Key Info
  • Swimming pool
  • Great for children of all ages
  • No pets allowed
  • Private garden

Villa Belcanto sits on the hillside of a 60-acre estate which also includes five other houses and a castle. The landscape surrounding it is uniquely beautiful. Enjoy the breathtaking view from the garden: let your eyes wander over the three branches of Lake Como and on towards Bellaggio, a spectacular long-distance view hardly to be surpassed by any other. In addition, the property features a private pool - an asset only very few villas on the lakeside can boast. There is a charming, small restaurant located within walking distance (100 m) of the villa, while other restaurants, shops, ferry and railroad station are located in Varenna, just ten minutes away by car.

Apart from the interestingly curved pool with a panoramic view, the property also features an extensive garden planted with roses and olive trees as well as a spacious recreation room (approx. 10 m from the villa). This space is equipped with several large tables, a table football, a card table, satellite TV with large screen and Internet WIFI connection, and on special request when booking a kitchen will be opened and guests can cook and dine in this room.

Furthermore there is a shared tennis court (500 m from the villa), which is managed by a local tennis club. Also rackets are available - but master practitioners will prefer to bring their own.

The main part of the villa sleeps 7 guests. Guests can also choose to rent the top floor where there are two "lofts", each sleeping 4. A total of 15 people can be accommodated.

Additional information: All of the bedrooms and bathrooms are located on the upper floor, and the pool is approx. 100 m from the villa, accessed by a garden path. Therefore, we do not recommend this property for guests with walking difficulties. The other five houses (Casa Rossore with a private pool and the four houses Casa Selvina, Casa Vanni, Casa Donata and Casa Rosina sharing a pool) can be rented individually or together to sleep approx. up to 43 guests. The spacious recreation room of Villa Belcanto has tables and chairs to seat such a large group. The housekeeper's family lives in an independent apartment in the basement of the property, and the owner's family, when in residence, lives in a section at the back of the house.

Varenna, called “pearl of the lake”, is a quaint village lying on a promontory on the east coast of Lake Como. It is a quiet lakeshore town of beautiful old houses and romantic panoramas. Olive and cypress trees testify to the mild climate of the area, along with many botanical specimens normally found in warmer climates. A romantic walkway along the lakefront links the town center with Olivedo, the landing point for ferries and steamers. Because ferries connect it to other towns on Lake Como including a car ferry, and the train comes directly from Milan centre to Varenna (train ride little more than one hour), it is an ideal base for exploring northern Italy as well as the southern Swiss Alps. Varenna offers many wonderful possibilities for daytrips. Explore the castle of Vezio (5 minutes walk from the villa). Visit the gardens of Villa Monastero, Bellagio and Menaggio (15 minutes by ferry), Tremezzo and the famous Villa Carlotta, and Como, with its historic monuments, churches, and shopping.

Varenna, with its brightly painted houses and flowers along the lake edge, is located just 4 km downhill. Visitors remark on the quiet and tranquility of Varenna, the relaxation afforded by the unhurried pace of this peaceful village. Take in the lovely walk along the lake edge down to the small stone beach which is inhabited by ducks, and enjoy some ice cream or coffee from the gelaterie nearby, or sit at an outside terrace of a cafe on the water's edge to enjoy a meal and the beautiful scenery: the calm lake, the towns of Bellagio and Menaggio across, and the snowcapped mountains in the distance. Along the arcade near the water are a few shops, boutiques, and cafes. The sporting club in Varenna (3 km) has beach facilities.
