Our stay at Villa Nina, which we found to be charming, well-kept, and architecturally inviting, was an absolutely delightful alternative to the great number of grand hotels that dot the lake. The suite itself was very amply-sized with the bathroom alone larger than most hotel rooms you would find in Europe. The decor and design seem to come straight out of a travel magazine. The docks, deck, and boats all provided us ample opportunity to enjoy the lake right out of our suite. We were well-situated among some of the most breathtaking villages on the west shore, and made good use of the speed boat with which to do some private exploration of our own. Federico and his wife were extremely attentive to our requests and provided us with all of the tourist information one could seek. I would highly recommend this villa.
Our stay with Federico and Claudia was great. They had very useful recommendations for the area, there were amazing views from the room and their place fostered a peaceful and relaxing atmosphere. We wish we could have stayed longer.
Our stay was just wonderful. Frederico and Claudia are perfect hosts, and the property is spectacular. Exactly as photographed only better. The lake views from the bedroom and bathroom are stunning and an added bonus was a private balcony with a table and chairs. If you are looking for an upscale B&B right on the lake this is the spot. Breakfast every morning was a real treat, and the internet connections as well as beautiful bed linens and towels made the stay very enjoyable.
