Among our luxury vacation villas in Italy, Felce is an exclusive gem overlooking the undulating shores of Lake Como.
At the top of the village of Torno, this prestigious holiday home dominates the lake from almost a height of 600 meters. Originally a small stone ruin built next to a rock quarry, Felce has been expanded and renovated into a villa for 6 guests, with modern and functional contemporarily design furniture. The lower floor boasts a suggestive relaxation room with a sauna/Turkish bath built on the rock. Felce with its unique location allows clean air and a breathtaking view.
The partially fenced in garden has two parking spaces at the entrance. From there, in order to reach the villa you need to go up a steep path, therefore this property is not recommended for guests with mobility problems and high heels would become a dangerous weapon. The private garden offers an area for meditation and a furnished lounge area for outdoor relaxation. The drive up to the property is rather steep, so a medium-capacity SUV is recommended.
From the villa, Como is reachable in more or less ten minutes either by car or by boat. You can reach the lake on foot which will take you approximately ten minutes; walking downhill through narrow streets, passing houses, until you reach a lovely little square which overlooks the lake, and where you can have an aperitif or have a delicious dinner at the restaurant.
Golf lovers can reach Villa d’Este Golf Club in approximately thirty minutes by car. The Lugano and Milan airports are about an hour away from the villa.

"We loved staying at Villa Felce! The house is beautiful and the view is amazing. We spent time relaxing at the house and enjoying the view, and also had wonderful afternoons exploring the lake via boat and waterskiing. Gio prepared an amazing dinner one night (a highlight!) and we also had two great dinners sitting by the lake at Valpore. Checkin and checkout were super easy, and the house was spotless. I would go back in a heartbeat!"

"Not only is Villa Felce one of the most stunning places I have ever stayed, but the views were some of the most swoon worthy as well. Cristina, the manager was incredible as well. I can't even begin to list out all of the amazing things that made this stay a special one that we will never forget. From the speedy responses, to accommodating our timing of arrival, to the luggage service and all the check in process was fast, easy and painless. We even got a sweat treat upon our arrival. Wifi is fast as well. I will be staying here again, next time with my closest of friends and family. Jose"

"Villa Felceis an amazing place to spend a vacation; it exceeded our expectations in every way. We have stayed in many locations in the area, including some of the top hotels, and Villa Felceis by far our favorite place in the Lake Como area. The villa itself is even more impressive than the pictures on woud suggest. The views are simply stunning, and the interior decoration is tasteful and elegant. The sauna area could be from the set of a movie, with its natural exposed rock juxtaposed against modern materials. The villa is a wondeful mix of old and new that feels very organic and comfortable. It feels more like a boutique hotel than an a luxury villa. We stayed in Villa Felce for most of the month of May. Our party consisted of 11-month old twin boys, their nanny, and my wife and I for the entire period. My 21 year old son and nephew joined us for the last week. Even with all seven people in the villa, it felt spacious and comfortable. After only a few days it felt like home. The staff provided us with two cribs and two high chairs, all set-up and ready to use when we arrived. Home In Italy helped us rent a car, and was a great source of local information. Unfortunately, one of the twins fell ill durig our stay. The staff arranged for a doctor to come to the villa and treat him, complete with a follow-up visit one week later to make sure that he was doing OK. Over the time we were there, we used most of the services, including having the pantry stocked from the local store, and having a chef create meals for us. Cristina (villa manager) was always very responsive and attentive and we never felt that any request we made was too much. At the same time, they did not intrude on our privacy. Most of the time it was just us enjoying the beautiful and tranquil spot that is Villa Felce."
