The Lake Como is an enchanted place, considered as one of the most beautiful destinations of Europe. A land of picturesque landscapes, flowery gardens and mountains reflecting in lakes basin waters. A portion of Lombardy to be visited and lived intensely, looking for old mansions, botanic gardens, museums and palaces.
Endless natural beauties and an original and fascinating artistic heritage in which three main trends may easily be outlined. The first more garish, is formed by the Lake Como Villas, unique in the world both for their architectural and landscape value and for the treasures they contain. The second, more hidden and cultured, is formed by the incredible concentration in this territory of Romanesque churches, that testify a brilliant and flourishing Middle Age.
The third asset, more evocative and intriguing, consists of the many fortifications of different ages, with with their own asset of anecdotes and legends, reminding of a turbulent and adventurous past .
Other Activities: Seaplane tour
Golf: Lake Como has many golf courses which can be easily reached by car:
* The Menaggio & Cadenabbia Golf Club is a cradle of Italian beauty. A corner reminiscent of Britain overlooking Lake Como. A natural course with old world appeal. A heritage of golfing culture. The elevated position of its course provides a breathtaking view over some of Lake Como’s most beautiful scenery towards Argegno on the one hand and towards the arm of Lake Lecco on the other skimming over Bellagio and the peaks of the Central Alps. Menaggio is a characteristic preAlpine course with holes sloping upwards and downwards.
* The path of the Golf Villa d’Estate was built in 1926. It stands on the hills overlooking Lake Como Montorfano, in a forest of over thirty thousand trees. Chestnut, pine and birch help to create a scenario of outstanding natural beauty.

* The Pinetina Golf Club, seventy hectares of green inside the Pineta Park Appiano Gentile and Tradate with its forests of pine sylvestre, birch, oak and chestnut trees, far from roads, noise and daily stress. Here, on the fantastic 18holes, you can hear the breath of nature, to observe the flight of the falcon and the race of the hare.
*The Golf Club Lanzo set within an age-old beech wood and framed by magnificent scenery, it is extremely challenging on account of its double tee-offs and natural hazard
Year Purchased: 2010
About the owner: Hi,
My name is Sveva and I live in the beautiful and romantic historic center of Como.
In the year 2010 me and my brother, the architect, decided to renovate the attic above my flat into a modern and exclusive penthouse and now I'm very proud of the result.
I take care of the house in every little detail because I want my guests feel like home.
Decorating homes has always been my favorite hobby and my passion.
I am sure that you will have a unique experience in Como !
Why the Owner Chose Como: I just can write down what the architect said:
' I must thank Sveva for giving me the chance to do what I like best. As an architect I was so happy to give her place a new life. Beauty is in simple things. The site had such strong vibrations and history that only with a plain and fair approach it could turn out in a modern yet friendly house: a perfect place to live. Now that my job is done I can tell that her concern in giving the best she can when it comes to please her guests suits perfectly with the image I had in mind when the project started. I would recommend this solution because it was intended to give friendly and familiar feelings and my sister is working hard to make it concrete.'
The Unique Benefits at this Apartment: When I saw this house for the first time, I simply fell in love with it for its fantastic position, its atmpsphere and its luminosity.
