Calozzo Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Spacious apartment, sleeps 6, with swimming pool, lake and mountain views

A luxury retreat on Lake Como!

Situated in the peaceful semi-rural village of Pianello, along the desirable western shore of Lake Como, this beautifully furnished holiday property features luxury contemporary accommodation over two floors, with a spacious modernist open plan living room comprising a comfortable L-shaped sofa and flat-screen TV for guests to relax and unwind.

A stylish dining area is situated next to the newly-fitted kitchen which is beautifully designed with half wood half white units and granite work tops. The kitchen is ideal for a comfortable self-catering stay with a gas hob and over, dishwasher and washing machine fitted and containing all the desired appliances.

From the living area a sunken tiled level provides a large dressing room with cupboards.

Lovely glass French doors along the far wall of the living room provides plenty of light and opens out onto a fabulous sunny terrace ideal for daytime sunbathing and alfresco dining! Outdoor furniture is provided and wonderful views over the charming town with partial lake and mountain views can be enjoyed.

From the living area wooden open tread stairs lead to the upper floor which boasts romantic Swiss chalet-style sleeping accommodation, with high sloping white-washed ceilings and inviting and bright luxury interiors. The master bedroom features a spacious contemporary suite with a modernist double bed, bedside table and wardrobe.

A second bedroom is also superbly decorated and furnished with two beautiful single beds and bedside tables.

Conveniently the property features two luxury bathrooms, with the principal bathroom tiled with beautiful rough slate tiles for a contemporary feel and also featuring a power shower with all the desired sanitary-ware. The second bathroom is also tiled in the beautiful naturalistic tiles and features a toilet, wash basin and bidet.

Outside, there is a sunny lake view to be enjoyed from the swimming pool and poolside terrace, ideal for sunbathing and splashing around during the summer months. From the hillside property, the peaceful semi-rural village can be enjoyed, with a bus service operating from the town to the north and south of the lake. Guests with a car will be well placed to explore the lake at their leisure, with nearby Cremia offering Kite-surfing, a sandy beach and an excellent local family-friendly Pizzeria and the nearby picturesque resort town of Menaggio boasting cafe-lined piazzas, lake view restaurants, boutique shops, family-friendly Lido and a wide choice of amenities and transport links including a car and passenger ferry service to Bellagio and Varenna.

Local sport activities include swimming, sailing, kite-surfing, hiking, cycling, golf, horse-riding and quad-biking. The central lake attractions of Villa Carlotta, Villa Balbianello and the Tremezzina lakeshore are all easily accessible from Pianello by car or by bus.

The villa is very modern and very well equipped and presented. It has wifi but only on collection of a portable device from the agent.The pictures showing the views of the lake do not do them justice especially from the patio terrace.

The main drawback relates to the design of the upstairs of the building where the bedrooms are effectively in the loft with only sky light windows. In July/August therefore the heat is unbearable and the owner should at least provide fans if not airconditioning.. The pool is very clean and 2 sunbeds are provided but the surroundings on one side are completely unfinished which detracts from the ambience of the area. The overall location is good with a general store and restaurants within a short drive and Mennaggio is only 20 minutes away by car. The ferry from Pianello DSL Lario is very infrequent. I would recommend the villa for a stay in Autumn, winter or spring but not summer. Tony Davidson

From the hillside property, the peaceful semi-rural village can be enjoyed, with a bus service operating from the town to the north and south of the lake. Guests with a car will be well placed to explore the lake at their leisure, with nearby Cremia offering Kite-surfing, a sandy beach and an excellent local family-friendly Pizzeria and the nearby picturesque resort town of Menaggio boasting cafe-lined piazzas, lake view restaurants, boutique shops, family-friendly Lido and a wide choice of amenities and transport links including a car and passenger ferry service to Bellagio and Varenna.

Bike Rentals, Boat Rentals/Charters, Canoeing/Kayaking, Float Plane/Helicopter, Funicular Railway, Park, Public Transportation, Public Villas & Gardens and Rowing Boats.

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. Green Fees: Weekdays €55, Weekends and Holidays ���70 Euros; Golf Cart Rental €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).

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.
