There is a paved area outside the house with seating and a grass lawn on two levels. The lower level has a beautiful antique stone table, which easily seats 8 people. There is a traditional stone BBQ and a children's climbing frame with swing, slide and playhouse. The lake is just 5 minutes walk away and is accessed via a path on private land. The path is rather steep and difficult in some places so do take care. Parking and access to this wonderful villa at Lake Como. There is plenty of room at the house for parking, but as the photo of the drive illustrates, it is steep and rough, so access all the way to the house is by 4 x 4 vehicle only. There is however parking at the top of the drive and it's just a 2 minute walk down to the house. Upon arrival and departure we can arrange for transport of your luggage between your car and the house at no extra cost. More
