Carate Urio condo description

On the first floor, with private balcony,therefore almost in contact with the lake, is the 'Larius apartment', a spacious(70 square meters) a luminous one bedroom apartment, with A/C in this enchanting 19th century building, which was once a hotel and has recently been carefully and completely renovated and is now home to many comfortable and elegant apartments.

Situated on the lake road, running along the western shore of Lake Como, the 'Larius apartment' has a large open plan living area, you will love the private balcony for 'al fresco' dining, beautiful kitchen and dining area from which, when seated, all you can see is water from the windows over looking the lake. The comfortable bedroom has a king-size bed and leather finished furnishings. There is a bathroom with 'jacuzzi' shower unit and also a utility room with washer and dryer.

The building is a beautiful gated building with private underground parking, situated on the boarder of the ancient village of Carate Urio, still unspoiled by modernization, keeping its old world feeling with characteristic streets and stepped lanes crossed by low bridges which join the century old houses.In fact many famous people have decided to make this area their own private paradise, for example Gianni Versace, whose beautiful villa is just 3 kms. south of the Lario apartment and also George Clooney's, delightful lake side home is 1 km north in the village of Laglio.

Everything here is new and has been chosen with great care, there are teak floors in the living area and beautiful Italian tiles in the bathroom. The furnishings, appliances, all linens and dinnerware are also brand new. The simple but tasteful furniture accommodates all tastes and offers our guests everything they need for a comfortable holiday, short break and business trip to Lake Como.

              Manager info

              About: I look after this apartment for a very good friend of mine who bought it as an investment, thinking that he would use it during the summer months. Instead, he finds himself very busy, he is in the silk indursty (Como is the silk capital of Italy) and can hardly use it at all. This is why he decided to rent it for vacation rentals. It is in a very prestigious condo in Carate Urio, closer to George Clooney's home, close to the lake and close to the city of Como, so is convenient for everything.

              The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
              Elegant condo, lake views, private balcony, Air conditioning, peacefull surroundings,close to the lake, private parking
