Residence Celeste Due is a studio apartment for up to three guests. It is 30
square meters (320 square feet), and it has a terrace of 10
square meters (110 square feet) which offers a beautiful view of the lake and of
the shared swimming pool and garden.

The apartment has a double divan bed in the living area, a fold-out single
bed, kitchenette and a bathroom.

The place

Residence Celeste was built at the end of the eighteenth century by members
of the noble family Brentano-Mezzegra.  The reason for building the mansion
is singular, to say the least.  Legend has it that the sons of the Count
Brentano-Mezzegra, upset with their father during a family feud, erected a new
building just in front of the family palace, to block the view of the lake that
the Count so much enjoyed. We don't know how much is history and how much is
tale, but something is for sure: the new residence enjoys a spectacular view of
the lake, while the imposing building right at its back has been "obscured", so
to speak.

Throughout the following centuries the building has been used as a monastery
and then as a farmhouse.  It was an old country residence still in 2001,
when it has been restored and divided into nine holiday apartments.

The residence is located in the quiet village of Mezzegra, approximately 500
meters (550 yards) from the town center, in an uphill position
that offers a wide and charming view of the lake, of the town of Bellagio on the
opposite shore, and of the surrounding mountains.  Mezzegra is a tiny lakeside village, which has a
place in history because it's here that, on April 28th 1945, Benito Mussolini
was executed, or assassinated, depending on who tells the story.

Residence Celeste can be reached by car, or, if you don't mind a bit of
uphill/downhill walking, you will be able to stay at this place and move around
by bus and ferry.  The bus stop is at approximately 500 meters (550 yards)
from the villa, and the owners provide a shuttle service to and from the bus
stop for a small fee, if requested.  If you have a car, you will be able to
park it on the premises, inside a fenced area.

The nine apartments at Residence Celeste are arranged on four floors, and
they all share a very nice heated swimming pool of 12 x 5.50 meters (40 x 
18 feet), 1.40 meters (4.6 feet) deep, a solarium equipped with
umbrellas and sun beds, and a garden with tables and chairs.  The swimming
pool is open from June 1st until September 15th, from 9 am to 7 pm.  The
residence is also equipped with a sauna (pay-per-use).

At the residence you will also find a laundry room, with a washing machine, a
dryer, iron and ironing board.  The washing machine and the dryer are
token-operated, and tokens can be bought on the premises.

A kids' playground is at approximately 100 meters (110 yards) from the
residence, and nearby you will also find a tennis court.  At 500 meters
(550 yards) there is the closest restaurant, a cafe and grocery stores. 
More restaurants, cafes and stores are in the nearby village of Lenno,
approximately 1.5 km (1 mile) from Residence Celeste.

The apartment

Residence Celeste Due is located on the ground floor of the building, and you
will reach its terrace from the garden area climbing six steps.

The terrace offers a lovely view of the garden and pool area, and of the lake
with the surrounding mountains as well.  The terrace of Residence Celeste
Due is separated from the terrace of Residence Celeste Tre by a step, on which
flowers pots have been lined up.  The two apartments, Due and Tre, are next
to each other but have separate pathways leading to their terraces.  The
two terraces are side-by-side and there is no physical barrier between the two. 
On the terrace you will find a table with chairs as well as an umbrella.

From the terrace you will enter into a large room with a characteristic
vaulted ceiling.  In this room you will find a comfortable sofa that opens
into a regular double bed, a kitchenette, a table with chairs and a fold-out
bed. The kitchenette  is equipped with a four-burner cooker, a microwave
oven, a small refrigerator with freezer and a dishwasher. The apartment has a
satellite television and a safe box.  The room has two glass doors that
take you back to the terrace, and from which you will enjoy a view of the lake. 
A door takes you to a small access area and hence to the bathroom, which is
equipped with a shower.

Nearby tourist attractions

The village of Mezzegra lies on the western shore of Lake Como, 30 km (20

Wars" and "A Month by the Lake" where shot.
