Spacious Lake View Villa with Private Pool



Updated: 21-Sep-2016
Villa in Lenno, Lombardia / Lake Como, Italy - Peaceful Location, 10 Minutes Walk to the Lake

For beauty, peace, tranquillity, luxury, rest and relaxation are just some of the adjectives people mention when describing their first visit to the lake. This spacious 5 bedroom, 5 bathroom villa certainly scores well on the luxury theme with 5 bathrooms, fully fitted kitchen, tastefully decorated living room, TV, extensive gardens, private swimming pool - the emphasis here is seeing Lake Como is style. Situated just 5 minutes from the lake, the villa is the perfect retreat to explore the area. Lenno is well served with transportation to all parts of the lake via ferry and bus. Villa balbinello (James Bond) and Lido di Lenno with its golden sandy beach are both situated here in the village. Bellagio, Milan and Switzerland are all close by. However, the laid back style of the Italians will mean you will probably enjoy the experience more sipping a cappuccino along the lake front here in Lenno, sampling one of the home made gelatos, dining out or hiring a boat.

Lovely lenno. Our dream villa!

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic fortnight spent here last summer. We stayed for a week in menaggio and then here however this villa was definitely the pick of the week. The villa is really and very well appointed located in a tranquil area of the lake, nice and spacious set in on grounds with a huge pool and great lake view. Lenno is a hidden gem, with great restaurants, boat hire from Igor at Lido di Lenno, the golden sand beach and the 007 Bond villa. We hired a car but did not use it often as it was only a 10 minute walk down the cafe bar, pizzeria, our favourite restaurant and the supermakert. And best still is Lenno is far less touristy and more of an authentic base to stay as the ferry still reaches the more Americanised Bellagio and Menaggio, popular with Brits. Maurizio was charming and helpful if we needed to contact him during our stay and the booking process with italian apartments very easy and straightforward. We look forward to booking again this summer. Thoroughly recommended!

A patch of heaven on Lake Como

  • 4 of 5

We were a family of 10, ranging from 16 to 79. The photos of the villa don't do it justice - it was far more spacious and interesting architecturally than the pictures indicate. Three rooms with double beds, 2 rooms with two single beds each - all with en suite bathroom. Lots of shady places to sit and eat outside, all bedrooms with walk-in cupboards, shady parking for 3 or more cars,large and pleasing garden, kitchen large enough for us all to have breakfast together, well-kept pool.

Everything was clean and well-maintained and Maurizio the guardian, who looked after the house and the pool, was charming and caring.

Barrie Webb the manager couldn't have been more helpful - organising wine and food to be left in the house for our arrival, recommending restaurants, Igor the water taxi, bike hire and tennis court hire at the Hotel St Giorgio nearby.

Favourite restaurants ranged from El Cris and Il Plinio in Lenno

to La Fagurida, Crotto dei Platani for a special birthday

and Trattoria del Glicine in Cernobbio.

Lenno is in a great position on the Centro Lago boat circuit so it's easy to viisit Bellagio, Varenna and other villages.

The village of Lenno has everything you need - two supermarkets, pharmacy, wine shop, Tuesday market, diy store (for adaptors), lake swimming spot, restaurants, bars, coffee places. 15 minute walk down to village, or there's parking if you drive.

Our only problem was mosquitos - go prepared! Apparently July-early August 2015 was exceptionally hot so when we arrived there were more mozzies than usual.

We would certainly recommend this villa to friends.
