A gorgeous apartment in a 200 year old Villa with lake views, period features and pool.

Villa Vecchia Poncetta Carina, a classic Italian villa built in the 17th century on the shores of Lake Como and having been previously owned by Countess Emilia Sommariva, the daughter of Villa Carlotta’s (the famous botanical gardens of Lake Como) owner.

The Sommariva family hosted many famous people in Villa Vecchia Poncetta, including the Arch. Sanquirico Alessandro who spent many months there.

Originally the property included the twin villas and beautiful private park where the Grand Hotel Tremezzo stands today since its construction in 1910. Today the villa is divided into just four separate character apartments that share the gardens and swimming pool with its stunning lake vistas. The interiors of the apartments were designed by the Arch. Alessandro Dubini and are a combination of both old and contemporary styles using sympathetic design and building techniques.

Many of the materials are reclaimed from the restoration including stunning stone staircases and iron work. Much of the original woodwork has been revealed to expose the hand painted reliefs and detail.

Upon entering the villa through its imposing and original wooden doors, the apartment is situated up two short flights of stone steps. The apartment sits facing the lake with its own side balcony from which you enter the apartment.

Through the main door you are immediately aware of the Villa's history and heritage. The hallway mixes new and old and the gorgeous wooden floors and whitewashed walls set the tone for the interior of Villa Vecchia Ponchetta Pietro. A blend of modernity, character and classic elegance.

From the hallway you can access the living space, bathroom and bedroom.

Through a frosted glass door you enter the bathroom which is full of character. There is a large walk in shower unit, WC, bidet and sink unit. The mosaic tiles in the bathroom even contain gold leaf and there are numerous storage options.

Again from the hallway towards the front of the villa, you enter the living space which has two large lake facing windows with views across Lake Como to Bellagio and two windows on the entrance side ensuring the apartment is flooded with natural light. The living space has wooden floors, whitewashed walls and ceiling beams revealed in the restoration, complete with hand painted reliefs. There is seating for four people at a dining table that cleverly folds away when not in use into a wall cupboard and a lovely cream leather sofa that converts into a sofa bed that can sleep up to two adults. There is also a matching armchair for lounging in and watching DVDs on the large flat screen TV with surround sound speakers.

Also in the living space there is a kitchen area with a washing machine, hob, oven and storage - everything you need for those odd nights in.

The bedroom is also well proportioned, with a gorgeous king size bed with memory foam mattress. The large contemporary wardrobe and bedroom furniture work well with the old Italian architecture.

From the external entrance to the apartment there is a stone staircase that leads to the rear gardens and swimming pool. The steps that wind their way up to the rear of the villa may be considered steep so care must be taken. They are not suitable for guests with mobility problems and children should be supervised.

Once at the top of the garden there is a large, very private swimming pool with a wood decked terrace. From the pool and terrace there are stunning views across the lake and to the mountains behind.

Today, the neighbouring Grand Hotel Tremezzo is one of Lake Como's finest hotels and can be enjoyed by non-residents in its bars, restaurants and day spa.

Villa Vecchia Poncetta Carina - sleeping up to four people. Living/dining area with sofa bed, armchair, kitchen area, one bedroom with king size bed, one bathroom with shower, W-fi, gardens, swimming pool. Please be aware there is a charge of €70 for final cleaning payable on arrival. Cots can be hired for €30 per week but guests need to provide their own cot linen. Pool usually open from May to September depending on weather. For larger parties Villa Vechia Poncetta and Villa Vechia Poncetta Carina can be booked at the same time offering greater flexibility and combined outside space.

Out and about:
Being next door to one of the lake's best hotels, the Grand Hotel Tremezzo, you have an array of non-resident facilities to choose from. Whether it's fine dining in the glass fronted restaurant, cocktails in the elegant piano lounge or pampering in the hotel's gorgeous day spa, you have opulence and grandeur just a few metres away!

Walking is both easy and enjoyable around this part of the lake. On your doorstep you be will rewarded with fresh bread and fresh groceries from the gorgeous store by the church in Tremezzo village. Just 20 metres across the road you are by the lake and the local ferry port from which you can travel across the lake to Bellagio, Menaggio or Varenna for example.

The piazzas and streets have wonderful family run cafés and restaurants that are open most days from dawn till late; locals meet on the way to work for a brioche and espresso or after work for a relaxing glass of Prosecco. There is also a good selection of restaurants such as 'Azalea', 'Helvetia', 'Red & White' and 'El Timon' which are just a short stroll away.

Tremezzo is in the centre of the recently opened 'greenways'; these give you clear routes (denoted by beautiful green granite slabs and steel markers) for some of the best walks around the lake. You are also within walking distance to Villa Balbianello (of James Bond fame) and the stunning gardens of Villa Carlotta are virtually next door.

Really loved the appartment and in superb location- excellent advice prior to booking was much appreciated. One issue with damage to lounger that could not be resolved during our stay but this did nit spoil our holiday.
Many thanks
Theresa

Evrything was OK.Thank You for everything dave was very good with us and I will book with him again . Zsolt

If we ever returned to Lake Como, we would definitely stay at this Villa again. Has all the convenience required, and the views were spectacular!!

We both had a fantastic time staying in Tremezzo. The location was ideal for seeing the best parts of the lake as well as Tremezzo itself which had some great places to eat. We thoroughly enjoyed La Daserna and the hilltop restraunt 'Al Veluu'. Thanks again for a great holiday in a wonderful part of Italy.
