The iconic view that defines our property, exactly what you see from  the living room
Another perspective, another day, taken in mid-morning
And another..
View as you walk 50 m to the right of the property heading towards the mountain stream
And if you go a bit higher up....autumn is setting in, this is mid-October
From a few meters to the right of the property. Your private patio is on the left
The pool is the first thing you see as you descend in the funicular from the car park
Your private patio. Where else for a glass of fine Italian wine?
Once you are seated here you will find it hard to leave..
Enjoy the night life....
Living and dining area.  And, yes, the view is real
The sofa is ultra-confortable
Note the sofa bed on the right, makes a very comfortable double bed.
Dining area and kitchen beyond.
Now sit down to watch your favourite DVD, or enjoy our book collection
Dining area, with living room in the background
You will sleep well here
Fully equipped kitchen
Bathroom, door leading to WC is on the left
Perfectly positioned pool
Swimming pool from another perspective, picture taken in October
This corner is the best place to catch the sunset
Sunset corner, in all its glory in mid-autumn
Reserved for those seeking solitude
The gardens immediately to the side of the apartment. A riot of colour for much of the year
Gardens as seen from the west boundary. Apartment is on the right after the steps
Gardens in front of the property looking east
If you prefer to walk down rather than take the funicular, this is what you will see
Another view from the footpath. Late autumn afternoon
You will also pass this on your way
From above the rear entrance, looking NW
The rear entrance, leads past the church to the beach
Looking back up at the church, on the way to the beach
And then you get to the beach!
Cafe on the beach. Helps if you like listening to jazz. A coffee will set you back one euro
The jetty at Faggeto
When the boast comes in...

This is a gem for a quiet get away. We travelled with our 14 year old and although the swimming pool was well utilised it was too quiet for this age group. Other consideration to note is the village is extremely small with only one restaurant in walking distance. Lake is 2 min walk and crystal clear - beautiful and busy in July. Need to stock up in Como before arrival as no local shops. Bellagio and Mennagio a must. Car imperative. Parking is underground, tight and no bigger than mid-range Ford Focus salon recommended. We had estate wagon and found it a pain.

It is a spotless villa, excellent caretaker and stunning views.

Thank you very much for your kind review. It was a pleasure to have you stay. We are sorry that you were greeted by bad weather, we hope that next time you come here the sun will be out to welcome you. Since your stay with us we have installed a new air management system which is working very well and has made a big difference to the humidity.
