartment is beautifully decorated. Tony and Shirley, our hosts, have done everything to make sure your stay here is very comfortable. We would highly recommend their property.
