BOATYARD 013113-CIM-00002

Griante | Sleeps 14

An unexpected, contemporary look for an old 1922 construction site, completely renovated and transformed into a stunning luxury villa.


Directly on the waterfront with a magnificent view of Bellagio, Varenna and the mountains surrounding the lake - from Lecco up to Colico - the villa is completely hidden and extremely private... absolutely unique.

The access to the villa is through a dark black garage with a futuristic glass walkway, while the heart of the house is light-filled: huge glass windows, tailor-made designed interior and furniture with décor materials (such as wood, concrete, glass) … every detail in this villa contributes to make this property exclusive and completely different from the “traditional” historical villas dotting the lake shore.

The Bellagio promontory is enjoyed from every corner of the property: from the living areas to the suites located on the first floor. Especially suggestive is the contrast between its shaded areas and the brightness provided by the huge windows facing the lake.

All the rooms have a fresh, airy and light look and feeling, and each of them has a peculiar view of the lake.
A panoramic lake view can be enjoyed also from the garden surrounding the swimming pool, as well as from the roof terrace on the first floor.
… or one can walk down to the private dock and take the property's Zodiac dinghy on a personalized tour on the lake itself.


The OUTDOOR AREA is characterized by
• garden
• heated swimming pool
• fire pit
• boat dock
• al fresco dining area
• chill-out areas
• BBQ area
• roof terraces

The villa is seated on 3 floors and the floors are connected by lift and stairs.

The floors has different levels and each level is reached by few stairs.


In the kitchen area the different floor levels requires particular attention: near the stairs connecting the living area with the kitchen area a big chair has been placed to avoid risks (e.g. guests distracted by the beauty of the lake could fall down).


In the cinema room, the presence of few hunting trophies (hung on the walls) could not be appreciated by the most sensible persons. In case, this room can be kept closed by thick black curtains.



There are few areas which are dangerous for small children, therefore the owner took some precautions as follows: only when there are very small children, in order to avoid kids to go up stairs, the owner will put gates on the stairs, both in front of them and one on side.

The pool is not fenced and the access to the lake is delimited by a very low wall.
