Why The Owner chose Plesio

The house was planned in the 70s by a very well-known architect in the area. It is in a chalet style and is located in a 4000 sqm large plot surrounded by greenery and trees. The entire upper floor is completely paneled with wood. Even the scent of the wood gives you the homey feeling to be in a cozy house in the mountains. Add to this the breathtaking view of the lake. Heavenly.

What makes this chalet unique

Calm, away from masstourism

Beautifully decorated, beautiful views, lovely location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for 3 nights and hated to leave. The apartment is adorable, the views are to die for, it's just a few minutes drive into Menaggio, which then provides easy access to all the other lovely towns around the lake. We booked this particular place in part because of the restaurant. It ended up not being open at all while we were there. However, we didn't mind at all since we ate lunches and some dinners in town and it was fun making our own meals in the mini kitchen the rest of the time. We'll definitely be booking here again when we return to this lovely place.

Plesio is a large area with a lot of nature and few people. The village center (5 minutes on foot) is a sleepy little village in which the time seems to stand still. A nice one

small shop offers the villagers the daily necessities such as

fresh bread, cold cuts etc. Next door in the bar, the locals enjoy their espresso and the daily fun.

Plesio is not situated on a through-road, after the village it goes directly into the mountains which invite to walks. Mass tourism is far away, here one is right when one loves nature.
