My name is Peter and I am the owner of Villa Cardano and your host. I bought the Villa in 2014 from its former owners, a well-established family from Milano who had the building over generations in their possession. The building was in a poor condition. So, it took me more than four years to renovated the building and to equip it with all amenities of modern life.
Today the villa is equipped with
When I bought the villa, I realized that it was too big (and too expensive) for one family. Therefore I converted what was once the holiday retreat for one wealthy Italian family into a modern 3-apartment building. While I use with my family the first floor, I rent the other two floors to holiday guests.
We have the studio for 2 guests located at the ground floor. The studio has a direct access to the garden and gardenview.
The other apartment is the penthouse for up to 6 guests on the top floor. The penthouse has three separate rooms (two bedrooms with king size beds and one living room with a convertable sofa which can be also turned into a very comfortbale king size bed), two bathrooms and an additional kitchen with dinner table. All the windows in the penthouse have a panaromic view and the corner bedroom where you wake up with the morning sun over with a view over the city and Lake Como is the highlight of the penthouse.
Both apartements have also access to the roof top terrace which has - also according to locals - the most spectacular view over the city and Lake Como.
I am proud that nearly all of my guests write enthusiastic emails or reviews on AirBnB and that I was awarded right from the beginning with an AirBnB-superhost status which is reserved only to the best hosts.
