Your home by the lake
Lezzeno is the nearest village to Bellagio, on the western shore of the Como-side of Lake Como. It has fantastic lake views, overlooking Villa Balbianello and Isola Comacina.
Living like a local
Lezzeno is famous for a gastronomic specialty: Missoltini, fresh water fish (shad) – sun dried and grilled.
Along the shores of Lake Como far from the hustle and bustle of Milan and just minutes from beloved Bellagio, lies the picturesque fishing village of Lezzeno. And nestled among its colorful buildings, just behind the leafy square by the harbor, sits Il Palazzo del Vice Re, a lovingly restored aristocratic palace that has been transformed into a unique boutique property.
Italians are most appreciative of visitors who make an effort to speak at least a few words in their language. Keep in mind that Italian words are generally pronounced as written, with each vowel and consonant sounded.
