Overview

Overlooking Lake Como, Villa The White House, a luxury villa for rent in the Italian northern lakes region, has one of the most beautiful views in Europe. This liberty-style villa has been restored and has an interior space of 1,231 square meters.

This exclusive holiday villa for rent on Lake Como has 8 double bedrooms (6 with bathroom); living room; Lunchroom; kitchen; multimedia room, bar; 2 roof terraces, yoga/wellness room; pool house, and entertainment area. At 881 meters above the lake and without immediate neighbors, the villa is an oasis of tranquility.

The nearest mountain village is only 300 meters away. There you can find a couple of restaurants and it is a perfect base for hiking and mountain biking. Another country close to the cable car in just a few minutes, offers a wide range of restaurants, the villa’s private boat mooring, and a scheduled river taxi service, ideal for exploring all that Lake Como has to offer.

Views from The White Villa are amazing: the sunsets appear golden. These can be enjoyed from the balconies of each bedroom, from the surrounding main terrace of the villa, and from the extraordinary swimming pool with its green roof and infinity pool. The lush garden surrounding the villa is 4.5 hectares large. Villa The White House is located just 75 minutes drive from Milan Malpensa International Airport and 60 minutes from Lugano International Airport.

1st floor (3 double bedrooms)
One suite also overlooks the lake and is joined to another suite facing east by a large shared bathroom. Both suites have balconies overlooking the lake.
A third suite, facing west, also has a balcony to enjoy the mountain views and sunsets. The large bathroom is a lovely space to relax before dinner.

The large suite on the 2nd floor has a view of the southern side of the lake.
A second Suite Umbria also to the south and shares a large bathroom with an East-facing Suite. The 4th Suite has a view of the mountains to the north.
3rd floor
This open space offers different entertainment areas. There are 2 large seating areas to enjoy the various entertainment options (TV, projector, stereo system, and board games). Furthermore, there is a pool table, kitchenette, and w.c. From this floor, there is access to two roof terraces offering splendid views of the lake.
 
There is a last double bedroom, with a private bathroom at the highest point of the house. Accessible from the 3rd floor, the suite enjoys plenty of light and breathtaking views thanks to huge double windows on 2 sides.
 
There is a nice dining room inside the villa and outdoor dining under a pergola on the huge terrace overlooking the lake. Just a few steps from the villa is the 22-meter long heated infinity pool with a Jacuzzi, which offers a 360-degree view of the lake. There is also a well-appointed pool that, with all the full-length windows folded, seems to float on the pool. It has a kitchen, a bar on the island, and a comfortable seating area.
In addition to numerous spots for sunbathing around the pool, there are 2 additional outdoor dining options, taking advantage of the proximity of the pool house kitchen. There is also a dressing room and a toilet carved into the rock face.
Carved into the rock wall is a rather surprising yoga/wellness facility. This large room with stimulating views of the lake can comfortably accommodate 8 yoga practitioners side by side and also includes an area for gym equipment: a system, a rowing machine, an exercise bike, dumbbells, rubber bands, and exercise balls. This room also benefits from a private bathroom, Turkish bath, and shower.

Getting around
The villa has its own luxury boat moored on the lake. Local ferries are very congested in the summer and follow a strict schedule. Consequently, having your own boat allows you to travel in comfort, according to your schedule, and directly where you want to go. This is especially useful when you want to access some of the delicious lakeside restaurants.
