Casa Selva, Lake Como, Lombardia and The Lakes
- Propery Type:
- village close by
Casa Selva is an 80 sqm space with a terrace located in a house at the entrance of the Robilant property. Please note that the road accessing the Robilant property stops 5 meters after the house. Above Casa Selva, with a separate entrance is Casa Rossa another rental property for 8 +2 people with its own terrace, access to the garden and pool. Guests of Casa Selva cannot access the pool of Casa Rossa unless the 2 units are rented together.
The two units can be rented together or separately.
Ground floor: the terrace (furnished with table and chairs) gives access to the small living room (with a sofa and an armchair). The eat- in kitchen is fully equipped with fridge, stove (4 burns) and washing machine. There is a master bedroom and a bathroom with tub.
From the bathroom an additional upstairs double /twin bedroom room is available. PLEASE NOTE THAT: the access to this bedroom is only through the bathroom, therefore we suggest this house only for 2 people or for a family of 4. Not suitable for 2 couples.
Casa Selva is a simple, recently restored accommodation. Because it has no access to the garden (reserved to Casa Rossa) and its terrace is close to the road we suggest to rent it together with Casa Rossa (together they can accommodate up to 14 people). The two properties can be connected through the twin bedroom upstairs.
The Robilant property can also be rented all together, renting Casa Rossa, Casa Selva, Villa Pupa and Casa Giovanni in this case up to 31 people can be accommodated in this large estate with pool (please visit Robilant).
Varenna is a nice lake shore town in lake Como. Built on a rocky promontory it was for centuries a sentinel at the heart of the lake.
Varenna today is a quietly refined town with beautiful old houses and romantic panoramas. The climate is particularly mild, as witnessed by the presence of olive and cypress trees together with other botanical specimens normally found in much warmer climates. Along the lake front is a romantic walkway, abounding in flora, linking the town centre and Olivedo, the landing point for ferries and steamers.
Varenna is the ideal starting point for a visit to the north/center of Italy and southern Swiss Alps. It is less then two hours from the Milano Malpensa airport and 1 hour from the Milano Linate airport.
Places to visit: the castle of Vezio ( 5 minutes walking from the villa)
The gardens of villa Monastero, a neo-classical garden offering a long walk along the lakeshore.
Bellagio and Menaggio are 15 minutes by Ferry. So is Tremezzo, and the famous Villa Carlotta and Como with its ancient monuments, churches and shopping all await.
