Spellbinding lakeshore luxury

A 16th-century palazzo that is certainly one of the largest and which is considered one of the most important on Lake Como sits in enticing seclusion at one of the most scenic points of the lake’s shores. The special qualities of this property that comprises a sumptuous main villa and an independent guest house (‘villino’) of comparable luxury is located on the lake’s western shore in Ossuccio; approximately 20 km north of Como town and an hour’s drive from either of Milan’s international airports. To arrive at the front door of this magnificent and recently refurbished lakefront villa you will encounter the auspicious ‘Strada Regina’; the villa’s main entrance with fountain stream of blue iris enclosed either side by cypresses, manicured lawns and gravelled footpaths flanked by high hedges. The interior is as stunning and beautified with a delightful a main entrance that leads into a lobby from which there is access to the dining room, library, winter garden and three huge salons all covered with marble floors, original frescoes on walls and ceilings and ornate fireplaces. Precious and beautiful antique pieces adorn every room and other delights include the double-height music room with grand piano and the suitably formal dining room opens to an outdoor dining terrace covered by a canopy of plants and flowers. Along with a sizeable outdoor swimming pool (8 x15 m) facing the lake and a heated infinity pool indoors, other modern luxury essentials include Wi-Fi, fully integrated security and air-conditioning systems, an internal lift serving all floors and a 26 sq. m indoor Jacuzzi. There is even a helicopter pad, as well as secure private parking for up to 10 cars.

This compelling and luxurious villa accommodates up to 20 guests: 12 in the 6 stunning bedrooms en suite in the main villa and another 8 in the 4-bed en suite villino.  Every bedroom has lake and/or garden view, the 2 master suites comprise a boudoir, dressing room and private lake view terrace and every bathroom is inlaid with marble from a different part of the world. In the Alice in Wonderland-type grounds (12,000 sq. m+) you can set off by yourself on adventure through the English-inspired gardens past statues and fountains in search any of the wonderful array of tranquil spots in which to relax with a book or crossword, or to simply enjoy the sheer beauty of the magnificent lake view encompassing slopes forested in cypress, laurel and palm trees punctuated with colours from camellia, azalea, rhododendron and magnolia blooms. From the water, you will enjoy yet more lakeside charms as the villa’s private boat (with pier and boathouse) is on standby for leisurely tours or a quick two-minute ride to the nearest restaurant serving the best local cuisine.

With its temperate climate of never harsh winters nor stifling summer heat, Lake Como is an ever-popular destination for an exclusive holiday and this stunning villa is one of its most illustrious and mesmerising offerings. This luxury villa has a full staff including chef, butler and concierge to assist providing you a holiday of unique extravagance and is a destination with few equals for picturesque weddings, family celebrations, corporate events or a special reunion of friends.
