One of the most prestigious properties on Lake Como, this impressive period villa occupies a commanding position with spectacular views of Bellagio directly across the lake.
The outstanding, picture perfect views of Bellagio from all round the estate, makes it truly unique. The manicured Italian gardens surrounding the villa and guesthouse are some of Lake Como's finest. A unique feature of the estate is its 100% organic, fully stocked vegetable garden, olive grove and orchard providing the owners only the freshest produce and the highest standards of nutrition. There is also a mountain steam providing drinking water making the estate fully self-sufficient and wonderfully ecological.
The large, glass, enclosed portico, with incomparable views over Bellagio and the gardens is a multipurpose space, for the family or for formal entertaining. The dining room, the drawing room, the latter opening on to a terrace with steps descending to the garden, and the family room/library, a rather more intimate room, all face the lake. Another reception room opening on to the garden is currently used as a playroom for the young ones in the family. The large antique Venetian chandeliers, the frescoed ceilings and authentic fireplaces are present in most rooms.
