Enjoy the views and relax private balcony or on the large outdoor communal patio as you are lulled by the water in this delightful apartment in Carate Urio on Lake Como.
This quality apartment has A/C. It is on the second floor (almost in contact with the lake) luminous, one-bedroom/one-bath apartment. It's situated in an enchanting 19th century building, which was once a hotel. Situated on the lakeside road -- running along the western shore of Lake Como, the Lario Apartment has a spacious open-plan living area (with a comfortable, double sofa-bed) , king size bed in the bedroom and a fully equiped kitchen and dining area. When seated in this area all you can see is water.
Everything here is new, as it was bought by the present owner, only last year (2013).
The apartment is in a beautiful gated building with private underground parking. Just cross the road and you are on the lake. Close to Como city and Cernobbio, a boat ride away from bellagio, convenient for Milan airports, it is ideal for a holiday, short break or business trip.
Travel information provided: Travel and local information provided. All travel information will be provided to guests booking the apartment and there is a welcome book (provided in the apartment) with the local tours and suggested walking itineraries in the area, local information and suggested boat trips, boat and bus timetables, recommended restaurants and interesting local traditions. We can also provide an excellent, reduced rate transfer service to and from airports and rail stations, in luxury Mercedes cars and English speaking drivers.
Famous neighbours : It is 10 minutes walk away from the 'Villa Oleandra' the villa acquired from the Heinz family by George Clooney, and George has been spotted all along the lake, often mixing with the local people. The Villa Fontanella, once inhabited by Gianni Versacci is 10 minutes drive away. Many Italian film stars, singers and football players have also chosen beautiful Lake Como as their home or holiday home.
Information book: In the apartment you will find a very helpful information book, giving you lots of information about the lake, lake transport, what you should see and do while you are here.
In Tremezzo, just 20 minutes drive away, is the Villa carlotta with it's very important botanical gardens and in Lenno, the Villa balbianello, I really recommend a visit there, ask me for details, as I am a qualified guide. the villa was used for lots of films, such as 'A month by the lake', Star wars, the return of the clones, and the latest, Casino Royale, Swirzerland is just across the mountains and Lake Lugano, although very different, is very beautiful and offers walks and shopping. St. Moritz, the jet set resort is a few hours north of the lake and I can offer you the possibility to ride on the Bernina express train, across glaciers to enjoy breathtaking views.
