Residence Rainbow Holiday Apartments is a modern holiday home located in the town of Colico on Lake Como, at the feet of the Lombard Pre-Alps where Val Chiavenna meets Valtellina on the road to Switzerland. The three words “Rainbow Holiday Apartments” sum up the concept perfectly – a home, a holiday and a view. And indeed, the quality, services, view and chosen materials are the distinctive characteristics of this facility, which offers a spa and a private gym, a garden and a swimming pool where guests can swim, relax and enjoy the spectacle of nature. It is the ideal place to spend a relaxing outdoor holiday just a short walk from Lake Como. And to enable guests to fully enjoy the view and the warm weather, the top floor of the holiday centre has been fitted out as a wellness rooftop with a large jacuzzi, sauna and solarium. The garden features a swimming pool with a relaxation area sheltered by a wall with natural stone-effect cladding to protect guests’ privacy. There is also a shared space with lounge chairs, tables and a barbecue, a relaxing outdoor area for fun and socialisation. But the real star of the project is the tile collection chosen for the interior and exterior floors and pavings: Keope In&Out Percorsi Smart – Pietra di Bagnolo tiles in 60×60 cm and 30×60 cm textured sizes and in a K2 version with a thickness of 2 cm. Thanks to their faithful reproduction of authentic stone, these tiles blend in perfectly with the natural surroundings. They have been chosen for all the floors in the facility: not just the bedrooms (accommodations include two- and three-room apartments and extra-large chalets), corridors, bathrooms, terrace and balconies, but above all for the horizontal surfaces of the external areas, namely the wellness rooftop and the swimming pool. Developed from extensive research and innovation, In&Out Percorsi Smart combines exceptional aesthetics with high technical performance, guaranteeing reliability, safety, toughness and durability – characteristics that are especially important in the field of hospitality design. The chosen materials contribute to all-round quality and help Rainbow Holiday Apartments blend perfectly into the surrounding landscape, making it the perfect venue for an exciting, relaxing and fun holiday close to Lake Como.
