In a wonderful setting with private lake access

Villa Violino is located in the most coveted part of Lake Como between the famous Villa d´Este hotel in Cernobbio and George Clooney´s residence in Laglio. The villa sits directly on the lake in a beautiful landscaped garden setting, with a private dock and a panoramic terrace with a stunning lake view.

The villa dates back to the beginning of the last century and still belongs to the noble Swiss family that coming on holiday to Lake Como fell in love with the magical landscape and decided to build their Italian holiday home on its shores. In 2008 Villa Violino has been completely renovated and carefully restored retaining many of its original features and balancing them harmoniously with modern comforts. The owners have tastefully furnished and embellished the décor with beautiful furnishings, fine tapestries and fabrics, paintings and period antiques.

Outdoors, the garden and terrace are ideal for al fresco dining. The terrace (70 sqm) 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 football. Lake access for swimming is also available.

The convenient location, just a few kilometres from Cernobbio and only 7 km (4.4 miles) from the centre of Como, as well as easy access to public transportation (bus stop is 150 metres from the villa, ferry pier is 400 metres distant), makes Villa Violino an ideal destination for touring Lake Como. From the private dock, guests can rent a boat or use a comfortable water taxi to visit the famous Villa d´Este as well as the charming lake villages Menaggio, Bellagio and Tremezzo. Restaurants and shops are in walking distance. An 18-hole golf course is just 3 km away.

Villa Violino is on three floors with 600 square meters of interior space set on half an acre of walled gardens. As with all the lakeshore villas the lake road is located behind the property: the small loop road is close to the back of the villa so some noise is possible, but the villa has special triple-glazed windows and all the bedrooms except one, as well as the living room and dining room 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 so only the lake side is open. 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.
