Villa Gabriella is a luxurious private romantic hideaway villa, with incredible personal charm. Originally built in 1744, Villa Gabriella has been lovingly cared for, restored and renovated to the highest standard. 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!

Murano glass lighting and stylish welcoming antiques are scattered throughout the villa. The main floor living room has a warm wood burning fireplace, dining area, kitchen and a beautiful private balcony with spectacular Lake Como views. The master bedroom is warm and cozy with lovely tasteful furnishings and private balcony, for alfresco dining, with unobstructed views of magical Lake Como.

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

Well presented villa with great views over the lake

Villa has one double bedroom and a further bedroom up in the roof -clean , well presented with lots books and Dvds . Just about big enough for us ( two adults and two teenagers) for a week . Great views over lake from two balconies -be aware that its around 900+ steps down to the lake front beach club but the exercise offsets all those pizzas !
Eric the host was friendly and helpful -lots to do and see around Como by car and ferries -a great week .

JULY 25th 2013- Villa Gabriella

wonderful

Villa Gabriella is a wellkept, beautiful house in the middle of the village of Pognana Lario. We also had nice contacts with the local people who are very friendly. It is located upon the hillside, so you have to climb up by the steps or take your car. The advantage is of course the stunning view from the balcony, almost a dream !

If you want to have a swim in the lake you can go down to the lido at Lake Como Beach Resort where Eric and Robin will welcome you with a big smile :-) It is very enjoyable down there.

Beautiful villa with gorgeous views.

My husband and I planned for 8 months our trip to Lake Como and Villa Gabriella. We were attending a wedding of the daughter of some very good friends. After researching and reading reviews, I picked Villa Gabriella for its
excellent location on the lake. It is halfway between Como and Bellagio.

Eric greeted us at the door and spent time getting to know us and showing us around the villa as well as explaining transportation around the lake. He
was very nice and helpful and as the week went on, checked on us to make sure we did not need anything. The Villa is very self-sustaining. The full kitchen, living room, bedrooms and bathroom were comfortable and had
everything we needed. It was very clean and neat with quaint furnishings befitting an italian villa. The two balconies had the best views.! We had great
weather so spent a lot of time on them drinking in both the scenery and local wines. The church was amazing and we now miss the bells chiming and the local kids playing soccer there each evening.

We spent several nights at the local bar/restaurant/gelateria called 'Peppos'.
It had very good pasta, wine and beer and gelato. The owner was very friendly and helpful. The local grocery store was convenient and had most
everything we needed for our week stay. The roads through these old, quaint Italian villages which are built on the side of the mountains, are windy and narrow. The locals are quite used to taking the turns quickly, but at times, it was a little nerve wracking for us.

Overall, I highly recommend Villa Gabriella for your stay at Lake Como. Eric and Robin will make sure you have everything you need. The villa is wonderful and relaxing and the views of the lake are exquisite.

We hope we have made friends for life with the arcio's.

Fantastic ! - Feb 2013

  • Review Submitted: 15-Mar-2013

Villa Gabriella is Fantastic!

My wife Brooke and I booked our trip to Italy, and specificaly Villa Gabriella based on the sheer beauty of scenery in the pictures, etc. What we didn't know is how great Eric and Robin are. After a few complications with our GPS and after a long day of driving to the villa, we got a little of course. After calling Eric, he jumped in his car at 9pm on a Saturday night and drove over to help us. He got us into the villa, showed us around, etc.. When he realized how hungry we looked, he called down to a great restuarant and got us in later then they would generally be serving. Erik and Robin provided ideas for day trips, helped with reservations, emailed to check on us throughout the week and were just awesome.

The villa is even more stunning then the pictures on the website, and the area is amazing.

My wife and I highly reccomend the villa and Lake Como in general. It made for a great hub for the many day trips we took: Switzerland, Milan, Verona, Venice, Como, etc..

Thanks Eric and Robin for everything!

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 .
