The Villa

This villa is set in the hillside just above Menaggio, high enough to benefit from the seclusion of a private road but close enough to walk into the town centre in less than 20 minutes.

The unspoiled view of the lake is a full 180 degrees taking in Villa Gaeta (which featured in the James Bond film ‘Casino Royale’) on one side and all the way over to Bellagio on the other.

The villa has extensive outdoor lounging and eating areas. There are 3 terraces, the main one being around 100sq meters in size. Due to its prominent position, the villa enjoys the sun from around 7 am until early evening.

This detached villa is arranged over 4 floors with an elevator connecting them. The first floor is designed as a fully contained 2 bedroom apartment which makes the accommodation particularly flexible and offers added privacy if required, for example when two families or friends are holidaying together.

In the evening the lights from Bellano, Varenna and Bellagio along with numerous other mountain villages on the other side of the lake create a dramatic backdrop for dining on the terrace.

The villa is accessed by a gated tunnel which leads to the private garage with automated doors. The ground floor has a laundry and utility area and a lift that services all 4 floors.

From the elevator on the first floor, you will be welcomed by a modern, luxurious and very light open-plan living and kitchen area, with beautiful lake views and doors to the main terrace. There are two double bedrooms on this floor, one of which has direct access to the main terrace and full views over the lake. There is also a bathroom with bath and overhead shower.

On the second floor, the kitchen is fully furnished and provides all the necessary gadgets. The central island with built in Teppanyaki grill and seating is perfect for entertaining. The chic dining area can seat a party of 8 and the living area offers comfortable sofas, flat screen TV with Sky, and wall-mounted Bang & Olufsen CD player. There are three glass doors along one side of the room which looks directly over the lake and leads to a balcony which runs the full length of the house. There is another sliding door which leads to the villa’s sunny terrace, which offers comfortable outdoor dining for up to 8 as well as panoramic lake and mountain views. This floor also provides a modern and stylish toilet.

Accommodation above is made up of a double bedroom and the Master suite which comprises a generously proportioned walk-in wardrobe which includes a fridge, a large high ceiling sleeping area with views over the lake and access to a sunny terrace. There is also a bathroom with a large shower.

The second bedroom also has views over the lake and a series of very spacious wardrobes. A finely furnished bathroom with bathtub and overhead shower is also located here.

Outside, you can also enjoy the shared swimming pool with stunning lake views. The swimming pool is open from 1 June to 30 September.

The Area

There are two pizzerias which are less than a 10-minute walk from the villa and the area also includes tennis courts and a golf course plus numerous scenic walks.

Menaggio is a picturesque lakeside town with easy access by car and passenger ferry to Varenna and Bellagio as well. The town itself boasts a wide selection of supermarkets, delicatessens, boutique shops, cafes and restaurants which line its charming piazzas.

The lakefront promenade enjoys outstanding lake views and is the perfect spot for enjoying a walk or an Italian ice cream. The family-friendly Lido di Menaggio also provides guests with a relaxed day of swimming, sunbathing and volleyball as well as delicious pizzas and a stylish outdoor lakefront cocktail bar which comes alive as dusk sets.

Evening aperitifs can be enjoyed in one of the many authentic Lake Como bars during your stay, as well as at the stylish ‘Aqua Cheta’ Boathouse bar and famous wine cellar bar of ‘La Cantina Follie’ which are both to be found in Tremezzo.

Dining out on Lake Como is a pure delight with a vast range of options to choose from, including family-friendly pizzerias, the renowned hillside Agroturismos and the elegant and romantic lakefront restaurants which are dotted along the Tremezzina shore all the way southwards, to Como city.

What guests say about Villa Panoramica …

“We had a wonderful time. I particularly liked watching the sunrise and sunset over the mountains. Our daughter loved Jungle Raiders. It would be helpful to say which restaurants are within walking distance. Chez Mario and La Vecchia Magnolia were both excellent, as was the home cooking service.” August 2016 Peter, UK

“We very much enjoyed our stay at Villa Panoramica, the villa was well located and had good facilities.
The team at happy holidays were very customer focused, cheerful and helpful particularly when we needed help with transportation around extending our stay in Menaggio. We would certainly use happy holidays when we next visit Lake Como area. Thanks for your help,” August 2016 – Lug, UK

“We enjoyed the villa! Our favorite restaurant was La Baita. We also liked Barcola. Did not have a bad meal out. We liked Ristorante La Madonnina in Domaso as well. Thanks for your service. Once we found the office and new where to park, things turned out well. The boat rental is well worth it.” May 2014 – Ross, USA
