Outside, the surroundings are truly sublime. The original Villa Capoana which once stood here was constructed in 1605 for the Duke of Mount Marciano.

Mixing the old with the new, the lake view grounds are perfectly at ease against the timeless lake view backdrop.
Aside from the gorgeous communal features the residence is easily located just a short walk from a grocery shop, restaurant and a convenient train station which offers fast links to Lecco city and onwards to Milan, as well as to neighbouring Varenna.
Guests are kindly asked to note that due to its convenient location, road noise is to be expected.
The picturesque resort town of Varenna is easily reachable on foot and its timeless appeal can be enjoyed throughout your stay with enchanting cobbled streets leading to café-lined squares, charming shops, romantic vistas and lakeside restaurants and walks. The famous botanical gardens of Villa Monastero and the medieval Castello di Vezio are both fascinating attractions to explore and the fast ferry service from the town makes the other famous resorts of Bellagio, Cadenabbia and Menaggio all easily accessible from Varenna.
