From its unique position on a promontory jutting out into the lake, La Corte del Lago affords its guests unobstructed views of the lake’s shimmering water and majestic mountains. The extensive park is lush with stately, shady trees and a trickling fountain, while the outdoor pool complete with loungers and tables is the ideal spot to luxuriate in Lake Como’s temperate microclimate. Extended families will gather for al fresco, family-style feasts on the lakefront terrace with its ample seating, gas grill and the shade of the retractable awning.
Inside, the period features of this mid-19th century villa and elegant classical décor integrate seamlessly with the 21st-century creature comforts like satellite TVs, high-speed Internet and the elevator to the first floor. The aspiring chefs in your party will love the tricked-out kitchen with a breakfast table for quick bites and kids’ meals. The ground floor has ample living, dining and recreational space for families and groups to congregate and still find a quiet corner for contemplation. And the seven bedrooms upstairs, three twin rooms and four queen rooms, are furnished with period antiques and fine linens, each with their own bath or shower room. We know the large upstairs study will be a welcome gathering place – or escape! – with its lake views, step-out balcony, comfortable workstation and satellite TV.
And if you are looking to host an elegant lakeside event, to hire a personal chef or to experience the area’s best guides, private boat tours and family-friendly adventures, the destination specialists at IC Bellagio are just a phone call away.
