Situated in the town of Tremezzina on the banks of the magical Lake Como is this breathtaking nine-bedroom house, sitting majestically in vast gardens overlooking the lake. Torcio Felpe was built in 1901 but was lovingly refurbished in 2019, making this powder pink five-storey villa stunning both inside and out.

This grand house can accommodate 18 guests in comfort, so there is plenty of space for family get-togethers. The large indoor pool, beautiful and spacious living areas, private parkland and a tennis court make this house very difficult to beat. As well as being a stunning home, the villa also has all the modern amenities that a family can need. The bedrooms all feature air- conditioning and you have Wi-Fi throughout. If you wish to unwind and watch a film then each bedroom features a smart TV with Amazon Prime and Netflix.

Torcio Felpe is a wonderful place for your Italian holiday; spend your days wandering through the vast private gardens and swimming in the incredible heated pool. Your break is made all the more relaxing as the villa is fully staffed, meaning there are professionals on hand for everything you could need. The chef will prepare breakfast for you with seasonal produce from the kitchen garden including strawberries, cherries and apricots or whatever may be season, alongside local eggs, home-made breads and ricotta tarts. A local management team can also book new activities such as painting, yoga, writing or even truffle-hunting!

Of course, aside from the beauty of the house and the sumptuous interior design, the main attraction is Lake Como itself which you can see from the manicured gardens and expansive terrace. You are in the perfect location to sit back and relax looking over at clear waters of the lake as you unwind in the evening.

When you wish to explore the local area a little you can take a ten-minute stroll down to the village which is packed with fantastic bars and restaurants and has amazing lake views.

If you want to head further out, you will find plenty of places to visit around the shores of the lake. You could take the ferry across the lake to visit the gorgeous town of Bellagio, known as the Pearl of Lake Como. Bellagio has everything you could need for a day trip from historic buildings and pretty winding streets to the stunning gardens at Villa Melzi which are a must-see. The town is also packed with cafes, bars and restaurants where you can sample many local delicacies.

Loading map

Torcio Felpe is located in the town of Tremezzina which is nestled on the west of Lake Como and is one of the area’s largest and most culture-rich towns. The town is made up of a collection of villages each with its own identity and places to explore. The area of Tremezzina and the beautiful shores of the lake have everything you need to enjoy a wonderful holiday without having to travel too far.

There is something for everybody in this breathtakingly beautiful area. Starting in the closest village to your home, you will find lots of lovely bars, restaurants and shops to visit and all easy to reach from the villa. It also has plenty of history and culture on offer and you can make a day of it by visiting the gorgeous churches, baptisteries and monuments in the village. An historic hamlet is also situated in the village and here you can see the old mountainside village and a tower. After all this, head down to the promenade to soak up the clear lake views.

Other nearby villages of Mezzegra, Tremezzo and Ossuccio are all worth a visit and are all within a 20-minute drive of the villa. Ossuccio, for example, was a Roman village and retains a historic charm. Visit Ossuccio for its rugged mountain backdrops and views of Comacina island as well as to sample local seafood dishes.

If heading out for a day trip then you should consider taking a ferry over to Bellagio which is one of the lakes best-loved towns. Bellagio is a small town which you can explore within a few hours, so is ideal for visiting on the ferry. You can either book onto a walking tour to explore the town or look around by yourself. If you want to escape the busy tourist areas of Bellagio, head to the small village of Pescallo which you can walk to in around 15 minutes. Here you can hire boats and head on to the still waters of the lake, or eat at an authentic local restaurant.

From your base at Torcio Felpe there are plenty more places you can explore if wishing to head further afield, including the town of Como which is around an hour away by boat or car and the city of Milan which is an hour and a half away in the car.

Kids

Best Suited For: All Ages

With the shore of the lake just a few steps away from your villa, the lake itself is an ideal place to start when looking for kids activities in the area. As a family, you could explore the lake together by booking on to a guided boat trip or you could even hire a rowing boat or speed boat for the day depending on the ages of the kids. Children will have plenty to try out on the lake; kayaking, kite surfing, sailing and windsurfing are all available near the house.

A lovely family day out is a visit to Villa Carlotta which is just a short drive away from Torcio Felpe. This eighteenth-century villa was once a grand house of successful silk merchants but is now home to a museum. The museum and art gallery have wonderful collections and hold family-friendly workshops. One of the main draws of the villa, however, is the gardens which are astounding. Children love to spend the day exploring and running around the vast botanical gardens and there are gelato stands in the grounds for when they need to cool down.

If you are visiting Bellagio then 11km from the town is Jungle Raider Park which has many kid friendly activities including cave tours, zip-lines and rope courses, everybody in your group can get involved in the outdoor activities on offer before heading back to Bellagio for pizza.
