About The Experience
This Lake Como villa is the perfect venue for weddings, family reunions, or large group gatherings: each bedroom has its own ensuite bathroom, and all beds can be made up as one queen or two twins. A large lawn area, tennis court, and private swimming pool mean that this Italian lake villa for rent has plenty of room for outdoor relaxation and recreation. Not only that, but a professional-grade kitchen provides all your group needs for a cooking class or your own personal chef. And with a great central location near Menaggio, this villa on Lake Como is also a wonderful stepping-off point for your explorations.
Location Description

This villa is located about a 10 minute drive from the lake shore village of Menaggio. Once a walled city, some of the remnants are still visible today. In the summer, Menaggio is a popular recreation area, with opportunities for windsurfing, water skiing, and other water-based activities. You could also rent a bicycle and explore the area or take a walk down the lakeside promenade, lined with flowers. Because of its central location, Menaggio is a great base for exploring the rest of the area. Drive down the lakeshore road to Tremezzo and Como, or hop on a ferry to visit Varenna or Bellagio. Known as "la perla del lago" (the pearl of the lake), Bellagio is considered by many to be the most beautiful town in Europe. Its narrow cobbled streets, breathtaking views, impeccable homes and glorious villas make it a most enchanting spot to explore. Como, located at the southernmost tip of the lake which bears its name, is perfect for a day's outing. Sights in Como include the Duomo, the austere church of San Abbondio, the Piazza S. Fedele (with many 400-year-old buildings), and the Basilica, one of the masterpieces of the maestri comacini (Como masters). Before leaving, be sure to take the funicular up to Brunate-- a small village with a spectacular view. While on Lake Como, you'll discover that the cuisine is based primarily on fish. Specialties include misultitt (fish desiccated in containers called misolte) and soused fish (fried and then pickled), along with more traditional dishes like rice with perch or smoked trout.

Nearby Attractions: Menaggio (windsurfing, water skiing, biking), Tremezzo, Varenna, Bellagio (cobbled streets, breathtaking views), Como (Duomo, church of San Abbondio, Piazza S. Fedele, the Basilica), Brunate (funicular from Como).

Exterior Description
Continuously owned by the same family since it was built, this 19th century villa faces southeast with views of the three branches of Lake Como as well as the mountains behind. It is surrounded by a beautiful park with century-old trees, a private tennis court, and a private swimming pool (10m x 6m). Parking is available for 3 cars. Also included in the rental price is a private mooring at the S. Maria Rezzonico harbor.
Interior Description

This villa has a total of eight bedrooms, all with ensuite bathrooms. All beds are 160 cm queen-size beds that can be divided into twins upon request. Two extra single beds can be added on the third floor at an extra cost. The interior of the villa is glamorous, with mosaic floors, a great wooden staircase, and statues. Although it still maintains an authentic atmosphere, the villa has recently been restored to include all the amenities of a modern house.

Ground Floor: A large foyer opens into a living room with a fireplace, satellite TV, and doors opening onto a lawn with views of the lake. A formal dining room has seating for 16, while the professional-grade kitchen is equipped with everything necessary for a chef: professional gas range and oven, American coffee maker, toaster, dishwasher, microwave, washing machine, and dryer. (Please note that the photo of the kitchen shown is of a similar kitchen; the kitchen at this villa will be comparable but slightly different in appearance.) This floor also has a guest WC.

First Floor: Upstairs there are three bedrooms. The first two each have an ensuite bathroom with a sink, toilet, shower, and large Jacuzzi tub. The third bedroom has an ensuite bathroom with a sink, toilet, and shower.

Second Floor: Up another flight of stairs you will find a large game room with a billiard table and a beautiful lake view. There are also two bedrooms on this floor.

Third Floor: On the topmost floor, there are three more bedrooms. The first two each have a lake view and an ensuite bathroom with a sink, toilet, and shower. The third bedroom has a garden view and an ensuite bathroom with a sink, toilet, tub, and shower.

Customer Reviews

Overall:
Fantastic experience.
Enjoyed Most:
The villa itself and the pool (since it was very hot the day we arrived).
Enjoyed Least:
There isn't much to NOT like about the property....maybe that fact that it is across the road from the lake, instead of on it.
Surrounding Area:
Location was great.
Nearby Events or Locales:
Too far for me to walk to town; I was happy to have a rental car.
Tips or Restaurants:
FORGET THE RESTAURANTS...food is great at the villa.
Directions:
I found the GPS to be a requirement. The gate was slow in opening so that while waiting for it to open, you are sitting in the middle of the road near a blind corner.
Check In Out:
Daniella was fantastic...she met our every request perfectly.

The hiking trails, the water, the food.
Nearby Events or Locales:
San Siro. Yes.

Ask Matteo to make eggplant parmigiano. YUM!

Overall:
Other-worldly! It is hard to imagine a more peaceful, relaxing setting for a large group such as ours. Every detail has been addressed. We were wanting for nothing. The Lake Como area is spectacular in its beauty and the leisure opportunities it offers.
Enjoyed Most:
The property is absolutely beautiful. The view of the lake from the front of the villa is breathtaking. This is an eight bedroom home but at no time did I ever feel crowded. The living space is well designed and the grounds perfect for a retreat from activity should you desire.
Enjoyed Least:
I honestly cannot think of any negatives about this property.
Surrounding Area:
I loved the fact that the property is secluded enough to guarantee privacy, yet just outside the gates you can immerse yourself totally in the local Northern Italian culture. The locals are beautiful people - friendly and very hospitable.
Nearby Events or Locales:
The villa is located in the community of San Siro. The villages of Acquaseria and Santa Maria are within easy walking distance of the villa utilizing the trails that connect the property with the rest of the community. It is best not to walk on the main road in front of the property as it is fairly busy.
Tips or Restaurants:
The villa has everything you need and then some. The villa provides an excellent guide book of the area with recommendations on things to see and do as well as restaurant recommendations. The dinner served at the Sorsasso Winery in the nearby town of Domaso is not to be missed.
Directions:
We travelled to the villa from the Milan central train station. We could have used better directions in order to get out of Milan. Milan is a sprawling city and it is easy to get turned around.
Check In Out:
The check-in process is very easy. The manager of the property is very kind and accomodating. She provided an excellent tour and orientation of the property upon check in.
