Overview

About the property

6 Persons, 4 Beds, 3 Bedrooms, 3 Bathrooms

Lake view perfection!

This beautiful luxurious 3 bed ‘villetta’ offers an idyllic retreat for groups of 6-8. Its setting couldn’t be more heavenly, with far reaching views of the central lake that encompasses the beautiful Bellagio Peninsular and the famous Villa Gaeta (featured in the James Bond ‘Casino Royale’ film).

Nestled in the mountainside between Menaggio and Plesio (in the exclusive Parco Dei Cervi [‘The Deer Park’] development), no expense has been spared in making this modern three-storey residence as sumptuous as can be. Designed with art nouveau style influences, the 150sqm interior is also fully-equipped with all the must-have home comforts, including air-conditioning, WIFI, SAT TVs and Blu-ray / DVD players. Under floor heating to the Botticino marble floors also ensures guests stay nice and cosy here in the wintertime too!

The immaculately presented ground floor is adorned with antique pieces and art work, for a truly inviting home-away-from-home. An elegant sitting area provides a restful setting in which to enjoy quality moments together, with a SAT TV and DVD player on hand alongside a period marble art nouveau fireplace. Ambient evenings in can easily be enjoyed here in the colder months, whilst the lake views from the picture window and the direct access out to the covered private terrace make this a wonderful spot for summertime entertaining.

An elegant dining area ideal for 6 under the pretty crystals of a regal chandelier; for a lovely venue in which to enjoy lake view dinner parties and get-togethers.

The covered granite terrace also allows guests to wine and dine the day away, with a stone-built BBQ and alfresco dining area.

A granite-topped U-shaped kitchen is fully-equipped to offer all the must-have appliances for a carefree stay, with its open plan layout and its pair of bar stools ideal for relaxed holiday stays.

An ornate curved staircase leads elegantly down to the lower ground floor of the ‘villetta.’ Here one can easily be accommodated to the luxurious cosiness of a spacious guest bedroom, which is furnished with a double bed and a relaxed sitting area. The sitting area comprises a leather sofa with a 55-inch smart 3D SAT TV. The leather sofa can be easily converted into a double sofa bed, to provide extra accommodation if needed. This room can be used as a twin room if needed. WIFI access can also enjoyed to this floor and a beautifully finished en-suite marble bathroom (walk in shower) is also on hand for guest’s comfort.

Following on from the ground floor sitting room, the elegant curved staircase effortlessly flows to the two bedrooms suites of the first floor. Equally stylish and inviting, the two king size bedrooms both boast breathtaking lake views from a sunny L-shaped 9 x 2m balcony, which is furnished with a bistro table, sitting area and hammock.

Providing a romantic setting from which to enjoy a chilled glass of wine in the evenings, guests can easily walk from the balcony straight into the restful ambience of their elegantly furnished bedroom. The antique pieces add a touch of refinement to each room whilst a luxury marble fitted ensuite bathroom (walk in shower) complements one bedroom and an ensuite contemporary fitted marble bathroom (bath tub) to the other. Both first floor bedroom suites offer the additional comfort of air conditioning, from a state-of-the-art silent Mitsubishi unit.

The luxury holiday retreat further features a safe, laundry facilities and 2 private garages.

A large outdoor swimming pool (open from 15th May – 30th September and shared with 2 other villas) offers the perfect excuse to unwind in the sun, whilst the private garden of the property offers a tranquil haven in which to relax and enjoy memorable alfresco meals.

Mainly laid to lawn, the garden offers fragrant jasmine and lively shrubs alongside an ornamental bridge, a set of sun loungers and some comfortable garden benches to relax on.

From its picture-perfect spot nestled on Menaggio’s mountainside [7 minutes by car from Menaggio’s lakefront], guests are perfectly placed for reaching the tennis and golf as well as the modern day amenities, restaurants, family-friendly Lido and the ferry service provided in pretty Menaggio.

As well as offering easy access to the Milan airports, Lake Lugano and the Italian Alps ski resorts, the central lake offers a treasure trove of fun; with water sports, hiking, boat rental, horse riding, spa days, extreme sports and much more to enjoy!

Guestbook comments from the owner

This is the best way for me to describe staying at Le Petit Palais Villa -- This was the best vacation ever for my wife and me and a large part of that was due to staying in this villa with its breathtaking views of Lake Como. During our two week visit, we toured many of the beautiful cities and towns on the lake but at the end of the day, we were very happy that we selected Menaggio and the villa as our home base. It was a great place to come back to after long and short day-trips to surrounding cities and venues where we enjoyed walking through some of the finest gardens we have ever viewed. We ate at most of the restaurants in Menaggio and enjoyed the hospitality and ambiance of all of them. This was an experience that we may never match in our life times.



Our trip to the lake region was made even more enjoyable when dealing with your friendly and very helpful staff. We interacted mostly with George, Danilo, and the young woman (behind the counter) whose name unfortunately escapes me. They were always accommodating to us and we especially valued their tips on where to dine, what to see, and how to get around.



I am so glad that we picked this villa and the city of Menaggio for our one-of-a-kind vacation.

Golf:

There are Golf clubs around Lake Como: The Menaggio & Cadenabbia Golf Club is Italy's oldest golf course. Established in 1907 with 18 holes Par 70, it is located above Menaggio near Croce, in Grandola ed Uniti, approx. 20 min. by car.

Restaurant Golf at the club serves fantastic food and is well recommended.. Guests are always welcome, please call beforehand to check course rules. Golf Club Menaggio: (Menaggio Como).

Skiing:

This beautiful lake region of Italy is not the best for skiing as you may imagine, despite its scenery, crisp air and near perfect visibilty and mountains capped in winter snow. It does however have Skiing opportunities at local resorts for a day out.

There is a small ski area on Mt. Lema, not more than 10 km from Lugano, but you have to be lucky to have enough snow for skiing. In Ticino, the local Swiss Canton, the best places to ski are probably either San Bernardino (south of the pass of the same name) or Airolo (south of Gotthard pass). Both are reachable in about 1 hour by car across the Swiss border.

There are direct trains to Airolo as well from Lugano and hence from Italian Stations. To S. Bernardino there is only a bus connection. For more snow try Andermatt (on the north side of Gotthard pass) which has normally good snow conditions and a good choice of runs.

The closest major ski resorts are St. Moritz and Madesimo toward the Splugen Pass which is approx.100km.
