La Venere Di Como

A wealthy industrial family from Milan built Villa Venere di Como in 1911 in Argegno, picturesque holiday resort on the west shore of Como lake. Sunny, elevated position, with stunning view of the lake. Due to its beautiful location, from the villa one can see from the headland of Bellagio to the north pre-Alps and as far as Nesso to the south. Just in front of the villa there is the classic S. Sisinnio church. A very romantic spot available for catholic weddings or ceremonies. S. Sisinnio church has been represented in a Winston Churchill watercolour, who painted it from the garden of Villa Venere di Como.

The house and garden has been fully restored in 2012, preserving all the ancient details and materials. Marble and terracotta floors, doors, ironworks, decoration are original of ‘911. Antique furniture, paintings, statues create a very exclusive atmosphere. A Roman origin pedestrian road leads from the villa to Argegno and the lake, covering in a 800 mtrs path, the height difference of 80 mtrs. Argegno ( 280 mts above sea level) is situated in a large, sunny inlet on the western shore of lake Como, between Laglio, where George Clooney house is located, and Tremezzo, favourite place many Vips. Argegno is one of the most favorite destination for tourists on Lake Como. It has a pleasant climate and it is mild even in the winter months.
