A turn of the century villa in a village

Chalet Ada is a lovely historic villa located on the western shores of Lake Como in the town of Laglio, one of the most sought-after villages on the lake. The villa takes its name from the Italian poetess Ada Negri, who took inspiration for her poems and novel from here.

The property, literally just a stone’s throw from the lake, is located on the famous old road that lines Lake Como and that winds its way past some of Italy’s most famous villas and through some of the lakes most stunning and well known towns.

The historic villa which dates back to the end of the 19th century includes 6 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms and can comfortably sleep up to 11 guests. An additional bed for a child can be provided upon request when booking. The spaces have been tastefully restored throughout whilst maintaining the villa’s unique charm where elegant period furniture seamlesslymixes in with high quality modern finishes.

The ground floor consists of an entrance hall, a large lounge with decorated ceilings and marble floors, a dining room with seating for 12 people, a modern kitchen complete with all amenities and a bathroom.

The first floor includes two bedrooms, including the main master suite, each with their own en suites. The master suites opens onto a long balcony with lake views.

The second floor includes four bedrooms and two bathrooms including one bedroom with en suite. Two of the bedrooms on the second floor have lake views.

The villa boasts stunning gardens and grounds offering complete privacy and seclusion which is a rarity in this particular part of the lake. The large and well manicured lawn where the beautiful swimming pool is found is a true gem where guests can whittle away hours on end sunning by the pool or enjoying alfresco dining in the numerous outdoor dining spots found within the grounds of the property.

The location is excellent with the villa positioned just 50 minutes drive from Milan Malpensa International Airport and 45 minutes from Lugano International Airport. The town of Laglio occupies one of the best positions on the lake, on the most exclusive stretch of Lake Como, situated amongst some of the area’s most beautiful villages, an ideal launching pad to explore the lake and its towns by boat.

The convenient location, just a few kilometres from Cernobbio and only 16 km from the centre of Como, as well as easy access to public transportation (pier for water taxi is 150 metres distant, bus stop is 700 metres, ferry pier is 6 km metres), makes Chalet Ada an ideal destination for touring Lake Como.

The lake can be reached within a minute of leaving the front door and within a two-minute walk from the villa there are restaurants and shops.
