The beautiful Villa dei Sogni, overlooking the “Pearl of Lario”, certainly lives up to its name – the Villa of Dreams. Each and every corner of this amazing property has been well thought out and finished to the highest quality assuring its house guests a most comfortable stay. From the wine cellar on the ground floor to the kitchen so well-equipped it would satisfy even the most discerning chef; from the pool area surrounded by a perfectly manicured garden to the flat-screen TV with a wide selection of satellite channels and a villa-wide sound system – the owners of Villa dei Sogni have gone above and beyond to make sure that your every whim is catered for at this beautiful property.
The view is definitely one that dreams are made of – whether you look west towards Tremezzo and the beautiful Villa Carlotta, East towards the Grigne Mountain range or due north for that picture-postcard view of Bellagio’s iconic promontory and all the three branches of Lake Como – not to mention the Alps rising majestically in the background. Just try and drag yourself away from the terrace, whether you are enjoying a meal al fresco or simply relaxing in one of the sun loungers!
In addition to having the most amazing views and comforts, this beautiful property is also well located for those looking to get out and about and explore the area. With the very efficient local boat service just an easy five-minute drive down the hill in the heart of Bellagio’s historical center, exploring the lake from your villa home base could not be easier. For those looking to head further afield, you can be in Lecco in just 35 minutes or in Como in just 45 minutes, with Milan, Bergamo and Lugano (Switzerland) within an easy 90 minutes drive…
For those times when you don’t have chef service at the property, you could be sitting down in one of three restaurants or pizzerias, eating some of the best brioche you’ll ever taste at the pastry store or mingling with the locals at the local bar and small grocery store within an easy 2-minute drive. Of course, the historical center of Bellagio also boasts a wide range of stores, bars/restaurants and pizzerias to choose from.
