Ossuccio Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Fabulous apartment to sleep 6 with garden, terrace and views!

The views, whether seen from the house or from a slice of heaven modestly called a terrazzo, are utterly magnificent. Comacina, right in the middle of Lake Como sits at your feet along with the lake and the mountains surrounding it.

This apartment (ID 211) is a spotless and bright two level apartment in a three story home. The main level features a large living area with a double set of glass doors overlooking the lake and opening to a furnished, panoramic terrace. There are comfortable lounge chairs and a sofa at one end, a spacious kitchen area at the other end and a dining table for six in the centre

The two bedrooms on this level, each with its own bathroom, are at opposite ends of the floor. While the bedroom on the lower level is smaller than those above, it does enjoy a separate kitchen area, independent indoor and outdoor access and a living area equipped with a cozy fireplace.

For those who need to bring their laptop with them for keeping in touch with work or family, there is Wireless Internet Access.

There is a lower level laundry room equipped with a washing machine. Firewood is included in the price. Maid service and porter assistance may be arranged when booking.

About 75 steps down from this hillside perch is the main coastal road and an enclosed garage with parking for one car. Additional parking is found within 100 yards along with a fisherman's restaurant. The village centre is 300 yards away.

Special Offer:

For those who would like some personal attention from somebody who was born on the Lake but has all the skill sets to both educate and illuminate your stay. Danilo will both accompany you and introduce you to those unseen and little known places. Such a well known character can open doors and reveal the inner workings of the Lake’s businesses and styles of relaxation.

For your consideration is a day in St Moritz, leave “Prima Isola” at 7.30, be on the slopes for 9.30am, ski the all day and get back around 7.00pm. The following day, you could go shopping together and also visit the very special places, the Lake doesn’t often advertise well, such as the olive oil groves, the smoked trout business etc. In the afternoon you can start to cook a dinner together usng local ingredients to local recipes (Price Guide: €150 - €200).

Ossuccio area:

The lovely town of Ossuccio, one of the best starting points for mountain walks, or boats trips on the lake, especially around the beautiful island of Isola Comacina, which you can explore by boat. Why not book a meal at the only restaurant on the island only 2 mins. away away by boat.

Ossuccio enjoys a sunny aspect on the west side of the lake and is ideally situated to visit all parts of the lake. The lake side garden here, in the heart of the village is popular for sunbathing, enjoying a drink, sunbathing or taking a dip in the lake! Restaurants, bars and a bank can all be found in the village.

Lenno (Villa Balbianello-James Bond) with the water ferry accessing all parts of the lake is just 3 mins drive with supermarket.Villa Carlotta (Tremezzo) with it's majestic gardens is just a short drive and Bellagio is only a water taxi or ferry ride away!

Como city and Switzerland are just 1/2 an hour away and another 30 mins will take you to Milan or Monza for the formula 1 grand prix!

Lombardy - Lake Como Area:

The Italian Lakes are a little slice of paradise. Elegant ribbons of blue water stretch out ahead, folded into the sun-baked foothills, with a spectacular back drop of the snow-capped Alps.

Lake Como offers hidden treasures just waiting for the visitor to discover them: charming corners forgotten by time, lakeside villages where nothing seems to have changed for centuries.

It is steeped in history with an immense collection of churches, architectural masterpieces and works of art covering the centuries. The lake is situated in a basin surrounded by wooded mountains, and offers an extremely varied landscape, with its' shores featuring a succession of pastures, and woods as well as harsh and impressive rock formations.

All this alongside elegant, lakeside villas with sub-tropical gardens, which provide a haven of peace and tranquillity and chic resorts such as Varenna, Bellagio, Menaggio and Como itself.

Warming, in spring and graced with natural beauty, the lakes are still a place to draw breath and wonder. Lake Como, oriented north-south, ringed by characterful old villages often wedged onto narrow beaches between rugged cliffs and water. Those classic lake images of flower strewn balconies, Baroque gardens and splendid waterside villas can be found here in abundance. Dotted around and between the lakes are some of Italy's finest art cities, such as Milan, Verona & Bergamo.

The most romantic and picturesque villages on the lake are Santa Maria Rezzonico, Varenna (15 min by ferry) & Bellagio (8 min by ferry), Lenno (visit Villa Balbianello, location for 007's Casino Royale as well as Villa Gaeta, right here in Menaggio) & Laglio (where George Clooney owns Villa Oleandra).

Guestbook comments from the manager

Location is wonderful, best thing about the villa is the great view of the lake.



Double room on the top floor can do with bedside tables - to keep phone, wallet etc.



Danilo (owner) was very friendly and helpful, he recommended a restaurant in lenno (can't remember the name), next to a sports bar, which was REALLY good.

Sala Comacina with ferries to Comacina Island is a five minute drive away, as is Tremezzo. Lenno with a grocery store and the nearest hydrofoil stop is within a 10 minute drive. Bellagio, directly across the lake, is reached in 20 minutes by ferry. Menaggio with the closest bus terminal is 15 minutes by car; Como and its train station: 30; Lugano in nearby Switzerland: 45; Milan: 120.

Golf:

There are Golf clubs around Lake Como: The Menaggio & Cadenabbia Golf Club is Italy's oldest golf course. Established in 1907 with 18 holes Par 70, it is located above Menaggio near Croce, in Grandola ed Uniti, approx. 20 min. by car.

Restaurant Golf at the club serves fantastic food and is well recommended.. Guests are always welcome, please call beforehand to check course rules. Golf Club Menaggio: (Menaggio 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.
