3 Persons, 2 Beds, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bathroom

Paradise views never forgotten!

Boasting romantic central lake views and easy access to the many lake highlights, this modern luxury 2 bed holiday home is perfect for couples or small groups of up to 3.

The luxury residence is situated just a 1 minute drive from Varenna, along the main lake road of Fiumelatte and is located within the former grounds of Villa Capoana. The past grandeur of the Duke of Mount Marciano’s retreat can still be enjoyed today from its original features which have remained unchanged, such as the natural phenomenon of the Fuime-latte River and the impressive Rococo classical style grotto fountain, which still has the ability to impress today.

Guests can either reach the apartment from the streel level flight of stairs (by going 1 floor up) or via the stairs from the private garage (by going 2 floors up).

Internally, a spacious and stylish living space with a contemporary fitted kitchen greets guests. The double aspect lake view living and dining area provides a fabulous area in which to relax and unwind. Home comforts include a SAT flat screen TV with DVD player, a music stereo and free WIFI to the living area. Double French doors lead from the open plan living space to a fabulous sunny lake view balcony terrace, which provides the perfect sun trap for romantic aperitifs and alfresco dinner parties!

The fully equipped kitchen is also on hand to provide all the desired appliances for preparing delicious home-made meals during your stay.

The spectacular central lake views are truly awe inspiring and include the majestic Menaggio shoreline and the breath taking peninsular of Bellagio. A private back terrace also features to the mountain-view side of the property.

This bright and spacious holiday home further benefits from a large lake view master double bedroom as well as a second single bedroom, ideal for a 3rd guest. A newly fitted contemporary bathroom with power shower, wash basin with vanity area, WC, bidet, universal shaver plug and hairdryer also features. For added convenience a washer dryer and clothes horse is also provided.

Outside, the surroundings are truly sublime. The original Villa Capoana which once stood here was constructed in 1605 for the Duke of Mount Marciano.

Today, the grounds of the exclusive modern lake view residence retain many original features of the historical villa, including a stunning monumental shell-laden fountain. Mixing the old with the new, the lake view grounds are perfectly at ease against the timeless lake view backdrop.

Aside from the gorgeous communal features the residence is easily located just a short walk from a grocery shop, restaurant and a convenient train station which offers fast links to Lecco city and onwards to Milan, as well as to neighbouring Varenna.

The picturesque resort town of Varenna is easily reachable on foot and its timeless appeal can be enjoyed throughout your stay with enchanting cobbled streets leading to café-lined squares, charming shops, romantic vistas and lakeside restaurants and walks. The famous botanical gardens of Villa Monastero and the medieval Castello di Vezio are both fascinating attractions to explore and the fast ferry service from the town makes the other famous resorts of Bellagio, Cadenabbia and Menaggio all easily accessible from Varenna.

The wide selection of central lake activities include sailing, cycling, hiking, swimming, power boat hire, quad biking, golf, tennis and canoeing, and complement the beautiful and restful atmosphere of the lake to ensure guests can enjoy the very best that Lake Como has to offer!

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a great experience with the Bella Vita Amore listing. The pictures of the listing don't even do the view justice. Checking in and out was really simple. We trained in to the Fiumelatte station and it was a 2 minute walk from there. There's also a small grocery store two blocks away so we were able to have everything we needed since the apartment has a fridge, dishwasher, bottle opener, etc. The apartment was very clean, nice, had good wifi, and the views were spectacular. The porch is bigger than it appears in the photos and they have chairs to lay out in if the weather is nice. The master bedroom was big and the view from the bedroom was simply amazing. They also have a washer/dryer which was great for a small load of laundry. We walked to Varenna most days (~15-20 min walk), which is a beautiful walk, and from there you have access to the water ferries, great restaurants, and just about everything else you would need. From Varenna, you can get to any part of Lake Como. I'd gladly stay at this listing again.

Incredible views. Perfect apartment!

  • 5 of 5

What a fantastic place to stay. We are a family of 5, and stayed in this beautiful, fully appointed apartment for 3 nights in July. Wish we would have stayed longer. The apartment itself is very clean, decorated really nicely, and has everything that you could need. The views are outstanding!

The little town of Fiumelatte is so charming, and everyone is friendly. We ate at the two restaurants in town, and both were amazing. Especially Osteria del Platano just down the hill. The meal there was incredible. The best we had on our trip! We also went to Crotto de Pino. It was quite a walk (down 86 stairs to get to the street level, then a half mile along the main road away from Varenna, then follow the fork and spoon signs up a beautiful set of stairs, 102 of them, to get to the top of the hill). Bring a flashlight for the walk home. Fabio is fantastic. What a source of entertainment. The food was good, the view amazing, and Fabio the best part of it all.

Make sure to hike up to the source of the Fiumelatte, just incredible! We will be back to this great town, and would love to stay in the same apartment.
