Villa Iridia is located in Laglio, on Lake Como, in the Italian region of Lombardy. The town has, during the last fifteen years, become worldwide famous because Hollywood actor George Clooney purchased there Villa Oleandra, a luxurious villa which once was owned by the Heinz family, as a hideaway in which to spend substantial parts of the year.
Laglio is located on the western shore of the south-western branch of Lake Como, 9 miles away from the city of Como. It is a very small town, perfect for those looking to spend their holidays in Italy in total privacy, absolute comfort and complete tranquillity.
Laglio features several places of interests, but what makes it especially appreciated is not only its breathtaking panorama on Lake Como, but also the so-called “Bear Hole” cave, located on the slopes of Mount Colmegnone above the hamlet of Torriggia. The cave, that can be visited upon request at the commune offices, was home of the bones of Ursus spelaeus and is made up of various rooms with partly unexplored underground lakes, and is rich in spring water.
