Villa Laura is a lakefront property located ten kilometers north of Menaggio on the northwest shore of Lake Como, close to historic sites and sporting activities such as golfing, sailing and horseback riding. Visit the Museum of "La Raccolta della Barca Lariana" which features over 600 boats that played an important part in the nautical history of the lake from the 19th century to today. Among them, is a Venetian gondola from the last century which was built on Lake Como and a Cisco, which is a typical English sailing boat also from the last century. Spend another day shopping at the Armani, Ferragamo, Versace and Gucci factory outlets. And you can always go sailing! Como and in particular the northern part of the lake is renowned in all of Europe as an excellent sailing area, providing enjoyment for sailing, windsurfing or kite surfing. The area offers numerous alpine destinations and several trekking and mountain bike trails.
A pedestrian path runs along the shore between the lake and the property. Less than one kilometer from the villa is a village with shops and restaurants.



Villa Laura with its spacious and brightly decorated interior is the ideal vacation home for large families or a group of friends.

There is a living room with three comfortable sofas and large French doors opening to the spacious panoramic terrace (350 square meters!). This floor also features a fully equipped kitchen and a large dining room with a table for twelve guests.

There are five double bedrooms, each with a bathroom. Two of the bedrooms have an adjoining single bedroom, perfect for children. One double bedroom has direct access to a balcony overlooking the lake.

The property is on the shore of the lake, only a few meters from the beach. A large, spacious terrace surrounds the front of the house that faces the lake and wraps around a side of the house. Here you have tables and chairs for dining al fresco with views across the manicured lawns to the lake. The swimming pool was added in 2010 and is located on the side of the house with chaise lounges to accommodate all guests. It is heated and, during the winter months, is enclosed in glass. From the pool you can stroll to the lake where there is a small dock area and a public beach. There is a public walking path between the property's lawn and the beach.

Behind the house is the entrance from the street, with a parking area that can accommodate six cars. Across the street from the parking area is a lightly visited boat museum, featuring boats that were used on the lake since the early 19th century. Most of the museum is hidden behind ivy covered walls.
