About the property

3 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms. Beautiful views, absolute relax. Free WiFi

This unique lakefront villa, completely newly renovated, is something really special and unforgettable: it is right on the shore of the lake! A flowered terraced garden surrounds the property granting privacy to its guests. From the entire villa, terraces, balcony and garden you can admire a wide panorama with stunning views of the lake and the mountains. From the parking area, a stairs leads you down toward the villa and the shore of the lake. When you enter the villa, you access the ground floor where you find the living area, the dining area, the kitchen and a guest bathroom with also the washing machine. On the first floor there are the 3 bedrooms: two bedrooms have double beds, satellite TV, face the lake and have a large double window-door that exit to the balcony; the third bedroom has 2 single beds and has a window with lake view too. On the first floor there are also 2 full bathroom: one has a large shower while the other one has a jacuzzi bathtub. There is a sliding door that allows to create 2 suites: one with one double bedroom and the bathroom with the bath tub; the other one with one double bedroom, the bathroom with the shower and the bedroom with the 2 single beds. This gives an added sense of privacy for example in case of guests like 2 couples or a family with granparents. From the living area you access the front terrace equipped with table and chairs, and also the large terrace next to the house where you have the sunbeds, the BBQ and another dining table with chairs for outside dining. A stair leads you from this area to the bottom level of the villa where there is another terrace, a little garden with plants for cooking like rosemary, sage and mint and the gate to exit towards the lake for a swim or to the lake promenade for a walk. The house is very quiet and the lake provides absolute serenity, but it is possible to find more life just walking to the main beach of the village, where the locals, the tourists and the windsurfers meet. Cremia and the Northern part of Lake Como in general, is known worldwide as one of the best spots for sailing, windsurfing and kitesurfing. A local wind from South comes every day in the early afternoon and assures fun for the sail lovers...and a fresh breeze in hot days! In the village, within walking distance from the house, there are a couple of restaurants-pizzerias and coffe bars. Other good restaurants a bit further, but also easy to reach by foot. along the lake promenade. The beautiful 4 km pedestrian lake promenade from Cremia to Musso passes right in front of the villa and allows to enjoy marvellous views of the lake and the mountains during a relaxing walk. Private parking space for 2 cars. Free wi-fi.

About Deborah

My name is Deborah and I live in Menaggio, on Lake Como, where I grew up. I'm one of the locals! My father purchased this villa some years ago and after fully renovation, we decided to rent it on a short term base for the people who wish to spend a nice and relaxing holiday in this beautiful part of the world.

What makes this villa unique

Lakefront...lakefront...and again lakefront! Spoil yourself on holiday!

Guestbook comments from the owner

"Now that's what I call relaxing...We wanted somewhere quiet and peaceful, and that is exactly what we found here on Lake Como. The location on the lakeside was just perfect, the view was amazing and its position at the end of a public path meant that we were rarely disturbed by passer-by's. It was truly idyllic. Breakfast on the terrace each morning as the sun came up from behind the mountains was fantastic and we used the outside BBQ nearly every evening to cook dinner. The house was well presented with everything you need inside and out. The proximity of the village nightlife was just right…a nice stroll to the hotel for a glass of wine, friendly service and good food was about as exciting as it got for us and that was just what we wanted.

The reception and assistance we had in booking and getting to the house was exceptional, nothing was too much... We hope to return again soon!! Thank you!!!!"

"Comfortable villa with incredible view. We had a fabulous week at the villa. It has an amazing view and it's very well equipped, the beds are very comfortable. A 5 minute stroll along the shore of the Lake takes you to two excellent restaurants. Although the villa is near the road there was no noise and it was actually very convenient for getting around to see the sights and do the watersports. I hope to return very soon! Deborah could not have been more helpful, she provided lots of information before we went and was very understanding when we were late arriving due to heavy traffic."

Wonderful holiday villa

  • 5 of 5

We had a great week's holiday in this lovely villa in Cremia. The villa was extremely clean, comfortable and well equipped. The brilliant view over-looking the lake was very special. A good base for visiting the area. We enjoyed being able to walk in the evenings the short distance from the villa to the restaurants. Deborah was very friendly, efficient and extremely helpful. After staying in many villas over the years, this is the only one where we have felt we would be very happy to return. Would highly recommend.

glorious Lake Como

  • 5 of 5

we had a really lovely holiday staying in this beautiful Villa right on the edge of Lake Como. It was really peaceful and so beautiful overlooking the lake. we miss that view! At night all the lights around the lake twinkle and are so pretty. The villa had everything we needed and was ideally situated for touring the area.

Sehr schöne Villa

  • 5 of 5

Wir hatten eine sehr schöne Zeit in der Villa de Como, das Haus liegt direkt am Comer See mit einem atemberaubenden Ausblick auf die Berge. Das Haus ist sehr comfortabel und gut ausgestattet, jedoch nur durch Treppen zugänglich. Das nächste Lebensmittelgeschäft liegt ca. 2 km entfernt. Die Betreuung durch Deborah war ausgezeichnet. Mille grazie! (Dayse, Ana Alice, Otto und Fabio).
