Luxurious Lake Como Villa
I visited the Villa on a beautiful December day in 2020. It was like a Spring day although It was winter and in the distance the snow capped Alps against the seasonal blossoms left me breathless. . As I approached the Villa passing the famous “Clooney compound” I knew quickly I was in for a pleasant surprise. As I approached a kind man met me in the driveway, he was the owner along with his lovely wife and nephew. “Welcome to our home,” they warmly greeted me with smiles and coffee. Before me I instantly realized that this was one of the most beautifully decorated Villas on Lake Como. This is a home, filled with treasures and the highest quality furnishings, curtains and landscaping, whereas the owners poured their souls into the theme. As the family proudly took me on the tour, it was clearly evident this home, was not just a showcase of their collectibles, it was clearly a loving home, with many warm memories.
So this beautiful Villa; is accentuated with charm and the highest quality of everything, simply everything, nothing was pared in the design to the exterior landscaping. Endless gardens with healthy, mature foliage.
