Luxury penthouse apartment located in the village of Fiumelatte, just 1km from the beautiful town of Varenna on the Eastern shore of Lake Como. The apartment offers top quality fixtures and fittings throughout and also boasts gorgeous panoramic views of the lake including the 'Golden Triangle' (Bellagio, Menaggio and Varenna). There are quite a few steps up this newly renovated building which leads to the apartment. Open up the front door of this top floor penthouse however and you will be overwhelmed by the wide and stunning view of the lake with the town of Bellagio perfectly framed in the front windows! The inside of the apartment is stylishly furnished and everything has been designed to maximise your enjoyment. The terrace is just the most wonderful place to enjoy the exclusive lake views and is also large enough to dine 'alfresco' and relax with a glass of Italian wine, with a large dining area and an additional lakefront eating area. There is also a very stylish bathroom with a shower, bidet and WC. The apartment is fully air-conditioned and WIFI enabled with a comfortable double sofa bed to the lounge for additional guests and a fire and gas alarm with automatic gas turn off. 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. But neither he, nor anyone else, has ever been able to work it out. Varenna is one of the most picturesque towns on the lake, with its steep winding alleys lined with charming homes, flowering balconies and lace-curtained windows. Just above it is the ancient castle where Theodolinda, Queen of the Lombard's is said to have died in the 7th century. Two famed villas to visit here are Villa Cipressi, with terraced gardens cascading right down to the shores, and Villa Monastero, a true showcase for botanical gardens. 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 - http://www.pianidibobbio.com
