Switzerland is just across the mountains and Lake Lugano, although very different, is very beautiful and offers walks and shopping. St. Moritz, the jet set resort is a few hours north of the lake and I can offer you the possibility to ride on the Bernina express train, across glaciers to enjoy breathtaking views.
Villa del Sole is only a 5 minutes drive away from the delightful town of Argegno.20 minute drive away from Cernobbio where the world famous Grand Hotel Villa D'Este is to be found and also the Villa Erba, congress and exhibition centre. The city of Como is a 20 drive away and of course Como is the silk capital of Italy so there are many silk factory outlets and a very interesting silk museum to visit.

Lake Como is famous for its villas and gardens. World famous Bellagio is just across the lake and is home to the Villa Serbelloni, belonging to the Rockefeller foundation of New York and also the Villa Melzi, built in 1800.
