Description from manager

This elegant Lake Como villa is right on the lake and has unbeatable views from the upstairs. There is a public walkway that runs in front of the villa, but there are hedges that provide privacy. This is a great Italian Lakes villa for an extended family with children or for a group of friends. There are several bedrooms with ensuite bathrooms, a huge kitchen, and a play room for little ones. Adults will enjoy the large sunny terrace, while kids frolic in the pool or play at the beach next door. Whatever your group demographics, everyone staying at this villa on Lake Como will enjoy exploring the surrounding area-- one of the most beautiful natural areas in Italy.

(2,500 m2) This lakefront villa is surrounded on the front and around one side by a large terra-cotta terrace (45m x 8m) and a lawn, equipped with an outdoor dining table and chairs where you can have meals. Around the side of the house is a swimming pool (8m x 5m; pool heating included from mid-May until mid-September; during other months heating of pool is an additional charge). Behind the house is a parking area for six cars; across the street from the parking area is a museum devoted to ancient watercraft, called La Raccolta della Barca Lariana. To the left of the house (on the side of the pool) is a small dock area, and to the right is a small public beach. A public path runs in front of the property between the front lawn and the water (with hedges for privacy), so this property should not be considered secluded; the most pedestrians come during July and August.

<p>(600 m2)

Ground Floor: The front doors of this villa lead into an entry room where there is a closet. Directly to the left is a play room for children, with access to the terrace. Continuing straight ahead from the entryway, you will enter into a 55 m2 living/dining area with a huge wooden dining table (seating about 10-14) and French doors opening out onto the terrace. An open doorway leads into a 37 m2 living room, where there are a couple of couches and a TV. Two open doorways on either side of the television lead into a closed veranda, where there is a table and chairs in front of a couple of sunny windows, perfect for breakfast or an afternoon snack. At the opposite end of the living room, another doorway leads into a small hallway where there are two WCs, and a staircase leading to the first floor. Back in the dining room, a door to the right leads into a large kitchen equipped with a dishwasher, coffee maker, toaster, oven, cook-top, and microwave. There is a handicap-equipped bathroom with shower on the ground floor. On request the owner can also arrange a handicap accessible bedroom on the ground floor.</p>

About the area

<p>This lakefront villa is located ten kilometers north of Menaggio on the northwest shore of Lake Como, literally next door to a beach. Once a walled city, some remnants are still visible in Menaggio today. In the summer, it is a popular recreation area, with opportunities for windsurfing, water skiing, and other water-based activities. You could also rent a bicycle and explore the area or take a walk down the lakeside promenade, lined with flowers. Because of its central location, Menaggio is a great base for exploring the rest of the area. Drive down the lakeshore road to Tremezzo and Como, or hop on a ferry to visit Varenna or Bellagio. Known as "la perla del lago" (the pearl of the lake), Bellagio is considered by many to be the most beautiful town in Europe. Its narrow cobbled streets, breathtaking views, impeccable homes and glorious villas make it a most enchanting spot to explore. Como, located at the southernmost tip of the lake which bears its name, is perfect for a day's outing. Sights in Como include the Duomo, the austere church of San Abbondio, the Piazza S. Fedele (with many 400-year-old buildings), and the Basilica, one of the masterpieces of the "maestri comacini" (Como masters). Before leaving, be sure to take the funicular up to Brunate-- a small village with a spectacular view. While on Lake Como, you'll discover that the cuisine is based primarily on fish. Specialties include misultitt (fish desiccated in containers called misolte) and soused fish (fried and then pickled), along with more traditional dishes like rice with perch or smoked trout. </p> <p>Nearby Attractions: Beach, Lake Como, Menaggio (windsurfing, water skiing, lakeside promenade), Tremezzo, Varenna, Bellagio (cobbled streets, villas), Como (Duomo, San Abbondio, Piazza S. Fedele, Basilica), Brunate.</p> Milan (Airport): 85 km/53 mi
