A former silk spinning mill dating back to the 17th century

Villa della Seta sits directly in front of Lake Como, in the historical center of Brienno, a small village 17 km north of Como. The villa has a unique history and special charm. It was formerly a silk mill dating back to XVII century. It had been producing silk threads until 1932. Now, it has been beautifully and thoughtfully refurbished and converted into a modern, and welcoming place to stay.

The history and the memory of the silk manufacturing are part of the villa’s present: some of its industrial heritage are today still there, blending old and new. Red bricks tiles and the ancient chimney stalk remind us of its past, while the stylish art-filled creative interiors encourage guests to unwind and feel perfectly at home.

In former times the waterfront location was a necessity, as the precious silk was loaded on large, sailing boats and led to Como's port, today thanks to its setting the villa offers spectacular views and private lake access. The peculiar design of Villa della Seta is based on stone walls, vaulted ceilings and a succession of windows affording impressive view of the lake. The villa exhibits original contemporary art works.

The villa sits on the lake shore (2 levels under the road) and can be accessed by stairs or elevator. The villa (400 sq. mt) sleeps 8+2 people in 4 air-conditioned bedrooms and 4 bathrooms. It features a garden (200 sq. mt) with outdoor furnishing and new pool directly facing the lake (ready for May 2020), a porch (100 sq. mt) and direct lake access. The pool photo in the photo gallery is a rendering (photos will be ready in early summer).

Spacious and accommodating, Villa della Seta and its sister property can serve up to 44 guests, making it ideal for large groups, including weddings, retreats and reunions. The sister property is the free-standing residential building with yellow facade, located behind the main villa. It can accommodate up to 36 people in 9 independant units (ranging from studio to 2 bedroom units), each with separate access and an outdoor space. The villa remains private and secluded from the apartments: the two buildings are free-standings, and the units do not affect the privacy of the villa.

A large open space with beautiful lake, located above the villa, view can be rented additionally. It is available on request only for our guests. It has its own access from the pedestrian road behind, sometimes it is used for practicing yoga.

On the road level there is a covered parking for 2 normal sized cars (the spa
