Vincenzo Bellini estate with historic bell tower
A dock and 11 working fountains set the scene at this 18th-century retreat once home to composer Vincenzo Bellini. Soaring frescoes, a marble fireplace, and a mahogany bar are remnants of aristocratic roots. Play the antique piano in the double-height music room, stroll past citrus trees to a 12th-century bell tower, and dip in the pool while the kids hit the playground. Cadenabbia is a 7-mile drive.
