The room contains a magnificent hand-painted Palladium majolica pellet stove to make guests' winter stays cosy and romantic, and opens onto a terrace furnished with a table for lunches with a view of the lake towards Villa Melzi in Bellagio.The interior decor features a beautifully-finished niche where reflected light is amplified by the glass, floral shapes discovered in the stone by the creative Eugenio - a motif that symbolically ties the apartment with the surrounding area and its luxuriant public parks and private gardens that are a mass of blooms from the Spring onwards - and the arch created by the skilled hands of master craftsman, Livio. The soft line and colour of the wooden beam set into the ceiling is the work of Raffaele and the curved stone used for the floors was artistically carved by Guido.Glicine House has two bedrooms leading off the entrance hall where the walls are decorated with geometric patterns in an antique red that picks up the colour of the red larch parquet floor.The double bedroom, overlooking the garden and with a side view of the lake, has air conditioning as well as heating for the winter months. The wisteria-blue colour makes for calm, relaxing atmosphere.The second bedroom, with three single beds, also has air conditioning (and heating), as well as a 'fifties terracotta working woodstove, which blends well with the pink-painted walls. The room overlooks a charmingly-lit courtyard which serves as a private carpark for guests. In both bedrooms, the headboards and wardrobes feature decorative carving by master carpenters from Sutrio, custodians of a traditional expertise known throughout Val Badia, Val Gardena and the nearby Austrian Tyrol and Carinzia. There is also a fine cradle from the Engadin decorated with colourful flowers in typical Austrian Tyrolean style. Glicine House welcomes its guests with a variety of warm, vibrant colours emphasized by the mysterious, intriguing reflected light of Marrakesh, typical of the Arab world, a delight for the eyes of those seeking quiet and relaxation, or providing an ideal atmosphere for planning work commitments.In the completely renovated, disabled-accessible bathroom with shower, sober but elegant stone and wood details recall the simplicity of country life in the high mountain pastures, the walls being the rust colour of iron or earth. Linear shapes blend with the colourful floral wall decorations and emphasize the beauty of the different shades of colour that make for a warm welcome.A detailed description of the area where Glicine House and Azalea House are located can be found in the ”Lake Como and Villa del Balbianello” a travel guide written by Belgian author, Mark Dermul.“A guide to Lake Como (Italy) to discover the film locations for the lake retreat on Naboo in Star Wars Episode II – Attack of the Clones.Without forgetting that John Kerry, Senator from Massachusetts already a candidate for the White House in 2004 for the Democrats and the new Secretary of State in the administration of Barack Obama instead of Hillary Clintoon stayed in Griante two years ago.He has a fabulous residence which extends in a large park, Villa Maresi , close to the apartments at Griante . Villa Maresi more properly belongs to his wife, Teresa Heinz, widow of the king of ketchup that already in the past had sold Villa Oleandra George Clooney.More
