From the Rezzonico roadside a private drive leads up to the beautiful villa, which enjoys a sunny and elevated location in which to take in the panoramic lake views. The villa is partly clad in a rustic-style stone facade and is built into the mountainside, to harmoniously blend into the surrounding natural landscape.
Inside families and friends can enjoy a sumptuous and contemporary home ideal for holiday relaxation and enjoyment. The ground floor of the villa is simply made for socialising; with a large open plan living and dining area enhanced by pictures windows and set beneath a striking beamed ceiling.

Nestled within the tranquil surroundings of Marena, which is located 310m above sea level in the commune of San Siro (formerly known as Santa Maria Rezzonico), guests are perfectly placed to enjoy the surrounding history and villa attractions alongside the wealth of nearby restaurants, ferry links and leisure pursuits of the central lake.
The nearby centre of Rezzonico offers a timeless idyll in which to relax, with ancient cobbled streets leading past charming townhouses to a striking lake front piazza and a relaxed public beach.

Guests can also easily replenish their senses at the nearby Dolce Aqua day Spa in Lenno, after a memorable day of sightseeing in the beautiful villa attractions or in the nearby cities of Como, Milan and Lugano.
I am sorry it took so long for me to come with my feedback regarding our stay at Villa Louise.
For me was this was a ‘once in a life time’ vacation.
It was a reunion of 9 highschool friends from Indonesia.
Staying at Lake Como is part of our reunion tour.
After a long search at the internet, we chose Villa Louise.
The reality is that Villa Louise is everything as described at the website. It was a beautiful villa, clean and well kept.
The scenery was breath-taking, looking out to the beautiful Lake Como.
The staff were very helpful and reacted adequately and very pleasantly to our needs!
Also, the location of Villa Louise is centrally convenient; from there we made day- trips to Milaan,Torino , Venetie and to Switzerland.
Last but not least, the team of Happy Holiday Homes and the local team was just perfect.
Danillo and his staff are very helpful and the person we called at 01:30 am was also doing his best to help us find the way to the Villa.
This is a wonderful, wonderful holiday home. It is bright, airy, modern, clean, quiet, comfortable, spacious (there was ample room for our group of nine, with dining tables big enough for all of us inside the house and also outside on the patio), child-friendly (great swimming pool, game room downstairs); the kitchen is fully equipped, there is an ample supply of linens, towels, etc. But the best part is the views: from all the rooms, the patio, the lawn by the pool, looking east and south over the lake and the soaring mountains rising out of the lake, the views are breathtaking. And then of course there's the whole area to explore: hiking and walking trails, ferries on the lake, Belaggio, Menaggio, Varenna and the other little towns on the lake, shops, fine restaurants (everything from the local pizza parlor in Rezzonico to a Michelin-starred restaurant in Belaggio), gelatto (!), beautiful villas and gardens. We all loved every minute of our week at Villa Louise. It doesn't get any better.
