Sublime gardens, exquisite décor combining classic and chic styling, and arguably the best view on the lake. Welcome to Villa Luca..
Lovingly restored and cared for, this art-nouveau Villa oozes character and charm - a true haven for pleasure seekers. Large enough to offer all of the grandeur of an Italian Villa, yet small enough to ensure that boutique-hotel-style comfort and warmth, one of Luca's many appeals must surely be its perfectly proportioned size.
Offering spacious accommodation sleeping up to 6 guests, Luca enjoys two large double bedrooms (master with luxury en-suite) one single bedroom, comfortable lounge with breath taking views across the lake, a well appointed kitchen leading to spacious dining room, and two further bath/shower rooms.
Stepping out onto either of the large terraces, Luca's stunning gardens await. Affectionately termed as 'Mini Carlotta' by the locals, it bares a striking resemblance to those of world famous Villa Carlotta, situated close by. Complete with her ornate fountain, steps and dazzling flower beds, don't be surprised to see passers-by snapping away, keen to capture the beauty on their way past!

Como's untouched beauty has been a hot topic in travel guides and glossy magazines throughout the world, especially since George Clooney's much publicised purchase of Villa Oleandra in the town of Laglio. Other celebrity neighbours include Donna Versace and Michael Schumacher. But with all its beauty and activities for everyone, Como is an all year round holiday spot for those who enjoy the finer things in life!
Getting to Lake Como is simple. A range of airlines fly daily including British Airways, BMI Baby, Alitalia and Easyjet, to Milan's two airports; Malpensa International Airport, to the northwest, is 40 miles from Como and has a bus service to the town of Como. The smaller Linate Airport to the east serves flights from Europe and within Italy and is connected to Milan by bus service.
Lake Como lies on the Milan to Switzerland train line. The train stops in the town of Como, where there is a tourist office in Piazza Cavour. The Ferrovia Nord Milano, a small train line that leaves Como from via Manzoni, runs only between Como and Milan.
Ferries link the major villages and towns of Lake Como, providing both a good form of public transportation and a great way to sight-see from the lake. There is also a bus system to villages around the lake.
Fancy a real glamorous treat? Why not let us organise a chaffeur driven experience from the airport to your own private villa on Como. Sports cars more your thing, or how about a speed boat? We can get you out and about in style!
Villa Lucia sits on the western shore of Lake Como ideally located to reach all the major towns on the lake such as Bellagio, Menaggio, Tremezzo, Laglio (famed now as the home to George Clooney) and Como itself.
Just a short walk is the beautiful Lido di Cadenabbia with its lovely swimming pool, bar & restaurant. Just 100m is the Cadenabbia ferry port which provides access to all major towns on the lake for both cars and passengers, with Tremezzo and Villa Carlotta ports also within walking distance.
There are some fabulous pavement cafes, restaurants and typical Italian bars a walk away from the villa to cater for breakfast, lunch and dinner and anything in between! A must is dinner at our favourite - Al Veluu which is said to be one of the best restaurants in Europe and a favourite with many of the rich and famous! There are also various small shops in the village of Cadenabbia and neighbouring Tremezzo, a small grocer who sells fresh bread, milk, fruit and veg and your daily conveniences is ideal during your stay. There is a much larger supermarket in nearby town Lenno or Bennetts superstore in Como sells everything you need and more should you want to stock up at the beginning of your holiday.
There is an endless list of places to visit when on Lake Como, our favourites include the beautiful botanical gardens of Villa Carlotta just a short walk from Villa Lucia and is said to have over 500 species of plants and flowers, the bustling town of Bellagio (said to be one of the most beautiful towns in Europe) where you can enjoy a gelato from one of the many stalls or sip a glass of champagne at the world famous Villa Serbelloni.
Activities abound on the lake; during the summer Como comes alive with the lake buzzing with sail boats and speedier alternatives! Swimmers and divers also enjoy the lake during the summer. Just a short walk from Villa Lucia, is the recently opened Cadenabbia lido, for those who enjoy the pool and a nice cool drink whilst the kids play! Do take a couple of the lake excursions - a great way to explore Como it is also the only way to truly appreciate this area and the glamorous lakeside villas that adorn its coastline.
Wine tasting is of course a necessity in the local Cantina Follie in Tremezzo, sailing and wonderful boat excursions around the lake are also a great way to explore.
Golf: Menaggio & Cadenabbia Golf Course is located nearby as is said to marvel the best of golf players. This fantastic 18 hole, 5442m, par 70 course is one of the most ancient golf courses in Europe, with steep inclines, sweeping fairways and spectacular views en route. Open from March to November, is certainly one to add to your list.
The world famous Villa D'Este also offers an 18 hole course and is said to be the most varied and difficult of the European par 69 courses, along with one of the most magnificent viewpoints on Lake Como itself
The central lake area is famous for some of the most elegant villas and gardens that are open for all to discover and marvel at. Some of our favorites include Villa Carlotta just a short walk from Villa Lucia, the 17th Century Villa Serbelloni across the waters in Bellagio and Villa Balbianello made famous by Star Wars and James Bond this little paradise is only accessible by boat.
