This picture brings back fun and fond memories full of travel stories.
The setting was tranquil, exotic and simply beautiful at a lakeside pool of a luxury hotel in the charming town of Bellagio on Lake Como, Italy.
You may ask “How did I discover this oasis” or “What led me here”? Movies did play a big part in my curiousity of this stunning Italian alpine lake. I love spy and action movies, and romance movies too, especially ones with great scenery.
After watching the James Bond movie Casino Royale, I researched to find the filming locations and discovered that two beautiful villas on Lake Como were featured in that movie.
Villa Balbianello has been the location of many Famous Films and Travel stories
A friend told me that “A Month by the Lake” featuring Vanessa Redgrave, Uma Thurman and Edward Fox was also filmed on Lake Como and a lot of it was shot at Villa Balbianello, only a kilometre away from my hotel in Lenno. Star Wars Episode II: Attack of the Clones was also filmed here at Villa Balbianello.
I am sure you have exciting travel stories to tell and I would love to hear them.
I will be setting up an option for you to share your stories – which is not yet ready.
My readers will be thrilled too!
Villa Gaeta is where James Bond shoots Mr. White in the movie Casino Royale. Villa Gaeta is not easy to get to – But I did it!
