Lierna, Lake Como, Lombardy
The dazzling views of Lake Como, the jutting promontory of Bellagio, and the not-so-distant Alps are memorable. When this visual bounty is seen at sunset, as you will from Zaffiro, the effect is magical and transfixing. Located in a neighborhood of equally impressive lakeside villas, Zaffiro sits within a gated garden (2000 meter) of cypress, cedar, oak, wisteria and jasmine. The villa rests on the outskirts of the refreshingly non-touristy town of Lierna, on Como's eastern shore.

Zaffiro offers a generously open living, dining and kitchen area that expands onto two full furnished terraces, one facing the lake and the other the garden, just beyond the garden lies the town's rocky beach (direct access from the Villa). Parking is free at the property. Zaffiro is located within walking distance of a city or town.

We had a great stay in Villa Zaffiro. We were 8 adults and 3 small kids and the house was a perfect size for us. The rooms are big with plenty of space for suitcases, baby cribs, etc. We loved the big garden (great for the kids to play) and the terraces with an amazing view of the lake. And...

Six family members - five adults and a five year old - spent a week at Villa Zaffiro July 2014. The house is well-equipped for an extended family - the only limitation is that three of the four bedrooms have en suite bathrooms so the 4th bedroom only has access to a bath through someone's bedroom. We enjoyed opening the...

within 20 mins you can be in the heart of Lecco and just 10 mins drive from Lierna you can enter the superstrada (dual carriageway) for easy access to many other towns and the Rhaetian Alps, S1.Moritz etc.,
