"That branch of the Lake of Como, which turns toward the south between two unbroken chains of mountains, presenting to the eye a succession of bays and gulfs, formed by their jutting and retiring ridges, suddenly contracts itself between a headland to the right and an extended sloping bank on the left, and assumes the flow and appearance of a river."[A. Manzoni, The Betrothed, Chapter 1]
That's how Alessandro Manzoni begins his famous novel "The Betrothed", describing this wonderful place that have been attracting several voyageurs and celebrities from all over the world. Como is one of Italy's most desirable locations because it is set against the backdrop of enchanting Alpine vistas and it offers holidaymakers pure beauty and tranquility that is unrivaled anywhere else in the world. It is no coincidence that many customers, both Italian and foreign, have decided to invest in a luxury lakeside property on Lake Como.
The tranquility of these places and the proximity to Switzerland and the most important cities in northern Italy, makes it a very convenient destination to reach.
The first part of the lake is well-known for its nature trails and for its picturesque streets across the old town and along the lake, as well as for the properties known as Villa Olmo, Villa d'Este and Villa Carlotta. The upper lake is mostly characterized by privately owned villas where residents spend their summer holidays escaping the stress of their home life and enjoying the unique atmosphere surrounding it which is pleasant and relaxing. Living the Lake Como Lifestyle means embracing the heart of the Italian culture: its culinary arts, its people and its incredible nature.
