Villa Sant'Anna is an historic property located in Argegno on the western shore of beautiful Lake Como between Laglio and Tremezzo. The fully-restored villa sleeps nine guests on three levels plus an independent house accommodating up to four additional guests.
A wealthy industrial family from Milan built Villa Sant'Anna in 1911 in Argegno, a picturesque holiday resort on the west shore of Lake Como. The villa is in a sunny, elevated position, with a stunning view of the lake.
Due to its stunning location, from the villa one can see from the headland of Bellagio to the north pre-Alps and as far as Nesso to the south. Just in front of the villa there is the classic S. Sisinnio church. A very romantic spot available for catholic weddings or ceremonies. S. Sisinnio church has been represented in a Winston Churchill water color painted from the garden of the Villa.
The house and garden has been fully restored in 2005, preserving all the ancient details and materials. Marble and terracotta floors, doors, ironworks, decoration are original of 1911. Antique furniture, paintings and statues create a very exclusive atmosphere. A pedestrian road of roman origin leads from the villa to the village of Argegno and the lake, by a 800 meter walking path at a height of 80 meters. The village of Argegno (280 mts above sea level) is situated in a large, sunny inlet on the western shore of lake Como, between Laglio, where George Clooney's house is located and Tremezzo.
Argegno is one of the most favorite destinations for tourists on Lake Como. It has a pleasant climate and it is mild even in the winter months. The village has Roman origins proven by the stone bridge on the Telo stream that dates to the era. The ancient center of the village is very picturesque. A good number of restaurants, a bar, a coffee shop and pubs, attract tourists from all over the western shore of the lake. Hydrofoil and tourist boats connect Argegno to Como and other main interest points.
