On the same property there is another accommodation for 4 people, Carina
del Lago. This was formerly the guardian’s house and is
located at the entrance of the estate about 60 meters from the
villa. The cottage does not face the villa garden or pool.

Bellezza del Lago. From here trains go to the Milano Cadorna
