An fantastic villa retreat to sleep 9 in Lierna with private outdoor pool

Enjoying a lake view setting within easy driving distance of Varenna, this artistic villa retreat (ID 1225) offers a real hippie fun house in the heart of Lake Como!

Perfect for groups and families of 9, the villa provides a tranquil haven from which to forget the outside world and enjoy the timeless beauty of the lake.

Inside guests can easily enjoy quality time together, with a host of reception rooms to the ground floor all easily leading out to the serene landscaped garden.

The beamed ceilings and unique artistic touches add a distinctive bohemian flair to the property, for a truly relaxed and intimate setting.

An open fireplace to the colourful feature wall of the living room offers a cosy ambience in the colder months, whilst a TV, DVD player and pool table offer amusement throughout the year.

A spacious dining room perfect for 8-9 features next to a spacious kitchen diner, which is fully-equipped for a carefree stay.

Outside, a covered lake view terrace is furnished with an alfresco dining area and chilled out sitting area, perfect for daytime enjoyment and evening get-togethers. The bohemian style here perfectly lends itself to the informalities of a holiday stay, whilst allowing the surrounding natural beauty of the lake to be fully cherished and enjoyed.

The sleeping accommodation conveniently lends itself to family stays; comprising a master double with en-suite, 1 single bedroom with en-suite, 1 twin bedroom, 1 single bunk room and a family room with bunk bed set, double bed and en-suite. A fourth shared bathroom with shower also features to the villa, alongside modern laundry facilities.

Within the sunny lake view aspect of the villa’s gardens, guests can easily enjoy a tempting sunbathe, a relaxed summertime BBQ or a refreshing dip in the private outdoor pool.

Private parking can be found along a very narrow path, and from the street access there are 26 steps to take to reach the villa. Disabled access also conveniently features, for those of limited mobility.

Lierna:

Lierna is a municipality in the Province of Lecco, which is in the Italian region of Lombardy and is situated on the Eastern coast of the Lecco branch of the lake.

Although it is the next largest town to Como, it is not quite so popular with visitors, therefore not so well known. However, it has a railway line and expressway, so is easily accessible.

The town has many beautiful villas, some of which date back to the 18th and 19th century but are used mainly these days as second homes for the Italian nobility. Take a boat onto the lake to appreciate the full beauty of this area, where the spectacular mountains form a wonderful backdrop, to the greenery of the olive groves and vineyards, then descending further to the old town walls which line the lakeside.

Lierna has one of the largest stone beaches on the lake called La Riva Bianca, which translated means 'The White Shore', which is ideal for those holiday picnics. Boat services are also available from Lierna to both Lecco and Bellagio. There are several restaurants, a bakers and also a grocery shop, and also a bar at the beach where snacks are available.

Varenna Area:

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, terracottas 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.

Lombardy - Lake Como 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.

Warming, in spriing and graced with natural beauty, the lakes are still a place to draw breath and wonder. Lake Como, oriented north-south, ringed by characterful old villages often wedged onto narrow beaches between rugged cliffs and water. Those classic lake images of flower strewn balconies, Baroque gardens and splendid waterside villas can be found here in abundance. Dotted around and between the lakes are some of Italy's finest art cities, such as Milan, Verona & Bergamo.
