The villa can boast one of the most beautiful views of Lake Como, which can be enjoyed from the terrace which overlooks Isola Comacina (the only island in the lake) and the 'Punta del Balbianello' where one of the most beautiful villas of the Lake, Villa Balbianello, is situated. The villa is also a famous film location for movies such as Star Wars, Casino Royale and Oceans Twelve.
The location is great because in addition to ensuring total tranquility, the lake can be accessed by foot along with all services such as restaurants, grocery, bank, etc.,. For keen walkers there is also the Greenway, which is a pedestrian walkway that runs from Colonno to Griante from which there are some magnificent views and which passes directly below the Residence. The Greenway also provides access and makes it easy to reach Ossuccio and Lenno which offer further attractions and additional services.
