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, in spring 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).


The charming rustic village of Colonno offers an authentic Italian backdrop to the modern property and provides a choice of local amenities with a frequent lake bus service to the many charming and famous towns including Lenno, Tremezzo, Menaggio and Como.

If guests are driving the property is conveniently situated from the main visitor towns, services and attractions on Lake Como from, being centrally located along the visitor friendly western coast.

Just a short drive will take guests to the wide choice of amenities which can be found in the modern yet historical village of Lenno. The village is also home to the jewel of Lake Como, Villa Balbianello, an extraordinary place to visit, with spectacular views from its splendid gardens and easily accessible by foot or taxi boat from the bay in Lenno.

The very prominent attraction of Villa Carlotta, with its breathtaking botanical gardens and popular central lake position attracts a high number of visitors and can be easily reached by car from Colonno in approximately 10 minutes. Both villas play host each year to wonderful music recitals and aperitif evenings which feature either indoors or in the romantic grounds.

Just under a 15 minute drive away from the property guests can also conveniently use the car and passenger ferry service from Cadenabbia, which operates between the famous golden triangle towns and which offers a fantastic way of seeing Lake Como.

The famous resort town of Menaggio can be reached by car in less than 20 minutes and its charming visitor appeal makes it a wonderful place to enjoy the day, with cafe-lined lake front piazzas, interesting passageways and a pretty promenade leading to the popular Lido with swimming pools and beach. Boutique shops and delicatessens also provide an interesting shopping experience.
