The Lombardy region
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.
Private garage parking is another bonus of this very special holiday home and from the exclusive gated residence guests can easily reach the famous Menaggio & Cadenabbia Golf Club, Loveno’s tennis club and nature reserve and to the main road to Porlezza on Lake Lugano, where horse riding and cycling can be enjoyed as well as cultural day excursions to the cosmopolitan Swiss city of Lugano.
A bus service operates from nearby the property and for independent drivers the main hillside road also leads directly into the centre of the famous resort town of Menaggio in just 3 minutes. A stepped hillside path may also be used if travelling on foot. Here in Menaggio guests can enjoy picturesque cafe-lined piazzas, shop-lined boulevards and an idyllic promenade which leads to a fabulous Lido with swimming pools and sandy beach. A frequent car and passenger ferry service operates from the town to the other famous golden triangle towns of Bellagio and Varenna and to the Tremezzina shore; providing the perfect base from which to explore the many central lake attractions! Local activities for guests to enjoy include golf, tennis, cycling, hiking, swimming, kayaking, boat hire, sailing, windsurfing, paragliding and quad biking.
The easy accessibility to the ski resorts of St Moritz and Madesimo also ensures that this stunning holiday home appeals year round from the sunny mild springtime and gloriously hot summer days to the striking autumn and short winters here where golden leaves engulf all the hills and snows sweeps over the mountain tops.
