Villa Perla del Lago
Villa | 3 bedrooms | sleeps 8
“Villa Perla del Lago” dates back to approximately 1920. It is located in a beautiful sunny position overlooking the lakeside town of Domaso, on the western shore of lake Como. It offers tourists breathtaking views of the lake and surrounding mountains and countryside.
In 2011/2012 the villa has been completely renovated and is now available (rentable) for short periods.
This recent renovation has kept and partly restored its Liberty style, with its painted ceilings, walls and antic furniture typical of the villas in this area of that period.
Only the kitchen and bathrooms have been updated with modern and practical appliances.
The villa has a 500 sq m garden, 100 sq m terrace, a marquee and wrought iron garden furniture, a barbeque, a pool (8 x 4 m), sun beds and an outside shower.
Sports enthusiasts have a wide choice of water sports to choose from such as water skiing, surfing, kite surfing and sailing.
For those who prefer a more relaxing holiday “Villa Perla del Lago” is ideal just for sunbathing and enjoying the natural beauty of the surrounding scenery.

The Lombardy region
Lake Como also known as Lario, is a lake of glacial origin. The lake shaped much like the character "Y" is the third largest lake in Italy (145 km2), 46km long and at an altitude of 199mt above sea level. It is surrounded by mountains – the highest, rising above Colico, is Mount Legnone (2609mt) – with many rivers flowing into it, the Adda river being the most important and its only affluent followed by the river Mera.
Owing to its variety of landscapes which make the lake region extremely fascinating, it was in the past the theme of many Romantic poets. Lake Como offers innumerable shades of colours: the teal-blue of its waters, the intense green of the forest covered mountains, the pure white of its snow-capped peaks, the gay colours of the houses which skirt the shores or the grey of the stone houses at the foot of the mountains.
The whole territory surrounding Lake Como is characterized by steep slopes where it is easy to spot the distinctive forms of towns and villages as well as its historic villas and mansions. Unlike other areas, through the ages Lake Como has in fact always been a favourite destination not for normal tourism but one of artists and aristocrats who would sojourn here in search of quiet moments to reflect and contemplate.
Despite its limited extension Lake Como is one of the few territories where it is possible to find such a variety of landscapes. In a short distance one can move from the lake to the mountains, from touristic towns to small hillside villages, from a natural oasis to ski-slopes. It is perhaps for this reason that travellers from northern Europe cannot resist the beauty of such views and make it a point of stopping over.
Lake Como weather is generally mild: the Alps protect it from the north winds and its body of water reduces the temperature jump.
In winter, above all on the sunny side of the Altolario (the most northern part of the lake), temperatures are never rigid and the summer is never torrid thanks to a dense vegetation and the lake breeze.
The plant-life is varied: one can find camellias, azaleas, rhododendrons, magnolias, palm trees, cypress and conifer trees; going up the hills there are chestnut groves and oak woods; further up in the mountains beech trees, fir trees, larch and pine woods which lead up to the high altitude pastures.
Wildlife is also varied and copious: with a little luck it is easy to catch a glimpse at deer, roe deer, chamois antelope and groundhogs.
Domaso. Due to its position over a long and flat plain, this old fishing village offers a wide view over a vast area of Lake Como, as far as Bellagio where one can catch a glimpse of the two branches of the lake which separate.
Also thanks to its location and climate, Domaso is one of the lake villages which best lends itself to tourism; the “Breva” wind which blows from the south attracts yachtsmen and windsurfers from all over Europe. The particularity of this wind is given to the fact that it is constant and therefore ideal for windsurfing. It is mainly for this that the area offers several nautical centres with schools of windsurfing, water-skiing, kite-surfing, sailing, catamaran and canoeing.
The historic centre of Domaso is characterized by narrow and enchanting alleyways which, over the centuries, have maintained traits of their past. It is thanks to its temperate climate, its perceptible history and thriving plant-life that Domaso is the ideal holiday destination for visitors in need of relaxation but at the same time it offers many alternatives for sport-lovers. In addition to traditional water sports close by there are tennis courts and football grounds, gyms and fitness centres. At just 10km from Domaso there is horse-riding club and at 20 km an 18-hole golf-course.
The mountains and their fantastic trails which surround the village will not pass unnoticed to lovers of trekking and mountain-biking.
Above Domaso sits the typical village of Vercana: from here the Lake Como landscape can be admired in all its splendour. The main characteristics of this village are its peace and quiet and the wonderful trails for nature-lovers: walking through woods and pastures one can reach the mountain slopes of Vercana and the hill-country of Graglio (1420mt).
