2. Cookies are used by site managers to, amongst other things, remember the user’s log-in, user's language, and other navigation preferences. Sometimes cookies can come from third parties who are different from the manager of the site visited by the User (“third party cookies”). These cookies may or may not contain personal information about the user.

• analytics cookies, similar to cookies where technicians used directly by the site operator to collect information, in aggregate, the number of users and how they visit the site in order to improve site performance;

• cookies of features, which allow the user browsing function of a set of selected criteria (for example, the language, the products selected for purchase) in order to improve the service rendered to the same. For the installation of these cookies is not required the prior consent of the users (more information in section Manage Cookies below).

B&B Villa le Ortensie 2017 innkeeper

I'm Francesca, I am 32 years old, born in Como. I have studied Languages at the University and after 8 years employed in a firm in Switzerland I have decided to give a change to my life and leave my country and travel around the world. I spend two years working and visiting several countries, mainly in Africa and Asia, collecting lot of passport stamps and knowing plenty of interesting people. Then I start working as hostess in luxury yachts and decide that hospitality will be my future occupation. Some months ago I met Giorgio, the owner of Villa le Ortensie, and now I am here! I speak fluent English and French. I am looking forward to seeing you in Molina, one of the most suggestive location on the Lake of Como !
