The stylish kitchen is fully-equipped for carefree cooking, with a cooker hob, oven, microwave, kettle, toaster and fridge provided. The double aspect views and the spacious, blissful ambience makes the room ideal for entertaining and for relaxing in throughout the year; with plenty of natural light to flood the room and a Juliette balcony inviting a fresh summertime breeze in.

From this romantic setting, a wooden staircase leads to the upper floor of the duplex. The interior here is as equally stylish and welcoming, with romantic sloping ceilings providing an added touch of serenity perfect for enjoying a good night’s rest. The two bedrooms here are thoughtfully furnished with an added touch of flexibility, to comprise 1 double bedroom and 1 twin furnished with two single beds.

The restful master double features a large skylight and picture eave window overlooking the charming townhouses in the piazza. The romantic interior continues to delight, with a French-style wrought iron double bed, a wardrobe, wicker hamper and electric fan.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Uns hat der Aufenthalt in der Villa al Prato sehr gut gefallen!



Neben der perfekten Lage des Appartments und der sehr geschmacklich abgestimmten Einrichtung ist auch die gute Küchenausstattung (Espresso-Maschine, scharfe Messer etc.) zu erwähnen. Auch ihr Service war sehr gut: Unsere Bitte nach einem zweiten Haustürschlüssel wurde umgehend erfüllt. Wie bereits erwähnt gehabt ließ sich die Appartmenttür nicht richtig schließen - dies lässt sich aber sicherlich durch die Hautechnik schnell beheben.



Also wir können nur Gutes berichten und hatten klasse 14 Tage am Comer See !



Translation to English:

We enjoyed our stay at the Villa al Prato loved it!



In addition to the perfect location of the apartment and the very flavorful coordinated means the good kitchen equipment (espresso machine, sharp knife, etc.) should be mentioned. Their service was very good: Our request for a second front door key was immediately fulfilled. Had as already mentioned, the apartment door did not close properly - this can be resolved quickly but certainly by the Hautechnik.



So we can only report good and had great 14 days on Lake Como!

From the gorgeous and timeless duplex, a private parking space is conveniently within reach from the townhouse residence. The surroundings of Piazza al Prato simply ooze ‘La Dolce Vita’, with an ancient church, colourful townhouses and trees providing welcome shade along the inviting cobbled streets.

The picturesque historical quarter of Varenna leads past authentic restaurants, cafes, wine bars and shops to the botanical gardens of Villa Monastero and the timeless vistas and cafe-lined walkway of the waterfront. Past bobbing boats and flowering wisteria, the lakeside path known as ‘La Passarella’ leads to the elegant Victorian-era promenade. Here a lovely lakeside Lido promises a delightful day of relaxation, whilst a picturesque hillside trail leads to the medieval ‘Castello di Vezio’ attraction. A car and passenger ferry service offers easy access to Bellagio, Cadenabbia and Menaggio, whilst a train station from Varenna also offers a frequent Lecco-Milan service.

Additional Sport & Adventure Activities include:

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.
