Our front lake Villa has been renovated this year and it is composed by two similar apartments with direct access to the lake beach from the garden surrounding the property. Both of the lettings are blessed by a stunning view over Como Lake and surrounding mountains.
Apartment "Marcello" is situated on the ground floor of the Villa and it can be accessed through a large terrace with amazing view over the lake and it is composed of two bedrooms, one bathroom, one kitchen and a spacious living room with sofa bed and a big front lake window. The main bedroom is furnished with a comfortable king size bed, a large wardrobe and has a window with a beautiful view over the lake which is just in front of the property. The second room offers 2 single beds, a wardrobe and a desk.
Both rooms are served by a bathroom that has everything needed (toilet, bidet, sink) and it is equipped with a Teuco multifunction shower giving our guests the opportunity to relax with its SPA features such as turkish bath, hydro massage and aromatherapy. In the same space of the living room there is a nice kitchen with fridge, dishwasher, freezer, coffee machine, oven and that is fully equipped with kitchen items and cutlery which will make your cooking experience unforgettable.
In order to celebrate the italian style, we furnished the property using charming ancient furniture matched with modern design items aiming to meet the expectations of a sophisticated and demanding international audience.
The Villa is surrounded by a spacious garden with private access to the beach and a lake view terrace ideal for warming up your day enjoying a tasty breakfast.
If you intend to come by car we have a private parking where up to six cars will find space. We suggest that because even if you can find restaurants, bars, groceries shops on a walking distance and a bus line to Como and Menaggio is stopping nearby, driving a car will definitely give you a broader range of options resulting on a more pleasant stay and the possibility to better discover beautiful spots in the area. In fact, it is definitely not a case if George Clooney, Richard Branson and many others bought wonderful Villas on Lake Como.

Lake Como is a top visited destination in Italy thanks to its breathtaking landscapes, mountains and mild climate that attracts aristocrats and wealthy retreated since Ancient Roman time. The area is particularly appreciated by sailing sports lover thanks to the steady breezes that are blowing the region as well as for trekking and long walks through the ancient and picturesque hamlets located along the lake shores.
As I was born in the area I will be happy to show you all the places of interests, activities and festivals that are taking place in the region.
