Very characterful 1950s Villa. Beautiful interior. Tennis court poor, no boat dock or kayak

  • 3 of 5

Property is promoted as Tennus but the court was virtually unplayable. The net was broken and the surface broken up also. The Villa lists boat dock, boat and kayak but these do not exist. The gardener spent 7 hours with loud mower on Friday, maintenance was done on the pool without telling us. Too many interruptions.

Owner's Response: Dear Mr. Butler, yes, we are aware of the problems you felt during our stay and we apologize for the discomfort suffered by the work of the gardener while mowing the grass and blowing the tennis court. Following your remarks we will arrange for the future to have the lawn mowed on the Saturday, instead of Fridays, after the guests will have left. The tennis court is not in the best condition, we are aware of this and we will have a new tennis net replaced. We cannot guarantee fot the immediate future to have a new tennis court but certainly we will try and mend what looks damaged. Again sorry for this and we will make things straight according to your suggestions. From our side it was a pleasure to have you staying in Villa Tennis and hope to see you again in a not to distant future. Best regards, Paolo Franchi

Fabulous vacation rental

  • 5 of 5

This villa was by far the best vacation rental we have ever had! We were a group of 12, family and friends, arriving from various locations to celebrate a recent birthday and to enjoy a week of quality time together. Everything about the villa just made this the perfect week - the lovely grounds which are spacious and park-like and which we enjoyed so much, the comfort and privacy of bedrooms and bathrooms, a kitchen equipped with every conceivable tool or device needed for feeding the group, the pool which we frequented regularly, the patio on which we had every meal, and the town of Marone which offered everything we needed. We also enjoyed the surrounding area via car, boat and on hikes. It was wonderful to meet the owner and his wife, both of whom were most gracious and kind. Communication about the rental was very easy and timely via email and additionally Mr. Franchi kindly shared his phone number to clarify last minute arrival details, which was most generous. In short, the perfect vacation, and we would love to come back another summer!

Best holiday rental we have had

  • 5 of 5

Lovely house with lots of big rooms with lovely marble floors. Nice private pool with 3 separate outside eating areas and a proper tennis court. Well located in the small village of Marone with cafés and a lakeside restaurant and shops for bread,etc.

The lake is great with good swimming and we hired both motor and sailing boats. Monte Isola is absolutely beautiful and we wish we had gone for lunch in one of the many restaurants on the south side.

Overall, the best holiday villa we have ever rented!

Beautiful, spatial and very comfortable

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week at Villa Tennis to celebrate the 50th wedding aniversary of our parents (in-law). We had a great week with our family (11 people) and enjoyed the beautiful house and the well maintained garden with swimming pool and tennis court. Mr. Franchi is very kind and speaks English (fluently). We really enjoyed everything!

Great family holiday

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned to Sydney Australia after spending 3 weeks at the villa

The garden is a great attraction and deserves a 5 on all points

The living area deserves a 5 on all points the only issue is that we had a few problems with the WiFi


This also deserves a 5.

Sleeping rooms:

All very good and deserving of a 5


We kept the children out of the music room for obvious reasons. I borrowed and read 3 books. Again I think a 5 rating is in order.

What make us choose villa tennis?

Apart from the obvious attraction of the proximity to the lake it was the combination of large garden , swimming pool and tennis court and proximity to shops and transport.

We very much loved the hospitality and use of the wonderful villa, the children loved the freedom of the garden and everybody enjoyed the pool. . A 5 to all is deserved.

Owner's Response: Dear Giorgio and JJennifer, thank you for your kind opinion on the quality of our villa. We try to do whatever necessary to always improve it and, if something does not work properly, we try to mend it as soon as possible. As a matter of fact we have in mind a few improvments we intend to make before the next season as our objective is keep a very good standard. Thanks to every suggestion we receive.

Italian living at its best

  • 5 of 5

This villa is an oasis by a lake. It is a real home not just a empty holiday house. It has all the comforts and is spotlessly clean. Paolo and his wife were there to welcome us and show us round. We soon relaxed and enjoyed living in this little town on the lake with its local cafes on lakeside, easy access to boat trips on the lake, weekly market and the convenience of a spar open every day for fresh food...all within walking distance. however the real holiday was relaxing by the beautiful pool and walking among the olive trees in the garden and enjoying the fresh coffee and iced water, no need to buy bottles! It is a lovely place to spend time with friends and family. For those arriving by train there is a station near by and it is only just over and hours drive from Milan airport.
