Description

Villa Galeazzo is a historic residence that dates back to the 16th century. In the second half of the 18th century it was restored in a baroque style and so it has remained up to the present. The villa is located in Tremezzo on the western shore of Lake Como, in front of Bellaggio, which has inspired countless poetic essays, descriptions and studies since ancient Roman times. The villa is about 15-minutes to Menaggio, 30 to Como and Lecco, an hour and a half from Milan, Varese, and Bergamo. St. Moritz and the Engadine can be reached in less than two hours, Lugano in less than one. It is within a 5 min. walk of the local town and the water taxis can take you to all Lake towns. Nestled between the gentle slopes of the Monti Lariani, Lake Como has a particularly mild climate due to its fortunate geographic position. Words fail to describe this 17th C. lakeside Palazzo. To stay here gives you the opportunity to live and breathe its history. The Palazzo, with its own private mooring and gated steps from the lake, is furnished throughout with antique furniture and art. The 6 bedroom suites have lakeside views and modern bathrooms, but are decorated in keeping with the period. There are stunning gardens, a superb swimming pool and the Palazzo is fully staffed with maid service and private chef. Over the centuries the lake has been an important waterway, with numerous towns springing up along its shores that still today, centuries later, retain all their beauty. In the 1700s and 1800s, the particular combination of these climatic and landscape features induced many aristocratic families to build villas and gardens of great historical importance and rare beauty in the most charming points along the lake, some of which are open to visitors. Villa Galeazzo is comprised of a main body and two lateral wings. Although retaining the original architectural structure and furnishings, the wings have been remodelled according to the law to make six mini-suites and a double bedroom available to guests, all with bathrooms. The top two floors of the central construction are designed for a museum preserving the furniture and objects as the original owners had left them. The ground floor of the central part features a large, luminous double entrance room, a large living room flanked by two small drawing rooms, a dining room and a modern, spacious kitchen. The first and second floors of the central part are used as a museum and contain the apartments, furniture and objects collected by the owners. Guests may use both a formal garden in front of the villa and a large garden in the rear that includes the area set aside for the swimming pool. All bedrooms and the studio enjoy a telephone with direct line to staff (waiters and custodians), TV and Internet connection, safe). The Villa is divided in 3 main areas: Renting Side - This is made up of the whole property, except the top two floors of the central wing (where the Museum is located). Museum - This area is not included in the rental. The first and second floor in the central area is alarmed 24 hours/day. You must ask permission if you desire to visit the owners personal Museum. Custodian house.
