Picturesque villa overlooking the lake

Built in 1911 by an illustrious Milanese family Villa del Conte is a luxury holiday residence set on a hillside, located on the western shore of Lake Como. The location is stunning: from the villa, you can see from the headland of Bellagio to the north pre-Alps and as far as Nesso to the south. In front of the villa, there is the classic San Sisinnio church that has been represented in a Winston Churchill watercolor, painted from the garden of Villa del Conte.

The property was fully restored in 2012, while preserving original details and materials. Marble and terracotta floors, ironworks and decorations date to 1911. The mix of modern Italian design, antique paintings and statues creates a refined atmosphere.

The living area is sun-flooded because skylight enters from above. Six beautiful bedrooms (five doubles and one single) accommodate up to 11 adults and 2 kids on request. All of the double bedrooms include en suite bathrooms, the beds can be made up as twins or kings, air conditioning, satellite TV and a private terrace.

Villa del Conte offers a full home entertainment system with satellite TV as well as a movie and music library. Other amenities include wine storage, Wi-Fi and a mini spa with chromo therapy shower and aroma therapy tub. There is a daily 4-hour housekeeping and linen change service included. The villa manager is available to assist with all guest requests, arranging extras such as cooking, grocery shopping, transport and excursions.

The villa is surrounded by 3500 square meters of manicured and fenced garden. There is a large swimming pool with plenty of lounge chairs and parasols for relaxing in sun or shade. The 70 square meters terrace with barbeque is equipped for al fresco dining and has beautiful garden and lake views. The grounds are also a perfect setting for a wedding reception or other celebration.

Argegno, just down the hill (1.5 miles), is a favorite destination on Lake Como. A pedestrian road leads from the villa steep down to Argegno and the lake, covering a height difference of over 260 feet on a path just over 2600 feet in distance.

Argegno itself is located over 900 feet above sea level in a large, sunny inlet on the western shore of Lake Como, between Laglio (where George Clooney has his villa) and Tremezzo, a favorite haunt of many VIPs. The ancient center of the village with it's narrow walkways is very picturesque. A good number restaurants, bars, coffee shops and pubs attract visitors from all over the world. A hydrofoil and tourist boat connect Argegno to Como, Bellaggio and other destinations on the lake.

From Argegno you can take a cable car up to Pigra and the Argegno-Cima della Duaria conservation area - situated on a plateau with beautiful views of the lake and the mountains. Argegno has an abundance of opportunities for outdoor recreation including hiking, horseback riding, golf, and tennis.
