Thank you. Yes, actually it's because of the now capped mountains that my favorite times of the year at the villa are autumn and spring. Especially also because the crowds of tourists have eased and you have plenty of time and space to relax.

About the neighbourhood
The small village of Civenna is 400m above Lake Como with panoramic views of the lake. The town has a fruit shop, supermarket, butcher, newspaper shop and pasticceria (bakery).
Getting around
There are several buses each day from our village to Bellagio from where you can get a ferry to everywhere on the lake. You can plan your day around these. But it is better to have a car if you can.
