This villa is located close to the heart of Civenna, a small town just 6km from Bellagio. The location of the villa is perfect: as its name suggests, it offers wonderful views of the Lecco branch of Lake Como and the Grigna mountain range. A stay here will allow you to experience an elegant Italian home in a typical town, where you can walk to the local restaurants, post office, general store, and pastry shop.
The close proximity to the lake gives easy access to the public boats that link the many towns on Lake Como, yet you have the advantage also of the villa’s elevated position to enjoy enviable views; and in the hot summer months the temperature is usually at least 2°C cooler than in Civenna, refreshing the night air for a comfortable night’s sleep. Within half an hour’s drive lie the towns of Magreglio and Barni, with their good choice of restaurants; Bellagio, one of Lake Como’s most beautiful towns; and Limonta, Lecco and Onno.
In one hour one can reach Como, the principal city of the lake and the province; Milan and Bergamo lie another 30 minutes beyond.
The villa is surrounded by a beautiful garden, shaded by century-old trees. Its glorious pool (11 x 6 m), accessed by steps from the garden, has been built in infinity style, with magnificent views of the lake. It is equipped with six sun loungers and a shower. The villa is modern but built in traditional style, with wooden ceilings and exposed stone walls, and picture windows to make full advantage of the views. The rooms throughout have been elegantly and comfortably furnished, mixing antique and modern.
The main entrance to the villa leads into a two-storey open space with a balcony, offering a view to the living room. Stairs lead down to the ground floor, where there is a dining room, seating eight, and a well-equipped kitchen, with a table for four. Behind the kitchen is a storeroom with a washing machine, dishwasher and fridge-freezer. Between the kitchen and the dining room there is access to an outdoor area with a stone table (seating eight) – ideal for having a barbecue while enjoying the wonderful views.
Inside, on the left of the dining room, is the living room with two comfortable sofas, and more lake views. The glass doors provide access to a 25m terrace furnished with two wooden benches and two wooden sun loungers. There is also a second living room with sofas and armchairs, and an adjacent shower-room, with a basin and WC. There is access to the garden and pool from here. The garden also has an additional outdoor table, seating four. A staircase on the ground floor leads up to the first floor, with two double bedrooms and a bedroom with twin beds; all have lake views. One of the double bedrooms has an en-suite bathroom, and there are two additional bathrooms located on this floor.
