Overview

Only a five-minute stroll from Como's central piazza

Set on the water, yet only a five-minute stroll from Como's central piazza, Villa Galante is one of the most unique and historic luxury villas on Lake Como. The villa dates back to the year 1772, and a three-year renovation project, finished in 2009, restored the villa to its original splendor while adding modern conveniences such as swimming pool, air conditioning, elevator, gym, yoga studio, highspeed internet and more.

Few villas rival Galante's opulence and none offers closer proximity to the center of Como. Whether basking in the luxury of this 12,000 square foot mansion, strolling to the medieval center of Como, or boating from the back yard on one of Europe's most beautiful lakes, Villa Galante is the perfect setting for large families and groups of friends and is especially family-friendly, with a children's suite. Its convenient location in walking distance to the centre of Como, as well as easy access to public transportation, makes Villa Gallante an ideal destination for touring Lake Como without a car. One of the famous "Seven Sisters of Como", La Galante is filled with frescoes (some of which by Andrea Appiani, Italy's most famous neo-classical artist) and is the subject of a novel written in 1856 by French author Nathalie Comtesse.

Staff lives on the property, in a separate residence.
