Step into Italian Luxury...
only steps away from the center of Como.

On the water yet only a 5 minute lakeside stroll from Como's central piazza, Villa Gallietta is one of Lake Como's most unique and historic Luxury Villas. A 3 year renovation, finished in 2009, has restored the full artful splendor of 1772 while adding modern conveniences such as air conditioning, elevator, full gym, yoga studio, hi-speed internet, and more.

One of the famous "Seven Sisters of Como", La Gallietta is filled with frescoes (such as the one displayed below by Andrea Appiani, Italy's most famous neo-classical artist) and is the subject of a novel written in 1856 by French author Nathalie Comtesse.

Few villas match Galliettas' opulence and perhaps none can offer the proximity to the center of Como. Whether basking in the luxury of this 19,000 sq. ft mansion, strolling to the medieval center of Como, or boating from the backyard on one of Europe's most beautiful lakes- your best ideals of vacation life in Italy are realized here.
