FAMILY HISTORY / LOCAL AREA

Our family are originally from Bergamo and my Father moved to England in the 60's but most of our family remain in this beautiful area of Lombardy.

We love the Lombardy region for its fantastic food and wines and easy access to the best Northern Italy has to offer - The Lakes, Milan, Venice, Verona, Monza to name but a few.

The region has much to offer from a natural, cultural, arts and architectural perspective.

The pleasures of Lombardy are multi-faceted.

These range from those offered by a modern, cosmopolitan city to the relaxed charms of the nature’s beauty. There is the shopping for clothing and accessories in the fashionable boutiques in Milan, some of the best in Europe and in the world, the excellent restaurants and nightlife fueled by the wealth and style-conscious residents of Milan, the excellent art in Pinocateca di Brera in the city and the most re-produced painting in the world, Da Vinci’s “Last Supper”, commute and visit to one of the several other historic cities in the region such as Bergamo, Cremona, and Mantua.

A visit to one of the lake resorts is a must as is Verona, Venice, Monza and Citta Alta.

Hi Mark



Just to let you know we had a fantastic holiday! Your villa was lovely and suited the six of us perfectly. The immediate surrounds were beautiful and we had a few great visits to the Biali bar and also La Fonte in particular.



Brilliant location - we did Milan and Venice and as much as we could in between including Como, Lecco, Bergamo, Iseo - you name it we drove to it!

The property was fantastic.

  • 5 of 5

The property was clean and well presented. It's situation is perfect. Nice and near the lake for lots of lovely walks and fishing, but far enough away to have peace, quiet and privacy. A great central location to visit lots of other tourist attractions from but be also to get away from it all if you want as well. Good restaurants on the doorstep and fantastic ice cream in Bergamo! Thoroughly enjoyed our stay and returning for more!

Stunning!

  • 5 of 5

We had a truly superb week with glorious weather living the Italian way in this brilliant villa. Breakfast was bought fresh from Il Forno bakery just a short walk away and enjoyed al fresco on the patio at our quiet and secluded villa in a secure and restful gated community. In the evenings a short walk down to the lakeside also brought the delights of la Fonte restaurant where the staff could not have been more helpful and friendly, especially to my Coeliac wife who also has a dairy allergy to cope with. The villa itself offers everything you could wish for, is spacious, clean and well equipped. It is comfortable and even with temperatures never dipping below 30 degrees Centigrade, our nights sleep went uninterrupted and were restful. The beauty of the area cannot be conveyed in words, and we felt truly blessed to have been able to enjoy such wonder every day that we were there. Endine benefits from its relatively small size compared to the likes of Lakes Como and Garda, as it is somewhat undiscovered by the hordes of tourists that swarm to these lakes, and as a result has a sense of still being Italian. All in all we have had a truly memorable holiday and would love to come again some day.

Absolutely fantastic first family holuday

  • 5 of 5

Loved every second and aspect of the whole week.

Villa is wonderful, the immediate area is incredible, the lake, the hills the town.

Local food is perfect, especially the local restaurant.

Northern Italy is wonderful too, Brescia, Milan, Bergamo are all great to see.

Would return in a heartbeat, my wife and kids first time abroad and they have well and truly caught the bug, will see more of the world first, but one day we will return to Marks Villa and relive a special week for us.

Great property in lovely central location

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic time at Villa Lombardy. Perfectly sufficient for 6 adults with lovely kitchen/diner and pleasant garden. The accommodation was clean and tidy and well equipped. We packed in visits to Milan and Venice, both well worth the drive, plus easy access to most of the lakes. Lovely village with great amenities. Particularly enjoyed the Biali Bar and La Fonte - both well worth a visit or 5! Lake Endine is beautiful and we just enjoyed the whole thing!! Would definitely consider revisiting!
