The Lakes

Melite The Lakes


Melite is a graceful villa with a classic design and a very favorable position on Lake Como.

This waterfront beauty offers fantastic views from most of its rooms as well as from the front terrace. The traditional interiors are decorated with heirloom antiques combined with contemporary color palettes to create a welcoming and vibrant atmosphere. A sparkling heated swimming pool, with a sliding roof for the cooler days, and the private direct access to the lake are features that will add great value to your experience.

Ideal for large groups requesting generous space for lounging and dining, Melite is a “modern classic” villa, the perfect stage for your everlasting memories. Do not miss the opportunity to stroll on the narrow public boardwalk that runs between the fence of the villa and the lake shore and reach the small village nearby (5 minutes walking) with its shops, restaurants and bars.


Ground Floor

The spacious and bright formal dining room with lake views can seat comfortably up to 14 guests and opens via beautiful French doors onto the sunny terrace. The adjacent commercial-grade kitchen is fully equipped for the cooking enthusiasts in your group. A corner living room features plush sofas where to relax watching TV or reading your spellbinding book, and an office corner, inclusive of PC, printer, fax and scanner, is also available if work is something you cannot leave behind. A game room with a ping-pong table and two guest’s bathrooms complete this floor.

Outside Features

The generous and well maintained outdoor retreat area showcases the private swimming pool (5m x 8m x 1.10m) that can be lit and enjoyed also at night. Here also a paved area where a long table is set for dining al fresco. Sunbeds are available to be positioned in the lounge area on the landscaped lawn to enjoy open breathtaking views of the Lake. All is perfect for family and friends entertaining!

Guest Reviews

of Melite
The villa is super spacious and the photos …
Kristen M. • July 2018

The villa is super spacious and the photos don’t do it justice. Alfresco dining! Welcome dinner was a wonderful amenity and delicious! AC in the bedrooms. Incredible views of the lake! The French doors open up to the lake letting in great breezes. Other than the kitchen which is gorgeous no issues without full ac. Just take a dip in the amazing pool before cooking or better yet hire the chef more often. The back yard opens to the gate to Lake Como. The young adults walked to get Gelato and to town to the pub. We took the ferries to other towns on Lake Como- 10 to 30 minutes depending on stops.

Daniella the manager stopped each day assisted with ferry schedules, restaurant reservations, got sparklers, anything we asked. Pool/grounds keeper kept things pristine. Pool cover easy to operate and Mario took care of it as needed. Housekeepers where friendly and superb. Ample parking. An amazing and memorable adventure!

(We renting this villa with the guidance of villa specialist Sue Matthews for a very small wedding for my daughter. It was a small, private and spectacular event!)
