Lake Como Lovers: Location of a movie scene set on Lake Como

Jump to last reply

That movie is "A Month by the Lake" with Vanessa Redgrave.

I thought I'd ask our crack traveling team, someone here is bound to know.

I've visited Lake Como three times. I've seen this movie probably a dozen.

Both in the opening scene, and the ending scene, there is a long lakeside promenade with a view of the mountains. Vanessa's character takes several photos of the mountains in the opening scene, and in the final scene it shows Miss Bentley (Vanessa) and the Colonel slow dancing on the same promenade.

It isn't Como itself, I don't think, because the mountains in the scene look fairly steep and I don't see other "Como waterfront" points of reference. It isn't Villa Balbianello (which is where part of the movie is set). That scene looks less developed than Lake Como in general. Granted you only see the view from the promenade looking off into the Lake and mountains.

I wonder if it's Bellagio, looking north - but you'd see Varenna if that is the case. I don't recall seeing a village in this scene.

To see that scene - a large promenade, overlooking a broad length of lake and mountains in the distance - it seems that you would have to be looking north to get that view, and I can't picture where it is, exactly.

I kind of wonder if that final scene is Lake Garda...

Thanks for any thoughts!
