We loved Julian and Sue’s villa, which is in a stunning location, with beautiful views of the lake. The villa is very comfortable and quiet, well-appointed and spotlessly clean. It is also very professionally managed.
The only thing people should be aware of is the very precarious drive in from the main road, and the steep, twisting drive up to the villa, and also the very scary exit from the drive back out onto the main road, adjacent to a bend. There are also 32 steep steps up from the car to the villa which was tricky with bags and suitcases - but good exercise! Anyone less fit than us might find that a challenge.
We love walking - everywhere - so were a bit disappointed that there is absolutely no possibility of walking anywhere from the villa itself, due to the entrance being on a very fast main road, with no pavements, for several miles. However, once in Connonio or Oggebio there are nice walking trails - but you have to drive to get there.
The area is absolutely beautiful - especially in the glorious Italian sunshine.
The apartment was in a great location; close to hiking trails and just a 20 min walk to the waterfront in Cannobio. Our kids liked seeing the chickens and dogs on the property too. Cannobio is a beautiful town. We’ll definitely be back!
