VistaColico2021 Designed in the middle of the twentieth century as a holiday retreat for a very important Milanese family, Vista Colico sits on a gated sloped land of 30,000 sqm (7.4 acres) enjoying the magnificent view of the blue lake with the mountains beyond.  The view, the light and the strong relationship between the interiors and nature are the main features of this dream villa.

Located on Lake Como's northeast shore, Vista Colico, with its glass panes and panoramic views of the surrounding landscape, is designed following the ideas of Ludwig Mies van der Rohe’s modernist architecture style.

As you walk in, you are greeted by the breathtaking lake view that can be seen from every room in the villa. The house focuses on entertainment with a large living and dining area that leads onto the outside panoramic terrace--the perfect setting for outdoor dining and sundowners.  This is the ideal villa for those looking for something really special.

Less is More: Vista Colico is a work of art with wood panelled ceilings, stone floors, clean lines, pure use of colour, and the extension of space around and beyond the interiors. All glass enclosures enclosing the house allow nature and light to envelop the interior space.

NOTE: all the double beds measure 160 x 195 cm, and the singles measure 80 x 195 cm.
The home's decor boasts finest pieces of design furniture, outdoors there are large terraces and relaxing areas, table football, table tennis.

The hot tub and the pool are at the top of the plot so you relax in the water looking over the blue lake. In the garden there are also orchards, a secular birch tree, aromatic herbs. There is also an outdoor dining area with BBQ and beer fridge, as well as a breakfast area. The land follows a path to the lake with cypresses and broadleaf forest.  From the garden the steep path leads to the lake, about 10 - 15 minutes walking. This path is not suitable for people with walking difficulties.

This villa offers our special “arrive and relax” package:  

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.  You will find the dinner in the kitchen with the instructions for heating.  The dinner is also suitable for vegetarian guests.  It basically consists of a pasta al forno, a vegetable tarte, salad, and fruit.  Bread, water and wine are included.  No changes are possible for the first dinner.

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.

Varenna is 14 km (Villa Monastero and Villa Cipressi.) The car ferry operates from Varenna to Bellagio and Menaggio

The Moto Guzzi Museum is located in Mandello at 25 km

A special gem is the nearby abbey of Piona set in a landscape of exceptional beauty on the small Olgiasca peninsula. This is a Cistercian abbey and the natural and homegrown goods produced by the monks are available for purchase. It is also possible to visit the abbey church, which is simple and spiritual. A pleasant country lane leads to the abbey, which can be reached by car in 10 minutes and on foot in about 30 minutes.

Families love this destination as it is perfect for kite surfing, wind surfing and sailing, thanks to the La Breva breeze. This warm breeze from the north blows freshly down the lake. There is a windsurf and kitesurf school in Colico.

If you love the Alps, you can reach Madesimo (approx 50 min drive/59 km), on the road to the Swiss Splügen pass (60 km). It is also possible to visit St. Moritz and the Engadina Valley at 75 km, approximately a 1 hour drive.

Thanks to an efficient lake ferry service you can easily move around the lake. Several boats and hydrofoils travel up the lake from Como to Colico, stopping at most of the towns on the way. The trip between Colico and Como by ferry takes about 90 minutes.

The Italian freeway 36, Lake Como - Spluga (SS 36) passes through Colico and is the main access route from Milan to the Valtellina and the Swiss canton of Grisons. (Colico to Milan is 93 km)

By train in an hour and a half you can reach Milan to visit Leonardo's Last Supper fresco or for an exciting shopping tour.
