Our weekday morning digest that includes consumer news, deals, tips and anything else that travelers may want to know.


Luxury hotels in Lake Como, Italy, tend to be large, but that changed this month with the opening of the nine-room Villa Làrio. Set on the shore in a 19th-century former residence of a noble Lombardy family, the property is meant to emulate the feeling of staying in a private home. It has an infinity pool with lake views, a small garden where massages can be arranged and a restaurant with 40 seats inside and another 40 outside. There is also a jetty on site with water sports like canoeing, skiing and kayaking and a landing pad nearby for seaplanes and helicopters. Rates from $390.
