Five of the best villas on Lake Como

Lake Como

Lake Como is one of the three most famous lakes in Italy and has been popular with International visitors for centuries. Renaissance villas, castles and beautiful gardens are a reminder of the times when Como was a playground of the European elite. Its legacy continues today with Milanese fashion designers, footballers and Hollywood film stars all gracing its shores but you certainly don't have to be a celebrity to take part and a holiday in Como need not break the bank. In comparison to its famous sister Garda, Como is a more tranquil and wooded lake with beautiful surrounding countryside. Just one hour from bustling Milan, the lake offers a calm and magical combination of Mediterranean shrubbery and mountain peaks. Good food, a relaxed lifestyle, warm summers and autumns make it a perfect destination for holidays.
