Description

Enjoy a prestigious lake view location in a very luxurious apartment which is situated in the grounds of the historical Villa Capoana. The villa built in the year 1605 for the Duke of Mount Marciano in Fiumelatte 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, which was a highlight of the historic villa and is now a beautiful showpiece of the exclusive residence.

This new contemporary apartment is just 15m from the water’s edge and offers luxurious fixtures and fittings throughout. The modern features are 'state of the art' from the elegant floor tiles combined with under floor heating, independently controlled air-conditioned rooms throughout, the whirlpool bath to the bedroom and the Swiss train station clock weighing scales and 'alligator' paint effect walls in the bathrooms!

The modern features are 'state of the art' from the elegant floor tiles combined with under floor heating, independently controlled air-conditioned rooms throughout, the whirlpool bath to the bedroom and the Swiss train station clock weighing scales and 'alligator' paint effect walls in the bathrooms!

The kitchen is fully equipped with ultra modern appliances including a professional food processor and orange juice maker, a large fridge/freezer with cold water & ice dispenser in the door, a wine fridge and featuring a clever minimalist central island, which conceals a working area and sink area beneath and can slide forward to create a breakfast bar. There is also a dining table which can seat from four - twelve people when extended!

The large living space is great for entertaining - with elegant black leather sofas and a very unusual reclining 'snake effect' lounger which can be adjusted into a variety of positions. The entertainment systems are lavish - there is a 60” LG TV and DVD player and a HD 3D TV, and the whole apartment has been fitted with surround sound - even outside on the large terrace!

This apartment has a brand new jacuzzi with a neat light system, heated bubbles and a triple motor. The space is for up to 2 people.

An office area with wireless Blu tooth, fax machine and copier provide further conveniences of home and the living area also has very large glass sliding doors which gives you a magnificent, panoramic view of the lake.

Outside, you can enjoy & relax in the brand new 5 person Hydro Spa, feast with a brand new SMEG Gas BBQ and dine 'al-fresco' at the large table & chairs for up to 12 people. This apartments terrace is a wonderful extension to the living area and it goes without saying that it is a real lake view sun-trap!

This apartment features two bedrooms, conveniently with iPod charger and enjoying flexible accommodation if connected by (lockable) internal doors to another Property Ref. 140. These two stunning apartments can be rented together to create a unique 4 bedroom, 4 bathroom luxury complex sleeping up to groups of 12.

Walking under a romantic wisteria covered archway to the back entrance of the property there are custom made outdoors steel drawers for firewood storage and also stairs lead down from the gate to the private garage with automatic remote control doors. The property is accessed by elevator directly onto the terrace!

The apartment is located in the town of Fiumelatte, just 1km from the beautiful town of Varenna 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 nearby are Villa Cipressi with its terraced gardens cascading down to the shores & Villa Monastero, a true showcase on Lake Como. With the mild climate & abundant sunshine & warmth right into the evening; olive & cypress trees abound and the local area is a paradise for those wanting to relax and unwind during their stay.

Skiing in the area is bountiful; resorts such as Madesimo, only 1.15hr north of Colico and the local ski resort of Piani di Bobbio, only 40 minutes away -

*** Reviews ~

This is just an amazing apartment! So elegantly decorated and beautifully situated on Lake Como at Varenna! We traveled with another couple and had plenty of space and privacy with two bedrooms and two baths. The modern features add to the elegance and the air conditioning was a rare treat for the area. Finally, the balcony is so large with relaxing chairs and a table at which we ate many nights! The view is beyond beautiful. The access to the ferry and the town of Varenna is perfect as well. Overall this is an incredible place!

We're happy to give some feedback on our holiday at the Della Fontana Penthouse.Firstly, your staffs help, particularly Viviana, in assisting us with answering many questions was particularly useful and much appreciated. Unfortunately, our seaplane ride was cancelled due to the weather (not the fault of yourselves).Secondly, our apartment was very nice with spectacular views. The only problem we had was understanding how things worked, particularly the central heating, even though there were instructions within the property. It was a good thing that Brad was on hand to assist us.Thirdly, the area was beautiful and something anyone would dream of experiencing. Unfortunately, we found many shops, cafes and restaurants closed at this time of year. You really need to go from Easter onwards to ensure everything was open. We were disappointed that shops had very strange opening times so we couldn't 'stock' up with food and drink.We had read that the Cafe Varenna was excellent, but it was only open twice during the time we were there. However, the Hoseteria del Plantano in Fuimelatte was excellent for food and Norma was extremely helpful. Varenna was much too quiet at this time of year.

We had an absolutely wonderful holiday! The penthouse was a fantastic "home base" for our stay. After a day of skiing in Bobbio, the jacuzzi came in handy for our sore muscles!! It was picturesque to sit in jacuzzi at night looking at the snow capped mountains while drinking some wonderful wines. We can't thank you enough for all of your hospitality and attention during our stay. We will definitely be calling you first for our next holiday on Lake Como!The above review submitted by Danelle - USA, who stayed at Della Fontana Penthouse on 29th December 2013.

We loved the property. It has a beautiful view and a great location. Your directions and photos were very good and made it really easy to find. The staff was very helpful. I mainly corresponded by email and always got a reply within a very short period of time.

Your service was very good, no need for improvement. When we could not turn on the kitchen light (never thought of having to use a remote for that) I called the owner and had a quick reply and help.
