Stay in this Lake Como villa rental overlooking the water and the nearby town of Varenna, populated with beautiful old houses and romantic panoramas. Plentiful olive and cypress trees are evidence of the mild climate in the area around this Lake Como vacation villa. Built on a rocky promontory over Lake Como, Varenna has been the heart of the area for centuries, an ideal place to explore or relax whenever you decide to leave the comfort and privacy of your villa rental on Lake Como, Italy. A romantic walkway, abounding in flora, wends along the lakefront in town, linking it to Olivedo, a landing point for ferries and steamers.
(450 m2)... Casa Antonella 3 stands amidst a wealth of greenery, looking out over red-tiled roofs to a magnificent lakeshore view. A garden fronts the property, while the back of the villa rental is at the end of a local road that stops five meters from the door. A beautiful private garden is just outside the door, including a patio with tables and chairs, and shaded by a trellis of wisteria. Old olive and cypress trees dot the property. At one end of the Lake Como property rental is an attached residence with its own kitchen and terrace; while this part is accessible from within the house, it also has a separate outside entrance. Parking is available 60 meters from the house. There are 20 steps from the house to the parking area.
