Description

Village beauty with the lake at her feet

As you arrive at the scenic village of Torno on the banks of Lake Como opposite Moltrasio and you will encounter a pedestrianised centre, at the end of which is this surprising luxury villa.  It is one of the most beautiful private lakefront properties available and getting there is an adventure in itself.  Access is on foot only, but the villa has a small car with driver that will porter your luggage from the edge of this atmospheric village with its maze of narrow and stepped walkways, staircase passages and low-archway alleys, to water’s edge.  On the way down (500 metres) you may want to stop at enticing craft shop or be tempted for a drink with the locals in the bar on the marina to watch the local fishermen at work.   By the time you arrive at this quiet corner villa and step through its unassuming main entrance, it feels like home and the florid splash of light and joyously bold colours will lift the senses.  The entrance hallway continues, elongated, as the main corridor that connects the airy and elegantly antique-furnished rooms of this lovingly maintained family villa. It has remained, architecturally, unchanged since its construction in the eighteenth century and now modern amenities and technology are added for extra comfort and convenience.  The specially designed marble bathrooms convey art-deco overtones and impress by their arrangement of free-standing bathtubs, retro fixtures and double-height windows.  The living room has a remarkable gallery of double-height bay windows looking out to either the lake or open to the villa’s delightful lower terrace lined with lemon trees in gigantic terracotta pots and a hidden hydraulic swimming pool, which rises and submerges effortlessly on the press of a button switch.

There are 3 levels to this villa, which accommodates up to a total of 13 guests in 7 luxurious bedrooms en suite:  3 on the first floor (one is a single with lounge and private balcony terrace with lake view) each have a dressing room and the 4 suites on the top floor open to a garden veranda. Whilst the quality of the interior living areas is undoubted, it is outside where indulgent relaxation will be at its peak.  The terrace is a truly captivating spatial setting in which you may recline on sun loungers by the pool or sit in the shade of a giant umbrella shade with a glorious lake and mountain vista before you.  Later in the evening, with pool or no, it becomes a generous space for lavishly entertaining family and friends. At the back of the villa you may retreat to enjoy solitary silence and peace in the furnished garden lounge, whilst keeping an eye on the younger ones in the conservatory and games room, distinguished with an antique table football.  Whenever you are ready, a boat from the villa’s private jetty will be available to transport you to the delights of lake’s picturesque villages and local culinary centres.

The hallmarks of this luxury villa are its unusual village setting, the commanding view from the bank of the lake and a glorious sense of privacy in privileged comfort.  Getting to this holiday home for family and friends is half the fun!  Furthermore the villa could well be considered an alternative option for any special celebration or corporate event requiring a suitable charm and elegance.
