Overview

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday chateau / country house in Griante - Glicine

Fashion Apartment In Small Village Of Griante.

20 metres from the supermarket and the La Vecchia Torre bar, Glicine House is situated on the first floor, below another equally comfortable apartment called Azalea House and comprises a spacious, luminous living room with country kitchen area and a sitting area with flat screen satellite TV with SKY channels as Chris Wallace's Fox News Sunday , Bbc World , Sky News (also for chidren:Cartoon Network ,Disney Junior ,Disney English ,Planet Kids), ACER desk top computer with free internet access and WI FI connection.

Glicine House has two bedrooms leading off the entrance hall where the walls are decorated with geometric patterns in an antique red that picks up the colour of the red larch parquet floor.

The double bedroom, overlooking the garden and with a side view of the lake, has air conditioning as well as heating for the winter months. The radiant orchid-blue colour makes for calm, relaxing atmosphere.

The second bedroom, with three single beds, also has air conditioning (and heating), as well as a ‘fifties terracotta working wood stove, which blends well with the pink-painted walls. The room overlooks a charmingly-lit courtyard which serves as a private carpark for guests.

In both bedrooms, the headboards and wardrobes feature decorative carving by master carpenters from Sutrio, custodians of a traditional expertise known throughout Val Badia, Val Gardena and the nearby Austrian Tyrol and Carinzia.

Griante Cadenabbia , Lake Como. A fragrant blend of art, relaxation and culture. Contemplation reigns here. A green and blue strip of water and lush vegetation in the shape of a forked tongue, Lake Como looks south towards the industrial heart of Northern Italy and Milan, its financial capital, and north to the almost always snow-capped peaks of the Swiss Alps of the Engadin in the Grisons Canton. The area around the lake offers excellent tourist hospitality, especially in the central part known as “Tremezzina” or the “Riviera of the Azaleas” for the multicoloured blossoms that burst into flower at the beginning of spring.. Together with Cernobbio and Bellagio, it is in Griante Cadenabbia , one of the queens of the lake and a prestigious international tourist destination with its excellent hotels and the more familiar, intimate and exclusive residences scattered throughout the area, that beautiful geometric plantings forming elegant gardens and inspiring hymns to contemplation can be found. Cadenabbia lies on the shore opposite Bellagio. Visited in the past by famous personalities such as Giuseppe Verdi and Konrad Adenauer, the German Chancellor, who regularly holidayed here at Villa La Collina , in the far off 19th century, Griante Cadenabbia also charmed the American writer, Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, who wrote: Cadenabbia I ask myself, Is this a dream? Will it all vanish into air? Is there a land of such supreme And perfect beauty anywhere? Today, tourists from all over the world, Australians, Americans, North Europeans, Russians, Swiss and Canadians, and even some from the Arab Emirates, animate its lakeside, wander through the ancient village and climb up to the Sanctuary of San Martino perched high above. All on a voyage of discovery of an area made enchanting by colourful gardens, spectacular parks and sumptuous historic villas, full of the harmonious sounds of nature interrupted only by solemn, enveloping silence. The beauty of the landscape has been preserved with complete respect for the environment. This is at the heart of its attraction. From Griante we start out on an imaginary tour to discover Villa Carlotta , Villa La Collina , United States Democratic Senator (currently Secretary of State ) from Massachussets John Kerry's Villa Maresi, Villa Melzi in Bellagio and Villa del Balbianello in Lenno, owned by the FAI, the Italian National Trust. The latter was the location for George Lucas’s film “Star Wars : Episode II - Attack of the Clones” . Locations used for the films form the theme of an original and very interesting travel guide “Lake Como & Villa del Balbianello” written by Belgian, Mark Dermul. Gigliola Foglia is the professional tour guide recommended to accompany you
