Located directly on Lake Como, not far away from the worldwide famous Villa Melzi d’Eril, Villa Carlotta and Villa Balbianello, Villa Ametista is a few minutes away from the marvelous shopping centre of Bellagio, also known as The Pearl of The Lake, and just half an hour by car away from the renowned Menaggio Golf Club. The international Milano Malpensa airport, the Milan Linate airport and the Lugano airport are within 90 minutes drive.
Villa Ametista is an outstanding late 19th century three floor villa, offering exceptional levels of luxury and service. This water front property offers an amazing view not only on the lake, but also on the snow-capped Alps.
Villa Ametista is surrounded by an exclusive botanical garden offering rare and centenary trees, amazing colors and scents for an unforgettable reverie. A new heated pool has been built recently.
The mansion was originally built in 1891 and, at that time, it was considered extremely innovative. Always been a private residence, Villa Ametista has seen four generations of the same family inhabit its rooms: a family with a passion for culture, style and pure luxury, the evidence being the sophisticated collections positioned in the rooms and lounges, and especially the dedicated museum on the second floor.
Villa Ametista is directly accessible by car but also by boat, thanks to two private entrances. A separate building house, fifty meters from the Villa can easily accommodate a staff up to six people.
The big terrace on the ground floor has an impressive 180-degree view on the lake and the mountains, and the private swimming pool offers the chance to truly admire the landscape while relaxing in pure peace. The terrace also offers a comfortable sitting room, but also two wide lounges with huge windows facing the lake. Details make the difference: the gorgeous marble fireplace, the long tail piano, the Murano chandeliers, the luxurious paintings, the dark oak boiserie, typical of the Gabriele D’Annunzio romantic early 20th century style, the Venetian silk wallpapers, the walnut coffered ceiling.
The main dining room of Villa Ametista can easily accommodate up to twenty guests: an ideal location for a private party. The villa also offers a game room, with two card tables and a beautiful lighting for late-night games.
The way to the first floor can be made through the main staircase or through the secondary service stairs: there, a huge oak library welcomes the guests, with its nearly thirty thousand rare and antique books embracing many topics of the human knowledge.
On the first floor are located the biggest and most comfortable suites of Villa Ametista: one facing the lake via a wide terrace, one with its windows on the southern side of the botanical garden, one on the northern and very peaceful side of the garden, one right in from of a giant Lebanon Cedar… all finely restored, all with dedicated bathroom.
Villa Ametista is a treasure to be discovered, and possibly one of the most beautiful luxury villas for rent in Bellagio, ideal for sophisticated and very, very classy guests.
