Perhaps a once in a lifetime chance but I was lucky enough to visit and have an impeccable experience at the Villa d'Este. A step back in time in many ways with old school Italian charm, style and service that delivers perfection. Not what I can call good value for money as it

Purple velvet, cream-colored marble, wide view over deep blue water, the scent of flowers, bougainvilla, smooth hills. Italian lifestyle, as beautiful as can be - on the shores of Lake Como. We literally have to tear ourselves away from our suite with this magnificent view of

Nothing can be faulted about this hotel, we were given a room to rest in off our transatlantic flight while our room was being prepared, our room was immaculate, and the grounds are beautiful. My only negative, is concierge service. We were sent to restaurants which only had

Hello - do we need to bring our own tennis rackets or will the hotel provide?
To be completely honest, I don't play tennis, so I don't know.

We would like to take a train from Venice. What station do we go to in Lake Como?
The train system in Italy is a fun way to travel and you will most likely remember the journey to your destination. You could arrange for Villa d’Este to pick you up from the station in Como as we took a taxi but they were really busy so the wait was a bit (too) long. Como is only five km or so from the hotel. We walked in to Como one day from the hotel!
