Among the best luxury vacation villas to rent in the Como lake area and in Italy, Il Cantiere is one of the most modern and exclusive in its style.
Overlooking the west arm of Lake Como, near the village Griante, an old shipyard has been masterfully transformed into a luxurious, contemporary design villa of undisputed, aesthetic taste. Il Cantiere is an extraordinary holiday villa furnished with the finest modern Italian furnishings on a surface of 1.900 square meters divided into three floors and terraces. The contemporary industrial style recalls the history of the original building, where once an Italian family built boats during the twentieth century.
Six of the seven bedrooms have a wonderful view of the lake, seen through large French windows. These French windows lead to secluded, private terraces, and to the spacious terrace of 350 square meters, furnished with BBQ, various seats on a wooden floor, giving you the impression of being on a boat in the middle of the lake.
In order to make your holiday more enjoyable, this villa offers a large gym with well known Technogym machines, a spa with a Turkish bath, a sauna and a massage room. A state-of-the-art home entertainment and automation systems, a cinema room, a well-stocked cellar and a cosy African inspired cigar/snug room complete the comforts of this villa.
The rigorous style without bright colours highlights the brightness of the lake. The ground floor of the villa is a mixture of shadow and light: accessing the living areas, you pass through the central room furnished with a billiard table, to reach the living room, the dining room and the kitchen. In this passage, every room takes on lighter tones, to emphasize the lake.
Due to the fact that the villa has various areas not suitable for children (for example some unprotected internal stairs, a low wall around the pool), it is not recommended for children between 2 and 8 years old, unless accompanied by babysitters.
Discover the magic of the Lake in exclusive style aboard the marvellous Zodiac boat. Tell your captain where you want to go and watch the lake must-sees, hidden gems and villas.

"We had an amazing time on holiday. Lake Como is stunning and we could not have picked a better place to stay than ll Cantiere It was magical. The staff there were fantastic.
Your concierge service was also fantastic so thankyou for everything that you did. The only slight criticism was that the driver on the return journey to Milan did not seem to know where he was going. But we got there in the end. The driver we had on our journey from Malpensa to Como was brilliant. We'll definitely use Home in Italy again".
