About the property

Borgo Verginate Lake of Como

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

fabulous location, beautifully appointed apartment

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is exactly as described in this listing. Spacious, nicely appointed with comfortable furniture and spotlessly clean. The small kitchen was well equipped and consideration had even been given to provide washing up liquid.

Roberta and Luigi met us on our arrival to show us around the apartment. We had a small problem with the bed linen not fitting the bed which was addressed quickly. Roberta is an attentive and generous host.

Located around 500mtrs above the lake amongst the terraced olive groves and small-holdings it is a rural retreat with stunning views from the balcony and the gardens. The road leading up to the apartment is a bit hairy the first time, as the bends are very tight, but after a few tries we were confidently whizzing up and down! We had mild evenings and ate our dinners on the balcony or at one of the tables in the gardens every night, enjoying the views, the wildlife and the glorious scent of jasmine on the breeze.

The apartment's location on the east side of the lake is absolutely perfect for exploring the area. We would recommend a trip to Castello Di Vezio on the hillside above Verenna, hiring a motorboat for a private trip around the lake from Luca at Rent a Boat in Lierna, a drive up to Esino Lario to follow the well signposted paths for a gentle (or if you prefer, strenuous) walk around the mountainside and a trip to Gravedona to try some of the best gelato at La Carapina on the promanade. We also drove to St Moritz, but Roberta told us it is possible to take the train from Bellano which might be more relaxing!

Useful tips: the Iperal supermarket at Calico is the best in the area (better than the busy supermarkets in Milan).

Vistas maravillosas del lago, paz y tranquilidad!

  • 5 of 5

Las vistas desde este lugar son mejores que en las fotos, es un lugar idilico rodeado de jardines preciosos y vistas espectaculares de las montaña y el lago. Atardecederes preciosos. Junto a rutas de senderismo increibles y caminos de montaña. Necesesario venir con coche. El camino para llegar a la casa tiene una pendiente muy fuerte y es de tierra y piedras, venir con un buen coche, es una buena aventura subir aqui.

Toller Blick...

  • 5 of 5

Wunderschöner Blick auf den See, sehr nette Vermieter, tolle Wohnung.

Nur die Zufahrt teils auf Schotterwegen im Zickzack den Berg hinauf ist etwas mühsam :)

Atemraubende Anfahrt zum atemraubenden Blick

  • 5 of 5

In Borgo Verginate fanden wir eine Ferienwohnung vor, in der wir uns sofort wohl fühlten: helle Räume, modern, funktional und geschmackvoll (ohne überflüssigen Tand) eingerichtet. Auch der Außenbereich ist liebevoll gestaltet und bietet diverse kleine Sitzgruppen, so dass der überwältigende Blick auf den See aus verschiedenen Perspektiven genossen werden kann.

Zu betonen ist auch das Engagement der Besitzer, die eine naturnahe Ferienanlage geschaffen haben, sich viel einfallen lassen und sehr bemühen, ihren Gästen einen erholsamen Urlaub zu ermöglichen.

Nicht unerwähnt sollte aber auch bleiben, dass es sowohl zu Fuß von den nächsten Ortschaften als auch mit dem Auto nicht ganz ohne Anstrengungen ist, dieses kleine Paradies zu erreichen. Nach anfänglichem Zögern haben wir es dann aber doch geschafft, unser 50 Jahre altes Coupé direkt vor dem Haus zu parken, mussten aber auch miterleben das ein Feriengast sich und/oder seinem Auto diese Anfahrt nicht zutraute. Aber auch in diesem Fall erwiesen sich unsere Gastgeber als Ansprechpartner, die eine gute Lösung für dieses Problem fanden.

Gerne empfehlen wir die Ferienanlage an Freunde und Bekannte weiter.

Renate und Karl

impecable !

  • 5 of 5

Merci à Roberta et Luigi pour cette excellente semaine à Borgo Verginate !

- les appartements ont une superbe vue et sont très agréables

- Borgo verginate est très bien situé, loin du monde, près de sentiers de randonné et toutefois proche du lac et des ferry

- Les hôtes sont très gentils et donnent de bons conseils

- Roberta avait même ajouté un lit et une chaise de bébé

Bref, nous avons passé un très bon moment.

Traumhafte Aussicht

  • 5 of 5

Wir waren über Ostern 2014 zu Gast bei Roberta und ihrem Mann. Trotz der Feiertage lief alles reibungslos. Wir bewohnten das App. 702. Es war ausgesprochen sauber, was sonst bei Ferienwohnungen gerne vernachlässigt wird. DIe Aussicht ist spektakulär, allerdings ist dafür auch die Anfahrt den Berg hoch etwas abenteulich. Ein kleiner Tipp für künftige Gäste: Das Appartment ist, wie auf den Bildern ersichtlich, mit einem Fliesenboden ausgestattet. Dieser kann zwar gut gereinigt werden, ist aber "sockfuß" etwas kühl. Also in der Übergangszeit "Hausschuhe" mitnehmen. Roberta ist jeodch sehr aufgeschlossen gegenüber Verbesserungsvorschlägen und wir werden uns gern bei einer späteren Reise davon überzeugen, ob diese umgesetzt wurden :-).

Grüße Henning & Marcel
