The Lombardy region
Lake Como is surrounded by striking mountains, hills and valleys, and also has much to offer in the way of cities of art. The Lake is located in the important economic and industrial region of Lombardy in northern Italy and is nestled between the two great lakes Maggiore and Garda.
The Swiss border is close by, as are the majestic Alps, where different cultures have merged over the centuries to form Lombardy's unique charm. There is a varied climate, often with snowy winters, mild springs and warm summers, but being near the water, means that it never gets too hot, and there is always the possibility of escape to the mountains also should the sunshine become too much.
Laglio is an unspoiled town situated on the road running alongside the western shore of Lake Como. It has kept its old world charm with its characterful streets and stepped lanes crossed by low bridges which join the century old houses. Independent, small local shops are nearby, and the shopkeepers are always happy to help.
Cernobbio with it's world famous Villa D'Este is 10 minutes drive away, the city of Como, the silk capital of Italy is 15 minutes away and of course Milan, one of the world's fashion leaders is 50 minutes away. You can also find 'outlet' stores nearby and if you cross the boarder into Switzerland there is no end to the shopping in elegant Lugano, while enjoying the beautiful scenery.
There are also several world class 18 hole golf courses within 30 minutes drive, the Monza Grand Prix racing track is 1 hours drive away and interesting old Italian towns such as Bergamo Verona and Venice are all within a days visit.
