Spacious clean villa
We had a lovely time there, very relaxing. Everything was as described if not better. The only comment I would make is that a car is an essential, and the drive to the villa is sound a stony bumpy track, however this does make for quite an interesting if a little bit jolty ride, especially at nite 😳 However some of the views skiing the way are really lovely. Would definitely consider coming back to this villa, thank you Chris & Sharon
A clean and well maintained villa with views of the eagles, but what an access road!!!
From our initial communications with the villa owners we felt at ease.
Upon arrival we were met with a miminal (appreciated) welcome pack. The villa/pool area was spotless.
There is an extensive information folder within the villa highlighting the local towns: it might be useful to highlight the facilities (e.g. the safe - in the broom closet) the villa offers.
One major point to note regarding Casa Como, is that the 'pin' in the location section of the listing is not accurate. We booked the villa believing that we would be able to walk into town for dinner. By the time we'd been given the actual location of the villa (after booking) we were unable to cancel the booking without financial penalty. We were aware that the villa was 'off road' (and based on earlier reviews had hired an SUV accordingly) but being so far away from civilization was not ideal and meant we aimed to be back before dark as the access road to the villa is unlit.
Regrettably, the beds were a massive let down, with thin mattresses and thin pillows on every bed. We even changed rooms with our daughter after 2 nights in an attempt to try and ensure a decent night's sleep, but failed.
As mentioned in earlier reviews that the pool is accessed by a rather steep slope linking the villa and the grounds below. Despite taking shoes and being careful, I did slip on the lip between the gravelled area and the slope, falling heavily onto the gravel causing significant bruising. A handrail down to the pool area might be a worthwhile investment to ensure no one experiences similar problems in the future.
The one maintenance issue that we did have with the villa was resolved within 30 minutes by the groundsman.
We've some lovely memories from our time in Casa Como but sadly this is not a villa we would look to return to in the future.
Had a lovely time at this Villa, the views are amazing. Loved the wrap around balcony, sitting there watching the birds. The ‘off road’ is a little bumpy, just take your time it’s worth it! From sunrise to sunset it’s just so relaxing.
Quiet retreat - must visit the lake!
We had a lovely time staying at the villa, and really enjoyed pedalos (only 20 euros for an hour) and swimming in the beautiful lake nearby. The pool was great for the kids but very cold! The extras of games and Xbox etc kept the kids busy when they needed a break from the sun. There are some good restaurants nearby and the peace and quiet at the villa was great.
The property manager was really helpful and very friendly, easy to get hold of via WhatsApp if needed. The owners were also very helpful answering questions etc prior to the holiday and when we made the booking.
The only other comment to add is that you have to walk down the outside of the house to the bottom level to get to the pool (which is also a pain if you've forgotten something upstairs!) Our children were old enough to be indoors while we enjoyed the sun, but this would not work so well with little ones, so this may be something to consider if you have younger children.
Overall, it is a lovely villa, we had everything we needed, felt very welcome (and well informed) and really enjoyed our stay!
Thank you for having us.
Just what we wanted
Peace and tranquility
Don’t let the track put you off. Just drive slowly and all is OK
The trip is worth it
