‘Thank you so much. We truly loved our stay at Villa Negri’

Art Garfunkal and family, New York USA – September ‘07


Everything was perfect, we were so impressed how well stocked the kitchen was! You have worked really hard on refurbishing the villa, the decor and furnishings are beautiful and totally in keeping (I would have liked to taken a couple of chandeliers home!)  Silvana was a great help and Denise very efficient and unobtrusive. We would love to rent “Villa Negri” again in the future.

‘Exquisite, what a delightful experience’

Sue McGregor and friends, Melbourne Australia – May ‘08


Absolutely wonderful villa, every detail is perfect. We thoroughly enjoyed every minute. We can not thank Silvana enough for her kindness, guidance and a looking after our needs throughout our truly memorable stay at Villa Negri

Jennifer Furst and family, Chicago, USA – June ‘08


As we depart, we are filled with wonderful memories of a very special time.  Villa Negri made us feel that we were stepping into Italian life for a too-short time. We shared many fantastic meals, crystal air with lots of fun and laughter. Silvana and Luigi have gone the ‘extra mile’ for us to ensure our stay at Villa Negri was perfect.

Sue & Jeff Hewson and friends, Florida, USA – September ‘08


The villa is superb with so much attention to detail, such great taste yet so comfortable you feel as if you at a home! Thank you for organising the boat hire, it was a great success for the entire group.

The villa, views and locations are breathtaking! We enjoyed every minute – The chef Alberto was so relaxed and the food was outstanding.  We also made the most of the bbq, enjoying long lunches and sunshine, a fantastic holiday!

Vandermeer family, London, UK – August ‘09


We had the most wonderful holiday in Laglio, the villa was even above expectations. Everything was perfect.  What a lovely oasis you have created, as I sit here in Manhattan I still recall the charm and romance of the place and smile…

Moya Keys and friends, New York, USA – October ‘09


A more perfect villa, pool and location with every careful attention to detail in place is hard to image. We truly felt we were ‘living the Italian dream’

Debono family, Solihull, UK – April ‘10


The most magical place, the villa, the lake, the sunshine and the boat trips were all perfect.

Deborah & Patrick Strange, London UK – June ‘10


We were overwhelmed by the beauty of the villa and the lake. How we have enjoyed everything from golf at Menaggio, browsing in Como to lunches in Cernobbio! The most perfect villa for a group of ‘good friends’ to share a holiday – Thank you so much!

Ada Negri chose to write in this very location, as I writer myself I can fully appreciate the inspiration she must have felt. Time spent here is like savouring a slice of your favourite cake.
