Villa Camilla, located just five kilometers from Menaggio, is a distinguished mid 19th century villa with a noble heritage.  Once occupied by the Marquis of Camilla and still owned by his descendants, this glamorous villa offers spacious private gardens, a swimming pool, a private tennis court, a private dock and particularly superb views of the three branches of Lake Como with striking mountain vistas beyond.  Lake Como is renowned for its luxurious vegetation and its mild climate. 

Check availability

A perfect setting for groups of friends and family, the estate park contains century-old trees and presents an ambiance of ancient grandeur.  Recently restored, the villa boasts a beautiful and elegant interior with great care given to the noble heritage and character of the building.  This is particularly evident in the mosaic floors, remarkable wooden railings connecting the floors, the impressive statues and the 19th century adornments.

Activities nearby:

Before leaving Como, we recommend taking the funivia up to Brunate for a truly spectacular view. From Como, going north along the left shore it's just a short drive to Cernobbio, an old town features a delightful collection of picturesque houses and narrow alleys. This is the site of the fictional Villa Balbianello, the elegant family pensione featured in the film "A Month by the Lake." Nearby is one of the grandest hotels in all Europe, the Villa D'Este, whose rooms resemble museum galleries and whose grounds boast Italy's only "floating swimming pool". Up the road is Toriggia, where you can visit Villa Passalacqua, a late 18th-century home where Vincenzo Bellini once stayed. As you travel north you'll see Como's only island, Isola Comacina (come to see St. John's Day the weekend after June 24th, which is celebrated with a mass in the ruins of the S. Eufemia basilica followed by a costumed procession and night-time fireworks).

Lake Como is renowned for its exquisite villas, the most famous of which is Villa Carlotta, a perfect combination of luxurious interiors (beautiful stuccos, lovely ceiling frescoes and a great art collection, including an Eros and Psyche by Antonio Canova) and luxuriant exteriors (over 500 species of plants, trees and shrubs from all over the world).

Tremezzo is another lovely lakeside town. Tremezzo has a classic lakeside promenade, as well as many wonderful old villas (some of which have been converted to hotels), and it's from here you can take a car ferry over to Bellaggio and Varenna, on the opposite shore.

On the southern shore is Bellaggio, la perla del lago (the pearl of the lake), considered by many to be the most beautiful town in all of Europe. Its narrow cobbled streets, breathtaking views, impeccable homes and glorious villas make it a most enchanting spot to spend your own unforgettable "Month by the Lake.”
