Italian National Monument Available for Rent at Lake Como
Bridgewater Travel has launched their new luxury programme of Italian holidays. Amongst the catalogue of what are described as “the finest Italian accommodation in the most exclusive locations,” is the Villa Vista sul Lago on Italy’s majestic Lake Como.
Como is widely regarded as Italy’s most beautiful lake and one of the world’s most glamorous locations. It has been popular with the wealth and aristocracy since Roman times. Today, the likes of Madonna, George Clooney and Sylvester Stallone own villas in the area.
Lake Como’s natural beauty has enthralled Hollywood. Ocean’s Twelve, Casino Royale and Star Wars Episode II: Attack of the Clones are just some of the major movies to have had scenes filmed by the lake.
An elegant and historic retreat, the Villa Vista sul Lago benefits from magnificent lake views, a beautiful private swimming pool and formal Italian gardens (considered to be the most beautiful on Lake Como). It is one of Italy’s national monuments. Built in the 1700s by a famous Count who was granted the property by a northern Papal family, many famous residents have passed through its doors, including some of Italy’s most renowned opera writers.
The Swiss architect Felice Soave designed the house to have a simple symmetrical façade with a richly elaborate interior. The ceilings on the public rooms as well as in the bedrooms are ornately decorated and painted. The floors are a beautiful mixture of Cotto from Lombardy, Seminato and dark antique wood. The villa is filled with beautiful paintings, sculptures, rugs, tapestries and Venetian chandeliers.
There are eight master bedrooms in the villa, all unique and beautiful. Each boasts a high, carved ceiling, an antique floor and spectacular bathroom. Some of the bathrooms have Philippe Starck designed wash basins, bathtubs and showers, while others have large, antique French and English trough bathtubs and ornate wash basins.
Bridgewater also points out the suitability of the Villa for family holidays. There is a wonderful outdoor play area with a beautiful wooden slide, swing set and rope climb set in the back garden, next to the kitchen. There is also a large children’s playroom on the first floor next to the music room and a small children’s play room next to the kitchen.
Based on the 17 bedrooms being fully occupied, the Villa can be your private residence for under £3000 per person per week.
So what are you waiting for? Your palace on the shores of Lake Como awaits. Chef, maid and full concierge service are available. Contact Bridgewater Travel now; no request is too big or small!
