Laglio villa description

Apartment Zar is a spacious and luxury apartment located in a recently restored 19th-century villa in Laglio, close to the famous George Clooney's residence. Shops and restaurants are within walking distance (500 meters/550 yds), and the lake shore can be reached in a 5 minutes walk.

The apartment has a private garden (250 sqm/2700 sq ft) and is built on two floors. It offers breathtaking views of Lake Como from several rooms, including the living room (with one full wall of windows) and the master bedroom. The apartment has an independent entrance from the garden, overlooking well-kept lawns and the lake.

In the corner of the manicured garden is a hot tub for four people where guests can relax and enjoy the stunning lake views. A sun terrace is furnished with sunbeds and deckchairs. A patio with vaulted ceilings overlooking the lake is equipped with a large dining table. Private parking is inside the property.

The convenient location, just 8 km from Cernobbio and 12 km from the center of Como, and easy access to public transportation makes Apartment Zar an ideal destination for touring Lake Como. A lot of activities such as water sports, golf, tennis and great shopping are possible. The closest train station is in Como, just 15 minutes from the villa. You can reach Milan in 1 hour by car, or you can cross the border at Lugano to reach Switzerland in just 40 minutes. Just across the Swiss border is Foxtown a designer outlet village with Prada, Dolce and Gabbana, Gucci and Ferragamo outlets.

Main floor (210 sqm; fully air-conditioned):
Entrance foyer
Spacious living room (80 sqm/862 sq ft) with dining area (seats 8)
Study/library with satellite TV, printer, Internet WIFI connection, lap top and Skype phone for international and local calls
Fully equipped modern eat-in kitchen with microwave, dishwasher, coffee maker; breakfast table seats 4
1 spacious master bedroom (25 sqm/270 sq ft) with queen bed (150 x 200 cm), private balcony and access to the garden
2 bathrooms (one with Jacuzzi tub, the other with Jacuzzi shower)

The lower level is independent, comfortable, cozy and very private, but not as luxurious as the main living main floor. For this reason, we recommend Apartment Zar for one couple or one couple with older children. The downstairs apartment has two accesses: one from the stairs and the other from the garden.

Lower Level (76 sqm/818 sq ft; sleeps 2+2; no a/c but naturally cool):
1 bedroom with 2 twin beds (beds can not be joined; bed size 90 x 190 cm
1 bedroom with double sofabed, fitness equipment, plasma TV
1 bathroom with shower
Laundry room with washer, dryer, ironing board, iron

About the region

Lake Como is renowned for its luxuriant vegetation and its mild climate. In the winter, in the sunniest areas such as Tremezzina, the temperature is never too cold. In the summer it is moderated by a very pleasant breeze. In Como, you should plan to visit the cathedral, the Piazza San Fedele with many 400-year-old buildings, the basilica, one of the masterpieces by the maestri comacini (masters of Como), the very austere church of San Abbondio as well as the early Romanesque basilica of San Corpoforo.
Lake Como is renowned for its exquisite villas, and probably the most famous one is Villa Carlotta, a perfect combination of a luxurious interior (beautiful stuccos, lovely ceiling frescoes and a great art collection, including an Eros and Psyche by Antonio Canova) and a luxuriant exterior (over 500 species of plants, trees and shrubs from all over the world). Tremezzo is another lovely lakeside town. Here you will find a classic lakeside promenade as well as many wonderful old villas, some of which have been converted to hotels. From here you can take a car ferry over to Bellaggio and Varenna on the opposite shore. On the southern shore is Bellaggio, la perla del lago (the pearl of the lake), considered by many to be the most beautiful town in all of Europe. Its narrow cobbled streets, breathtaking views, impeccable homes and marvellous villas make it a most enchanting spot to spend your own unforgettable 'month by the lake.'

Como: The city of Como is a 10 minutes drive from the villa. The old city centre is surrounded by medieval walls, here you can enjoy the view of charming corners, ancient monuments and lots of fashionable shops. Como is famous for its silk factories and luxurious fabric. There are many outlet stores and boutiques where scarves ties and fabrics by major designers can be bought at excellent prices.

Shopping in Como: Factory Store/shopping centre - Foxtown, Mendrisio Switzerland
A shopping centre just a few kilometres from the villa which offers products from the best known international companies and brands at factory prices, with discounts from 30% to 70% for intelligent shopping (bring your passport).

Leisure Activities: Water Sports: water skiing, boat hire, jet skis, kayaks, regattas with the Cannottieri Moltrasio yacht club. Hiking: marked paths leading to the top of Mount Bisbino. Casinos: Campione d'Italia Casino, Mendrisio Casino at Fox Town, Lugano Casino.

Please do not hesitate to contact us for further information.
