Property description
This majestic, 17th century villa is an exceptional, historical palazzo, situated along the breath-taking shores of Lake Como. This villa, which passed the hands of secular and religious nobility, has hosted gallant balls and banquets with Europe's most fashionable. It has housed meetings, concerts, and literary discussions where history was made. And within its walls remain renowned baroque masterpieces that have been admired for generations. Situated on the western shore of Lake Como, approximately 20 kilometers north of the town of Como. Because the lake's Alpine ridge resists the northern winds and its great mass of water tends to reduce sudden drops in temperature, Lake Como is particularly renowned for its generally mild and moist climate, contributing to the lushness of its shoreline. The flora along the lakeside is varied, abundant and similar to more southern Mediterranean vegetation: cypresses and laurel trees, camellias, azaleas, rhododendrons, magnolias, and palm trees. This type of vegetation characterizes the gardens and grounds of this magnificent estate. The facade, with simple and sober lines, punctuated by grey stone ornamental carvings, is re-erected in the water of Lake Como. Encircling the villa stand statues and fountains. From the Strada Regina, a nymph lowered of blue irises leads to the path to the main house, lined with box hedges, where plane trees and cypresses grow. The impressive main entrance leads to a spacious, luxurious foyer lined with beautiful frescoes by celebrated baroque artists. From the opulent foyer one can access the elegant dining area, the classic library, the three salons, and the winter garden, with flawless antique stone floors. The interiors of the villa also feature a fully equipped professional-grade kitchen, an in-home gym, an indoor swimming pool, an outdoor endless swimming pool, private lake access, two boathouses, secure parking for ten cars, reverse air-conditioning and heating throughout the interior, and a fully integrated security system. The villa, which has been renovated to provide the most luxurious facilities, can accommodate up to 12 guests in the main palazzo, additionally up to 8 people in the also recently renovated Western Wing and up to 10 people in the Villino. The main palazzo features six spacious, beautifully decorated double bedrooms, all with en-suite bathrooms, panoramic views. This villa is where the luxury meets the comfort.
