About the property

4 Persons, 2 Beds, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms

A fabulous interconnecting apartment; with equally fabulous lake views!

Enjoying a breath- taking location just metres from the lakefront, with views towards the picturesque town of Bellagio and Menaggio, this beautiful modern retreat provides the perfect choice for 2 couples and groups of 4. Comprising of 2 inter-connecting 1-bed apartments, the layout offers welcome independence and privacy whilst away.

The spacious retreat is situated in a beautiful modern residence with private garage and lift access. Its location along a main lake road places guests within enviable reach of the village amenities and train station of Fiumelatte, as well as the tourist highlights and ferry links of Varenna.

Guests can either reach the property from the stairs leading from the road level or from the same steps which lead from the private garage level. Guests are asked to note that the 30 external steps make this property unsuitable for elderly guests and young children.

Once you have climbed the flight of stairs from the road level or garage block, a sunny lake view terrace greets guests.

Inside the lovely apartment, the French doors to both interconnecting apartments invites sunny lake views to flood into each of the stunning modern open plan living rooms; which are both furnished to a high contemporary standard. A flat screen SAT TV with DVD player, music stereo and free WIFI feature to each living space, alongside a modern equipped Kitchen Diner.

Each fully equipped kitchen is equipped with all the desired appliances for preparing delicious meals during your stay. The appliances include a gas hob oven, toaster, microwave, dishwasher, coffee machine, kettle and fridge freezer.

Guests can relax and enjoy dining both inside or outside; with the terrace providing a fabulous alfresco dining area; with lake views across the ancient villa grounds to take in.

The sleeping accommodation is perfect for 2 couples staying together, with 2 spacious lake view double bedrooms and two newly fitted modern shower rooms provided.

The accommodation also benefits from a washing machine, ironing facilities, a clothes horse, 2 hairdryers and 2 universal shaver plugs.

Guests of Bella Vita Grande can also benefit from the new private jacuzzi, which is installed out on the sunny terrace.

Outside, the surroundings are truly sublime. The original Villa Capoana which once stood here was constructed in 1605 for the Duke of Mount Marciano.

Today, the grounds of the exclusive modern lake view residence retain many original features of the historical villa, including a stunning monumental shell-laden fountain. Mixing the old with the new, the lake view grounds are perfectly at ease against the timeless lake view backdrop.

From the residence, guests can enjoy dining out at the local authentic restaurants of Fiumelatte, Lierna and Varenna. A wide selection of local amenities are also on offer, including grocery shops and a train station with links to Varenna, Bellano and Milan. The beach at Lierna provides the perfect place to relax by the lake for the day and water sports are all located on the central lake.

The famous picturesque resort town of Varenna provides the ideal opportunity to fully soak up the timeless romantic charm of the lake, with its medieval cobbled streets leading past cafe lined piazzas, boutique shops and romantic wine bars to secret romantic vistas and beautiful lakefront walks.

The ancient Castello di Vezio is situated above Varenna and with its medieval enactments, falconry displays and banquets, is a popular visitor attraction during the summer months, as well as the breathtaking lakeside botanical gardens of Villa Monastero.

Varenna offers a fast and frequent car and passenger ferry service to Bellagio, Menaggio and Cadenabbia, making this location perfect for accessing all the many and varied central lake activities and attractions!

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.

From the residence guests can enjoy dining out at the local authentic restaurants of Fiumelatte, Linate and Varenna as well as the wide selection of local amenities which include grocery shops and train station with links to Milan conveniently located in Fiumelatte. The beach at Linate provides the perfect place to relax by the lake for the day and water sports are all located on the central lake.

The famous picturesque resort town of Varenna provides the ideal opportunity to fully soak up the timeless romantic charm of the lake, with its medieval cobbled streets leading past cafe lined piazzas, boutique shops and romantic wine bars to secret romantic vistas and beautiful lakefront walks.

The ancient Castello di Vezio is situated above Varenna and with its medieval enactments, falconry displays and banquets, is a popular visitor attraction during the summer months, as well as the breathtaking lakeside botanical gardens of Villa Monastero.
