Photos and Description of this 5 bedroom holiday villa in Santa Maria Rezzonico - Villa Louise

Fabulous Villa sleeps 9, breathtaking lake views, private garden & swimming pool

Boasting breathtaking views of the central lake to write home about, this striking rustic-style villa (ID 73) offers an exclusive holiday setting for large groups of 9.

From the Rezzonico roadside a private drive leads up to the beautiful villa, which enjoys a sunny and elevated location in which to take in the panoramic lake views. The villa is partly clad in a rustic-style stone facade and is built into the mountainside, to harmoniously blend into the surrounding natural landscape.

Inside families and friends can enjoy a sumptuous and contemporary home ideal for holiday relaxation and enjoyment. The ground floor of the villa is simply made for socialising; with a large open plan living and dining area enhanced by pictures windows and set beneath a striking beamed ceiling. A stylish L-shaped sofa offers the perfect spot to enjoy a movie to the TV and DVD player provided, whilst those looking to enjoy some fine wining and dining have use of an elegant dining area.

Also featuring to the open plan room is a chic and fun fitted kitchen, with glossy red worktops and stunning mountain views to offer the perfect excuse for home cooking during your stay. All the must-have appliances are to hand here, from a gas hob, oven and microwave to a kettle, coffee machine, dishwasher and full size fridge. A breakfast table to the kitchen also serves as the ideal spot for enjoying relaxed morning breakfasts or an informal indoor meal.

Leading outside from the living area, guests will find a large sunny terrace perfect for summertime entertaining, with a lake view dining area overlooking the lake.

The first floor of the villa features 3 beautifully presented bedrooms each furnished with cherry wood beds, double wardrobes, and comprising 2 king size bedrooms and one single bedroom. All are furnished to a high contemporary standard, with a private balcony also featuring to each of the king size bedrooms.

The charming upper loft-style floor enjoys a romantic ski-chalet charm from its sloping beamed ceilings, and comprises 2 further bedrooms. The king size master bedroom to this floor features a beautiful solid brass bed alongside a contemporary en-suite bathroom, for guests comfort. The second bedroom to the upper floor is equally spacious and comprises a twin bedroom furnished with a set of single cherry wood beds with access to a modern en-suite bathroom.

Two further contemporary bathrooms are provided to the sleeping accommodation floors whilst a fourth bathroom to the basement laundry room offers the perfect place in which to shower after a swim.

Outside the balcony featuring to three sides of the villa is complemented by a large covered ground floor terrace to the fourth side. The sunny private garden offers a mesmerising lake view back drop for a peaceful escape away from the nearby central lake attractions. Guests can while away an afternoon with a good book and BBQ lunch in the sunshine, enjoy splashing around to the private outdoor pool or top the day off with an alfresco sunset dinner party.

** Swimming Pool Opening Period from 1st May - 30th September.

The villa features a private garage and offers additional outside parking for 2 more cars. Nestled within the tranquil surroundings of Marena, which is located 310m above sea level in the commune of San Siro (formerly known as Santa Maria Rezzonico), guests are perfectly placed to enjoy the surrounding history and villa attractions alongside the wealth of nearby restaurants, ferry links and leisure pursuits of the central lake.

The nearby centre of Rezzonico offers a timeless idyll in which to relax, with ancient cobbled streets leading past charming townhouses to a striking lake front piazza and a relaxed public beach.

By booking this holiday home you will get free acces to the lido di Menaggio. The Lido di Menaggio has swimming pools, a restaurant, a bar/discotheque, a kids club, boat rentals, a sandy beach, kite surfing and various sportive activities to do.

Rezzonico:

Rezzonico is a really delightful little village with winding narrow cobbled streets in between the ancient houses with their elegant portals and portico's, where fishermen spread out and repair their nets. There are a few restaurants, a small supermarket, bank and a pharmacy. A small market is held on Wednesday, every two weeks, which makes for a great atmosphere. There are many picturesque spots and secluded beaches along the shoreline.

Guestbook comments from the manager

I am sorry it took so long for me to come with my feedback regarding our stay at Villa Louise.



For me was this was a ‘once in a life time’ vacation.

It was a reunion of 9 highschool friends from Indonesia.



Staying at Lake Como is part of our reunion tour.



After a long search at the internet, we chose Villa Louise.

The reality is that Villa Louise is everything as described at the website. It was a beautiful villa, clean and well kept.

The scenery was breath-taking, looking out to the beautiful Lake Como.

The staff were very helpful and reacted adequately and very pleasantly to our needs!



Also, the location of Villa Louise is centrally convenient; from there we made day- trips to Milaan,Torino , Venetie and to Switzerland.



Last but not least, the team of Happy Holiday Homes and the local team was just perfect.

Danillo and his staff are very helpful and the person we called at 01:30 am was also doing his best to help us find the way to the Villa.

Amazing

  • 5 of 5

This is a wonderful, wonderful holiday home. It is bright, airy, modern, clean, quiet, comfortable, spacious (there was ample room for our group of nine, with dining tables big enough for all of us inside the house and also outside on the patio), child-friendly (great swimming pool, game room downstairs); the kitchen is fully equipped, there is an ample supply of linens, towels, etc. But the best part is the views: from all the rooms, the patio, the lawn by the pool, looking east and south over the lake and the soaring mountains rising out of the lake, the views are breathtaking. And then of course there's the whole area to explore: hiking and walking trails, ferries on the lake, Belaggio, Menaggio, Varenna and the other little towns on the lake, shops, fine restaurants (everything from the local pizza parlor in Rezzonico to a Michelin-starred restaurant in Belaggio), gelatto (!), beautiful villas and gardens. We all loved every minute of our week at Villa Louise. It doesn't get any better.

Car: recommended

Located just a 6 minute drive from Menaggio, guests are perfectly placed for making the most of the central lake! The picturesque resort town of Menaggio offers a wide selection of restaurants to savour alongside delicatessens, grocery shops, boutique shop-lined streets and sunny vibrant piazzas, which come alive with locals enjoying a morning cappuccino or evening aperitif. The idyllic lakeside leads northwards to a fantastic family-friendly lido and southwards to a car and passenger ferry service, ideal for reaching the Tremezzina shore, Bellagio and Varenna.

Menaggio and the surrounding central lake offer a wide range of activities, from power boat rental, sailing and windsurfing to hiking, cycling, tennis and golf. Tree-top climbing at the Jungle Raider Park, extreme sports at the Bellagio outdoor sports centre and skiing in Piani di Bobbio and Madesimo all offer more great distractions for thrill-seekers and sports enthusiasts.

Guests can also easily replenish their senses at the nearby Dolce Aqua day Spa in Lenno, after a memorable day of sightseeing in the beautiful villa attractions or in the nearby cities of Como, Milan and Lugano.

Additional Sport & Adventure Activities include:

Bike Rentals, Boat Rentals/Charters, Canoeing/Kayaking, Float Plane/Helicopter, Funicular Railway, Park, Public Transportation, Public Villas & Gardens and Rowing Boats.

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. Green Fees: Weekdays €55, Weekends and Holidays €70 Euros; Golf Cart Rental €36.

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

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 visibility 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 Madesimo and St. Moritz toward the Splugen Pass, which is approx.100km.
