Hallo! I am Lucia, I am in my 50s, I was lucky enough to be born and still live on the shores of Lake Como: one of the most charmig places in the world! Breglia, the small medieval village where I rent my houses, placed like a nest on the heights of the lake, is the land of my grand-parents: an oasis of peace where is amazing to walk among the ancient stone paths, enjoying extraordinary views over the lake and the mountains. For many years I have worked in tourism, and I have been renting my houses in Breglia from ten years. With my experience of the territory I am at the service of my guests, to ensure the best holiday experience in our area:-) After the reception on arrival (I personally take care to welcome you) I like to respect the privacy and tranquility of my guests. Here, surrounded by nature, they can recharge themselves away from the traffic and mass tourism, so during your stay you will see me only if you want to talk to me and ask for information. Among my many hobbies, what I definitely prefer is the study of local history, so if you are curious to know something about the fascinating past of our territory you just have to ask ...
Why Lucia chose Plesio
Breglia is few minutes drive from the busiest and most famous places around the lake. Good bus services connect Breglia with Menaggio (from 7am to 6pm, not on Sunday), and the local restaurants/pizzerias has excellent meals with little expense. Great surroundings with extraordinary views. In this small village people are friendly, you can feel the atmosphere of yesteryear Italy.
What makes this House unique
Both the apartments Ginestra (the smaller) and Pervinca (the bigger ) are very comfortable; each has its own private garden: Ginestra the one in front of the house, like a terrace over the village! And Pervinca has a very big garden behind the house. The fireplace is very pleasant in the cold evenings!!

Our family of four really enjoyed our 6 night stay in Breglia. Lucia was so welcoming, giving us lots of helpful information. Her home is lovely, spotlessly clean with everything you need and a beautiful garden to relax in after a day out. We loved Lake Como and took the day ticket around the middle Lake. The scenery is breathtaking, particularly from Villa Balbianello. We also enjoyed the stunning scenery on the recommended walks from the lovely village of Breglia, especially from the Refuggio Menaggio. A great holiday and Lucia is a tremendous host. Thank you! We would love to return some day!
Lovely huge garden. Breglia is a stunning village. The walks right from the house in all directions are fantastic. Great dog walking for us! We walked up to Rifugio Menaggio one day, and the circular walk around San Domenico is lovely. Lucia was an excellent and very helpful host. Grazie mille!
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!!
