Vacation like a star at the newly built Villa Sissi. Set in the Aureggio neighborhood of the town of Bellagio—long a holiday favorite among the glamorous and famous—this luxury vacation rental boasts panoramic views of Lake Como worthy of a Hollywood set. Four bedrooms and a spacious open floor plan let you enjoy this private retreat and its lake and mountain vistas with the whole family or a group of friends. Bask in the area’s famously mild climate on a lounge chair on the lawn or take in the views from the pool and hot tub facing the lake. A shaded terrace has a foosball table for hours of entertainment and an al-fresco dining area for relaxed meals in a gorgeous setting. Inside, Villa Sissi has all the modern conveniences you’d expect, from satellite television and a sound system to Wi-Fi. The villa draws its inspiration from both traditional mountain lodges and contemporary Italian design. A stone exterior, peaked roof and red tile are both charming and classic, while inside, the peaked ceiling lends an airy aspect to the open-plan great room. Both the cream-colored sectional in the sitting area and the cream and orange chairs in the dining area face a wall of sliding glass doors—the television is mounted off to the side—to put the emphasis on the views. The fully equipped kitchen has sleek flat-fronted white cabinets and a convenient breakfast bar. A white and orange color scheme lends warmth and vibrance to the four bedrooms.
