Serena


Description


Welcome to Villa Serena, an exceptional 6-bedroom property set directly on the shore of the world-renowned Lake Como, Italy. This home offers you and your guests a blend of state-of-the-art comfort with elegant luxury design. Set in a highly desirable location close to the picturesque town of Como, the villa offers you close access to local amenities while still allowing you to enjoy the privacy of your own private estate. For a large group travelling together, Villa Serena can be rented alongside Villa Maria as the beautiful 13-bedroom Cigno Estate.

The villa is located down a shaded quarter-mile road, guarded by a charming old gatehouse. Wake up to the sound of bird song in the morning as the surrounding seven acres of luxuriant woodland and gardens guarantees blissful nature sounds, and seclusion. For those looking to make the most of the temperate Italian climate, there is a grand furnished terrace, including stylish chaise longues, which boasts unparalleled views of the lake and surrounding foothills. You can spend the afternoon laying out, soaking up the sun, sipping on a delicious Aperol Spritz, followed by a refreshing swim in the private heated panoramic pool. Or better still, why not take advantage of the estate's 100 feet of exclusive shoreline and have a dip right in the lake's crystal-clear waters. From the property park, you can leave via a private gate straight into the nearby village to stroll around its charming square on the harbor, 17th-century church, and village garden.

Your every need is catered to at Villa Serena with a full-staff including butler service. Inside, the villa is furnished with the finest Italian linens and stunning antiques from the owner's private collection. The sense of grandeur begins the moment you step in the door into the frescoed entrance hall. A reading room, complete with TV, decorated fireplace, and library, offers a quiet corner for some independence. The central living room boasts a 1900 Blunter Grand piano, and with French doors that open directly out on the lakefront terrace, it is a great space for those who love to entertain. For a special occasion our concierge service will go above and beyond to organize an incredible night, from a private chef to prepare a spread of some of the best food in Italy, to an expert mixologist, the team will ensure your dream is brought to life.

A stay in Lake Como is perfect for glamourous jetsetters and intrepid travelers alike. Take advantage of the villa's private boats to cruise along the lake, spotting some of the incredible homes of the rich and famous or stopping off in some of the charming towns and villages that are dotted along the coast. Many beautiful hiking and cycling trails wind through the surrounding mountains, with the summits offering incredible views of the water below.
