About the property

Gorgeous recently restored home, Italian class and taste, among lush vegetation

Casa del Vicolo is the ideal location for a vacation between nature, comfort and quiet, in recently restored house dated 1700, finely furnished and distinctive, overlooking a large garden (6000mq) with amazing lake view (250 m distance).

The home expands upon 3 levels:

at the ground floor fully equipped roomy kitchen, dining room with stone vaulted ceiling directly facing the garden fitted for solarium and lunch.

At the first floor bright living room that easily can turn into a 2 persons bedroom if necessary (2 single beds or 1 double bed) and bathroom with shower.

At the second floor double bedroom with balcony having the sight over the lake and the village and bathroom with shower.

The huge garden with view over the lake allows for charming moments to play or relax as well as nice walks among the olive trees cultivation.

Erholung und Entspannung ist garantiert

  • 5 of 5

Schon der herzliche Empfang von Danielle und das absolut saubere und stilvoll hergerichtete Appartment liesen einen angenehmen Aufenthalt vermuten. Der Garten und die Terrasse waren der Hammer. Alles haben wir wie beschrieben angetroffen. Es wurde nur verschwiegen wie freundlich und herzlich die ganze Familie um unseren Urlaub bestrebt war. Ruhe, Seesicht und einen stilvoll gepflegten Garten runden neben den Küchen und Badezimmer Einrichrungen alles komplett ab. Wir sind sicherlich im nächsten Jahr wieder Gäste im Haus von Mario und Danille sowie von Giorgio und Adige sowie den beiden kleinen Haustigern. 100 % Empfehlung und eigentlich sind es sechs Sterne.

Grüße, Martin und Doris

Bella Casa, liebevoll restauriert

  • 4 of 5

Geschichtsträchtiges wunderbar renoviertes Haus mit Seeblick, supernette und unkomplizierte Gastgeber, Ruhe innerhalb eines riesigen Gartens mit Olivenbäumen und Beerensträuchern.

Empfang mit liebevollen Details, die sonst eher in gehobenen Hotels als in einer Ferienwohnung zu finden sind.

Ein Sternenabzug für die vielen Treppen, die zu bewältigen sind und für ältere Menschen bzw. für jüngere mit kleinen Kindern weniger geeignet sind.

Wir haben uns sehr, sehr wohl gefühlt.

Wonderful views, great location, excellent hosts

  • 5 of 5

An amazing property, well equipped and very tastefully decorated. We had a fantastic week here. The weather was amazing and we enjoyed sunning ourselves in the beautiful gardens. Our hosts, Mario, Danielle, Alice and Georgie were kind and attentive. The setting enjoys wonderful views of Como and is very well situated for walks along the Greenway do Lago as well as for taking boat trips to Bellagio and Varenna. We very much hope to return to Lago Di Como and to Casa Del Vicolo.

CasaDelVicolo: le confort dans un écrin de verdure

  • 5 of 5

Quel charmant gîte et quel charmant accueil!

Dans un cadre d'exception, Danielle et Mario, ainsi que leurs enfants vous accueillent dans ce gîte historique ( il a une histoire très particulière),tout refait à neuf, très bien aménagé, sur 3 niveaux. A noter qu'un escalier en colimaçon relie les étages, ce qui, comme mentionné, peut constituer une gêne pour les personnes à mobilié réduite, ou les enfants en bas âge.

Le descriptif du gîte de l'annonce correspond tout à fait à la réalité.

J'ajouterai qu'il y a 2 accès: un accès privé par la rue et un accès par le jardin en contrebas duquel on peut se garer facilement.

La maison des priopriétaires est mitoyenne mais ce n'est absolument pas dérangeant, et une partie du jardin (immense) est partagé en commun avec les chambres d'hotes de la Casa Del Portico. La plus belle vue est surtout celle que l'on a du jardin, plûtot que celle du balcon de la grande chambre. Le calme est absolu, et la fraicheur du rez de chaussée une bénédiction lorsqu'il fait très chaud.

La situation sur le lac, que nous avons écumé de long en large, est idéale, un peu en retrait pour ne pas être trop près de la route principale (c'est le défaut de certains gîtes ou hotels qui se targuent d'être les pieds dans l'eau!) mais à 15-20mn à pied des embarcadères de Lenno ou de Tremezzo par la "greenway"pour aller flâner à Bellagio, Varenne ou visiter Côme.

Promenade buccolique garantie!

Les sentiers de rando ne sont pas en reste, au départ de Mennagio (pour le parc du Val Sanagra) ou d'Argegno (pour la vallée d'Intelvi). A quelques minutes en voiture ou par le bus.

La propriétaire sur place est francophone et saura avec sa fille, également bilingue, vous prodiguer les meilleures conseils pour choisir le restaurant le plus adapté, les meilleurs coins de baignade, le meilleur caviste, etc

En bref, une adresse de très, très grande qualité . Nous y retournerons certainement!

Fantastic property with lovely hosts

  • 5 of 5

Thank you to Danielle and Mario for making us so welcome in their wonderful villa. It is tastefully decorated and furnished and situated in a lovely village that is perfectly positioned for getting around the lake. The grounds are carefully maintained and lovely and the villa has everything for a comfortable stay. We would definitely recommend this property to anyone wishing to have a relaxing stay and a real home from home.

Beautifully restored property/wonderful location

  • 4 of 5

Danielle and Marius were very friendly, helpful and accommodating hosts. The house (and newly fitted out smaller apartment and B&B rooms in the adjacent house) are tastefully restored and furnished and the view of Lake Como from the terrace was wonderful. The location in Mezzegra provided us with easy access to the central lake area and its attractions, spectacular villas and picturesque villages - either by foot via the Greenway footpath which passes close to the house or by car and boat from nearby Lenno or Tremezzo. We thoroughly enjoyed our week in this lovely property.
