About The Experience
Enjoy the crisp air and beautiful vistas of Lake Como at this waterfront villa located close to the village of Pognana Lario. Owned for centuries by a Milanese family, the newly renovated 18th-century villa is a charming year-round vacation spot for a family or a group of friends.
Location Description

The villa is situated at the outskirts of the small village of Pognana Lario, which has a post office, cafe and food shop. Those who wish to reach Pognana Lario on foot from the villa may follow a dedicated uphill walking path for 10 minutes through the mountains to the small village center. Como, located at the southernmost tip of the lake which bears its name, is perfect for a day's outing. Sights in Como include the Duomo, the austere church of San Abbondio, the Piazza S. Fedele (with many 400-year-old buildings), and the Basilica, one of the masterpieces of the maestri comacini (Como masters). Located opposite the lake from Pognana Lario, Menaggio is a popular recreation area, with opportunities for windsurfing, water skiing, and other water-based activities. Visitors can also rent a bicycle and explore the area or take a walk down the lakeside promenade, lined with flowers. Drive down from Menaggio on the lakeshore road to Tremezzo or hop on a ferry to visit Varenna or Bellagio. Known as "la perla del lago" (the pearl of the lake), Bellagio is considered by many to be the most beautiful town in Europe. Its narrow cobbled streets, breathtaking views, impeccable homes and glorious villas make it a most enchanting spot to explore.

Exterior Description
An ancient pathway leads down to the villa from the road level – the path is alternately cobbled, equipped with steps and made of smooth sand road, and it requires a 5-min walk. The grounds contain a secluded lawn, which is ideal for older children, as well as an outdoor shower for use after lake swims and a flight of stone steps that lead to the villa’s private boat jetty. There is a terrace with a barbecue, an alfresco dining area with a table for 4 and two sun loungers. From the street level there is access by foot to public parking and boat rentals. The public parking area is a 5-minute walk from the villa and is about 150 steps on 300 m of path (not suitable for the very young or those with walking difficulties). Guests may use the villa’s private garage during their stay, which is situated across the lake, in Laglio.
