About this location

The Lake Como region

Villa Bella is also just 90 minutes from Malpensa International Airport and is well connected to cities such as Milan and Bergamo. The Lake's vicinity to Milan has for centuries made it a popular refuge from city life, with many Milanese families constructing summer houses on her shores, a number of whose gardens and interiors can now be visited.

Milan itself opens up an array of possibilities - visit Leonardo Da Vinci's Last Supper, the Duomo or stroll down the famous shopping street of Via Montenapoleone.

You also have the possibility to explore some of Northern Italy's other lakes, such as Lake Maggiore in Piedmont to the West or even a day trip into Switzerland, to Lugano that offers another quite different experience. For the cultural enthusiasts, the historical city of Turin in Piedmont is well within reach, as are Venice and Verona heading eastwards.

LOCATION

Civenna overlooking the Lecco branch of Lake Como contains restaurants, shops and facilities. The buses in Civenna connect you to all local routes.

Civenna

The area around Lake Como is one of outstanding beauty. Stretching from the Swiss Alps to the Grigne and Legnone ranges, Lake Como is guarded over by spectacular mountain landscapes. Pastel-coloured villages perch along the shorelines and trail up her steep sides. In this part of Italy, you can find anything from the simplest rural dwellings to the palatial villas of the 18th century.

A walk around one of these central lake villages, up a cobbled avenue or across a church square, will convince you to pause for a moment on a sunny bench, to stop for an aperitivo at a sidewalk café or pop into a gelateria for a home-made ice cream.

Whether you want to explore the lake by foot, car or boat, we suggest that you enjoy it leisurely. Choose from one of the numerous activities the area offers, or simply from the comfort of your splendid private villa.

Villa Bella is located in the heart of Civenna, a small, traditional Italian town with spectacular views of Lake Como and the impressive Grigne mountain range. Civenna, just 15 minutes from Bellagio, is a welcome refuge from the lakeside bustle and offers tranquil village life while still being well-serviced. The town remains largely untouched by tourism providing great access to both lake and mountain activities and a taste of authentic small town living on Lake Como.

From the centre of Civenna you have a splendid view of the Corni di Canzo mountains, and following the road a little beyond the village you reach the famous Madonna del Ghisallo hill. According to a local legend, the medieval count Ghisallo was being attacked by bandits when he saw and image of the Virgin Mary at a shrine, he ran into it and was saved from the robbers. The apparition became known as the Madonna of Ghisallo and became the patron saint of local travellers. As the hill became a favourite among professional cyclists the Madonna was declared the patroness of cyclists and today the shrine contains a small cycling museum that enthusiasts from all over the world come to visit.
