Embedded into the rockface of the Monte Besbino mountains, is a stunning home overlooking the crystalline waters of Lake Como. Perhaps one of the most awe-dropping locations in Lombardy, this sustainably-conceptualised villa is an idyllic spot for restoration and discovery. Designed to showcase the natural landscape, glass walls let you appreciate the panoramic views across the golden mile. Wake up with the lake’s dancing reflections on your bedroom ceiling before stepping out onto the upper garden for a revitalising, morning yoga session, taking in the Breva winds. Mornings can also be spent poolside - turn on the massage streams for a relaxing spa-like treatment, or if you’re looking to be invigorated, make use of the counter-current feature for swim practice. Either way, reward yourself on the loungers perfectly positioned for maximum mountain views. This villa combines eco-friendly principles with contemporary charm - think modern, energy-efficient appliances, naturally-sourced materials, and a herbaceous, organic garden. The cosy L-shaped sofa and long, sleek dining table invite you to create memories inside during the cooler months whilst allowing you to feel the immensity of the landscape thanks to the wide expanses of glass. If you can pull yourself away from your rockside retreat, explore the lakeside delights and restaurants of Como, a twenty-minute drive away. Or, arrange a picturesque boat tour up to Bellagio for a day winding around the cobbled lanes, a cultural stop exploring the gardens of Villa Serbelloni Park and a lakefront lunch at Ristorante Terrazza Barchetta.
