Fully Staffed With a Private Chef, and Boat This is the Ultimate in Como
Loved for its beauty, privacy, and exclusivity, Lake Como is known as one of the most coveted holiday destinations in the world.
Sitting on 4.5 acres at 2900 feet above the world-famous lake is the ultra-exclusive Villa Peduzzi. Without any immediate neighbors and panoramic views of both the water and the mountains, this property gives new meaning to the word breathtaking.
The Art Nouveau style building was built in 1909 and sprawls over 13,250 square feet of living space which includes 9 bedrooms, a yoga and wellness room, pool house and entertainment area.
While privacy and luxury are the cornerstones of a property of this magnitude, the heart of the experience at Villa Peduzzi are its views.
Every bedroom has a balcony and the ones which are south-facing enjoy an extraordinary combination of mountain and lake view. There is a grand terrace on the property, a grass roof deck on the pool house and an infinity pool, once again all designed to take in the surrounding landscape. Even the yoga and wellness room has been designed to take in the view—it’s carved into a cliff face along with the bar and entertainment areas to ensure this.
While the facade of this villa keeps true to its Art Nouveau architecture, the interiors are an ode to sublime, modern elegance.
With its use of clean, light woods for furniture and cabinetry which sits amidst smooth, geometric lines and a neutral palette softened through the use of light colored, airy textiles and upholstery, this villa is sumptuous yet never feels overdone. Amidst this modernity, however, are nods to Italian artisanal heritage seen in moments such as traditional colorful mosaic-tiled floor motifs or subdued, yet masterful, mouldings.
In order to fully experience the luxury of effortlessness, the villa is fully staffed which includes a private chef, an in-villa manager, caretaker, and boat captain (the last of which leads the villa’s own private boat).
If the peace of seclusion should need to be accompanied by the excitement of experience, the villa has many options on offer. From classic car adventures, to hiking and biking, to cooking classes and shopping tours, there are many ways to fill time while staying at Villa Peduzzi.
Although, when a hospitality industry scion gives a property not their own a glowing review as the founder of Aman Resorts, Adrian Zecha, did for Villa Peduzzi here, that’s when you know you’ve found the rarest of gems.
