Located 5 minutes from the center of Como, in the beautiful, green lush of Valfresca, you can enjoy the peace and quiet of a countryside vacation, and still be close enough to the center of Como to enjoy the best of both worlds!

The space

Our home has 4500 square meters (approx. 45,000 sq. feet) of private and exclusive garden, where you can lounge on a chaise lounge, lay in a hammock or the children can run and play freely. Indoors you will find 500 square meters (approx. 5000 sq. feet) of living space. You will wake up to the lovely sounds of birds singing and relax in the evening to the quietness and serenity of the Valley. You will feel like you are in a paradise, yet walking distance from the center of Como. However, a car recommended.... Parking is available. There are outdoor terraces that allow you to eat, sit, drink, and smoke while enjoying the fresh outdoors.
There are other families living in other parts of the villa, They have their own private entrance and outdoor space. OUR VILLA is a private residence with it's own private garden. There is no need for air conditioning as the Villa is constructed of stone and surrounded by trees.

Guests will have access to exclusive use of the garden. Guests will have free wifi access. Billiard Room, Foose ball, Home theatre, Cable TV, Barbecue Grill. Essentials, Heating. Housemaid and cook available upon request.

For the most part, we will not be present during the guests stay. However, someone will be available to assist our guests when needed.

I love the fact that our villa is close enough to walk into the center, but isolated enough to feel the peace and tranquility of a countryside home. The private driveway is surrounded by fruit trees and sweet smelling jasmine (seasonal). An unforgettable place to stay and enjoy Como.

Public transportation is available on the main road. Taxi service is also available for anyone not wanting to walk. Parking is available for those who rent a car. Private driver also available upon request.

Our villa is a great place for parties, weddings, family reunions or for family/friends who just want to vacation together. Perfect place to relax and unwind. 45 mins to Milan. 10 mins to the Swiss border. 15 minutes to Foxtown Factory Stores Outlet Mall.

We had an absolutely wonderful time at Nancy's villa. It was just gorgeous. The villa was beautiful and true to all pictures. Nancy was always available and easy to communicate with. I would definitely come back for another family trip as the villa was also very family friendly!

This beautiful Como villa is located up a hill about a 25 minute walk into Como central. The villa has all the amenities that you could imagine, with a pool table, foosball and entertainment room. The kitchen was amazing for those nights when we wanted to cook at home - it had EVERY appliance and utensil you could wish for! The rooms were all spacious and clean - the house accommodated our group of 8 easily - and the gardens were great to lie out in on sunny days. The only thing to consider is that the walker and from town can take some time. We really enjoyed it, however we also rented a car for those days/nights when we weren't up for the trek back to the villa. Also - pay close attention to the directions that they give you before you arrive. We still got a bit lost even though we thought we had followed them!! Overall, this was a lovely retreat close to lake Como and a great option for large groups looking to spend some time in the area!

Our host Nancy was fantastic to work with. She made sure she answered all of my questions about the villa prior to our stay. Nancy greeted us at the villa, gave a tour around the property and showed how everything worked. She made us feel very welcomed and relaxed. The villa has wonderful old world charm and modern amenities and is exactly as described. There was plenty of indoor and outdoor seating for meals or conversations for our party of 11. The bedrooms and baths were large and beautifully appointed and had all necessary linens. The guest cottage, just a short walk down the path from the villa, was a great private getaway. It was also well appointed and had its own espresso machine. We loved the large shower which we stepped down into. The cottage has the only view of Lake Como. The villa has views of the surrounding hills which are also beautiful. Our group had a truly memorable stay in this amazing 17th century villa. I would recommend it to anyone that wants a real Italian experience!! I hope we will return some day!

The house is beautiful, very spacious and nicely furnished. Every room has its own character. The multimedia room and the billiard room are really special. Also the separate guesthouse offers comfortable living. The garden is nicely kept and the terrasse was a comfortable place for the evenings. We were there with ten persons (8 adults and two small children) and everyone enjoyed the stay. All of us had different plans during the day, but we all met again in the afternoon and enjoyed cooking in the very spacious and well equipped kitchen and most of the evenings the weather was great and we could also use the grills on the terrace. Nancy was very supporting, answered all our questions from the beginning and organized everything perfectly, we were even welcomed with flowers on the table. Thank you for having us, we had a wonderful time and can definitely recommend the house to anyone looking for a really nice place to stay when visiting the Como region.

nice house, you need to have a car because the house located on a mountain. It takes about 40 minutes to Milan downtown from the house. We enjoyed to cook in the house, Nancy provides everything in the kitchen which is quite big, it's very convenient.
