BELLA VITA GRANDE - A FABULOUS APARTMENT WITH LAKE VIEWS!

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

This apartment will sleep up to 8 guests and near to all local amenities

A fabulous interconnecting family-size apartment with equally fabulous lake views!

Enjoying a breathtaking location, just metres from the lakefront with views towards the wonderfull town of Bellagio and Menaggio shoreline, this beautiful modern residence (ID 969) offers the ideal choice for families and groups of up to 8, who are looking to travel together with independence and privacy when needed.

The private residence is situated along the accessible main lake road and the Milan train station line also conveniently passes through this quaint and picturesque village, which is set on the edge of the famous resort town of Varenna and is perfectly placed to enjoy a fantastic self-catering Lake Como stay!

Guests can either reach the property from the stairs leading from the road level or from the same steps which lead from the private parking bay level. Once guests have arrived at the terraced level a spacious and sunny lake view terrace to the front of this lovely holiday home greets guests on arrival, with plenty of space for relaxing and sunbathing. Guests at Bella Vita Grande can now benefit from the new private jacuzzi installed on the terrace.

Opening the French doors to both interconnecting apartments allows for guest to really enjoy this fabulous summer retreat, which allows for the sunny lake views to flood into each of the stunning modern open plan living rooms, which are both furnished high contemporary standard with double sofa beds and a flat screen SAT TV with DVD player to each.

Each apartment features a fully equipped kitchen offering all the desired appliances for preparing delicious meals during your stay, with a gas hob oven, toaster, microwave, dishwasher and electric kettle all provided in a stylish and practical open plan layout, ideal for entertaining during your stay.

Guests can enjoy dining inside or alternatively outside, with the terrace providing a fabulous alfresco dining area, and a fabulous Jacuzzi, newly installed for 2012, with views over ancient villa grounds and towards the breathtaking lake with its tranquil and at the same time striking natural beauty.

As the apartments interconnect the sleeping accommodation is very flexible and versatile, with two spacious and very comfortable double bedrooms and a double sofa bed situated to each living area. Two newly fitted modern bathrooms are situated in the holiday home as well as a washing machine for guest’s convenience.

Varenna:

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.

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 travellers.

Thanks folks for a top stay on Lake Como. Our holiday apartment was a great size for us four and the lake views were simply breath taking. We loved Lake 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.

From the residence guests can enjoy dining out at the local authentic restaurants of Fiumelatte, Linate and Varenna as well as the wide selection of local amenities which include grocery shops and train station with links to Milan conveniently located in Fiumelatte. The beach at Linate provides the perfect place to relax by the lake for the day and water sports are all located on the central lake.

The famous picturesque resort town of Varenna provides the ideal opportunity to fully soak up the timeless romantic charm of the lake, with its medieval cobbled streets leading past cafe lined piazzas, boutique shops and romantic wine bars to secret romantic vistas and beautiful lakefront walks.

The ancient Castello di Vezio is situated above Varenna and with its medieval enactments, falconry displays and banquets, is a popular visitor attraction during the summer months, as well as the breathtaking lakeside botanical gardens of Villa Monastero.

Varenna offers a fast and frequent car and passenger ferry service to Bellagio, Menaggio and Cadenabbia, making this location perfect for accessing all the many and varied central lake activities and attractions!
