Villa Anna is a delightful 7 bedroom villa with incredible views over Lake Como, boasting extensive gardens and a private pool to enjoy. It's the perfect villa for a large family or group of friends.
Inside, the property is laid out over four floors. On the ground floor, a spacious and welcoming hallway leads to a number of spacious living spaces including a sitting room, separate dining area seating 10-12, a snug area which makes a wonderful family playroom and a small but well equipped kitchen. The snug has a working fireplace making it very popular with those visiting in the cooler Winter months. There is also a WC on this floor. A flight of stairs leads down from this level to a lower ground floor where you will find a double bedroom, shower room, kitchen and small sitting room. It's a popular set up with multi generation family groups with the grandparents opting to take this area in order to enjoy a degree of privacy whilst being part of the wider party. It's also a great space for those travelling with a nanny. Back on the ground floor, a flight of stairs leads up to the first floor where there are 2 double bedrooms each boasting balconies enjoying lake views, as well as another bedroom furnished with bunk beds which also enjoys its own balcony and a single bedroom. These rooms share a bathroom equipped with both bath and shower. It's a great set up for families with children. The top floor of the property is home to two chalet style double bedrooms and a twin bedroom. There is also another bathroom on this floor, again equipped with both bath and shower. Please note that this floor has limited ceiling heights in some areas. The villa is set in extensive private grounds set over several levels. The private swimming pool enjoys a prime position within the garden and enjoys wonderful lake views. There is also an adjacent pool house here, where you will find a kitchen complete with hob, microwave oven and fridge freezer, perfect for storing your drinks and ice and ensuring that you can prepare meals al fresco in this area as well as in the house. There is a WC here too and an outdoor shower for your convenience. A wisteria covered outdoor seating area has a table comfortably seating up to 12 guests. At the very top of the garden is a flat area which is perfect for practising yoga or enjoying some daily exercise.
The villa is set in a quiet, peaceful rural setting. It's an idyllic 10 minute walk through nearby vineyards to reach the nearest village where guests will find a greengrocer, butcher and small village store. This is where you'll find an authentic slice of Italy, away from the tourists and surrounded by welcoming locals. However, it's just a 10 minute drive to the lakeside from where you can catch a ferry to one of Lake Como's most popular lakeside towns - Bellagio - or you can choose to drive there in just 15 minutes. For those staying in the Winter months, it's just a 40 minute drive to the nearest ski slopes. These are particularly good for families with young children with sledging facilities also available. Alternatively, for the serious skiers, some of the best Swiss ski resorts are also easily accessible from the villa including St Moritz (2 hours 15 minutes).
