A lakefront villa with a heated swimming pool, vast gardens, and tastefully minimalist interiors.

Located directly on the shores of Lake Como, Villa Altrove is a one-of-a-kind luxury property for rent. This 18th-century villa has been expertly remodelled and refurbished to offer a beautiful setting for an Italian getaway with loved ones.

The vast, hilly garden dotted with century-old Platanus trees offers plenty of space to relax and socialise whilst taking in panoramic views of the glistening lake with steep mountains beyond. There is an 11-metre heated swimming pool on the lakefront, flanked by sun loungers ideal for a post-swim sunbathing session.

Beside the pool, stairs descend to a small lake basin and a beautiful stone archway opening onto the lake, providing the perfect place for a round of standup paddleboarding.

A large terrace offers a place for guests to savour a morning coffee or evening aperitif on the outdoor lounge setting, whilst watching the sun go down, or enjoy al fresco meals on the lakeside dining table.

For those keeping up with their fitness routine, the garden’s private paths lead to a spacious gym well-equipped with a Technogym treadmill, stepper, and bike, along with a FightCamp set-up.

Guests can also enjoy a private film night in the beautiful 22-seater cinema, which features a unique exposed rock wall with original Moltrasio stone and heating for year-round use.

The villa interiors feature modern and minimalistic design throughout. A soft colour palette with natural materials – such as stone, clay and wood – and carefully-selected furnishings create a homely feel whilst keeping the focus on the unobstructed views of the dramatic landscapes seen from every room.

The light-flooded ground floor of the villa is dedicated to communal areas featuring a large living and dining room, as well as a separate reading room, both with cosy fireplaces and doors opening onto the lakefront terrace.

Completing the ground floor is a kitchen, fully equipped with all the modern appliances needed to prepare delectable feasts. An adjacent social kitchen features a kitchen island with bar stools, a coffee corner, and a wine fridge.

Adding an extra level of luxury, guests also have access to their own private dining room in the neighbouring Insolito restaurant, which belongs to the villa’s owner and serves simple and delicious farm-to-table fare.

From the villa’s ground floor, an original 18th-century staircase (and a lift) leads up to the first and second floors, which are home to five of the seven guest bedrooms. Each room boasts a king-size bed and en-suite bathroom with beautiful Tadelakt plaster walls, a rain shower or luxurious bathtub with lake views, and a separate Japanese toilet.

Guests can unwind in solitude in their spacious bedrooms, or convene for a game of cards in the sunny second-floor library.

Ideal for those looking for more independence, the villa’s top floor is home to an exclusive two-bedroom apartment. It comprises a master bedroom and a small twin room, which share a private living room, an open kitchen corner, and a shower room.

There are no roads leading right to the villa, which adds to the privacy and serenity of the location. The best way to access the property is via the private dock, which can hold up to two boats, allowing for easy exploration of the surrounding areas.

For those looking for an exclusive property right on the shores of Lake Como, Villa Altrove offers privacy, serenity and comfort for a luxury Italian escape.
