CASA ROSSA - LUXURY ACCOMMODATION WITH AMAZING LAKE AND MOUNTAIN VIEWS

Acquaseria Apartment Rental Photos and Description

This stylishly furnished apartment can sleep 6 guests in Acquaseria

** Free WIFI internet with all bookings!!

Luxury accommodation with amazing views of both lake and mountains in the historic centre of the lakeside village of Acquaseria on the western shore of Lake Como, 6 km from Menaggio.

This newly restructured house (ID 412) is in the rustic cobbled streets at the heart of this historic village, a few minutes walk from the lake shore and just a few metres beyond one of the oldest churches on Lake Como dating back to 1622.

If you want stunning views in a genuine Italian lake side village but without the throng of other tourists and want to be able to stroll for a morning coffee or a relaxing aperitif and dinner, we believe this apartment is ideally situated. We have secure garage space for one car a couple of minutes stroll from the house and parking for additional vehicles is available in the designated parking areas around the village (most within 100 metres).

The apartment is stylishly furnished and equipped to a very high standard. Arranged over two floors, the entrance hall on the ground floor, is warm & welcoming with a 'wine cellar' for guests to enjoy - all we ask is that you replace any empty bottles for our next guests. The layout of the house is 'upside down' and the 2 bedrooms are on the ground floor. The master bedroom has a king sized double bed and the second bedroom has twin beds. Both bedrooms lead onto a small private terrace with lake and mountain views. A bathroom with shower completes the ground floor accommodation and a spiral staircase leads up to the first floor.

The first thing you will notice at the top of the stairs is the panoramic view before you. Patio doors running almost the full width of the front of the house open onto a private terrace - lake, mountains and sailing boats take up the entire vista (180 degrees and beyond).

The terrace has a table and chairs and there are also a couple of sun beds for those who want to spend a lazy day 'at home'.

It is a real sun-trap all year round and it's great to slide wide the doors and enjoy some indoor/outdoor living.

The lounge is furnished with a soft brown leather double sofa bed and armchair with co-coordinating cushions, rugs and throws. This is complemented by an antique wooden trunk with lamps and spotlights to showcase the wonderful wooden beams in the vaulted ceiling.

A contemporary glass and chrome dining table completes the room. Entertainment is fully catered for by way of a TV with English Satellite channels & DVD player for both DVDs and CD's. A small selection of books, DVD's and games are available.

The kitchen is open plan so shares the view from the lounge and is fully equipped with a bistro table and chairs and all the other kitchen essentials that you would expect from first class accommodation.

**There is also free use of a garage - great for keeping your car, motorbikes and bicycles there!

The first floor also boast a very convenient second bathroom with shower and washing machine.

Skiing is plentiful with many resorts within a 90 minutes drive and this includes the stylish resort of St Moritz which is an ideal destination all year round.

A little Poem!

Boats on the lake, lightening in the sky

Fantastic food & wine, scooters rushing by

Pizza at Creme Caramel, children on the shore

Prosecco by the glass, leaves you wanting more

Morning church bells ring, their hourly chime

This apartment is 'fantastico', I wish we had more time.

Acquaseria is well served with a number of restaurants/pizzerias, bars and coffee shops all within a few minutes stroll of the house. A small fortnightly market sells cheese, prosciutto, fish and other essentials. The bus stop is very close by and provides a panoramic route around the lake giving access to Menaggio,with its main ferry terminal, Como town, for serious shopping or even across the border to Switzerland for the glamour of Lugano (40 minutes bus ride).

Anybody who prefers not to hire a car can arrive at Acquaseria, via the bus from Como town or from Varenna via the railway, ferry and bus (subject to arrival times and timetables). The journey on public transport is cheap, efficient and easy and if you can get a window seat the views are absolutely stunning. From the train station in Varenna it is entirely possible to take a day trip to Milan or even Venice.

Guestbook comments from the manager
Thank you Happy Holiday Homes for a fabulous stay in Casa Rossa! This holiday home was easily the best one we stayed in during our Italian and Swiss lake vacation! The interior was newly decorated throughout and offered beautiful lake views from its baclony for us to enjoy. The charming neighbourhood of Aquaseria was so timeless and fascinating to explore. Our hire car made it super easy to get to Menaggio, Villa Carlotta and Villa Balbianello on the western coast and the ferry from Menaggio took us across to Bellagio and also to Varenna. Lake Como was just heavenly! Thank you guys for all your wonderful assistance and smiles. It was a truly great vacation!

Acquaseria is well served with a number of restaurants/pizzerias, bars and coffee shops all within a few minutes stroll of the house. The bus stop is very close by and provides a panoramic route around the lake giving access to Menaggio,with its main ferry terminal, Como town, for serious shopping or even across the border to Switzerland for the glamour of Lugano (40 minutes bus ride).

The historic centre of Acquaseria is an attractive mix of old town houses and is home to many Italian couples and their families, giving it a warm and welcoming atmosphere and where 'tranquil' is their word of choice.

Wander around the cobbled streets and you will see many religious paintings and icons which are lovingly preserved and cherished by the locals. Acquaseria is also one of only a handful of villages on the lake to have its own ecological water initiative with free spring water available to all - just take along your empty bottles (recycling at its best) and fill up! Fizzy water is available too at 5 cents for 2 litres.

The beach in Acquaseria is perfect for swimming and there are picnic tables, fishing pontoons and a children's play area, all very close to Creme Caramel - a pizzeria with a first class reputation for both pizzas and home made Italian desserts.

Acquaseria is also a favourite for cyclists and walkers and many recognised and published routes take you through the village and into the mountains and villages beyond.

Other Activities: Float Plane/Helicopter,Funicular Railway,Public Villas & Gardens.

Golf: There are Golf clubs around Lake Como: The Cadenabbia & Menaggio Golf Club celebrating 100 years this year and 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. Tel: +39 344 321 03. Green Fees: Weekdays EU 55, Weekends and Holidays Euro 70 Euro; Golf Cart Rental Euro 36.

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).

Ski: This beautiful lake region of Italy is not the best for skiing as you may imagine, despite its scenery, crisp air and near perfect visibility 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 resort is Madesimo toward the Splugen Pass, which is approx. 1 hr 20 min. by car
