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!!

Response from Diego Ratti, General Manager at Villa Monti
Responded Jul. 27, 2020
roryp632 received a travel voucher worth the full amount of his cancelled reservation but he does not mention this in his review....in March and April 2020 the Covid pandemic hit hard the Italian travel industry and the Italian Government issued a law to deal with force majeur cancellation giving Italian hotels and accomodation providers the option to issue a travel voucher in lieu of cash refund for those last minute cancellations made because of Covid 19. Villa Monti as the whole Italian travel industry did, provided its direct guests (such as roryp632) with travel vouchers when they cancelled their reservations. Reservations made through agencies had the agency's terms and conditions for extenuation circustances applied. Some guests as roryp632 asked for cash refund but such option was not practicable at that time and after talking with Villa Monti management he accepted a travel voucher as full refund. The last minute cancellations due to covid19 have been a frustrating issue for both travellers and hotels : Villa Monti has done its best to be fair with all the guests. To apply the rules set by the Italian Government for covid19 cancellations seemed to Villa Monti the only fair and transparent way to deal with such a complex issue.

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!

Room Tip: The room at the tip-top, the tower, is amazing. Other rooms have glorious lake views, too.

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.
