Lake Como- anyone familiar with Relais Villa Vittoria in Laglio?

Jump to last reply

I'm considering the Relais Villa Vittoria in Laglio with my husband and 2 girls (9 and 11) in July. I had originally planned to stay at the Grand Hotel Tremezzo until I found out that they would require us to book 2 rooms in order to accommodate my children- which would make it twice as expensive to stay there (and it's already pushing the budget for just one room).

So I found the little Relais Villa Vittoria in Laglio and it looks beautiful. Small, yes, but has a 2 bedroom suite that accommodates children, a beautiful infinity pool, a restaurant, and best of all, it sits right on the lake with outstanding views, all in quiet and elegant surroundings.

My concern is Laglio- I wasn't planning on renting a car. Flying into Milan from the Midwest US, and had planned on a car service to the hotel in Como, since we will be exhausted and carrying three weeks worth of luggage for 4 people (thought it would be too difficult to manage the train on little to no sleep, no Italian skills, and tons of luggage).

But I hear there is no ferry stop in Laglio, so if I don't rent a car, will I be stranded? If I do rent a car, will it take forever to get to Varenna and Bellagio or can I catch the ferry somewhere close by?

Or should I just try for the Grand Tremezzo at twice the cost per night? Help!

I should mention we will be continuing on to Wengen, Switzerland via train and Swiss Pass, once we spend our 3 days in Lake Como and conquer the jet lag.
