There are further residential houses in the neighbourhood and the whole area has a truly rural appeal with fields, trees and a mountain stream. Close to the Bay of Piona, it is only 5 minutes by car to the centre of town and the beach. A well-tended garden - landscaped with palms, fruit trees and flowering shrubs. Facing the mountains is the extensive lawn area - ideal for playing and relaxing. The holiday idyll is complete with the solar heated swimming pool (with underwater illumination) and the children´s area. As well as the communal garden, every apartment has its own delightful, large outside area with garden furniture, sun loungers, parasol and barbeque. Situated above the pool area is the holiday property Casa Bellavista with four apartments. The garden and the pool are for the communal use of the guests of both houses. On-site Mobility:
Your holiday home is a great starting point for walking or hiking to the town centre, lake and also up into the mountains. Easily within walking distance (approx 700 m) is a small grocery shop where you can buy fresh rolls each morning. (Your morning rolls can also be delivered.) Above the property, approx 850 m away, is a traditional Osteria, or mountain restaurant. Why not enjoy the panoramic views as you walk along to the neighbouring district of Villatico (approx 10 minutes). Once there, you will find a choice of between 4 - 5 restaurants.
Only a short distance away is the centre of Colico. Take some time to wander through the narrow streets, browse around the many shops or visit the restaurants, bars, cafes and typical Lombardy trattorias. The beautifully featured Piazza at the harbour extends an invitation to linger in one of the cafes or to simply sit and gaze at the spectacular scenery.
The pretty town of Colico is also a gateway for travellers wishing to explore the lake and surrounding area. At the harbour, a public ferry service from the boa's’ landing stage will take you to all the attractive towns and sights around the lake. A regional train service runs directly from the small train station of Colico south to the fashion capital of Milan (with panoramic views of the lake) or
north to Chiavenna/Sondrio.
