Live in an authentic Italian Hamlet , a 'magic and charming location' overlooking the lake Como just one hour drive away from Milan. The house, completely rebuilt in 2010, consists of 5 apartaments (one and two-bedrooms) , each one with balcony and a table +BBQ in the garden with a stunning view over the lake. Enjoy strolling in the sourroundings woods, a few steps away there is the famous ancient trail 'Sentiero del Viandante' running along the East cost of the lake.

Harmony and nature without missing all the attractions that the Alpine Region, Milan and Bergamo offer. Enjoy the evening lights of the villages lake side sitting on the balcony tasting a good glass of wine........

The town of Bellano is a short drive away where you can find supermarkets, shops, restaurants, the Marina and sailing club, Railway station, public boats for touring aroung the lake. The lovely and characteristic Varenna and Villa Monastero is 6 km far away, also there you can take the ferry to vist Bellagio and Menaggio.

A mountain road steep and narrow in some places to reach the house; at the moment, there are 50 mt of no asphalted. No spider no trolley. Take note that in google maps our house seems to be overlooking the motorway Milan - Colico while this runs in a tunnel.

About roberta gerosa

Borgo Verginate is a passion for us ! We are two families as owners and we finished in 2010 to rebuild completly the old house; We tried to keep the ancient charme using some of the old stones covering the walls. What remains the same is the amazing lake view and we wish you to enjoy this magic location bringing home the feelings it gives us. Roberta, Luigi, Mauro e Mosè

een fantastisch comfortabel huis

  • 5 of 5

Wij hadden voor onze bruiloft het gehele huis afgehuurd. De weg ernaartoe is wat hobbelig, maar het is het waard.

Het huis is in ieder appartement van alle gemakken voorzien, en als je 's ochtends je luiken opendoet... Een magnifiek uitzicht, waar zelfs de lokale Italiaan van droomt. Met de vrijheid die het biedt om je zelf te zijn, kan je hier volledig tot rust komen en genieten van La Dolce Vita en vooral; Dolce far niente.

Onze dag is een waar sprookje geworden, mede dankzij Borgo Verginate.

Wij komen allemaal zeker terug!

Wir waren jetzt 1 Woche im Oktober in dieser Wohnung. Toll eingerichtet, sehr sauber, herrliche Lage - nur die Zufahrtsstrasse ist ein Abenteuer. Eng, steil, enge Kurven, stellenweise große Schlaglöcher - man sollte gute Nerven und viel Fahrgefühl mitbringen. Insgesamt aber auf jeden Fall empfehlenswert

Wir haben eine wunderschöne Septemberwoche im App 705 verbracht. Die großzügig über zwei Geschosse angelegte Wohnung ist tiptop gepflegt und geschmackvoll gestaltet. Das Allerbeste aber ist diese phantastische Aussicht, für die sich die schon des öfteren erwähnte Anfahrt über eine ultraenge Serpentinenstraße wirklich lohnt. Vom Haus aus gelangt man gleich auf verschiedene Wanderwege und vom Balkon aus kann man jede Menge Fledermäuse beobachten.

Mille grazie a Roberta e amici !

Le bonheur!!

  • 5 of 5

Cette location est une merveille à tous point de vue : l'accueil est génial, l'appartement est très propre, aménagé avec beaucoup de soin, tout est neuf.

La vue est sublime et l'endroit est très reposant, aucun bruits.

L'accès peut faire peur car c'est très escarpé et la route tourne beaucoup (virages en tête d'épingle) mais c'est un charme incontestable!

Nous avons passé un très agréable séjour à borgo verginate (famille de 5 avec 3 enfants). Le lac de Come est magnifique et il y a plein d'activité à faire et de choses à voir.

Vraiment merci à Roberta et Luigi pour cette découverte. nous ne manquerons pas de parler de votre location autour de nous.

A très bientôt j'espère!

The house is located in the very small hamlet of Verginate on the trekking trail Sentiero del Viandante about 5 minutes drive from Bellano on the east shore of the lake Como. We suggest to vist the Orrido Gorge, the Castel of Vezio and the lovely Varenna, the ancient Piona Abbey. By boat you can reach Villa Carlotta and Tremezzo, Menaggio and the famous Bellagio.
