Graceful Cernobbio, with its pristine views of Lake Como is now probably best known for George Clooney. He has a villa in Laglio, which is just 10kms up the road, and apparently he loves to come down to the water’s edge cafes at Cernobbio. This is where those lakeside scenes from Oceans 12 were shot. It used to be quite separate from lake capital, Como, but it’s slowly being caught in the tendrils of Como’s residential suburbs. Which makes it quite convenient for visitors. The best places to stay in Cernobbio are the beautiful villas which line the waterfront - the ones with the balconies hanging right out of the lake. And several of our Guru’s recommendations for the best places to stay in Cernobbio offer this luxury, as well as numerous others. It’s that kind of a town.
