Surrounded by the mountains, with pittoresk little towns on its shores, Lake Como is one of the most spectacular lakes I have ever seen. No surprise it was a famous retreat for the Roman aristocracy in the past and for Hollywood celebrities at present.
We spent one week on the Eastern shore of the lake, in an old country house owned by a family who bought it in ruins and renovated to perfection. Our hostess, Nadia, has incredible sense of style: she furnished the house with vintage furniture mixing an matching exceptional items and brave colours – the shades of green and red, for instance. Her effortless style transcends everything she does. Nadia serves amazing breakfast – bresaola, mozzarella, fresh bread, panna cotta, figures from the garden and traditional Italian pastries accompanied by macchinetta (moka pot) coffee. She is truly inspiring woman.
We spent couple of days on the beach soaking up as much sun as possible, visited several towns, including the must sees Varenna and Bellagio and had some quality time with our little one ♡
