Often regarded as the best example of rationalist architecture in the area, Villa Lidè was built by the popular Italian TV & movie actress Lida Ferro between 1939 & 1941. In her old age, the actress used to stay at Villa Lidè, especially during the summer break.
This luxurious Waterfront Lake Como villa, currently available for sale, went through a partial renovation in 2007 and a complete makeover in 2011.
Villa Lidè is located in Laglio, a small town of some 900 inhabitants on the western shore of Lake Como’s south-western branch; the town where Hollywood actor George Clooney’s villa is located. Laglio is just 5 km from the world-famous Grand Hotel Villa D’Este and only 7 km from the Swiss border.
This waterfront property is spanned over an area of 1400 square meters, enjoys good sun exposure, and has a lush-green garden at the lake end. From the garden, you can enjoy a spellbinding view of the equally lush-green mountains of Careno village, across the lake.
