Top Secret

Walking over the threshold of this property is like entering somewhere magical. With an elegant garage, stunning design, and a beguiling atrium of a glass-like bridge, this villa will take your breath away, and make you want to stay!


In 1922 the Cranchi family started its first boat yard in Griante, named Nautica Cantiere Cranchi where the family built boats for almost a century. In 2014 the yard went through a complete 3-year renovation to become a high-end luxury villa that was renamed Breakwater. The typical characteristics of the industrial boatyard have been preserved making the Breakwater a one of a kind property on the lake.

The Review

The villa has a unique waterfront position on the lake, facing the town of Bellagio, on Como Lake. Located in the Lombardy region of Northern Italy and hugely popular with celebrities and the ‘rich-and-famous’, Lake Como is a gorgeous destination, with a myriad of activities available, as well as gorgeous Italian cuisine, and luxurious surroundings.

Featuring only premium facilities, and state of the art design and technology, Breakwater Villa is the ideal location for up to fourteen discerning guests to enjoy the Italian ‘dolce vita’.

The expansive luxury residence, spanning 1,900 square metres, boasts an impressive array of facilities both indoors and outdoors, paired with incredible views over the beautiful Lake Como. Boasting a lakeside heated swimming pool, ample decked terrace on both the ground and first floors, as well as several al fresco dining and seating areas, this villa is perfect for hosting an event, or organising a celebration. Breakwater also features a private docking space which is incredibly convenient if guests wish to hire a boat during their stay.

Luxury is what defines the interior, which, spanning across three levels, features everything guests can need for a relaxing stay. Showcasing deluxe spa facilities, expansive dining and living areas with picturesque lake views, an impressive library, a home cinema with Apple TV, a fitness/gym area and an office. With glorious panoramic views of the lake, and an almost rustic feel to the villa, Breakwater features a neutral colour scheme, with wooden, earthy tones accentuating the kitchen worktops, and many wall panels and floors, merging perfectly with the landscape behind, to a grey and white colour scheme through the bedrooms, this magnificent villa maintains an industrial minimalism, but with a home-away-from-home feel. Contemporary design, modern amenities, state of the art bathrooms and perfectly selected art works and furniture ensure that guests feel completely at ease, with high end luxury in a villa full of charm and character.
