Villa Ferrara sits directly on the shores of Lake Como within a charming village setting and offers unspoilt views over the water. A pebble beach is just moments from the doorstep, with the village centre a short walk away. The soaring mountains in the distance are the perfect backdrop to this peaceful lakeside retreat.

The stylish villa sleeps up to 12 people, with six bedrooms and a spacious interior making it ideal for larger groups. And the open-plan living area seems to have been specifically designed with special gatherings in mind. There's a wood-burning stove that creates a lovely evening atmosphere, and doors that flood the room with light by day and open onto the terrace out to the lake. Enjoy meals under delicate chandelier light at the dining table that's large enough to seat everyone in comfort. Then perhaps retreat to the small sitting room with its cosy, relaxed feel.

Contemporary style meets classic heritage throughout Villa Ferrara, from the Lombardy terracotta floor tiles found on the ground floor, to the chestnut-wood floors upstairs. Earthy colours and natural materials are the perfect complement to the villa's high-quality, modern finish. This is especially the case with the six double bedrooms, as each is wonderfully spacious and boasts an ensuite bathroom. Some also have their own terrace for soaking up the magical lake and mountain views.

Take a dip in the private swimming pool, with the beach and lake just a stone's throw away. And enjoy the idyllic nature of the gardens as you sit back with your favourite drink and watch boats gliding over the tranquil waters.

Picturesque Lake Como is popular for activities such as swimming, waterskiing, sailing and windsurfing. And in mere minutes you can be taking in the views and laid-back atmosphere from the public pebble beach. There's also an interesting boat museum to explore nearby.

Plenty of lakeside towns and villages are easy to reach from Villa Ferrara, with some of the closest including Santa Maria Rezzonico, Menaggio and Tremezzo. Beautiful villas, botanical gardens and historic buildings all await, with stunning natural landscapes and boat trips along Lake Como all on offer.

Villa Ferrara couldn't be in a much better location for enjoying peaceful views over Lake Como in the quiet village it sits within. A pebble beach is just a couple of minutes' walk away, with the lake offering activities such as sailing, windsurfing and waterskiing.

Also just a short distance from the villa is a museum with lake boats on display that date back to the 19th century, right through to those from modern times. Once you've explored the museum, stroll into the village centre along the promenade. It has several amenities, such as shops, restaurants, a post office and a bank.

Santa Maria Rezzonico (4km) was once just a humble fishing village, but has since become a popular town to visit on Lake Como. It's also less than a 10-minute drive from Villa Ferrara. The typical narrow lanes are dotted with historic buildings, structures and stairways, with plenty of cafes and restaurants in which to soak up the laid-back atmosphere. Overlooking the town is a castle with a tower that provides sweeping views over the sea. The 14th-century church of Santa Maria Assunta has an ornate exterior with beautiful paintings to admire inside.

Another lakeside town to visit on a day trip is Menaggio (11km). You can drive there, or take the ferry down the shores of Lake Como. Children will especially enjoy the town's lido, with swimming pools, sandy beach and fun activities all on offer. And history lovers will certainly want to visit the ruined medieval castle.

The whole Lake Como area is known for its botanical gardens, with many towns and villages boasting beautiful green spaces. One of the most impressive botanical gardens is found at Villa Carlotta in Tremezzo (15km).

Just a few steps from the villa is a boat museum that is well worth a visit. It's full of different types of boats, including vintage ones, and the whole family will enjoy looking at all the displays. After you've explored the museum, walk back to the pebble beach just outside the villa to go swimming in the lake.

The beautiful town of Menaggio (11km) is only 15 minutes away by car. There's a lido with swimming pools, volleyball, a sandy beach and various children's activities.

Lake Como's scenic towns and villages are well-known for their botanical gardens, which can be enjoyed by all the family. Tremezzo is where you'll find majestic Villa Carlotta (16km). The villa is set within botanical gardens that are perfect for children explore, with several ponds offering the chance to spot fish, frogs and even turtles.
