Location and Surrounding Area. The Villa Garrovo was built in 1833 and was completely refurbished in 2015. Located within the park it offers both garden and lake views, just a few steps from the Cardinal Building.
The pretty village of Cernobbio dates back to the 12th century and sits at the foot of Mount Bisbino. It is a five minute walk from Villa Malakoff and offers everything you might need in the way of shops, restaurants and services. There is also a wonderful viewpoint, known locally as the Riva di Cernobbio. The larger town of Como is a ten minute drive and contains numerous churches, works of art, museums, theatres, palaces and public gardens. For the walkers, there is a funicular which runs up to the village of Brunate, 700 metres above Como. It is the starting point for some spectacular walking tracks and has superb views of the Alps. Como is famous for its silk and you can either see the full silk-making processes or just sit in the lively piazzas and watch the world go by. Como also hosts various international speed boat races and becomes a magnet for the rich and famous.
Cernobbio is in an ideal position for exploring the marvels of Lake Como and is about an hour's drive from the romantic gem of Bellagio. Bellagio is known locally as La Perla del Lago (the pearl of the lake) for its outstanding beauty, quality restaurants, local trattorias, chic shopping and of course the famous Italian homemade gelato ice cream.
There is plenty to do on the waters of Lake Como. A whole host of water sports are available and it's easy to spend an entire day sailing, canoeing, windsurfing, water skiing and kite surfing. There are water skiing schools in Lezzano, a hydro-plane school for pilots in the town of Como and three sailing schools in Dervio.
Villa Garrovo is a 40 minute drive from Milan's Malpensa international airport and less than an hour from Linate international airport. The city of Milan is again, about an hour's drive away.
