Villa Lugano

This villa is accessed though double iron gates and down a private driveway to the parking area at the rear of the property. The location and setting of the villa is reminiscent of a bygone era and it has retained most of its period features whilst ensuring you have all modern comforts. The generous accommodation is spread over three levels and begins with the spacious entrance hall on the ground floor level. This is truly like stepping into an English country manor house with its huge log fireplace with seating area and a billiard table dominating the space. There is also a small conservatory, perfect for reading in just off this room.

The kitchen is fully equipped with dishwasher, microwave, oven and 5-ring hob and fridge freezer and there is also a small seating area for informal dining - perfect for morning coffee. There is a separate larder opposite the kitchen and a laundry room with washing machine next door.

The generously proportioned lounge with its numerous seating options is located towards the front of the villa and has access through French windows to a terrace with a large table for al fresco dining options whilst gazing upon stunning lake vistas. The formal dining room is next to the lounge and again has terrace access and those stunning lake views. There is a large table to seat 12 and a smaller table for more intimate dining. Also located on this level is the library/games room where you will find the Satellite TV and DVD with comfortable sofas for lounging on whilst being entertained. There are many pictures and books here recording the building of the villa and its development over the years.

From the entrance hall the sweeping, majestic wooden staircase takes you to the first floor level and four of the six bedrooms. There are three generous double rooms on this level and a spacious twin bedroom. Three of the rooms have their own terraces and two of the double rooms have en-suite bathrooms. In total there are four bathrooms located on this level. Another staircase, originally the servants stairs, take you down directly to the kitchen area.

On the upper floor level there are a further two double rooms and another bathroom. All of the double bedrooms can be made up as twin rooms giving you greater flexibility when planning your stay.

The gardens are mature and very well tended by a full-time gardener and there are several levels to explore. Features include a tree house and several ponds and streams. There is also a BBQ with a covered seating area - perfect for al fresco dining. Deer and local wildlife are often sighted within the grounds.

From all floors throughout the villa there are spectacular lake views, be it from the garden and covered terraces, balconies or many windows situated throughout this property. You are not overlooked at all and the gardens are a restful place to relax in the sun with family and friends or a magical place full of adventure for children and the young at heart! It is also the perfect place for a wedding or special event.

Out and about

The port in Menaggio is your gateway to the many gorgeous towns around the lake such as Bellagio, Tremezzo, Varenna, Lenno, Griante Cadenabbia, Argegno and even Como itself. The villa's location and the surrounding areas are perfect for walks in the mountains; the position, views and surroundings are truly gorgeous. The Monte Grona is the mountain that dominates Menaggio and following the road to Plesio you can reach the Rifugio Menaggio with the most stunning views.

The golf club can be reached on foot from the villa or by a short two-minute drive and your host will be pleased to introduce you and book a round for you during your stay. The nearest restaurant can also be reached on foot or a by five-minute drive.

The town of Lugano is only 30 minutes away and is located at one end of Lake Lugano, just across the border into Switzerland. The town centre is a sympathetic pastiche of new and old and is beautifully kept with many old cobbled streets playing host to some of the very finest shops in the region. It’s great all year round and is particularly attractive pre-Christmas when it is decorated in a Dickensian style.

It is easy to spend a day wandering the streets and passages of Lugano, such as the lovely Via Nassa, where you will find fashion (we particularly like the small independent boutiques), jewellery (Cartier have a large store here), antiques and some gorgeous pastry and chocolate shops that are truly mouth watering. The old market too is a culinary delight. After a hard morning’s retail, you can enjoy great food in many of the town’s restaurants and cafes or get something wonderful to take away and sit on the stunning lakeside. Then if you want to amuse the children you can take a small road train around the Lugano shoreline or a ride on the traditional merry-go-round.

For further information on the best places to eat and shop check the Lake Como information tabs on the website. It has everything you need to make sure you enjoy a luxurious stay.
