Casa Ghita is a lake shore property offering 4 bedrooms in an enviable setting benefitting from direct access to Lake Como, from the garden of the villa, with restaurants and shops at walking distance making this an exceptional family residence.

Entertainment opportunities are provided in the form of games room with huge windows overlooking the stunning scenery, table tennis, and the small fitness room has a sauna, ideal to unwind. 

The spacious, elongated terrace opens directly on to the lake allowing sunbathing in privacy and boating options directly from the property. With al fresco dining spaces facing the glorious lake views, guests at Casa Ghita are ensured of a memorable Italian villa experience.

Located on the shore between Cernobbio and Laglio, Casa Ghita is an historical residence with lake access, private mooring and easy access to the nearby village. Moltrasio, the picturesque village walking distance from the villa, was home to the composer Vincenzo Bellini and in more recent years to Gianni Versace and Matthew Bellamy, leader of the rock band Muse. Casa Ghita's proximity to public transportation - being just 200 meters from the bus stop and 500 meters from the ferry one - makes this property an ideal starting point from which to explore Lake Como and its many enticing villages. A rental boat can be organized on request and can pick you up directly at the villa. The elegant and comfortable interiors feature large and bright rooms with original marble mosaic floors, high ceilings and Murano glass chandeliers.

Currency Information

The Euro (€) is the official currency of Italy. Coins are available in 1 cent, 2 cent, 5 cent, 10 cent, 20 cent, 50, cent , €1 & €2 denominations. Notes are available in €5, €10, €20, €50, €100, €200, €500 denominations.

Money Matters

Travellers cheques are widely accepted for exchange or purchase in major cities, but in more rural areas, visit a bank to exchange them for Euros. Major credit cards are widely accepted here (though a limited number of merchants have American Express accounts) and ATM access is widespread. Exchange currency only at authorized outlets such as banks and hotels, and exchange only what you think you will spend in-country. Coins cannot be reconverted on departure. Save all receipts from any currency exchange transaction. You may be asked to produce them when you exit the country, and they are required if you intend to reconvert local currency.


You are not expected to tip on top of restaurant service charges, though leaving a small amount is common practice. If there is no service charge, you might consider leaving 10%/15%, but it is not obligatory. In bars any small change is left as a tip. Tipping taxi drivers is also not mandatory but suggested.

Arrival & Departure Formalities

Travel documents are your responsibility. In general you should have:

  • A signed, valid passport that will remain valid for at least 6 months beyond the completion of your trip. Your passport must have enough blank pages (excluding amendment pages) available for entry and exit stamps issued when entering and exiting immigration points.
  • Visas are required for certain nationalities and you are strongly advised to check your status allowing plenty of time for visa application.

Weather IN Lake COMO

In general, the climate in Lake Como is very mild. The summers are hotter on the coast and in the valleys than in the hills. It rarely rains in the summer months. The average temperature varies between 27°C and 33°C and can even reach 40°C. Spring and autumn are rainy and milder; however, there are still plenty of dry and sunny days. By May there is less rain and the days become longer with up to 10 hours of daylight. The average temperature in spring is between 19°C and 24°C, in autumn between 21°C and 24°C. The winter months alternate between rain and sun with an average temperature of around 10°C. 


It is advisable to contact your doctor before you travel if you have any specific health concerns and take out appropriate travel and medical insurance.


Electrical service in Italy is supplied at 220-240 volts/50 hertz – a converter/adaptor may be required.


There are some important rules of the road -

  • At crossroads drivers coming from the right have priority excluding crossroads with traffic signs/lights.
  • Always carry your driver’s license accompanied by the International Driving Permit, the car insurance papers and ownership (rental) papers.
  • The minimum driving age is 18.
  • Traffic drives on the right.
  • Seat belts must be worn - children under 12 must travel in the back seats, unless the front seat is fitted with a child restraint system.
  • Headlights must be on all the time except if driving in a city during the day with good visibility.
  • In the event of a breakdown a red warning triangle must be displayed in the road.
  • National speed limit is 50kmh (31mph) in towns, 90kmh (56mph) on secondary non-urban highways, 110kmh (68mph) on dual carriageways, 130kmh (80mph) on motorways.
  • Speeding fines: Euros 30 – 300.                                            
  • For use of the highways it is invariably necessary to collect a ticket at toll booth marked “biglietti” before entering the highway. DO NOT pass under the lanes marked Telepass. Pay the toll at the exit. Payment can be made by coins or by credit card.
  • There are strict laws concerning drinking and driving. Blood alcohol levels must not exceed 0.05%. There are random breathalyzer tests carried out regularly by the police.

Parking in LAKE COMO

  • In many large towns, the historical town centre is subject to traffic restrictions (authorised vehicles only may enter) indicated by large white sign with a red circle saying “Zona a traffico limitato”.
  • Street parking is organized and designated with signs and by the colour of the lines for the parking spots. The colour of the lines on the parking space indicates the type of parking; white is for free parking, blue is for paid parking, yellow is reserved for special use. Signs will tell you if you are required to pay or to use a parking disc to time your parking (more details below). In most regions, blue lines mark paid street parking. There will be a payment machine nearby. Place the receipt from the machine on the dashboard. In many towns, white lines mark free parking spots on the street but they may be limited by time. The closest parking sign will tell you if you must set your parking disc to show when you arrived. Set your parking disc to the time you parked and display it in the window. You must return within the maximum allowed time.

The villa

Our villas are normally rented on a villa-only weekly basis and are ideal for those seeking independence and privacy. We’re on call in case you need us and we provide a change of towels and bed linen during the week, but otherwise there no inclusions. 

A&K Concierge upgrade

For additional support, comfort and a slice of pampering why not upgrade to our A&K Concierge service. Included is an airport welcome on arrival with assistance for onward transportation; the services of an A&K Concierge – whose local knowledge provides you with invaluable assistance and recommendations; an orientation of the local area; a fully stocked drinks fridge; maid service; the ingredients for your first evening’s supper and breakfast delivered on the first morning of your stay. For full details of concierge inclusions speak to an A&K Travel Consultant on 0845 618 2205.

The finishing touches

Ever dreamt of driving through the Chianti hills in a red Ferrari, or along the Moyenne Corniche to Monaco in a Bentley? How about sailing along the Cote d'Azur to St Tropez in a private yacht or speed boat? Sometimes the home is all that you need, but if you're lured into culture, excitement, activity, improving your cooking or simply dabbling in landscapes, then speak to one of our Villa Specialists for an insight into what we can arrange. These are what we call our ‘Finishing Touches’.

The list is by no means exhaustive and we always welcome requests, however obscure you may think they are! Our local offices enable us to control the quality of the services on offer and the depth of knowledge our local teams have is impressive. Our aim is to provide guests with the authentic sights, flavours and experiences of the region they are staying in.

If you would prefer to discuss your specific requirements, whether it’s in relation to the property or about your stay in general, please do contact us using the Enquire page or please do give us a call for a chat.
