Moltrasio House Rental Photos and Description
Sleeps 4 to 8: House. Garden. Huge terrace. Optional additional studio flat
Unique chalet style villa of immense old-world Italian character with an additional self-contained studio flat below the terrace. The villa, which has wifi, can be rented on its own for up to 4 people, or with the studio, which can also sleep up to 4 people.
The self-catering property is set in the greenery and gravel paths of its own private garden in the heart of the quaint lakeside village of Moltrasio. Nestling into the mountainside, the villa has a substantial terrace on two sides for outdoor dining and sunbathing, with a magnificent panorama of the lake and surrounding mountains, and the steeply rising village.
The terrace of the main villa has a jasmine-covered pergola for shady lunches. There are easy chairs and recliners from which to enjoy the views to the sound of the crickets. It is set in a terraced garden planted with palm and olive trees, roses, lavender and jasmine.
The spacious villa sleeps 4 in two upstairs bedrooms with wooden balconies.
The romantic master bedroom with ornate double bed has shuttered windows to the lake on two sides. The second bedroom, also with a lake view, has comfortable twin beds. There is one upstairs bathroom, refitted in January 2013, with a shower cubicle, and an additional toilet and sink in the utility room downstairs. The traditional tiled galley kitchen has a double sink and a gas hob and oven.
The spacious living room has French windows on two sides onto the terrace, and an open fireplace. There is a small TV with DVD player and a selection of English-language DVDs. There is a full wifi service to access the internet. The bedrooms have parquet flooring, while the living room and breakfast room were newly tiled in January 2013. The thick old walls keep the house cool in summer but there are also fans in the bedrooms.
The accommodation capacity can be increased by also renting the well-designed small studio flat below the terrace with its own entrance.
The studio has an outdoor dining table on a deck with a magnificent view of the lake and surrounding mountains.
The compact apartment has four shuttered windows overlooking the lake. Through the entrance is a modern kitchen with gas hob, fridge and a microwave, as well as a pine table and stools for indoor eating.
The central section of the studio, with parquet flooring, has a pull-out double bed and a pair of child-length bunk beds, with wardrobe and cupboard space.
At the far end is a modern, attractively tiled shower room with WC and bidet.
This additional accommodation is ideal for a couple or a young family.
Private parking for the property is available in a lock-up garage for 1 car within 100 metres of the front gate.
If you want a vacation with an authentic taste of old Italy in a ravishingly beautiful location then you will love this house.
From May to the end of September there is a sandy lakeside beach with diving boards, a pizzeria bar and sunbeds for hire two minutes’ walk down the hill, where you can swim in the lake.
