This was a spontaneous stay sandwiched between a busy few weeks.
I knew it was good but wasn't prepared for how good it really was.
We had been to Lake Como many times and Villa D'Este was always my benchmark for quality.
I have now had to revise my thoughts and add another dimension.
It is absolute heaven and you do need to stay for more than 2 nights to appreciate its quality.
For example, I have a normal aversion to mini-bars in normal international chains and I avoid them like the plague.
It was only on the second day that I discovered that everything in the fridge was part of the tariff.
I found the service absolutely exceptional.
If we went anywhere, a staff member followed us (discretely) and asked if he could help in any way.
We wandered down to the lake and within seconds, one of the staff appeared.
He offered coffee and again ths was part of the tariff.
The lake itself is gorgeous and with only 21 rooms, you feel that you are almost on a tropical island by yourself - absolute paradise.
