This stroll took us through citrus walkways, a bamboo forest, beautiful colourful planting, a cactus garden and past a pool of terrapins! The house had some beautiful artefacts and... More

Villa Carlotta is quite close to The Grand Hotel, Caddenabia, Lake Como, being a short walk away. it has magnificent grounds and a wonderful house. Remember to take your National Trust card with you and you will get a 12 lire reduction. I had mine, but my sister didn't.

We arrived at about 12 lunch time – an excellent time to go as there were very few people there - I guess a lot of them were having lunch somewhere as it did get busier later on. We had a quick look round the house ( nice)... More

Went past this beautiful villa on the boat from Como to Bellagio . From the water it was magnificent and on the way back by car we could see how well maintained it was. A standout on an amazing area

The Villa is beautifully furnished, but I think the gardens are the star attraction. They are terraced and have many lovely plants, trees and flowers. It is situated right on the shore of lake Como, and is easily reached by ferries, and buses.Remember to take water with you as in the heat , you will need it as you walk... More

The villa is beautiful both inside and outside. The art is amazing and the gardens are a joy to walk through. The price is good at 9 eur per person. If you are in the area, you must see it.
