It is located in the picturesque village of Pognana Lario, on the Bellagio side of Lake Como between Como Centro and Bellagio. Most of the architecture and historic features of Villa Gabriella have been beautifully preserved and maintained with the original charm and character of the old historic Villa. Named for, a much loved, very special little girl, by the name of 'Gabriella’, the romantic villa and hideaway retreat, is nestled above Lake Como, below the ancient village of Pognana Lario in a private, tranquil, peaceful setting with direct views of Lake Como that are seemingly endless and forever changing. From the villa balconies, one can see all the way to Como to the South and up to Argegno to the North. Truly an amazing place to spend your vacation!

The master bedroom is warm and cozy with lovely tasteful furnishings and private balcony, for alfresco dining, with unobstructed views of magical Lake Como.

Eric or Robin - Lake Como Beach Resort and Villas purchased this villa in 2006

Why Eric or Robin - Lake Como Beach Resort and Villas chose Como

Named for our beautiful grand daughter Gabriella back home. Naming the Villa after her, keeps her in memory each time we hear her name. The Villa was built in the 1700's and had been in the original family until it was sold to us in 2006. We love this villa. We also enjoy the villa in the winter where we can relax and enjoy the gorgeous lake views. It is located in a very peaceful part of the lake only 10 minutes from Como and 15 from Bellagio. It is close enough to everything yet very private. Perfect for a

Honeymoon or Anniversary or a friend get together.

Guestbook comments from the manager

A view to die for!”





5 of 5 stars

Reviewed May 5, 2014







My husband and I stayed at Villa Gabriella for 5 days in April.The views from this

apartment overlooking Lake Como are breathtaking and we shall always have fond memories of sitting on the balcony with our cheese and wine. The apartment is well

equipped and the owner Eric made the stay even more enjoyable by assisting us with local knowledge and even rang the phone company when I had problems recharging my ipad.

The little bar in the village (Peppo's ) makes a great cup of coffee and we always stopped off there in the morning before our trips up and down the lake. As we are a couple of "oldies" we found the narrow roads and fast Italian drivers somewhat challenging however you do tend to get used to it after a few days. A delightful experience.

Views to die for.....

  • 5 out of 5
After leaving my driving licence at home the holiday couldn’t have started any worse however that was soon to change.

We (Anne & I) made are way to Pognana Lario via the local (excellent) public transport system – very much a case of planes, trains and automobiles.

What I’ve failed to mention is that Robin and Eric (the villa owners) virtually held our hands (metaphorically speaking) during the journey from Bergamo to Pognana Lario and this is something we’re extremely grateful for.

Anyway upon arrival at the villa you’re hit with some of the most breathtaking views of Lake Como that we’ve ever seen. The tranquillity of the setting is only interrupted by the tolling of the bells at the local church and the chinking of our wine glasses as we toasted the fact that ‘we had made the right decision’ in choosing Villa Gabriella.

The villa itself is set over three floors and, if you can peel yourself away from gravitating to the balconies and the views (have I mentioned the views.....), it is furnished to a high standard and certainly catered for our needs.

The villa it situated a third of the way up the hill and can be reached either by road with ample car parking directly outside (assuming you have a driving licence that is) or by making your way through the meandering pathways through the village.

At the foot of the hill you’ll find a very friendly restaurant (I think it was called The Meridian) – it was always a good excuse to stop here prior to making our way to the villa.
Further in to the village you’ll find a couple of local bars (Peppo’s was our favourite as they welcomed us like we were members of their family) and a local supermarket that should cater for most of your needs (great selection of meats, cheeses, olives, local wines and breads – what more could you ask for).

Whilst many of the locals can speak English I would recommend that you take a Italian phrase book along as it made our life a lot easier – also the locals love to see you have a go at the Italian language.

So finally as this was the first holiday without our kids (sorry boys) and was a joint celebration of Anne’s 40th (she doesn’t look it) and our wedding anniversary we couldn’t have spent it in any more of a idyllic setting.

Our thanks goes out to Robin and Eric for all their assistance – as hosts you ‘Shine’.

Ciao
Mark & Anne

stunning views of lake como

  • 5 out of 5
We had a lovely week at Lake Como and the Villa had everything we needed plus lovely views across the lake. There is a local shop and restaurant and we enjoyed being able to use the beach resort and swim in the lake. Having access to the lake meant that we could have lazy days by the water in the sun.
Eric and Robin were lovely to us - helping us find parking (we arrived on the night of a fiesta- it's normally no problem) and even getting the first lot of supplies for us from the shop.

We are very pleased that you and your family enjoyed your stay with us in Villa Gabriella.
The gnocchi festival is once a year and you happened to arrive on the day of the festival. Pognana Lario makes the most amazing gnocchi around the lake.
Eric, Jiselle and I want to thank you all for coming and staying with us in Villa Gabriella.
We look forward to your return.
It was a pleasure meeting you all.

Wonderful stay in Villa Gabriella

  • 5 out of 5
we stayed one week in family in villa gabriella (Lake Como beach resort). it was a wonderful stay with a stunning view over the lake. The apartment is well equipped. Eric is a very friendly and helpful host. We could easily park our car in front of the house and use it to visit the region. I recommend it as a base to visit the lake Como area.

The Villa Gabriella is as described, very clean and comfortable with everything you need for a trip to Lake Como. The bedrooms and bathroom are very spacious and there is plenty of hot water. The main room/kitchen is very comfortable, spacious and fully equipped for your visit. We were very happy and relaxed we could happily have stayed longer.

The owners Robin and Eric were very helpful right from our first enquiry right to our checking out. Eric came over to advise us on the area, and point out George Clooney's villa across the lake, which was very helpful ( but no invitation from George LOL). We could have used the lakeside resort that Eric and Robin also own but as the weather was mixed when we were there we didn't get a chance. If it had been sunny all week it would have been great to have a swim.


The only negative is that the villa is up a very steep road and then there are two flight of steps up to the door. The owners did point that out when we made our first enquiry and recommended a car to get around. BUT the views are tremendous, you can see for miles and its well worth the climb. In fact most villas/apartments in the Como are are up steep hills there are very few that are on a flat area, and it is lovely eating your breakfast on one of the two terraces watching the boats on the lake. ( It was also very enjoyable to sit on the terrace with a glass of wine late in the evening and watch a summer storm on the lake) There is a good local shop in the village and the local people are very friendly and helpful. There are plenty of groceries/ supermarkets/ bars/ restaurants within a few miles of the villa and Como itself is a good shopping area.The villa is also in a perfect location for visiting any of the sights/ restaurants etc in the area. Eric will soon explain how to get there and what to see. He will also book restaurants, boats etc for you.

I would recommend this villa and its owners, as the house itself and the location is a super place to visit the Como area.

Comfortable house with a fantastic view

  • 4 out of 5
The house is located on the east side of the lake with a fantastic view just opposite of George Clooney's villa. There is shadow in the morning and sun in the afternoon. It has a good location for various trips at Lake Como and is located near a great local restaurant named La Meridiana. It also has access to Lake Como Beach Resort which has a nice private beach.

Lake Como is one of the most unforgettable, scenic lakes in the entire world. Set in the mountains of Northern Italy, with a near perfect Mediterranean climate, this is paradise. Because of the many activities year round, the location of Villa Gabriella is fantastic; midway between the Centre of Como and Bellagio. Pognana Lario is situated in one of the most scenic locations on the lake. Both town and villa have 180° unobstructed views of the lake to the north and south as well as west. Pognana has a ferry stop and a lakeside walk for just sitting on the shores edge to daydream. With its views, villas, cobblestone streets and over 250 year old church, it is truly majestic. Guests of the villa are also welcome to the Lake Como Beach Resort for waterfront access and swimming. There are many walkways and rustic streets through the old village of Pognana that brings one back to the past. Pognana has shops, a restaurant and cafes nearby for most all of your needs.

Other Activities: Boating, wind sailing as well as all other summer and winter sports available on the lake .
