Only a five-minute stroll from Como's central piazza

Villa Galante is located in the heart of Lake Como, only a five-minute lakeside stroll from Como's central piazza. Villa Galante is one of Lake Como's most unique and historic luxury villas.

The villa dates back to the year 1772, and a three year renovation, finished in 2009, restored the villa to its original splendor while adding modern conveniences of today. The villa has a long, oval shaped pool that invites you to cool off. Inside, you will find plenty of features including a gym, yoga studio, video conferencing, game rooms and a wine cellar. An elevator takes guests between all bedroom floors. Reservation includes daily continental breakfast and daily maid service.

The villa is accessed by a large marble foyer with a circular marble staircase and an imposing chandelier hanging from a ceiling with hand-painted frescoes (some of which by Andrea Appiani, Italy's most famous neo-classical artist). The foyer leads to a gym with parquet flooring, yoga balls, mats and other equipment.

The living room has marble floors, high ceilings, antique furniture, a large chandelier and direct access to the garden overlooking the lake and a path to a lakeside promenade. Furthermore there are a formal dining room and a fully equipped gourmet kitchen.

The 8 beautiful bedrooms at Villa Galante can accommodate up to 16+1 guests. On the same property, but with a private entrance/courtyard from a different street than the villa, a rustic apartment for 6 more guests can be rented additionally bringing the total capacity to 22+1 guests. Staff lives on the property, in a separate residence.

Villa Galante is one of the famous "Seven Sisters of Como". Few villas rival Galante's opulence and perhaps none offers closer proximity to the center of Como. Whether basking in the luxury of this 12.000 square foot mansion, strolling to the medieval center of Como, or boating from the back yard on one of Europe's most beautiful lakes, Villa Galante is the perfect setting for large families and groups of friends. Its convenient location in walking distance to the centre of Como, as well as easy access to public transportation, makes Villa Gallante an ideal destination for touring Lake Como without a car.
