“Home away from home”

My best friend and I needed a short and relaxing break and chose to go to Lake Como for a weekend away. Villa Matilda was the perfect solution. Tony was a wonderful host, picked us up from the train station, gave us local insight, provided a fantastic range of wines for us to choose from, set us up at a local restaurant for dinner. It was absolutely perfect. We will be back for sure. It was such a great experience and although short we felt relaxed and like we truly experienced Italian culture. Thanks Tony!

“A Once in a Lifetime Experience”
Reviewed August 12, 2017 for a stay in July 2017

person found this review helpful

We booked our reservation based on a recommendation. The first day was so incredible, we cancelled out next two days in Sienna, Italy and decided to stay two more. The owner, Tony Cardenali, is very courteous and accommodating, without being intrusive, as well as informative of the what to do and where to go in the Lake Como community.

The apartment itself is decorated in the style of Como and the history of the villa. Everything was comfortable and exceedingly clean. Your apartment is equipped with food and drink to begin your stay. The villa has a pool if you want to just hang out and the view from the apartment is breathtaking.

My husband and I hope to visit again and we highly recommend this property.

“Idyllic Lake Como Castle”
Reviewed August 2, 2017 for a stay in July 2017

My wife and I recently spent 4 nights in at Villa Matilda and could not have been happier with our stay. We expected there to be charm in a Renaissance-era castle, but it still exceeded our expectations. The building offers breathtaking hilltop views of Lake Como and the old town of Torno (just a short drive/ferry from Como town), both from our suite and from the swimming pool area. Our suite was large, clean and comfortable and had everything we needed for our trip. It proved to be a great base for exploring the area, as well as a good place to relax and unwind. Tony and Shirley (the Owners, who live on-site) were impeccable hosts that not only were consistently checking in to make sure we had everything we needed (including making dinner reservations for us), but they also ensured our fridge was fully loaded with essentials when we arrived. Tony even drove us to the train station! We enthusiastically recommend a stay here and we look forward to doing so again in the future.

“Idyllic”

Stayed for four nights in October, regretted not staying for longer! We had the most enjoyable stay with the Villa offering everything you need and more. We arrived late in the evening on our first night so too late to go out for something to eat. However Tony and Shirley had supplied the villa with a large variation of food which was greatly appreciated. Right through our stay Tony and Shirley could not have done enough to help us have a great holiday. As for Lake Como, just stunning! We can not wait to go back.

“Fabulous hospitality”
Reviewed September 13, 2016 for a stay in September 2016

We stayed in the Julietta apartment at Villa Matilda for the first week of August at the end of a three week Italian tour.
Villa Matilda has been beautifully renovated by its owners Tony and Shirley Cardinali.
The apartment has fabulous views up and down the lake making it a total pleasure to open the blinds every morning, having slept the night through in the the worlds most comfortable bed!
Lovely though all this is, the best thing about Villa Mathilda are the hosts Tony and Shirley. On the evening we arrived, along with other guests we were treated to drinks and a feast of local cheeses, salami, prosciutto, truffle honey, stuffed tomatoes and fruit.
Tony is a mine of information about all things Torno and offers practical help in booking restaurants etc
All in all Villa Mathilda is a fabulous place to stay, made better by Tony and Shirley's warmth and generosity....book now!
