Villa Pognana is a charming villa built in the Country Liberty style of the late 1800's - 1930's with equally charming decoration and furnishings.  Every window of the villa offers remarkable views of Lake Como and  of Lenno across the lake.  The tiny shore village of Pognana is just a short walk down the cobbled path (a true feeling of old Italy) and it offers a post office, grocery shop and cafe.  In the summer, there is also ferry service from Pognana to other villages on the lake.  The schedule is posted at the ferry house.

Built on three levels (180 square meters), Villa Pognana is a cozy romantic house whose interior reflects the atmosphere of an ancient holiday country house. It sends you back to a time when everything was more simple and life's rhythms were more lyrical.  The furnishings are comfortable and simple with some nice antiques. The sitting room and dining room walls are painted in soft apricot.  The floor is antique with red, gray and white hexagonal tiles, which are typical for the area.  On the upper floor, the well polished wooden floors gleam.
The villa is nicely equipped with a satellite television, washing machine, dishwasher, oven and clothes dryer.  For an additional fee, advance grocery shopping and porter service are available.
The ground floor features a sitting room (satellite TV and VCR), a fully equipped and newly renovated kitchen with dishwasher and washing machine and a dining room with fireplace.  There is a mezzanine with a bathroom.
On the first floor there are two double bedrooms with lake view, and upstairs at the second mid floor you have another bathroom.
On the second floor there are two double bedrooms, both with lake view.
Downstairs there is a typical grotto, as the house is built on rocks.
The outdoor areas of the villa are special given the panoramic view and poetic atmosphere.  There is an attractive garden where guests can enjoy outdoor meals under a pergola, a sunny patio, and a vegetable garden.  The garden has a variety of trees that thrive in this mild microclimate such as palms, a fig tree, rose and bay bushes, and of course the perennial rosemary bush so dear to Italy.

Please note: To reach the villa, you will park on the road above and walk down a path of about 200 meters with flights of steps.  The steps are quite steep and of cobbled stone, and are therefore not suitable for guests with walking difficulties.  The keyholder, Vittorio, is a very amiable and muscular man and will help with your luggage.  This is why it is a good idea to call him as soon as you know your arrival time so that he can be ready and waiting to welcome you.

One parking space is available upon request.

The lake is about 100 meters from the villa, down the same path that takes you to the rental.  The closest restaurant is a ten minute walk away. 

The bus stop for Como is directly in front of the bar in Pognana. The journey to Como takes about half an hour.  A visit to the town of Como is a pleasant contrast to the peace and tranquility of the villa.  In Como, elegance surrounds you: straightforward architecture, elegant shops, stylish, wood-paneled cafés and restaurants and of course several beautiful museums await your visit.

Furthermore the town of Como is a worldwide leader in silk production.  Even private customers will have the unique opportunity to buy material, scarves or ties directly from the manufacturers in Como.  Como has a railway station where you can take a quick train ride to Milan.  Villa Pognana is ideally placed for numerous excursions in the beautiful pre-alpine countryside or to Bellagio - also known as the pearl of the lake.
