About this apartment

These two large, luxurious interconnecting apartments, one above the other, are located in the grounds of the historic Villa Capoana. Combined, (ID:140) and (ID:134), sleep up to 12 people in the most idyllic of surroundings.

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.

These newly constructed apartments offer 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 property ID 140: Two fully fitted kitchens allow you to cook for your friends & family, using fresh herbs available from the garden area behind. There are flat wide screen TV's with sky cable and DVD players in the living areas, framed by large sliding glass doors to access the spectacular terrace, giving picture-postcard views of the lake throughout the apartments. You can enjoy the heat of the sun on these front facing terraces. There are four bedrooms and four bathrooms, one of the bathrooms has a 'built–in' tiled bath tub, big enough for two, letting you relax together in style.

Enjoy the spectacular historic, monumental fountain in the private terrace gardens behind the apartments. There is a stone outdoor table & chairs where you can relax and dine under the shade of the cypress & palm trees, while listening to the gentle sound of the fountain and cascading stream which runs straight down to the lake from the fountain and the mountains above. Both apartments have an under floor heating system which keeps them warm during the colder periods and a centralized air-conditioning system with individually controlled zones to keep them cool in the summer.

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 12 people. This terrace is a wonderful extension to the living area and it goes without saying, that it is a real sun-trap!

There is also a private garage with automatic remote control doors. The property is accessed by an elevator (private keys are necessary). Fiumelatte's train station is also within walking distance of the apartments.

As mentioned above, these two apartments are connected by (lockable) internal doors which give necessary privacy between two families or a group of family & friends.

This Villa is in the village of Fiumelatte, part of the beautiful town of Varenna, just 1km 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.
