Como luxury period lakeside villa with pool - Built at the turn of the last century as a holiday home for the Italian aristocracy, this stunning property offers a modernised and exclusive accommodation on the shores of Lake Como, with private access to the lake for bathing or boat-mooring, all within a few miles of attractive Bellagio.

The large and spacious accommodation is comfortably spread over four floors, with the interiors elegantly decorated with a blend of classic and modern Italian furniture. Most rooms and several terraces afford spectacular views over the Grigna mountain range and the Lecco branch of Lake Como, contributing to the villa's unique, magical atmosphere. The well-maintained garden has century-old trees providing pleasant shade during the hot summer days. Guests can enjoy a relaxing swim in the large pool or in the lake, easily accessed from the garden.

This location is the perfect starting point to explore the lake and its 'hidden' coves and villages by water taxi or hired boat. You can then reach many picturesque lakeside villages and towns such as Bellagio, Menaggio, Varenna or Bellano and browse among the market stalls for typical Italian hand-made goods and gastronomic delicacies. Watch out for some Hollywood celebrities whilst there, as this area has become increasingly frequented by them. Hiking along scenic mountain trails is a perfect way to really appreciate the breath-taking beauty of the lake and enjoy the spectacular view of the ragged mountain tops reflected in the water below. Alternatively, many water sports are available in Bellagio and the nearby towns, where you can also try the facilities of its exclusive Sporting Club.

Insider Tips

If you are looking for somewhere to take the extended family or a large group of friends this would be the perfect place. You can understand why in the olden days the sophisticated well-to-do Italian families built their holiday houses around the lake and why the rich and famous of today are buying them. It is a truly magical place in all seasons.
