About the Manager

Eric and Robin with their lovely daughter Jiselle have owned and managed the Lake Como Beach Resort since 2007. They moved to Italy to raise their daughter in a beautiful, peaceful and stunning setting on Lake Como. Being here is living the Italian dream and we are blessed to offer our guests the opportunity, to share it with us.

Great lake front property with breathtaking views of Lake Come and well equipped and maintained apartments. The owners were very friendly and helpful. Location is conveniently located between Como and Bellagio. The driveway to the private parking is an experience by itself.

A perfect holiday lakeside in Italy

  • 5 of 5

The photos and description of the property and location did it justice. Absolutely beautiful. The viletta was clean and well serviced during our stay. The owner and staff were very attentive and helpful. Nothing was too much trouble. They were a source of great local knowledge of places to go and visit, restaurants to eat, boats to hire and public transport. One of the staff also offered a private taxi service. There were good facilities on site too. Inflateables, and kayaks with life jackets were available for use. There was a well stocked fridge in the reception area where cold drinks could be bought. Soft drinks, wine, beer, water and milk were stocked. In that same area there was a great selection of brochures, maps and local business cards. They correctly state it is not suitable for the elderly or infirm. This is due to the steep access to the property from the car park to lakeside. There is a lift down the side of the hill and well lit steps through pretty gardens. When we arrived there was a member of staff to meet us and help us with our luggage. We - my husband, 13year old son and I - agreed it was one of the best holidays we have had. Thank you !

Beautiful lake front Villetta

  • 5 of 5

This was my families second stay at Lake Como Beach Resort and we will be back again and again. The Villetta are are well maintained, clean and charming. The location is perfect and the view is just breath taking!! The location is beach front with a private dock where you can park a rental boat easily arranged through your host or just use as a diving board I to the beautiful waters of lake Como. In walking distance you have a wonderful small full service store where the owners make thier own pasta and sauces, a must have! A small wonderful coffee/bar/restaurant is at top of hill by bus stop, all in walking distance. There are beautiful paths leading from the beach resort along the lake front and wondering through ajoining small towns.

Your hosts Eric and Robin are wonderful and make you feel like this is your home away from home. They are warm, friendly and so very helpful in advising how to get to and from Como as well as explaining activities. They are the kind of people you meet and feel instantly comfortable with.

All major tourist attractions are within a bus, ferry or short car ride. The ferry is also in walking distance.

I highly recommend Lake Como Beach Resorts and will return again. My son is hoping for a two week stay next and says he wants to live in Como.

Thank you Eric and Robin for such warm hospitality and such a wonderful place to stay.

Simply spectacular~

  • 5 of 5

This is one of the most beautiful, charming, delightful and relaxing places I've ever visited. The location is astonishing, almost level with Lake Como. The ferry to other islands (with museums, restaurants, etc.) was a two- minute walk from our apartment along a lovely pathway. The entire experience -- from turning off the roadway, descending to the lakeside in the amazing outdoor elevator with a view, walking under the grape arbor to our villa -- was simply magical. The villa was lovely and spotlessly clean. The spiral staircase to our room on the second floor was a wonderful surprise and there is an unbelievable view of the lake and sky and a pretty balcony. The kitchen is fully equipped with everything you need -- there is a fantastic grocer on the road above and we enjoyed Vincente's (the grocer) offerings so much that we shopped there practically every day and had had our meals outside on the terrace.

Robin and Eric could not have been more solicitous, gracious and caring hosts and Mohammed was a wonderful help as well. They all made us feel so welcome and left us a bottle of wine as a welcome. The library has a wide selection of movies and books, and wine for sale for those days when you just don't want to go out!

This is an extraordinary place, with a lovingly maintained garden, in an area with many options for dining and sightseeing. It is private, quiet, the beach is just perfect -- we really didn't want to leave during the day because the whole place is just so fantastic. If you are looking for an extraordinary getaway in Northern Italy on a stunning lake, with the most considerate and generous hosts, then this is the place. You will not be disappointed. We can't wait to return.

Paradise on the Lake with a View

  • 5 of 5

The property was fantastic. It is located on Lake Como. It has a grass lawn to lounge on, an elevated beach area to sun and a dock to moor your rented boat or to jump off into the refreshing water. The owners of the property and their staff are one of a kind. They are helpful with everything you ask for in English and Italian. The View is incredible from every room and it is very near a Ferry landing for exploring. There is a quaint restaurant and a store within walking distance. I have already recommended this place to my friends and it is our 2nd stay. Enjoy the Journey and tell Eric, "California Chris sent you".

Ripples on the lake, dancing sunsets, excellent support and proper weather!

  • 5 of 5

Eric and the amazing Mohammed did everything to make our stay not only comfortable but wonderful. Mohammed is always there to fetch your shopping, provide an umbrella, or update you on the weather. There is no doubt that he would also part the waters of the lake if you ever missed your ferry, and would move the mountain if it you missed the sunset. But at the same time he is never in the way!

All the apartments face out onto the pleasant gardens allowing you the opportunity to meet, chat, share wine or even share a glorious meal. (I guess you could even hide away in your rooms if thats why you go on holiday!)

The village is not dominated by tourists (despite being on the best part of the lake - sunsets, views and easy distance from Bellagio and Como. The shop is well stocked for lunch and dinner, and only a short walk from the top of the lift.

Chef Bruno might think he runs the local restaurant, but luckily his wife is in charge. However his devoted kitchen staff reliably follow his orders allowing him to act out the glorious italian drama that seems to envelope the whole village. Viva Verdi!

When you arrive do be careful to not drive down the first driveway you come to, stay on the road for at least 60yds. In the rain, its not so easy to get back to the top!

Many thanks to Eric and Robin for the inspiration.

Lake Como Beach Resort is a Home Away from Home !

  • 5 of 5

Our 10 nights on Lake Como at the Lake Como Beach Resort were heaven.

Staying at Eric's resort was the highlight of our Italy vacation.

The views were breathtaking from all over the property and Eric was a gracious host and so incredibly helpful. Offering great advice on day trips around the area, restaurant reservations and helping us schedule in Italian for us . He even rented a motorboat for us for the afternoon which is a must do when coming here. Giving one a totally different perspective of the lake. We would have to say, Eric and Robin have an amazing property on the lake managed with pride and care. Truly the best customer service anywhere.

The resort was immaculate and clean very well managed . There are gorgeous gardens and a lido and dock we enjoyed while there. Loved the private balcony with seating in the evenings.

A great value for your money. Private, very warm friendly and comfortable setting as well as lovely guests from all over the world. We met some new friends which we really enjoyed from Australia. The property attracts wonderful guests as we had the pleasure of finding while there.

We were sad to leave as we had enjoyed our stay enormously. Overall, an amazing holiday and we could not have been more pleased.

Really enjoyed the Bella Vista Restaurant with Chef Paolo Longoni who was amazing. Another wonderful place was Crotto Misto in Lezzeno. Great fish at the little restaurant at the Ponte Nesso.

Loved the little grocery store in Pognana Lario, Louisa and Vincenzo were very helpful. Eric made our stay fantastic and special.

Thank you Eric for a most enjoyable holiday. You're the best!
