The village of Cadenabbia is a great staring point to discover the lake. In the heart of the Lariano Triangle. Il Lario is the Latin name of the lake and therefore Lake Como is also known as “il Lario”. This part of the lake is claimed to be the prettiest and is home to some of the more important villages such as Menaggio, Varenna and Bellagio. Cadenabia is in the central lake area and at the beginning of the “Tremezzina” - the western shore of the lake that goes from Cadenabbia to Lenno.
Just down the road from Villa Lodi is the world famous Villa Carlotta. Today a museum and a botanical garden and probably the most famous and beautiful Villa in the north of Italy. It is famous for its Azaleas in the spring and houses over 150 species. At Villa Carlotta you can enjoy a full day out and walk in the various areas of the garden enjoying views of the lake from the different corners of the botanical garden.
In Griante, a nearby hamlet you will find an Anglican Church, the only one on Lake Como. The “Tremezzina” area has for many centuries been loved and treasured by English guests. The Menaggio Cadenabbia Golf Club, just a 10 minute car drive away was founded by English patrons, and today hosts celebrities such as George Clooney as members. Always popular with the rich and famous, Lake Como is home to both Italian and International celebrities, the reasons are just out the window of Villa Lodi!
