The Lombardy region

The Italian Lakes are a little slice of paradise. Elegant ribbons of blue water stretch out ahead, folded into the sun-baked foothills, with a spectacular back drop of the snow-capped Alps.

Lake Como offers hidden treasures just waiting for the visitor to discover them: charming corners forgotten by time, lakeside villages where nothing seems to have changed for centuries.

It is steeped in history with an immense collection of churches, architectural masterpieces and works of art covering the centuries. The lake is situated in a basin surrounded by wooded mountains, and offers an extremely varied landscape, with its' shores featuring a succession of pastures, and woods as well as harsh and impressive rock formations.

All this alongside elegant, lakeside villas with sub-tropical gardens, which provide a haven of peace and tranquility and chic resorts such as Varenna, Bellagio, Menaggio and Como itself.

Warming, inspiring and graced with natural beauty, the lakes are still a place to draw breath and wonder. Lake Como, oriented north-south, ringed by characterful old villages often wedged onto

narrow beaches between rugged cliffs and water. Those classic lake images of flower strewn balconies, Baroque gardens and splendid waterside villas can be found here in abundance. Dotted around and between the lakes are some of Italy's finest art cities, such as Milan, Verona & Bergamo.

The most romantic and picturesque villages on the lake are Santa Maria Rezzonico, Varenna (15 min by ferry) & Bellagio (8 min by ferry), Lenno (visit Villa Balbianello, location for 007's Casino Royale as well as Villa Gaeta, right here in Menaggio) & Laglio (where George Clooney owns Villa Oleandra).


Guests can use the off-street parking area outside the villa gates and from the hillside location of Carlazzo the villa is just a 7 minute drive from the popular resort town of Porlezza.

The town on Lake Lugano provides a wide choice of local amenities including supermarkets, banks, lake view cafes and shops. The nearby Lago di Piano nature reserve is popular with walkers and cyclists and other local activities include horse riding, tennis, golf, swimming, sailing, kayaking and quad biking.

Menaggio on Lake Como is just a 17 minutes drive away and provides guests with fabulous starting point from where to explore Lake Como, with its splendid villas, botanical gardens, family friendly lidos and adventure parks.

Guests can enjoy fine country-style cuisine in the nearby Agroturismo of ‘La Barcola’ also enjoy the local pizzerias and lake view restaurants which run southwards along the Tremezzina shore towards Como city.

Lugano city can be reached in just 30 minutes and provides a full range of cosmopolitan delights from designer shopping, modern casinos, and elegant cafe lined piazzas and trendy nightclubs.

Carlazzo is one of the bigger villages in this area and has a convenient grocery shop and a selection of restaurants. There are many natural and artistic attractions which should not be missed, especially several churches. In particular the church of St. Giacomo and St. Fedele which rises in the centre of the village, the church of St. Stefano containing the famous organ which was created by Serassi in 1858, the church of St. Nazzaro and Celso and also the church of St. Giorgio in the hamlet of Gottro which is famous for its Romanesque bell tower.
