Lake Como & George!
George Clooney is responsible for my desire to explore Lake Como. WOW! Thanks George for that. I fell in love with Lake Como from the moment I set eyes on it. There are few words that can describe it. Lake Como was the province of a few noble families, visited by artists, royalty, world leaders, and the cream of Old Hollywood. Then, in 2002, George Clooney put the tranquil Italian retreat squarely in the spotlight, and now reports have everyone from Bill Gates to Rupert Murdoch to Tom Cruise vacationing among its few magnificent Gold Coast villas.
I visit as often as I can when I am in Italy and I never want to leave. I can remember having breakfast in the Hotel Belvedere Bellagio one morning and saying to myself, I could live here! If I had the opportunity, I would live here. The magnificent Villas are perched into the mountains at the foot of the lake and below the Alps. Words can’t describe it, you must go there to feel the magic!
