“A warm welcome in a beautiful setting”
Reviewed September 6, 2017 for a stay in August 2017

We were looking for a place that was right on the lake and we'd be able to self cater. We were hoping that this place would work well and it did.
Located about halfway between Como and Bellagio right on the Lake of Como (Lago di Como) this was a great location. Our villetta was well equipped for 2 with both a balcony and a patio area.
We were warmly welcomed by Jennifer and Eric who looked after us really well. The private jetty on the lake was perfect for swimming and the sunbathing area was also really nice. The development has a couple of Kayak's available for hire and Jennifer also arranged boat hire for us one afternoon. There are boats to Como and Bellagio a couple of times a day as well as a regular bus service although we'd also recommend car hire which meant we were easily able to get to Milan and one of the other lakes.
The only thing we'd warn about is that because the development is right on the lake it is a very steep slope from the road. The car park is about half way down and our car coped perfectly well with getting back up, and there is an outdoor lift from the car park to the lake level, which was out of order a couple of times while we were there but extremely useful (it was fine without it but just a bit steep)
We were able to completely self cater although we did chose to eat out a couple of times. The village has a couple of restaurants and a small shop for top up.
A lovely stay and we would come back, both for the beauty of Lake Como, the specific place and the warmth and kindness of our hosts.

“An outstanding location on Lake Como”
Reviewed September 1, 2016 for a stay in August 2016

person found this review helpful

This site is wonderfully situated right on Lake Como with a very attractive and useful lawn area, lounging platform (over the water) and jetty - all outstanding, particularly for children. The accommodation was clean and comfortable - a good size lounge with compact, well equipped kitchen, and a bedroom and bathroom accessed by a tight spiral staircase. The car park is down a very steep drive and the steps/lift from there can make for a challenging arrival and departure! The owner, Eric, is tremendously helpful and more than happy to assist with luggage, parking etcetera so that contact with him just prior to arrival is recommended.
We had a great holiday, largely thanks to the help, information and friendship provided by Eric. All very much appreciated!

“Terrific location to tour up and down Lake Como with gorgeous lake views”
Reviewed October 17, 2013 for a stay in October 2013

The Villa Mare villetta's are located right on the water with beautiful views across the lake. Pognano Lario is a charming area, with local grocery, restaurant and bar within easy walking of the villetta. Weather was changeable during our stay so we were unable to enjoy the beach area, which would have added to the charm of the setting. Eric and Robin were so easy to communicate with before and during our stay, including assistance to the train station for our departure. We were delighted with our stay at Villa Mare!
