“Cananova's Dream - a wonderful villa in a beautiful location - 5 stars”
Reviewed July 21, 2018 for a stay in July 2018

The villa is situated about a gentle 10 minute walk from centre of Lenno and the beautiful lake side. The villa is spacious with manicured gardens at front and back - all very private and quiet. Pool in rear garden is both large and very private. Villa was very clean and well presented. We were met by Chris, the caretaker, who was very helpful and attentive through the week - whilst we had the villa to ourselves, we knew Chris was just a text away if we need any advice or local knowledge. Villa has Sky TV (in English) and WIFI. It felt like a luxurious Italian home - our Italian castle for the week. We would definitely stay here again. Highly Recommended.

“Gorgeous house, private setting, but walking distance to everything”
Reviewed August 12, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

Villa Cassanova is a beautiful house, built in 1750, at once elegant and homey. The grounds are landscaped beautifully, with a dining table on a covered porch as well as a sitting area looking over the lawn. The bedrooms are large and airy, and the house has two master suites, one in the main house and one attached to the house but with its own entrance, which was perfect for our group of two families. The pool is beautiful and refreshing, set above the house in its own garden area. It was available for our use roughly from 9 to 6:30 (or later upon request) because the caretaker, who lives in the top floor of the house, cleans it daily and also uses it as his backyard when guests are not around. Chris, the caretaker, was helpful and available to answer questions, but also very respectful of our privacy.
The house has very large and private grounds, yet is quite close to the center of Lenno. We walked to the lakefront promenade every day (5-10 minutes) or to the grocery store and bank etc. (5 minutes in another direction). We could walk to the ferry to visit other towns around the lake (15-20 minutes). It was so lovely and convenient to have the benefit of a rural villa but right near to the center of a small but lively town. We would love to return someday.

“Italy, Lake Como and Villa Casanova, all made for a fanastic holiday”
Reviewed August 4, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

Children, their spouses and grandchildren (including a baby), 9 of us stayed at Villa Casanova for a week. It was our first visit to Lake Como and following extensive research Villa Casanova what just what I expected. It is centrally located in Lenno whilst at the same time being secluded within its own grounds.
The Villa is very old, has lots of character – this is not a euphemism! – is very well equipped and comfortable. The rooms are large enough for family gathering and numerous to afford the opportunity for quiet time. Outside the lawns were ideal for the children and the hammocks great for the adults. The pool provided a welcome opportunity to cool down and play. The patio dining area accommodated us all with ease resulting in many a late night enjoying BBQs and the finest Italian grape.
Chris, the manager was seldom seen but always on hand with advice and helpful hints.

“Incredible villa in one of the worlds most beautiful places”
Reviewed July 17, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

We had a week at Villa Casanova earlier this month with extended family and I would rate it as one of the best places I have stayed. The villa is just beautiful, very private and had more than enough space for 8 people to comfortably inhabit with treading on each other. The garden was exceptional and the pool was perfect to lounge around. Cris the manager was really helpful and we appreciated his local knowledge. Lenno is a beautful town and close enough to Como for an easy day visit to satisfy retail therapy requirements. I want to live here...cant get a better recommendation than that!

“Relaxed lake style”
Reviewed July 14, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

The villa was the perfect base to explore the surrounding area. We were travelling with a couple of kids and and couple of young adults and we'd all get together at the end of each day to have dinner al fresco during the long twilight. We spent many hours in the gardens which are beautiful and immaculately maintained. The weather was very hot while we were there so the pool was used pretty much constantly when we weren't out exploring. It is one of those gems that you happily recommend.

Villa Casanova was an excellent venue for our family group at the beginning of October- large, spacious, homely and full of character. We enjoyed our walk down to Lenno each day for the ferry, restaurants, Tuesday morning market and just to amble along the 'prom'.We sat in the peaceful garden each evening with views across the Lake and beyond. The villa kitchen was well supplied although an electric kettle would have been useful. Finding the villa without sat nav would have been difficult. Lake Como was a wonderful setting for my 60th birthday and staying at Villa Casanova was the icing on the cake!
