Lake Como Villa with Private Pool
Villa Stefania is an elegant Villa located directly in front of the Lake Como with spectacular views. The Villa’s owner has a flare and taste for exceptional antiques and collectible furnishings. He enjoys his collection of exquisite and authentic paintings, pottery and furnishings. He generously shares these treasures with his guests. He pointed out to me his meticulous and precise location of where he hangs his paintings so that under the night lights, they are seen from every angle of the home.
Outdoors, the garden and terrace are ideal for candlelit dinners or relaxing afternoons with a book. The terrace (780 sq ft) faces the lake and you can enjoy the view or sunbathe in privacy. A Jacuzzi spa and also a swimming pool (that can be heated at additional cost) are located in the garden, as well as a Ping-Pong table and table footfall. Relax at home and enjoy la dolce vita or take advantage of easy access to all the sights of Lake Como. A pergola with cover and a recently added unique outdoor chandelier make this Villa a perfect spot, lakefront to enjoy a glass of wine, slightly above is a large terrace where your group can enjoy lakeside dinners or just lounging under the moonlit skies.
The convenient location, just a few kilometers from Cernobbio and 7 km (4.4 mi) from the center of Como, with easy access to public transportation (bus stop is 165 yards from the villa; ferry pier is 440 yards) makes this Villa an ideal destination for touring. From the private dock, guests can use a rental boat or the comfortable water-taxis to visit the Villa d’Este as well as Menaggio, Bellagio, Tremezzo and the charming villages of Lake Como. An 18-hole golf course is just three km (1.8 mi) away.
Villa Stefania is on three floors with 6,500 square feet of interior space (plus basement) set on half an acre of walled gardens. The small loop road is close to the back of the villa so some noise is possible, but villa has special triple-glazed windows and most of the bedrooms face the lake which minimizes any intrusion. In addition, the road behind the villa loops off the main road and is without trucks in an exclusively villa area without loud businesses of any kind in the immediate neighborhood. The garden is walled on three sides. There is a private pedestrian underpass to the parking lot on the other side of the road which is in front of the caretaker’s and owner’s houses. Enjoy sunrise, sunset and the moonlight from one of the most beautiful terraces on the Lake.
You can rent the owner’s boat during your stay and dock it directly at the property. Cruise the lake and discover a once in a lifetime experience. The Lake is my personal favorite, it is elegant with history, richness and exception beauty beneath the towering alps.
