Interaction with guests
We are available for any request of information our guests may need. In case of late check in communicated in advance we can leave the entrance key to our guests. We are very happy to give indications to organize any activity you may prefer and to show you the best places you may appreciate. If you need help we for a transfer to Como or other villages and places you can just ask us in advance and we can give you the contacts. We can also help you in case, in the good season, you may want to rent a motorboat for a tour of the lake and of the villas in the surroundings (the historical and unique Villa Pliniana, dated back to 1500, is just in front, on the other shore).
