A fine example of art nouveau architecture, Villa Pigra sits at 881m and overlooks Lake Como, the valleys and the surrounding snow-capped mountains.

Built in 1909, it has been renovated to the highest standards offering 1,231 square metres of living space. The chic zen interiors are sleek and minimalist and set off the truly breathtaking views.

With no immediate neighbours it is an oasis of calm, set near to the pretty village of Pigra, which has a few restaurants, a tennis court and its own cable car station which runs down to Argengo and the villa’s private boat and mooring.

This is a perfect place for hiking or mountain biking and six mountain bikes are available at the house.

The villa sits on a sprawling 4.5 acres of alpine gardens with a roof garden terrace on top of the pool house – the perfect sunbathing spot.

The main house terrace, and the poolside, offer wonderful al-fresco dining opportunities.

Little ones can be entertained in the playground and treehouse area.

The house comes fully staffed and with the indispensable addition of a boat with a captain for exploring the lake.
