“Wonderful Easter Weekend hunting easter eggs and playing boccia in a beautiful garden overlooking lake Como”
Reviewed 29 March 2016 for a stay in March 2016

Francesco was a great host and made us feel welcome. We were able to enjoy the view and the amenities of the house in spite of the early time in the year. The house is really beautiful and worked for the three generations of our family who visited. We cooked our own pasta and had Umberto cook a wonderful meal for us. On our third night we went to the Isola de Comacina for a meal. The garden is wonderful and you cannot help but relax in it on a beautiful sunny day.

“Amazing location with great host”
Reviewed 8 March 2016 for a stay in March 2016

We stayed at Villa La Ruga for a party this month. The property is adjacent to the lake and the views are amazing. It is very spacious and the rooms overlook the lake. Francesco was an amazing host and was always available to provide assistance with directions, access and questions about Como.

The management of the party was also very well taken care off and everything worked smoothly during the event, with guests very comfortable and amazed by the property. Will definitely recommend it for a holiday visit. Our time spent there was impeccable!

“Amazing villa!”
Reviewed 8 March 2016 for a stay in March 2016

We have stayed at this wonderful villa last weekend to celebrated my birthday. The villa is extremely beautiful and the view of lake Como is unbeatable!. Above all, I would like to say that Francesco who is the manager of the villa is extremely dedicated, helpful, friendly and easy going!. He helped us with the organization of the party and coordinate all details in a excellent manner!

Francesco, thanks so much for helping us to make my birthday so special and wonderful!

We will definitely come back!

“The villa is ideal if you want a tranquil private lakeside setting on Lake Como with a stunning outlook”

My (adult) daughter and I stayed at Villa La Ruga for 6 weeks, from mid September to the end of October. The weather was still mostly sunny and warm during the day but getting colder at night. We dealt exclusively with the owner's son, Francesco Rimoldi. He was extremely attentive, without being intrusive. The villa was well located, down a steep drive that looked more daunting than it actually was (even in the occasional torrential rain storm), and right on the lake. Multiple doors from the living room and kitchen to the terrace maximized this proximity and the panoramic views were stunning. The villa has a boathouse which we did not make use of, but which also provided lake access for swimming although, by then, it was a bit too cold for us. Apparently, the terrace also works well as a diving platform! The villa was fully equipped for a comfortable and convenient stay. The location is excellent - about 75 minutes drive from Malpensa Airport and about 20 minutes from Como. Argegno is about a minute's drive away, where La Piazetta is highly recommended for a pizza lunch, or for an authentic Italian dinner.

“WHAT A WONDERFUL PLACE ON THE LAKE!!”
Reviewed 21 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

You won't go wrong with renting Villa La Ruga. The minute we walked in and met Francesco, we knew we arrived at the right place. Francesco couldn't have been more helpful throughout the months of asking questions. He was there upon our arrival helping us any way that he could. The villa itself is amazing; right on the lake with gorgeous views you can't put into writing. You need to see it for yourself. There's bocce ball and we even swam in the lake right off of the boat house. The villa itself was immaculate and the beds were very comfortable. One thing I'd highly recommend is doing the private boat tour. It was so much fun and we had a beautiful day for it. The time there went way too fast. Thank you, Francesco, for your welcoming hospitality. If I could give you and your villa 10 stars, I would.
