About Lake Como Beach Resort & Villas

Eric and Robin with their lovely daughter Jiselle have owned and managed the Lake Como Beach Resort since 2007. They moved to Italy to raise their daughter in a beautiful, peaceful and stunning setting on Lake Como. Being here is living the Italian dream and we are blessed to offer our guests the opportunity, to share in it.

Lake Como Beach Resort & Villas purchased this villa in 2007

Why Lake Como Beach Resort & Villas chose Pognana Lario

The Lake Como Beach Resort is a private exclusive little resort located directly on the Lake Como waterfront with private beach for swimming, beautiful lush gardens, a private sand lido and boat dock/jetty. There is also private secure parking and balconies that overlook Lake Como off the master bedrooms. There is also outdoor seating with umbrella tables and chairs for al fresco dining in front of the villas.

We had a great family stay on Lake Como at Lcbr. Eric was very helpful and knowledgable and went the 'extra mile' to make sure we were comfortable and settled.

WOW.. what I can I say except Lake Como is heaven! The property owner Eric was extremely helpful and was very Knowledgably, the villa's were cute and well equipped, we were able to enjoy a nice Italian dinner outside the property, the mornings were wonderful overlooking the lake on our balcony enjoying fresh coffee made in the Villa, the Property was very quaint and private. My only suggestion would be that if you arrive during 12:00- 5:00 there is really no place to eat or buy food, markets are closed. we highly suggest eating in the town of Como before you head up to the Villa, also the bus system is wonderful there, I would suggest using the buses if you are looking to move around. We highly recommend this Villa!

Wonderful property with an unrivalled location on the edge of beautiful Lake Como.

  • 4 of 5

We stayed at Lake Como Beach Resort & Villas for 1 week in August with our 2 daughters (9&11) and had a truly fantastic stay. We chose the property due to it's location on the edge of the lake and the fact that it had a jetty which means you can swim directly into the lake. We soon realised that this was indeed it's USP and even the likes of George Clooney and Roman Abramovitch don't have such facilities ! The appartments are adequately furnished (small shower room, very good sized bedrooms, reasonable kitchenette/lounge) but the real beauty of this place is the outside space. The views and the shared garden and the beach area/jetty are fantastic. Other guests were polite and we enjoyed sharing travel stories and local finds but this is all tied together due to the wonderful hosting of Eric and his charming daughter Jiselle. Eric gave us the local low down and recommended everywhere we needed to go - and indeed we did ! Even he was shocked at how many restaurants we managed to fit in ! Must do's are Bella Vista, Il Pomodorino (Como) & Salice Blu (Belaggio), which you will need a car to get to, but we also loved Le Meridiana, which was a (hairy) 5 minute walk away. Vincenzo's local (super)market sold the most delicious bread, pastries, homemade pesto, gnocchi, fruit/veg & pretty much anything you wanted to buy ! He was so sweet and often gave the girls little free treats in the morning. We visited Como & Bellagio and hired a boat on the lake for 3 hours. We also enjoyed many relaxing hours on the beach area and swimming in the lake. We were all genuinely blown away by this location and thoroughly enjoyed every minute with our fabulous hosts who made us feel truly like old friends. Thank you so much. Stu, Ali, Holly & Rose Kerren xx

Lake Como Beach Resort

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Villa Serenita which was lovely, clean and spacious with plenty of room for four people. The resort area of the gardens and beach were very pleasant, combined with the stunning views it was perfect for a relaxing holiday. Eric is a great host, friendly, courteous and knowledgable about the area and willing to go out of his way to accommodate his guests. The public transport and ferry are great ways to get about the Lake with good services. We had a really fabulous time and would love to go back , my only reservation is that it is quite a steep site which may not suit some people, however I would suggest speaking to Eric who I am sure would be more than willing to help.

Perfect holiday

  • 5 of 5

Stayed for a week at Lake Como Beach resort and would highly recommend it. Stunning location. Loved having the lake just there at our door step. Did not need to use our hired car all week. Used the lake ferries and bus. Local shop and good restaurant within walking distance with lots of steep steps involved to walk up from car park. Not a problem for us but might be if you have mobility issues.We were impressed by the hospitality of Eric the owner and his daughter. Would love to visit again.

Mary, Tony and Rhiannon.

Lovely lakeside location with stunning views and fantastic lido

  • 5 of 5

We've just had a great 10 days at lake Como beach resort. The weather was glorious and we enjoyed sunbathing on the lido and swimming in the lake. Lake Como is absolutely stunning. Eric and his family were lovely and Eric in particular was so helpful and friendly. We were later than planned arriving due to flight delays and Eric very kindly went and picked up some pizzas for us from a near by restaurant. We loved the local shop and enjoyed their fresh pasta, ragu and gnocchi as well as Italian meats and cheeses. There weren't many restaurants or bars within walking distance so although you don't need a car to get around I would definitely recommend hiring one. The drive from the airport was easy and we didn't find the Italian drivers too crazy.

Eric organised a speed boat for us for the day and I would thoroughly recommend this as it was a great way of viewing all the lovely lakeside properties. We loved Bellagio, Varenna and Como. Although Pognana Lario is a small village with limited shops and restaurants the lakeside location with lido makes it very special. We would love to return.
