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.

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.

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.
