The staff were so rude that we did not stay, so we did not see what the house and gardens had to offer.

The gardens to the villa are beautiful. Make sure to leave some time to just wander them. The villa itself is kind of forgettable.

Villa Carlotta is definitely worth a visit - it's better than the gardenas of Villa Cipressi and Villa Monastero in Varenna, according to my opinion. The garden is well maintained, the paths are easy to follow and the view over Lago di Como is stunning....More
