Property description

This apartment (ID 311) is the ideal choice for large parties of friends and family who wish to stay in a luxurious Apartment which is situated in an authentic and timeless Italian village yet is within easy reach of the Lakeshore and just a short drive from the cosmopolitan city of Como.

Situated in the charming and very romantic medieval village of Faggeto Lario on the unspoilt eastern lakeshore of Lake Como close to Como city, this beautiful Apartment has been furnished to a luxurious finish throughout.
On entering this apartment, a spacious and stylish slate tiled open plan living area greets guests.

The contemporary fully-fitted kitchen provides the ideal place to home-cook for dinner parties, with a cupboard area, dishwasher and Oven to one wall and a free standing island unit with sink, hob and preparation area situated in the centre of the kitchen.

A contemporary long dining table with stylish seating accompanies the kitchen and a spacious and luxurious living area offers the ideal place to relax and unwind, with a 4 piece modernist leather suite and TV and DVD player.

This apartment offers versatile and very comfortable sleeping accommodation for up to 10 guests, with 3 luxurious and individually styled double bedrooms and 2 further stylish bedrooms with separate twin single beds.

The apartment also features 3 newly fitted high quality bathrooms which have been beautifully finished throughout and which feature all the desired sanitary ware.

Outside the apartment guests can enjoy its sunny garden with terrace and communal swimming pool! We would like to advise our guests that large vehicle access is difficult down the steep cobbled driveway and that pedestrian access for elderly guests may be difficult.

Como:
Como is situated at the head of the lake and is an ancient town over 400 years old with magnificent churches and historic monuments.

The largest and southernmost town on the lake isn't likely to charm you quite as much as some of the other towns and villages, but the historic center is lovely if you take the time to stroll it and pop into its little churches and cafes.
A center of silk making for a very long time, this city traces its roots to the Gauls, and, after them, the Romans, and bustles with commerce and industry. You'll probably want to stay in one of the more peaceful settings farther up the lake, but Como amply rewards a day's visit, with some fine Renaissance churches and palaces and a nice lake front promenade.

For visitor information the regional tourist office has extensive details on hotels, restaurants, and camping grounds around the lake, from its offices at Piazza Cavour 17 (tel. 031-269-712 or 031-264-215). The tourist office opens daily 9am to 1pm and 2 to 5pm (sometimes closed Sun in winter). There is also a city tourist office in a little trailer that has moved around a bit since it opened in 2000, but stays near Piazza del Duomo, and seems to have settled on a spot along Via Maestri Comacini around the right side of the cathedral (tel. 031-337-1063). It's open Monday to Friday 10am to 12:30pm and 2:30 to 6pm, Saturday and Sunday 10am to 6pm. Trains run between 1 to 3 times per hour connecting Milan and Como's Station San Giovanni on Piazzale San Gottardo.

Also from Milan's Piazza Garibaldi station, 55-60 min and high speed from Milan's Stazione Centrale station, 40 minutes.

At the heart of Como's walled Old Town, Piazza San Fedele has many 400-year-old buildings, and the basilica, one of the masterpieces of the maestri comacini (masters of Como). At the top of Via Cantù you'll see the old wall's most spectacular standing tower, the Porta Vittoria.

Nearby is the very austere church of San Abbondio. Rest awhile in its cloisters, then climb the hill behind it and go to the top of the Baradello Tower, for a lovely view of the entire lake. Next, walk back down the hill and visit Como's third great basilica, the early romanesque San Corpoforo.

Exploring the village of Faggeto Lario guests will find many fascinating buildings, ancient Piazzas, medieval passageways and romantic churches.

The village provides some basic amenities for residents including a delicatessen, Restaurant and Cafe/Bar. Due to its hillside location a car is essential for convenience and ease of movement to the lake front and the other nearby towns.

The charming and very pretty Lake front is just a short drive away by car from the village and features many pretty harbours and local beauty spots. The cosmopolitan city of Como can be reached by car in less than 25 minutes and provides a wide variety of cafes, bars, restaurants, boutique shops, galleries and tourist sites such as the famous Duomo, the elegant Villa Olmo, the Volta museum and the funicular tram.

Golf:

There are Golf clubs around Lake Como: The Cadenabbia & Menaggio Golf Club celebrating 100 years this year and 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. Tel: +39 344 321 03. Green Fees: Weekdays EU 55, Weekends and Holidays EU 70 Euros; Golf Cart Rental EU 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).

Ski:

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
