Description

Villa Du Lac

Location and Surrounding Area

Located on the western shore of Lake Como, just a short drive from the town of Tremezzo, one of the most romantic places on the lake, this unique contemporary villa and former industrial boatyard is the perfect place for a stylish Italian break by the lake that inspired composers, artists and poets. Set in the shadow of the snow-covered Rhaetian Alps and hemmed in on both sides by steep, verdant hillsides, Lake Como is probably the most spectacular of the three major lakes.

The villa is just a stone’s throw from Menaggio, the most important center of the western coast of Lake Como. Thanks to its central position, Menaggio is the ideal starting point for any type of excursion: by boat, you can access the sumptuous villas of the lake, while on foot or by mountain bike you can discover the paths of Parco Val Sanagra. Golf lovers can enjoy an exclusive 18-hole course founded in 1907, and those who prefer sports can rent a kayak while enjoying the outstanding views of the surrounding nature.

Reachable by boat, Bellagio is located at the top of the so-called Lariano Triangle. Bellagio represents one of the most famous and elegant towns of Lake Como, and is extremely well-known for its beautiful villas and gardens, mild climate and naturalistic-environmental characteristics of great charm. Situated in Varenna and surrounded by a spectacular botanical garden, Villa Monastero is one of the most interesting examples of Eclecticism around Lake Como.

The villa is just a stone’s throw from Villa Carlotta. Built at the close of the 17th century, Villa Carlotta was enriched by valuable works of art, including incredible sculptures by Antonio Canova, still on display inside the villa. The villa is also a few kilometers from Isola Comacina. Once the site of a Roman fort and medieval settlement, Lake Como's only island forms its own little bay with the mainland, just offshore from the town of Ossuccio. They even say the Holy Grail was deposited here for a time.

The villa is just a stone’s throw from Lenno, nestling by a little bay in the lake. The village boasts a beautiful 11th-century church, restored in the 16th century, with a baptistery nearby. From here, head for the grand Villa Balbianello. Do not miss the view of the lake from the balcony and allow a few hours to explore the rooms, in particular the Expeditions Museum, which has memorabilia from Guido Monzino’s travels. Take a walk around the gardens and enjoy the wonderful views from the trails.

Shaped like an upside-down Y, the lake is littered with villages, including exquisite Bellagio and Varenna. Where the southern and western shores converge is the lake's main town, Como, an elegant, prosperous Italian city. Among the area's siren calls are extraordinarily sumptuous villas, often graced with paradisiacal gardens. The mountainous terrain means that opportunities for taking bird's-eye views of the lake and its towns are numerous.

Villa Du Lac is 82 km from Milano Malpensa Airport and 93 km from Milano Linate Airport. Menaggio is 1.5 km from the villa, Tremezzo is 3 km, Villa Carlotta is 3 km, Tremezzina is 4 km, Bellagio is 5 km, Mezzegra is 6 km, Varenna is 6 km, Lenno is 6 km, Villa Monastero is 6 km, Villa Balbianello is 7 km, Isola Comacina is 8 km, Argegno is 13 km, Como is 34 km. The villa is just 1.5 km from Griante and Menaggio, where all the necessary services can be easily found.

The Property

Situated on Lake Como’s West shore, a former boatyard in Griante, Villa Du Lac is now a quintessentially modern building with industrial characteristics. Featuring premium facilities, this unique waterfront villa provides the perfect retreat in one of the most evocative corners in Northern Italy. With an abundant amount of luxurious space, Villa Du Lac can accommodate 14 guests in seven suites. Please note that the villa actually features 8 suites but the eight suite (+2 guests) is available on request at an extra cost.

The expansive 1900-square-meter luxury residence boasts an impressive array of facilities both indoor and outdoor, paired with incredible views over the beautiful Lake Como. Some of the outdoor features of this ex-boatyard are its lakeside heated pool, ample decked terrace with al fresco dining and lounge areas, a pit fire and a private docking space for guests who wish to rent a boat during their stay. The villa also features a private dock and lake access for swimming.

Villa Du Lac is a unique contemporary property where characteristics of the former industrial boatyard have been preserved and combined with incredible architectural design and stunning interiors. Luxury is what defines the interior space as well, which spanning across three levels, features everything from SPA facilities, an expansive dining and living area with exceptional lake views, a library, a grand piano, a wine cellar, a modern gym area, an office room and a fully-equipped kitchen complete with bar.

Villa Du Lac can accommodate 14 guests in an abundant amount of luxurious space, with seven suites, all with air conditioning, en-suite bathrooms, and comfortable spaces to retreat at the end of the day.

The suites all features double bedrooms (please note that the double bedrooms cannot be converted into twin rooms). Air conditioning is available in all suites and in the living room on the ground floor.

The waterfront villa once served as a boatyard, but in 2014 the space was transformed into a guesthouse. Elements of its former life remain, creating a modern feel that is accentuated by the floor-to-ceiling windows, wood paneling and industrial-chic interiors. On the ground floor you will find one suite with en-suite bathroom with shower, the only suite that does not overlook the lake. In the library overlooking the lake you can enjoy a book while tasting one of the exceptional wines of the villa’s wine cellar.
