Overview of Villa Sonni

What Oliver loves…

  • There are wonderful views of Lake Como, Bellagio and the mountains.
  • Guests can enjoy the best local wines in the atmospheric wine cellar.
  • The music system allows guests to play tunes throughout the house, and all rooms have independent controls.

What you should know…

  • Pets are allowed on a request basis, so check with the owner in advance.
  • There is not much power in the shower.

The beautiful Villa Sonni overlooks the “Pearl of Lario” (the local name for Bellagio, which certainly lives up to its name!) and each and every corner of this amazing property has been designed and finished to the highest quality, assuring its guests a fantastically comfortable stay. From the wine cellar on the ground floor to a kitchen so well-equipped it would satisfy even the most discerning chef, from the pool area surrounded by a perfectly manicured garden to the flat-screen TV with a wide selection of satellite channels and a villa-wide sound system – the owners of Villa Sonni have gone above and beyond to make sure that your every whim is catered for at this magnificent property.

And that's before we even get to the view - and it's one that dreams are really made of. Whether you look west towards Tremezzo, East towards the Grigne Mountain range or due north for that picture-postcard view of Bellagio’s iconic promontory and all the three branches of Lake Como. You even get the Alps rising majestically in the background! It's pretty much impossible to drag yourself away from the terrace, whether you are enjoying a meal al fresco or simply relaxing in one of the sun loungers!

In addition to having the most amazing views and creature comforts, this beautiful property is also brilliantly located for those looking to get out and about and explore the area. With the very efficient local boat service just an easy five-minute drive down the hill in the heart of Bellagio’s historical center, exploring the lake from your villa home base couldn't be easier. For those looking to head further afield, you can be in Lecco in just 35 minutes or in Como in just 45 minutes, with Milan, Bergamo and Lugano (in Switzerland!) all within an easy 90 minute drive.

For those times when you don’t have chef service at the property, you could be sitting down in one of three local restaurants or pizzerias, eating some of the best brioche you’ll ever taste at the pastry store or mingling with the locals at the bar and small grocery store within an easy 2-minute drive. Of course, the historical center of Bellagio also boasts a wide range of stores, bars, restaurants and pizzerias to choose from - the lakes are your oyster!

Interior & Grounds

First Floor:

On the First Floor – which can be easily accessed from the garden and the pool area as well as an external stairway – you'll find the dining room, the well-equipped kitchen (stocked with some fun cookbooks from different regions in Italy) and the living room with its beautiful lake views. On this floor there's also a double bedroom (king bed) and private bathroom complete with shower, sink and toilet, one twin-bedded room and private bathroom complete with shower, sink and toilet, as well as an additional powder room for day use. The elegant covered terrace on this floor (found at the front of the villa) can be easily accessed from the living room and the double bedroom. The pool area can be easily accessed from the garden, the double bedroom and the twin bedded room, as well as the external staircase from the ground floor.

Second Floor:

The Second Floor is accessed by an internal stairway in the living room. Here you'll find two bedrooms each with their own private bathroom complete with shower, toilet and sink, as well as a separate storage area for your luggage. On the landing, you will find the stereo system and a small work corner where laptops can be connected to the broadband line. The swimming pool is for the exclusive use of the guests at the villa and is the perfect place to begin your day taking in those breathtaking views as you enjoy a little morning exercise – the area around the pool is furnished to the highest standard with sun loungers, sun umbrellas and small tables, too. The garden surrounding the villa is well-maintained, while the botanists among us will be delighted to hear that most of the flowers in the garden are local varieties and typical of this area.

Lower/Ground Floor:

On the lower floor is the gym, containing a traditional Turkish sauna, the fitness corner, a bathroom complete with shower, toilet and sink, a laundry room with everything you need to wash, dry and iron your laundry, as well as a well-stocked cantina featuring some of the country’s most popular wines.

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.

The beautiful Villa Sonni, overlooking the town of Bellagio, is the perfect spot for guests to immerse themselves in an unforgettable Italian experience. It is the most magical place for a timeless and unique experience.

The large outdoor terrace with views as far north as the Alps is the perfect location to enjoy spectacular views while eating al fresco. Bellagio has numerous beautiful villas and gardens, facilities and excursions, and the villages scattered on the lake shores are within easy access.

For the city lovers, Como and Lecco are both within an easy 45 minutes drive of the Villa while Milan and Bergamo are only 1.5 hours drive away. Guests who prefer walking can head into the hills behind Villa Sonni. This area offers some wonderful walking, hiking and mountain biking options that should not be missed.

Milan itself opens up an array of possibilities. Visit Leonardo Da Vinci’s Last Supper and 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.
