Nestled in the foothills of the alps, you’ll discover the fabulous yet serene Lake Como. Mountains sink into the water’s edge, historic and luxury villas are dotted along the lake’s shores, cobbled streets wind their way around picturesque medieval towns and exquisite water-side promenades and terraces boast stunning views. There is no place quite like Lake Como.
Lake Como is one of Italy’s most popular holiday destinations and is second to none when it comes to luxury villas. Shaped like an upside-down Y, Lake Como is extraordinary, surrounded by the Rhaetian Alps and verdant hillsides. This famous lake has been a popular retreat for the rich and famous for centuries, and it is clear why. Boasting stunning scenery, private homes and artistic and cultural gems, there is no place quite like Lake Como.
Known as the ‘Pearl of the Lake’, the village of Bellagio enjoys a magnificent setting on the promontory dividing Lake Como from Lake Lecco. Divided into 22 hamlets, each mirrors a unique aspect of the lake. Abundant with traditional buildings and ancient stone lanes, Bellagio is quaint and hugely popular thanks to its shops stocked with the finest Italian products and produce. Where better to buy local produce before dining at your luxury lakeside villa in Lake Como?
If you are looking for a quieter village to visit, Varenna is a traditional fishing village with waterfront cafes and beautiful gardens, and across the water to the southeast of Bellagio lies the medieval village of Argegno. Here you can hop in a cable car to the mountain village of Pigra, where you will get to enjoy some of the best panoramic views of the lake and the surrounding mountains.
Navigating around Lake Como couldn’t be easier. You can hop on and off any of the brilliantly run ferries (either with your car or on foot) to discover different villages or and discover new shores – adding to the gentle pace of life on the lake. If you are a family with young children, the ferries are an exciting part of each day’s activity.
Our luxury villas in Lake Como cater to every taste and requirement whilst all being unashamedly fabulous. Whether you want modern and contemporary, traditional Italian architecture, lake views or a private location we will be sure to find the perfect Lake Como villa rental for you and your group.

The weather in Lake Como is at its hottest in July and August when it can reach 30°C. Temperatures are warm from March to November yet it can be prone to rain showers off-season. It is a stunning destination for a luxury villa rental any time of the year, as the small villages surrounding the lake each have their own charm and are steeped in history.
