Laglio on Lake Como

Let's face it: the village of Laglio has become famous throughout Italy not so much because its name contains a reference to one of the most appreciated aromatic herbs in our gastronomic tradition, but rather because it has become for many years the favorite holiday residence of the Hollywood actor George Clooney , who bought the elegant Villa Oleandra .

The villa stands on an ancient Roman settlement and, together with three other adjacent buildings, constitutes a single large property connected via elegant scaffolding.

Laglio what to do and see

But Laglio is also a perfect starting point for fresh walks along the lake shore and on the surrounding hills from which you can enjoy an excellent panorama.

Its slopes are rich in vineyards, olive groves and above all laurel plants, from which laurel oil, with its surprising medicinal properties, was once extracted.

We recommend the excursion to Monte Torriggia , where in the hamlet of the same name (about 600 m) there is the so-called Buco dell'Orso , a karst cave hundreds of meters deep and with three underground lakes.

Finally, of a completely different kind, but equally interesting, is Frank's Pyramid , a bizarre funerary monument about twenty meters high erected in the 19th century by the Austrian doctor Joseph Frank.
