Why Lucia chose Breglia
This is a little medieval village (Breglia, municipality of Plesio), was the birthplace of my ancestors. Restful, surrounded by woods, here we enjoy panoramic walks between woods, along scenich paths, just a few minutes drive from the most famous (also busiest and noisy) places around the lake. To find parking is never a problem here: there is a big space close to the Church square, free and without time limits. The village is bus served. There is also a good restaurant close to the house: they serve excellent meals with little expense.
What makes this House unique
The big apartment Pervinca, at the first floor, is spacious and well equipped. It has a wonderful big garden behind the house that we decorated with many varieties of flowers for each season, Japanese maple trees, conifers and fruit trees. There is also a children's playhouse, and a barbecue. In the most sheltered and shady corner I created the 'shade garden' with ferns, blue bells and other flowers that love shade.

Lovely cottage in a stunning location
A fantastic cottage in an absolutely stunning location. It was fantastic to be staying in the lovely quiet village of Breglia with awesome views and lots of lovely walks straight from the door. The cottage was perfect with everything we needed and the owner gave us great suggestions for places to visit and things to do. Lovely large private garden. Wish we could have stayed for longer.
I' m glad to know you enjoyed the calm of our village with the green surrounding, and our cottage with the big garden as well:-)
Greetings from Breglia!
Beautiful and peaceful
We spent a full week in this lovely apartment (2 adults and a 16y/o adolescent). The apartment was very clean and well equipped. The private garden is huge and great for kids. The views from the apartment are breath holding. Lucia was extremely nice and hospitable, and a mine of useful information about the area. Great walks directly from the property, and a great place to start exploring Lago Komo. The village is very quiet and relaxing. We will certainly love to come back!
Great garden! Superb facilities in the house
Nice and peacefull location. Great back garden and luxurious house. Breglia is a nice village with great walking possibilities. But it is a acend of 8km from menaggio which takes some time.
We enjoyed our second stay in Pervinca very much. This from the first day until the last. The apartment was very clean en well equiped. From the house and the beautiful garden you have a wonderful view on the village, lake Como and the mountains surrounding it. In Porlezza there is a large supermarket Carrefour and there is a little shop in Plesio where you can bye food. Lucia, the owner, was as usual very friendly and helpful with information about interesting places to visit. This year we hiked a lot. There are many beautiful hikings starting from Breglia.
Great to have by us Annick and her family for the second time! Thank you for all your kindness:) ciao!!
A quite and nice place
We stayed here for 1 week and we enjoyed it very much. We loved the big garden and our dog loved it too! Everything was clean and Lucia was very friendly and helpful. We got a lot of good information. The car parking was big enough, we always had place. For the unloading of the luggage you can park your car closer to the house. You have to climb a little bit from the parking to the house and going up to Breglia by car is beautiful with many curves. There is a restaurant in Breglia with a good tourist menu. We had a very fine time in Pervinca and at lake Como!
A True Gem!!
Fantastic holiday! Great place for families with small children. We have 3 kids under 5 and found it was great for them. There's a huge back garden which is securely fenced so the kids are safe to run around and you don't have to worry about them. There's a lovely fire if you need it and BBQ area outside with sun loungers. Great views from the front too and a little playground for the kids just down the road. Lucia could not be any more helpful and was a fantastic source of information (she's a tour guide!). The area is very quiet so nice to get away from busy life! Lucia has thought of everything and we would highly recommend her!
