A very luxurious apartment in the grounds of the historic Villa Capoana.
Villa Capoana was constructed in the year 1605 for the Duke of Mount Marciano in the locality of Fonte Uga in Fiumelatte. It was home to noble families for many generations until; just recently, a part of it was reconstructed. In renovating, the construction company has ensured the preservation of the monumental fountain and garden area, a highlight of the historic villa and now showpiece of the condominium, thus retaining the beauty of the area.
This newly constructed apartment offers top quality fixtures and fittings throughout. The interior finishing's of the apartment are beautifully done, from the bleached-oak parquet floor to the elegant painted suede finish walls. It is fitted with all modern appliances to facilitate this apartment: A full kitchen allows you to cook your favourite Italian dishes, using fresh herbs available in the garden area. A built –in tile bath tub, big enough for two, lets you relax together in style. There is a flat wide screen TV with sky cable and DVD player in the living area, framed by two large sliding glass doors to access the spectacular terrace, giving picture-postcard views of the lake throughout the apartment.
You can enjoy the heat of the sun on this front terrace while preparing a barbeque on the outdoor grill, or stay cool in the garden behind.
A special feature of this apartment is that it has direct access to the amazing monumental fountain which runs down from the mountain. You can sit here in the private garden sipping wine, or dining in the shade of the cypress and palm trees while watching the water run through the fountain down to the lake, only a few meters below.
The apartment has an under floor heating system which keeps it warm during the colder season and centralized air-conditioning with individually controlled zones to keep it cool in the summer. It also has a private garage with automatic remote control doors. The property is accessed by elevator with private keys. Fiumelatte train station is also very near the apartment.
This apartment is connected by (lockable) internal doors to Della Fontana Loft apartment (see www.lakecomohomes.com). The two apartments can be rented together to create a unique 4- bathroom luxury complex sleeping up to 12. Alternatively, the Dolce Vita apartment can be rented as a one bedroom/one bathroom apartment without the studio bedroom and at a reduced price.
The apartment is in the village of Fiumelatte, part of the beautiful town of Varenna, just 1 km away on the Eastern shore of Lake Como. The property has been designed to take full advantage of the lakes premier view of the 'Golden Triangle' (Bellagio, Menaggio and Varenna).
Varenna is home to Italy's shortest river, the Fiumelatte. Only 250 meters long, it rushes, frothy and milky-white (hence the name) down the rock face and crashes into the lake from the end of March to the end of October each year. And then it stops - just like that. Leonardo da Vinci climbed down to find out where the water came from (without success!), as recorded in his Codice Atlantico notebook.
Two famed villas to visit here are Villa Cipressi, with terraced gardens cascading down to the shores & Villa Monastero, a true showcase. With the mild climate & abundant sunshine & warmth right into the evening; olive & cypress trees abound as well as many other varieties of lush, tropical plants, typical if the lake.
