Just a short drive from Bellagio, Villa Del Lago is an elegant historical villa located on the shores on Lake Como. It's known locally as the ‘Jewel of Lake Como’ and makes a wonderful base on the lake, giving visitors a perfect place to relax and discover what makes Lake Como such a beloved destination. The villa is located on Como's shore and is surrounded by a beautiful park dotted with centuries-old trees and featuring an elegant swimming pool. Around the pool you have the sunbathing area, where guests can relax with a chilled glass of white wine and enjoy the perfect Lake Como climate. On weekends and holidays (or when he escapes from city life!) the friendly, unobtrusive owner may be in his residence on the far side of the park and driveway, where he has his own parking area and garden. In addition to having the most amazing views and comforts, this beautiful property is ideally located for those looking to get out and about and explore the area. Como, Lecco, Bergamo, Milano and Lugano (in Switzerland) are all within a convenient drive of 90 minutes or less. For those who prefer their adventures on the water, your only dilemma will be deciding whether to take the public boat to visit the lake’s charming towns and villages or rent your own private boat with an English-speaking captain. Decisions, eh?
For the foodies among us, there is even more good news! Literally two minutes walk from the villa is one of the best trattorias in the entire area. You’d rather stay home? No worries- Villa Del Lago has a fabulous chef on call to come to the property and prepare a special meal for you. You might just pick up some Italian cooking techniques and secrets, too!

The area around Lake Como is one of outstanding beauty. Stretching from the Swiss Alps to the Grigne and Legnone ranges, Lake Como is guarded by spectacular mountain landscapes. Pastel-coloured villages perch along the shorelines and trail up the steep sides. In this part of Italy, there are the simplest rural dwellings as well as the palatial villas of the 18th century.
A walk around one of these central lake villages, up a cobbled avenue or across a church square, will convince visitors to pause for a moment on a sunny bench, to stop for an aperitivo at a sidewalk café or pop into a gelateria for homemade ice cream.
Whether exploring the lake by foot, car or boat, it should be a leisurely experience. Choose from one of the numerous activities the area offers, or simply enjoy the comfort of the splendid private villa.
