Villa | 8 bedrooms | sleeps 16
Villa Violino is located in the most coveted part of Lake Como: right on the lake shore between the famous Villa d´Este hotel in Cernobbio and George Clooney´s residence in Laglio. The villa overlooks directly the lake and is set in a beautiful landscaped garden, with a private dock and a panoramic terrace with a stunning lake view. Its convenient location, just a few kilometres from Cernobbio and only 7 km (4,35 miles) from the centre of Como, as well as easy access to public transportation (bus stop is 150 metres from the villa; ferry pier is 400 metres distant), makes Villa Violino an ideal destination for touring Lake Como. From the villa's private dock, you can use a rental boat or the comfortable water-taxis to visit the famous Villa d´Este as well as the charming lake villages Menaggio, Bellagio and Tremezzo. Restaurants and shops are in walking distance. An 18-hole golf course is just 3 km away.
The villa dates back to the beginning of the last century and still belongs to a noble Swiss family that coming on holiday to Lake Como fell in love with this beautiful landscape and decided to build their Italian holiday home on its shores. In 2008 Villa Violino has been completely renovated and carefully restored retaining many of its original features and balancing them harmoniously with modern comforts. The owners have tastefully furnished and embellished the décor with beautiful furnishings, fine tapestries and fabrics, paintings and period antiques.
Outdoors, the garden and terrace are ideal for al fresco dining. The terrace (70 sqm) faces the lake and you can enjoy the view or sunbathe in privacy. A Jacuzzi tub is located in the garden where guests also have a ping-pong table and table football. Lake access for swimming is also available. The lake road runs behind the villa and is a smaller road with no trucks. All of the bedrooms except one, living room and dining room face the lake, minimizing any noise. Guests can equally well relax at home or have easy access to all the sights of Lake Como.
