    A glamorous place

    This outstanding 19th century villa is set on five acres of private gardens with a swimming pool, a tennis court, superb lake views and a private mooring in front of the villa. The villa faces southeast, halfway up the lake, providing a superb view of the three arms of Lake Como and the beautiful mountains across the lake. The large garden has well-kept lawns, ancient sequoias, cedars, oaks, magnolias and palms. A road runs right along the shore of Lake Como in this area, so the villa is not directly on the lake, but is directly across the road from the lake and across is the private landing. A gate and sweeping lawns lead from the lake road up to the villa.

    The interior of the villa is spacious, with shining floors and a sweeping staircase connecting the floors. Recently restored, Villa Camilla maintains its traditional atmosphere. Each bedroom has its own modern bathroom. It sleeps 16 people; two or eventually four extra beds may be available additionally. Villa Camilla is lovely for large groups and weddings because of its size and romantic setting. It is also great for family reunions and groups of friends. All of the king beds can be separated into twins, making this villa totally flexible for couples or singles in any combination.

    Villa Camilla is an ideal location for relaxing or taking day trips around the lake, into the mountains, southern Switzerland, Como or Milan. Bicycle rentals, motorboat rentals, waterskiing and pitch-and-putt are available in Menaggio, 10 minutes away. Windsurfing is available in Menaggio, Colico and Cremia. In Menaggio you can also catch a boat or hydrofoil to take you up and down the lake between Switzerland and Como, or across to Varenna or Bellagio. There are several golf courses in the area; the closest is just 20 minutes away. Horseback riding facilities also are within 40 minutes.

    Larger groups can rent Villa Camilla with La Dolce (also featured in our portfolio), located on the adjacent property.

    Luxury on Lake Como
    Left on Oct 8, 2017 for a stay in Aug 2017
    Nestled on the edge of Lake Como with everything you could wish for. A warm welcome, an amazing chef, luxurious rooms, great swimming pool, lovely gardens, tennis and your own private jetty to tie up your rental boat. We had the most amazing week here in august, boating around the lake popping into restaurants, visiting Villas and just diving into the surprisingly warm lake. The villa is adorned with wonderful paintings and furniture and is comfortable and homely. We had a fantastic time, thank you to all the staff.

    Dear Bettina,
    I hope you are well. We booked Villa Camilla last year for our sales conference. It was such a success that we have decided to go back to Lake Como! Please let me know what you have available. Thanks and kind regards,
    M. Kemp, March 2009
