Absolutely amazing place! It's not an exaggeration to say that you unexpectedly find yourself in the middle of real vital energy source that fills you up with inspiration and incredible emotions. Fantastic views, unique atmosphere, I really can't stop smiling writing this review - all our family enjoyed the days at the villa much and will remember it forever! Thank you, Francesco!

“Francesco is Fantastic as is Villa La Ruga!”
Reviewed October 6, 2017 for a stay in September 2017

We were 3 couples celebrating our 50th wedding anniversaries. We were looking for something special and we found it in Villa La Ruga.
We cannot say enough about Francesco, the owner. He did everthing in his power to make our stay something extra.
We were picked up at the airport in Milan and greeted by Francesco on our arrival.
The Villa is situated right on the edge of Lake Como and has fabulous views in every direction. The villa was well equipped and comfortable. We swam right of the shore and enjoyed meals at home by wonderful cooks that Francesco arranged. He also organized a wine tour to the Valtellina which is not to be missed.
It is an easy walk into the village of Argegno were you can enjoy village life. Good restaurants, cafes and the best gellato we found anywhere.
The ferries stop right at the village square and you can travel anywhere on the lake from there.
We thoroughly enjoyed or week at Villa La Ruga and meeting Francesco. He made the experience truly remarkable.
Thank you Francesco! Your Villa and country are beautiful!

“Villa la Ruga is Heaven on Earth”

I can go on and on about how much we loved this house, it was pure perfection. The house itself is extremely spacious, but full of charm. (Pictures do NO justice to how incredible this villa is) The outside area is the most beautiful place I have ever seen. We had a group of 7 people stay here with PLENTY of room for all of us. It's comfortable, quiet and blissful. Our only wish is that we had stayed longer. The owner, Francesco, handled every detail from a private van to and from the train station, recommendations for activities and helped with reservations for dinner and a boat. He had printed lists on how to work things around the house and menus for local restaurants. We are already planning a trip to come back. It is the perfect home for family vacations or a romantic getaway.

“Couldn't have been better!”
Reviewed September 23, 2017 for a stay in September 2017

Superb property. The outdoor area is even more beautiful than the picture. We had four couples staying at the property which worked fine for us. If everyone wants their own bathroom then go with three couples. The inside had lots of room, enough to accommodate 8 of us without an issue. I can't say enough about Francesco (the owner). He was easy to get a hold of and he responded to all of my inquiries quickly. He was able to get us drivers from where we were staying in Lugano to the house and then to the train station in Como with no problems. I would highly recommend this property. You won't regret your decision.

“Cheshire Cat”
Reviewed September 19, 2017 for a stay in September 2017

person found this review helpful

I booked the villa many months ahead of our visit but from the outset Francesco was in communication to ensure he was able to assist with our requirements. Just as helpful when we actually arrived and a host who truly understands the benefits of superlative customer service and going the extra mile. Beautiful fruits and cereals and Prosecco left for us on our arrival. However, I have called this review Cheshire Cat because when we walked through the front door of the Villa and saw the view through the windows, we could not wipe the smile off our faces. It is one of the most stunning locations I have stayed at and I will definitely return with my family. Easy walk into the town for restaurants but just as enjoyable to cook at home and soak in the views. Truly wonderful.

“Magical”

Location location! Words cannot describe the beauty of this Villa. A more accommodating host you will never find. Sitting on that terrace overhanging the lake watching the boats pass into the sunset is Magic. We were 6 adults and there was more than enough space for everyone to do their own thing. Very close to all transport but I will definitely recommend having a car to get provisions if you are doing self catering for many people.

“Amazing Villa La Rugs”
Reviewed August 22, 2017 for a stay in August 2017

people found this review helpful

This was our second time in 2 years staying at Villa La Ruga. It was the same as our last visit - totally perfect!! Francesco, the owner, is charming and amazingly helpful - booking restaurants, organizing wakeboarding, nothing is too much trouble. The Villa is stunning and being able to dive into the lake literally from the garden is fantastic. Even better this year, the Villa has it's own boat which we rented and used to tour around the lake - we hardly used our car at all!! If you want to go to Lake Como, and you haven't booked Villa La Ruga, you should do that right now.
