The spacious two bedroom property is situated on the second floor of the period Villa and the accommodation is distinctive, elegant, modern and inviting with a bright and well proportioned lake view sitting room which features three comfortable sofas, a TV, dining area and a wonderful view of the Bellagio peninsular. The owner’s own tasteful and eccentric flair can be enjoyed in the property and can be seen in the original art pieces, antique furniture and modernist touches; the style being Italian distinctly works and provides both a restful and vibrant atmosphere for guests to enjoy.
A modern fully fitted kitchen with dining area provides all the desired appliances for a self-catering holiday and also enjoys a wonderful view of the lake which is perfect whilst preparing food.
The principal lake view master bedroom is beautifully furnished with antique pieces, floor to ceiling lake view windows and includes modern touches such as a flat screen TV for guests’ entertainment. From the master bedroom French doors open out onto a fabulous sunny lake view balcony terrace. An Alfresco dining set features and makes for the perfect dinner party venue, overlooking the villa’s romantic gardens and the breathtaking Lake Como with picturesque views towards Bellagio and the pretty resort town of Varenna on the eastern lakeshore.
A second spacious twin bedroom with stylish bamboo single beds and a bright and open atmosphere also features and is ideal for guests.
A contemporary newly fitted bathroom with bath tub and a second modern rustic style shower room are also situated in the property.
Guests are able to enjoy the splendid resident landscaped gardens of the villa which feature specimen trees and spectacular flower displays and are ideal for walking and relaxing in.
From the villa local restaurants can be reached along the road by foot, and conveniently by car in a matter of minutes guests will reach the famous Villa Carlotta, Tremezzo cafes, bars, restaurants and lakeside park, the Cadenabbia car and passenger ferry, the famous Villa Balbianello and the picturesque resort town of Menaggio with boutique shops, Lido beach and swimming pools and charming piazzas.

Villa Marghereta is a beautiful old Villa located on a superb Location. The views from the appt Margherita GRande are breathtaking. Breakfast and Diner on the balcony with a direct view over the lake to Belaggio, close to Menaggio...it doesnt get better. Good parking, great gardens...
Our stay at Lake Como was wonderful and what a great backdrop of the landscape of the area. Overall the place is great and it was a treat to get to stay in this grand villa on the shores of Lake Como. Spacious and well appointed 2 bedroom apartment on 2nd floor with a lovely terrace overlooking the Lake. Perfect place for breakfast or late afternoon cocktails. Eclectic furnishings which were lovely.
The views from this Villa are to die for!
The staff and dealing with the office has always been great and nothing was too hard.
What a treat to get to stay in this villa on the shores of Lake Como. Spacious and well appointed 2 bedroom apartment on second floor with a lovely terrace overlooking the lake. Perfect place for breakfast or late afternoon cocktails. Self catering accommodation, however no oven or toaster and no washing machine. Eclectic furnishing which were lovely however beds were very uncomfortable- for the cost of this villa one should expect a decent bed and fluffy towels - we had neither.
Main bedroom has an ensuite which is functional but basic, and the hot water is only Luke warm, second bedroo is on a mezzanine level, above the main bedroom with glass sliding panels, so don't expect too much privacy in the main bedroom. Second bathroom is barely functiona - rustic is the romantic description, but really it should be updated immediately. You need to be short to access the area without bumping your head. The views from this villa are to die for, and with a couple if new beds, some fluffy towels and hot water, it would be perfect. Guests also have access to the lakeside pool across the road.
I recently stayed in Villa Margherita Grande with my husband and daughter. We absolutely loved the villa, it's spaciousness and the beautiful views from every window!
We enjoyed our stay at the villa immensely. It was lovely and sunny, the gardens are beautiful. It is a very special place and we never ceased to be fascinated by the views.
