Lenno is an important centre, on the western shore of Lake Como, and is situated between the headland of Lavedo and Porlezza. This is the starting point of a coastal area, known as Tremezzina, which ends at the Maiolica.
The tombs and archaelogical finds, that have been brought to light, give testimony to the Roman origins of the village.
The Comachi historian, from the 17th century, claimed that this was the site of 'Comoedia', which was one of the two villas of Plinio il Giovane (1st century A.C.).
Not far from the village, there is Azzano; it was here, in an area called Giulino, that Benito Mussolini and his mistress Claretta Petacci were shot, in 1.945.
Starting from Lenno there is a panoramic, thought strenous, path that goes up Monte di Tremezzo (1,700 mts.).
There is a beautiful shore of the lake, rounding the headland, which Villa Balbianello stands on, as far as Isola Comacina.
In the middle of the country, 50 m from the beach, among the Villa Balbianello and the 'Abbey of the cold water' there is this elegant apartment.
Ideal central location to visit the surrounding area. From the apartment you can enjoy a breathtaking Balbianello's mountains view. From the balcony you can have a picturesque view of part of the Gulf of Venus with the Church of Tremezzo, very beautiful when lit up at night. Everything around it is green.
The apartment is the perfect place for a lifestyle vacation with a strong local touch of Italian culture.
Everything here is new and has been chosen with great care, there are teak floors in the badroom and marble floors in the living area and 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 Como, Milan or Switzerland.
The apartment is also ideal for those who do not want to be troubled with driving in Italy. The local bus stops directly near the apartment. There is also a public bus service from Milan Malpensa airport and Como is also well served by the international train service. a the lake there is a lot of boat from Como, Menaggio or Ravenna.
We can also offer an excellent English speaking taxi driver service, which is available on request. Switzerland is also a short drive away, 45 minutes by car, where you can find the City of Lugano, Campione D'Italia, with it's famous 'Casino' and lovely lake front walk. The famous 'Jet Set' resort of St. Moritz is a two hour drive away.
Finally the apartment is along the Greenway of the lake Como: a pedestrian road from Colonno village, to Villa Balbianello, to Cadenabbia and Griante. 13 km going through old villages, crossing the site of the ancients, see church, monuments and villas, touching lake view, but also restaurant, bar, shop, etc.
