On The Shores of Lago d' Como, Nesso is on the road from the city of Como to Bellagio, offering a postcard view of the lake. You will know you are in Italy the minute you arrive. The house is situated lakefront on a private lane of a quiet little Italian village, dating back to Roman times, close to lake attractions and Milan, with easy trips to famous Italian cities.
Villa Rosina, owned by the Famiglia Pertusini for centuries, is a perfect peaceful lakeside respite that puts you front and center on the lake looking west over the wonders of this region. The house is located off the main road via a waterfall crossed lane, down a garden staircase. Fling open the shutters once inside, walk out onto the patio….It's really a postcard view you have here on this private property that comes with a lakeside garden, small dock by the shore where you can jump into the water and short walk to town.
Villa Rosina is perched on the shore of Como where the lake activity of boats coming and going can be enjoyed from the terrace over a morning café or an evening aperitif. Nesso is within walking distance and has been a lakeside village from Roman times. It is your little step back in time. With great views, lovely gardens of cherry and chestnut trees next to the house.

Excellent place for a quite and relax vacation
Beautiful property with water front, a private dock from where you can jump into the lake and beautiful terrace for enjoying the evenings. You only need to know that you will need to walk up and down long stairs when moving around the property and the whole area, which is normal as this is a house in the mountains side! -my mom who is 76 didn't have issues though. Parking is private for a few cars and is close by up the stairs. The property are actually 3 independent houses/apartments all of them very comfortable. My favourite would be the bottom one as it hashould the biggest terrace, then the middle one which also had a big balcony/terrace and beautiful views and the least favourite would be the top one which hashould no balcony but a huge opening window facing the lake.
We spent a great time and both Lino and signora Silvana were very helpful.
Nesso is a quite and very nice town with some activities to to, mostly water /based like swimming and jumping from the roman bridge near the waterfall. The ferry also stops here so you can visit other towns around the like by boat. The bus stop is right at the entrance of the property (from the main road you need to walk down the private road around 50 mts) very happy!
Most romantic relaxing vacation ever!
The setting was amazing! We were so close to the water - the house literally borders the lake. We awoke every morning and had coffee on the deck and made sure we were home every evening to watch the sunset with a glass of fabulous Italian wine. There is nothing as relaxing as this lake view and the sound of the water lapping on the rock below. We were originally going to stay a week but we decided to extend our stay to a week and a half.
The property is in Nesso, halfway between Bellagio & the town of Como. We loved staying in this centuries old village and spent a lot of time walking crooked paths along the lake to find this town's treasures. There is a roman bridge and several waterfalls that took our breath away. We walked every morning and all of the locals greated us with Buon Giorno and were very friendly.
Another great find in this small town is the Tre Rose Restaurant. We could walk from the house. The proprietor, Antoinetta, was always there from morning til night and made sure that our experience was always perfect. We decided that the pizza and pastas were the best on the lake but maybe the lake view had something to do with that.
During the day, we walked on a charming path (10 min.) to the ferry dock. One day we took the ferry to Como and walked around the Piazza with all of the shops surrounding the Duomo (Cathedral). Then we went to Chernobbio where there are more shops and the most beautiful resort, the Villa Deste, where we had lunch. This is not to be missed.
The house itself was really clean and well appointed. We found it had everthing we needed. There is a small local grocery a short walk away (5 min.) although we did the majority of shopping in Bellagio or Como.
I highly recommend this property for anyone who wants to experience Lake Como at it's best. We were here to see the Lake and ended up with the most fabulous view of it we could imagine.
A wonderful place
This pretty and spacious property was exactly as advertised, and provided a wonderful location for our family holiday. The lakeside position gave spectacular views over the lake and the outside space was perfect for relaxing in a quiet, private place. The house was clean and well-maintained, we had excellent support from Silvana, the property manager who lives nearby. I would certainly recommend this property to friends, and is ideal for families. The house is divided into two apartments (ground floor and first floor), and each accommodates six people.
Access to the house is via 87 concrete steps down from the access lane where a car can be parked. The vehicle access down the lane is challenging, but entirely manageable in a small or medium sized car. There is an interesting additional feature of a mountain stream entering the lake adjacent to the house, which can be torrential after it rains. This stream does occasionally flow onto the lane, although this never caused any access problems.
The lake is chilly and choppy, so taking a float into the water to rest worn-out swimmers is a good idea. Entry and exit from the water will be considerably easier when the jetty (currently under construction) is completed.
The local restaurant, Locanda Tre Rose, is 15 minutes walk along the main road, and offers a good range of pizza and pasta dishes. The local 'alimentari' (mini-market) is a ten-minute walk, just past the church, and is a good source of essentials, like milk, fresh bread daily, cheese, cured meats, and wine. Fresh meat was available on certain days.
The area is excellent for confident road-cyclists, and the scenery along the lakeside roads is breathtaking. A ride up onto the Piano del Tivano and on to the summit of Colma di Sormano was a highlight. There are few pavements and no cycle paths in the immediate vicinity of Nesso, so cycling with young children is not feasible.
There is a company renting 'speedboats' in Lezzeno, which offers a great day out, and a completely different perspective on the lake.
The most relaxing way of getting the family about is by the regular bus service which runs between Como and Bellagio. The bus stop is on the main road at the top of the access lane. Tickets can be bought in the 'alimentari' in Nesso, and Cafe San Remo in Bellagio, so leave enough time to walk to the shop before catching the bus. Passenger and car ferries run from Bellagio, and get you across the lake to Menaggio and Varenna.
Thank you very much for your beautiful review. We are always pleased to hear from our wonderful guests. The steps can be a bit challenging because the waterfront properties are built on a steep mountainside and have driveways instead of garages. The steps were left rustic on purpose to eliminate slippage, we are definitely considering cobblestone in the future. My parents, who were in their eighties, lived in the lower home and would walk these steps several times a day. So it might be a problem navigating these steps for those that are not used to this activity or those people that may have physical problems. We never did count the steps but have been told that there are forty steps down to the main house.
20 MINUTES FROM BELLAGIO TOWN OR COMO. MILAN IS ABOUT 45 MINUTE. FROM COMO BY TRAIN. 2 HOURS TO VENICE.
