With the picturesque fishing village of Pescallo at your feet and the Rockefeller Foundation's elegant Villa Serbelloni across the valley, Villa Sissi commands stunning views of the entire central lake area. And although it sits in the quiet residential area of Aureggio, Bellagio's creamy gelato, tempting boutiques and traditional trattorias are just a short stroll away. Self-drivers will find a myriad of nearby destinations to explore nearby, or opt instead to crisscross the lake on the convenient ferries departing from the jetty in the center of town. Of course, with the many distractions on the villa property itself enjoying the view from the Jacuzzi, gathering around the terrace table for a feast, catching some rays by the pool or playing foosball on the patio you might just never leave. This chic new property, opened in June 2015, combines sleek contemporary decor with exposed timber ceilings and accent colors to brilliant effect and capitalizes on that indoor/outdoor lifestyle that Italy is famous for. The ground floor has a spacious, light-filled open-plan living, dining and kitchen space with a wall of glass doors that open on to the garden, while the pool area and covered terrace easily accommodate everyone in your party. The two bedrooms on this floor, one with a king bed and the other with twin beds, each have their own shower rooms as well as direct garden access. Upstairs, you'll find three additional en-suite guest rooms, two with king beds and one with twin beds. Competition is bound to be fierce for the bathroom with the lake-view bathtub and the bedroom that has direct access to the furnished terrace with what might be the villa's best view. In the basement, the garage has room for up to four cars, a full-sized bathroom and state-of-the-art laundry facilities. And if you are looking to host an event, hire a personal chef or experience the area's best guides, private boat tours and family-friendly adventures, the destination specialists are just a phone call away.
