An Early 20th-Century Villa Shares the Shores of Lake Como with a 14th-Century Castle

Built in the shadow of the 14th-century castle that dominates the small village of Santa Maria Rezzonico, this villa for rent on Lake Como captures the enchantment and history of the region and offers up a quieter aspect of the famous destination. 

An Early 20th-Century Villa Shares the Shores of Lake Como with a 14th-Century Castle

Located at the mid-point on the western shores, this villa for rent on Lake Como is settled just below the imposing 14th-century castle that rises protectively over the historic fisherman's village of Santa Maria Rezzonico.

Built in the early 1900s, it was thoroughly restored to bring out the historic character of the turn of the century building and highlight the magnificent views of the lake. Arriving directly from the castle via a cobblestone pedestrian lane, it sits directly above the shoreline

An extra-large, family-friendly retreat, the turn-of-the-century villa affords a complete immersion into the region and unparalleled views of the lake that will remain with you forever.

Laid out in the traditional flow of Italian townhomes, the entry leads into a large living area/salon and dining area where you are immediately struck by the views on show from every window. The kitchen is now a sleek modern 'cucina' fully equipped to whip up amazing meals or have an in-house chef prepare for you. The main terrace is accessible from both the living room and the kitchen for al fresco meals and offers amazing views to the north and central lake area.

The palette is a sophisticated blend of calm neutrals, vintage-inspired furnishings, and a colorful array of original tile, with decor by Persi. Co Style in nearby Lenno.

There is a ground floor en-suite bedroom with twin beds and three additional sleeping spaces on the second floor. The first features the beautiful original wood beam ceilings and structural features with lake views and an en-suite bathroom tucked away to the back.

The en-suite master is bright, airy, and romantic with triple aspect windows and lake views, while the third en suite bedroom overlooks the mountains and gardens of the Rezzonico Castle. There is also a large balcony with views of the lake and the Castle gardens that's perfect for sipping a glass of wine and catching the last rays of the sun.

The attic floor reveals the lovely original features of the villa that have been brought back to life, and has been transformed into the ultimate kid's space, offering the perfect hideaway and play zone. 

There is also a private garden just below the villa and a pathway both into the 'borgo' and down to the pebble covered beach.

COMO'S WESTERN SHORES

For centuries this exclusive enclave has been a celebrated destination for royalty, aristocrats and celebrities to play and enjoy the unparalleled beauty of Italy’s northern lake region. 

Santa Maria Rezzonico sits at the mid-point along the western end of the lake at the base of Mount Bregagno. A small former fishing village, it's an atmospheric and characteristic little village largely undisturbed by high tourist traffic. Tightly clustered above the shore, its narrow cobble stone lanes meander through the archways and colonnades of the town where you'll find quaint cafes, restaurants and a handful of shops all situated around the stunning 14th century Castello Rezzonico.

There's a small pebble beach within a few minutes' walk from the villa which even in high season escapes the crowds.

Based at the foothills of the Alps and offering dramatic scenery of the surrounding mountains and the crystal-clear waters, Lake Como’s iconic character and natural beauty are uniquely atmospheric and impressive. 

Dotted with charming villages and spectacular villas along both legs of the waterfront, the ferries are the best way to take in the many lake vistas and visit the famed towns of Bellagio, Lecco, Tremezzo, and Varenna.
