Lake Como, Lombardy
Nestled within a lush, manicured garden in the tranquil fishing village of Lezzeno, Villa Il Gelso is characterised by its charm and exclusivity. A classic early 20th-century palace on the outside, but with all the comforts of modernity within, this splendid villa sits right on the very edge of Lake Como and boasts breathtaking views across its glistening waters. Elegant and stylish, the contemporary interiors of Villa Il Gelso feature plush leather sofas and a wide variety of beautiful artwork, while also integrating elements from the original home, such as the gorgeous fireplaces. Step out through glass doors onto the verdant, sun-soaked lawns; it’s easy to while away a balmy afternoon in these glorious outdoor areas. Swim lengths of the gorgeous pool, recline on a sun lounger or enjoy a delectable al fresco dinner under the vine-covered pergola. The private pebble beach is the perfect spot to admire the views across the lake and out towards the twinkling lights of the town beyond. Of course, should you wish to venture out, the world is your oyster – tuck into lunch at a mountain cottage, peruse the boutiques of Bellagio or go cruising across the lake, as you please. The four lovely bedrooms each come complete with an ensuite bathroom, making Villa Il Gelso ideal for families or groups of friends yearning for the pure serenity of Lake Como. With a cot, highchair and babysitting services all available should you request them, this villa is especially well suited to those with young children.
