Built in complete liberty style by Scottish barons towards the end of 1800 on the sparkling waters of Lake Garda, this luxury villa rental has undergone a fabulous restoration which made it one of the most attractive Italian holiday lakefront villas. Restored and restyled in the most modern way through a home automation system throughout the whole property, it features a heated swimming pool indoors as well as outdoors.
It boasts a cinema, sauna, wellness area, gym equipment, cellar, and billiard room.
But still, the charm of the nineteenth century remained and is recognizable by the external noble structure as well as the ground floor entrance, which opens into a large living room where you can find in the centre a large window that frames the image of the lake. While standing on the romantic furnished terrace you can admire the amazing view of the lake at its best.
Near the villa, one can find Punta San Vigilio, a peninsula to visit for its beautiful natural scenery and even closer to the villa there is la Baia delle Sirene (Bay of the Mermaids). It is one of the most popular and appreciated places on Lake Garda. During the years, these incredible landscapes hosted many poets, and illustrious and noble characters, such as the king of Naples, Alexander the Emperor of Russia, and Prince Charles of England, together with personalities like Winston Churchill, the scientist Otto Hahn, actor Laurence Olivier, actress Vivien Leigh and painter Edith Junghans loved these magical places, admired by Goethe, struck by the unparalleled beauty of the landscape.
The sleeping area is divided into two floors; on the first floor, there are four elegantly furnished rooms, brightly lit by large windows overlooking the lake. On the upper floor, the attic, there are five bedrooms that are simple in both furnishing and materials used during the renovation. All bedrooms have a private bathroom. This sleeping area is ideal for accommodating children or extra guests, up to eight people.
The final touch is on the semi-basement floor, particularly suitable for rentals during the low season. The billiard room, the indoor heated pool with Jacuzzi, the wellness area, the gym equipment, and a home cinema will be much appreciated in case of bad weather.
In front of the villa, bordering the lake, a private pier gives the possibility to have a taxi boat just in front of the house.

How would you rate this property?: This property is immaculate and was expertly equipped to handle all needs. The owner and staff were very responsive and were so knowledgeable of the area and local services, which made planning an event there very simple. I can’t recommend the caterer/decorator (Le Gemme di Artemisia) provided by the villa owner enough. Lara and her staff were helpful for months leading up to and through our stay.
From the time of booking until we left. The owner, Daniel, understood that we wished to use the villa for a wedding ceremony and reception and both he and Home in Italy were so helpful from the very beginning. We were introduced to Lara at Le Gemme di Artemisia and she and her partner were extremely accommodating and made sure we had the food, decorations, florals, and services we needed to make our wedding flawless. Outside of our wedding, Home in Italy and the Villa ensured our stay was amazing. They set up transportation for us and our guests and thought of everything we could need. Daniel went as far as to spray for mosquitoes the night before our wedding to ensure there would be no issues with bugs. The pool, grounds, and private beach were stunning and offered unparalleled privacy. This was truly a stay where you could tell owner and Home in Italy thought of everything possible to make sure we were happy.
Thank you so much for reaching out and all the assistance before and during our stay. It was a great experience
How would you rate Home in Italy services?: I would highly rate Home in Italy Services. Everyone was super responsive to any requests and were very prompt in getting answers and checking to make sure everything was up to our standards.
In general, do you prefer to have the check-in day possible on any day of the week? If so, which one: Saturday check-in was reasonable for us. Friday or Saturday check-in would both work well.
Comments: Our stay was amazing
