A modern Rustico-style Retreat with breathtaking views!
This apartment is situated in a beautiful newly-constructed (October 2009) high-quality Rustico style residence (ID 321), enjoying an elevated position over the charming semi-rural village of Pianello del Lario which is situated along the desireable well-connected central western lakeshore. The local amenities include a bakery with fresh bread and pastries, a supermarket, restaurants, sport bar, pharmacy and post office. Pianello also has its own Ferry port and sandy beaches with waterfront dining where all types of water sports can be enjoyed.
Approaching the property by private gated walkway the position provides magnificent lake views and sunny exposure. This is one of 4 apartments in a charming Rustico style new building which blends very well with the surroundings. It boasts arched windows adding a certain romance and ideal framework for breathtaking lake and mountain views of the Italian and Swiss Alps.
Inside is a bright and spacious modern open plan living room with beautiful new kitchen offering every amenity. Dining area seating up to 6 guests also features in the open plan room, as well as luxurious seating area which provides two stunning leather sofas, a 42" flat screen TV with DVD player, Internet and two fold-up single beds for an additional 2 guests.
The tiled room leads to the sleeping accommodation which consists of two double bedrooms and a further 3rd bedroom with two singles that can be joined if needed. The Master bedroom has a large en-suite bathroom. We don't want to say "newly installed". Two out of three of the bedrooms have stunning panoramic lake views!
A second modern fitted bathroom has a spacious shower. For the guests' convenience there is a washing machine in the storage area.
This fantastic property boasts a sunny panoramic lake view garden with a babbling brook running alongside. The ground is mainly laid to lawn with a sloping grass area and a flat level terrace offering two outdoor dining areas; one of which is custom-made in stone.
Sitting here with a glass of chilled wine and good company will be made all the more memorable by the incredible views, which are absolutely breathtaking and feature the natural surrounding landscape, the pretty rustic semi-rural villages and the serene Lake with its dramatic mountain peaks beyond.
The apartment also offers two parking spaces to the front of the Residence as a car is highly recommended due to the hillside location of the property.
Although the situation of the property is beautifully serene there are amenities close by which are just a short drive away. The beautiful lakeside towns of Cremia and Domasso both offer local amenities and also provide Water sport activities and are situated just 4km away from Pianello.
PLEASE NOTE: This property includes wireless internet free of charge!

Pianello del Lario
Lombardy - Lake Como Area:
The Italian Lakes are a little slice of paradise. Elegant ribbons of blue water stretch out ahead, folded into the sun-baked foothills, with a spectacular back drop of the snow-capped Alps.
Lake Como offers hidden treasures just waiting for the visitor to discover them: charming corners forgotten by time, lakeside villages where nothing seems to have changed for centuries.
It is steeped in history with an immense collection of churches, architectural masterpieces and works of art covering the centuries. The lake is situated in a basin surrounded by wooded mountains, and offers an extremely varied landscape, with its' shores featuring a succession of pastures, and woods as well as harsh and impressive rock formations.
All this alongside elegant, lakeside villas with sub-tropical gardens, which provide a haven of peace and tranquillity and chic resorts such as Varenna, Bellagio, Menaggio and Como itself.
Warming, in spriing and graced with natural beauty, the lakes are still a place to draw breath and wonder. Lake Como, oriented north-south, ringed by characterful old villages often wedged onto narrow beaches between rugged cliffs and water. Those classic lake images of flower strewn balconies, Baroque gardens and splendid waterside villas can be found here in abundance. Dotted around and between the lakes are some of Italy's finest art cities, such as Milan, Verona & Bergamo.
The most romantic and picturesque villages on the lake are Santa Maria Rezzonico, Varenna (15 min by ferry) & Bellagio (8 min by ferry), Lenno (visit Villa Balbianello, location for 007's Casino Royale as well as Villa Gaeta, right here in Menaggio) & Laglio (where George Clooney owns Villa Oleandra).
