Apartment Rosa

Apartment Rosa is located in a small private dwelling in the village of Novate Mezzola, which is just a few minutes walk from Lago di Mezzola.
 
The apartment has 3 bedrooms, two are in the main apartment and the third is accessible by its own private access which is perfect for guests travelling in a group or with older children who want their own space.  The third bedroom also has an ensuite shower room. 
 
A choice of two patios both ideally positioned so you can have breakfast on one in the morning as the sun rises, and enjoy your evening meal alfresco later on.
 
The views from the apartment are stunning, with mountainous backdrops which are absolutely beautiful all year round.  In the spring time you'll see the snow capped mountains and yet have warm sunny days.  In the winter months the area gets plenty of snow, offering the perfect winter location either for a skiing break or a Christmas holiday.  But don't worry, the apartment has central heating throughout.

The village is far from commercialised but has all the amenities in walking distance that you would expect and more - supermarket, pharmacy, newsagent, bank, post office, florist, bars, trattorias (restaurant), geletaria (ice cream place) and childrens park.  Eating out in the village is extremely reasonable.  A family of 4 can eat out for about 25 euros, and thats including wine and soft drinks.
 
There is also a lovely pizzeria a short stroll away where you can enjoy the views of the lake.  A favourite haunt of our many guests.
 
Novate Mezzola has a train station which is close to the apartment so you can either walk or drive to it.  There is ample free parking.  Travel costs are extremely reasonable and its a superb way to explore the area.  Travel by train to Colico, which is on Lake Como. From here you can go by boat to Mennagio, Bellagio, Varenna and other Lake Como hotspots. 
 
From Novate Mezzola station you can also reach Milan and Bergamo.  This offers an alternative day out and is well worth it!
 
The station provides you with the opportunity to explore many of the villages and towns nearby, including Chiavenna.  Its an ideal way to get around, and a relaxing way to take in the scenery. 
 
All the tourist attractions are close by, and yet Novate Mezzola is pretty untouched, with much to do, so you have the best of both worlds. 
 
If you love outdoor pursuits, then you will find ample walks and trails to explore, as well as many water sports and other activities.  However, if relaxing is more your thing then the apartment will offer you the 'chill out' you desire.  It really is the kind of place that you can do as you please.
