Large Lakefront villa with private pool and garden, beautiful views and total privacy, sleeps 15
Waterfront villa with private pool, large garden, and stunning views. Sleeps 15 in 6 bedrooms plus an open loft area, with 5 bathrooms. Designed by famous architect, Bruno Fedrigolli, in the late 60s, villa Elena is a living tribute to modern art and design, filled with unique one off artistic masterpieces. In this villa you will find optimum comfort in vintage designer style, large and bright open spaces and big green swathes of garden with ancient olive trees. The villa is filled with extraordinary unique and original pieces that tell a story of modern art in Italy. There is a bed designed and crafted by Arnaldo Pomodoro, bronze and plexiglass sculptures by Marco Lodolo, and marble sculpted masterpieces by Michele Chiossi.
The villa is organised into 3 distinct parts, each usable as an independent house, while still being connected to the rest of the villa, so ideal for multiple families on holiday together. The “main” villa is most recently rennovated, while the “second” part and the apartment are original of the period.
The villa is about 400m down the road from the Port of Torchio, in Manerba, with 2 excellent restaurants as well as a bar/gelateria and a boat rentals company. There is a marina just 100m from the villa, where we have a boat mooring for a boat up to 7m reserved for the villa. The village of Montinelle, with various shops, restaurants and services is about 1.5km away. At the tip of the peninsula, just 200m from the villa, you will find the water bridge to the Isola dei Conigli, a park and natural preserve great for picnics. On the other side, you will find the Pisenze beach just under Rocca di Manerba, with an SUP (stand up paddle canoes) centre and a wonderful restaurant on the beach of Pisenze. There are also various trekking tracks taking you up the Rocca di Manerba, an archaeological park with fabulous ruins as well as a nature preserve.
