Villa Margherita Grande - Wonderful Property With Lake, Gardens & More

Overview

Property

Updated: 02-Dec-2016
Spacious property to sleep 4 in Cadenabbia with spectacular lake views

A wonderful refined property with Lake, Gardens and more!

The grand Villa Margherita dates back to the 1750’s and is in fact where the famous Italian composer Giuseppe Verdi stayed and composed ‘La Traviata.’ The villa enjoys a prime central lake position along the desirable western shore making it ideally placed for guests who wish to explore the many attractions and pretty towns on Lake Como!

The villa’s well maintained grounds include a lakefront area with resident beach, boat mooring facility, children’s play area and a resident parking facility. Once guests have parked here an arched stone tunnel leads guests safely under the lake road out into the principal Villa grounds, which enjoys a sunny lake view position in a mature and serene landscaped setting.

The spacious two bedroom property is situated on the second floor of the period Villa and the accommodation is distinctive, elegant, modern and inviting with a bright and well proportioned lake view sitting room which features three comfortable sofas, a TV, dining area and a wonderful view of the Bellagio peninsular. The owner’s own tasteful and eccentric flair can be enjoyed in the property and can be seen in the original art pieces, antique furniture and modernist touches; the style being Italian distinctly works and provides both a restful and vibrant atmosphere for guests to enjoy.

A modern fully fitted kitchen with dining area provides all the desired appliances for a self-catering holiday and also enjoys a wonderful view of the lake which is perfect whilst preparing food.

The principal lake view master bedroom is beautifully furnished with antique pieces, floor to ceiling lake view windows and includes modern touches such as a flat screen TV for guests’ entertainment. From the master bedroom French doors open out onto a fabulous sunny lake view balcony terrace. An Alfresco dining set features and makes for the perfect dinner party venue, overlooking the villa’s romantic gardens and the breathtaking Lake Como with picturesque views towards Bellagio and the pretty resort town of Varenna on the eastern lakeshore.

A second spacious twin bedroom with stylish bamboo single beds and a bright and open atmosphere also features and is ideal for guests.

A contemporary newly fitted bathroom with bath tub and a second modern rustic style shower room are also situated in the property.

Guests are able to enjoy the splendid resident landscaped gardens of the villa which feature specimen trees and spectacular flower displays and are ideal for walking and relaxing in.

From the villa local restaurants can be reached along the road by foot, and conveniently by car in a matter of minutes guests will reach the famous Villa Carlotta, Tremezzo cafes, bars, restaurants and lakeside park, the Cadenabbia car and passenger ferry, the famous Villa Balbianello and the picturesque resort town of Menaggio with boutique shops, Lido beach and swimming pools and charming piazzas. The pretty hillside heart of Griante should be explored and there are many fine walks to enjoy from here, to the St Martino church with its incredible lake views for example.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Our stay at Lake Como was wonderful and what a great backdrop of the landscape of the area. Overall the place is great and it was a treat to get to stay in this grand villa on the shores of Lake Como. Spacious and well appointed 2 bedroom apartment on 2nd floor with a lovely terrace overlooking the Lake. Perfect place for breakfast or late afternoon cocktails. Eclectic furnishings which were lovely.

Golf:

There are Golf clubs around Lake Como: The Menaggio & Cadenabbia Golf Club is Italy's oldest golf course. Established in 1907 with 18 holes Par 70, it is located above Menaggio near Croce, in Grandola ed Uniti, approx. 20 min. by car. Green Fees: Weekdays €55, Weekends and Holidays €70 Euros; Golf Cart Rental €36.

Restaurant Golf at the club serves fantastic food and is well recommended.. Guests are always welcome, please call beforehand to check course rules. Golf Club Menaggio: (Menaggio Como).

Skiing:

This beautiful lake region of Italy is not the best for skiing as you may imagine, despite its scenery, crisp air and near perfect visibilty and mountains capped in winter snow. It does however have Skiing opportunities at local resorts for a day out.

There is a small ski area on Mt. Lema, not more than 10 km from Lugano, but you have to be lucky to have enough snow for skiing. In Ticino, the local Swiss Canton, the best places to ski are probably either San Bernardino (south of the pass of the same name) or Airolo (south of Gotthard pass). Both are reachable in about 1 hour by car across the Swiss border.

There are direct trains to Airolo as well from Lugano and hence from Italian Stations. To S. Bernardino there is only a bus connection. For more snow try Andermatt (on the north side of Gotthard pass) which has normally good snow conditions and a good choice of runs.

The closest major ski resorts are Madesimo and St. Moritz toward the Splugen Pass, which is approx.100km.
