Deluxe Apartment Overlooking Lake Como
Our one-bedroom apartment La Torre, with its look-out tower views, is a powerful reminder of Lake Como’s rich past. Constantly under siege, the lake was embattled throughout the Middle Ages for its role as a key trade route. Watchtowers like this one dotted the shore to give villagers fair warning of a hostile attack. Today, the views from this coveted corner apartment on the second floor are rather more peaceful – gaze across the tree-filled park to the harbor and the lake, with the snow-capped mountains rising in the distance. A spacious and inviting apartment covering almost 600 square feet (55 square meters), La Torre has an open-plan living, dining and kitchen area furnished in sleek contemporary Italian style, while the soaring ceilings and luxurious Italian linens add old-world charm. The double bedroom comfortably sleeps two people and includes a bright and spacious bathroom with a multi-jet shower and washer/dryer.
Best of Both Worlds
High-tech amenities from the Nespresso machine to high-speed Internet and a flat-screen satellite TV compliment sophisticated appointments like the custom light fixtures and locally commissioned artwork. Still and sparkling water are complimentary throughout your stay and, on request, we can stock the fridge with some family staples and Italian goodies before you arrive. Of course, apartment guests are also very welcome in the Palazzo’s beautiful public spaces: the bar with our daily aperitivo, the Sala Giunone with its renaissance-era frescoes and lavish breakfast spread, and the historic stone terrace with its antique well and stunning lake views. Ask about our new range of light bites for lunch and dinner or special tasting events featuring the best of Lombardy’s artisanal food and wine under the vaulted stone ceilings of La Cantina.
Ideally Located to Explore Lake Como
Palazzo del Vice Re is ideally located to explore the region’s cultural highlights, natural beauty and athletic adventures, but also the ideal lakeside retreat for the sweet idleness the Italians call “dolce far’ niente”. Bask on our private lakefront sun terrace, wade in our private pebble beach or take the kayaks out for a spin. Beloved Bellagio is within easy reach with its artisanal shops, fashion-forward boutiques and dining options from pizzerias and gelaterias to posh locales and traditional wine bars. And nearby trails are ideal for novices and veteran hikers alike complete with panoramic views, alpine surroundings and traditional mountain fare at a cozy rifugio. Horticulturists and history buffs won’t want to miss Lake Como’s most lavish villas – all easily accessible by boat or car – from Villa del Balbianello of Star Wars fame to the vast botanic gardens of Villa Carlotta.
