Spacious roof top apartment with a nice bathroom and just a spit from the lake. Very nice tenant (Bilbo) and also the owner Mike is a helpful person. We had difficulties upon arrival to find the entrance of the villa. We were late and therefore the gate already closed. No indicated bell to ring. So don't forget Bilbo's cellphone number….The villa is impressive. To bring up the luggage we could use the elevator. The kitchen unfortunately is not so well equipped. We skipped our plans for cooking, did just snacks we got from the local Mercato outside the city walls (formaggi, olives, fresh carciofi, salumi…). Ah yes - by the way - one couple slept in the kitchen/livingroom because it's not really a double bedroom apartment..rather a two room. We would come back but maybe would ask for some more knifes and forks:-)) Two couples (South Africa & Switzerland) in their 40s.

We enjoyed a wonderful stay at Villa Gallieta. Mike and his team were very helpful and the setting is so beautiful. We really enjoyed spending Christmas there.

We had a magnificant stay in the very special and exclusive villa, living in the loft apartment on top of the very-well situated villa just on the edge of the town. Everything was so close - either by walking or preferably on the numerous bicycles at our disposal. But what was really special was the staff and their attention to our every whim. When asking for an iron, a washcloth, additional towels or whatever, they saw to it immediately. Every day they would come up with interesting places to visit, print out brochures from the internet for us and so on. Not everything was perfect, but that depends how ones looks at it and one's expectations....when first climbing the very many steps to get to our apartment, I thought we were crazy, but it grew on us and the exercise was actually good! Every morning I would cycle for a few minutes along the beautiful and scenic pathway along the lake to buy fresh croissonts for our breakfast. We thought there would be TV, but there wasn't - so even tough upset at first, it was a blessing - image a whole week with no TV - one ends up talking to your wife and kids! We'de go back there anytime and maybe next time meet up with the owner Mike, who unfortunately was away during our stay - am sure that with him around, it would even have been better. The only real disappointment we had was when arriving at our hotel at Garda lake after staying at Mike - first thing we said was "let's go back to Villa Galietta!!" Try it - you won't be disappointed

Mike esperó a que llegáramos para recibirnos y siempre tuvimos facilidades para cualquier cosa que necesitáramos. La zona, aunque algo alejada de la zona de bares y restaurantes, propicia un paseo alrededor del lago que lo convierte en un lugar encantador. El apartamento es tal cual podéis ver en las imágenes. Saludos Mike y gracias poor todo!

Wir (Paar mit 2 Kindern 11 und 13 j.) verbrachten 3 wunderschöne Tage im Dachstock der Villa. Die Lage ist 1 A - direkt am See im Villenquartier. Die Wohnung ist geräumig und sehr stilvoll ausgebaut und perfekt ausgestattet. Ein kurzer Spaziergang am See führt nach Como zum Shoppen, Besichtigen und natürlich zum Essen! Mike hat uns gute Restaurant Tips gegeben und hat uns seine wunderschöne Villa gezeigt! Wir können Mikes Villa wirklich nur empfehlen - es gibt auch noch 2 andere Wohnungen in der Villa, die man mieten kann, die sicher auch sehr schön sind. In Cernobbio haben wir ein schnelles Motorboot gemietet und haben unzählige schöne Villen vom See aus betrachtet - grossartig! Lieber Mike, wir kommen gerne bald wieder!
