Villa Il Gelso offers guests the best of both worlds: a classic early 20th century palace with a recent sleek, state-of-the-art upgrade, a serene village setting with all the must-see sights close by and family-friendly spaces to congregate with plenty of quiet corners to contemplate. Stay in Villa Il Gelso and find out what it’s like to have Lake Como literally at your feet.



Gorgeous Villa Il Gelso sits right at the water’s edge with Lake Como literally lapping at its feet. Ideally located in the fishing village of Lezzeno, guests can be enjoying a polenta meal at a mountain chalet, shopping on Bellagio’s elegant cobbled lanes or cruising across the shimmering waters to historic and cultural sights in only a few minutes. Of course, with the villa’s picturesque setting, panoramic pool and private pebble beach, we would understand if you’d rather stay put!

Spread across three floors, Villa Il Gelso’s accommodations and living spaces feature sleek contemporary décor that compliments original features like period fireplaces and make the most of the Lake Como views. A spacious open-plan living/dining room, a state-of-the-art kitchen and a half bath are on the main floor at lake level, along with access to the adjoining garden and pool area. On each of the two upper floors, you’ll find one twin bedroom with its own shower room and one suite with a king bedroom, shower room and private sitting room. One of the sitting rooms offers the convenience of a sofabed for an additional guest.

The well-manicured garden invites guests to relax by the pool on the sun loungers, gather around the stone table under the vine-covered pergola and avail of the private access to the adjoining pebble beach. And if you are looking to host an event, hire a personal chef or experience the area’s best guides, private boat tours and family-friendly adventures, the destination specialists at IC Bellagio are just a phone call away.
