About Villa Ausacium

Natural and architectural beauty combine for your attention at Villa Ausacium. This stately residence is an iconic architectural masterpiece enhanced by its iconic Lake Como setting. Sitting in Ossuccio,  Villa Ausacium imperiously dominates the basin of Comacina, and benefits from views out to the famous island at its centre.

The villa was commissioned by the Leoni family and designed by the master of Italian Rationalism, Pietro Lingeri. Built between 1941 and 1944, it is considered a defining expression of this style and protected as such by the Italian Ministry of Culture.

The layout of the house takes full advantage of its position. The entrance, living areas and main bedrooms all face the lake. Fitted with large windows they maximise the views. The lower ground floor houses an entertainment room and a spa area with sauna and hot tub.

The villa is surrounded by extensive tree-filled grounds. There are numerous seating areas to soak up the atmosphere from and a dining pergola for twelve people to feast on the lake views. A patio is accessed from the entrance hall, while two terraces offer views of the island from different perspectives. A heated infinity pool’s waters reflect the sheer class of this villa. The parterre and its gazebo is perfect for an evening aperitivo as you watch the sunset over the crystalline waters of the lake.

Villa Ausacium is a defining architectural statement that never forgets that Lake Como is, first and foremost, an idyllic retreat for serene living. Like the graceful waters, it’s elegance personified.
