Casa Paseo is a picturesque villa on Lake Como with a lovely garden located at the entrance of a multi-dwelling property. The front of the house looks toward the garden and the lake, while the back part of the house is at the end of a local road which stops five meters beyond the house.
Varenna is a wonderful lakeshore town on Lake Como. Built on a rocky promontory it was for centuries a sentinel at the heart of the lake. Varenna today is a quietly refined town with beautiful old houses and romantic panoramas. The climate is particularly mild, as witnessed by the presence of olive and cypress trees together with other botanical specimens normally found in much warmer climates. Along the lakefront is a romantic walkway abounding in flora, and linking the town center to Olivedo, the landing point for ferries and steamers. Varenna is the ideal starting point for a visit to the northern/central parts of Italy and the southern Swiss Alps. It is less then two hours from the Milano Malpensa airport and 1 hour from the Milano Linate airport. Places to visit: The castle of Vezio (5 minutes walking distance from the villa); the gardens of Villa Monastero, a neo-classical garden offering a long walk along the lakeshore; Bellagio and Menaggio are 15 minutes by ferry; Tremezzo and the famous Villa Carlotta; Como with its ancient monuments and churches, and its shopping area. Varenna is 10 minutes driving (all shops, restaurants, ferry and railroad station) with connections to Menaggio and Bellagio via ferry. The railroad station in Varenna connects you to Milano by train in one hour. There is a golf course in Menaggio (15 minutes by ferry plus 10 by car).
At the garden level, the entrance hall is accessed through a large patio shaded by an old wisteria. The living room with its large windows opening to the garden has a fireplace, two comfortable sofas and satellite TV. A studio with a library opens directly to the living room. On the same floor Casa Paseo offers a lake-view dining room with a table for 8 people and a separate kitchen with refrigerator, stove and washing machine. There is also a WC on this floor. A nice loggia welcomes guests to the second floor which provides access to the terrace/solarium with a view of the lake. On this floor there are three bedrooms: two double bedrooms and one twin bedroom. The twin bedroom has direct access to one of the double bedrooms. There are two bathrooms one with shower and the other with tub + separate shower and washing machine. Upstairs there is another twin bedroom with lake views (each bed has an additional pull-out bed). Casa Paseo has been recently restored and tastefully furnished with great care. The private outdoor area is shaded by old cypress and olive trees while the patio is equipped with a table and chairs.
Casa Paseo can also be rented with Villa Como and Casa Piana which are also located on this estate. Please see listing for Casa Agiato Vita for more details.
