An historic waterfront property only five minutes’ walk from Como’s central piazza

Villa Gallietta prides itself on being one of Lake Como’s most exclusive and historic luxury properties. Set on the lakefront, the villa boasts a very advantageous location with Como’s central piazza only five minutes’ walk along the lake.

There are very few properties that can rival this stunning property’s opulence and its proximity to the centre of Como. Moreover, the property is privileged to have a back gate that opens out onto the famous “Passeggiata Villa Olmo” on the water and there are only five steps to reach the lake and the boat house.

Surrounded by breath-taking natural scenery, there is a beautiful lakeside garden with a large swimming pool. The picture-perfect backdrop can be admired even while lazing by the pool. The entire garden is flanked by stone walls and high hedges (10ft) in order to provide full privacy.

The property includes a main villa with eight bedrooms, plus a separate three-bedroom apartment, accommodating up to 22 guests in total. For larger groups, additional single beds can be added to some of the main villa’s bedrooms on request.

Filled with impressive original frescoes, the villa is one of the famous “Seven Sisters of Como”. It features frescoes by Italy’s most famous neo-classical artist, Andrea Appiani and was also the subject of a novel written by the French writer Nathalie Comtesse in 1856.

The ground floor welcomes the guests in a grand foyer with a 30-foot fresco ceiling and an elegant spiral marble staircase. On the same level, guests can entertain themselves in the games room or enjoy a good a bottle of wine from the private cellar.

Those who wish to maintain a healthy lifestyle during the vacation will be delighted by the villa’s large gym (1000 square feet), which also contains a yoga/dance studio.

Furthermore, the second floor contains the formidable main formal sala with stunning original frescoes and a mosaic floor that creates an ideal space for hosting special events.

Guests can gather for some quality time in the frescoed living room and in the two dining rooms. The formal dining room boasts renovated frescoes and can seat up to 18 people. The second dining room is more casual, ideal for intimate family get-togethers.

Without doubt, Villa Gallietta guarantees a quintessential holiday in Lake Como where guests can enjoy all the modern conveniences in an historic property.
