Villa Orlando is a special mansion built at the end of the 19th century 
The villa on three floors enjoys a super panoramic view and position on Lake Como thanks to the panoramic position on the south of Bellagio. 
The villa is a lakefront property on the west and south side of Bellagio with view to Temezzina, Bellagio and all the snowy peaks of the alps. 
The lake view from this area of the lake is very beautiful, natural and un expected. 
The villa is surrounded by a unique botanical garden with rare and centenary trees.

Another relevant fact is that the property is only 10 minutes walking from the center of Bellagio where is possible to fin many shops and restaurants. The walk is a very nice walk on secondary roads and in the middle of other historical villas. At a short distance from the villa is also posseble to have a delicious lunch or dinner at Darsene di Loppia which is for sure one of the best restaurants on lake Como.

Marquis Eugenio Besana decided in 1891 to build here this innovative Villa because of the botanic beauty and full quietness of this spot in particular which is in Bellagio but just Bellagio. 
Few villas on the lake have the possibility to have a long walk by the lake and far from the busy roads in particular in summer.

Cav. Ing. Luigi Orlando purchased the house in 1920 and since the Villa, thanks to his passions , has been enriched with an impressive and unique botanical garden but also collecting in most of the rooms special objects from all over the world, especially well ordered in one area of the second floor ( the museum ).

This mansion accommodate up to 20 guests, in 7 double bedrooms, 1 quadruple bedroom and 2 single bedrooms. It is directly accessible by car, or by boat thanks to the simple lake access.
Being positioned in the middle of the lake is the perfect point to visit with a venetian taxiboat the south of the lake as well as the north.
Recently has been added a new swimming pool which lies just in front of the lake and reflecting the mountain shapes. 
The villa has two private boathouses on the waterfront side, making it easy for water sports.
In a separate building, can be easily accommodate six person for the staff .

Villa Orlando next to Villa Melzi d’Eril and opposite Villa Carlotta and Villa Balbianello is just ten minutes walk from the marvellous shopping centre of Bellagio ( named also The Pearl of the Lake), 30 minutes by car from Menaggio Golf Club and 50 minutes from Villa D’Este Golf Club in Montorfano.
