Lombardia - Como - BELLAGIO


PRIVATE STRUCTURE (lease only). Villa Ponti Bellavista is a villa with breathtaking views of Lake Como. To capture the spirit of the place, Sig. Fossati, an important Milanese industrialist and post-war owner of the villa, decided to entrust its design to the architects of Domus. It took two years of clever engineering and hard work to build the three-storey building, inspired by the famous Italian architect Gio Ponti. The similarity to a ship, desired by the then owner, is clearly visible in both the curved living areas and the angular cubes of the sleeping area, joined by a wonderful central spiral staircase. The 180° views, of what many consider to be the most beautiful lake in the world, will remain forever etched in your memory. Today the villa belongs to three Australians who have not managed to escape the magnetic force of Lake Como, located less than an hour north of Milan. Thus began the story of a house known today as Villa Ponti Bellavista.


The villa has three floors. The entrance on the ground floor leads, on the right, into the main living area with a beautiful hall, staggered in the fireplace area, and a separate kitchen facing the internal park; on the left side of the villa are two bedrooms, a double with private bathroom with tub and shower and another double with divisible beds and private bathroom with tub and shower. Also on the ground floor is a panoramic terrace overlooking the lake. A wonderful spiral staircase leads down to the lower floor (level -1) with two double bedrooms with lake view, sharing a bathroom with tub and shower, while on the park side are two double bedrooms, with direct access to the garden, both with private bathroom with shower. Completely separated from the property (level -2), is a small apartment where the caretakers live, very discreet people and will not interfere in the guests' privacy.


The approximately 2000 sq m park contains a wide variety of plants and flowers whose fragrance renders the area even more evocative. Splendid cedars and firs surround the villa while on the land side is a beautiful wood perfect for reading and relaxing in. The park extends over several terraces; to the right of the entrance is a bocce court. In front of the pool is a sauna and outdoor hot tub with a spectacular view of Lake Como. Another enchanting spot from where you can admire the beauty of the lake, with the Alps in the background, is the large terrace which is accessible from the immense hall in the living area. Also outside, near the kitchen, is a convenient functional dining area surrounded by nature. Please notice that photos are taken in spring, therefore flower blossoming, and the colours of the gardens' grass could be different at the moment of your arrival at the villa.

Swimming Pool:

The rectangular swimming pool of the property faces the lake, staggered in respect to the level of the villa which is 30 metres away. Measuring 15 x 5 m with a constant depth of 1,20 m, it is lined in white PVC and is purified with salt and sand filtration. Access to the water is via large steps and a steel ladder. The 60 sq m solarium area in porous white stone, standing out against the surrounding green lawn, is equipped with sunbeds and umbrellas and a cold-water solar shower. The positioning of the internal and external lighting allows you to enjoy the pool in the evening and at night as well. The swimming pool is available from the last Saturday in April to the first Saturday in October.

Location and distances

Villa Ponti Bellavista is located just 6 km from Bellagio, not surprisingly known as the pearl of Lake Como, a splendid town located right at the point where the Lario (another name for Lake Como, from the Latin Larius Lacus) divides into its two famous branches. Here you will find picturesque alleys and little shops for shopping enthusiasts. Absolutely worth visiting is Villa Melzi d’Eril, at its most splendid when the rose gardens are in bloom. Lastly, we should also mention the beautiful hamlet of San Giovanni, rather far from the residential area but, by virtue of this distance, a true oasis of peace with an incomparable panorama of the Alps.
