Listed in Vanity Fair’s magazine feature as one of the great villas of Lake Como, this famed historical villa (ID 1049) has undergone a multi-million euro transformation, in a no-expense-spared programme led by the Milanese Fashion house Etro.

The beautifully finished villa sits in its own beautiful private parkland and grounds, with views of the famed town of Bellagio, from its serene western shore location.

Villa Guiseppina provides the last word in elegance, luxury and style and is perfectly complemented by a full housekeeping team comprising a butler, maid, chef and chauffeur, to make your guest’s stay as refined and faultless as possible.

The villa’s interior provides elegant and sumptuous living with a contemporary-style twist, and each room has been meticulously furnished throughout, in its own unique and distinctive way. Each room features a flat screen TV, HI-FI and WIFI access for guest’s optimum comfort.

Guests can enjoy relaxing in the opulent and tranquil drawing room with its stylish seating, beautiful period features and an elegant grand piano to set the tone. A less formal TV room provides an equally sumptuous escape, with its high spec flat screen TV and entertainment system accompanied by smooth leather sofas and an ambient roaring fire.

Dining in the villa is a pleasure, with the chef taking guests on a journey of inspiring culinary delights to suit all occasions. An elegant and lavish dining room with crystal chandelier provides the perfect venue for a formal dinner party and the pretty day room, with its romantic style round dining table, soft tones and furnishings provides an idyllic place for relaxed morning breakfasts. The beautiful landscaped grounds also provide guests with a breathtaking lake view terrace, for enjoying unforgettable alfresco dinner parties and special occasions.

The opulent marble flooring and crystal chandeliers lead upstairs to the principal sleeping accommodation. Groups of up to 14 can comfortably be accommodated in the villa, with 6 bespoke luxury double bedroom suites and 1 equally stylish twin bedroom furnished with two single beds. The modernist fitted bathrooms add a stylish and complementing allure to the classic-contemporary style bedroom suites and provide a ‘taster’ to the villa’s fabulous luxury Spa and fully-climate controlled Gym. Located to a separate outbuilding, the Spa and Gym provide a serene escape from the stresses of the modern world. Spa treatments can be provided upon request and guests are also at liberty to enjoy the private infinity edge swimming pool, which overlooks the lake in a breathtaking fashion.

A sunny terrace to the side of the villa offers the perfect place to sunbathe and enjoy a good book and the pristine landscaped gardens lead across the road to a private boat mooring facility; where private boat tours can be enjoyed upon request.

Griante and Cadenabbia:

Grainte and Cadenabbia are one town, or municipality in the Province of Como which is in the Italian region of Lombardy. It lies on the western shore of the lake and is situated between Menaggio and Tremezzo. Cadenabbia is the lakeside area whilst Grainte is the area rising to the hillside.

For many years Griante has attracted famous people, for example, Villa Ricordo (Villa Margherita) was the location Guiseppe Verdi chose to compose the aria La Traviata, it was also here where Stendhal composed one of his many masterpieces Chartreuse de Parme. Griante was also a popular destination for Royalty, including Nicholas 11 of Russia, Queen Victoria, Kaiser Gulielmo 11 and also Pope Pio X1.

The area is renowned for the wonderful flowers and plants which grow in abundance, due to the sheltered location and is known as the 'Riviera of Azaleas'. Cadenabbia has many restaurants and shops, and also a good ferry service. There is a lovely walk from Griante up to the San Martino church. The views are truly unforgettable, with flowers and butterflies all the way. The path is quite steep in parts and will take about an hour each way, but the views will make it a walk to remember.

The most famous Villa on the Lake, Villa Carlotta, is in Cadenabbia and has many interesting features, especially a great art collection, luxurious rooms and wonderful gardens with a wide variety of plants from all over the world. The little Church of S. Martino sits on the mountainside and although the walk up to it it somewhat precarious, it should be on your list of places to visit as the views are unrivalled.

There are Golf clubs around Lake Como: The Menaggio & Cadenabbia Golf Club 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. 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).

Skiing:

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.100km.
