Lounging in Lake Como!

How stunning and magical is this place?! This was one of the most spectacular places I have seen thus far. Celebs such as George Clooney have homes in this town and its no wonder that they do. It is so peaceful and beautiful here.

We arrived early in the morning just as the fog was lifting off the lake. The town had many hills and charming homes as well as a magnificent mansion where the Star Wars movies were filmed and James Bond Casino Royale. 

The mansion was so spectacular it was 3 different homes that were attached with secret passageways that were even attached to a chapel. The previous owner was an explorer and designed the home to have the best views of the lake from all directions. This mansion can even be rented out for weddings! Definitely keeping that in mind.

After exploring the town and taking a boat ride on the lake we enjoyed a lovely little lunch right on the water! Enjoying some caprice salad and mushroom risotto and ponoit noir.
