Description

Villa Azalea - Mezzegra – Lake Como

9+1 Bedrooms – Indoor Pool –Gym – Tennis Court

Location and Surrounding Area. Overlooking the magnificent Lake Como, this exclusive nine bedroom property is perfectly nestled in a panoramic position and ideally located to offer complete privacy and pure relaxation to its guests. Combining a sophisticated design with charming views over the lake, Villa Azalea represents the ultimate escape from the hustle and bustle of everyday life with a unique twist of contemporary style. The villa is located in Mezzegra, which is part of the town of Tremezzina, one of the largest and most fascinating towns on the western shore of Lake Como.

Rich in history, art and culture, Tremezzina also offers some of the most evocative sceneries of Lake Como: the Comacina Island, the only island of Lake Como, is admired for its remarkable panoramic views and the lush Mediterranean vegetation. Villa Azalea is also just a stone’s throw away from Villa del Balbaniello: this elegant 18th-century villa sits on a promontory protruding into the lake, delighting visitors with its lavish gardens, unique loggia, and historic prominence in Italy’s fight for independence.

Reachable by boat, Bellagio is situated at the top of the so-called Lariano Triangle, at the base of the promontory that divides the lake into the branches of Como and Lecco. Bellagio represents one of the most famous and elegant towns of Lake Como, and is extremely well-known for its wonderful villas and gardens, mild climate and naturalistic-environmental characteristics of great charm. Argegno is a small village overlooking Lake Como in the area of its major depth, and its proximity to Como, Tremezzina, and other popular towns, makes it one of the most loved destinations by tourists from all over the world.

The villa is also just a stone’s throw away from Menaggio, the most important center of the west 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, such as Villa Carlotta, a fabulous residence located in a panoramic position overlooking Lake Como, Bellagio, and the Grigna mountain, whose magnificent botanic gardens and art masterpieces attract visitors from all over the world.

Villa Azalea is 26 km from Como, 75 km from Milan, and 75 km from Milan Malpensa Airport. Villa Balbaniello is less than 2 km from the property, Lenno is 2 km, Villa Carlotta is 5 km, Tremezzina is 5 km, Argegno is 5 km, Bellagio is 9 km, Menaggio is 9 km, and Varenna is 11 km. If you are looking for a well-heeled ski vacation, St. Moritz is just a two-hour drive from the villa.
