Wonderful lake views & historical gardens
Bella Dépendance is an independant house and sits atop Lake Como. The house was designed to take advantage of one of the most wonderful views in the world. Made of Moltrasio stone and wood, the house is laid out on two floors. The gardens of Bella Dépandance are set on two levels, and leaning over the garden balustrade you will enjoy amazing views of the lake. The name reveals that it is "only" the dependance/guesthouse of a much larger villa (not offered here) which is located on another spot of the large property. Although the main villa and the guesthouse are located on the same grounds, they are fully detached.
The guests of Bella Dépendance are welcome to enjoy the extensive and wonderfully designed Italian gardens of the property. The gardens are considered some of the most historic and beautiful on Lake Como. The large swimming pool, shared with the owner who lives in the main villa, has unobstructed views of Lake Como. A 12th-century belltower overlooks the pool, and the spectacular pool terrace is filled with lemon and olive trees. There is also beautiful 200 year-old greenhouse on the terrace, as well as a fountain (one of 11 on the property) that can be illuminated at night.
For those who prefer swimming in the lake, the property has its own swimming dock, encased in antique stone and filled with roses, jasmine, and oleander. Two boats are available for rent (a 32' mahoghany hand-crafted boat ideal for long lake cruises, and a 19' boat for water skiing, fishing, and village hopping). Bicycles and tennis rackets are also available.
This historical property was once the residence of a famous Italian composer. The location (3 km north of Cernobbio, between the famous Villa d'Este hotel and the villa owned by actor George Clooney) is within walking distance of a variety of shops and restaurants, therefore it could be suitable if you travel without a car. The closest train station is in Como, just 10 minutes away; you can be in Milan or cross the border to Lugano, Switzerland, in just 30 minutes.
