Lake Como - Need Villa Recommendations

We are planning a trip to the Lake Como region in late May/early June to celebrate my 35th birthday. We'll be 3 or 4 couples, all in mid-30s. We prefer to rent a villa as we love going to local markets and cooking some of our meals when in Europe... We'd prefer to stay in a place with some character as opposed to some generic, more modern construction but it must be comfortable and fairly recently renovated. Pool would be a plus but not a must. We are planning to explore the region, go to local markets and restaurants but also just relax (this is our one week per year travelling w/o kids!). Will be flying to/from Milan.
Would really appreciate any recommendations for a villa, as well as any suggestions on which town/village to make as our base, whether to have a car, restaurants not to miss, any anything else that might help us to make it relaxing and memorable vacation (I will be researching day trips and things to do while there a bit later)
Thank you!

Are you looking for a luxury property, or something a little less spectacular? Finding a 4 bedroom, 4 bath villa for May or June 2012 will be difficult depending on your budget. You can expect to pay a minimum of €5000 EUR/week for a decent place on or near the lake, much more for a luxury property.

You can start your search at and VRBO.

Good luck!
