When you want to get away from it all, go to Villa d'Este. It has everything: impeccable grounds, magnificent buildings, spacious elegant rooms, a choice of fabulous restaurants, a lovely spa, indoor/outdoor pools, a gorgeous lakeside setting surrounded by mountains... pleasant and extremely helpful staff. There are multiple activies organized at the hotel, such as a boat tour of the Lake area. Cernobbio is a short walk away. Or simply sit by the pool with a book - a great place to recharge your batteries.
Totally separate from the hotel: if you want to sim in a lake, choose another location; we were warned against swimming in Lake Como, one of the deepest in Europe.
