A glamorous place

This outstanding 19th century villa is set on five acres of private gardens with a swimming pool, a tennis court, superb lake views and a private mooring in front of the villa. Villa Camilla faces southeast, halfway up the lake, providing a superb view of the three arms of Lake Como and the beautiful mountains across the lake. The large garden has well-kept lawns, ancient sequoias, cedars, oaks, magnolias and palms.

A road runs right along the shore of Lake Como in this area, so the villa is not directly on the lake, but is directly across the road from the lake and across from the private landing. A gate and sweeping lawns lead from the lake road up to the villa.

The interior of the villa is spacious, with shining floors and a sweeping staircase connecting the floors. Recently restored, Villa Camilla maintains its traditional atmosphere. Each bedroom has its own modern bathroom. It sleeps 16 people; two or eventually four extra beds may be available additionally.

Enter the villa into a grand foyer that will make you feel as if you’ve gone back in time. The living room is large and bright, with a fireplace and plenty of comfortable seating. A dining table sits by doors that take you into the outside space. Children will love the spacious playroom with a table tennis table and table football. Also on the ground floor is a double en suite bedroom, designed for guests with restricted mobility (available on special request).

Over the further three floors are another eight double bedrooms with en suite bathrooms. All are large, bright and furnished with the attention to detail and style. Three of the en suite bathrooms also feature Jacuzzi-style bathtubs for ultimate relaxation. Also offering you the chance to unwind is a games room with billiards table and wonderful lake views from its numerous large windows.

A separate annexe a few metres from the villa can accommodate an additional two guests with a simply styled double bedroom and bathroom.

Villa Camilla is lovely for large groups and weddings because of its size and romantic setting. It is also great for family reunions and groups of friends. All of the king beds can be separated into twins, making this villa totally flexible for couples or singles in any combination.

Larger groups can rent Villa Camilla with the adjacent property La Dolce (also featured in our portfolio). Rented together the properties can accommodate up to a total of 28 guests.

Villa Camilla is an ideal location for relaxing or taking day trips around the lake, into the mountains, southern Switzerland, Como or Milan. Bicycle rentals, motorboat rentals, waterskiing and pitch-and-putt are available in Menaggio, 10 minutes away. Windsurfing is available in Menaggio, Colico and Cremia. In Menaggio you can also catch a boat or hydrofoil to take you up and down the lake between Switzerland and Como, or across to Varenna or Bellagio. There are several golf courses in the area; the closest is just 20 minutes away. Horseback riding facilities also are within 20 minutes.
