Villa Torno is a luxury villa in a peaceful oasis nestled in an ancient quarry on the shores of Lake Como. Located only 6 km from Como and few steps from the historic center of Torno, is the ideal villa for anyone looking for privacy and tranquillity. No neighbours, no noise, the right place to stop the watch and take "your" real time. 


It is the perfect place for regenerating the mind and experiencing the incomparable beauty of its surroundings: the ancient stone quarry, the restored rustic old stone house, the rock wall, and the spectacular open view of the basin of Lake Como overlooking the rooftops of the village of Torno, one of the most picturesque and characteristic villages on Lake Como.

From within the villa you are immersed in the atmosphere of the lake but from the garden you have a complete and captivating view of it, day and night, both in beautiful weather and in stormy weather. The villa is very private and surrounded by conservation land, wood and rocks. The priority is the relationship between the inside and outside living space. All the traditional materials were used in a contemporary way. Villa Torno is nestled in a park about 5000 square meters, with natural woods and terraced gardens surrounded by the rocks from the ancient quarry. The restoration was done preserving the original structure and materials wherever possible. It was restructured and completed in line with contemporary tastes, system efficiency and comfort.  Erika, the owner of the villa, has decorated the interior with great care,  enriched it by using various pieces of her own art and by pieces of primitive art. This place actually was a quarry where the famous local stone “pietra di Moltrasio” was extracted and used to build many stately homes (and Villa Torno as well in many differents parts of the of the walls and the walkways).

A large living room with sliding glass doors that lead out onto an adjoining terrace and a breathless lake view. 

The kitchen is in the old stone part with a fireplace.

In the basement, there is at guest's disposal a relax area with a unique bio sauna, located among the local rocks found during the restoration works.

The bio sauna permits adjusting the percentage of humidity, choosing to have a typical hard dry Finnish sauna or a Turkish bath.

Take a moment of relaxation for the body and the mind, an alternative appetizer with the friends or a glass of wine enjoying the romantic lake sunset view.

The pool is closed from November, 1st to March 31st.

As the house is in a dominant position above the charming village of Torno, to reach the property you have to pass Torno and take a narrow uphill road of about two minutes. That is why in case you are renting a car, a 4x4 type with automatic transmission is suggested. Once you reach the property, you park inside it and you have a ramp of about 80 steps up to the Villa...the ramp to Paradise! The ramp is indeed the 400 years old  historical way of the “Via di Lizza” (road of the wooden sledges), that the owner Erika proudly preserved (the wooden sledges were held with ropes that the workers wrapped around the posts that lined the path). For this reason, VILLA TORNO IS NOT APPROPRIATE FOR PEOPLE HAVING DISABILITY IN WALKING. Luggage is not a problem as there is always someone who will bring it up to the house on your behalf. During the winter season in the case of heavy snowfall or a storm, it's possible there will be temporary difficulties in reaching the house.
