About the property

10 Persons, 5 Beds, 5 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms

Two cosy, traditional style independent houses positioned next to each other on the mountain side with spectacular views of the mountains and Lake Como.

Situated in a beautiful Nature Reserve with private access - approx 3km from the village of Plesio, which has a store for basic essentials & some 8km above Menaggio which provides all your needs.

The larger of the two houses sleeps up to 6 people in three bedrooms. There is a reverse level open plan living area with a cosy wood burning stove, a complete entertainment system (SAT TV, DVD/CD player with 5.1 surround sound), kitchen and dining area all on the first floor which takes full advantage of the spectacular lake & mountain views. On the ground floor there are two double bedrooms, a third bedroom with bunk beds and a bathroom with a shower. To the side is an open terrace, ideal for \'al fresco\' dining & access to the garden & pool.

The smaller house (Bella Uno), sleeps up to 4 people in two bedrooms. There is a reverse level open plan living area with a unique stone fireplace, SAT TV & DVD player, kitchen and dining area all on the first floor, taking full advantage of the spectacular views. On the ground floor there is a master bedroom, a second bedroom with twin beds and a bathroom with a shower.

This hillside retreat really is the perfect place to have a quiet and relaxed vacation for those of you who want to escape city \'hustle & bustle\'.

You can enjoy the BBQ grill in the big garden while swimming in the pool (7.5m x 4m) just at the back of the houses.

The property gives access to a great number of scenic mountain walks with direct access to the Menaggio Rifugio, some 1.5hrs walk.

Alternatively during the winter months there is also the option to travel to the various ski resorts: Madesimo & St Moritz, which are both approx 1.5hrs away.

Given the properties mountainside location in a wooded nature reserve access is via a steep & winding track for approx 1 mile, the main part is tarmac & an unmade rocky section for the last section (approx 300m). It is advisable therefore to arrive during daylight hours to be able to fully familiarise yourself with the roadway- certainly not suitable for inexperienced drivers.

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.
