'LA TORRE'

Menaggio Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Medieval tower in a quaint old village surrounded by forests

Located in the heart of Breglia, in a quiet medieval village perched like a nest in the woods surrounding the lake of Como, the medieval tower is the oldest part, silent and pedestrian-only, between stone buildings and characteristic streets with cobblestone.

Perfect base to discover the Italian lakes.

'Highly recommended for lovers of nature, ancient buildings and beautiful landscapes' (from a guest's reviews).

PARKING: the historic center of Breglia is pedestrian only, a very large and free public parking is 80m from the house. At 100m from the tower public garden for children, bus stop, bar -restaurant.

Wi-Fi by the local bar -restaurant, at 100 metres from the tower.

This was the land of my grand-parents, we live on the other side of the lake but often we enjoy to come back here in Breglia ( small village in the municipality of Plesio) for holidays or just for a short day-beak looking for peace, out from the busy and noisy Bellagio. We stay in our tower especially in winter months, as during warm season we work, for this reason we rent it from spring to autumn :)

The village is like a nest in the woods of the mountains of the lake, here I enjoy beautiful walks between woods with fantastic views like the one pictured. Here is an oasis of peace just few minutes drive from the busiest and most famous places around the lake: this is my little haven, where I find rest and fresh after a hard week's work between the chaos and the sounds of traffic. 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 I go to the local restaurant where they serve 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. The tower is in the oldest part of the village, its walls have a thousand years, the stones of its facade reveal ancient stone windows and massive blocks and next there was a convent of monks builted in the 15th century. Walking through the village you will discover picturesque corners of old, like the old stone fountains, where the water is still good to drink.

Behind the tower we got a terrace above a stone building, on disposal for the apartment 'Torre'; for its flooring we used the stones that covered the old roof of the tower. In the bedroom of the apartment 'Torre' we kept the original wooden beams of the 16th century.

In the apartment 'Portico' is visible a big beam done with a chestnut tree, and a narrow passage which communicated with the surrounding buildings, now used for storage.

In both apartments there is a lovely fireplace, perfect in the autumn evenings.

QUIET, COMFORTABLE, PEACEFUL AND BEAUTIFUL!

  • 5 of 5
La Torre is charming apartment in a very quiet medieval village with lovely views of Lake Como and the surrounding mountains within seconds from the front door. The apartment was very clean and well equipped, with a wonderful log fire for those cooler October evenings (although the days were warm and sunny). Lucia was extremely helpful and friendly with lots of suggestions as to how to make the most of our stay. A wonderful, picturesque and romantic base from which to celebrate our Silver Wedding Anniversary! Thank you Lucia for looking after us so well! We will be back soon!!!"

EXCELLENT

  • 5 of 5
The apartment was clean and equipped with all the necessary tools for arranging a holiday stay. It was also very quiet. The road from Menaggio to Breglia is sometimes narrow and winding but after short period of time we got used to drive up and downhill. Location of town is however very convenient for all who wish to a make day trips to different locations like the town along the lake Como, St. Moritz, Lugano, Locarno, Bergamo and many others. There are also a number of opportunities for trekking in the area with some spectacular views on your way overlooking the lake Como. Lucia (the owner) was very friendly and helpful. She provided us with all the information on what we could/should see and how to arrange our stay in the best way. What was very important for us was that we could come with our dog. All this made that we spent a great holidays in La Torre.

EINE WUNDERSCHÖNE WOCHE...

  • 5 of 5
Vielen Dank für die wunderschöne Woche in der Ferienwohnung La Torre. Wer Ruhe, Entspannung sucht aber es auch nicht so weit zu den Sehenswürdigkeiten des See`s haben will ist hier genau richtig. Auch für einen Ausflug in die Schweiz ist es nicht weit.
Die Wohnung ist sehr sauber und hat alles was man braucht. Auf der Terrasse sitzt es sich sehr schön.
Das Auto stellt man auf einen Parkplatz ca. 100 m von der Fewo ab. Dann gehts durch kleine Gassen zur Wohnung, wirklich schön und wie man sich ein italienisches Dorf vorstellt. So, vielen Dank auch noch an die nette Vermieterin, die uns viele Tipps gab, welche wir auch fast alle umgesetzt haben. Die Zeit war leider viel zu kurz. Ach so, wer baden will, ist gut in Dongo aufgehoben. Dort gibt es eine schöne große Badewiese. Man muss ein kleines Stück durch den Ort fahren, auf der rechten Seite ist eine kleine Straße, die zum Campingplatz ( mit Toiletten, Pizzeria ) führt. Parkplätze sind genug vorhanden.

GEMÜTLICHE WOHNUNG IN RUHIGER LAGE

  • 5 of 5
Die schöne zweigeschossige Wohnung eignet sich wunderbar für all diejenigen, die dem Trubel direkt am Comersee entkommen möchten und in echt italienischer Atmosphäre Erholung suchen. Sonnige Terrasse, idyllischer Ort, guter Ausgangspunkt für Spaziergänge und Wanderungen, nettes Restaurant nur wenige hundert Meter entfernt und vor allem eine sehr hilfsbereite Vermieterin. Absolut empfehlenswert! Wir haben uns wohl gefühlt.

ERHOLSAME FERIEN IM MITTELALTERLICHEN DORF

  • 5 of 5
Über die Bergstrasse von Menaggio erreicht man am Ende einer kurvenreichen Strecke das liebliche Bergdorf Breglia. Die Straße endet an der Kirche auf einem großen Parkplatz, denn ab hier ist der Ort autofrei. Dort erwartete uns Lucia, unsere gastfreundliche und hilfsbereite Vermieterin, um uns zu begrüßen und zu unserer Ferienwohnung zu führen. Einige Meter vom Parkplatz entfernt, inmitten der mittelalterlichen Gassen liegt La Torre (Der Turm) mit seinen imposanten Steinmauern. Zur Wohnung gehört auch eine Sonnenterasse mit Liegestühlen und Sitzgelegenheit.
Trotz der Lage inmitten von Häusern ist es sehr ruhig. Diese zweigeschossige Wohnung hat eine moderne Dusche und Bad, ist modern und mit allem Notwendigen ausgestattet. Im zweiten Geschoss ist die Holzdecke teilweise etwas niedrig und daher ist dieser Raum besser als Kinderzimmer geeignet. Die Ausstattung ist sehr geschmackvoll und ansprechend. Überhaupt eignet sich die Ferienwohnung gerade für Familien mit Kindern, die gerne etwas Ruhe suchen. Der Ort ist sehr ursprünglich (man kann im Brunnen im Wald sein Wasser direkt an der Quelle holen) und ein herrlicher Ausgangspunkt für Wanderungen, die einen wunderbaren Ausblick über den Comer See und teilweise über den Luganer See erlauben.
Die nächste Einkaufsmöglichkeit befindet sich in 10 min mit dem Auto in Plesio. Badestrände sind nahe Menaggio oder bei Cadenabbia in ca. 20-25 min zu erreichen. Lucia spricht sehr gut englisch und konnte uns immer gute Empfehlungen für Wanderungen und Ausflüge geben. Wir haben uns bei Ihr sehr wohl gefühlt.

FANTASTISCHE TAGE OBERHALB DES COMER SEES

  • 5 of 5
Nach einer herrlichen Woche in Breglia, ca. 5 km, oberhalb des Comer Sees, kehren wir gut erholt nach Hause zurück.
Besonders möchten wir dabei unsere sehr freundliche und sehr verbindliche Vermieterin Lucia, die auch Fremdenführerin ist, hervorheben, die uns bereits am ersten Tag wertvolle Tipps für die Gestaltung unserer Woche am Lago di Como mitgab.
Das Appartment befindet sich Mitten im sehr schönen, mittelalterlichen Breglia. Zum Appartment gehört eine Terasse mit Morgensonne, auf der es sich sehr gut frühstücken lässt.
Wir können dieses Ziel sehr und uneingeschränkt empfehlen.
