The four generations of the family that have lived the house have all in common the passion for culture and style. This allow guests today to enjoy an impressive, unique botanical garden and many sophisticated collections turning the Villa into a vivid museum. This outstanding late 19th century Villa enjoys one of the most impressive positions on lake Como: the property ends just against the waters of the lake offering a panoramic walk of over 300 meters. It offers breath-taking views that enhance its quietness and it is accessible also through its water entrance. You will find the marvellous centre of Bellagio only ten minutes walking.
The Villa is developed on 3 floors. All the interiors are characterised by typical Italian 19th and 20th century furniture and paintings together with many objects coming from all over the world. An impressive refurbish work has been made in the last years trying to leave the allure of the glorious 20th century style while combining modern levels of comfort. The “salone” floor is finely decorated with Genovese marble, and from the “salone” departs the great spiral staircase to the first floor. Here a huge oak library surprise guests with its nearly thirty thousand rare and antique books. From the library is possible to reach three double suites, all of them with private bath, two of them with their dressing room. One of the suite over stands a huge terrace that enjoys the full view of the lake. On the same floor there is also a comfortable lounge with TV, a chimney and a large wooden bureau. From large windows it is possible to admire the lake and the mountainous landscape. The second floor was used in old times for the staff personnel, but now it has been finely restored with three suites with their own bath. Within the property lays a dépendance that can easily accommodate staff personnel.
An elegant swimming pool withstands the lake next to the Villa allowing guests to enjoy, while swimming, the inspiring mountain landscape and the most famous Villas with their coloured gardens. The 7 hectares botanical garden and the path along the lake are perfect for relaxing walks, jogging and fitness trail. The Villa is perfect to organize water sports activities such as water skiing, wake board, water motor or sightseeing along the lake using canoes and vintage rowing boat. Famous Villas and museums can be reached using the motor or rowing boat that the Villa can provide. In only 30 minutes driving, guests can discover wonderful mountains and enjoy the most typical restaurants and the related activities. Finally guests can quietly glide on the lake enjoying the romantic view and reach exclusive locations for a refined dinner or cocktail.
