We visited a few Vilas on lake Como, and this was our favorite. its really beautiful and well maintained, its also well staffed with friendly help, the gardens are set high, so its a little bit of a climb, but so worth it for the views. we took some really great photos here with our toddler. very memorable. this visit was the highlight of probably the best day of my life.the gift shop is very nice with sizeable selecition and helpful cheery staff.
