Every morning and late afternoon, we shared food, drinks and conversation on the front veranda of Villa Lilo. The gardens feature so many ornamental shrubs and trees that are changing colors during this fall season. I could see a big difference in their foliage in just a week. From the veranda, we can see Bellagio across the lake. All of the towns that dot the lake have their own specific charm. We travelled to Bellagio everyday to change ferries to go to the other towns. How exciting to be here!


In October, on our annual Italy trip, we revisited beautiful Lake Como. With our traveling group of friends, we rented a villa on the lake in the town of Cadenabbia, very close to Tremezzo. Looking at the cars at the bottom of the photograph, you can see how BIG our house, Villa Lilo, actually is. The Villa has amazing gardens that seemed to wind and turn in every direction. How wonderful to wake up every morning and see this beautiful lake and snow capped mountains in the distance.
