Property

Updated: 06-Dec-2016
Fabulous luxury getaway sleeps 4, with garden and stunning lake views

A beautiful oasis perfect for romantic getaways!

Enjoying a stunning location with garden views over the picturesque unspoilt village of Faggeto Lario and the serene lakeshore, this fabulous luxury getaway is a real treat for 1 couple or small family group with young children!

The 1 bed property enjoys a clean and tasteful contemporary interior throughout, with a modernist style fully-fitted kitchen with stylish integrated cabinets and providing all the desired appliances for an enjoyable

self-catering stay.

A spacious dining area is furnished with a stylish white round table perfect for holding dinner parties and guests can enjoy dining 'alfresco' with a romantic breakfast or afternoon tea area overlooking the beautiful houses and historical church which all seem to have been painted from an artist's palette, providing a wonderful backdrop to the lakefront views and your stay!

A sunny lawn also provides guests with the opportunity to enjoy a glass of wine overlooking the lake at one of the outdoor dining areas or enjoy a daytime of relaxing under the sun with a good book on one of the sun loungers provided next to the swimming pool, which provides the perfect excuse for further relaxation and enjoyment with stunning views directly over the lake.

The property interior further boasts a chic and tasteful master bedroom furnished with elegant white minimalist furniture and a comfortable double bed. There is also a comfortable double sofa bed in the living area, ideal for one - two young children/young adults in the family (up to the ages of 21).

There is high-speed internet at your disposal, plus an expanding library of DVD's, books, and information and guide books covering the local area. Families will also find a free baby cot and high chair to hand.

A contemporary newly fitted bathroom provides guests with a shower, wash basin, WC and bidet, and is accessible from the living room via the master bedroom.

A private parking space is conveniently included with the rental of the property and the local village amenities are all within walking distance.

The cosmopolitan lake city of Como is just a 20 minute drive south of Faggeto Lario with its elegant cafe-lined piazzas, bustling shopping boulevards, historical central and magnificent Duomo to explore. The tree lined lakefront and park provides the ideal place to leisurely enjoy a relaxed morning or afternoon picnic and the famous Volta museum, historical Spanish Quarter and the palatial Villa Olmo which provides a year round calendar of excellent art exhibitions will keep culture vultures satisfied on day excursions here!

There is also an excellent selection of restaurants and the vibrant nightlife is also well worth experiencing during your stay.

For the best panoramic views of the lake visitors are recommended to take the charming Funicular railway from Como up to the mountainside to Brunate where the perfect photo opportunity awaits as well as a refreshing iced tea and holiday souvenir!

Como provides excellent transport links as well with two mainline stations linking to Milan (and Malpensa Airport) and into Switzerland, plus a fast and frequent ferry service, a main lake road with convenient bus service and a modern motorway leading to the wider Lombardy region and to Switzerland's fourth largest city of Lugano, capital of the Canton of Ticino.

Guests can easily enjoy Lake Como at their leisure by exploring the famous golden triangle towns of Bellagio, Menaggio and Varenna, the elegant dream like villas and gardens, hiking or cycling in the Triangolo Larioso, enjoying an unhurried romantic dinner nearby or in Como and also enjoying the wide variety of activities on Lake Como, which include swimming, sailing, power boat hire, sea plane adventures, tennis, golf, hiking, cycling, windsurfing, chartered yacht hire and quad biking.

Please note: The apartment is only suitable for 1 couple or a small family group of 4. Any guests who depart after the standard check out time of 10:00 will be charged half a night.

Golf:

There are Golf clubs around Lake Como: The Menaggio & Cadenabbia Golf Club is Italy's oldest golf course. Established in 1907 with 18 holes Par 70, it is located above Menaggio near Croce, in Grandola ed Uniti, approx. 20 min. by car. Green Fees: Weekdays €55, Weekends and Holidays €70 Euros; Golf Cart Rental €36.

Restaurant Golf at the club serves fantastic food and is well recommended.. Guests are always welcome, please call beforehand to check course rules. Golf Club Menaggio: (Menaggio Como).

Skiing:

This beautiful lake region of Italy is not the best for skiing as you may imagine, despite its scenery, crisp air and near perfect visibilty and mountains capped in winter snow. It does however have Skiing opportunities at local resorts for a day out.

There is a small ski area on Mt. Lema, not more than 10 km from Lugano, but you have to be lucky to have enough snow for skiing. In Ticino, the local Swiss Canton, the best places to ski are probably either San Bernardino (south of the pass of the same name) or Airolo (south of Gotthard pass). Both are reachable in about 1 hour by car across the Swiss border.

There are direct trains to Airolo as well from Lugano and hence from Italian Stations. To S. Bernardino there is only a bus connection. For more snow try Andermatt (on the north side of Gotthard pass) which has normally good snow conditions and a good choice of runs.

The closest major ski resorts are St. Moritz and Madesimo toward the Splugen Pass which is approx.100km.
