Villa Cardano has been completely renovated and offers today 2 apartments for rent. It is located on a hill in the Spina Verde Nature Park, surrounded by a large garden and only a few minutes from Como and the motorway. The villa is easily accessible by car, train, and plane and offers gated free parking next to the house.
It is especially suited for holidays at Lake Como or day trips to Milan or Switzerland or just as a stop-over on the way from Northern Europe to Italy or Southern France.

The space
The spacious penthouse with over 70 square meters has two bedrooms, a separable living room with a pull-out sofa, which can be used as a third bedroom, a kitchen with dining area for 6 people and two bathrooms.

The living room is equipped with satellite TV (Astra with hundreds of channels in various languages) and has access to the sunny and spacious 30 sqm roof terrace, which is to be used exclusively by the guests of the penthouse.

In addition, the house has a second approximately 65 square meter roof terrace (on the cover picture with the lounge furniture), which is to be shared with the host and guests from the Studio. This terrace has a 270 ° panoramic view of Como, Lake Como, and the Spina Verde Nature Park. Even locals say that this is the most beautiful view of the lake they know.

All rooms have floor to ceiling windows from where you have a beautiful distant view or view of Lake Como, the city of Como or the countryside. The rooms can be completely darkened with exterior blinds. Although there is no air conditioning, you can in summer keep the apartment pleasantly cool by tilting the slats and let the breeze in from the mountains (other than at the lakeside where you often have a damp heat). In addition, the bedrooms are equipped with fans.

The kitchen is fully equipped with cutlery, crockery, an espresso machine, an induction ceramic hob, sink, dishwasher and refrigerator with 3 * - freezer.

The beds in the 2 bedrooms are new extra wide box spring beds which are - according to most guests - very comfortable. Also, the pull-out couch in the living room has the same measure and is equal to a normal bed.

The bedrooms are covered with parquet, the living rooms with stone tiles. The apartment is heated by underfloor heating.

Where you’ll be

Como, Lombardia, Italy

Lake Como is a pearl among the northern Italian lakes. The exclusive location near Milan, the mild Mediterranean climate, the proximity to the Alps and the beautiful villa and park architecture have made many celebrities (eg George Clooney, Donatella Versace or many football professionals of the famous Milanese Clubs) buy a house near the lake.

In contrast to Lake Garda, which is stormed by tourists in the summer, Lake Como and especially the city of Como with its approximately 80,000 inhabitants is still an exclusive holiday destination.

The almost car-free old town of Como, which is separated from the rest of the city by an intact medieval city wall, offers beautiful alleys for strolling through beautiful and exclusive shops, restaurants and boutiques.

By foot or via the rack railway you can climb up to the small village of Brunate and walk from there in about 30 minutes walk to the lighthouse with a magnificent view over the lake.

If you have a little more time, take a day trip by ferry or speedboat to Bellagio and wonder why Las Vegas has rebuilt this place, even though all the other places on Lake Como are at least as beautiful.

It is also worthwhile taking a trip (by car or ferry) to Villa Balbianello (which has served as a backdrop for many movies including Star Wars and James Bond), Villa Carlotta with its famous botanical garden, Villa La Collina (summer residence of former German chancellor Konrad Adenauer), Villa Olmo (hall with changing exhibitions, to reach from the ferry terminal in Como passing by the Volta Temple and the water aerodrome on a nice walk along the lake), Villa Erba (Congress Hall, venue for the filming of the feature film Ocean's Twelve) and Villa d'Este (5-star luxury hotel, the setting for the Concorso d'Eleganza, one of the world's most exclusive classic car events, every spring).

I love to travel and meet people. When I found a wonderful villa at one of the nicest spots on earth on Lake Como in Italy, it was only natural to me to share it with like-minded people.
