Argegno Villa Rental Photos and Description

8 Bedrooms, 8.0 Bathrooms, 8 Sleeps

Draw inspiration from the scenery, architecture and furnishings at Villa Napoleon I. The historically designated eight-bedroom home was built in the 18th century and was later home to the opera composer Vincenzo Bellini. The villa’s breathtaking views of Lake Como and lush grounds are matched in splendor by its carefully designed and lavishly decorated interiors.

With their eleven working fountains, the villa’s grounds alone are a work of art. Stroll down to the private dock on Lake Como, or up to the pool terrace, which is surrounded by citrus trees, a greenhouse and a 12th-century bell tower. There are outdoor sitting and dining areas with gorgeous views of the lake and mountains, as well as a gym and a playground for children. In the evenings, make cocktails at the bar, gather in the home theater or music and billiards rooms, and send the kids to the two playrooms. For comfort and convenience, the property hasa fireplace, a wine cooler, computer and Wi-Fi access.

Soaring ceilings, symmetrical layouts and elaborate moldings and frescoes make the interiors of Villa Napoleon I stately and traditional. In the double-height music room, an antique piano and tufted sofas sit under pale peach walls and a second-floor gallery. Other sitting rooms feature a marble fireplace and mahogany bar, and fresh flowers from the estate’s garden provide a finishing touch. The formal dining room has a beautiful ceiling fresco by Andrea Appiani, while a second Tuscan-inspired dining room is the place for more casual meals. Despite the well-preserved elegance of the rest of the home, the fully equipped kitchen has state-of-the-art appliances.

The villa has four bedrooms with king beds, three bedrooms with queen beds and one bedroom with a twin bed; all have en-suite bathrooms. As in the common living areas, many of the bedrooms have rich paneling, sumptuous drapes and bedding and Murano chandeliers, and the bathrooms are clad in more paneling, wallpaper or marble.

While the villa has all the amenities of a boutique hotel and enough to entertain for weeks, it’s also not far to nearby towns. You’ll find Cadenabbia a 6.5-mile drive away, Bellagio, a 8.5-mile drive, Menaggio, a 9-mile drive, and Varenna, a 10-mile drive. Take a day trip to the Lake Como funicular railway, 14 miles from Villa Napoleon I, and for air travel, head to the Lugano airport, 30 miles away, or Malpensa Airport, 48 miles away.
