About this Villa

Villa La Cassinella is the most exclusive villa on the romantic and legendary Lago di Como. Short Stays Available.

After a two year restoration, where no expense has been spared, the discriminating traveler will find a haven of tranquility, comfort and refined elegance. This is luxury at its finest with five-star service in a private and secluded environment.

Villa La Cassinella is situated on the western shores of Lake Como, close to the town of Lenno, approximately 20 kilometers north of the town of Como. The villa is accessed by boat only, reaching a landing of stone steps leading through formal gardens with perfectly trimmed cypresses and fountain pool, directly up a short flight of stairs into the villa.

The spacious and well maintained gardens compliment the estate's ideal setting on the edge of Lake Como. Experiencing the breathless views of the Lake from one of the thirty-seven rooms throughout the estate is something to behold.

Villa La Cassinella provides a well-trained and highly professional staff to attend to your every request. The butler, chef and housekeeper reside on the property in separate accommodations.
