Villa in Domaso, Lake Como, Italian Lakes, Lombardy, Italy - Peaceful Location, 10 Minutes Walk To Beach, Restaurants, Bars, Supermarkets
“Villa Perla del Lago” was built in around 1920 and has belonged to the landlord’s family since 1950. In 2011-2012 it was completely restructured but at the same time maintaining many of its original distinguishing characteristics. It is positioned in a splendid sunlit spot just above Domaso on the western side of Lake Como and offers its visitors a breathtaking full landscape view: on one side one can admire the top of the lake starting from the mouth of the affluent river Adda and on the other gaze southwards as far as Bellagio. The recent restoration on the villa has preserved and partly refurbished the Liberty style which was typical of Lake Como’s villas at the beginning of the 1900s: the paintings on the walls and ceilings, the antique furniture of the bedrooms, the doors and the striking stone staircase. While maintaining this style we have tried to create a comfortable and functional setting and so the kitchen and bathroom are furnished with modern and practical items.
From spring 2016 the villa is able to receive a maximum of 14 people as also the penthouse has been completed. Please ask for rates!

Beautifully sited and appointed property villa.
We have recently returned from a weeks holiday in this beautiful villa which has been very well renovated and decorated in true Italian style. It is very spacious, clean and the modern kitchen came fully equipped with everything you could possibly need ...and more! Romina and Fabio (the owners) even stocked the American style fridge/freezer and cupboards with some essentials, including a bottle of prosecco !
The views from the villa are breathtaking. The garden is very well maintained with a large lawn and terrace and with a more than adequate undercover dining area. The decking area was clean and sheltered. Fabio came early every morning to maintain the pool. Please be aware that the pool is solar heated and although we had good weather for September, the pool was very cold.
The hot tub was a massive hit with our family. Who could not sit and relax in 40c with a chilled glass of wine and absorb the beautiful views of the lake (even in the rain)!
The villa is set in an elevated position about 15 minutes walk to a large supermarket (which we discovered closes for 3 hours over lunch). Romina and Fabio were extremely helpful in providing us with a lift back to the villa with all our food and wine. Good restaurants can be found down by the nearby ferry port, again around 15 minutes walk away.
Romina and Fabio made us truly welcome. They were incredibly attentive but by no means intrusive. They live approx 200 metres from the villa and we used WhatsApp to converse with Romina. Romina speaks excellent English and was more than happy to make restaurant and taxi bookings. She can even arrange for a chef to come and cook for you in the villa should you so wish.
We would highly recommend this villa and hope to return.
Exquisite All the Way Around!!
Exquisite villa. Absolutely the most beautiful, most well kept villa in which we have ever stayed. Picturesque cobble walkways into town, stunning views from the veranda, wonderful meals sitting in the covered pergola...Rooms were huge, spartan and extremely comfortable with beautifully done ceilings and wood floors. Kitchen had all of the amenities that you could want. The pool was refreshing and cleaned every morning by Fabio, Romina's husband. Domaso is such a lovely town and walking in the hills at Vercana was absolutely delightful. Really, I could go on and on about how comfortable and happy we were to be in such a magical place. Romina was accommodating in every possible way and a very warm host. We will stay at Villa Perla Del Lago again.
STUNNING VILLA IN A SUPERB LOCATION WITH INCREDIBLE VIEWS
The five of us had a lovely weeks holiday, 13th to the 20th May, in this superb villa with breathtaking views.
Luckily for us we had 26c and sun for 6 days, only 1 day of rain. The location of the villa is excellent but due to the villa being positioned on a hill with very cobbled paths it would not be ideal for people who are not able to move around well. To reach the villa from the small car park you need to walk a short way down a narrow cobbled path. Other than that it was just brilliant with the best views of any villa I have ever stayed in. The photos of the villa speak for themselves or though I would just add a couple of the cobbled path outside just so people are aware. All in all you will not be disappointed, enjoy the views, jacuzzi, sun beds, bbq, outdoor dining, good size bedrooms and kitchen plus new modern bathrooms. The supermarket can be seen from the villa, approx' 10mins walk or 4mins in the car, downhill. Approx' 15mins walk to the lakeside. If we ever went back to Lake Como, this is where we would stay again.
This was the second time we have stayed at this wonderful home, the hosts Romina and Fabio cannot do enough to make you welcome.
From the moment you drive up the hill to see that wonderful view you feel like you have found your own piece of paradise with the amazing view of the lake and mountains. The property is home from home you want for nothing here, the beds are very comfortable and all facilities are top class. The property now benefits from a wonderful hot tub facing the view where you can sit and chill in the evenings.
We will definitely be back and hope to see you both soon!

A Lovely Property with Perfect Views
We couldn't have been more pleased with this property. It maintains it original charm, while updating every amenity for the modern traveler. The bathrooms and kitchens are new and modern. They are well stocked. We used the outdoor charcoal grill and made delicious pork chops. Romina and her husband are excellent hosts, there to answer any questions but never intrusive. We even used the washer and dried the clothing outside in the lovely fresh air. The views are priceless with mountain and lake visible all day long. We stayed in the fall and the area was quiet. Unfortunately we had a large van which had to be parked up the hill and you had to walk down to the villa. It wasn't difficult but less convenient than parking in the villas private parking lot. The vehicle was simply too large to fit through the narrow entryway.
I would certainly recommend the villa to anyone and would gladly stay there again and again. Great job to the renovators and the property managers.
What a house, what a view
Stayed together with my family for a week in this beautiful house. We were six adults and two small children and the house was more than big enough. The house is “old fashion”, modern and very clean and fresh. The house is perfect situated close to the village and have a wonderful view to the lake. We spend most of the time on the terrace and the nice garden with the pool and hours on just enjoying the terrific view. We have rented many nice and beautiful summer houses, but this beats them all. Romina, the owner is welcoming and helpful and did what she could to do our stay easy and relaxed. Can recommend a stay here, we will certainly come back.

Due to its position Domaso offers a wide view over a vast area of Lake Como and is one of the lake villages which best lends itself to tourism; the “Breva” wind which blows from the south attracts yachtsmen and windsurfers from all over Europe. The area offers several nautical centres with schools of windsurfing, water-skiing, kite-surfing, sailing, catamaran and canoeing.

Domaso is a small typical lake town which provides pizzerias, restaurants, supermarkets, bars, ice-cream parlours and shops (1 km).
The historic centre of Domaso is characterized by narrow and enchanting alleyways which, over the centuries, have maintained traits of their past. It is thanks to its temperate climate, its perceptible history and thriving plant-life that Domaso is the ideal holiday destination for visitors in need of relaxation, but at the same time it offers many alternatives for sport-lovers. In addition to traditional water sports close by there are tennis courts and football grounds, gyms and fitness centres. At just 10km from Domaso there is a horse-riding club and at 20 km an 18-hole golf-course.
The mountains and their fantastic trails which surround the village will not pass unnoticed to lovers of trekking and mountain-biking.
By car, hydrofoil, bus or train one can easily get to Como, Lecco and Milan as well as the nearby Valtellina.
