Arguably the most unique villa on Lake Como

Spread across three acres of verdant cedar forest and gardens, this 1966-built luxury villa in Lake Como exudes privacy and nature, with plenty of opportunities for family gatherings or wellness retreats.

Bellavista was designed in collaboration with the iconic Italian architect Gio Ponti, designer of Milan’s Pirelli tower, and during the post-war boom of ocean liners, elegant naval interiors. You’ll see his nautical passion throughout, especially in the wall of curving windows that offer 180-degree views of both the Lake and Grigna mountain range, replete with original midcentury furnishings including an original Formanova dining table and Arturo Alvarez designer lighting. Other highlights are a sunken, Mad Men-esque sunken conversation lounge surrounding a grand fireplace, and a 1960s original spiral staircase.

This home is perfect for entertaining: the kitchen has a brass and bespoke cherry wood island, pink marble flooring and a Smeg oven, and there is both a garden and a lake terrace for enjoying meals among panoramic views. For gathering ingredients, the pristine grounds have an organic vegetable, fruit and herb garden. And an infinity-edge pool invites languid swims, followed by a contemplation in the sauna or soak in the hot tub. Recreation can also be found in the original restored bocce ball court.

Ponti Bellavista’s two-bedroom lake view apartment – located in the main house but with a separate entrance – is perfect for staff or teenagers, topping off all the reasons that this home is truly a design-lover or entertainer’s dream on Lake Como.
