About the property

Lake Como - house with garden

The house was a typical barn done in stone and wood, recently restored respecting the original forms and materials. It has private garden and woods, peaceful place with a charming view on lake mountains and woods. The house overlook the quite and characteristic village of Breglia, closed to Menaggio. If you want to immerse yourself in Italian culture, to find the Italy of the olden days, this is the place to do it: quiet,comfortable base to explore the area, Breglia is not affected by tourism but at few minutes from the most famous lake places as Bellagio. The village offers beautiful views, green woods for a refreshingly peaceful and restorative stay, good place for keen walkers: from Breglia start numerous hiking for all levels of difficulty. Some routes slide into the woods and reach old lake villages, others rising on mountain above the town, with stunning views of Lake Como, Lake Lugano and the Alps. In the apartment you will find all sorts of tourist info.

About Lucia

I was born and live on Lake Como with my husband, two children, our dog and a sweet cat. Breglia was the land of my grand-parents, we live on the other side of the lake, in Bellagio, but often we enjoy to come back here in Breglia for holidays or just for a short day-beak looking for peace, out from the busy and noisy Bellagio. We stay in Breglia especially in winter months, as during warm seasons we work, for this reason we rent our houses from spring to autumn.

I really love my land and its history: lake Como is rich in art, history and nature! I wish my guests discover as much as possible of the beauties of my land: I prepare in the apartments many information, maps, brochures. If you want any tips, itineraries adapted to your wishes write me and I help you to find them.

Why Lucia chose Plesio

The village is like a nest in the woods of the mountains of the lake, where to enjoy beautiful walks between woods with fantastic views. An oasis of peace just few minutes drive from the busiest and most famous places around the lake. When I do not want to use the car a good bus service brings me to Menaggio, and when I do not want to cook there is the the local restaurant with excellent meals with little expense. On Sundays and public holidays, when the lake villages are terribly busy with tourists from the city, I enjoy the peace here, walking among the ancient chestnut and going for an easy stroll to the white church that overlooks the lake with an extraordinary view. In this small village people are friendly, you can feel the atmosphere of yesteryear Italy.

What makes this apartment unique

Both the apartments are so comfortable!

Ginestra, at the ground floor, has a little garden that we have filled with many varieties of flowers, and grape that ripens in September. It is wonderful in the morning: the sun rise right in front, the stone table in the garden is a perfect set for breakfast!

The big apartment Pervinca, at the first floor, is spacious and well equipped. It has a wonderful big garden behind the house that we decorated with many varieties of flowers for each season, Japanese maple trees, conifers and fruit trees. There is also a children's playhouse, and a barbecue. The highest part of the garden borders with the forest, also owned by us, from there you can enjoy the view of the lake, and among the ancient pines there's a wooden table where it's nice to have lunch.
