Guests have commented that once arriving at Villa Fyn, they haven’t wanted to leave! It is entirely possible to get by without a car and rely on public transport and your legs. This is part of the charm of spending some time in this beautiful part of the lake.
However, if you’d like to hire a car, the whole lake is yours to explore. A representative from the local agency which manages Villa Fyn, will provide you with more details about getting around the area, but here’s a general outline.

On foot

The villa is within walking distance of the villages of Acquaseria and Rezzonico and there are many walking tracks which meander through the hills. There is a stunning ‘Mule track walk from Acquaseria to Rezzonico through hamlets and chestnut woods.
The Strada Regina is an ancient track from Breglia to Rezzonico which follows a small part of the antique Roman transit road to the alpine passes.


Villa Fyn has space for 3 cars, with an extra car park on the road level. With a car, you have access to the many little villages at the top of the hill. Como and Lugano are roughly an hour’s drive away and St Moritz is 1 ½ hours away.
