Villa Bianca is an elegant family villa located on the shores of Lake Como just a short drive from Bellagio. The owner is so fond of this amazing property that he decided to bring it back to its original splendor. Its strategic position right on the Lake allows you to enjoy breathtaking views while relaxing poolside in the privacy of the extensive and beautifully maintained villa grounds. The fantastic location of the property is the perfect base for exploring the Lake Como area - the villa also enjoys a landing stage close by where your private boat can come and pick you up for wonderful tours on the Lake visiting the villages and villas scattered on the Lake's shores. For city lovers Como, Lecco, Bergamo, Milano, Lugano are all within a convenient easy 90 minutes drive or less from the property. Location: A single county that runs along the Lecco branch of the lake between the principle town of Lecco and Bellagio, Oliveto Lario is made up of the charming villages of Onno, Vassena and Limonta. These small fractions are all favorites among locals, Milanese who make their way to the lake on weekends, and foreigners who want to experience the lifestyle and beauty of Lake Como. Originally Roman settlements, the small villages each have something to offer. Onno, the name itself describing the mild climate enjoyed here, is well-known for the cultivation of olives. Brought by the Romans and continued to the present day, the area yields close on 200 quintals of olives per year. We recommend you take a look in to the Baroque Chiesa San Pietro with its medieval frescoed interiors or enjoy the long pebbled beach from where you can take a dip in the lake. Chiesa di S Ambrogio e Bernardo located in the centre of Limonta have their origins in the middle ages, and have been remodeled and rebuilt throughout their lifetimes and crossing the road you wind down towards the small but charming harbour of Limonta. Not forgetting Vassena that offers you some great restaurants and bars, for a plate of lake fish and some local company.
