Linking Past & Present

Artist Erika Trojer recognizes and finds value in old and discarded things. Passionate about preservation, restoration and salvaging unusual materials and objects, she deftly imparts new life and significance to things at the end of their cycle through her fine art. 

And in a rather poetic tribute to historical preservation, this luxury villa in Lake Como may be her biggest canvas of all.  

This ancient former shelter for quarry workers has been elegantly restored in an architectural integration designed to highlight the innate beauty of both old and new. 

Carefully preserving the identity of the original stone structure, the team crafted a seamless modern renovation in continuity with the historic aspects of the building. The result is a harmonious juxtaposition of time and place that links the extraordinary beauty of the site with the bygone essence of the structure through natural modern design.   

And like a sentinel rising above the lake and the medieval village of Torno below, both will stand the test of time.

Description

Nestled into the mountain ridge above the town of Torno and surrounded by conservation land, this luxury villa for rent in Lake Como is located in a supremely private spot with breathtaking views of the southern most portion of the lake. 

Grafting an ancient stone structure and quarry to a newly remodeled wing, the restoration uses natural materials and a monochromatic palette to integrate the two.

The relationship between the living spaces and the historic aspects of the building were given priority, with earthy materials used in a contemporary way to impart a sense of tradition.  

The original structure was preserved with an annex built on top, and an expansive new wing with massive windows facing the garden and the surrounding landscape.

The main living room features sliding glass doors that lead out to an adjoining terrace overlooking the spectacular lake views.

The kitchen was built into the old stone remnants and features a fireplace and dining area, and there are four en suite bedrooms tucked away upstairs in the building’s rustic stone and timber eaves.

The basement’s illuminated rock interiors are all history, with the giant boulders serving to remind you that this was once a quarry, and have been transformed into a chic and relaxing wellness area with a bio-sauna and Turkish bath.

The lush terraced gardens include a hot tub, hot and cold water showers, and a relaxation area from where you can gawk at the amazing views.

ADDITIONAL FEATURES

Wifi throughout, LG OLED satellite TV and 4K HDR Dolby cinema screen with Netflix and Amazon Prime streaming service, decoder, DVD, Bluetooth enabled stereo system. Kitchen and bath amenities, laundry facilities.

Please note that parking is below the villa with a flight of stairs that require good mobility (there is a porter to bring your luggage).

AROUND

For centuries this exclusive enclave has been a celebrated destination for royalty, aristocrats and celebrities to play and enjoy the unparalleled beauty of Italy’s northern lake region. Based at the foothills of the Alps and offering dramatic scenery of the surrounding mountains and the crystal clear waters, Lake Como’s iconic character and natural beauty are uniquely atmospheric and impressive. 

The medieval village of Torno sits at the tip of a promontory at the southern end of the lake a few miles north of Como and a short boat ride or drive from Bellagio. The picturesque, car-free village is crossed by a tangle of alleys at the historic center where you’ll discover the ancient and well preserved churches, piazzas and architecture.

Dotted with charming villages and spectacular villas along both legs of the lake, the eponymous town of Como is at the southern most tip of the western branch. The busy waterfront city has a long history and orbits around the “centro storico” old town, with picturesque piazzas and historic duomos, cafes and a more lively urban feel. 

A great launching spot for exploring the region, the ferries are the best way to take in the many lake vistas and visit the famed towns of Bellagio, Tremezzo, and Varenna.

    Not only is Villa Torno one of the most stunning places I have ever stayed, but the views were some of the most swoon worthy as well. Erika, the host 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.

    It was a wonderful four days in an amazing place where where in harmony are history, nature and modern life. Erica and her assistants did everything so that we could enjoy our vacation and not have any worries. It was not difficult for Erica to organize a late dinner on the day of arrival, to buy the products that I requested in advance, since the grocery was closed on the day of arrival and the next day. In the house you will not need anything, every little thing is thought out there, the kitchen has everything you need. Time in this place is slow, and it’s great! Arriving once you will definitely want to come back!

  • Mihir, July 20, 2019

    Erika’s place is the most perfect home in Lake Como. The place is extremely beautiful and full of high quality design and art works. It is quiet and the surrounded nature gives you a positive energy, very relaxing with the most stunning views of overlooking mountains surrounded by beautiful lake…Erika was very accommodating and very quick to respond with any questions… Best place at all to stay in Lake Como… Me and my friends will definitely love to visit again

  • Qin, June 20, 2019

    My family has chosen to celebrate my nephew’s 18th birthday at Erika’s place, and this was a great choice. The view was amazing and the house is very stylish. Erika is also a great host, and has arranged her staff to help us with check-in and check-out. Thank you Erika, my nephew said he would remember this birthday forever.

    If you are searching for La Dolce Vita, your search is finally over. Villa Torno surpassed our wildest expectations. Erika has created an incredible villa for friends and family to share beautiful moments together. It is set on a beautiful plot of land that delivers stunning views of Lake Como while still providing privacy. Every detail was thought of during our stay, from arrival to departure. Villa Torno is in a fantastic location on the lake with easy access to the popular locations like Bellagio and Villa d’Este. I cannot recommend Villa Torno highly enough and I will definite back.

  • Achta, April 23, 2019

    Forget about any of the 5-star hotel of the area and just go to Villa Torno!! This is simply one of the best place we’ve seen/been across our trips around the world. The view is outstanding and the villa is simply fabulous with amazing decoration, designed by Erika herself! We had a warm welcoming and a nice basket for Easter. Erika was also very supportive in booking restaurant for us for Easter Sunday. Everything was so simple and easy, it was a perfect stay. We will definitely stay there again on our next trip to Lago di Como. Thank you Erika!

  • Leslie, September 3, 2018

    This villa is even more spectacular than the website presents. Every detail has been considered to ensure a truly 5 star experience. Erika is the perfect host and Christina who checked us in was so helpful and resourceful – nothing was too much trouble. We also enjoyed being surrounded by Erika’s artworks – her creative talent was evident inside and outside the home. This is an exceptional property. Highly recommended.

  • Alissa, June 12, 2018

    Incredible. A kind of home everyone is dreaming to design for themselves but either lacks determination or sense of style. In this place you will find it all. An ever changing horizon where Lake Como and surrounding mountains come alive in different light during morning, day and night. Here it seems you can spend days gazing, getting lost in time. Landscape design is immaculate. And the house just wraps itself around you like something comfortable that our busy minds are always yearning for but can never seem to arrive at. Here you can experience how the time stops. And you can be sure it will. Erika and her husband are beautiful people, it was fun to meet them. What a beautiful gift they are bringing to the world by letting travelers stay at this place.

    What can I say about Erika’s Villa Torno? It is an absolutely amazing place owned by an absolutely amazing person! Absolutely stunning Villa with breath taking views! I stayed at Villa Torno for a week with my wife, 2 kids and a nanny. We are looking to design/build our own home and came to Villa Torno for some design inspiration. We were lucky enough to spend some time with Erika who showed us her artwork throughout the Villa and her design concepts in building Villa Torno! Erika is an exceptional host and was very responsive to any and all of our requests. Everything at Villa Torno is of the highest quality and with superior 5 star quality. We had requested chef services from Erika who arranged Simona and Giovanni. They are a truly amazing couple that made our stay at Villa Torno even more exceptional. Anyone not requesting their services is going to miss out on a super fun trip me. We had great food, great laughs and great times at Villa Torno with our new friends! We have stayed at Lake Como before in Villa d’Este and Villa Torno is a great option to hotel rooms, especially for families and privacy. This has been an amazing vacation from every aspect .. the property, the services, and the best view in Lake Como! Grazie Mille to my new friends and we will return soon for more amazing times!

    As amazing as the photos look, the altitude of the villa itself and the resulting unbelievable view mean this house is an absolute treasure. It truly is amazing and well worth the money. The interior design is beautiful but the location and view are breath-taking. Erika was fantastic as a host as was Cristina who met us and looked after us. Both incredibly accommodating which obviously makes for an even more rewarding vacation. We can’t recommend this place highly enough.

    The place Erika has created is magical. It offers an amazing retreat for a family or a group of friends in a modern, yet authentic style, set in the middle of this beautiful nature. Villa Torno offers spectacular views, a beautiful garden, with loads of outdoor space and tranquility, all amenities (from Sauna, to outdoor whirlpool and grill, to a fully equipped top end kitchen with a fireplace). All put together with that special attention to detail. The tasteful design ideas in and around the house make this a totally unique place, complemented with Erika’s art throughout the house. A place you will thoroughly enjoy. We certainly did. I recommend Villa Torno to anyone who is looking for this rare combination of boutique design, down to earth luxury,relaxed atmosphere and personal hospitality.
