At the top of the village of Torno, villa Felce overlooks the lake from almost a height of 600 meters. Originally a small stone ruin built next to a rock quarry, Felce has been expanded and renovated a villa for 8 guests, with modern and functional contemporarily design furniture. The lower floor as a suggestive relaxation room with a sauna/Turkish bath built on the rock. Felce with its unique location allows clean air and a breathtaking view. The partially fenced in garden has two parking spaces at the entrance. From there, in order to reach the villa you need to go up a steep path, therefore this property is not recommended for guests with mobility problems and high heels would become a dangerous weapon. The private garden offers an area for meditation and a furnished lounge area for outdoor relaxing. The drive up to the property is rather steep, so a medium-capacity SUV is recommended. From the villa, Como is reachable in more or less ten minutes either by car or by boat. You can reach the lake on foot which will take you approximately ten minutes; walking downhill through narrow streets, passing houses, until you reach a lovely little square which overlooks the lake, and where you can have an aperitif or have a delicious dinner at the restaurant. Golf lovers can reach Villa d’Este Golf Club in approximately thirty minutes by car. The Lugano and Milan airports are about an hour away from the villa.
