Villa Carlotta is a lovely historic building in a terrific garden setting. It is well worth the effort to sit and enjoy the view from a peaceful and beutifully maintained garden setting.

Pristine beautiful gardens with a lovely view of the lake. Very interesting exhibitions inside the villa, definitely a top attraction.

Beautiful gardens and scenery. Busy through the gate but once inside people seem to vanish as the grounds are so vast. Plenty of places to sit and soak up the views.

I don't recall the cost but it's reasonable. We have also been there in October and it is worth the visit.
