About the property

Two story lodge for 2 /4. Comfy and practical. ValGrande and Lakes very close.

Clematis Lodge is a self contained 50 sqm house on two floors. Perfect for a couple, or single person, it suits four people. Located at the centre of the village, very close to the principal piazza with a parking area, the church and its bell tower, Clematis Lodge has an independent access and patio where it will be a pleasure to rest and read, or have dinner outside. It features antique but practical furniture, wooden floors, a compact kitchen, and an ensuite luxury bathroom with power shower.

The private access to the Clematis Lodge leads on to the patio with flowers, plants and aromatic herbes - available to our guests - creates a quiet and spacious outside area where to lounge or enjoy an evening meal.

Equipped with table and chairs, a small portable barbeque and deck chairs, the patio is a very pleasant spot especially in the lovely Spring and Summer weather.

The ground floor living area, comprising the kitchen and dining table, is furnished to suit all your needs. The kitchen includes a four hob stove, while the large dining table matches the style of the lodge.

The room also features a fabric sofa-bed as well as painting and other works of art. These elements are combined to create an elegant living environment which is, at the same time, perfectly functional.

The first floor presents a wide bedroom with a queen size bed with two mattrasses, wooden floors and stylish decor (two small beds can be added). The room is provided with an ensuite luxury bathroom and leads on to a balcony overlooking the patio.

- Bath towels and linen are provided 7/9 days -

Cossogno is located in the hills of Verbania . Only a fifteen minute drive from the centre of the city and the Maggiore Lake, it is one of the few villages of the Val Grande National Park (a natural reserve and one of the bigger wild area in Europe). About an hour from Milan and close to the Swiss border, the Monte Rosa and Como, Varese, Orta and Mergozzo Lakes, Cossogno is a perfect base from which to experience the Italian Lake District.

Cossogno has limited traffic and noise pollution, especially since cars are parked just outside the centre of the village (handy for luggage transport). You can hear only the church bell strike. Very peaceful.

Nonetheless Cossogno provides all the basic comodities, including a food shop, a coffee shop-trattoria, open for lunch and dinner, as well as a tennis court and beach volley court.

Most importantly however, Cossogno marks the entrance to the great natural reserve of the Val Grande, and therefore borders onto a glorious wood and a variety of hiking trails which are just a few steps from your door.

Clematis Lodge is perfect for visitors who want to enjoy a bit of everything, but it is especially suited to those who value peace and silence and who consider their holiday a time to restore mind and soul. Very peaceful.

Clematis Lodge - House with character
average rating of 4.8 based on 15 reviews

Well equipped, good beds, very clean, beautiful decorated, quiet, friendly host

  • 5 of 5

The lodge is tastefully decorated, has good beds, very clean, is well equipped, has excellent access to hiking paths nearby and 40 min. drive to ValGrande National Park, The Lago Maggiore is a 15 min. drive by car. Laura, the host, is very kind and helpful. The house is in the village center, so churchbells every half hour. Otherwise very quite location. Good restaurant and small supermarket (sells bread) in the village.

Owner's Response: Erica is right; Cossogno is one of the Comuni - main villages - of the ValGrande National Park so that just a few steps from Clematis Lodge you can enter in the woods and access to the hiking paths of the Park while living 15 minutes time from door to the Maggiore and Mergozzo Lakes shore.

Beautiful little house with character!!!

  • 5 of 5

Located at the edge of the Val Grande National Park the little house is far away from the noisy Lake cities and perfect for people who want to relax. Only the church behind the house makes some noise. Laura and Luca, the owners were always very friendly and helpful.

Panoramic recovered - great atmosphere

  • 5 of 5

Back in Germany we can summarize: A great holiday on Lake Maggiore in a great house (Clematis Lodge). We felt completely at home, which was also due to Laura and Luca, who welcomed us with its helpful and pleasant nature and we were always well to questions and concerns. The seclusion in the mountains did the rest of our recreational value. The journey of 10 minutes to the lake made from nothing, particularly since the discoveries also attracted other goals for visiting throughout the lush landscape. The apartment is particularly suitable for two people and is very tastefully decorated and very clean. Unbeatable: The patio to relax. Even the small resort has nice amenities. For eating out, however, a table should be ordered in advance. All in all: relaxation with high recreational value.

Le Kremlin Bicetre

la gentillesse de Laura et le charme du logement

  • 4 of 5

Le logement, très calme, est agencé avec goût, au cœur d'un village charmant de montagne à quelques km du lac Majeur et autres lacs et rivières où se baigner. La location est parfaitement aménagée et propre. On peut se ravitailler à l'épicerie du village pour l'essentiel.

C'est un logement parfait pour un couple, possible avec enfants de 6-8 ans minimum, car il y a des escaliers pour accéder et à l'intérieur de la maison. Il y a une petite cour protégée pour se détendre ou prendre ses repas.

L'accueil et les conseils de Laura nous ont été très précieux pour découvrir la région et ses atouts. Elle sait être présente tout en restant très discrète.

Un séjour très agréable pour découvrir cette région splendide.

Cossogno is a little town on the hills of Verbania, just 15 minutes by car from the city center.

The typical village with houses and streets in stone is one of the municipalities of Val Grande from where we leave for hiking and walking.

Ideally located, the Maggiore Lake Area is an internationally renowned holiday destination. While the gorgeous landscape is a sight in itself, the area also offers a variety of activities which can cater for different types of holiday. What can be promised is a full immersion in nature.

The lakes and their beautiful islands, the Monte Rosa with its neighbouring peaks and the Parco Nazionale della Val Grande; the largest wild area in Italy, with a vast range of trekking paths suitable for everyone, as well as the villas and lake towns with their historical sites to visit, are only a few of the attractions near by. Furthermore, Milan and its excellent shopping district, Varese, as well as the neighbouring Switzerland are no more than an hour away.

At the Maggiore Lake you can really create the holiday you need by chosing among the many activities which range from relaxing on the beach and enjoying local cuisine to sightseeing and sporting, or cultural excursions.
