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. From the villa balconies, one can see all the way to Como to the South and up to Argegno to the North. Truly an amazing place to spend your vacation!
Free WIFI and parking right in front of the villa.


Other Villa Amenities: Villa Gabriella is situated on three levels and offers picture-postcard views of Lake Como, year- round, with inviting entry, easy access and off street parking. The villa includes hand carved wood entry doors and original hand carved granite staircase that continues all the way up to the third level. Murano glass lighting and stylish welcoming antiques are scattered throughout the villa. The main floor living room has a warm wood burning fireplace, dining area, kitchen and a beautiful private balcony with spectacular Lake Como views. The master bedroom is warm and cozy with lovely tasteful furnishings and private balcony, for alfresco dining, with unobstructed views of magical Lake Como. The private top level bedroom, just as beautiful and inviting as the master bedroom, comes with a queen sized bed. Directly in front of the Villa (across the Lake), is the village of Laglio where George Clooney’s villa Oleandra is located.

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.

Why Pognana Lario:
Named for our beautiful grand daughter Gabriella. 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.
