Eine herrlich erholsame und ruhige Woche

  • 5 of 5

Die Wohnung ist geschmackvoll eingerichtet und bietet alles, was man so braucht. Auf einem der beiden grünen Höfe findet man immer auch ein schattiges Plätzchen. Melania und ihr Mann haben uns sehr freundlich empfangen und dafür gesorgt, dass wir uns von Anfang an zuhause gefühlt haben. Fosseno selbst liegt am Berghang (ca. 10 Autominuten vom See). Wer es ruhig mag, ist hier sehr gut aufgehoben, sollte aber seine Einkäufe gut planen, denn einen Laden gibt es nicht, dafür aber ein familiäres Bar/Ristoro mit leckerem Essen. Man sitzt zum Frühstück draußen unter Glyzinien und blickt übe die Dächer auf den Südteil des Lago und über die Po-Ebene bei klarer Sicht bis zu den Bergen im Süden - herrlich beruhigend.

Liebe Melania, hab vielen Dank für eine wunderschöne Sommer-Woche in Eurem Haus!

alles tip-top. Jederzeit gerne wieder

  • 5 of 5

Das Haus entsprach in allem der Beschreibung im internet. Toller Service vor Ort wie Wäschewechsel etc

Es war alles reichlich vorhanden wie Geschirr, Handtücher etc.

Auch waren die Betten bereits bezogen und Abfalltüten, Kaffee, Gewürze etc vorhanden.

Sehr netter Kontakt zum Vermieter auch im Vorfeld schon per email. Sehr zu empfehlen.

Wir haben unsere 14 Tage in Fosseno sehr genossen und uns super erholt.

Sehr erholsames Haus und die Lage nicht nur für die Erwachsene sondern auch für die Kinder!

  • 5 of 5

Charmantes Haus, ein wundersamen Garten mit Kletterrosen mit schönen Duft in ein ruhiges Dorf mit einem herrlichen Blick auf Lago Maggiore. Das Haus ist sehr stillvoll Dekorierte wo man wie zuhause fühlt. Ein Kräutergarten mit Salbei, Thymian und Rosmarin. Am Rande des Dorfes liegt ein sehr grosser Urwald mit die Möglichkeit zu wandern, Mountain Biking oder Joggen.

Ein lokales Restaurant unmittelbar in der Nähe mit sehr freundlichen Menschen und köstlichen lokales Essen und leckeren weine.

Sehr erholsames Haus und die Lage nicht nur für die Erwachsene sondern auch für die Kinder!

Aum Shanti!
