“Perfecto Lago di Como”
Reviewed July 21, 2016 for a stay in July 2016

Beautiful home and grounds on the water with boathouse for rental boat; short cruise to first class waterfront restaurant and short walk to Argegno town square from house.

We plan on booking again for longer stay!

“Beautiful Location”
Reviewed July 15, 2016 for a stay in June 2016

This home is in a beautiful location on Lake Como. The views from every window are spectacular. It has a very nice patio and yard and the exterior of the house and grounds are very well kept.

It is very near to Argegno, a very small village where you can take the ferry to other destinations on the lake. There nearest large grocery store (there's a tiny, tiny place in Argegno) is about 20 minutes away by car. We brought provisions with us and ate lunch and dinner out so that wasn't a big deal for our group.

The interior of the home itself is spartan and utilitarian in amenities and luxury (as are many homes that are used for vacation rentals). We were only there for four days so we didn't take advantage of the boat rental or private chef.

Francesco, who is the property manager and son of the owner of the home is very friendly and his English is excellent. He was very helpful with suggestions.

“Beautiful Villa....amazing location”
Reviewed June 17, 2016 for a stay in June 2016

My wife and I went with friends and we all had an amazing short break at this beautiful villa located perfectly between Como and Bellagio! The boat and private dining on the terrace overlooking the lake are experiences not to be missed, thanks Francesco and Umberto! Highly recommend Villa La Ruga…………..will definitely be going back!

“Dream Villa with an unrivalled view...”
Reviewed June 16, 2016 for a stay in June 2016

The villa is just gorgeous... and the view is breathtaking. The grounds are just as striking - a garden, a boccie court, a boathouse... Francesco even provides enough breakfast to last your stay! He will arrange dinner for you or even a boat rental. You might never want to go home -- we didn't! The driveway is a bit tricky, but you do need a car. Walking into town is a bit treacherous. But after seeing the villa and the view, who needs to leave?

“Wonderful villa with breathtaking views”
Reviewed June 15, 2016 for a stay in May 2016

For a family looking to get away, this villa is the perfect place. Snuggled in a small cozy town, the residence is very charming. We especially liked the bocce court, as it can be enjoyed by all ages in the family. We had a boat pick us up right at the dock of the villa for 3-hour tour of the lake that we will never forget.

Liked best: Bocce court, mountain views, huge living room with lake view, proximity to town, proximity to neighboring towns by boat
Liked least: Note that the villa is located down a hill, so elderly folks may need additional time to walk into town.

“The Villa you dreamed about!”
Reviewed June 1, 2016 for a stay in May 2016

We were eight seniors from Arizona, and this was the best trip we have ever taken together. The Villa was more than we expected. Beautiful on the outside, and beautiful on the inside. The perfect location on Lake Como for the best views possible, and Francisco, the young owner, was the most accommodating landlord we have ever encountered. He is a lawyer by trade, yet somehow found the time to help us in any way we needed without hesitation.
We had a birthday dinner by the chef Francisco provided, and the meal he made for us was outstanding.
The little tow a few minutes walk has everything you could ask for available, and we spent a lot of time there.
The ferry boats form town, can take you to any part of th lake you wanted to see.
The area around the Villa is rather hilly, so for any seniors visiting, I would recommend renting a car to make the trips easier. Our group ranged in age from 65 to 82, in fairly good condition, and we had little problem getting around. The younger people will have no problem.
The Villa is a beautiful, magical place, and we would certainly go back again, and refer it to friends, and family. You can't go wrong here!
