Sleeps 4. 2 Bedrooms. 1 Bathroom.
Situated at the end of a cul-de-sac just off the provincial road between Passo Zambla and Ponte Nossa, the house overlooks the upper Valle del Riso. The wide views from the large balcony across to Monte Grem, with its alpine meadows and dense woodland on the lower slopes, can be enjoyed as you eat or savour a glass of wine. A small barbecue is set up by the covered patio allowing al fresco dining even if the weather is not perfect! The garden is securely fenced and walled, making it ideal for your dog, and is sheltered on one side by a small pine wood. The ground floor also houses the boiler room with a laundry drying rack, and the single car garage. There is an additional parking space outside the front of the house, and no passing traffic.
The cosy living/dining room has an open fireplace, (for decoration only), together with a wood-fueled room heater. This, combined with the central heating radiators in every room ensures you will always have a warm space to come home to. In addition to the soft seating for fireside relaxing, there is an extendable circular dining table with six chairs.
The kitchen, which overlooks the garden, has a fridge freezer, four burner gas oven and a double sink,and plenty of storage cupboards. The work surface can be folded down when not in use.
The bright, modern bathroom has a new shower cubicle and also houses the top-loader washing machine.
The main bedroom has one double bed and full length glazed french doors on to the balcony...with a pleasant hillside view to wake up to!
The second bedroom contains full sized bunk beds: an ideal children's room but suitable for two adults.
Please note: This is a non-smoking house. Internet is not provided, and there is no TV. You can really take a break from 24/7 connectivity!!

About Robin Brewster
I am a university lecturer, living in Italy but working in the Middle East. As a family we have always enjoyed being in the mountains and fell in love with Scullera. As I am often away from the Bel Paese (Italy), we decided to give other people a chance to share a little of our corner of this amazingly beautiful country.
Robin Brewster purchased this House in 2014
Why Robin Brewster chose Scullera
Although quite high up (about 800m above sea level) the house is easy to reach by car or even by bus (bus stop 100m). It is small enough to be cosy in the cooler months, with a log fire, log room heater and gas central heating, but airy and fresh in the summer, far above the humid 'afa' of the Padana plain. You can sit on the balcony, eating a full meal, or sipping a glass of your favourite wine while gazing out across the Val del Riso. And after heavy rain, you can hear the water tumbling down the valley.

Excellent viletta in a beautiful location
We would definitely recommend this apartment and this part of Italy, the Bergamasque Alps north of Bergamo. The mountains are magnificent, day trips to Bergamo and lago Iseo are also fairly easy.
The apartment itself is lovely. One with good facilities - a nice kitchen, washing machine, etc. The best thing about the property is its location and the view from the balcony !
Robin the owner is very helpful and friendly. and provides useful information.
We will visit this place again soon.
Thank you! Happy renters make happy owners! We are always particularly pleased when our guests say they would like to come again. There is so much to see and do in the area that a couple of weeks may not be enough!
esattamente come in foto
la casa è piccola ma accogliente, la vista dal balcone è davvero rilassante! per chi ama la natura è il posto perfetto perché la tv non c'è e non c'è nulla da fare ma se ci si sposta un po' ci sono tutto i servizi necessari. Animali ammessi ma il vicino ha il cane e ci sono un paio di gatti liberi. Relax assicurato
Ferienwohnung wie ein Sternehotel
Wir haben mit unseren zwei Kindern einen sehr schönen Urlaub in Italien in dieser schönen und äußerst gemütlichen Ferienwohnung verbringen dürfen. Die Wohnung ist eine Doppelhaushälfte und ist sehr geräumig. Es gleicht wirklich dem was im Inserat/Beschreibung angeboten wird. Es war alles und wirklich mehr als nötig da. Genügend Bettwäsche, Handtücher sogar Toilettenpapier etc. da. Wir sind sehr dankbar für den ganzen Aufwand den die Hausmeisterin und Mr Brewster betrieben haben. Ich persönlich war froh, das es einen eigenen Parkplatz direkt vor dem Haus gab. Die Gegend ist wunderschön, vor allem zum Wandern. Es gibt jede Menge Kulturangebote in den kleinen Städten rundherum. Man kann nach Mailand fahren, wie gesagt es gibt viel zu tun und die Wohnung ist wirklich gut gelegen und gemütlich, wenn man mal abhängen möchte. Also nochmal vielen Dank
Very nice, comfortable and clean house. Wonderful location, close to interesting tourist places.
We enjoyed our holidays at this house, we had outstanding hospitality, fully equimpded house with everything we needed and even more. Very quite and childrenfriendly place, wonderful view, excelent weather and highly recomended. Thank you Robin, for your hospitality and for our outstanding holidays!!!
While the weather can sometimes be unreliable, the facilities in the house remain the same. Even an out-of-season autumn or winter weekend break will be cosy and comfortable in our little house!
Plenty of well marked walking routes in surrounding hills and forests. Nordic skiing circuits at Passo Zambla (5km). Suspended adventure climbing trails in the pine woods at Passo Zambla.
Fattoria Ariete is an educational farm, together with a mining museum at Gorno (4km).
Clusone has a weekly all-day street market every Monday in its medieval town centre (12km).
Five times a year, the waters are released in a spectacular burst of white water and vapour down Italy's highest waterfall at Cascate del Serio (Valbondione), about 30km.
In Scullera there is a safe play area for very young children, together with a 'bocce' court (similar to the French 'boules').
The excellent La Rustica pizzeria/restaurant serves the most delicious pizza prepared in a wood-fired oven. Their seasonal fresh pasta menu at lunch times is also worth more than one tasting!
