Villa Edera is an exclusive luxury villa for rent in Italy offering a nineteenth-century atmosphere, located on the western shore of Lake Como. The beautiful English garden starts at the back of this delightful holiday home rental and continues all the way up to the public road that separates the villa from the lake. Not far from the villa there is a large parking and a private dock for boats.
At the villa, located on three floors, seems that the time has stopped; decorated with flowered tapestries, mosaic floors, turned wooden stairs and late nineteenth-century paintings create a romantic and somewhat austere atmosphere. All rooms have a small safe and are equipped with air conditioning, Wi-Fi and satellite TV.
The beautiful, fully fenced in park was conceived as an English garden in the mid-nineteenth century and preserves secular plants of enchanting beauty. There are many gardens on the shores of Lake Como born as Italian gardens and later turned into English gardens, but only two of these were born as such; the splendid park of Villa Edera and the park of Villa Melzi in Bellagio. Acorns, redwoods, cork oaks, magnolias, Chilean peaches, Japanese cedars and bamboo are just some of the most beautiful and rare botanical specimens that can be admired in this park. Within this small botanical paradise, you can find a small vegetable garden with several fruit and vegetable trees, at guests’ disposal. In another outdoor area, a safe and secure playground is available for the fun of the youngest guests.
A few meters from the villa, there is a swimming pool with a heated outdoor shower. In addition to the pool, the villa has an illuminated tennis court, a table tennis table, a football table and an American billiard table.
Villa Edera is located ninety kilometres from the airport Milan – Malpensa, just over one hundred kilometres from Milan Linate airport and 120 kilometres from the Bergamo Orio al Serio airport. Como is about a forty kilometres distance, while Bellagio can be reached by ferry from Griante, only twelve kilometres distant from the villa.

“We were a family of eighteen people; two grandparents, three set of parents & ten children between three & sixteen years old. We had the time of our lives. The Villa Edera is a lovely, big & cosy house, well build, well designed & very well kept. We had all our meals but two lunches in the house, either in the beautiful big dining room or outside at the veranda, weather permitting. The meals was deliciously prepared by Cesare the cook & the menu ordered every day before it was to be served, & as everyone in the party fancied Italian food, it was what we got. Everybody enjoyed the entertainment facilities of the house, the table tennis, the billiard, the tennis lawn, the beautiful & luxurious pool-area, & the space of the wonderful garden. One day we had app. 100 mm. rain, it proved no problem because of the size of the house, there was always a room or an outside covered corner wheron could relax. Two days were reserved for sightseeing sailing on the Lake Como with lunch breaks in Varenna & Lenno, which we are happy to recommend. The Villa Edera was fully staffed with very efficient & friendly house cleaners & gardeners, our bedrooms & bathrooms were wonderfully made up every morning. Everything was perfectly supervised by the very kind & helpful key holder Daniela, who was both the first & last person we saw at the villa, always ready with information, advice, bookings, transport, foraging of the wine cellar etc. Villa Edera we can give our very best recommendation!”
