Rezzonico Villa Rental Photos and Description

Luxury detached Villa in the beautiful historic town of Rezzonico

The property which has a part stone clad facade and is built into the mountain side, rises majestically from the road via a private drive. There is car parking available both on the lower road level and up at the villa for several cars.

The villa consists of five bedrooms (1 double with en suite. 1 twin with en suite, 2 further doubles and 1 single and 2 further shared bathrooms + a shower/laundry room in the basement. A magnificent open plan sitting/dining room with vaulted ceiling has picture windows to make the most of the wonderful views that this Villa is fortunate enough to enjoy. It has a large luxurious leather corner sofa positioned to again make the most of the views. The bright red fully equipped kitchen complete with breakfast table has large windows overlooking the mountains. Tiled floors and granite/marble staircases complete the picture.

The bedrooms all have cherry wood beds and double wardrobes apart from the master bedroom which has a brass bed. All double rooms have king-size beds.

The villa has a balcony on three sides where you will find seating to enjoy your afternoon tea whilst basking in the sun and enjoying the vista. A large covered stone terrace and garden sit on the 4th side with lake and mountain views. This is where you will spend much of your time, having breakfast, lunch and dinner al fresco. It will be an effort to drag yourself away to the BBQ a few short steps away.

** POOL OPENING DATES ~ 1st May - 30th September 2013

Rezzonico: Rezzonico is located in the Province of Como in the Italian region of Lombardy. It lies on the north-west shore of the lake and has a population of approximately 1100 people. The nearest large town is Menaggio, which is about 10 minutes drive to the south.

There is a castle on the lake side of Rezzonico which dominates the village, that was built by Pope Clements XIII family in the XIV century. Many years ago, wealthy Milanese families used to use this location as their main summer retreat, which is testament to the beauty of the area.

Rezzonico is a really delightful little village with winding narrow cobbled streets in between the ancient houses with their elegant portals and portico's, where fishermen spread out and repair their nets. There are a few restaurants, a small supermarket, bank and a pharmacy. A small market is held on Wednesday, every two weeks, which makes for a great atmosphere. There are many picturesque spots and secluded beaches along the shoreline.

Skiing and Golf: If you fancy combining the Lake Como atmosphere & elegance with a few day trips to the ski slopes, then there are plenty of ski resorts to choose from, just over an hour away by car. Madesimo is great for beginners, mostly intermediates with some adrenalin runs but is surrounded by some of the most amazing alpine scenery. The local resorts of Pian Della Betulle & Piani de Bobbio are also only an hour away across on the Menaggio to Varenna car ferry.St Moritz is one of the most famous ski resorts in the world, 2 hours from Rezzonico and 45mins from Chiavenna by car. It boasts 320 days of sunshine every year (the best record for Switzerland). Play a round a golf at the very famous Menaggio & Cadenabbio Golf Club. We recommend having lunch in the Club House - absolutely delicious!

  • 5 of 5
This is a wonderful, wonderful holiday home. It is bright, airy, modern, clean, quiet, comfortable, spacious (there was ample room for our group of nine, with dining tables big enough for all of us inside the house and also outside on the patio), child-friendly (great swimming pool, game room downstairs); the kitchen is fully equipped, there is an ample supply of linens, towels, etc. But the best part is the views: from all the rooms, the patio, the lawn by the pool, looking east and south over the lake and the soaring mountains rising out of the lake, the views are breathtaking. And then of course there's the whole area to explore: hiking and walking trails, ferries on the lake, Belaggio, Menaggio, Varenna and the other little towns on the lake, shops, fine restaurants (everything from the local pizza parlor in Rezzonico to a Michelin-starred restaurant in Belaggio), gelatto (!), beautiful villas and gardens. We all loved every minute of our week at Villa Louise. It doesn't get any better.

The villa is in the locality of Marena, 310m above sea level in the commune of San Siro (formerly known as Santa Maria Rezzonico). It is conveniently situated - a 10 minute drive from the Menaggio/Cadenabbia 18 hole International golf course; the second oldest Golf Club in Italy www.menaggio.it and also ski resorts in the Alps, both in Italy and Switzerland, are a one to two hour drive.

A fifteen minute leisurely walk down to the lake will bring you to Rezzonico with its medieval castle and Pizzeria. You can also swim in the lake from the beach there, which is 5 mins away on foot. The beach is near the Hotel Ristorante Sole where you can sample the local delicacies. The beautiful town of Menaggio which is located on the western shore of Lake Como is about 10 mins. away with its ferries, www.navigazionelaghi.it, cruisers, shops banks and restaurants. You can relax in the piazza whilst you decide on which flavour ice cream to have!

Other Activities: Float Plane/Helicopter,Funicular Railway,Public Villas & Gardens,

Golf: There are Golf clubs around Lake Como: The Cadenabbia & Menaggio Golf Club and is Italy's oldest golf course. Established in 1907 with 18 holes Par 70, it is located above Menaggio near Croce, in Grandola ed Uniti, approx. 20 min. by car. Tel: +39 344 321 03. Green Fees: Weekdays €55, Weekends and Holidays €70 Euros; Golf Cart Rental €36.

Restaurant Golf at the club serves fantastic food and is well recommended.. Guests are always welcome, please call beforehand to check course rules. Golf Club Menaggio: (Menaggio Como).

Ski: This beautiful lake region of Italy is not the best for skiing as you may imagine, despite its scenery, crisp air and near perfect visibilty and mountains capped in winter snow. It does however have Skiing opportunities at local resorts for a day out.

There is a small ski area on Mt. Lema, not more than 10 km from Lugano, but you have to be lucky to have enough snow for skiing. In Ticino, the local Swiss Canton, the best places to ski are probably either San Bernardino (south of the pass of the same name) or Airolo (south of Gotthard pass). Both are reachable in about 1 hour by car across the Swiss border.

There are direct trains to Airolo as well from Lugano and hence from Italian Stations. To S. Bernardino there is only a bus connection. For more snow try Andermatt (on the north side of Gotthard pass) which has normally good snow conditions and a good choice of runs.

The closest major ski resorts are St. Moritz and Madesimo toward the Splugen Pass which is approx. 100K
