MonteLago Village Resort is a one of a kind luxury Las Vegas resort and real estate opportunity, located just 17 miles from the Las Vegas Strip. Set among the desert mountains of Nevada on the shores of sparkling Lake Las Vegas, the Mediterranean-themed village offers exquisite shopping and dining, golfing, European-style gaming, and access to the championship golf and lakeside recreation of Lake Las Vegas Resort.” [Excerpt is from the MonteLago Village Resorts Website.]

The MonteLago Village Resort is a mix of a modern American hotel (condo) and an old Tuscan structure. Among several restaurants, there is a good cafe that has indoor seating as well as tables on a patio overlooking the town square: “Cafe Tenuta, Located in Casino MonteLago – Features 24-hour café dining with a diverse, breakfast, lunch and dinner menu including steaks, seafood, salads, sandwiches, and pasta.” [Excerpt is from the MonteLago Village Website.] Condos are available to rent (like hotel rooms.) Hotel rooms are available in nearby hotels, such as: Ritz Carlton Hotels or Loews Hotels.

Casino MonteLago is tucked into the hotel’s “wine cellar,” to loosely paraphrase the website: “Casino MonteLãgo offers you an intimate casino setting where value and service is paramount. Just a few miles East of Lake Mead Drive, at beautiful Lake Las Vegas Resort, Casino MonteLãgo charms you with European style and hospitality and is reminiscent of a cozy 17th Century Tuscan winery” read more…
A PENNY FOR YOUR THOUGHTS Casino MonteLago boasts of over 200 Penny slots, as well as Video Poker and other current, popular video gaming machines; table games and a Sports lounge are active.

“The entire Lake Las Vegas scene is pretty cool allowing that it is just a little bit square.” They do, from time to time, have sidewalk Art shows and music concerts by the marina; the website declares that “The Ice Rink is now open.” It can be quite pleasant to stroll through the village streets, after dinner, or unlax on the grassy-knoll – on a blanket – watching a Jazz concert; they also produce an “Opera Under the Stars.”
