About the Property

Apartment, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4+3)

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.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1970

About the owner: Hello, my name is Gloria and I am a architect. This house was built by my grandfather and my father. With my family we have completely renovated in 2015 and furnished with care so that was nice and comfortable!

Why the Owner Chose Lenno CO, Italy:
This house is large and sunny: one bedroom Balbianello sees the hill, the other room sees the abbey 's Acquafredda. is in the heart of Lenno a few steps from the lake, along a side street with little traffic. Here peace and quiet reigns. On the front is a large balcony accessible from the living room from the kitchen to see them all over the Gulf of Venus with Tremezzo and his church lit up at night. The garden in front of the house was completely renovated this winter: in the Spring cherry blossoms and careful lighting enhances the green of the lawn. Everything is treated with elegance and refinement in the true Italian style!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
In our house you will feel perfectly at ease: it is comfortable, elegant, spacious, beautifully presented in detail. Cleanliness and attention to small things: Italian linens, fresh plants, the sofa and carpets. With short walk to the magnificent lake and from there a boat or hydrofoil, you can reach Menaggio, Bellagio and many other beautiful villages. Or you can walk up to the sacred mountain or continue along the coast and along a very fascinating history. Lenno is the ideal starting point for excursions but also the sweet shelter where coming home. Cooking in the large kitchen is easy and fun: you can try to make some Italian specialties! There are many shops around food: you can pick any number to buy and cook our specialty! a few paces Olificio Vanini, who for years produced our oil! Who was in our house of Lenno is back: he found all the serenity of a family vacation!
