The first feeling you have arriving at Villa Torno is the strong energy emanating from a wild and uncontaminated place. Landscape and Nature do the rest: the rock cavity in the basement and the breathtaking views towards the lake.
The Approach Has Been to combine historic and modern elements in a way That enhances the innate beauty of each by virtue of its contrast with the other. The house is very private and surrounded by conservation land, wood and rocks. The priority is the relationship between the inside and outside living space. All the traditional materials were used in a contemporary way.
A large living room with sliding glass doors lead out onto an adjoining That terrace and a breathless lake view.
The kitchen in the old stone part with fireplace
Their 4 bedrooms with en suite bathrooms for 8 persons: the master bedroom 'romantic' with double bed, bedroom 'hollow' with double bed, remaining two bedrooms 'sunset' and 'rocks' can be prepared either with twin beds or double bed, According to guest's requirement.
3. 000 square meters of lush green and terraced gardens.
As the house is in a dominant position above the charming village of Torno to reach the property you have to pass I'll be back and take a narrow uphill road of about two minutes drive.

Torno is a really charming village Which stretches into the lake with its rocky promontory. It has maintained the forms of the ancient village in the narrow streets, the simple houses, the small and big churches, the fountains and the characteristic small square on the lake, it's called the little Portofino of the Lake Como.
It is about 5 km from Como and 15 km from Bellagio. It is very pleasurable to move around by public boats or simple walking in order not to miss the suggestive panoramic points That offer views of the villages, of the lake and of the mountains.
