Merate Apartment Rental Photos and Description
Self-Catering Rental from 1 to 3 bedrooms, family friendly. 5 languages spoken.
Come and enjoy the long warm evenings under the pergola running along our 19th century country house and taste the wine from our characteristic cellar. You can relax in the long garden which slopes down to an ancient Franciscan monastery still in use. You may have your meals either inside the house or outside in the garden. The accommodation to rent consists of one flat on the ground floor and two other bedrooms each with its own bathroom on the first and second floors. These can be rented together or just in part. The owners, one of whom is English, also live in the house and are happy to advise and help their guests in any way.
What to do: We are placed in a convenient position as we are near many cities of artistic interest (Milan, Como, Monza and the beautiful medieval walled city, Bergamo). For those who enjoy hiking there are many good walks (On Montevecchia, at Sartirana, along the River Adda and in the Alps). For those who enjoy sight-seeing it is possible to visit the attractive lakeside villages. If you would like to know a very romantic story (The Betrothed by Alessandro Manzoni), which describes our area, we will explain it to you.
We will be very pleased to give you any tourist information you require and take you on our guided tour.
The accomodation consists of a ground floor flat (70 square metres large) in which there is a double bedroom, a bathroom with shower and window, a fully equipped kitchen and a living room with french windows opening onto the garden. In the kitchen there is a microwave, an oven, a fridge, a gas cooker and cupboards containing saucepans, plates and cutlery. The table in the living room is suitable for 6 maximum 8 people to eat. In this room there is a television.
On the first floor we have a double bedroom with a private bathroom with a window and shower.
On the second floor there is another very large double bedroom, again with shower and window. From the window in this room one can see Milan Cathedral in the distance on clear days. These two bedrooms of the first and second floors can be reached by an internal staircase running us the center of the house.
It is possible to rent either the ground floor flat on its own or with one or both of the other bedrooms.
In the garden there is an inclosed car park. For the children we have a children's house and a sand pit. The garden is fenced in and so it is safe for children.

Hello, we are Andrea and Felicity!! We enjoy meeting people from other countries and like showing them the beautiful places around us. We have had visitors from many parts of the world and as we speak five languages we have been able to spend much pleasant time in their company. The languages we speak are: Italian, English, German, French and Chinese.
Our guests often return as they have become our friends.
Andrea enjoys organizing events in the town and has been an ambulance volunteer for almost 30 years. Felicity likes singing in the choir and playing the piano. They both like walking in the mountains and visiting the historical sites nearby.
We bought this house above all because of its beautiful position. It is on a hill overlooking a Franciscan monastery and from the top windows we have a wonderful view of the plain . We can even see the Milan cathedral on good days. The house has a strong personality as it is 200 years old.
Our home is unique in that permits privacy as the bedrooms are on three different floors, but on the other hand it provides comunal spaces where people can enjoy each other's company, for example in the garden or at the table under the gazebo. Children can play in a safe area while adults can relax drinking wine from the cellar or reading under a tree. The thick walls of the house guarantee cool air in the summer so air conditioning isn't necessary. Its proximity to a little village with a beautiful lake and to the old market town Merate makes shopping convenient. Several restaurants are within walking distance and three churches are also nearby.
