Rent ID: #189 Baths: 3 Beds: 2 Sleeps: 6
Sumptuous accommodation in part of a magnificent Liberty-style villa with 21st Century comforts set in a stunning location - live the celebrity lifestyle.


The villa is located in the pretty village of Laglio just 15 minutes from Como town and less than five minutes walk from the lakeside. Laglio has a number of fine villas built largely for the Milanese as summer retreats and Villa Orleandra, which is owned by George Clooney, is only a few hundred metres away; he regularly hosts his celebrity friends here.

In the village there two renowned lakeside restaurants, a small luxury hotel, bars and traditional grocery shops, including an award winning gold-star delicatessen. The local boatyard in the village is one of the oldest in Italy and still makes wooden craft using traditional designs and is still run by the Riva family.

Stunning location and sumptuous accommodation - apartment Villa Castaglioni has it all. When you drive through the electric double iron gates and see the early 19th Century Liberty-style villa in all its splendor you know you are in for a treat. Up the driveway you will find plenty of parking space for several cars and the garden.

The accommodation is comprised of the whole of the raised ground floor and the garden level (lower-ground floor) of the villa - some 286 square metres of living space. The two top floors of the villa are rarely used by their Milanese owners and so you mainly have the grounds all to yourself and thus the privacy of the entire villa. Your journey into the apartment starts through the garden, past the private outdoor jacuzzi to the magnificent stone steps leading up to the terrace which runs the whole length of the front of the villa and wraps around the side too. The terrace has vaulted ceilings and hosts a large dining table to seat up to eight for al-fresco dining whilst enjoying the stunning lake views. Through the large double doors you are now in the apartment proper and what once was the original entrance hall has now been designated the office/library with antique desk, a discreet TV, printer and Skype phone for international and local calls. Through this room you can access the entire property.

Turn left in the marble hallway and you will come to the enormous 80 square metre living and dining room. The furniture is oversized yet elegant in design and compliments the space completely. The sumptuous sofas and arm chairs simply cry out to be sat in and the Teck parquet flooring has underfloor heating. There is also discreet aircon in this room and the windows that run the length of the room let the light flood in - and of course there are the amazing lake views and access to the terrace. The living area also has a large flat screen TV with satellite channels for both Sky and Russian TV and the Bose surround sound system can be played throughout the entire ground floor of the property. The formal circular glass dining table can seat up to eight people comfortably and is perfect for entertaining. This is a truly sophisticated and spacious room complimented by the exquisite furniture, chandeliers and the many windows flooding the area with light and reflecting off the Venetian stucco walls.

From the living/dining room you can directly access the kitchen with its designer units, Alessi utensils and electrical goods, granite work surfaces, double oven, hob, microwave, dishwasher, fridge/freezer and all modern kitchen appliances. There is also a table for a less formal dining option.

Back along the hallway to the other side of the main entrance is the master bedroom suite complete with double designer bed, silk tapestries and hand painted ceilings. This opulence of this room immediately strikes you and you just want to sink into the armchair by the windows and simply gaze out on the greenery of the garden, to which there is access through two French windows. You immediately feel relaxed and calm in this room which also has aircon should the gentle breeze from the lake not be enough. Next to this room are no less than two full-sized bathrooms - one masculine and modern with a Teuco power shower and the other more feminine and perfect for relaxing in the Teuco ultrasonic jacuzzi tub.

From the hallway and through a door you are now in the main marble stairway of the main villa which leads down to the garden level (basement) area. This section of the accommodation is completely separate from the apartment upstairs. Past two comfortable reclining armchairs and along the hallway with floor-to-ceiling storage you enter the area which has a comfortable double sofa bed. Though the furnishings in this area are not as opulent as those upstairs and there are no windows, this space is ideal for teenagers/au-pairs. In this area you will also find a techno gym with weights and a treadmill. On the wall is a large plasma TV from which you can watch Italian TV whilst reclining in bed or alternatively whilst exercising. Next to this area is a fully-equipped laundry room for your convenience and a small kitchenette.

At the end of the hallway and next to the light and modern bathroom with shower, is the twin bedroom with large and inviting American-style twin beds and coordinating furnishings. This room is furnished in a style reminiscent of villas in Florida from where the furniture was acquired. The space is very comfortable, cool and calming and there is direct access through a door to the terrace from here and two half-windows. This room has a contemporary feel yet is still in keeping with the classical surroundings and there is air conditioning for added comfort.

The garden is comprised of the sweeping driveway and established Mediterranean trees around the house. There are evergreen lawns as well as plenty of sheltered areas in which to sit gazing at the lake whilst sheltering from the heat of the sun. And of course you have the terrace at the front of the villa with tables, chairs and sun loungers on which to while away the hours.

This apartment is perfect for two people to enjoy a sumptuous and luxurious stay on Lake Como and discounts may apply when only two people book - please enquire.

Additional services - a housekeeper is included during your stay for up to two hours a day. The provision of a chef, outside catering and transport can also be arranged on request. Unfortunately due to the very high standard of furnishings we do not accept children under 16 years old in this property.

Out and about.


Laglio and the surrounding area is an area of outstanding beauty and as such many will just be happy to walk along the shore of the lake. However, nearby there are watersport opportunities, shopping, golf and a whole host of other sports. There is also a lovely little beach nearby if you fancy a dip in the lake!

You are also within easy distance of Como, Milan, Lugano and many other fantastic places to visit and see. Just 40 minutes away by car takes you to Foxtown for example, just across the Swiss border, a truly enormous designer outlet village with outlets for all the major Italian and international designers including Prada, Dolce and Gabbana, Gucci and Feragamo.

The local restaurants are of an excellent standard, for example 'La Locanda' with its local dishes is just a very short stroll away and who could resist visiting the world famous Villa D'Este and its 5-Star luxury in nearby Cernobbio.

Also, there is a gold-star awarded deli and a small grocery shop within walking distance to ensure you have everything to hand during your stay.
