Join ESCAPE TO SHAPE on an exclusive & magical journey to majestic Lake Como- long considered one of the most beautiful lakes in the world. Home to breathtaking historical villas, lush botanical gardens, charming streets and magnificent natural beauty- from the deep blue of the lake to the vibrant green on the surrounding alpines, the unparalleled beauty of this location is sure to inspire our yoga classes, outdoor circuit training classes and hikes. Join us and experience the magnificent charm of this unique region, which has inspired writers such as Hemingway, Twain and Dostoevsky throughout the ages: a combination of a glorious lake, mountains, Italian history & food, charming lakeside villages and breathtaking natural beauty. Along with the cultural and natural wonders of the region, cooking classes, shopping & cultural surprises all compliment this unique getaway.
While at Lake Como, ESCAPE TO SHAPE offer guests the rare opportunity to stay in an exclusive 19th century villa set on five acres of private extensive gardens- complete with a swimming pool, tennis courts and unparalleled views of majestic Lake Como, as well as the beautiful mountains just across the lake- truly inspiring views for twice daily physique 57 classes!
The interior of the villa is spacious, with shining floors and a sweeping staircase. Recently restored, our ‘home away from home’ in Lake Como maintains its traditional elegant, grand atmosphere- full of family antiques, expansive dining tables & lots of natural light.
Each bedroom is unique, decorated in a traditional style, with en suite modern bathrooms, air conditioning, luxurious linens and amenities.
Ideally located on Lake Como, minutes away from the charming town of Menaggio, perfectly situated for hiking, private boat trips to explore the beauty & charm of Lake Como, shopping and unique dining experiences. A stay in this private villa is an experience in and of itself.
Please note that this is a villa, and not a hotel, therefore some rooms are more spacious than others, and likewise some rooms have better views than others. Rooms will be assigned on a first come, first served basis. All rooms are comfortable and well appointed, decorated in a traditional Old Italian style.
Share: $4500 per person based on two people sharing a room. We can pair you with a roommate if traveling solo.
Private: $6000 for a private room

WELLNESS ACTIVITIES: Yoga, circuit training & hiking
I went to Cartagena last fall with Escape to Shape and loved it. It was a great vacation that allowed me to have fun, keep in shape and relax in an incredible place. The best part of the trip was the amazing villa that we got to stay in. It truly made me feel like one of those people on Vh1’s “The fabulous life of the rich and famous”. I was in a huge villa in the center of the walled in city with a staff that catered to my every need. The best part of this all- inclusive vacation was that I could choose how to spend my time. They offered a wide array of activities but didn’t pressure or require you to take part in any of them. If you wanted to do yoga you could but if instead you wanted to sit on the terrace sunbathing or take a dip in the pool or hot tub you could. The owners have a great understanding of what it means to be on vacation and it leads to everyone having a great time.DCtravelman August 2012
