Description from manager

Villa Virginia is a beautiful villa situated on the shores of the stunning Lake Como. The villa is surrounded by a classic landscaped garden with a panoramic terrace and a private dock. It shares the romantic waters of Lake Como with the nearby famous Villa d’Este hotel in Cernobbio and George Clooney’s residence in Laglio.

Villa Virginia rents only from SATURDAY TO SATURDAY.

Villa Virginia is fully air conditioned throughout the property. There is a new swimming pool (10.2m x 4m and 1.5m deep) in a beautiful lakeside position. The pool can be heated for an extra fee, and can be covered at night to keep it warm and clean.

This beautiful Lake Como Villa dates back to the beginning of the century and still belongs to the Swiss family that built this as their holiday home after falling in love with the region during an Italian vacation. It was carefully restored and updated in 2008. The owners tastefully furnished and embellished it, while striving to retain many of its original characteristics and balancing them harmoniously with modern comforts. The restored villa includes classical tapestries and fabrics, floors made from fine wood with geometric inlays, beautiful painting on the walls, family period furnishings, a modern and fully equipped kitchen, WiFi internet connection, and a Plasma TV with satellite reception.

Villa Virginia can also be rented for a larger group of 16 - 17 guests. Please see Villa Virginia 16.

The property is situated in a peaceful and beautiful, yet convenient location. The villa looks directly onto Lake Como and has a lovely private garden and boat dock. Its location, a few kilometers from Cernobbio and only 7 km from the center of Como makes Villa Virginia an ideal destination for both tourism and business. Public transportation is also easily accessible from the villa as there is a bus stop 150 meters away and the Navigazione dei Laghi ferry is 400 meters away.

From Villa Virginia’s 70 square meter terrace guests will enjoy a full view of the lake and can sunbathe or dine al fresco in complete privacy. Lake access for swimming is also available. For your enjoyment, there also a heated Jacuzzi spa in the garden, with a panoramic view of the lake. From the villa's private dock, guests can use a rental boat or water-taxis to visit the charming villages of Lake Como, Menaggio Bellagio, and Tremezzo. A variety of restaurants and shops are at walking distance.

As with all the lakeshore villas the lake road is located behind the property. Please note that this is not the main Lake Como road, but a smaller local road. Rooms that do not face the lake are provided with triple glasses to ensure that guests enjoy a quiet and peaceful ambiance.

Bedrooms are located on the upper levels of the villa. For guests with walking difficulties, it is possible to place a single bed on the ground floor in the living room area. Please inquire about this when booking. Kindly note that the bathroom with shower on the ground level is not wheel chair accessible. Guests with walking difficulties should also note that the parking area is not on the same level as the villa entrance.

Villa Virginia 10 accommodates up to 10 guests in 5 bedrooms. Upon request and for an extra fee, an additional guest can be accommodated. Please request at the time of booking.

Villa Virginia offers our special “arrive and relax” package:
