- About The Experience
An ideal location, this three-bedroom apartment occupies the main floor and garden level of a renovated Art Nouveau villa nestled alongside Lake Como. Guests will enjoy relaxing in the private lakeside hot tub, walking to the small local village and exploring the nearby lake shore.
- Location Description
The property is located in an exclusive neighborhood along Lake Como, 500 meters from the village of Laglio, a tiny, scenic haven with two restaurants and a bar. Both the village and the lake shore (5-minute walk away) can be reached on foot by following a short but steep street from the villa to the lake road (shared with cars). The apartment enjoys stunning views of the lake and is positioned between the Villa d’Este hotel and a grand private villa. The best way to view the stately villas and surrounding gardens is by boat. The neighboring town of Como is 7 km away. 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). The town also has an array of restaurants serving authentic Italian food as well as cuisines from around the world. Also 7 km away is the town of Cernobbio, home to the prestigious golf club of Villa D’Este. Up the coast is Menaggio, 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. Ferry service takes visitors to Varenna or Bellagio (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. While the village is within walking distance, a car is necessary for exploring the surrounding area.
