A spacious villa with stunning lake views in the bustling lakeside town of Lenno.
This romantic getaway is located in Lenno, a picturesque village in the central lake area on the northwest side of Lake Como. Lenno has a history dating back to the Romans and is situated in the sheltered Bay of Venus with a charming boulevard, away from the traffic. It has some good restaurants, a beach and beautiful scenery.

Villa Gelsomino is set in an elevated position back from the lake road and is insulated by double-paned windows inside. The villa's clever positioning, lush surroundings and clever landscaping give it a feeling of secluded charm yet it is also conveniently close to the centre of town with all its amenities. The villa was built in the 18th century and has recently been completely renovated. It is furnished with marvelous pieces of classic Italian antiques mixed sympathetically with modern and contemporary pieces. The kitchen and bathrooms have a unique modern Italian design.

The main entrance is located up 15 external stone steps from the main gate and the private garage for two cars. The ground floor features a welcoming hall, a spacious and light-filled living room with fireplace and French doors out onto the terrace and gardens. The large modern kitchen also has a fireplace and is separated by an archway into the adjoining dining room with its many windows looking out onto the gardens - this is the perfect place for lazy breakfasts or more formal dinners. There is also a small bathroom on this level as well as a separate laundry room with washer and dryer for your convenience.

The first floor features one bedroom with a double bed, private terrace and en-suite bathroom with shower. The second bedroom also has a double bed, small lake view balcony and a bathroom with bath tub and shower. Both of these rooms are very spacious and well equipped and are more like suites than just bedrooms.

The upper floor has one bedroom with two single beds and one bedroom with a double bed and lake view. Both of these bedrooms share a spacious bathroom with shower.

Nestled within the grounds behind the villa is a lovely separate cottage which has a spacious living room with wide French doors to the garden, fireplace, sofa bed for a child, a well-equipped eat-in kitchen and doors to a private patio. The cottage has a double bedroom and a bathroom with bath tub and shower.

Villa Gelsomino - Sleeping up to eleven people. The main villa has a ground floor living room, kitchen and dining area and small bathroom. There are four bedrooms in the main villa and three full bathrooms. In the separate cottage there is another bedroom, bathroom, kitchen/dining area and a sofa bed for a child. There is a separate laundry room with washing machine and dryer, lovely landscaped gardens with patios and terraces, outdoor tables, seating and sun loungers. Private garage with parking for two cars. Wifi throughout.

In the nearby village of Cadenabbia about 3km away on the lakefront is a public swimming pool and lido with bar that can be used by Bella Como guests for a small daily charge. In Lenno itself is a lido with beach, lake access and restaurant and bar. In Tremezzo, about 1.5km away, there is also a gorgeous lakeside public park with access for swimming in the lake, fountains and a bar/cafe.


Out and about:
Lenno has it all. A short walk away and you have Emilio’s with tennis, restaurant and bar, and a little further a great Italian supermarket with a deli, butchers and bakers. There is a café five minutes away that not only serves great coffee but is also probably the best cake maker on the lake. Every Sunday the locals arrive at the café for coffee and to buy a treat for after dinner. Lenno also has a great affumicato - a fish smoking shop that is open to the public.

Restaurants in Lenno are excellent too. Ristorante Plinio for example serves hearty Italian home cooking at its best, served under a canopy by the lake. Also nearby is the trendy Lido Di Lenno, a beach bar resort by day and trendy nightspot after dark. Lenno also has Villa Balbianello (of James Bond and Star Wars fame) and a gorgeous bay with a promenade that hosts a fantastic market every Tuesday. The market is renowned for fresh local produce, cheeses and spit roast chicken to take home.

Boat hire is also available from the promenade should you wish to explore the lake from your own boat and Lenno has a ferry point that is just a five minute walk from the villa where the many delights of Lake Como are at your disposal.

Menaggio at 6km away is another charming village with narrow streets, shops, restaurants and boulevard for a leisurely stroll in the evening. The 18-hole golf course is the oldest in Italy (founded in 1912) and is situated on a high plateau above Menaggio and has spectacular views.

The famous Villa d'Este is just 18km south from Lenno with Como town just a couple of kilometres further.
