Among the most spectacular Italian villas, Villa Passalacqua was created in its present form by the architect Felice Soave. The property spans over seven acres of beautiful gardens constructed with terraces sloping down to Lake Como, connected by stone staircases adorned with statues, large pots and flower beds with pools, fountains and waterworks.
The park, with a particularly rich vegetation, opens up on balconies where the view stretches across the surface of the lake that stands before it.
Villa Passalacqua, from the late eighteenth century, was built over the ruins of an ancient monastery at the behest of the Odescalchi family. In 1787 the luxury villa was put up for sale and purchased by Count Andrea Passalacqua who created a home with lavish furnishings and a large garden.
On the death of Andrea, the villa became the residence of Giambattista Passalacqua.
This luxurious Italian villa has eight suites, all unique and beautiful, with high, sculpted ceilings, antique flooring and spectacular bathrooms.
The rooms are furnished with antiques, Persian rugs and Venetian chandeliers. Villa
The gardens are considered among the most historic and beautiful on Lake Como.
The terrace is full of lemon and olive trees, and also has 11 fountains and a beautiful two hundred year-old greenhouse.
The Sant 'Agata bell tower overlooks the swimming pool.
The building terminates on the shore of the lake with a beautiful dock in antique Moltrasio stone, surrounded by roses, jasmine and oleander.
The villa, located in the heart of the town of Moltrasio, is situated near the major neighbouring cities: just 10 minutes from Como, less than an hour from downtown Milan and 20 minutes from the city of Lugano, in Switzerland.
