Villa Lucia is an 18th Century lakeside villa restored to her original artful splendour and decadently furnished to capture all the opulence and elegance of the Italian lakes.

Gracing Lake Como’s western shoreline – Villa Lucia sits on the ‘golden shore’, suitably described for the brilliant sunlight that seeps gently through the Alps onto the calm waters, creating possibly the finest view anywhere on the lake.

Each room is different both in size and decor, with period furniture, paintings and drapes of silk brocade. Reminiscent of the luxury and magnificence of a bygone era, Villa Lucia combines grand yet hospitable, palatial yet comfortable, historic yet contemporary.

Surrounded by lush gardens that offer an array of azaleas, tall stretched cordelines, oleanders, rhododendrons and camellias, reach far beyond the villa that gives way to your own very private breathtaking view of the lake. The gardens at Villa Lucia make for a wonderful dinner ‘al fresco’ or a romantic evening under the starlight, with its terraced area perfect for dining and entertaining.

Villa Lucia’s accommodation offered over two floors sleeps up to 12 guests with five large double bedrooms and four bathrooms. Balconies overlook the lake and neighbouring ‘pearl of the lake’ – Bellagio. There are large reception rooms with doors opening onto the surrounding gardens, fully appointed fitted kitchen and large vestibule hallway to welcome guests.
