Lake Como - The Details

Its been a week since we returned from our little getaway to Lake Como in Italy. While we were there to celebrate my mans birthday we also just wanted to take the time to relax, indulge in delicious food and enjoy a little quality time alone. Without a doubt we accomplished all of the above and I wanted to share some of our trips details with you in case you plan to visit this charming little area!

We stayed at Castadiva Resort and had the most amazing experience. The room was massive with a terrace looking over the lake and the resorts beautiful gardens. The service was impeccable with kind people tending to whatever you may need. The spa was so unique with all of it's treatment rooms, water experience and services.  I can't recommend this place enough! It was spectacular place to stay and the location was ideal, quick cab to Como Center and right on the lake with views everywhere you looked. All of our trips photos are below.

  2. Gorgeous! The mountains and narrow streets remind me of Croatia & Slovenia - I was there last month for 10 days. Even on a rainy day, Europe is the most beautiful place!
