About this villa

Villa Cortese is an elegant historical villa located on the shores on Lake Como just a short drive from Bellagio, the Jewel of Lake Como.

The Villa is located on the lake shore and is surrounded by the a beautiful extensive park with elegant swimming pool, overlooked by century-old trees. The friendly, unobtrusive owner has his own residence on the far side of the park and driveway with its own independent parking area and garden; he uses it only at weekends and holidays.

The fantastic location of the property makes it the perfect base for those who wish to explore the lake using either the public ferries or a private boat. It is also ideal for daily trips in the area beyond Lake Como: Lecco, Como, Bergamo, Milan, Lugano are all within an easy 90 minutes drive or less from the property.

Only 2 minutes walk from the villa there is one of the best typical trattorias of the area. Alternatively, guests may request a chef service at the villa.

The villa which dates back to the end of the 19th century offers accommodation on three floors.

Guests can drive up to the main door.

Also on this floor there is the fully equipped kitchen. There are two half bathrooms (toilet and sink only) and one full bathroom with shower that is also used as laundry room with washing machine, dryer and ironing facilities.

For those who prefer eating al fresco, the BBQ is just outside the living area with outside tables overlooking the lake.
