About Regina Residence
We live in England and have two daughters and sons-in-law and four grandchildren. We pay very frequent visits to Italy.
Regina Residence purchased this Apartment in 2007
Why Regina Residence chose Laglio
We fell in love with the lake when we visited the stunning town of Bellagio on Lake Como during a touring holiday. The scenery is breathtaking and the towns and villages offer unrivaled opportunities to view the majestic lake and visit all the famous landmarks and villas. Having done our homework we decided to buy our apartment in Laglio – though at the time we didn’t realize we had a famous neighbour – George Clooney.
What makes this Apartment unique
Our apartment is ideally situated on the Western shore (sunniest) just 10 kilometres from Como town and 50 kilometres from Milan and shopping in these two towns is delicious! There is a lot of summer activity on the lake – sailing, windsurfing, seaplane and 2 funiculars. In winter Madesimo and St Moritz are within reach for ski-ing. There are 3 restaurants within walking distance, as well as 3 mini markets, a superb butcher, and a post office. There is also a small public beach. The uniqueness of our apartment is the unhindered views, both up and across the lake. There are no buildings between us and the lake and within a few steps of the gateway you are at the lakeside.

Little piece of heaven
Amazing views in a terrific little locale with da Luciano and la locanda - a treasure of a vacation!
Well appointed unit located in a relatively quiet neighborhood with excellent view of lake. Lived up to descriptions of amenities.
Grocery store within walking distance. When we choose not to enjoy local restaurants we were able to cook at home.
Property manager extremely helpful with transportation and local recommendations.
Local public transportation limited during our stay in May.
We loved the apartment. This would be the best apartment we’ve booked in over ten years of VRBOs. Spacious, clean and the finishes are tops. We visited before the season opened so not all restaurants were open but this did not detract from our trip nor did the cooler temps. Much preferred to hot temps and mobs of people in high season. Buy your bus tickets in the shop next to the barber, head south about two blocks down. Heading north about four blocks is a small grocery store, came in handy for milk, eggs etc. Communication was flawless as was check in with Cinzia, and she picked us up at the train station and took us back which made our travel smoother. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would return again. And let’s not forget the views, gorgeous. Lake Como does not disappoint. Highly recommend this unit.
Thank you so much for your generous review. We are delighted that you enjoyed your stay on the lake and it is good to know that we are providing the high-level of accommodation that our clients require and enjoy. We agree with you that the views are stunning, both across and up the lake, and are magical also at night when the lights on the far side of the lake gradually come alive.
We regard very highly our Property Manager who never ceases "to go the extra mile" to ensure guests have a supported arrival and departure and who is available throughout their stay.

Beautiful views and a great location on Lake Como
We loved our stay in Lake Como at this lakeside villa. The apartment was clean and comfortable and the views were beautiful. We opened up all the windows and had a terrific cross breeze. The town of Laglio is very quiet but the people are so welcoming. There are good restaurants (La Locanda) and a wonderful coffee/happy hour spot (Da Luciano Bottega Cafe) within a short walk. Several towns over in Carate/Urio there is another good restaurant (Il Filio d'Olio) as well as a ferry stop which will take you to points around the lake. We did not rent a car because we did not mind walking to the bus or the ferry but you may not want to walk or rely on the bus system as we did. I also highly recommend a private boat tour. We used Alberto, I don't remember the name of his charter company but they know him at the Bottega Cafe where he picked us up at the dock in front of the Cafe. We would definitely repeat this trip!
We are delighted to hear just how much you managed to do in your time at Regina Residence. We are so glad our apartment met with all your expectations, We can tell immediately that the Lake has worked its magic on you! There is, as you say, so much to see and do and should you ever wish to return we should be happy to welcome you back.
The property was perfect, the location was incredible, we had an amazing holiday.
Thank you so much for your review. We are thrilled that you found the apartment and views stunning. Glad the lake worked it's magic for you. We have been associated with the lake for 11 years and it never ceases to breathtaking.
