Villa Suisse is a villa rental on Lake Como that dates back to the beginning of the century and still belongs to the noble Swiss family that came on holiday here, fell in love with the area and decided to build their dream Lake Como luxury villa. Villa Suisse has been carefully restored in 2008. The owners tastefully furnished and embellished their home, retaining many of its original characteristics and balancing them harmoniously with modern comforts. Fine tapestries and fabrics, floors made from fine wood with geometric inlays, beautiful paintings on the walls, and family period furnishing are combined with a modern and fully equipped kitchen, WIFI Internet connection, Plasma TV with satellite, and much more. The villa looks directly onto the lake and is set in a beautiful garden. Its location, (a few kilometres from Cernobbio and only seven km from the center of Como, plus easy access to ferries and buses), makes Villa Suisse an ideal destination for both those seeking a vacation destination and those on business.
Villa Suisse's large terrace (70 sqm) opens directly on the lake and provides a delightful venue where you can relax, enjoy the view, or sunbathe in full privacy. If you prefer swimming, lake access is just a few meters away. Or you can use the private heated pool which will be completed by the end of April 2014.
From the villa's private dock, guests can use a rental boat or water-taxi to visit the charming villages of Lake Como, Menaggio Bellagio, and Tremezzo.
Starting in 2014: 2 motor boats will be available:
1) 5.50 meters; 40 hp, 6 pax, no license is required to drive it. Inquire about price.
2) New boat: 6.50 meters; 150 hp, 8 pax. International driving license is required. Inquire about price.
