About Francesca

I studied classical literature and I love literature and reading in General. I like to meet and get to know the people of distant countries and hear their stories of life. You're Welcome!

Francesca purchased this chalet in 2004

Why Francesca chose Brescia

I love nature and the silence of this farmhouse surrounded by greenery that offers really unforgettable moments

What makes this chalet unique

There is a great chimney on the outside terrace which makes it really special the cool summer nights under the starry sky. And if by chance the starry sky is not you can choose for a dinner in Tavern, equipped with fireplaces and a special oven for the Pizza!

A recommander

  • 5 of 5

La maison correspond tout à fait à son descriptif : idéalement située en hauteur, nous étions au frais le soir, c'est très agréable.

Nous étions 8; la maison est très grande et spacieuse, bien équipée.

De nombreuses possibilités de ballades à pied, à vélo , un site d'escalade est également accessible en 20 minutes à pied, depuis la maison.

Francesca et Aldo ont été très prévenants : ils nous ont fourni tous les informations dont nous pouvions avoir besoin avant notre arrivée et durant notre séjour, ils ont également été très précieux pour divers renseignements.

Un grand merci à eux.

Mooi huis in prachtige omgeving

  • 5 of 5

De woning is een prachtige woning op een mooi plekje boven op de berg Monte Maddelena. Het huis is precies zoals op de foto's en in de omschrijving. Het huis is ruim, grote slaapkamers en twee badkamers, wat erg prettig is. Wij waren met een groep van 6 personen en kwamen speciaal voor de Mille Miglia. Vanaf de berg hoorden we de auto's al en hebben leuke dagen in Brescia gehad.

We hebben de woning als zeer prettig, netjes en schoon ervaren.

Op loopafstand zit het Grillo Restaurant. Hier wordt in het restaurant door de kok de vleesgerechten op de grill bereid, een leuke belevenis.

De Monte Maddelena heeft leuke wandelmogelijkheden, wij zijn zelfs vanaf het huis naar Brescia gewandeld, heerlijk!

De gastheer en -dame zijn vriendelijke mensen die altijd bereikbaar zijn voor tips en adviezen. De woning is een aanrader!

Great family vacation

  • 5 of 5

We were two families with three little children spending our holidays in the house of Francesca and Aldo on Mount Maddalena in Brescia. We enjoyed the relaxed and beautiful atmosphere of the house, laying in the forest over the tops of Brescia. We had still summer, but while in Brescia it was hot and sticky the climate on the hill was very comfortable and refreshing. We spend the time either on one of the terraces, on the playground of the house or by one of the seas nearby (Lake of Garda, Lake of Idro or Lake of Iseo). The children loved to play in the playing room with lots of stuff for children as well. The house was very nice and big enough for eight people. Everything we needed was there, even a great wood-fired pizza oven.

Francesca and Aldo were very friendly and helpful. Thank you, Francesca and Aldo, for the great time in your house.

Une location exceptionnelle à un prix abordable

  • 5 of 5

La location est un peu difficile à trouver : ne vous inquiétez pas, les propriétaires, Francesca et Aldo, nous donnent rendez-vous au musée Mille Miglia, très facile à trouver et disposant d’un parking. Située en hauteur, sur une petite montagne ( ;-) ), elle domine Brescia et apporte un peu de fraîcheur : 4° Celsius de moins « qu’en bas », appréciable quand les températures atteignent 35°.

La maison est telle qu’elle est décrite, en mieux : charmante, dans un grand jardin couverts de grands arbres à l’ombre bienfaitrice où Aldo élève des abeilles pour leur miel, elle est spacieuse, il y même un grand sous-sol aménagé. La literie est bonne, les salles de bain agréables. Elle dispose d’une salle de jeu pour enfants et d’une table de ping-pong. Et que dire de la cuisine : on ne manque de rien, pour ceux qui aiment cuisiner, tout y est. La cuisinière ? un piano, pour particulier, au gaz uniquement et un peu ancien certes mais un piano de cuisson !

Les hôtes sont accueillants, chaleureux, à notre écoute, prêts à répondre autant que possible à nos besoins, voire nos envies. Ayant noté que je suis intéressé par la cuisine, Aldo s’est proposé de m’apprendre à réaliser pâtes (nouilles) et pâte de pizza. Apportant farines, levures, œufs, .. et vins, Aldo nous a fait préparer de boules de pâtes de pizza, une chacun … un défi ? et le soir, il est revenu pour les cuire dans son four à bois : bien meilleur que dans un four de cuisinière, croyez-moi. Il m’a laissé jouer avec ses outils de pizzaïolo, cf. une des photos présentant la maison…. C’est moi sur la photo. Evidemment, nous partageâmes le repas avec Aldo et Francesca, pizzas, fondant au chocolat chantilly maison (oui, on peut tout faire dans cette cuisine), arrosés de Bellini pour avoir la pêche ;-) et de Gropello, en s’essayant avec plus ou moins de bonheur et de rires à la langue de Shakespeare. Les pizzas étaient délicieuses bien sûr.

Un détail : le WiFi est limité en volume, donc pas d’excès mais sans que cela manque.

Si vous êtes un peu nombreux aimant calme près de la ville et confort, appréciant balades à pied, sport _ Vélo route/VTT (la descente GR sur Brescia assez technique précédée ou suivie de la montée qui se mérite, vraiment sympa), parapente, deltaplane, …_ ou découverte de l’Italie et de ses plaisirs _ Venise, Milan, Bergame, Vérone, Vicence, le lac de Garde tout proche et même Brescia, ses musées et restaurants/bar à vin _ , n’hésitez pas, je vous recommande sans restrictions cette location.

Great holidays on Maddalena Monte in Brescia

  • 5 of 5

Thanks to Francesca and Aldo, we spent very nice holidays in Brescia. We recommend this accommodation for the welcome of Francesca and Aldo, the calm of the location, the large and very well equipped house itself. We enjoyed having barbecues, eating outside on the terrace, playing ping-pong, and spending leisure time on the terrace. Strategic location of the house gave us the opportunity to visit Brescia, Verona, Cremona, Milano, Bergamo and spend some time around Iseo’s and Garda’s lakes.
