This luxury villa comfortably accommodates 14 guests, in 7 bedrooms and 9 bathrooms. On request, it is possible to rent a separated apartment for 7 guests, with 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. On the water, yet only a 5 minutes lakeside stroll from Como's central piazza, the villa is one of Lake Como's most unique and historic luxury villas. A 3 years renovation, finished in 2009, has restored the full artful splendor of 1772 while adding modern conveniences such as swimming pool, air conditioning, elevator, full gym, yoga or dance room, air conditioning and high-speed Internet. Staff on property in a separate residence. One of the famous «Seven Sisters of Como», the villa is filled with frescoes (such as one by Andrea Appiani, Italy's most famous neoclassical artist) and is the subject of a novel written in 1856 by French author Nathalie Comtesse. Few villas match this opulence and perhaps none can offer the proximity to the center of Como. Whether basking in the luxury of this 1100 sqm mansion, strolling to the medieval center of Como, or boating from the backyard on one of Europe's most beautiful lakes, your best ideals of vacation life in Italy are realized here.
