This magnificent lakefront home lies in the province of Como and offers stunning sea views from the terrace and balconies. Swim in the private pool and sunbathe poolside to catch some sun during the day. Boredom will be a thing of the past, with table tennis in the games room and plenty of games for children to stay occupied. The kitchen is fully-equipped and good enough for any chef, budding or professional, to cook up a feast no matter the time of day. Dig into a family meal alfresco or candlelit dinner under the stars as you look out at the lake. Head out onto Lake Como from the private boat dock, or drive up to one of the nearby towns and villages. Dongo is great to visit if you're looking for authentic food, history and scenery. You're sure to get some fantastic photos during your stay, and there are a number of gorgeous hiking and walking trails to discover. In the evening, enjoy a drink up on the balcony as the sun sets or go for a swim under the stars.
