Cernobbio

Comments

Because of its favourable geographical position, Cernobbio was chosen as an ideal location to build palaces and elegant villas such as Villa Pizzo and the famous Villa d’Este, one of the most elegant and famous hotels in the world. From the town there are several paths leading to the mountains and hills sourranding Cernobbio, form which you will have an astonishing glimpse of Lake Como, of the plain and of the Alps.

An elegant, world famous holiday destination that lies on the Western shore of Lake Como, on the slopes of Mount Bisbino, along the ancient via Regina.  Other interesting villas are Villa Erba and Villa Bernasconi. Along the picturesque lakeside square, with its Art Nouveau dock there is a succession of cafés and restaurants. Here every Wednesday morning a lively market is held.

The name Cernobbio seems to originate from the presence of a monastery, "Coenobium", which rose where Villa Gastel stands today. The economy of the town was basically based on silk and wool manufacturing, paper production and tourism (many of the 1800 luxury villas were built by nobles and wealthy families who were coming here to spend their holidays and enjoy the beauty of the lake).
