About Ekaterina Kisina

After we have retired from the textile business, I and my husband first came to Laglio in 2000 after a series of coincidences led me to this quiete wonderfull and very special and quite village.We bought and restored this amasing property and since than we have been spending here up to 6 months each year.We have decided to rent out our beautifull home Villa Castiglioni so that you can enjoy the wonderful life here in Lake Como area.

Ekaterina Kisina purchased this apartment in 2005

Why Ekaterina Kisina chose Laglio

Villa Castiglioni is considered to be the most beautiful villa in Laglio. It is not as big as many other villas here , but it has its charm and it is full of light the whole year around, even during the winter months.And what a scenery! Sometimes it seems to be a decoration to a romantic opera with all these small villages on the other shore of the Lake . This is really a dream home and I am very lucky to be able to get it ...

What makes this apartment unique

I fall in love with this property immediately, nevertheless we got it in a terrible condition, the villa has been abandoned for 35 years! After the owner, a wealthy developer from Milan ,has dyed , the heirs could not divide the property and lacked to pay the taxes.... it took us 3 years to restore the property to its actual condition. It is very private, elegant and comfortable... and the location is just great: you are close to everything any sophisticated traveler desires: art, nature,good weather, excellent restaurants and wine bars, sports, theater, music , great shopping... you have all this at your fingertips.

This place is unspeakably beautiful!

  • 5 of 5

The villa sits on a hill overlooking Lake Como. The villa is well appointed with a modern kitchen and bathrooms. The views outside are spectacular. Katrina was the perfect hostess even filling the fridge with food and wine we had requested. We’d stay there again in a heartbeat! Loved every minute!

A very special place in a special area.

  • 5 of 5

This villa on lake Como is very special. The way this villa has been restored, updated and cared for is simply incredible. The grounds were beautiful, and anything we could possibly need was in the villa. Our hosts were very helpful, friendly and genuinely cared about our comfort and enjoyment. Inside the villa, the furnishings were really nice and comfortable. The views of the lake from all the windows were just amazing. Lake Como is truly a magical place and this villa makes enjoying it special

Convenient central location to explore all the lake region has to offer.

In life you get what you pay for. This was worth every penny for a truly special experience. Highly recommend it, and we will return.

What an amazing stay, far better than the pictures show

  • 5 of 5

What an amazing stay. Next time we’re coming for a week. Our host was sensational, the home the most beautiful villa imagineable, widely considered to be better than George Cluny’s villa (that is 500m away).

This property accommodated or family of 6 perfectly! It is truly a special place to stay. It’s more beautiful than the pictures. Furnishings are high quality, beds comfortable and an overall feeling of class and elegance. The view of Lake Como is AMAZING! Hindsight, we wish we had hired a chef and enjoyed eating right on our deck. Ekaterina was gracious and very informative. We highly suggest renting a boat and enjoy the lake. Thank you for making our Holiday special! We’d love to return someday!

Exactly as pictured. The views of the lake could not be any better! It's high up on the hill so you have unobstructed views. Katerina could not have been nicer. She checked in with us frequently to see if we needed anything and even made dinner reservations for us the night we arrived. She also helped call a taxi the day we were leaving. I definitely recommend a car. The main street is very narrow and busy with traffic. But it is possible to walk on. And there was a bus that went through. With such a beautiful setting we didn't feel the need to leave the house our last day there. We just enjoyed the view!
