Visit Lake Como: Villa Monastero

My dear friends, my tour to rediscover the villas of Lake Como continues! Lately, I have been trying to spend my days off visiting the beauties of Lake Como, taking family, and friends, or even going alone to take my mind off everything. 

Today I was in Varenna, a very famous village on the Lecco shore in the lake center. In summer it receives many tourists and is quite crowded, but it conserves its romantic and charming vibes in its cobbled streets, preserving jewels such as the precious Villa Monastero

As its name implies, the villa was founded as a women's monastery at the end of the 12th century, and it belonged to numerous owners over the following years, who turned it into an elegant residence. The precious furnishings can still be seen today in the 14 rooms open to the public. This was possible thanks to the De Marchi family, who donated the villa to the state in 1939 so that it could become a public asset and a museum

The Villa is surrounded by a park stretching 2 km along the coast, with more than 900 exotic and native species, making it a true Botanical Garden. Flowers, plants, and trees are accompanied by decorative structures, small temples, and stone caves, creating a very elegant and special combination. Perfectly nestled between the blue and green of Lake Como, Villa Monastero strikes a balance between art and nature to make me feel in an inimitable and unique place.
I am fascinated to stroll calmly through the garden amidst its scents and with a magnificent view of Lake Como, and then reach the House Museum filled with paintings, tapestries, furniture and frames of inlaid wood and gilded stucco. 


The Villa shows itself at its best in the summer season but is open all year round with reduced opening hours.
