Style Notes

Modern Italian. This glamorous villa makes the most of pared-back Italian style with high quality fittings and furnishings. It is furnished in a cool contemporary style with air conditioning, ceramic floors and modern artwork. There are top of the range Italian appliances in the kitchen and a Gaggenau pizza oven. The contemporary and stylish living space has been furnished by Fendi and features a Bang and Olufsen entertainment system. The villa balances oriental influences against sugar cube white modernity. We love the lakefront vista, the infinity pool and the sleek yet welcoming bedrooms.

Lake Como has been our passion for many years. We visited as children, playing in the lake, chasing the trout, walked the mountains, visited lakeside villages by ferry boat and had awesome life-affirming family time here year after year. Our own children had the same experience in a safe, healthy environment. The location is loved by celebrities but it is its down to earth, yet glamorous old world charm that we all love. Children are not just welcomed by the Italians, they are celebrated and adored. How can you fail to Love Como!

Lake Como, Italian Lakes

Speed boats, pizzerias and lakeside views

Lake Como has hit the headlines as a celebrity spot, full of film stars, rock stars and blockbuster villas. Beside the glitz and glamour, you’ll find plenty of family fun from speed boats to hire to lakeside pizzerias for lazy lunches and the Como/Brunate funicular for vertiginous views of the deep blue lake.
