Casa del Pescatore
Santa Maria Rezzonico, Lake Como
A lakeside villa with terraces on the waterfront
- Sleeps 6
- 3 bedrooms
Formerly the house of a fisherman who liked to live close to his livelihood, this three-storey house rising from the water's edge has been charmingly restored to provide a family or friends a unique spot for a lakeside holiday. While porter service is available to help schlep your luggage, guests make their own way past San Siro's castle and down the cobbled steps to arrive at the 'front door', which is actually at the side and on the first floor. The light streaming through the windows and the watery horizon ensures you have arrived at exactly the place you need to be....
Across from the entrance a partially covered terrace with BBQ is furnished for outdoor meals, while inside the house conveniently on this level is an open-plan kitchen/dining room with access to a large panoramic terrace. Leaving no doubt about the house's origins, a painted wooden boat hangs upside-down from the kitchen ceiling. Up one level are the living room, a bathroom with Jacuzzi and separate shower, and a double bedroom with an ensuite shower room. On the top floor are a second double bedroom with ensuite shower room and a lofted area with two additional twin beds mainly suitable for children. Additional accommodation is available in an independent terraced ground floor apartment that includes a double bedroom, kitchenette, and bathroom.
