Exclusive Bellagio lake front villa – Ideally located within walking distance of the quaint village of Vassena, Villa Lariana is a stunning waterfront villa, enjoying its own private pebble lake-beach and jetty, breath-taking views over the Alps and proximity to Bellagio. Two beautifully restored buildings offer large and versatile accommodation for extended families wishing to enjoy their own space, as well as large communal outdoor areas. Built in the early 1900s, the main villa still retains much of its original charm and elegance thanks to a recent, meticulous renovation. Sharing the same access and grounds is a newly built chalet-style guest house, featuring contemporary state-of-the-art interiors, including floor-to-ceiling windows and glass panelled terraces, which maximise the impact of the lake view.
Villa Lariana enjoys a blissful setting in one of the most exclusive spots on Lake Como, where wealthy Italians built their own holiday homes away from the frantic life of the city. As well as an inspiring atmosphere, this villa offers plenty of opportunity to fully experience life by the lake with all the equipment you need to practise fishing, canoeing, wind-surfing and cycling. As you wake up to the awe-inspiring view of the Alps, you may decide to take a stroll to the local bakery or cafe in the attractive village of Vassena and have breakfast by the harbour where a boat service operates throughout the summer.
Lake Como has much to offer in terms of scenery, treks along mountains trails and water sports, but it also has elegant resorts such as Bellagio, with its trendy pavement cafes, restaurants and designer boutiques. Enjoy wandering the narrow, winding lanes of this beautiful village, which is situated where the lake splits into two branches, easily connected by a frequent ferry boat service. Discover the aristocratic villas surrounded by century-old trees such as Villa Carlotta, Villa Balbianello, Villa Olmo and Villa d'Este, visit the splendid walled town of Como, with its impressive Medieval cathedral, or browse around the weekly market and dine by the lake. If you take a ride on the funicular railway to the hilltop village of Brunate, you will be able to enjoy some unforgettable views of the entire lake.
