About Us


On the western shore of Lake Como, set in its own parkland, sits Villa Giuseppina, one of the greatest legendary properties of Lake Como, the most fashionable lake in Europe. The mansion has hosted royalty and VIPs in utter discretion through the decades and has recently undergone a multi-million dollar refurbishment led by designers from a well-known Milan fashion house.

Villa Giuseppina has its own private dock and helipad on Villa grounds. Milan and Lugano airports are accessible in 15-20 minutes by helicopter from the Villa. Fly in and float out across the Lake, visit Northern Italy’s gems or just relax in its greatest Villa.

Villa Giuseppina was built at the end of 1888, following the architectural and aesthetics canons of the Bella Époque period. The Villa was placed in the center of the ground under the shadow of a centennial acacia and looking directly across to the famous town of Bellagio to enjoy the magnificent Lake Como landscape.

The Villa boasts a magnificent garden of precious trees and plants like camphor, ginkgo biloba, acacia, beech trees, and centennial olive trees in a terrace set up.The Villa’s private parkland and pool have once-in-a-lifetime views, and the terraces around the house are as beautifully finished, as they are panoramic.

Villa Giuseppina presents a discrete Liberty style, with some themes taken from the later Decò, which can be appreciated from making use of materials like iron and glass at the veranda, floral motive decorations on the neo-sixteenth century windows and on the circular shape of the gazebo.

The Villa’s recent grand transformation was completed with the vision to create an Italian house that reflects the rich heritage of Lake Como and is able to combine the history and the tradition with the modern comfort.
