La Moda is an historic 19th century Lake Como villa which has kept the most romantic features of its past. Its owner is an Italian fashion designer who has done a beautiful renovation, turning it into a modern home providing all the conveniences and comforts to fully enjoy a vacation with family and friends.
The amenities include air conditioned bedrooms, satellite TV, MP3 player with speaker (SoundFly), hair dryers, WiFi Internet, outdoor barbecue and a lakeside garden area for relaxing by the water.
From the villa, it is possible to walk into the village of Laglio, where there are shops and restaurants. There is a bus stop at 50 meters and a ferry less than a mile away. If you would like to tour the area by car, there is also space for parking three cars.
La Moda has a prime location, directly on the lake shore with its own private dock and lake access. The interior layout features three levels and may not be suitable for people with walking difficulties.
George Clooney's famous Lake Como residence is also in Laglio, not far away.
