Description from manager

Rent an apartment in a lovely hillside villa with a swimming pool! This Lake Como accommodation in a villa overlooks the lake and the nearby town of Varenna, populated with beautiful old villas and romantic panoramas. Plentiful olive and cypress trees are evidence of the mild climate in the area around this apartment on Como Lake. Built on a rocky promontory over Lake Como, Varenna itself has been the heart of the area for centuries, an ideal place to explore whenever you decide to leave the privacy of your Lake como rental property. A romantic walkway, abounding in flora, wends along the lakefront in town, linking it to Olivedo, a landing point for ferries and steamers.

(350 m2) Casa Antonella 1 stands amidst a wealth of greenery, looking out over red-tiled roofs to a magnificent lakeshore view. A garden fronts the property, while the back of the house is at the end of a local road that stops five meters from the door. There is also a swimming pool. A beautiful private garden is just outside the door, including a patio with tables and chairs, and shaded by a trellis of wisteria. Old olive and cypress trees dot the property. Just below the house is another small accommodation for four, Casa Antonella 2, with its own terrace and independent access to the garden. If a larger sleeping capacity is necessary, it can be connected to Casa Antonella 1 through one of the double bedrooms, as Casa Antonella 3. There is parking for three cars about 60 meters away from the house. There are 20 steps from the house to the parking area.
