About Karin

Villa Poletti is owned by the same family since late 1800s. We are very happy to share the history and the beauty of this house.

Karin purchased this villa in 1800

Why Karin chose Bellagio

The villa is very elegant and furnished with beautiful antiques. The location is stunning. Close to the small village S.Giovanni where you find all you need and just 3 minutes to downtown Bellagio by car.

What makes this villa unique

The beautiful porch overviewing the lake is magical. As soon as you arrive you find peace, nature and historical beauties. Near the villa depart scenic trails with lovely walks that can take you to the summit of Mount St. First in order to fully appreciate the spectacle of the three branches of Lake Como and the newly discovered caves.

Italian Paradise

  • 5 of 5

We have just spent 1 week in the most idyllic area and most beautiful villa anyone can imagine. Our stay at Villa Poletti was more than we had hoped for. The property is magnificent. Beautifully appointed, private and immaculate. We felt very welcome from the moment we arrived. Monica was at the house to greet us and Karin helped in every way, with any arrangements we needed. She arranged day trips, restaurant reservations and local transportation. The villa is steps away from the quiet village of San Giovanni, where we enjoyed delicious fresh seafood, and within walking distance of the spectacular town of Bellagio, where shopping, restaurants and friendly people abound. The panoramic views of the lake from the villa are breathtaking. We will be going back. Do not miss the opportunity to stay at this amazing place. You will be very happy you did.

Perfect Stay at Villa Poletti

  • 5 of 5

What a fitting way to conclude a 3 week tour of Italy! It was a perfect retreat after weeks of heavy travel--relaxing under lofty ceilings, viewing the beautiful grounds and enjoying amazing lake views. The villa has every modern comfort you could hope for and is impeccably decorated with stunning artwork and antique furnishings. The kitchen is well-equipped, and includes an easy-to-use espresso machine that made great coffee--we loved waking up to the spectacular lake view and having coffee and playing backgammon on the terrace. It is close enough to walk to some local attractions, and a short taxi ride gets you to everything else local. Pay attention to the house recommendations for dining out and getting around--they are spot on! We would feel blessed to make it back here again!

A palace on the Lake!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed (4 of us) at Villa Poletti for three nights in May 2015. This home is more of a mansion with beautiful antique furnishings that were comfortable. We were welcomed by the home's manager, she is delightful, thorough, accommodating, fluent in several languages. The fruit bowl was full and bottle of wine awaited us. The amenities such as the kitchen, satellite TV, WIFI, AC, laundry, and a beautiful setting made this stay wonderful. This was the end of a two week trip, we used this retreat on Lake Como as a restful and refreshing stop before we returned home. The town of Bellagio is walking distance as are many restaurants and shops. The grounds are manicured and peaceful. We cooked breakfasts and a dinner at the home and were never short an appliance or utensil. An added surprise included a fireworks show over Lake Como on our first night. It capped a wonderful vacation...and the view just kept on getting better!

Spotless clean, the old charm with all modern comforts! Amazing setting

  • 5 of 5

I stayed in Villa Poletti for a week. An old beautiful villa with high ceiling, luxury antiques but all the modern commodities. Great kitchen utensils, great espresso machine, fast WIFI, air conditioning, big bathrooms and rooms. The staff was very helpful in anything we needed and a wonderful start up kit caught us by surprise (fruit, wine, water, coffee, pasta, sauce and more) It's awesome to have a laundry room as well. My wife enjoyed that a lot!
