Villa Aura del Lago
An exclusive private residence fully equipped for a holiday stay while hosting your wedding event
During the 18th century, Villa Aura del Lago was originally known as “Poncetta” – “small cape by the lake” – and was dedicated to the cultivation of wine and to silkworm breeding. More than a century ago, the Villa was bought by Guido Guido (1880–1956), a Milan-based entrepreneur of the silk industry and Knight of the Italian Monarchy. Guido and his wife fell in love with the town of Limonta and with the stunning view that “Poncetta” offered on Lake Como. The Villa has acres of botanical gardens, a swimming pool, unaltered view of Lake Como and the Alpe di Moncodeno.

Rich Family History
While officially living in Milan, the Guido family used to spend long periods of the year in the Villa until World War II when they permanently moved to the Villa, peacefully set away on the quiet peninsula of Lake Como. In a commitment to developing the community, the family opened the home to guests and enacted their family motto: “Preserve with pride the family traditions, and wisely shape the future to make it sustainable for the next generations”. The Villa has 7 bedrooms accommodating up to 14 guests and on the second floor is located the Romantic Suite composed of a living room, an imperial bathroom and a large bedroom. With its 90-square meters, the Suite offers a postcard Lake Como view during all daily hours and an incredible memory for your stay in our Villa.
Botanical park and private pool
Surrounded by a hundred-year-old botanic park and directly overlooking Lake Como with its unique 200-meter-length waterfront, Villa Aura del Lago is an exclusive and elegant property that ensures the highest standards of privacy and comfort. The Villa is perfectly situated in the heart of Lake Como and allows for the exploration of the best Italian surroundings: the romanticism of the town of Bellagio, the metropolitan taste of Milan, the history and traditions of the cities of Bergamo and Lecco, or the beautiful Swiss lakeside town of Lugano.
