A peaceful wide stone pathway leads behind the villa to the delights of Laglio.
Laglio is a charming and highly romantic fishing village, with a quaint harbour, ancient churches and stately noble villas and pastel townhouses which all provide a timeless and elegant appeal. A very good restaurant is situated in the town and amenities include a bank, grocery shop and regular bus service.
Laglio has also become famous from its celebrity residents which have included George Clooney and Brad Pitt, and this Hollywood celebrity status which contrasts so well with its charming, pretty and ancient lakeshore has only enhanced its allure for visitors on Lake Como.
Nearby the fashionable town of Cernobbio features boutique shops, antique shops and galleries as well as a fabulous family-friendly lakefront promenade with cafes, bars and ice cream shops. The world famous Vista D’Este Hotel and Golf Club, the annual events of Villa Erba and the highly acclaimed ‘Gatto Nero’ restaurant also make the town a desirable destination for visitors.
Como city is ideally situated just a 15 minutes’ drive from Laglio, providing an abundance of amenities and attractions including supermarkets, cafe-lined piazzas, boutique shopping boulevards, a wide variety of restaurants, the wonderful Duomo, the Volta Museum and the magnificent Villa Olmo.
Como city also enjoys a Lido, harbour with boat mooring facilities and a fast and frequent ferry service which services the northern Lake Como resort towns.
Two train stations in Como provide fast links to Milan and Malpensa airport and a modern motorway leads to Lugano city and Switzerland.
- Please take note that the villa has no heating services for the autumn or winter season. For this reason, we advise guests to stay in late spring or summer. -
