So, that George Clooney guy? Turns out he lives a block away from here. That's right, this upscale boutique hotel in tiny Laglio, aka Clooneyville, puts you within gawking distance of George's Lake Como party villa. Movie star neighbors or not, the lakefront Relais Villa Vittoria is the kind of chic and intimate hideaway that discerning travelers—who may shun the obvious flash of, say, Villa d'Este—adore. This isn't a modern property, which would look funny along Lake Como's fairytale banks. Nor is it a frilly relic. Instead, what you'll find here is a bit of classic, a bit of contemporary, plus discreet, professional service and a vibe that makes you feel stylish by association. The twelve rooms and suites are spacious and bright, with an airy palette of white, beige, and taupe that lends a wonderful, floaty romance to the accommodations. Add to that a ridiculously lovely lakeside setting, with a small infinity pool set into a grassy terrace at water's edge and a lakeview restaurant and wine bar, and it's enough to warrant the splurge.
