Set on the water, yet only a five-minute stroll from Como's central piazza, Villa Galante is one of the most unique and historic luxury villas on Lake Como. The villa dates back to the year 1772, and a three-year renovation project, finished in 2009, restored the villa to its original splendor while adding modern conveniences such as swimming pool, air-conditioning, elevator, gym, yoga studio, highspeed internet and more.

Few villas rival Galante's opulence and none offers closer proximity to the center of Como. Whether basking in the luxury of this 12,000 square foot mansion, strolling to the medieval center of Como, or boating from the back yard on one of Europe's most beautiful lakes, Villa Galante is the perfect setting for large families and groups of friends and is especially family-friendly, with a children's suite. Its convenient location in walking distance to the centre of Como, as well as easy access to public transportation, makes Villa Gallante an ideal destination for touring Lake Como without a car. One of the famous "Seven Sisters of Como," La Galante is filled with frescoes (some of which by Andrea Appiani, Italy's most famous neo-classical artist) and is the subject of a novel written in 1856 by French author Nathalie Comtesse.

Staff lives on the property, in a separate residence.

Garden:

The lakeside garden is approximately 70 yards long by 20 yards wide

Swimming pool 15 yds x 5 yds

The back gate opens onto the famous "Passeggiata Villa Olmo" on the water

5 steps descend from the back yard to the boathouse and the lake

The entire garden is surrounded by stone walls and hedges 10 ft high for optimal privacy

RUSTIC APARTMENT (1500 sq ft):

On the same property but with a private entrance/courtyard from a different street than the main villa, the Rustic Apartment is also available for weekly rental. It has three bedrooms, two bathrooms, a full kitchen and a living room, with exposed roof timbers and antique floors. The apartment is located 70 meters from lake's edge, measures 140 square metres, is fully air-conditioned, has hi-speed WIFI internet and a washing machine.

The apartment can be rented separately or used by the owners but being a detached building with independent entrance, it does not affect the privacy of the main villa. Guests of the Rustic Apartment or owners do not have acess to the garden or pool unless the entire property is rented by the same group.
