The local area


The reason why the current owners' parents chose the local area is that it is a very easy commute to Milan, where they worked, but also to Como where the children went to school and ideal for great family day trips on the lake.


The Swiss border is only about 15 minutes' drive from the house and a visit to Lugano is always fun if you are there.  Lake Garda and Maggiore are also easy distance for a day trip. There are golf courses, designers clothes outlets, fun water parks and tree top walks to entertain the whole family.


Lake Como is a lake of glacial origin in Lombardy, Italy. It has an area of 146km2, making it the third-largest lake in Italy, after Lake Garda and Lake Maggiore. At over 400 metres deep, it is one of the deepest lakes in Europe, and the bottom of the lake is more than 200 metres below sea level.


Lake Como has been a popular retreat for aristocrats and wealthy people since Roman times, and a very popular tourist attraction with many artistic and cultural gems. It has many villas and palaces and many famous people have or have had homes on the shores of Lake Como, such as Matthew Bellamy, Madonna, George Clooney, Gianni Versace, Ronaldinho, Sylvester Stallone, Julian Lennon, Richard Branson, Ben Spies, and Pierina Legnani. Lake Como is widely regarded as one of the most beautiful lakes in Europe.
