Charming four-bedroom villa overlooking Lake Como and the mountains, with private pool and lake access
Situated on Lake Como in the village of Lezzeno, Villa Il Gelso offers the ultimate comfort and relaxation. While the location allows for privacy and the opportunity to enjoy the views and surrounding nature, it is also conveniently located near the town of Bellagio, which is just 10 minutes away.
The villa enjoys private beach access and amazing scenery. Guests can take in the views from the garden and the swimming pool, or head to the pebble beach using the private pathway. The terrace and the gazebo are ideal for al fresco dining.
Set across four floors, the villa can sleep up to eight guests. Although it has all the modern amenities, it has preserved its 19th century charm with classic touches like period fireplaces.
On the main floor is the spacious open-plan living and dining rooms, along with a state-of-the-art kitchen equipped with all the amenities needed to cook up a tasty feast. This floor is at lake level and offers direct access to the garden and pool area.
Each of the two upper levels feature one twin bedroom and one king-sized bedroom, all with en-suite or private facilities. Each of the king-size bedrooms has a private sitting room, one of which features a sofa bed to accommodate one additional guest.
Villa Il Gelso is the perfect property for friends and family who wish to explore the beautiful region of Lake Como.
