Our family are originally from Bergamo and my Father moved to England in the 60's but most of our family remain in this beautiful area of Lombardy. We love the Lombardy region for its fantastic food and wines and easy access to the best Northern Italy has to offer - The Lakes, Milan, Venice, Verona, Monza to name but a few. The region has much to offer from a natural, cultural, arts and architectural perspective.

A truly authentic Italian residence
We had a lovely holiday at Lago di Endine in July. The villa was excellent, very well equipped, clean and close to this beautiful lake. In addition, the gated development is maintained extremely well and the Italian neighbours were all very nice. During our two-week-stay we didn’t hear any English around the development or the village – a truly authentic Italian residence.
During the day, we did many sightseeing tours to the nearby towns and visited the bigger lakes where most tourists go - and always truly enjoyed coming back to this peaceful, tranquil and very non-touristy setting. In the evenings, we enjoyed walking around the lake, eating at the fantastic nearby restaurants and having lots of ice cream in the village.
The kitchen diner is the best room of the house, with a lovely big table as well as two comfortable armchairs next to a big window with a lovely view. This was also the coolest room of the house. The second reception room got a small sofa and TV, very comfy in the evening or to let the kids watch some TV on their own. The patio is fantastic for BBQs or al fresco breakfasts.
The master bedroom is very big and comfortable. The second bedroom is much smaller, but definitely got enough space for our sons. The additional sofa bed in the second reception room downstairs is good for occasional use.
Great communication with Mark, the owner, and Sandy, the property manager. Both were extremely friendly and helpful! Thanks a lot for a lovely stay in Italy!
Fantastic place to stay, perfect for families!
We stayed at the property as a party of five- two adults and three children. We had a wonderful holiday here. The property was perfect for a family and great for children. The spacious kitchen/dining area was brilliant.
The property was extremely well presented and very clean. It was very well equipped and we found the file of ‘things to do’ very resourceful.
The location was perfect, we managed trips to Venice/Milan/ Verona and many other places. The lake is stunning and pretty much right on your doorstep. The children could explore themselves with a park very close by.
The owners were fantastic with communicating and I would highly recommend this property to anyone. We would absolutely stay here again.
Excellent - a little piece of tranquility
We had a great time at the Lake. The house was excellent and the most well equipped of all the places we have stayed. It was great being so close to the Lake (for swimming and boating), La Fonte (for pizza and tiramisu), Il Forno (for bread and pastries) as well as La Dama Bianca (for ice-creams and espressos)! We visited Bergamo old village, Aquasplash, Lovere, Refugio Alpe Corte, and the Parco Avventura in Clusone - all great places. The weather was fantastic and the only slight negative to the whole week was getting mosquito bites despite using plug-ins, sprays and wipes!
We would thoroughly recommend your house to anyone who wants a relaxing (and fun-packed) holiday in a peaceful location
Charming and Peaceful right on the lake
We probably visited out of season (May) but the location was so peaceful it was wonderful. To wake to nothing but the birds singing and the sun streaming in the window was a joy.
The villa itself was charming. I would describe it as being in the style of a chalet rather than a traditional seaside villa which we are used to. It was perfectly equipped with everything we needed and I honestly can't think of one thing we looked for couldn't find.
The main bedroom was airy and comfortable with plenty of wardrobe space. There was a washroom (toilet, bidet and basin) in between that and the second bedroom. This bedroom was very warm as it only contains one skylight, which couldn't be left open in the day. Therefore by the time we returning in the evening it was very stuffy. We compensated for this by leaving the balcony doors open in the master bedroom and letting the air flow through. There is no air con, so whilst there are large fans provided, I would imagine in summer it could get quite hot - us Brits aren't used to the heat! Again though, this bedroom had plenty of storage space.
My son slept in downstairs in the sitting area on a sofa bed. This was probably the more cool room in the house.
We spent most of our family time outside at the table or inside the kitchen area which was beautifully set up to contain all of us.
There were lots of books and game for the children - not that they needed occupying and we were so busy!
The villa felt very secure and being in a gated community provided that extra exclusivity. The neighbours were very pleasant too.
Literally a couple of minutes away is the wonderful La Fonte restaurant. Really family friendly - what better encouragement to not bother cooking in the evening.
A stroll around the lake (well not all of it) every evening was beautiful and then back through the village to work up an appetite.
We stocked up on groceries in the supermarket on the first day and then had everything we needed at the beautiful little bakers on the way to the villa. Our son would walk up most mornings to get fresh supplies.
Fabulous stay *****
A wonderful home from home stay ideally placed for exploring the area or comfortable enough to simply chill and enjoy the beautiful location. And when I say beautiful, I mean breathtaking! Clean, friendly, efficient, great communication - would recommend and would not hesitate to return. The Dashti family x
