VILLA COMTESSE Lake Como, Lombardy, Italy

EUR 16100

PROPERTY Description

Take a short, lakeside stroll from Como's central piazza and you arrive at Villa Comtesse, a unique historic villa with a beautiful story to tell.  Built in 1772, its three year renovation was completed in 2009, bringing back once again the artful splendor of its time in centuries past.

One of the famed "Seven Sisters of Como", this villa is filled with lovely frescoes by acclaimed artists including Andrea Appiani, Italy's most famous neo-classical artist.  It is the setting of a novel written in 1856 by French author Nathalie Comtesse.

This villa offers our special ¡°arrive and relax¡± package:  

A simple typical dinner is provided on your arrival night.  This is a welcome sight after a long flight and will allow you to check in, unpack and relax.  You will find the dinner in the kitchen with the instructions for heating.  The dinner is also suitable for vegetarian guests.  It basically consists of a pasta al forno, a vegetable tarte, salad, and fruit.  Bread, water and wine are included.  No changes are possible for the first dinner. 

The villa also will be stocked with basic groceries so that you do not have to shop upon arrival or worry about store closures on Sunday.  The shopping list consists of: milk, coffee, tea, bread, biscuits, sugar, salt, water, fruit, eggs, oil, butter, jam, orange juice, cereals. The quantity of the items will be adjusted by the staff according to the number of guests.

While preserving the historical character of the villa, the owner has also added modern amenities including a swimming pool, air conditioning, elevator, full gym, yoga studio, high speed Internet and much more.  The villa staff lives in a separate residence.

Villa Comtesse offers an experience of opulence and convenient proximity to the the historic town of Como.  Spend your time enjoying the luxury of this 12,000 square foot mansion, walk to Como's center, or boat from the villa's easy access to Lake Como and indulge in a boat trip to the lake's most desired destinations.
