Villa Diana is located 10 km north of Menaggio (ferry berth) on the northwest shore of Lake Como and sits directly on Lake Como.  This unique setting provides remarkable views of Lake Como and the surrounding peaks and also provides easy access to the lake shore gravel beach.

Villa Diana is a perfect gathering place for groups of friends or family reunions and can accommodate up to 14 guests. There are 5 double bedrooms, 2 single bedrooms, one twin, 6 bathrooms and 2 additional guest toilets (ground floor). Four of the bathrooms have a shower and one has a bathtub with handheld shower attachment.

Villa Diana is just a few steps from Villa Angela, therefore the 2 properties could be rented together for large parties.

On the ground floor there is an additional third bathroom with shower and facilities for handicapped people.  A buoy is now available just in front of the villa.

The rental price is based on 12 guests in 6 bedrooms.  Additional guests up to 14 may be accommodated for an additional per-person fee.  There is parking for four cars. 

Villa Diana enjoys a large furnished panoramic terrace where guests can take in the breathtaking views while relaxing or dining al fresco.  The villa’s brightly decorated interior develops on two levels of 300 square meters each—about 3300 square feet per floor!  French doors open up to the terrace which is 350 square meters (over 3800 square feet) in size.

A pedestrian path runs along the shore between the lake and the property and allows for easy and enjoyable walks.  There is a good pizzeria along this path at about 3 km.  Because this walkway is public, the privacy on the terrace can be limited, especially during July and August.

The villa was a restaurant in a former life so has a large and spacious kitchen for those who love to cook.  For those really on vacation without any desire to cook, a chef can be hired to prepare a typical local meal.  Additionally, a  new private swimming pool (5 X 10 meters) has just been completed.  The pool can be heated on request (it is a pool and not a hot tub).

A simple typical dinner is provided on your arrival night.  This is a welcome sight after a long flight and will allow you to check in, unpack and relax.  Villa Diana provides a buffet welcome dinner on your arrival night.  The villa also will be stocked with basic groceries so that you do not have to shop upon arrival or worry about store closures on Sunday.  The shopping list consists of: milk, coffee, tea, bread, biscuits, sugar, salt, water, fruit, eggs, oil, butter, jam, orange juice, cereals. The quantity of the items will be adjusted by the staff according to the number of guests.

Among them, there is a Venetian gondola from the last century which was built on Lake Como and Mussolini’s own private motorboat.
