Why We Chose Torno

We had a dream to create a luxurious vacation property for International Travelers. We fell in love with Villa Matilda in the lake side village of Torno on Lake Como. The locals call it “Il Castello” as it was originally a fortified castle tower. We have lovingly restored this castle, with luxurious and antique fittings, for a unique vacation on Lake Como.
