Residence Celeste Sette is a 50-square-meter (540-square-feet) apartment
which sleeps five. It has balcony and windows which offer a beautiful view of the lake and of
the shared swimming pool and garden.

The apartment has a bedroom with a double bed, a living room with a double divan bed
and kitchenette and a bathroom. A fold-out single bed can be placed either in
the living room or in the living room.

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 Sette is located on the second floor of the building. 
You can reach the entrance door entering the building from the back, which is at
the street level, and climbing a stairway made up of 28 steps.  The
swimming pool and the garden are 35 steps from the street level.

The entrance door takes you directly into the spacious living room, from
where you will be able to enter the bedroom and the bathroom.  In the
living room you will find
a divan bed to sleep two, a table with chairs and a satellite television, as
well as a kitchenette.  The kitchenette is equipped with with a four-burner
cooker, a microwave oven, a small refrigerator with freezer and a dishwasher. 
The living room has balconies from which you will be
able to enjoy a wide and open view of the swimming pool, of the garden and of
the lake and mountains.

The bedroom has a double bed.  A fold-out bed can be placed either in
the bedroom or in the living room, according to your preference. 

The bathroom, which can be entered from the corridor as well, is equipped
with a shower.  The apartment is equipped with a safe box.
