Lake Como luxury villa - This stately villa sits majestically on the shores of Lake Como, near the town of Limonta in the heart of the 'Oliveto Lario' just a short distance from the well known town of Bellagio. Dating back to the 19th century, the property has been built in a liberty style and is surrounded by a landscaped park and centuries old trees.
There are picture postcard views stretching away across the lake and inland, including towards the Grigna mountain range, the Rhaetian Alps and towards the picturesque town of Varenna. Cherished for the last century by the property owners, the villa also benefits from modern conveniences including air conditioning, WiFi internet and swimming pool. The end result is an exclusive residence and an ideal place to enjoy Lake Como in style.
