Lovely accommodation with amazing views of both lake and mountains and set within the rustic cobbled streets at the heart of the historic centre of Acquaseria yet only a short few minutes' walk to the nearest beach. Casa Rossa is stylishly furnished and equipped to a very high standard. Arranged over two floors, the entrance hall on the ground floor is warm & welcoming with a 'wine cellar' for you to enjoy - all we ask is that you replace any empty bottles for our next guests. The layout of the house is 'upside down' and the 2 bedrooms are on the ground floor. The master bedroom has a king sized double bed and the second bedroom has twin beds. Both bedrooms lead onto a small private terrace with lake and mountain views. A bathroom with shower completes the ground floor accommodation and ...Lovely accommodation with amazing views of both lake and mountains and set within the rustic cobbled streets at the heart of the historic centre of Acquaseria yet only a short few minutes' walk to the nearest beach. Casa Rossa is stylishly furnished and equipped to a very high standard.

The layout of the house is 'upside down' and the 2 bedrooms are on the ground floor. The master bedroom has a king sized double bed and the second bedroom has twin beds. Both bedrooms lead onto a small private terrace with lake and mountain views. A bathroom with shower completes the ground floor accommodation and a spiral staircase leads up to the first floor. The first thing you will notice at the top of the stairs is the panoramic view before you. Patio doors running almost the full width of the front of the house open onto a private terrace - lake, mountains and sailing boats take up the entire vista (180 degrees and beyond). The terrace has a table and chairs and there are also a couple of sun beds for those who want to spend a lazy day 'at home'. It is a real sun-trap all year round and it's great to slide wide the doors and enjoy some indoor/outdoor living. The lounge is furnished with a soft brown leather sofa and armchair with co-ordinating cushions, rugs and throws. This is complemented by an antique wooden trunk with lamps and spotlights to showcase the wonderful wooden beams in the vaulted ceiling. A contemporary glass and chrome dining table completes the room. Entertainment is fully catered for with wifi, a flat screen TV with satellite channels and a DVD player for both DVDs and CD's. A small selection of books, DVD's and games are available. The kitchen is open plan so shares the view from the lounge and is fully equipped with fridge freezer, microwave, dishwasher and all the other kitchen essentials that you would expect from first class accommodation. The first floor also boast a very convenient second bathroom with shower and washing machine. There is also free use of a garage - great for keeping your car, motorbikes and bikes. Please note , the house is in the ancient Borgo which is a maze of cobbled streets with some steps and climbs which may make it difficult if you are of restricted mobility. More

About the neighbourhood
Acquaseria is very close to the 'Golden Triangle' of Bellagio, Varenna and Menaggio and is part of the comune of San Siro. It is home to one the oldest churches on Lake Como dating back to 1622 and the historic borgo is home to many Italian couples and their families, giving it a warm and welcoming atmosphere and where 'tranquil' is their word of choice. Acquaseria is well served with a number of good restaurants/pizzerias, bars and coffee shops all within a few minutes stroll of the house. A small fortnightly market sells cheese, prosciutto, fish and other essentials. Wander around the cobbled streets and you will see many religious paintings and icons which are lovingly preserved and cherished by the locals. Acquaseria is also one of only a handful of villages on the lake to have its o...
How to get there
Anybody who prefers not to hire a car can arrive at Acquaseria via the bus from Como town or from Varenna via the railway, ferry and bus (subject to arrival times and timetables) or from Colico via the railway and bus. The journey on public transport is cheap, efficient and easy and if you can get a window seat the views are absolutely stunning. From the train station in Varenna it is entirely possible to take a day trip to Milan or even Venice. Skiing is plentiful with many resorts within a 90 minutes drive of Casa Rossa and this includes the stylish resort of St Moritz which is an ideal destination all year round.
