    SH, MA

    Villa David was the highlight of our 6 weeks in Italy. We really felt comfortable in this house and loved the access to the lake. We highly recommend it. The staff was efficient and very responsive to our needs." MG, Wayland, MA. " Well maintained home, beautiful views!

    JE Parker

    Thanks to you, the Parker family found the Villa David on the banks of Lake Como as our vacation home for the week of August 4-11, 2012. It was the perfect place for the reunion of our daughters, Maggie and Emily, plus our exchange daughters, Cristina of Spain and Renata of Brazil. They and their families had a joyous week together with their husbands and children who have now begun a tradition of friendship among themselves. And we parents looked on with pleasure. The villa was lovely in every way: comfortable bedrooms, spacious dining room where we enjoyed dinner together every night, taking turns cooking Italian, Spanish, Brazilian and American food; the children loved the pool; and we had limitless ideas of things to do and see. Thank you for your help in making this a memorable week for us, and a special thanks to Daniela who made the difference in a nice week and a very nice week. She was helpful beyond expectation and a jewel. And a special thanks as well to Emanuela who produced a fabulous dinner of local specialities. We ate and drank all evening long, marveling at her delicious dishes. We would like nothing more than to repeat this adventure again in Italy or anywhere else you have properties. It is a pleasure to work with you.
