Dominating from the top of its 880 meters of altitude, Aquila Reale has a breathtaking view of part of the lake up to the Swiss Alps. The villa, originally a medieval watchtower, which was transformed in the early 1900s into an impressive summer vacation home, is nowadays a quintessence of contemporary luxury. Inside the villa you can feel the brightness of the rooms and the soft colors, as well as the space; nine bedrooms with lake view, 7 bathrooms in white marble, very spacious living areas, to alternate with a living room on the upper floor for more relaxing atmospheres.
All the rooms have been made homogeneous in color and style of the furniture, tailor made and in perfect chromatic harmony with the ceiling frescoes, made in 1900. The refinement of many details inside the villa is an expression of refined simplicity. The same can be found in the pool house and in the aspect of the infinity pool that looks almost suspended above the lake.
The lush garden, of 4.5 acres, is immersed in total tranquility, yet the nearest town on a 300 meter distance from the villa can be reached on foot.
The advantage of Aquila Reale is that at 500 meter distance from the villa, you can take the funicular to reach Argegno in four minutes, a pretty village situated directly on lake Como. Argegno provides a wide range of restaurants, the villa’s private mooring and a scheduled river taxi service, ideal for exploring all the places that lake Como has to offer.
