Overview

Property

Updated: 05-Dec-2016
Elegant Villa between Bellagio and Como with peaceful garden & olive trees

The villa retains many charming original features including high ceilings, pretty balconies and original mosaic flooring and stylishly combines modern furnishings and beautiful quirky touches to create a luxury and distinctive self-catering retreat.

Guests can enjoy relaxing and socialising in the spacious living room which boasts whitewashed beamed ceilings, blue whitewashed walls and distressed wooden bookshelves, with a sofa and two easy chairs for relaxing. A fantastic open fireplace provides an idyllic atmosphere for warm cosy evenings and doors lead directly out into the private garden which is perfect for summer alfresco dinner parties. A well equipped kitchen provides all you will need for a self catering holiday.

The three bedrooms all boast double beds and making it perfect for travelling couples and grown-up families. Two bathrooms are situated in the villa.

Please note that there are quite a number of stone steps that lead to the entrance of the villa.

Lombardy area: The Italian Lakes are a little slice of paradise. Elegant ribbons of blue water stretch out ahead, folded into the sun-baked foothills, with a spectacular back drop of the snow-capped Alps.

Lake Como offers hidden treasures just waiting for the visitor to discover them: charming corners forgotten by time, lakeside villages where nothing seems to have changed for centuries.

It is steeped in history with an immense collection of churches, architectural masterpieces and works of art covering the centuries. The lake is situated in a basin surrounded by wooded mountains, and offers an extremely varied landscape, with its' shores featuring a succession of pastures, and woods as well as harsh and impressive rock formations.

All this alongside elegant, lakeside villas with sub-tropical gardens, which provide a haven of peace and tranquillity and chic resorts such as Varenna, Bellagio, Menaggio and Como itself.

Faggeto Lario area: Exploring the village of Faggeto Lario guests will find many fascinating buildings, ancient piazzas, medieval passageways and romantic churches.

The village provides some basic amenities for residents including a delicatessen, restaurant and cafe/bar. Due to its hillside location a car is essential for convenience and ease of movement to the lake front and the other nearby towns.

The charming and very pretty lake front is just a short drive away by car from the village and features many pretty harbours and local beauty spots. The cosmopolitan city of Como can be reached by car in less than 25 minutes and provides a wide variety of cafes, bars, restaurants, boutique shops, galleries and tourist sites such as the famous Duomo, the elegant Villa Olmo, the Volta museum and the funicular railway.

Faggeto Lario is a quaint and ancient village characterised by medieval cobbled streets, arched passageways and stepped streets with charming town houses and a historical church overlooking the magnificent mountains and western shore of Lake Como.

Local activities include hiking, cycling, sailing, swimming, boat hire, horse riding and paragliding. Lake Como offers the two excellent Golf Clubs of Vista D’Este and Menaggio & Cadenabbia and the Aero club in Como makes for a memorable tour of the lake from a seaplane.

The village is ideally situated for guests who wish to explore the Lake with the famous resort town of Bellagio with its romantic cafe-lined promenade, ferry service and boutique and local craft shops within easy reach by car in just 30 m.

Other Activities: Float plane/helicopter - canoeing/kayaking

Golf: There are Golf clubs around Lake Como: The Cadenabbia & Menaggio Golf Club and 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. Tel: +39 344 321 03. 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).

Ski: 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. 100K
