Villa Ala di Levante
About the home
Villa Ala di Levante is one of the oldest mansions in Menaggio. Menaggio is on lake Como not far from Milan near the Swiss border with Lugano, the house was built in the 17th century. It was embellished and modernised and is a wonderful house , where the family, that still owns it , passes part of the year. It has a very homely atmosphere and is exquisitely furbished. The living, dining room and kitchen are on the ground floor and have all French windows onto the garden. Although directly on the boulevard, a high hedge and Mediterranean trees and bushes offer privacy and seclusion.

The oldest golf course in Italy is in Menaggio and world known for its panoramic views and restaurant. The rich and famous have discovered it also, so you may find yourself in good company! Actually Lake Como is becoming a very attractive area for film stars.
The Lombardy / Lake Como Area region
Lake Como is on the south side of the Swiss Alps and benefits from a sheltered position against the cold winds from northern Europe. The summers are warm ( 25-30 degrees C) but with a lovely breeze in the afternoons, autumn and springtime are adorable and winters are bright and coldish with nearly no rain. At midday you enjoy your cappuccino and read your paper in your garden or at a coffee-shop terrace.
Lake Como was already known to the Romans( visit churches and archaeological sites) , from 12th century the passes through the high Alps leading from and into Italy were extensively used by the locals for trade or more or less peaceful wanderings. In the 18th century it was discovered by the rich Milanese families who built their summerhouses to get away from the humidity of the town. some of these villa's are open to the public and their gardens are famous ( villa Carlotta in Tremezzo, Villa Melzi in Bellagio, Villa Balbaniello in Lenno)
The Menaggio area
Who loves mountains: Lake Como is surrounded by 1000 m. high mountains. Excellent for walking, hiking and biking, but also a relaxing drive in your car will make you discover medieval villages where live seems stand still.
Como, Milan, Bergamo and Lugano ar all worth a day trip, either for admiring historic buildings, or for shopping.

We spent a week in this Villa and we could not have asked for more.
From the first moment when we arrived and met the owners to seeing the beautifully decorated villa with its antique furnishings, the wonderful views from the bedrooms to the evening meals taken in the court yard. a lifetime of memories none of our party of 11 will ever forget.
