Gorgeous view of Lake Como and superb hospitality from Enrico who gave us recommendations for the local area and booked our boat trip/restaurants. We will definitely be returning to Villa Monti in the near future!
We have enjoyed our 12 days stay at Villa Monti (app.2 Geranium) big time. A spacious appartement with a nice balcony with the spectacular view on Lake Como. Special thx for the guys Christian & Chicco, their service and tips have made our stay unforgettable. We have been here in 2016 and 2020, probably we will visit again in the future. Fam. Kuipers NL
I’m sure the property is as nice as other reviewers have written about, but I wouldn’t know because my reservation was during the pandemic. Even with my flights being cancelled, even with Italy being under lockdown, Villa Monti would not refund any of the $2300.00 for my reservation. I am only issuing a warning; Read The Cancellation Policy before you make that reservation. For example, just updated: You will need to give a 4 month notice to get a full refund. 3 months you will only get 65%. 60 days or less 0%. Villa Monti’s management does not recognize any extenuating circumstances!!
We were excited about our staying at Villa Monti the moment we booked it, nine months in advance. Not only does this stunning property sit high on a hill overlooking the lake, but our room was a two-story apartment with a tower as our second story. That room was fully equipped with a well-appointed kitchen, dining table, comfortable family room furniture and TV. Every time we entered the room the view took our breath away. Everything about Villa Monti is a dream -- the beautiful grounds and swimming pool, the amazing art in the room and throughout the property, the beautifully appointed room, and most of all, the warm and attentive care we received from our host, Christian. He was incredibly helpful with tips for exploring (even lending us his hiking sticks), dinner recommendations, even with getting our luggage to and from the room. Seeing him out and about in town was just like running into a good friend. This place is a jewel!…
We stayed for 3 nights in the Hydrangea Room. We had 2 floors including the top floor. There are quite a few stairs to climb to get there but we wouldn't change it for anything. The view from our room at the top was literally 360 degrees showing Lake Como, the train and tunnel, the township and the mountain behind us. We spent a month in Italy and this was an absolute highlight. Christian and Chicco were very welcoming and helpful with ideas on how to spend the days. Thank you, thank you for a experience we will never forget.
