"Peaceful and Relaxing !!"
We have now stayed at Villetta Roccolo twice, once during a cold winter and once during a lovely summer and on both occassions we had a lovely time. The house is perfectly equipped, the setting is very private and quiet and the back garden provides the most amazing view over Lake Como, to the north and the east, without the crowds !!!

A fabulous house with the most amazing garden and simply stunning views. This house cannot disappoint. Excellent walking from the doorstep and a fairly remote location make this ideal for a peaceful, relaxing holiday.
