We wanted to let you know we had a great stay at Villa Sophia and just loved going around the lake on the ferries, the downtown area of Menaggio, Belaggio, Varenna, Lugano and day trip to Milan. George did a great job making sure we were taken care of when we needed something, even after hours, that was very helpful! Thank you again.

Thank you but now in Milan. Internet was out at the Villa. Thank you all for a wonderful stay in Menaggio. Danilo you recommendations were perfect. Maria cooked a fabulous meal. The boat trip was a highlight and we dined at Dansera on Friday.

We stayed at Villa Sophia August 28th - Sept 4th and it was trully the BEST vacation we have ever had! The directions to your office were very good and we met Bryan who was very nice and took us to the villa and showed us around. Anytime we had questions - like where the bus stop was back to Croce, etc your staff was always very friendly and helpful! The villa is just amazing and the views of Lake Como are stunning! We really appreciated the 'welcome basket' that we ordered - it was nice to have some food after traveling so far! We rented a car but the local bus system works very well too and it is nice to have a bus stop so close to Villa Sophia.

We took your advice and ate at La Barcola and it was wonderful! Other restaurants along the Lake we would suggest are: Trattoria Del Glicine in Cernobbio and the Aqua Dolce in Carate Urio. We think everyone should take a ferry ride - we went to Bellagio which was beautiful.The nearby villas are also lovely especially Villa del Balbianello in Lenno and Villa Carlotta in Tremezzo. Some of our friends went to a cooking lesson with Chef Luigi in Bellagio and they had a great time! If anyone is a car enthusiast it is worth the 3 hour drive south to Modena to tour the Ferrari museum, the Pagani museum and factory and the Lamborghini factory and museum - it makes for a long day but is fantastic - AND you get to drive a Ferrari or Lamborghini:) Their website is: motorstars.org.

Funny thing we liked about the villa Sophia was the nearly naked man ironing board cover - we all got a laugh out of that one - so I sent you a picture of it:) Can't buy anything like that in America! We were thinking it is probably an Italian man's way of having his wife iron his clothes more!

We loved waking up each day to the views of Lake Como and miss it very much! A special 'thank you' to Lydia for taking all of our phone calls from the States with our many questions and reserving the villa for us - sorry you were not in the office when we stopped by! Also a big thank you to Bryan who spoke Tagalog with my husband and made us feel right at home!

THANK YOU ALL SO MUCH!!!

Period splendour and luxury living on Lake Como!

Enjoying an elevated position on the Menaggio hillside close to the world famous Menaggio & Cadenabbia Golf Club and the breathtaking Lake of Como and Lugano, guests are sure to enjoy their family holiday and corporate event in style!

The detached villa dates back to 1888 and is a picturesque sight to behold, framed by two majestic cypresses and providing perfect symmetry and elegance with a pale pink facade framed with cream pilasters, a romantic central Juliette balcony and evergreen colour shutter-framed windows to all sides.

The beautiful villa has undergone the highest standard of refurbishment with the use of local craftsmen and modern luxury touches throughout. The villa is perfect for family stays and for corporate hospitality with 4 double beds, 5 single beds, 4 bathrooms, Wi-Fi access, a private bar and garden with outdoor swimming pool. Catering, house-keeping and chauffeur service can also be arranged for your additional comfort upon request.

Electric gates invite guests into a gravel driveway for up to 3 vehicles and a winding path leads to the entrance of the three storey villa.

Internally the ground floor boasts a fully fitted kitchen and a beautiful guest suite furnished to the highest standard with a comfortable double bed fitted with a brand new en-suite bathroom with power shower. Two further double bedrooms and a comfortable bedroom with twin single beds also feature to the ground floor, alongside a fully fitted family bathroom with bath tub, power shower and ‘his and hers’ washbasin sinks.

The villa’s secondary kitchen to the ground floor perfectly complements the stone built BBQ and dining area outside, providing added convenience as a catering and food preparation area for alfresco dinner parties and relaxed summertime lunches.

A wonderful stone staircase with open banister rail and romantic Doric column leads to the first floor which provides the principal living and entertaining quarters. Here at the heart of the villa guests can enjoy a splendid open plan kitchen diner and a splendid drawing room.

The fully fitted kitchen provides all the desired appliances required during your stay and boasts a bespoke hand painted Tuscan-style design with original marble flooring. The dining area features a large antique table with marble fireplace and original wooden flooring. A purpose-built private bar also provides a fabulous way to entertain guests with aperitifs before dining. The romantic Juliette balcony also provides the perfect spot for enjoying a glass of ‘prosecco’ before a splendid dinner.

The drawing room features two marble fireplaces and offers a lovely place to relax and entertain with double aspect views and comfortable sofas to unwind on in front of the TV.
A single bedroom ideal for nannies or staff, with access to a modern fitted bathroom with power shower and washer dryer also features to the first floor of the villa.

The elegant stone steps lead to the upper floor, where two bedrooms furnished with single beds and a luxury master bedroom suite are provided for guests.

The spectacular 85sqm master suite features romantic beamed ceilings and is furnished with a comfortable double bed, a newly fitted luxury en-suite and a comfortable sitting area with splendid panoramic lake views of Lake Como to serve as the perfect backdrop.

In the villa’s manicured garden guests can enjoy alfresco dining with the gas and charcoal BBQ, sun bathing on the sun loungers and can cool down in the fabulous outdoor swimming pool.

POOL OPENING TIMES ~ 15th May - 30th Sept

The villa is ideally situated for those travelling by car with plenty of off-street parking behind its gated entrance. A local convenience store and bus service is situated in Croce and the highly recommended ‘Agroturismo’ popular with families and known as ‘La Barcola’ is less than a 5 minutes drive away.

The nearby world famous Menaggio & Cadenabbia Golf club provides the ideal activity for golf fans and a tennis club and nature can be found in nearby Loveno. Several horse riding centres also operate in Porlezza.

Menaggio is one of the famous picturesque ‘golden triangle’ towns of Lake Como and is easily accessible from Croce, being just a 5 minute’s drive away. Pretty cafe-lined piazzas, a wide variety of shops and restaurants and a family-friendly Lido with cocktail lounge provides all you need on a daily basis and a car and passenger ferry service operates from the town between Bellagio, Varenna and Cadenabbia. Nearby attractions include Villa Carlotta, Villa Melzi and Villa Balbianello. Fine dining can be found easily along the western shore, from the central lake to the south and the trendy Lido bar nightclub in Lenno is also a popular destination in the evenings.

Nearby guests can also enjoy the lake activities which include sailing, kayaking, water sports, quad bike tours and other extreme sports. Ski resorts are many and varied from Madesimo to St Moritz, and are just 1-2 hours drive away. The villa is highly accessible from all major Milan and Swiss airports.
