Wir (6 Personen, davon 4 Kinder zwischen 3 Mte – 9 Jahren) verbrachten eine tolle Woche bei schönstem Sommerwetter in diesem sehr schön und originell ausgebauten/umgebauten Ferienhaus (ehemaliges Landwirtschaftsgebäude). Die Lage auf einem Hügel oberhalb von Ispra ist idyllisch. Schöner Garten mit Blick auf den Lago Maggiore (durch die Bäume).
Sehr freundliche Nachbarn, welche einen kleinen landwirtschaftlichen Betrieb führen mit Gänsen, Hühnern, großem Gemüsegarten und 2 Hunde (welche mit den Nachbarshunden kommunizieren). Tierfreunde werden sich auch an den Tierhaare im Haus kaum stören, welche naturgemäß schwierig zu entfernen sind.
Das Haus besteht aus 2 Schlafzimmern, einem Wohnzimmer, einer Terrasse mit tollem Blick und Küche mit großem Esstisch, Holzofen und Induktionsherd, ohne Abwaschmaschine, Kühlschrank mit Gefrierfach. Bequeme Betten (welche bereits bezogen waren ☺). WLAN mit gutem Empfang. Zufahrt über eine schmale, steile, teils unbefestigte Strasse. Auch mit VW-Bus machbar (wir klappten dann aber die Seitenspiegel ein).
Herzlichen Dank an Enrica
We had a really nice time at 'Casa sul monte'. It's a nice house at the top of the mountain with a beautiful view!
The house is very nice and has a very organic feel. There is a large garden around the house and lots of freedom. The beach can be reached via a very scenic walk down to the lake. The walk is a bit strenuous as the house is on the top of a hill but should be no problem for most people. The owners are very nice and helpful. We would recommend this house to anyone!
We very much enjoyed staying at the Casa sul Monte for a special week, where we hosted a bbq party for the whole family gathering from around Europe.
The setting with large encolsed garden, view of the lake, surrounded by woodland and friendly farmer neighbourghs on one side, is so good that makes up for the difficult access road. We appreciated the eco features of the house, and in early June the solar panels provided all the hot water we needed, with no need to use the wood burning stove. The house has got very welcoming large living area, with a delightful balcony particularly enjoyable to catch the last of the evening sun.
The bedrooms have clean comfortable beds, but lack wardrobe hanging space and mirrors; we suggested to the obliging owner to improve on this and she welcomed our feedback.
Alltoghether the house has a special feel because of the combination of the natural environment and the rustic/eco finish, and we though it was perfect for inviting extra guests for an informal party, without disturbing the neighbourghs.
During the stay we also enjoyed visits, aperitifs and meals around the stunning lakes and the location proved to be an excellent base for touring the area. Last but not least, fantastic gelateria (artisan icecream shop) just at the end of the road!
Wir waren bei sonnigem Wetter mit 6 Personen in diesem schön gelegene und liebevoll gestaltetem Haus und hatten einen wunderbaren Blick auf den See, Ruhe und Einsamkeit zum Entspannen. Wir würden jederzeit gerne wieder kommen.Die Vermieter sind sehr hilfsbereit und haben uns sehr nett empfangen. Alle interessanten Sehenswürdigkeiten sind gut zu erreichen und es bieten sich viele Wandermöglichkeiten.
We stayed at Casa sul Monte (House on a hill) during the early May holidays and besides the bad weather the location was close to perfect. We, family with three children, had enough space in and around the house. The house is fully equiped with an oven, wooden stove, TV and satellite, two bedrooms and a bathroom downstairs.
The location on a hill is beautifull with a great view over the lake and village. Especially in the dark it's ery romantic with all the small lights blinking everywhere.
Also the neighbours are friendly and we even got some fresh eggs. The children played with the dogs and could look at the goats and cow. I am sure we will come back to this place again and would like to thank Daniela for the good care and tips she gave us.
Completely renovated in 2009, located in a privileged environment at the top of Mount Ispra (said the priest). Very quiet location with terrace facing west and then to Lake Maggiore. The farm of more than 1.5 hectares, is partly occupied by an important archaeological area left untouched by the thirteenth century. The current settlement occupies in fact part of the 'enclosure castle' that was - at the time - the Battle of Angera defensive position. At the entrance you can still see the wide and deep stone arch that regulated access. Much of the land is wooded and crossed by paths are still usable.
Home on the mountain is attentive to ecology: the heating is underfloor and electrical radiant panels: the water in the panels is heated by a wood-burning thermal cooker and solar panels. Free connection 24h!
