BELLA VITA AMORE - PARADISE VIEWS NEVER FORGOTTEN!

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday apartment in Varenna - Bella Vita Amore.

Charming spacious apartment to sleep 5 guests near to Varenna

Boasting romantic central lake views and easy access to the many lake highlights, this modern luxury holiday home is ideal for couples or small groups of up to 5 guests.

The luxury residence is situated just a 1 minute drive from Varenna, along the main lake road of Fiumelatte and is located in the grounds of Villa Capoana which once stood here. 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.

From the parking space provided the holiday home is situated 2 floors up, otherwise if guests are walking from the street level the property is situated to the first floor of the residence.

Spacious and stylish accommodation awaits and a contemporary newly fitted kitchen with a welcoming lake view living and dining area provides a fabulous area in which to relax and unwind.

The fully equipped kitchen provides all the desired appliances for preparing and cooking delicious home-made meals during your stay and the other home from home comforts include a SAT flat screen TV with DVD player to the living area which is furnished with comfortable sofas.

Double French doors both lead from the open plan living room to a fabulous sunny lake view balcony terrace which provides the perfect sun trap as well as the perfect venue for romantic aperitifs and alfresco dinner parties! 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 for further outdoor space.

This bright and spacious holiday home further benefits from a large lake view master double bedroom as well as a second single bedroom which is ideal for additional guests. A newly fitted contemporary bathroom with power shower, wash basin with vanity area, WC, bidet and washer dryer completes the internal accommodation.

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.

Fiumelatte is a sub division of the municipality of Varenna in the Province of Como, located in the Italian region of Lombardy. It's a small pretty village which has ancient narrow cobbled streets that wind between the old buildings and is situated approximately 2 km south of Varenna, The village lies on the eastern side of Lake Como and benefits from some lovely lakeside walks.

The houses in this village are situated to the foot of the steep slopes of the Fopp mount, which is over 1000 meters high and crowned by the ruins of Castle of Vezio.

The pretty and well established village of Fiumelatte claims its unique name from the distinctive frothy river which runs through the village and which is famous in Italy as the country’s shortest river! Fiumelatte provides local residents with a good and authentic Italian restaurant, a local bakery and other local amenities.

Varenna is the place to get away from it all, but also be in touch with the rest of the Lake. For the romantics, the historians or for those who love peace, tranquility and a history that goes back thousands of years this is the place. Varenna is an ancient fishing village with close to 1000 residents spread along a steep hillside overlooking Lake Como.

Varenna, built on a rock at the foot of a mountain is a boat stop from Bellagio on the east side of the lake and though popular it escapes the throngs in Bellagio (undeniably lovely, but like many other undeniably lovely places the crowds, higher prices and ‘tourist trap�� experiences can be very trying). Varenna dates from the 5th century - you can still see in places the original Roman layout of the town: a geometric design which allows wonderful views of the lake.

The reds, terracotta and yellows of its houses, its mild climate and the olive and cypress trees make you wonder whether you aren’t 200km further south. After the nearby island of Comancina was destroyed the population increased and flourished. The warring factions, as with much of Lombardy saw Varenna at odds with Como on many occasions and the rule of Varenna pass in typical Italian family tradition from the Visconti family to the Sfondrati's. Today Varenna is a lovely spot to chill out, although be aware that shops and even restaurants have been known to shut for lunch, so expect the better things in life to take longer.

Varenna is one of the most beautiful towns on the lake, its steep winding alleys lined with charming homes, flowering balconies and lace-curtained windows. In the evenings, the village is serene and picturesque. Truly a perfect place for relaxing. This is an understatement! The warmth of the locals combined with the perfect setting of the place, would melt the coldest hearts of the most demanding travelers.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We've had a great week on Lake Como and the weather was just superb, as was our holiday apartment! The views were just beautiful and the accommodation was so much more enjoyable to stay in compared to a hotel room somewhere!



The village had a train service to Milan via lecco which was so handy and the ferry stop in Varenna was great for reaching Bellagio and Menaggio. Thanks for letting us stay here- its been the best!

Incredible views. Perfect apartment!

  • 5 out 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.
