Lakefront villa in Cremia
About the home
This unique waterfront villa, completely newly renovated, is something really special and unforgettable: it is right on the shore of the lake! A beautiful garden surrounds the property granting privacy to its guests. From the entire villa, terraces, balcony and garden you can admire a wide panorama with stunning views of the lake and the mountains. The house is very quiet and the lake provides absolute serenity, but it is possible to find more life just walking to the main beach of the village, where the locals, the tourists and the windsurfers meet. Cremia and the Northern part of Lake Como in general, is known worldwide as one of the best spots for sailing, windsurfing and kitesurfing. A local wind from South comes every day in the early afternoon and assures fun for the sail lovers...and a fresh breeze in hot days! In the village, within walking distance from the house, there are a couple of restaurants-pizzerias and coffe bars. Private parking space for 2 cars. Free Wi-Fi.
The famous Golf Club of Menaggio is only 10 minutes drive away.
The 3 bedrooms, the wide living area and the large outside spaces make the villa ideal for families or group of friends.

The Lombardy / Lake Como Area region
Lake Como is located in an ideal area surrounded by protecting mountains which create a particularly mild climate and where southern and northern Europe meet and exchange culture. Well known all over the world for its charm and incomparable beauty, for its light pastels and water colors, Lake Como is an impressionism painting made by nature. Breath taking landscapes that have captured the hearts of more than a hundred years of “connoisseur” tourists coming from all over the world. The founder of the second oldest Italian Golf Club (1906) in Menaggio was English and King Edward VIII chose the lake for his honeymoon. Winston Churchill often summered on the shores of the lake. In the sixties the German chancellor Adenauer elected Lake Como as his favourite place for holidays. To this day the area is still loved by entrepreneurs, businessmen, writers, fashion designers, sportsmen, actors and movie directors including George Lucas, George Clooney, Donatella Versace, Madonna and Sting...
This is all because Lake Como offers its beauty with discretion and elegance, without confusion and with a magical atmosphere that invites one to relax and meditate. For these characteristics alone it becomes more appreciated, by more people, every day.
The Cremia / San Vito area
Lake Como offers a lot to see and explore. Cremia is ideally located to visit both the central and south lake area, but also the northern part which has a lot to offer as well. Bellagio and Varenna, two beautiful and famous villages of the central lake area. Tremezzo with the botanical garden of Villa Carlotta, Lenno with the enchanting Villa Balbianello, the "Isola Comacina", the unique island of Lake Como, George Clooney's villa and Como itself. Going North, Dongo, with its lively market on Thursday and Gravedona with its castle and lake promenade and so on. Cremia is approximately 1 hr. 40 minutes from St. Moritz and 45 minutes from Lugano in Switzerland. Other Northern Italian cities of culture including Bergamo (2 hours), Verona (2.75 hours) and Venice (3.5 hours) can be managed as day trips. Superb shopping can be done in Como (50 minutes) or Milan (1.5 hours).
Local markets are hosted in different villages on different days. Summer evening market in Menaggio on Friday.

We had a fabulous week at the villa. It has an amazing view and it's very well equipped, the beds are very comfortable. A 5 minute stroll along the shore of the Lake takes you to two excellent restaurants. Although the villa is near the road there was no noise and it was actually very convenient for getting around to see the sights and do the watersports. I hope to return very soon! Deborah could not have been more helpful, she provided lots of information before we went and was very understanding when we were late arriving due to heavy traffic.
