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 tranquillity and chic resorts such as Varenna, Bellagio, Menaggio and Como itself.

Warming, inspriing 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).

Laglio

Laglio is a very pretty and idyllic Italian lakefront Village with a choice of authentic restaurants for you to try. It enjoys close proximity to cosmopolitan lakeside city of Como, which can easily be reached by car in just 10 minutes. There is also a bus service for guests using public transport, it is recommended though to rent a car to make it more convenient for guests to explore the Lakeside villages and towns.

Laglio has become famous in recent years for its Hollywood association with George Clooney, who purchased a Villa and set a trend with his pals and other celebrities.

The commune of Laglio, again on the Western shore is divided into the two centres of Laglio and Torriggia on Via Regina. Looking to the rear of the village, dense woods stretch up along the slopes of Monte Colmegnone (1,383 mts.). Torriggia is located opposite Careno, on a headland, which extends towards the middle of and the narrowest point of the lake (675 mts.).

The village is of Roman origin of the have been confirmed by a gravestone which was found in a locals home, at the beginning of the 20th century. From 1928 to 1948, Laglio formed a single commune with Brienno.

One of the curiosities of this small village is the cemetery where there is a curious eighteenth-century sepulchral monument of a German doctor, in the shape of a twenty-metre-high pyramid.

A point of notable interest is the Buco dell'Orso (Bear hole), which is a large cave that is passable for about 150 mts. and which opens on the slopes of Monte Colmegnone, at a height of 600 mts. It is famous because many bones of cave bears (Ursus Spelaeus) were found there in the eighteenth century. Their skeletons are in the Museum of Natural History, in Milan, and in the local Town Hall.

As with all good Italian villages the religious centre is important. The Church of S. Giorgio built in the sixteenth century contains stucco work by Stefano Salterio of Como (18th century and paintings and sculptures from the seventeenth century.
