HISTORICAL COUNTRY HOUSE WITH GARDEN AND SWIMMING POOL

Merate Chateau / Country House Rental Photos and Description

Chateau / Country House, 3 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

'La Vescogna' is an old italian mansion that dates back to the 17th century and it is an extraordinary example of a country-stately house located on the homonym hillock (400 m) in the superior administrative division of Calco village, in the heart of the green Brianza land, 10 km away from Como lake. The house enjoys a spectacular panoramic view over the valley and the city of Milan, which is only 35km away, a shopping expedition down the famed Via Montenapoleone and a peek at Leonardo da Vinci’s “Last Supper,” plus the Duomo and La Scala are all a must, renowned museums and exhibitions and active nightlife.

The renowned towns of Bellagio, Varenna, Tremezzo and Menaggio are easily reachable from the town of Lecco, located on the east shore of the lake, only 15 km from La Vescogna, either by driving along the lake’s shore or crossing it by ferry (“Navigazione Laghi”).

The advantageous location of the mansion makes it possible to learn more and discover this part of the Lombardy: beside the proximity with Lecco, the house is located close to other interesting attractions: the beautiful and old town of Bergamo Alta (30 km); the city of Monza (20 km), with its famous Autodromo where the Formula 1 Grand Prix takes place every September; the prestigious Golf Club Milano (20 km), with its 27 hollows and a bunch of other Golf Clubs such as Golf Club Lecco (10 km), and Golf Brianza Country Club (15 km) with 18 hollows all easily reachable in 20 minutes.

The Milan Linate airport is only 40 km away whereas the Orio Al Serio airport is only 30 km.

'La Vescogna' is characterized by simple and dour shapes on the front facade that remind of its having been a castle of an Italian noble family (Calchi family) in the XIV century, situated by the Adda river, on the border between the Dukedom of Milan and the Venetian Republic.

On the other side, the house is rather baroque and it faces the south with its typical italian garden, constituted of three different terraces, each with its flight, balcony and marble decorations, not to mention its boxwood being shaped with topiary art and those prestigious trees typical of the XIX century 'romantic garden”.

In the most repaired but best located side, just a few steps away from the amazing pool (25 meters length), there is an ancient stable shed that is now used as a club-house.

The west wing of the mansion available for weekly rent is composed:

On the ground floor there is a lominous glazed veranda hedged by scented jasmines, to which it is possible to have access from the main courtyard, a wide dining room and a cosy living room with a big fireplace in stones beyond the kitchen.

All rooms are located on the first floor facing the green courtyard and they provide a guest toilet with a small living-room

- a luxury suite room with a fresco ceiling and antique furnitures and exclusive bathroom with shower.

- 2 double rooms

- a big bathroom with bathtub

The service-rooms are located in the basement where there is a billiard room as well. In the back side there is big and shaded terrace furnished and decorated so as to be both a relaxing and refreshing place during the hottest hours of the day and a cozy dining corner with BBQ

Villa La Vescogna offers a satellite television and a Wi-Fi network to its guests.

Keywords: Weekly rent for 6 persons with atmosphere in a unic historical garden

GREAT PLACE WITH ITALIAN TRADITION

  • 5 of 5
We (3 couples from Australia & USA) spent a wonderful week last June at the villa Vescogna. The home has all amenities for a comfortable stay, we especially enjoyed the beautiful garden and the generous space. Only 30 min from Lake Como, it was easy to explore the many beauties of this splendid area.

FOUR ADULTS ATTENDING A WEDDING

  • 5 of 5
Four old friends attended a wedding in Lecco and decided to stay at La Vescogna rather than a hotel. It was fantastic! The villa has lots of living space, a wonderful kitchen, a very helpful overseer nearby and a beautiful grand swimming pool. We highly recommend La Vescogna!! Two thumbs up!

FAMILY, ONE 12 YEAR OLD SHILD

  • 5 of 5
Our experience at Villa Vescogna was amazing. Not only is the property visually stunning but the hosts are incredible. Lorenza is sassy and smart and Giorgio is charming and gracious. If you are lucky, you will experience a dinner prepared by the entire family and served either in their elegant dining room or on the terrace surrounded by the beautiful countryside. Their 16 year old son, Fedro (sp?) is also an amazing host and chef!
Our daughter spent 2 entire days in the pool, which is straight out of a movie set complete with ivy covered walls, a gorgeous poolhouse, wooden diving board, and views of the villa. The rooms were warm and inviting and breakfast was lovely.
Don't miss this hidden treasure, we have traveled througout Italy on several occasions and this has been one of our favorite places.

LOVELY LECCO MANSION

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I spent 3 enjoyable nights at this Lecco area mansion. The owners were very helpful and friendly. The breakfast each morning was excellent, the best we had in Italy. We found the property to be incredibly beautiful, even though it was early in the season. The rooms are big and comfy and the bathroom very clean and large. It was located exactly where the description said although we had a little trouble finding the right road. Our hosts were very gracious about guiding us in. Once we figured it out it was easy.
I have already recommended this property to some friends. We did not eat out much in the area as we
were visiting friends in Lecco but we did a fun day in Bergamo Alta and a day on Lake Como where we visited Bellagio and the Villa Carlota.
Overall it was a great experience.
