I was invited to stay at the amazing CastaDiva Resort & Spa, this truly is a five-star luxury resort, located on the east side of Lake Como, in the lovely village of Blevio, only 5km from Como and 65 km from Milano Malpensa International Airport.

This truly beautiful resort consists of seven villas with a total of 73 rooms and is surrounded by a luxurious botanic park over an area of approximately 26,000 sqm.

From the minute we arrived it was just perfect. Our car was parked for us and luggage taken to our room. We were driven to our room which was located in Villa Dorabella. This amazing Deluxe Room had a private garden and magnificent view over Como lake. The room was characterised by contemporary furniture with gold elements which create a bright atmosphere. The decor is unique in every room but stays true to the classic Italian feel. The room was 5 star and immaculately kept. We could not have asked for more.

The staff are amazing and really can not do enough for you, the grounds are perfect and I could not find a single thing that I didn’t like about my whole stay. The spa is exceptional and I must say the best I have ever visited, with an exciting range of treatments. You will want to try them all.

Lake Como is Italy’s most popular lake and also its deepest, shaped like an inverted Y, giving it a long perimeter. The lake is surrounded by beautiful villas and resort villages as well as hiking paths and is popular for boat trips and water activities.

Lake Como, a popular destination since Roman times, is a top romantic travel destination and a great spot for photography. Located in northern Italy, in the Lombardy region close to the Swiss border. Mild Mediterranean temperatures and attractions to suit all tastes ensure the area attracts visitors from all across the world year- round.

Entering Autumn, October in Lake Como is a lot warmer than October in the UK. Temperatures in the low 20’s are not unusual, and the rainy season is finally coming to an end.

With less cooler temperatures than the summer months, October is an ideal time for exploring the outdoors and the stunning nature Lake Como has to offer.

Casta Diva is a place of excellence and exclusivity, perfect for a romantic weekend or a week of vacation on the lake.
