Overview

About the property

New apartment with great view over the valley, between Lake Como and Bergamo

Welcome under the skies of Lombardy!

'That branch of Lake Como turns off to the south between two unbroken chains of mountains, all bays and inlets [...]', as Alessandro Manzoni described our territory, so today the lake turns into river and the mountains that surround our valleys are the landscapes in which you will feel pleasantly immersed.

A Warm Welcome to the apartment 'The Betrothed'!

Lying where Lake Como gives way to the river Adda, the residence 'The Betrothed' is the perfect solution for those who decide to spend a holiday dedicated to the exploration of the Alps.

The town of Calolziocorte is perfectly central and well connected to reach the main attractions of this beautiful piece of Lombardy, at the foot of the mountains Resegone and Grigna, leaning on the plains of Brianza.

The apartment 'The Betrothed', newly refurbished in a former convent in the old part of Calolziocorte town, is set in elevated position and from the large terrace looks towards the lake, the river and the San Martino valley. The central yet quiet location offers every kind of comfort, with a breathtaking view and the ability to venture out on foot for the hilly paths.

The interior of the apartment, modernly furnished, allows you to enjoy a holiday of comfort, in an environment where every detail is thought out for you to feel pampered!

We offer free wi-fi connection with our Internet key, to be connected to your own personal computer, to check e-mail, plan your activities and much more!!!

We are waiting for you!

LIVE LOMBARDY

North of Italy is a lovely place to be explored! And certainly one of the most beautiful places is the Lake Como area.

To the south the plains, to the north the peaks of the Alps and in the middle the Lake District!

Magnificent scenery await you in Lombardy: the clear blue waters of Lake Como which reflect the snowy mountains around, the trails that climb the peaks of the Alps and Pre-Alps, the quiet countryside ...

Great culture and history await you at the same time: the cities of Bergamo, Monza, Milan, Lecco and Como are just some of the most beautiful and close, and the numerous shrines, castles, museums ...

Good food and good wine: the rich cuisine of Lombardy suits all tastes with pasta dishes, meat, fish and the delicious local sweets!

The climate changes greatly from season to season: hot in the summer with the opportunity to swim in the lake and to enjoy the cool mountain valleys, cold in winter with snow and blue skies!

Many activities you can do are connected to the lake with water sports, but you can always walk on the mountain trails, climb and try some mountaineering.

CALOLZIOCORTE

Calolziocorte lies exactly where the Lecco branch of Lake Como turns in the river Adda. The place, as narrated by the famous writer Alessandro Manzoni, is collected in a valley, the valley of San Martino, and is dominated by the Resegone mountain. The lake and the river flow at the center of the valley.

The town with its picturesque villages allows you to enjoy excellent prospects of the valley and the lake.

Calolziocorte offers restaurants, banks, supermarkets. A nice walk along the river lets you explore the Northern Adda Park and now, thanks to the new ciclo-pedestrian bridge that crosses the river, also lets you explore the are by bike. The monastery of 'Lavello' is a jewel of sacred art that can be visited on the banks of the river. The new bike path connects Calolziocorte to Lecco and to the path along the river Adda, which goes for tens of kilometers to the south.

In neighboring Vercurago, at walking distance from the apartment, you can reach the so-called Castle of Innominato.

Many scenic trails depart from the hillside villages of Calolziocorte.

The strategic location of the town allows you to quickly reach all the attractions of Lake Como area, explore the mountains of our area and visit the city of Lecco, Bergamo and Milan.

Modern apartment with a few disappointments.

  • 3 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in a modern, mostly well equipped apartment overlooking Calolziocorte. (Although the photo on the website was taken further up the hill, thus providing a false impression of what view to expect.)

The owner was friendly and helpful with good suggestions of where to go, where to eat and what was available.

The apartment was spacious with comfortable beds and the kitchen had everything we wanted except a microwave and toaster. The bathroom was enormous and was very modern and well appointed.

The terrace was extremely large with shade or sun as you required. An outside table, chairs and deck chairs made it a good spot to relax late in the day.

A 30 minute drive to the beautiful town of Varenna (nearest ferry) was an easy and scenic trip. Car access to the apartment was difficult although a secure garage was provided.

Overall, make sure you are willing to pay top dollar for a modern apartment with some drawbacks.

Stunning apartment in the hills of Calolziocorte

  • 5 of 5

Matteos apartment in the hills of Calolziocorte is stunning. It is equipped with everything you need and has a spectacular terrace with a view of Calolziocorte, the lake and the surrounding area. From the apartment many attractions in the area are reachable in short distance. We would recommend to go to Bergamo, Bellagio, Lecco and Piani d'Erna by funiculare. Matteo and his parents were the perfect hosts. They always answered our questions immediately and gave us advice and many recommendations. We highly recommend this apartment and would definately go there again.
