Overlooking majestic mountain peaks and the beautiful Lake Como, this holiday home in Vercana promises the perfect luxury getaway for couples or groups of 5. When you 'check-in' to this sumptuous hillside setting you can just as easily unwind as enjoy the local lake activities and nearby Italian Alp ski slopes - for true year-round holiday appeal. Its peaceful and scenic surroundings perfectly complement the luxury small-scale residence, which oozes boutique holiday flavour and is accompanied by a breathtaking pool area and sun terrace.
Accommodation - sleeps 5 in 1 bedroom & 1 bathroom
Fully-equipped for holidays in all seasons, the 4th floor apartment offers a carefree haven for effortless summertime stays and ambient winter time breaks; with electric fans, cosy central heating and sumptuous under floor heating to hand. From the breathtaking lake views that draw you in, to the bright and welcoming living room, its contemporary open plan appeal easily lets you feel at home.
As well as setting the scene for relaxed family breakfasts and ambient evening meals-in, the dining area is perfectly complemented by the alfresco dining area for 6 (situated out on the large spacious terrace). Adorned by the shade from the vine-laden trellis above, the natural canopy above offers a truly romantic appeal against a summer-filled lake view back drop. Perfectly suited for secluded lunchtime meals and candle-lit dinner parties, guests will easily be able to enjoy wining and dining their holiday away from here.
The luxury living space effortlessly flows to the spacious sleeping accommodation. Furnished with a sumptuous double bed alongside a single bed, the room offers the perfect flexible choice for family and friends staying, as well as of course for a couple looking to stay. The bedroom is further complemented by a convenient double sofa bed, which features to the lake view living room. With its handsome grey tiling, chic contemporary power shower and ambient under-shelf lighting, the modern bathroom brings a spa-like quality to morning wake-ups and tranquil evening moments.
A total number of 48 steps feature in all and from its 4th floor setting, the luxury retreat is reachable via a stairwell to the 2nd floor. From the 2nd floor guests can then enjoy an optional lift ride 2 floors down to the ground level.
Outside, the stunning lake view setting can easily be admired once more. The elevated location provides a lovely sunny aspect from which to soak up a carefree sunbathe out on the communal sun terrace, or with a splash in the residence's luxury outdoor pool (shared by 20 apartments in all). Children can also enjoy running out on the sunny lakeside lawn, whilst the far reaching mountain views will surely inspire all ages to relax and enjoy a moment's peace. For added ease, a private parking space and garage features on-site.
