Italy, Lake Regions, Lake Como ~ 6 Bedrooms ~ 6 Bathrooms ~ Sleeps 12

On the Western shores of Lake Como and across from Bellagio, sits this very grand and impressive residence with the full views of the lake in front and to the back, the towering mountains . Elegant shimmering black and gold wrought iron entrances with pillars and ancient statues keeping watch over the serene lake and the Swiss Alps in the distance. The immense formal entrance gardens with designs of flower beds, carefully tended sculpted grass areas through which small antique tiled path create what looks like a beautiful mosaic. The gardens to the back are full and green, cooled by tall century old trees and some lower bushes with lovely blooms. A private path takes you to the upper level of the park where you find a very private and delicious lap swimming pool.

The interiors are two worlds and very separate and different. A beautiful, elegant, warm and welcoming residence, as well as a private museum for the resident guests only. Viewing by appointment and with the personal curator. The entrance foyer is richly frescoed and offer tall ceilings and big doorways and widows with views of the lake. Most rooms face the lake, with the views of the water from tall floor to ceiling windows and doors. There are informal lounges as well as more formal settings - depending on the occasion. Dine formally in the frescoed dining room with crystal chandelier or informally in the Chef's kitchen – the favorite of most guests, where 14 guests can sit at the table for an intimate meal. All of the six air-conditioned bedrooms are large, boasting seating areas with writing desks and private en-suite bathrooms.

This is a residence which reflects the owners love and pride – their family home which is always ready to receive them. It is not a residence that is open only when guests are expected. Each day the staff is there as if to receive guests – throwing the doors and windows open, dusting, touching up and arranging fresh cut flowers. It is indeed a home in the true sense of the word – receiving you with warmth, happiness and a friendly atmosphere. We recommend this residence to the very discriminating and meticulous guests who are also sophisticated and well traveled. Here is your opportunity to enjoy living in a truly historic residence with modern comforts.
