Villa Jovita is a superior dwelling perched above south western shores of Lake Como overlooking its charming island, Comacina. Built by a local family with gastronomical and hospitality prestige, this cutting-edge abode blends the best of an independent home along with hotel-grade services. An architectural masterpiece of modernist structure and sleek, unfussy interiors, it offers seamless comfort with proximity to some of the jewels of the lake region.

The chic, contemporary exterior in slate greys optimises natural daylight with floor-to-ceiling glass at every turn and natural interplay between indoor and outdoor living. Making use of local cherry wood and serpentine stone, the interiors at Villa Jovita are both home-like and ultra-stylish. The vibrant living space is back-lit with a skylight, featuring understated, yet elegant, décor with accents of aqua off-setting the neutral palette. Lake views are the focal point of this airy space, while in the evening the modern fireplace comes into its own. Reclining at the end of the day overlooking the lake as the fire crackles will be a pleasure, in a space that artfully fuses old and new. 

The four master bedrooms and two standard rooms are set across the first and ground floors, each with its own plasma screen and bathroom. Finessed to a high standard, with crisp linen and luxe bathrooms, the master bedrooms have either lake or island views. One of them has an extra glamorous touch with free-standing bath tub; another has terrace access. The outdoor spaces blend with the contemporary-chic tone of this home, with long-length infinity pool and lake views, internal herb fragrant courtyard and jacuzzi with lake views for a rock-and-roll touch - outdoor living is executed with panache. 

Just four kilometres to the superb partner hotel complex at Tremezzo, this home is ideally located for fine dining spots scattered around the Sala Comacina section of the lake. Nestled within the Zoca de L’Oli, an inlet that takes its name from the calm waters (said to be smooth as olive oil), the old-town at Sala Comacina offers narrow alleyways, small bridges and historic architecture, as well as a pretty harbour. The island of Comacina can be reached by ferry. Featured in several films, the island also has a history that dates back to Roman times. Ossuccio village is just a few minutes east, with a small yet historic centre, while circa 50 minutes away (15 km, including ferry), on a small cape visitors can reach Bellagio, a beautiful and colourful waterfront town considered the pearl of Como. 

Villa Jovita is set overlooking a glamorous stretch of lake, with endless choice of eateries, and impressive residences such as the Villa Balbianello (location for Star Wars 2), while offering comfort and seclusion within a peerless home.

  • Truly Phenomenal!

    on 30/09/2021

    We stayed a couple of beautiful September days at Villa Jovita. The house, the views, the place were exceptional - even better then the pictures... But the people of Villa Jovita were the most special, the excellent cooking, the service and friendliness.... Note: the house is of such a great design and high standard that we would immediately want to move in... We had a truly phenomenal experience!
