Overview of Villa Chicha

What Oliver loves…

  • Loungers on the terrace overlook the calm waters at this villa on Lake Como. Che bello!
  • Have a truly customized holiday - the owners are happy to arrange spa services, wine tours, and more.
  • Walk (or bike!) to restaurants and shops in Lezzeno, or drive just 10 minutes to Bellagio.

What you should know…

  • There is no pool, but guests can swim in the lake from the house (bring water shoes, as the bottom is stony.)
  • Pets will be considered on a case-by-case basis, just ask!

This refined villa on Lake Como proves a lake house needn’t be only a humble cottage. The Swiss Alps melt southward into the striking hills on the other side of the lake. Observe those hills from the wide terraces of your holiday villa, or the charming towns nearby. The sunny interior of this butter-yellow home has every creature comfort; the updated kitchen and bathrooms will serve you well (especially the Jacuzzi tub). Throw open the large windows to expose spectacular vistas in every room.

Your hosts, Stefano and Chicca, live quietly across the park within their own private grounds. They are happy to arrange any services you desire - from wine tastings to massage, cooking lessons to a personal chef. Feel free to use the canoes and bicycles provided for your excursions - it’s easy to launch your vessel from the pebbled beach right outside.

Your villa lies in the village of Lezzeno, where you'll find restaurants and shops among the quaint avenues. Only 7 km away is Bellagio, "The Pearl of Lake Como", where city charms have sprung up beside the most marvellous views. The border of Switzerland lies only an hour away, a perfect day trip!

Map, Location & Local Information

The area around Lake Como is one of outstanding beauty. Stretching from the Swiss Alps to the Grigne and Legnone ranges, Lake Como is guarded by spectacular mountain landscapes. Pastel-coloured villages perch along the shorelines and trail up the steep sides. In this part of Italy, there are the simplest rural dwellings as well as the palatial villas of the 18th century.

A walk around one of these central lake villages, up a cobbled avenue or across a church square, will convince visitors to pause for a moment on a sunny bench, to stop for an aperitivo at a sidewalk café or pop into a gelateria for homemade ice cream.

Whether exploring the lake by foot, car or boat, it should be a leisurely experience. Choose from one of the numerous activities the area offers, or simply enjoy the comfort of the splendid private villa.

Milan itself opens up an array of possibilities. Visit Leonardo Da Vinci’s Last Supper, the Duomo, or stroll down the famous shopping street of Via Montenapoleone.

Guests also have the possibility to explore some of northern Italy’s other lakes, such as Lake Maggiore in Piedmont to the west or even a day trip into Switzerland. For the cultural enthusiasts, the historical city of Turin in Piedmont is well within reach, as are Venice and Verona heading east.

Reviews for Villa Chicha

Villa Chicha Reviews


  • Sublime!

    Posted by Gavin B on 16/08/2013

    From the first moment driving through the gates of Villa Chicha to the last sad moment driving away for the last time - this was simply sublime. Beautifully positioned on the lakeside with all the creature comforts of home and very well maintained and presented. Lots of space for 3 active kids to run around and explore with direct lake access to also go swimming when it was warm enough. Stefano and Chicha are fabulous hosts who went out of their way to ensure our visit to Villa Chicha was memorable. We will most definitely be recommending this to friends and family. Outstanding!

  • Most relaxing holiday ever!

    Posted by Elizabeth H on 23/07/2013

    Idyllic location, beautiful villa, perfectly equipped for lazy days. You can spend hours just watching the lake birds and boats. You can even swim in the lake from the little "beach" outside the villa steps. You,ll need waterproof shoes though as is very stoney and painful to walk on barefoot. Two local restaurants are great, easy walking distance. Water taxi at other end of Lezzeno is only 20 minute walk away and bus is just 5 mins away. You will get used to walking on the main road. I wouldn't bother hiring a car as the road from Como to Bellagio is very narrow and pretty hair-raising at times.
