Villa Serena, also known as BRV SER, is a 6-bedroom villa in the Lake Regions, located just a 10-minute walk from Torno, 6 kilometers from Como and Cernobbio, 31 kilometers form Bellaggio, 61 kilometers from the Milan Malpensa Airport, and 76 kilometers from the Milan Linate Airport.
Villa BRV SER is 1 of 2 spectacular villas on the Estate Il Cigno on the shore of Lake Como. Along with its sister property, Villa BRV MAR, both properties offer stunning views of the lake, and have recently been luxuriously restored and refurbished. The villas can be rented separately or together.
Estate Il Cigno is located down a gated road, guarded by a quaint gatehouse, in the midst of nearly 3 hectares of beautiful gardens and woods. The property enjoys spectacular views of Lake Como. The 2 residences are separated by a historic harbor flanked by ancient terracotta statues. From the property’s park, guests can exit through a private gate and enter the Lake Shore Village with its charming square, 17th century church, and garden with a lovely pergola.
Villa BRV SER offers a frescoed entrance hall, a reading room with TV, and a library with fireplace. The dining room has a frescoed salon, a double fireplace, and access to the terrace. The kitchen on this level is well equipped. On the roof level is a frescoed cupola with a central balcony.
This villa sleeps 12 people. Three bedrooms are located on the garden level, while 3 more bedrooms are situated on the roof level. Two garden-level bedrooms each feature a library, fireplace, dressing room, ensuite bathroom, and balcony overlooking the lake. The third garden-level bedroom offers a courtyard view and adjacent bathroom. The roof level bedrooms have ensuite bathrooms. Guest staff can be hosted in gatehouse apartments at an extra charge.
This air-conditioned villa also comes with a piano, satellite TV, WiFi, and a communal pool, which is shared with Villa Maria. A boat and 10-seat Cessna Caravan seaplane taxi are available to rent. The Grand Hotel Villa d'Este on the opposite shore offers its facilities, including golf, tennis, and fitness areas, to guests (additional charges apply). The price listed is for Villa BRV SER only.
