This luxury Lake Como villa, a true water-front property that ends just where the waters lap the shore, has been impressively refurbished to combine modernity with glorious 20th century style. The stunning location of Villa dei Viaggiatori offers breath taking views of Lake Como, with the outline of Alpine snowy peaks in the distance, while all around lies a unique botanical garden brimming with rare and ancient trees.
In 1891, due to the sheer beauty of the area, the Marquis Eugenio Besana created this impressive residence that was later sold to one of the most important Italian Industrial dynasties. The peacefulness of the location is unique, situated in one of the one of the most picturesque places in the region of Lombardy. Set on the lake edge, in front of Villa Carlotta and Villa Balbianello, this luxury Lake Como villa is just a ten minute-walk from Bellagio (nicknamed “The Pearl of the Lake”), famous for its cobbled streets, shops and restaurants and a short drive from the renowned Menaggio Golf Club and Villa D’Este Golf Club.
Villa dei Viaggiatori can comfortably accommodate up to 20 guests in rooms elegantly decorated with 19th and 20th century Italian furniture and worldly artefacts. Close to thirty thousand rare and antique books fill the huge oak library that guests may request to study. A passion for culture, style and luxury has been lovingly bestowed on this superb Italian villa over four generations. An impressive collection of beautiful Italian artwork is displayed throughout the villa and in the museum on the second floor, while outside a unique botanical garden been created.
