Welcome to Villa Peduzzi, an exquisite villa in all aspects, perched above the beautiful Lake Como in the north of Italy, touching off the Swiss border.

A comprehensively built villa that includes all the features and necessities that guests could want or need, the newly renovated Villa Peduzzi has a history of over 100 years behind it as a villa; originally built on the site of a medieval watch tower, Villa Peduzzi is an authentic Liberty-style villa, a style of architecture that was inspired by the Art Nouveau movement of the 19th century. It was built in 1909 by the Peduzzi family and refurbished in recent years under the careful direction and guidance of Italian architect, Andrea Meirana. Now at the pinnacle of its restoration, the villa maintains the features of the Liberty style of architecture that makes it so unique, while implementing cutting-edge technology and modern luxuries that allow it to take its place in the present day.

Surrounded by 4.5 acres of landscaped gardens and lush green forest, privacy, and security can be enjoyed from any room of the villa. Numerous outdoor lounge areas can be found in the extensive grounds of the property, as well as a dining area under a pergola overlooking the lake, for a refreshing take on an al fresco dinner. A short stroll from the villa will lead guests to the pool house, which sits over the infinity edge pool, containing a kitchen, bathroom, and island bar, as well as comfortable seating in front of the full-length folding windows. The infinity-edge swimming pool is surrounded by a beautiful, sleek stone terrace, with an ample supply of sun loungers, ideally positioned to catch the best of the day’s sunshine. A corner couch with a low coffee table provides the perfect spot to enjoy a morning coffee and watch the rays of the sun glittering off the surface of the lake.

Check out what our Italy villa experts had to say about Villa Peduzzi when they stayed here.

Inside, the furnishings are minimal and contemporary, to allow the pre-existing Art Nouveau influences to take the spotlight; mosaic floors, carefully restored frescoes, wrought iron balconies, and stonework facades that feature throughout, the interiors were kept as faithful as possible to what originally existed, and these lend a great deal of character to the villa; the interior is as much a time capsule to the early 1900’s, as it is a highly valued feature of the property. This is by far one of the nicest Lake Como Villas.

The villa features 3 main floors and a basement, accessible by stairs and elevator, of which there are 8 bedrooms, 6 bathrooms, a living area, two kitchens, a dining room, a study, a media room, a bar, rooftop terraces, a wellness center with gym and yoga facilities, and the pool house. The first and second floors are mirrored in layout, and contain the majority of bedrooms, with four on each floor; the third floor is a wide open-plan lounge, containing an array of entertainment choices, including a TV and projector with video game consoles, a sound system attached, alongside a pool table, books, and board games – a small kitchenette is also installed. Two rooftop terraces can also be accessed from here; with fabulous views of the lake to be enjoyed.

The top bedroom is accessed via the third floor and is the highest part of the house; it enjoys the most light through its windows and the widest view of the surrounding landscape.

The tall narrow windows lead out onto small balconies, providing each of the bedrooms a different vista to behold in the mornings; to the south, the lake and mountains, to the west, breathtaking sunsets, and to the east, gorgeous sunrises over the mountain range. Each room is outfitted with luxurious beds and comfortable bedding to ensure that guests are content and well-rested upon waking the next day. Large, well-outfitted bathrooms adjoin the rooms, some containing large standalone bathtubs that are perfect for easing the body after a hectic day of activity.

Area description

Perched a lofty 881 meters above the picturesque lake and shrouded by 4.5 acres of lush gardens and forest, the privacy and seclusion that Villa Peduzzi offers are part of what makes it so attractive. On the other hand, conveniences and necessities are quite close by; the nearest village, Pigra, is a little under half a kilometer away from the gates of the villa and is seen by many as a base of operations when it comes to mountain biking and trail hiking. The town of Argegno is a 25-minute car ride away, with a range of restaurants, a river taxi service to explore all that the mountain lake has to offer, and a private boat that guests have exclusive access to, should they wish it.

Further afield, the fashion capital of the world and the second most populated city of Italy, Milan (84km) lies to the south and is home to many centuries of art, culture, and architecture.

The villa and staff were great, but we were slightly disappointed with the 30 minute drive to the bottom of the hill! However, as I say the villa and staff were tremendous.

Expert Reviews

What an incredible villa

Expert Review Pic My first trip to Lake Como and I was fortunate enough to spend my first night at Villa Peduzzi. The position of the villa at the top of the hill offers the most spectacular views of Lake Como, it literally took my breath away. The villa is so welcoming and cozy, with a choice of areas to sit and relax. The bedrooms are simply stunning, with luxurious bathrooms - all of which had amazing views. The infinity pool overlooking Lake Como was fabulous, as were the various seating areas outside. Villa Peduzzi welcomes children and offers a wonderful play area, with a fire engine and climbing frame, most children never want to leave and neither did I! Simply fabulous.

Luxury hilltop villa with breathtaking views

Expert Review Pic I was lucky enough to stay at Villa Peduzzi in November 2021 and can honestly say that it will live in my mind for a long time. This is luxury accommodation at its finest with breathtaking views of Lake Como, an infinity pool, majestic ensuite bedrooms, and a team of staff who will look after your every need while you are there. I would happily recommend a stay at the beautiful Villa Peduzzi.

The View is Beyond Imagination

Expert Review Pic The view at Peduzzi is absolutely breathtaking. I have honestly in all my time viewing villas seen one more beautiful than this. The team who are led by Sara and Paola are true professionals and there is nothing that is too much trouble. The standard of bedroom accommodation is at least as good as a five-star hotel. I loved the rooftop living area. Of course, it has the best view but its also amazingly cozy.
