Overview

Brienno Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Luxury lakefront Villa to sleep 9, with amazing views from almost every room!

A luxury lakeside villa, situated in the quaint, historical town of Brienno. The property offers stunning lake-views from most of the rooms and balconies in the house and also from the very spacious terrace from where there is direct access to swim in the lake. At the side of the property (ID 124), you can also enjoy the sight and sound of a small naturally formed waterfall cascading into the lake.

The elegant interior furnishings and design of the property are in a traditional style and laid out over three floors. There are five bedrooms, two with en-suite bathrooms, two living rooms and fully equipped kitchen.

Ferry -Passenger & Car: Lake Como has a fleet of 26 Motorships which link up the main tourist areas. Ferries for transporting motor-vehicles travel between Cadenabbia, Bellagio, Menaggio and Varenna. They can carry over twenty vehicles and there is a discount on the ticket price for extra journeys.

Brienno:

Brienno is a municipality in the Province of Como located in the Italian region of Lombardy. It's a small pretty village which has ancient narrow cobbled streets that wind between the old buildings and is situated approximately 15km from Como,The village lies on the western side of Lake Como and benefits from some lovely lakeside walks.

The houses in the village are very picturesque and many have balconies. Tradition has it that the war memorial of a man throwing stones is to commemorate a battle in Libya in 1910 when a battalion ran out of ammunition and used stones instead.

The town has a number of historic landmarks to visit including the part of the town still enclosed by ancient Roman walls,The Church of SS Nazario e Celso which has Romanesque origins, although the Church was rebuilt in the sixteenth century and The Church of S. Vittore with its Romanesque bell tower and mullioned windows and the nave dating back to the fifth century.

A little further along the main lake road takes you to Argegno, which is a really pretty fishing village. Ferry services are available from here, which access the whole of the lake.

Lombardy - Lake Como Area:

The Italian Lakes are a little slice of paradise. Elegant ribbons of blue water stretch out ahead, folded into the sun-baked foothills, with a spectacular back drop of the snow-capped Alps.

Lake Como offers hidden treasures just waiting for the visitor to discover them: charming corners forgotten by time, lakeside villages where nothing seems to have changed for centuries.

It is steeped in history with an immense collection of churches, architectural masterpieces and works of art covering the centuries. The lake is situated in a basin surrounded by wooded mountains, and offers an extremely varied landscape, with its' shores featuring a succession of pastures, and woods as well as harsh and impressive rock formations.

All this alongside elegant, lakeside villas with sub-tropical gardens, which provide a haven of peace and tranquillity and chic resorts such as Varenna, Bellagio, Menaggio and Como itself.

Warming, in spriing and graced with natural beauty, the lakes are still a place to draw breath and wonder. Lake Como, oriented north-south, ringed by characterful old villages often wedged onto narrow beaches between rugged cliffs and water. Those classic lake images of flower strewn balconies, Baroque gardens and splendid waterside villas can be found here in abundance. Dotted around and between the lakes are some of Italy's finest art cities, such as Milan, Verona & Bergamo.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We enjoyed very much our stay in Villa Allegra. The Villa is very spacious, well equipped, and offers magnificent views. We liked the garden, and had most of our meals outdoors.

Despite the proximity to the main road, it was relatively quite, especially the bedrooms facing the lake.

We highly recommend two day-hikes that we tried: one is from Naggio to Mennagio, along the stream in val Senagra (about 9km downhill). The other is Mt.Generoso (1700m), on the border with Switzerland. You can climb it from the Italian side, and then you can either descend back to the car via a different trail (round trip about 5 hours) or cross the border and take the train from the summit to lago Lugano. Hiking around Mt. Lenno, Mt. Tremezzo and Rifugio Buffalora was also nice.

All in all the Villa was ideal for a group like ours - ages ranging from 16 to 88. We recommend it!



All the Best, Navah & Udi, Isreal

The property is situated just 15 minutes from the beautiful town centre of Como, the lake’s unofficial capital. The very centre of the town was once part of the Roman Empire in AD 172 and is still enclosed by a fortified wall. The historic parts of the town hold many precious architectural jewels, including the 14th century Gothic-Renaissance cathedral that took over 350 years to build, the Broletto and other fascinating medieval buildings. Lakeside promenade walks, perfectly formed piazzas, typical Italian cafe lined walkways, boutiques galore as well as the home of The Alessandro Volta's museum (the inventor of electricity back in 1801).

Shoppers will love Como as it is an important centre for silk manufacturing both in design and print of the fabrics. Other local specialities are exclusive Italian fashion lines, leather goods, artwork, and other fine crafts.

Golf:

There are Golf clubs around Lake Como: The Cadenabbia & Menaggio Golf Club celebrating 100 years this year and is Italy's oldest golf course. Established in 1907 with 18 holes Par 70, it is located above Menaggio near Croce, in Grandola ed Uniti, approx. 20 min. by car. Tel: +39 344 321 03. Green Fees: Weekdays EU 55, Weekends and Holidays EU 70 Euros; Golf Cart Rental EU 36.

Restaurant Golf at the club serves fantastic food and is well recommended.. Guests are always welcome, please call beforehand to check course rules. Golf Club Menaggio: (Menaggio Como).

Ski:

This beautiful lake region of Italy is not the best for skiing as you may imagine, despite its scenery, crisp air and near perfect visibilty and mountains capped in winter snow. It does however have Skiing opportunities at local resorts for a day out.

There is a small ski area on Mt. Lema, not more than 10 km from Lugano, but you have to be lucky to have enough snow for skiing. In Ticino, the local Swiss Canton, the best places to ski are probably either San Bernardino (south of the pass of the same name) or Airolo (south of Gotthard pass). Both are reachable in about 1 hour by car across the Swiss border.

There are direct trains to Airolo as well from Lugano and hence from Italian Stations. To S. Bernardino there is only a bus connection. For more snow try Andermatt (on the north side of Gotthard pass) which has normally good snow conditions and a good choice of runs.

The closest major ski resort is Madesimo toward the Splugen Pass, which is approx. 1 hr 20 min. by car
