General Description

The fantastic location of the property, guarantees not only the perfect base for those who wish to get out and about and explore the area beyond Lake Como i.e. Como, Lecco, Bergamo, Milano, Lugano which are all within a convenient easy 60 minutes drive from the property. While, for those who prefer ‘messing about on the water’ the only problem is deciding whether to take the public boat to visit the many towns and villages which surround the lake or enjoy the lake with your own private boat and English Speaking manager. Near the villa just few minutes walk you have one of the best typical trattoria’s of the area but the best news is that we have a very good chef service ready to come into the property and prepare a special meal for you and if you want to pick up some Italian cooking techniques and secrets this is the perfect opportunity for that too.

The Accommodations in the villa, which dates back to the end of the 19th century are located on two floors.

The Ground Floor, to which you can drive up to the main doorway, boasts the most elegant entrance with the marble fireplace, frescoed ceilings, chandeliers and wonderfully spacious living/dining area giving you a taste of what’s in store. The lakeside terrace is easily accessed from many parts of this room. Also on this floor we have the one of the two only modern touches to the property, the kitchen which is so well equipped that even the most discerning gourmet chef will not be disappointed. The other modern touch being the Television offering a range of satellite channels. Three half bathrooms (toilet and sink only) and the well equipped laundry room which boasts both washing and drying machine not to mention ironing facilities are also to be found on this floor. For those who prefer Eating Al Fresco – the BBQ just a stone’s throw from the kitchen will for sure, be a favourite place for you.

The First Floor is easily reached by the elevator or the stairway – you choose. Here you will find seven bedrooms, each with its own bathroom. You can choose you room depending on whether you prefer one of the three twin bedded or one of the four queen bedded rooms, and of course you have a choice too with the bathrooms: Bathtub or shower.
