London lifestyle & travels with kids and babies
Our Lake Como with toddler weekend started with cocktails, canapés and chill out live by sunset & swimming pool in Cernobbio. A gathering of friends, joyous and special – perfect for wedding Lake Como start of celebrations and wonderful Lake Como family holidays!
Our todder, almost 2 years old R had his evening of fun in Argegno with the nanny friend, which spoilt him as usual and tucked him relatively early in bed.
The big day was Saturday and after the Church ceremony and icecream, the crowds headed to Villa d’Erba – a majestic royal house/ little palace by the lake, surrounded by greens, with a dock and beautiful high ceilings. For a toddler the magic quite overwhelming, ducks to be fed and quacked, stairs to go up and down or the lake, boats passing by, manicured pretty bushes to play hide and seek, lights by the lake to be arranged and rearranged. Various grownups saying hello, far too many for a 20 months old. A delightful early evening, with picnic dinner with mum and dad by the lake. Grown-ups continued partying BIG, young ones headed again with nanny friend again relatively early to bed.
But the magic at Villa d’Erba and this fairytale wedding Lake Como continued until the wee hours, magnificent fireworks to tell the stars about our fairytales, bubbles and drinks, delicious food, one great live band.
Amazingly enough, more celebrations have been pencilled in on Sunday and even more amazingly our friends and their guests woke up after a marathon of partying in quite a decent shape. The lake and boats were awaiting 11:30 for all of us on a glittery lake, Cernobbio deck. Grownups and kids embarked on boat rides and for the next hours there will be palatial houses, charming villages and sparkling lake enchanting our eyes – this is a must do for any Lake Como family holidays!
30 degrees in the middle of the lake feels out of this world, the breeze is divine and the water drops superb, especially when surrounded by friends on such joyous occasion. R’s first boat ride ticked all the magic boxes, I am afraid that standards have been raised very high! After an hour and half of visual delights, we disembarked for another feast: Lido Bellagio brunch with more drinks, cool vibes, chill out party music and for some of us splashing in the crystal lake. The kids took joy in bubbles and fruity cocktails, the yummy food and thereafter the elevators, kitchen, sand and various Lido’s facilities. This is what a great Sunday brunch looks like, friends, music, sun and swimming ! Lido Bellagio woul be easily a full enchanted day out and another must do on Lake Como family holidays! Another boat ride back to Cernobbio resumed the magic weekend of celebrations.
Lake Como with toddler proved amazing ! Their wedding Como Lake, Bellagio and Cernobbio weekend was organised to perfection, grand and joyous celebrations with friends and family. To many happy years to our friends and many celebrations !
