  • Description

    On the water yet only a five minute lakeside stroll from Como's central piazza, Villa Appiani is one of Lake Como's most unique and historic Luxury Villas. A three year renovation, finished in 2009, has restored the 1772 villa to its full artistic splendor, while adding modern conveniences such as swimming pool, air conditioning, elevator, full gym and yoga studio, hi-speed internet, and more.

    One of the famous "Seven Sisters of Como", Villa Appiani is filled with frescoes and is the subject of a novel written in 1856 by French author Nathalie Comtesse. Few villas match Appiani's opulence and perhaps none can offer the proximity to the center of Como. Whether basking in the luxury of this 12,000 sq. ft mansion, strolling to the medieval center of Como, or boating from the backyard on one of Europe's most beautiful lakes, your best ideals of vacation life in Italy can be realized here.

    Garden:

    The lakeside garden is approximately 70 yards long by 20 yards wide.
    Swimming Pool 15 yards by 5 yards; the pool can be heated upon request and with an extra charge.
    The back gate opens onto the famous "Passeggiata Villa Olmo" on the water.
    5 Stair steps descend from the backyard into the boathouse and the lake.
    The entire garden is surrounded by stone walls and hedges 10 ft in height for optimal privacy.
