Villa | 2 bedrooms | sleeps 7
A lovely independent house located in the small, historic village of Gallio, in Rezzonico. There are fantastic panoramic views from the properties hillside position. From the terrace and two balconies, you can enjoy amazing views across to Varenna and Bellagio which is the point where the Lake Como divides into two legs.
The house is arranged over four floors and sleeps up to seven people. On the lower ground floor is the kitchen and dining area. The living room and Satelite TV & DVD entertertainment and one of the two bathrooms are on the ground floor. The Master bedroom and second bathroom are on the first floor, followed by a cosy second bedroom with three single beds in the attic on the second floor.
From the kitchen, there is access to a good sized terrace looking out towards the lake. A great spot for 'al fresco' dining on a warm summers evening with the breathtaking scenery of Lake Como all around you.
The house is located in the hillside village of Gallio, surrounded by traditional, rustic Italian houses and stunning scenery. This authentic, mountain village is one of the most beautiful on Lake Como and will undoubtedly leave you with unforgettable memories. Due to its hillside location, its worth mentioning that from the main road, you will need to walk through stone steps, 100 meters from the house. The location is very peaceful and is an ideal place for a very relaxed holiday.
We would like to point out that the two well kept bathrooms are accessed on the lounge terrace and off the shared bedroom terrace.

A visiter to Rezzonico said "During our seven day visit to Lake Como we explored more than a dozen towns and climbed a hundred cobble stone walkways. But without question a secluded lane in Rezzonico stands out as the quintessential Lago di Como path. Entirely residential except for the Ristorante Lauro located about a third of the way down, the stone work of the walls and the patina of the cobbles exhibited the kind of character that only time can create and the love of people who live there can maintain."
Rezzonico is one of the most charming villages on Lake Como. A castle right on the water side dominates the village, it has secluded beaches which you can only reach by foot or by boat, and a long bay covered with gravel grass. The lake is clear and clean good for swimming, sailing, surfing, etc. Rezzonico has a few restaurants, a small supermarket, bank & pharmacy. For more shopping, Menaggio is 5 km away and has a lovely lakeside promenade, charming central piazza edged with cosy cafe's. From the ferry dock, you can catch the passenger boat which cris crosses the lake.
