Hotel Villa Flori (Como, ITALY)

Lake Como was our final stop in Italy before crossing the border to Switzerland but we liked the coastal town so much that we decided to stay for one night. Hotel Villa Flori was my pick out of nearly 500 properties on the web and early signs indicated that we've gotten a really nice find here.

To better take care of mom and my little nugget, we got ourselves connecting rooms. It's right at the corner of the corridor so it's a bit more quiet and private.

I dropped a few extra Euros to make sure that we got ourselves a view of Lake Como and what a view that turned out to be.

Amazing view from the balcony.....

And very quiet without much traffic on the sea.....

Wait, is that George Clooney? Hi George......!!!!

Here's the second room. It's a little smaller but with the same stunning view from the balcony. For a hotel of its age, I thought they did a nice job making it modern without losing its character.

The bathroom had this luxury touch though a little small for its size. 

Breakfast provided another highlight for our stay. I would very much like to grab one of the tables on the outdoor patio but at 9am, they were already taken. 

I can sit here all day.......

So, back to the indoor breakfast we went....

This was really not too shabby. I had the feeling that we were some royalties enjoying our breakfast at one of those seaside palace. Enough daydreaming.

Freshly baked bread and fruit...

Cured meat and cheese on the other side.....

After a few rounds of these, I was so full.....

Like all good hotels, they have indoor parking onsite.

It was a wonderful stay although our relaxing evening was briefly interrupted by mother nature last night. Obviously, thunderstorm struck the town of Como pretty hard to a point where there was no electricity for a good 20-30 minutes. We had to operate in the dark but I was able to find some candles so my night wasn't entirely lost. In fact, I got to sit on the balcony and enjoy my tiramisu all by myself.
