Welcome to Malakoff, a luxury 4-bedroom villa located minutes from the shores of Lake Como in Italy.

This is the ideal home away from home to make memories that will last a lifetime on Lake Como. The home was originally built in 1860 and is located within the 25-acre complex of the famous Hotel Villa D’Este’s estate. This location provides guests with an experience like no other. This location combines intimacy and privacy all in one creating a perfect vacation destination. Offers unparalleled services and amenities that only a five-star luxury Hotel can offer.

The villa takes its name from one of the fortresses around Sebastopol, conquered by the French General MacMahon. Sitting on a small hill, it offers superb views of Lake Como and is where you will feel most at home. The rooms in the villa are distributed over three floors and offer three hundred square meters of living space. A stay at Villa Malakoff is truly a gift to yourself, a once-in-a-lifetime experience.

A stay at the Villa Malakoff is truly the best of both worlds: a private home where you can enjoy discretion and privacy, yet one provided with all the amenities and creature comforts offered by the world-class service of a Villa d’Este Group property. You won’t have to lift a finger for the duration of your stay as all your needs will be met at Malakoff.

If you wish to arrange for private transportation or perhaps rent your own vehicle, there are endless adventures in Lake Como. For those looking to relax without having to get behind the wheel of a car, we recommend utilizing the convenient local ferries that are departing from the jetty in the center of town. Self-drivers will discover a plethora of nearby destinations to explore and have the opportunity to discover the roads less traveled. We recommend that you head down to the nearby town of Bellagio. It is locally known as “The Pearl of the Lake” for its traditional trattorias, delicious gelato, and fantastic shopping. If you are looking for some additional inspiration, we have put together a list of our favorite things to do in Lake Como.

The area of Lake Como is abundant in picturesque towns with narrow cobbled streets, breath-taking views, and lovely homes and gardens, best visited from late spring to early fall. Take a stroll through the city of Como to enjoy its history and architecture, then hop on the ferry and head north to visit other towns on the lakeshore.

However, there is more to do in this area than traditional sightseeing. Visitors can book a flight over the lake by seaplane or take the hillside trolley to Brunate and enjoy spectacular views from above. Extreme sports enthusiasts can enjoy paragliding off Mount Nuvolone. Small and large groups alike can book boat tours with our concierge to enjoy the lake from the water.

Lake Como offers water-skiing, windsurfing, and wakeboarding for the more adventurous. Bikers will surely enjoy the natural trails that lead to the mountains or even hidden pebbled beaches. Go for a round of golf or tennis at one of the many locations across the lake region. With fashion-capital Milan just 45 minutes away, it's no wonder that Lake Como also offers excellent designer shopping.
