Swan Lake # 2

Swan Lake # 2

Italy, Lake Regions, Lake Como ~ 6 Bedrooms ~ 7 Bathrooms ~ Sleeps 12



This beautiful seven acre lakefront estate sits directly across the famous hotel Villa D'Este, on the other side of Lake Como and is just a short boat ride over. Located within walking distance of a most charming and historic hamlet where you will find an old church, a famous Lakefront restaurants where people arrive by boat, car or on foot. On certain days, the locals bring out their home made pastries and cakes, cheeses, sausages, fresh vegetables, fruits and other items for a mini market day.

The gardens boast rare species of trees, shrubs and flowers, thanks to a former owner who was a botanist. Sprawling green lawns and plenty of tall, elegant trees keep the park cool and comfortable during the summer months. Underground springs and small waterfalls can be found on the property. The large swimming pool which is set in the park for privacy, is surrounded by sun lounges and lawns. The pool's structure is quite unique in that it was carved out of rocks.

The two sister villas on the same estate grant guests are furnished to the highest standard, feature most up to date amenities and feature central heating as well as fireplaces throughout. The views are breaktaking and guests may access the lakes and breathtaking surrounding areas with relative ease. The terraces and patios are ideal sites for guests to experience the sunrise with espresso in hand, or enjoy cocktails while watching the most beautiful sunsets.

The villas can be rented separately to unrelated parties and the swimming pool can be shared.

The larger villa can be rented with exclusive use of the swimming pool and the park.

Guests staying at the smaller house without access to the property pool are free to enjoy the pool at the Villa D'Este.

Both properties make an ideal setting for special family occasions or, or for an executive retreat. Rented together, 26 persons can be comfortably accommodated.
