About The Experience
The villas are situated right on Italy’s beautiful Lake Como near the small village of Moltrasio. It’s the perfect luxury setting for large groups or special events; you are close to town while stilling enjoying peace and privacy. The grounds are full of gardens and orchards; guests can cut fresh roses and pick their own fruits and vegetables. There is a large pool, a playground for children, even a private dock for your rental boat!
Location Description

Lake Como is where tranquility meets luxury, an exclusive refuge lined with stunning villas, Mediterranean gardens, and majestic mountains. The idyllic location of this villa allows guest to make their way around Lake Como by boat or car. The villa is located near the small mountainside village of Moltrasio, which has a small private beach (with entrance fee), as well as shops, a bank, a post office, and a church. From the villa you can walk to town along the lake road, which is shared with cars but has sidewalks in some areas. A 5-minute walk will bring you to the public boats, which make stops up and down the lakeside villages. You are also only 1.5 miles away from Hotel Villa d’Este in Cernobbio—a renowned Renaissance residence converted into a luxury hotel in the 1800’s. One of the best views of the lake is Piazza Cavour, on the banks of the lake in the 2000-year-old town of Como. There is an abundance of cafes, pubs, restaurants and nightlife, shops, and several other attractions to suit any appetite.

Nearby Attractions: During your stay, visit some of the many villages along the shoreline. Menaggio is a popular tourist spot with a pedestrian-only area at its heart. Here you will find coffee shops, gelaterias, a mini-golf course with snack bar, and many restaurants. Stop by Tremezzo to see the palatial Villa Carlotta built in 1690, known for its lush Mediterranean garden and artwork within. A ferry service connects all the major towns by the lake, from the northeast town of Colico, to the most southern Como including the two branches of the lake.
