This magnificent villa, along the beautiful shores of Lake Como, sits within a large botanical park characterized by old trees and flowering shrubs. The property, built in 1891 by Cavalier Eugenio Besana, provides the highest level of service and luxury while in the midst of a beautiful and historical space. 

This beautiful estate is located in the town of San Giovanni di Bellagio. It can be easily reached by car and by motorboat. It is located in a quiet and reserved area, only a ten-minute walk (two kilometers) to the town of Bellagio. In addition, the property is located just 30 kilometers to Como, and 70 kilometers to the international airport of Milan-Malpensa and the city of Milan. The area offers ample activities along the lake and in the gorgeous, cultural towns that surround it. In addition, the property itself offers ample activities with a gorgeous, heated outdoor swimming pool, charming gardens, two boat docks, and a lake beach. 

Within the estate, the halls are beautifully decorated with marble from Genoa, Venetian silk wallpaper and oak bookcases while the outdoor areas are characterized by balconies, terraces, and a classical Italian garden. The estate can host up to 20 guests, with ten beautifully decorated bedrooms, all with private bathrooms, with views either of the majestic Lake Como or the beautiful grounds which surround the property. 

At this magnificent estate, guests can enjoy classic luxuries like a private cook, loyal to the villa for 25 years (which is optional), for breakfast service and one meal per day for all guests; modern amenities like satellite television and wifi; all the while in an impeccably designed, historical masterpiece. Guests can also enjoy a cellar of the finest, hand-selected wines. 

To arrive on the private docks of the estate and to walk up the steps to enjoy the marvellous panorama of the majestic Lake Como are the recipe for a dream-like and well-deserved retreat.
