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.

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!!!"

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.
