Villa Porro Pirelli

When I was a little girl, there was an advertisement in Town & Country magazine of a Maserati Granturismo pulling into the long, pebbled, Cypress-lined driveway of a rambling villa tucked away in the Italian hills...ever since then, I've always dreamed of hiding away in a villa just like that one, and just a short while ago, I got to do just that!

Villa Porro Pirelli is an 18th century Italian villa nestled into the hills outside of Varese that's been converted to a little luxury hotel.

Bello Bellagio

Bellagio is a tiny town that cascades from higher mountainous areas directly down to the edge of Lago di Como. It is known as the Pearl of Lake Como, for reasons that are has been renowned for its incredibly beauty since Roman times! It's the perfect day trip if you're staying in one of the famed hotels in the larger nearby town of Como, and it is easily accessible by the ferry network connecting towns on the lake or by rented motor boat!
