“The Absolute best place to stay in Italy! The house sits perfectly on an outcropping with an outstanding view of Lake Como and surrounding cities (Menaggio, Bellagio, and Varrena). Equipped with everything you need to cook, clean, and relax. The villa also has a boat pier for use during the summer with incredible views of the mountain ranges. The host was by far the best we have encountered throughout our travels in Europe. Absolutely recommend this location!”
Hunter Usa, Jan 2022

“Excellent experience staying at Villa Gaeta. I think it is the nicest and most unusual property on Lago di Como. There
were no other resident at the property so we have the whole property to ourselves. The host, Barrie is very helpful on every aspect of our stay- If you like peace and quiet, this is the place.”
Andy, Dec 2021

“Wonderful stay at an iconic and well located villa. Excellent communication with the host. The photos don’t do the villa justice – it’s even better!”

“What didn’t you like…Nothing….it’s faultless
What did you like…Barrie is an amazing host and he couldn’t do enough for us. Easy check in and all done in person. Also on hand all week for any help or just recommending places to visit. First class”
