In recent years the Lake Como area has gained fame and prestige in the luxury shopping market thanks to many visitors coming from Russia. Why? The love for beauty and uniqueness of our lake and our villas definitely attracted those who now, also in our hotel, have become first customers and then friends. The reviews prove the affection of our Russian customers: we have much pleasure to receive them and they are collected on our guest book.
Historic villas and old houses: Russians love beauty and on our lake they feel like at home
Following the example of the now affectionate George Clooney and the recovery of the Russian economy, it was not very difficult to choose a strategic place like Lake Como that is near Milan, close to Switzerland and easy to get away from the chaos, with an innate sense of privacy. VIP and celebrities on Lake Como are topics that always fascinate tourists and that why some very important persons or sports tycoons bought villas on our lake.
The last one arrived, in order of time, it is Dmitry Gerasimenko, that bought the Cantu basketball team. It seems that one of first one was Vladimir Soloviev, he is not well known in Italy but he is one of the Russian most famous TV hosts. Do not forget Arkay Novikov, owner of a chain of famous restaurants, Navikov restaurants, which bought Villa Fontanella, (former home of the beloved Gianni Versace) or the much more famous Andrei Shevchenko, Ukrainian footballer who has been interested in some areas as Blevio.
We know that Mikhail Kusnirovich, “Bosco dei ciliegi” and department stores Gum Moscow’s owner, bought Saibene Villa in Ossuccio, and that Igor Kogan, world famous banker, became owner of Villa La Punta in Laglio which is the twin to Clooney’s one. Finally we can not forget that Kamilla Dzhanashiya, a rich heiress, that is the owner of the magnificent Villa Balbianello (I have already talked about it here).
Luxury shopping: from Russia with love for the made in Italy
Russian friends like to shop in Italy, they love the Made in Italy Style, the Italian craftsmanship, the beauty and the quality of the product, and now they are trying to import some brand or luxury chains directly coming from Russia .
