Period properties for sale on Lake Como from €1.75m
At the lower end of the range are apartments in period villas or smaller period properties. There are surprisingly few converted period villas and most conversions are poorly designed; it takes patience to find those that will please our international clients.
The best value is obtained from buying a villa requiring complete modernisation and then having this undertaken for you. It is unusual to find a villa which has been maintained to the standards our clients expect, so do not be surprised if you need to update the kitchens and bathrooms.
Finding a period property in a sunny position with a good degree of privacy and limited traffic noise is the challenge we take on for most clients. It is quite likely that there will be no public advertising of the property and we rely on our strong local network to unearth these opportunities. And remember that most period villas were built in a period of considerable wealth, so smaller homes are less common.
