Villa Breakwater Griante

From 58,500€ per week
Menaggio, Lake Como
Lake Como
1900 sq. m

A singular sensation

On the West shore of Lake Como, a 5 minute boat ride across from Bellagio and outside the hamlet of Tremezzina, is a 1900 sq. m and all-encompassing luxury villa with a magical lakefront setting and access to a small pebble beach. Unlike the grand classical villas this area is renowned for, this property is a revelation enclosed by pine forest and sheltered by imposing and verdant rocky headlands. Both Milan airports (Linate and Malpensa) are a relatively short car ride from this extraordinary property; a former industrial boatyard that after a very considerate and 3-year-long renovation is now a fabulous luxury villa. Strong, sharp geometric lines are principal architectural features, added to which is a muscular flourish of eye-catching wood, leather, steel and glass elements. There is a beautiful finish to the décor, inside and out. The finest modern Italian furnishing and carefully selected and placed artwork add to the villa overwhelming warmth and complement the interior’s linear, open plan design. Air conditioning, ‘state-of-the art’ home entertainment and automation systems, a cinema room, a well-stocked cellar, a cosy African-inspired cigar/snug room and high-tech fitness and spa areas provide extra appeal inside. Outside there is a top deck, barbecue area, a heated outdoor pool by the shore and an abundance of space, allowing the opportunity to luxuriate together or privately in the sunshine and under the moonlight. The varied and wide wood-decked terraces, which are arranged on two levels, provide a 180° panorama of scenic splendour and sitting areas arranged around steel ‘braceri’ (outdoor fire cauldrons) add to the immense sensuous sophistication and flair.

Arranged over 3 levels, this luxurious villa sleeps up to 16 guests in 8 spacious bedroom suites with large windows, one of which is the fabulous master suite on the top floor; all provided with quality furnishings, linen and ultra-modern bathrooms. The top floor master suite opens to the 350 sq. m terrace and other bedrooms have terraces with lake view. The luxury of being in one of the best possible locations in all of Lake Como is underscored by full-length glazing and the experience will be an inescapable joy: from the start of the day breakfasting along the long, polished kitchen bar or the other side of its ‘glazed walls’ on the outdoor dining area, to night-time relaxation and contemplative viewing of the serenely still alpine lake and foothills by moonlight from any of the terraces.

Unique for its location, its design and style (with also the attentive services of a full-time villa manager and a chef), a remarkable holiday experience is guaranteed. The villa is, arguably, now one of the finest holiday rentals in Lake Como for exclusive family use (though toddlers may need constant supervision due to the open staircases and low walls on terraces). A group of friends (especially 30’s-50s) seeking lavish luxury with a modern, dynamic setting on iconic Lake Como will adore the villa, from which there is plenty of opportunity to explore Lake Como by boat using the villa’s private dock and inflatable boat.
