5 stunning villas on Lake Como where to spend the weekend To enjoy a relaxing and glam holiday with a unique view

The smell of wisteria climbing on the gates, gardens in bloom with hedge mazes, the sound of waves made by boats crashing on the shores, the sun reflecting on the blue waters of the lake, the light breeze moving your hair while you taste ice cream. There is something fascinating, timeless and deeply relaxing which attracts millions of visitors to Lake Como every year. As in a postcard from the past, every glimpse tells of an Italy frozen in time made of good food, elegance, decadence, nature, similar to the one that loved to depict Hollywood in the '50s. 

Celebrities like Miley Cyrus and George Clooney have always enjoyed spending a few days of vacation or even buying a historic villa overlooking the lake. The website to visit for a dream holiday on the shores of Lake Como is The House of Travelers, the platform that offers accommodation, apartments and historic villas for both a weekend and a longer stay.
