Lake Como Villas

Until you’ve visited the resplendent shores of Lake Como, you cannot begin to imagine how utterly beautiful it is. Every view seduces the eye from the rolling green slopes of the hills that surround the lake to the distant snow-capped mountains. The vast lake unfurls like a sheet of blue silk fringed by ochre and pink-hued little towns and hamlets. It is quite simply perfection!


Easily Accessed

Easily accessed by car or train from the airports of Milan or Bergamo, Lago di Como has lured the fashionable and stylish travellers for centuries.  Some of the spectacular Lake Como villas began life as summer palaces for Italian nobles.  These impressive buildings have now found a new life as hotels and restaurants and are some of the wonderful places to visit during a stay at any of Exceptional Villas Lake Como vacation rentals.


Geography

The geography and topography of the landscape around the lake sees green Summer meadows sweeping up woodland covered hillsides.  With stunning walking and hiking, you can base yourself at any of the incredible villas in Lake Como and embark on an active holiday by day coupled with the social glamour of dining at any of the beautiful lake-side restaurants that proliferate along the 171km perimeter of this Italian marvel.


Views

The scenic views to be found everywhere along the lake take on an even more romantic mantle at night.  The dark, stillness of the lake is strewn with the twinkling lights of small villages that are dotted along the horizon.  The tradition of building lone churches on high rocky escarpments, see these brilliantly lit like some gorgeous star in the night sky.  The lack of built-up urbanised areas ensures a gentle and relaxing vacation from the luxurious base of any of our fabulous Villas in Lake Como.

A discreet walking tour of the private Rockerfella Foundation in Bellagio can be followed by a divine lunch overlooking the Centre Lake. Here you will see Varenna and Menaggio along with Bellagio making up a trio of towns that sit on three different shores of the lake.


Villas In Lake Como

Some of our Luxury villas Lake Como are perfectly placed for you to take a drive to the nearby Lake Lugano – a meandering drive up through the mountains to this beautiful destination.  For history and some of the most wonderful interiors, take a trip to the Villa Balbianello – take the short water taxi from nearby Lenno so you arrive in true Lake Como style at this historic palace.  Once owned by an Italian explorer, it has been used as a location for Bond’s Casino Royale and a Star Wars film too.  If you are a gardening, architectural or design enthusiast, it is one of the most worthwhile and dazzling things to do at the Lake.

Navigating around the Lake is easily managed.  You can hop on and off any of the brilliantly run ferries (either with your car or on foot).  The timetables are strictly adhered to and so efficiently run.  If you are a family with young children, the ferries become such an exciting part of each day’s activity.  The gentle motion of the boats that whisk you from one pretty town to another, all reinforce the gentle pace of life on the lake.


Food!

… and then, of course, the food.  Italy’s regions are as distinct in terms of their scenery as they are in terms of their menus.  A table at any good restaurant around the Lake will offer you delicacies like Lavarello – a white fish plucked fresh from the lake cooked with butter and sage.  As well as various meats and game from the surrounding hills, you can enjoy delicious pasta and polenta.  If you like a meat and potatoes type of diet, Lake Como offers this at most tables.  The ingredients reflect what is grown and harvested seasonally from the large farming and fishing communities in the area.  To accompany all of this delicious fare are great wines from the excellent nearby wine producing regions of Piedmont and Tuscany.

Lake Como is for anyone who wishes to spend a romantic or active vacation in one of the world’s most beautiful places.  It’s never a destination you visit once.  It charms visitors who return again and again to discover yet another amazing facet of this Italian jewel.

Take a look at some of our Lake Como, Italy villas for rent and imagine just how wonderful it would be to wake up each day to an unequalled view across the glorious lake.  Whether you choose to lounge on your private terrace with the pretty sounds of bird song and cowbells in the distance or get out and about exploring nature in all her grandeur, Lake Como is the place to find true serenity and relaxation.  Oh, and you just might catch sight of one of the Lake’s more famous residents – the stylish George Clooney - as he moves around the lake on his boat.

As I said, this is the Italian destination that has won the hearts of visitors for centuries.  Let Exceptional Villas introduce you to it in style!
