This cozy cottage is located just one kilometer from the western shore of Lake
Como and the village of San Siro — a unique, peaceful lakeside town with cobbled
streets leading to a beautiful, ancient castle. San Siro has shops, services,
and restaurants, and is just four miles north of Menaggio, with more extensive
and elegant shopping. Rent a little boat in Santa Maria, or use the facilities
(swimming pool and tennis court) at the lakeside sports complex in Menaggio, where
you can also catch a boat or hydrofoil to take you up and down the lake between
Switzerland and Como, or across to Varenna or Bellagio. There are several
golf courses in the area.
Villa La Dolce is not on the lakeshore but is
located above the lake and the village. Because of its position, the cottage enjoys
magical views of the lake and the mountains beyond. A very large, fenced-in garden
surrounds the house, providing complete privacy.
La Dolce is tastefully furnished in warm, lively colors. The floors of the main
living space are covered with cotto tiles, while the bedrooms have wooden floors.
Colorful prints and soft furnishings create a cheerful feeling throughout the
