Apartment | 2 bedrooms | sleeps 5
Casa Eleganza : an elegant villa comprising a two bedroom apartment with panoramic views, in a quiet area in the heart of Tremezzo.
Originally a large villa, the property has recently undergone substantial refurbishment to create a luxurious ground floor apartment with garden and stunning lake views.
Through the double electric gates you can drive into garden terrace area and park your car in a private space. You will be immediately struck by the beauty of the area and the lovely lake view that will be yours to admire from your garden, which is equipped with table, chairs and sun loungers.
Entry to the apartment is via one of three spectacular sliding glass doors that face the garden and the lake. On entering the apartment into the large combined living/dining/kitchen space the quality and elegance of the interior is immediately apparent. The owners have invested in a quality build and beautiful furnishings - all designed to make the apartment feel elegant yet comfortable with two sumptuous sofas for example.
The floors are covered with Italian ceramics and the walls painted in crisp white to give the apartment a light and airy feel. The day furnishings are a blend of quality reproduction and antique pieces and are tastefully accessorised.
In the kitchen and dining area there is a good sized dining table and chairs and a shaker style kitchen that is fully equipped, including a dishwasher and should satisfy even the most determined of cooks!
From the living space there is an adjacent snug that leads to the bedrooms and the bathroom.
The master bedroom has polished wood floors and white walls. It has generous wardrobes and storage spaces, a large double bed, a sliding door to the garden and an en-suite bathroom luxuriously appointed with Italian ceramics featuring a large walk-in shower, WC and vanity unit.

The Lombardy region
Lake Como, known to locals as "Il Lario" ( lt.: Lacus Larius), with its depth of 410 m it is the deepest lake in the lower Alpine region. It's characteristic Y-form divides into three lake arms: Colico in the North, Lecco in the Southeast and Como in the Southwest.
The town of Como with 100.000 inhabitants is a beautiful and ancient town. Since the 15th century it has been an important centre for silk, the material, which exemplifies luxury, refinement and prestige. Como had been the hub between East and West, between India, China and Europe.
The cathedral ?Santa Maria Maggiore", built in a renaissance and gothic style, is one of the important churches in the North of Italy. Directly on the lakeside is ?Templio Voltaino" and a museum dedicated to the physician Alessondro Volta, the inventor of the battery, as well as other important monuments of the epoch.
Menaggio is perfectly located in middle the west shore. There is an interesting and scenic pathway alongside the lake and the "Lido Giardino" offers an excellent swimming pool and beach facilities. In nearby Loveno there is a gym with tennis courts as well as an eighteen-hole golf course.
Bellagio lies directly opposite Menaggio and has been a centre of international tourism since the 19th century. Here you can go for unforgettable walks along the lake. In the "Villa Melzi" and in the "Villa Serbelloni" one can admire the gardens with its exotic plants and classical sculpture.
Just 4 km from Tremezzo lies the "Isola Comacina", the only island on the lake. It can be reached from Sala Comacini by boat. The island has saved many traces of its history, e.g. the smallest Romanesque church and a baptismal church from the 5th century. A small restaurant, which opened in 1947, still exists and here one can savour fish dishes from the lake and other specialities from the area. A tour round the island takes around half an hour.
Only a mere two kilometres from Tremezzo, towards Como, lies Lenno, a beautiful unspoiled spot called the "Gulf of Venere". Here one really must visit the church of "Santo Stefano", the abbey "l'Abbazia dell' Acquafredda" and the marvellous Villa "Balbianello", which dates from the 17th century.
These are but just a few of the many places of natural beauty, art treasures and outstanding architecture, which the lake Como region can offer you.
"Tremezzina" (a union of the towns Colonno, Ossuccio, Lenno, Tremezzo und Griante) extends over the west shore of the lake Como, directly opposite from Bellagio. The climate is very mild and the vegetation lush.
Since the Roman times this small piece of Italy has been known for its "eternal spring". The tranquil gardens, the olive- and myrtle trees surrounding noble residences and the many picturesque towns along the lake, serve as the frame for romantic lake Como. Tremezzo is less than one hour's car drive from Milan. It is accessible by public transport and also by steamboats, hydrofoils and private water taxis. Car ferries run on a regular basis.
The mild climate has contributed to make Tremezzina to a wonderful holiday resort: The German Chancellor, Konrad Adenauer regularly spent his holidays here, Queen Victoria of England, Guiseppe Verdi and many other famous personalities have stayed here. Enchanting villas and large hotels, some dating from the 18th century, make Tremezzo an object of international tourism. In Rogaro, one of the antique sectors of Tremezzo, high above the lake, one can visit an antique tower dating from the Middle Ages. The famous "Asparagus-feast" in honour of the "black Madonna" is celebrated here every year in May. From Intignano, where the hotel "La Perla" is located, one can take a footpath to the nearby ?Crocione" mountain
The ?Villa Carlotta", internationally renowned for its magnificent park, is a masterpiece of architecture and botany, where fragrant azaleas, thriving rhododendrons, lemon trees and banana, bamboo, coffee and tea plants compete with each other for the visitor's attention. Each room in the villa has is its own special piece of antiquity, which include works of art by Canova and Hayez.
