About Maurizio

My sister and I were born in the house next door. The house of chicks takes this name because originally housed up to 400 chicks that the war provided a chance to gain for mom and dad. After that we moved to Sondrio, the house has remained a refuge for summer and weekends and slowly we arranged to accommodate relatives and friends.

Why Maurizio chose Ardenno

Now, with our grown children, we'd love to meet new people with whom to share this place of nature and peace. We thought it would be a shame to keep the house empty for much of the year and that it was right to make known our seats to as many people as possible.

What makes this chateau / country house unique

The house overlooks the large backyard, where we planted a small vegetable garden, some fruit trees and a bit 'of colorful flowers. In front you see the panorama of Colmen, a hill of glacial origin that is all that remains of the glacial retreat hundreds of years ago. On the roof we have also put 21 solar panels to harness the sunlight in good weather. We have no problem of space to store their bikes.

Casa tranquilla con un bel giardino e proprietari gentilissimi e affabili

  • 5 of 5

La casa si trova in una zona molto tranquilla ai piedi della meravigliosa Val Masino.

Da qui si possono fare diversi tipi di escursioni dalle semplici passeggiate all'alpinismo. La casa ha un bellissimo curato giardino dal quale si possono scorgere le cime dei monti circostanti.È una tipica casa di campagna carina e accogliente.

Maurizio e la sua famiglia sono stati fantastici.

Sicuramente ci ritornerò!
