Nestled neatly in between the mountainous Swiss border and the fertile plains of Lombardy in Northern Italy, Lake Como has been synonymous with exuberant luxury and breath-taking scenery since the Romans. Just 25 miles from Milan, this mesmerising glacial lake is one of the deepest in Europe and its unique microclimate offers mild winters and dazzling Mediterranean summers.

 

The lake’s shore is peppered with stunning historic villas, huddled villages and beautifully landscaped gardens, which offer plenty of cultural and culinary distractions. Elegant Riva launches cut across the azure blue waters taxiing visitors to the traditional lakeside towns of Bellagio, Como and Varenna.

 

The lake is shaped like a wishbone, with the small towns of Bellagio, Mennagio and Lierna at the intersection of the three branches of the lake, a triangular taxi boat service operates between these, allowing you to hop between them and soak up the atmosphere.

 

The medieval town of Lierna rises from the Eastern shore, the famous castle 'Castello di Vezzio' and its white sandy beaches make this charming historical town a must see. For culture vultures, head to the world famous 'Villa Carlotta', to marvel at teh magnificent botanical gardens and artistic masterpieces.

 

The breath-taking vistas and sheer serenity of Lake Como make this the perfect location to relax and escape the strains of modern life. So we have hand-picked a selection of the finest luxury lake-side properties, to ensure you have the perfect place to rest your head.

 

Exploring the lake could not be easier for those staying in the fabulous Villa Josephine, as this property comes complete with a private boat and boat operator moored on the lakeside jetty. With five star service, a private spa and sweeping botanical gardens just one word sums it up – blissful.
