Cremia villa description

'Dreamer's House' (Villa Sognatore) is a true lakefront property located ten kilometers north of Menaggio outside the small hamlet of San Vito on the coveted northwest shore of Lake Como.

The house uniquely positions its guests directly on the lake in a natural setting and provides private access to the water, which is the best place to acquaint oneself with the beauty and tranquility that makes Lake Como so unforgettable.

The setting is a botanical paradise since the property is surrounded by beautiful, well-maintained, terracing gardens with mature specimen plants, palm trees, flowering shrubs & trees, and perennials. The property includes four stone patios at different heights (including a BBQ area with stone table and benches, immersed in a rock garden), and two large terraces off the living room and main bedrooms on the lakeside of the house, all affording breathtaking views of Lake Como and the surrounding Alps and pre-Alps.

A scenic walkway on the lake passes near the property, giving the guest walking access to two restaurants and two bars in the lakeside village of San Vito. A third restaurant can be accessed with a short walk north along the lake road to Pianello.

Inside the house, the top floor consists of a large room combining the living and dining rooms and a large eat-in kitchen with island, plus a bathroom with mosaic tiles and modern Italian design. In the living room, the wall facing the lake is only windows, with double doors opening to a large terrace with sweeping panoramas. There is a satellite TV system with news/movies/sports in English or Italian, as well as terrestrial TV with mostly Italian channels. A multi-region DVD player (plays codes 1-6) has been added.

The middle floor is composed of master and guest bedrooms, both with two single beds that can be combined to form a double-size bed with new mattresses. Each room features large picture windows with lake & mountain views and terrace access. There is a third small room with a small bed and baby crib (the house actually sleeps 7 + 1 baby). The bathroom includes shower, bidet/toilet, and double vanity. Both bedrooms open onto a large middle terrace, where stairs lead down to the lawn and lakefront. Here there is a detached 'mini casa' guest house with two single beds and half bath.

The mini casa opens onto a large stone patio two meters (6 ft.) from the lake, featuring 4 Italian designer chaise lounge chairs. There are private stairs leading from the stone ledge into the lake (child soft safety fence is optional).

The property is entered by an electronic gate that leads down into a covered car port with one space reserved for the house (additional parking available on street above). From there stairs lead down through gardens to a stone patio with table and benches suitable for barbecuing with a magnificent view of lake, mountains, surrounding specimen plants and rock garden.

The properties on the left and right of the house are vacation houses NOT rented by their owners. Therefore, the owner kindly requests that common courtesy is observed when these neighbors are present. In addition, this is a no pet and no smoking (inside) environment. Children are welcome, and the house is baby-equipped with high chair, crib, tub, and linens.

Additional location information: by car (highly recommended - closest bus stop c. 300 meters), ten minutes from Menaggio (a fashionable main resort in the central lake area that is a hub for ferry, bus, speed and cruise boat connections), Villa Carlotta-Tremezzo 20 minutes, Varenna (Villa Cipressi) and Bellagio (Villa Melzi) 30 minutes via ferry, Colico 45 minutes, Como one hour, Lugano one hour, Milan city center one-and-one-half hours, Milan Malpensa/Linate airports one-and-one-half hours, Bergamo two hours, Saint Moritz two hours, Verona & Zurich three hours, Venice four hours, and Florence four hours.

Information on restaurants (two within walking distance), shopping, hiking trails, and public villas available on request from the owner, who frequently visits the area.

Detail on the unique position of the house: the house is at the bottom of a sloping hill leading into the lake, and therefore is separated a good distance from the nearest road above both by height and length because the 200 sq. meters of gardens and terraces stand between the back of the house and the road (many lakefront houses are built up too close to the road and have to suffer endless road noise and lights; other 'lakefront' properties either have access to the lake through a public beach in front or have no lake access at all!). A set of lighted, well-maintained stone stairs with railing winds through the gardens and terraces to the house approx. 25 meters (100 ft) below the road (see picture link for more details).

The front of the house on the lake provides complete serenity, including stone patios and a lush grass yard, since it is separated further from the mainland by the building superstructure itself. The view across the lake is 2.5 km of open space, giving one a complete 180+ degree view of the lake, pre-Alps, small Alpine and lakeside villages on the opposite shore (Corenno Plinio (including a fully preserved medieval castle), Dervio, Dorio etc), and - further in the distance - the towering Italian/Swiss Bernina Alps. Please see photos on linked website for more detail.

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2003

                      About the owner: My wife Corina and I discovered Lake Como in the year 2000, and have been visiting the area every year, several times a year, since then. We've lived in Central & Eastern Europe since 1997 and have explored the area as much as we could. We insure that all of our guests benefit from our 14-years + extensive knowledge of Lake Como and surroundings, including our 'Useful Information' and 'Dining Guide' documents for all confirmed guests. The Dreamers' House is our only rental property, and judging by our 11+ years of renting experience and guest feedback, it clearly lives up to its name.

                      Why the Owner Chose Cremia:
                      We believe that beautiful, natural landscapes bring tranquility to the human soul. Why else would people have visited Lake Como for over 2,000 years ! Our occupation has taken us all over the world, but the first morning we woke up on Lake Como, we knew it was a very special place. Endowed with the refined Italian lifestyle, it has so many treasures to offer the visitor, including grand villas open to the public, magnificient gardens, nearly all water sports including boating, extensive hiking trails leading to stupendous vistas, and great cuisine and shopping.

                      The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
                      Lake Como ends in our front yard, so it is not possible to get any closer to the water, whether you want to swim or boat there (we have a buoy 25 yards in front of the house and there are several boat rental companies around the lake we can recommend, with no license needed), or whether you just want to enjoy the ever-changing views and activity of the lake, pre-Alps and Alps. At the same time, thanks to a new lakefront walking path, you can walk along the lake (and avoid the lake road) to the small hamlet of San Vito and enjoy a casual meal of pizza & pasta at Pizzeria Lumin, or a more indulgent meal at Restaurant La Baia, both right on the lake shore. A third dining option, Veranda Beach Cafe, is a 20 minute walk up the lakeshore in Pianello.
