My wife and I stayed in summer 2014 with my wife's Parents. Each couple had a double room with Lake view. We were very impressed with Villa le Ortensie.
If you are willing and open to experiencing Lago di Como in a traditional and romantic way then you will enjoy this Villa as much as us. The Villa itself and it's surroundings are untouched and if you put away your cellphone you really really could be in the 40s'/50s, there are no disturbing commercial elements and no noise from tourists or industry. You are perched in the highest Villa on the hillside with a stunning view over the lake, in the early mornings you may experience the play of light and clouds in the high mountains.
You will need to walk/hike a fair bit, you will need to take buses and boats to get around and you will need to immerse yourself in the local community, but isn't that what travelling to places like this is about ?.
The owner and his wife will do everything possible to make you comfortable, they kept in contact with us leading up to our arrival to help us organise travel, they picked us up from the village down below to take our luggage. They will not disturb you if you want peace but they will always be available if you need anything, a perfect balance of service and comfort. Please realise this is a stunning and mind-blowingly beautiful B&B with features that no other place in the world can offer. Do not expect a Luxury hotel with butlers, waiters and full-service tourist amenities.
I can whole-heardtedly recommend Villa Le Ortensie to anyone with an open-mind and a taste for the untouched beauty of the countryside and lakes of northern Italy. Thanks !.
