Villa CastelliLake Como, Rezzonico
Villa Castelli is a magnificent luxury villa near to Menaggio on Italy’s famous Lake Como. The villa has looked out over Como’s western shore since the early 1900s with the next-door castle dating back to the 14th century. The real pearl of this villa are the stunning and unspoiled views of the lake from every room.
The lake and pebbled beach are just a few minutes’ walk away with the village centre of Rezzonico and a lovely restaurant also nearby. A 10-minute drive brings you to the heart of the well-known town of Menaggio.
Villa Castelli has been extensively restored over recent years and has resulted in a luxurious, high-end holiday villa. Although with lots of modern touches, features such as original floor tiles in many of the rooms are a lovely reminder of the villa’s past and heritage. A new swimming pool has also been added in the beautiful gardens with magnificent views over the lake and mountains.
The villa sleeps up to 12 guests over 5 bedroom suites and is well suited to larger groups with children. The ground floor is host to the first bedroom – it has twin beds and ensuite bathroom with large walk-in shower. Head upstairs to three double bedrooms, all ensuite with walk-in showers and all with lake views.
As well as the four bedrooms, there’s a snug attic room too that sleeps four. It’s ideal for children as the four beds are all single and it is possible to add a fifth, smaller pull-out bed on request. This one is strictly for children. The highlight of the attic is the play area, making the space feel like a tucked-away, secret part of the villa where children can play (and be free of the grown-ups!). There’s a bathroom here too.
Downstairs, enjoy getting everyone together in the open-plan living/dining area. There’s plenty of space for everyone and a fully equipped kitchen, a perfect place to try your hand at some local lake dishes.
Doors lead outside to the terrace, a perfect spot to watch the boats bob on the water as you enjoy breakfast in the sun or to set up the sunset barbecue and gaze over the lake and mountains beyond.
Step down to the wonderful gardens and relax poolside with a spritz, play games with the kids or simply cool off during sun soaked afternoons – the pool has great exposure and is furnished with sun loungers and parasols.
Bedrooms and bathrooms
In total, there are three double rooms, a twin room and a double-twin. There are 5 bathrooms, 4 of which are ensuite. The 5th bathroom is upstairs in the play room.

Located overlooking Lake Como’s western shore, Villa Castelli is located in the small lakeside town of Rezzonico and just a 10 minute drive to the busier, larger town of Menaggio. Here, jump a ferry across the lake to nearby and equally as well-known Belaggio.
The lake and pebbled beach are just a few minutes’ walk away with the village centre of Rezzonico nearby. The village itself is a true hidden gem, away from the busier areas of Lake Como. It’s largely traffic free, offering real tranquility and there is a wonderful Pizzeria and Trattoria just a stone’s throw from the villa.
There are plenty of wonderful places within driving distance, giving you a real taste of this wonderful area. For the more adventurous, Lake Como offers a great selection of water sports and if you fancy something a little slower, try a sunset lake cruise.
The centre of Como itself is just under an hour away by car and should certainly be on the list for a day trip. It’s bustling with shops, bars and restaurants and with historical sights, water sports and hiking trails all nearby, you’ll have plenty to do.
