“Stunning Views, Beautiful Weather, Excellent Quality of Life”
Reviewed 4 November 2014 for a stay in September 2014

I went to Villa Rustica this September with 5 adult friends for my birthday, looking forward to a week of relaxation and good eating. What a fabulous place! We were totally over excited by the views on arrival, scampering straight down to the lake which was slightly difficult terrain but well worth the end result; an expanse of sun warmed rock on the edge of the nature reserve lake, full of swans and wildlife with a waterfall just round the corner which you could swim to on a warm day, or canoe to with a little picnic, which we did on about day 4.

We very much enjoyed the local trattoria, pizzeria and the restaurants by the lake in Colico, but mostly we plundered the local supermarkets for fresh Italian ingredients and spent time whipping up tasty morsels in the big, well equipped kitchen or cooking up a storm on the stone BBQ in the garden. We ate outside most days, in the kitchen for snacks and in the original stone clad basement, surrounded by candlelight for one slap up meal and game of Trivial Pursuit.

There was plenty to do in the local area, we hired a boat for the day to go exploring down to Como. We drove up to St Moritz for the day and wished we had taken some woollens – the hot hot hot September weather lulling us into a false sense of summer. We got the ferry over to Bellagio for the day and hiked up the narrow lanes for shopping delights and gourmet gelatoria treats, we got the funicular from Como and relaxed by the river watching the boats come and go and enjoying some excellent vongole.

All in all, we had a fabulous time. We were completely spoilt by the hot weather, unexpected in late September and luxuriated in the isolated location, the unspoilt natural surroundings and friendly neighbours and helpful managers made the stay easy.
We are all hoping to visit again during the winter for the easy access to great skiing, though in the winter I think we’ll be getting a 4x4 to tackle the access roads!
