Overview

Photos and Description of this holiday apartment in Varenna - Vista d'Oro Ulivo Apt.8

Stylish open plan Studio apartment with swimming pool and amazing views

Ideally suited for couples this modern and spacious Lake view Studio property is situated on the first floor of the well-positioned modern residence complex, which is built in an historical quarry on the sunny Varenna hillside, offering guests a tranquil and memorable holiday experience on an elevated eastern lakeshore position!

The apartment (ID 95) offers a spacious layout with a very stylish Open plan Lake view Living room which features a Double Sofa bed with TV and access out on to a sunny Lake view Balcony where guests can fully enjoy the dramatic and highly romantic views over Lake Como which will leave you inspired and invigorated.

A galley style fully-fitted Kitchen provides all the essential appliances including a dishwasher for convenience and a newly fitted Bathroom also features in the property.

The Vista d’Oro residence also offers a splendid resident swimming pool which is well situated on the hillside to make the very most of the sunshine and breathtaking lake views.

**Please Note: The swimming pool is open from April 21st to September 30th.

A private Garage is also provided for guests and a car is highly recommended due to the hillside location of the Residence.

Guests can easily reach Varenna by car. The early Victorian part of Varenna provides a choice of lake view Cafes, many fine Villas and the famous and historical Castello di Vezio, which is situated on the Varenna hillside and which features frequent Falconry displays and medieval re-enactments during the Summer-Autumn time. A picturesque lakeside promenade takes guests along to the romantic medieval part of Varenna, which features medieval passageways, cobbled Piazzas and ancient Churches. There are many delightful restaurants and wine bars to enjoy as well as boutique craft shops to visit.

The Car and Passenger Ferry as well as the Train service also operates from Varenna and Fiumelatte, providing guests with an enjoyable and care-free way of exploring Bellagio, Menaggio, other pretty Lake Como towns and also Milan.

A distinctive feature of Varenna is its mild climate; olive & cypress trees abound as well as many other varieties of lush, tropical plants, typical if the lake. Varenna enjoys abundant sunshine & warmth right into the evening. The International jet-set resort of St. Moritz is just 1.5 hours by car.

Further information on Perledo: This old fishing village has several very interesting shops; from local butchers to craft shops and bars, as well as many restaurants ranging from simple but fabulous pizzerias and trattorias, to elegant dining experiences with lake views. Varenna offers excellent rail links to Milan & Venice! Plus there are ferry links to all the gorgeous villages & towns along Lake Como's shores; it makes a great base for exploring the area.

Skiing in the area is bountiful with resorts such as Madesimo 1.15 hours to the north and the local ski resorts of Piani di Bobbio & Pien della Betulla are only 40 - 50 minutes away. And for an exciting day trip any time of year, why not go on the beautiful drive, through the Alps, to the international jet-set resort of St. Moritz, only 1.5 hours by car.

Varenna and Local Skiing.: Varenna may be the most picturesque town on the lake, its steep winding alleys lined with charming homes, flowering balconies and lace-curtained windows. Just above it is the ancient castle where Theodolinda, Queen of the Lombards, is said to have died in the 7th century. Two famed villas to visit here are Villa Cipressi, with terraced gardens cascading right down to the shores, and Villa Monastero, a true showcase.

The skiing areas of Madesimo and St. Moritz in Switzerland are just 80 - 90 mins drive from Varenna. The slopes of Italy's western Trentino and Lombardy are between 90 minutes and 2 hours drive away.

One of several local skiing areas is 'Piani di Bobbio' from where you can enjoy the alpine scenery.

  • 5 out of 5
I decided to suprise my girlfirend with a romantic getaway to Lake Como. My parents always took their holidays there and I wanted to see what I was missing! I found a romantic looking studio apartment that was located in a complex just above Varenna. When my girlfriend and I arrived we got out the car immediately and were both amazed by the views of the lake. We didn't think it was going to get even better until we stepped into the perfect romantic retreat, Ulivo 8. It was very clean, well equipped, and had a very cosy feel. We had impressive views overlooking the lake. The studio was a perfect base to come back to in the evenings. The space was perfect for 2, and all the furniture was brand new, and technologies were modern. I definitely recommend this Studio for anyone wanting a romantic getaway! Also the price is just right! We will certainly look to return.

Other Activities: Float Plane/Helicopter,Funicular Railway,Public Villas & Gardens,

Golf: There are Golf clubs around Lake Como: The Cadenabbia & Menaggio Golf Club celebrating 100 years this year 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 EU 55, Weekends and Holidays EU 70 Euros; Golf Cart Rental EU 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).

There is also a first class Golf Course at Varesse for those staying nearer to the Lake Maggorie area.

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
