Milan Expo 2015 - the next world's fair

To be held in Milan, Italy, it will explore the theme 'Feeding the Planet, Energy for Life' for six months from 01 May 2015 to 31 October 2015. Milan’s Expo comes with its 20 million plus expected visitors.

Bearing in mind the sheer number of anticipated guests and current residence, finding accommodations for the Expo can be daunting. Consider the alternative with its many benefits:
When visiting Expo 2015 guests can book ahead at the Lake Como Beach Resort and Villas for a comfortable private, residence on Lake Como and a piece of Northern Italy. Lake Como is an easy commute to Milan and only 45 minutes by train or car. Choose this resort near Milan for the ultimate in service and comfort during the Expo 2015.

Expo Milano 2015
The Universal Exposition will focus on nutrition while still exhibiting its trademarks of technology and culture. With the renowned culinary traditions in Italy, this World’s Fair, planners decided to focus on food, with themed areas including 'The food spiral', 'What the world eats' and more.

Near the Fiera Milano fairgrounds the Expo 2015 is planned to cover 1.1 square kilometers, and will welcome more than 120 exhibitors. The merchants will display their products, but also to engage in conversations about how food quality and availability for all will fare as we progress in the future.
Villa Gabriella is a luxurious private romantic hideaway villa, with incredible personal charm. Originally built in 1744, Villa Gabriella has been lovingly cared for, restored and renovated to the highest standard. It is located in the picturesque village of Pognana Lario, on the Bellagio side of Lake Como between Como Centro and Bellagio. Most of the architecture and historic features of Villa Gabriella have been beautifully preserved and maintained with the original charm and character of the old historic Villa. Named for, a much loved, very special little girl, by the name of 'Gabriella’, the romantic villa and hideaway retreat, is nestled above Lake Como, below the ancient village of Pognana Lario in a private, tranquil, peaceful setting with direct views of Lake Como that are seemingly endless and forever changing.

                              Lake Como is one of the most unforgettable, scenic lakes in the entire world. Set in the mountains of Northern Italy, with a near perfect Mediterranean climate, this is paradise. Because of the many activities year round, the location of Villa Gabriella is fantastic; midway between the Centre of Como and Bellagio. Pognana Lario is situated in one of the most scenic locations on the lake. Both town and villa have 180° unobstructed views of the lake to the north and south as well as west. Pognana has a ferry stop and a lakeside walk for just sitting on the shores edge to daydream. With its views, villas, cobblestone streets and over 250 year old church, it is truly majestic. Guests of the villa are also welcome to the Lake Como Beach Resort for waterfront access and swimming. There are many walkways and rustic streets through the old village of Pognana that brings one back to the past. Pognana has shops, a restaurant and cafes nearby for most all of your needs.

                              Other Activities: Boating, wind sailing as well as all other summer and winter sports available on the lake .

                              About: The Lake Como Beach Resort and Villas is privately owned and personally managed by Eric and Robin who live on Lake Como with their lovely daughter, Jiselle. We strive to offer excellent customer service and personal care, to all of our very special guests: Providing you with an unforgettable experience in a beautiful, magical, waterfront setting on Lake Como. Living in both Italy and in the U.S, we are bilingual and can assist with all your holiday needs. Within our personalized services, we offer concierge services, transportation assistance, private chauffeuring services, restaurant reservations, cooking classes, boat hire (self and guided) and seaplane reservations. We can assist with weddings plans; help to arrange honeymoons, anniversaries, birthdays and family reunions. In addition to these services we offer private, professional villa management service for property owners who would like to rent their property with the security of our name behind them. Our greatest personal satisfaction is in feeling and knowing that we have helped our guests to have wonderful lifetime memories of their experience on Lake Como and with us.

                              Why Pognana Lario:
                              Named for our beautiful grand daughter Gabriella back home. Naming the Villa after her, keeps her in memory each time we hear her name. The Villa was built in the 1700's and had been in the original family until it was sold to us in 2006. We love this villa. We also enjoy the villa in the winter where we can relax and enjoy the gorgeous lake views. It is located in a very peaceful part of the lake only 10 minutes from Como and 15 from Bellagio. It is close enough to everything yet very private. Perfect for a Honeymoon or Anniversary or a friend get together.
