We absolutely loved Villa Simplicitas and just wish we could have stayed longer, the surroundings; building and company were so idyllic. Although we were the only guests, our hosts laid on a vast breakfast buffet for us, with superb home-made jams, fresh breads and pastries. We just wish we had been better organised and warned them in advance that we... More

We hiked for 12 hours to get to Villa Simplicitas and it was well worth it. When we arrived we were greeted with warmth, the cutest dogs and the most charmy room with a stunning view. Then we were served a four course home cooked meal in the glass restaurant with live music and candle light. Couldn't have asked for... More

The villa is situated in an idyllic sloping mountain meadow, surrounded by hundred years old chestnut trees and pine forest, high above the villages and busy world of lago di Como and lago di Lugano, offering bucolic tranquility and trekking opportunities. The smartly annexed winter garden and the front windows offer breathtaking panorama to the facing mountain peaks and the... More

Simplicitas is much more than the name implies. Situated high above Lake Como, within view, and Lake Lugano, you are immersed in green pastures under ancient sprawling Chestnuts. There were quite a few large Black Angus grazing nearby adding to the bucolic charm with the tingling of their bells. The 3-storey 19th century home is furnished authentically with many handsome...

It's not easy to find such a beautiful place like Simplicitas, really! Fantastic and huge green area in the mountains, very relaxing and romantic place. The house has a beautiful italian style, many vintage staff you can find inside, I felt like I'm home, not at the hotel! People who work there are very kind and attentive, for me it's... More

I have never had so many doubts on what to write about a place as this one. So here ones my opinion on when I think you will like it and when not. You will like this place - if you like old properties that have seen better times but have nevertheless kept their charm of earlier years - if... More

Surely one of the best places we stayed in northern Italy. This very little hotel (10 rooms in the Villa and another 5 or 6 in a "modern" dependance) has a very special atmosphere, in fact we felt more as we were visiting some distant relatives in their country house rather than some random guests in a hotel - thanks...

The hotel is nice but too expensive & deviates from the pictures as shown in advertisement. Staffs are cooperative. The place is noise but is ideal for travelers intended for shopping. AC is working but trouble with water temperature.

This was our 3d stay at Villa Simplicitas. The food was as fabulous as I remember, the location is nice, but the rooms need much work. We have stayed at many lovely inns and B&Bs, and I have come to expect a higher standard of care, cleanliness, and upkeep. Unfortunately, this will be the last time we’ll stay there.

We stayed for 2 days in mid May looking for something a little different in the hills rather than the lake side option. It is definitely value for money and our host Ulla was super making us feel welcome yet giving us enough privacy. It is a big old house and although not cutting edge and modern, it is clean,... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
In the lush green countryside in the heart of a valley which lies between Lake Como and Lake Lugano, at an altitude of 850 metres and at only one hour's distance from Milan, stands the Villa Simplicitas - a large nineteenth century residence. Renovated in 1981, the Villa has been transformed into a quaint hotel, surrounded by meadows and centuries-old chestnut trees. The sitting-room, with a large open-fireplace and a billiard room with a billiard table which dates back to when the house was built, are on the ground floor: the ten guest rooms have comfortable wrought iron and brass beds and bedsteads and antique furniture. The restaurant is also situated on the ground floor on a terrace with a spectacular panoramic view, illuminated in the gentle summer evenings by candlelight. The international cuisine includes also typical dishes and specialities from Lombardy. To enjoy the peace and tranquillity of the countryside, rambling around the fields and in the surrounding woods are a favourite pastime of our guests. Golf and tennis facilities are in the vicinity. Nearby horse lovers are also catered for with long rides in the woods and lessons for the less experienced. Due to the altitude and abundant vegetation, even during the warmest months of July and August, the evening brings a pleasant temperature which, together with silence, incredibly facilitates deep slumber. Our guest are from all over as well as Italian people who appreciate the rare amenities that the Villa Simplicitas is able to provide. Opening of restaurant in low season not always coincides with opening of the hotel. ... more   less
