Overlooking Lake Como on the site of a former medieval watchtower, Villa Alta commands one of the finest views in Europe. Built in 1909, the villa has been fully restored to exceptional standards, offering 1,231 square meters of living space. It can accommodate 14 people in 8 air conditioned bedrooms over 5 levels connected with an elevator. A stay at the villa will be most comfortable and luxurious stay with lots of amenities to keep you pampered during the week including: the services of a chef, daily housekeeping and a villa manager.
Entering the main floor through the elegant hall you’ll find the living room with open fire place and grand piano, a cozy TV room, fully equipped kitchen and dining room leading out to the terrace.
On the lower floor with impressive large windows overlooking the lake is the gym and wellness area with various fitness equipment and steam room and shower. On the basement floor is also the laundry room and the independent caretaker’s apartment.
On the first floor are 3 double bedrooms with balconies and 2 bathrooms.
On the second floor are 4 double bedrooms and 3 bathrooms. The last attic floor features a double bedroom with en suite bathroom, and a large open space and entertainment area: TV, projector, music system, board games, pool table, kitchenette and toilet. Two roof terraces providing glorious views over the lake are accessed from this area. One of these boasts an attractive island bar and raised viewing platform. The perfect place for enjoying a day’s end sundowner.
Outside around the front of villa is a huge terrace overlooking the lake with chairs and sofas and table for outdoor dining. Next to the villa in the green garden is the long (22m) heated infinity pool with jacuzzi, providing picture-perfect views over the lake. There is also a pool house with a kitchen, island bar and seating area. Children will have a blast in the playground in the woods offering a treehouse, trampoline, Tibetan bridges, zip line and slide. Mountain bikes are available to explore the nearby landscapes.
Villa Alta enjoys a unique position lying on top of a hill and sits in a park of 4.5 acres offering the peace and tranquility that is so difficult to find on Lake Como. The villa has its own luxury boat (max 9 person capacity) with its own captain allowing you to travel in comfort, to your own timetable and directly to where you want to go (particularly useful to access some of the lovely lakeside restaurants). It is also the perfect boat for water sports!
At 881 meters above the lake and with no immediate neighbors, the villa is an oasis of calm. Yet the pretty perched mountain village of Pigra is only 300 meters away and the popular lakeside village of Argegno can be reached from the cable car station located 500 meters from the villa gates – a 5 minutes scenic lift ride down to the lake. Driving down to the lake is 14 km (taking about 25 minutes) but a taxi service can be arranged for your convenience.
Villa Alta has it all.
