The Lombardy region

Ideally situated the Villa is just a 14 minutes drive away from the famous resort town of Bellagio and a 20 minute drive away from Lecco, the historical capital of Lake Como.

Bellagio is a beautiful town to explore with a bustling and vibrant visitor centre with boutique shops and wonderful bars and restaurants. The glorious lake front gardens of Villa Melzi are open to the public and a frequent car and passenger ferry service operates to the other golden triangle towns of Menaggio and Varenna.

Lecco is an industrial city with a rich history and offering a wide choice of modern day amenities including a convenient train service to Milan.

Bellagio:

The Resort town of Bellagio is one of the famous 'Golden Triangle' towns of Lake Como and has been highly regarded ever since the European aristocracy begun a love affair with the town from the early Victorian period.

Nowadays the town welcomes visitors as never before, with a wide variety of lakefront Cafes, Gelatarias, Restaurants and Boutique and Jewellery shops where Italian made leather and silk goods are sold. A beautiful and very romantic promenade leads visitors to the famous and exuberant Hotel Villa Serbellione and also to the historical Villa Melzi where visitors can explore the varied and far reaching landscaped lakefront Gardens, which are open to the public.

Visitors can explore the town by bike, foot or car. A car is highly advisable for visitors staying in the area for convenience and so that the Lake is more accessible.

Alternatively if you wish to explore the other famous Resort towns of Varenna and Menaggio a frequent Passenger and Car Ferry service operates from the town throughout the season.

Oliveto Lario

Lombardy - Lake Como Area:

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 spriing 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).
