Out and about: Ideally located for the lakes of Northen Italy, Lake Iseo, Como and Garda. Easy day trips to Venice, Verona and Milan. Many walks local to the house in addition to Presolana. Visit the historic old town of Bergamo. Local town of Clusone has a market every Monday. Visit the Waterfall of Valbondione a very short distance from the house. For those who enjoy a bit of shopping the Orio Centre in Bergamo is the largest shopping mall in Italy. Verona offers some fantastic live performances and just a drive away from the house. Enjoy the performance as the sun sets over the Arena. If you enjoy designer shopping try the city of Bergamo or Milan with many designer shops. If you prefer the historic towns take the funicular from Bergamo to Citta Alta where you can find beautiful churches and gorgeous restaurants with spectacular views. Alternatively just take a stroll and enjoy the views.
Scenery and surrounding area: There are many local walks and there is a local map at the house for those keen hikers. If you need an energy boost there are two wonderful patisseries, one in Gromo and one in Clusone, serving beautiful cakes and mini pastries. For those who enjoy their food try one of the many restaurants in Gromo with fine Italian food from pasta, pizza, steaks to Rissoto and polenta.
Many waterfalls run down the mountains to the river, staring at the famous Valbondione waterfall. There are numerous walks along the river, including on the flat. There is a small walk from the apartment to the right hand side as you face the mountain views. Take this walk and you will find numerous waterfalls as well as a picnic area, BBQ area and a local play area for children. There is also a play area along the river from Gromo towards Clusone.
Places to see, things to do: In the Spring they have a try tabogan run at Spiazzi Gromo along with many other outdoor activities. Spiazzi Gromo is surrounded by pine woodlands and has a very open space for picnics and relaxing in the sun. If you feel like a change for the day Switzerland is approximately a 3 hour drive (make sure you take your passport!) and enroute you may wish to visit Lake Como.
Both Milan and Verona arenas and theatres are just over an hour away. Fantastic architecture and pleaces to see, eat and drink. Try the arena in Verona or the Teatro la Scala in Milan. Within 2 and half hours in the city of Venice, many of our guests take day trips there, straight down the A4. Romantic setting, and make sure you take a Gondola as you see a whole new prespective of Venice. For the more adventurus travellers, take to road to Pisa and Florence as a day trip or spend the night in the wonderful city of Florence.

We travelled to Navazza using our own car via ferry from Newcastle to Amsterdam, Amsterdam to Strasbourg, Strasbourg to Navazza. A wonderful journey taking in two city breaks and highly recommended. This was our second visit to the Apartment in Navazza for a winter skiing holiday at Gromo Spiazzi. By taking our own car we were able to take skis, boots and all the other paraphenalia required for a winter sports holiday. The apartment was well appointed, clean, warm and cosy. We had a small problem with electrics but the owner's agent sorted it out the next day. We would recommend eating at the Sports Bar in Gromo. The owners are so friendly and obliging. Ask them to make you a Lasagne or a Macarone Cheese, absolutely delicious. We would definitely recommend this apartment and this part of Italy. The mountains are magnificent, the skiing excellent and the accommodation very welcoming especially when the log fire is lit. We also like the fact that there is a garage to house the skis and car at the end of the day.
It is good to see return visitors. Italy is like a home away from home for me and I am so glad so our guests feel the same.
A fantastic place to stay.
A clean, well equipped property with stunning views of the mountains.
Excellent little place in a beautiful location
Great views , clean air and friendly local owners, great in every respect. Owners very helpful and friendly. Awesome value. Great little pied a terre
Perfect winter retreat
Third time and probably the best visit we have had. The weather worked out perfectly for what we wanted to do. Snowed when we wanted it and brilliant sunshine when we planned to visit lake Iseo.
The property was the of the same standard as we experienced on previous occasions so nothing negative to mention.
Thanks for a great vacation

Small but perfectly formed!
The property is easy to find in daylight although I suggest taking the actual address with you if you'll be arriving in the dark - we woke up a random Old Italian man at 3am when we accidentally trespassed on his property... oops! At least if you have the address they can point you in the right direction!
The apartment itself is lovely. We used the log burner a few times - it was so toasty we had to open the balcony doors!
We loved it so much that we have already booked a mini-break in February 2016 - with our two children!!
Thank for a good stay in Novazza.
We tell about the stay in your appartment in own language.
Vi har boet en uge i James´s lejlighed i Novazza, en helt fantastisk uge, som oversteg alle vores forventninger.
Selve lejligheden er super perfekt til ferie og afslapning, meget velholdt og hyggelig indrettet med alt hvad der er brug for.
Vi brugte altanen meget, og nød den fantastiske udsigt over byen med bjergene i baggrunden. Her er så smukt og dejligt stille.
Naboerne er meget venlige og hjælpsomme, vi klarede os fint på trods af lidt sprog vanskeligheder.
Det var dejligt med garage, hvor vi trygt kunne parkere vores motorcykel, forøvrigt er området perfekt til MC kørsel, små ture til Lago d.iseo og Bergamo.
Der er gode vandre ruter i bjergene omkring byen og længere inde i dalen.
Hvis det bliver muligt vil vi meget gerne vende tilbage.

The property is located near the popular City of Bergamo with its historic old walled city and the new city based below, the old city accessed via cable car. The town of Gromo, with its old Castle offering many restaurants with Italian specialities. Gromo Spiazzi is located in the heart of a wide wood - offers you an ancient medieval village, along with a new urban centre with private houses and hotels. Gromo medieval ruins offer one of the best preserved Medieval Castle in the province of Bergamo; there tourists may enjoy walking through Orobie mountains or taking a break in the Spiazzi pinewood. The property is ideally located for the lakes of Italy, walking and the city of Bergamo. The property is also ideally located for trips to Venice, Switzerland or Verona where you can see a live performance as the sun sets over the arena. There are many restaurants in Gromo along with a deli, patisserie, bank, shops and grocers. Ski: On the mountains surrounding the villages of Lizzola and Valbondione the snow lasts for many months a year and always in good conditions. The slopes are suitable for all kinds of skiers: alpine skiers who come up to the top of the mountains and cross country skiers, who stay on the slopes at the bottom of the valley. Valbondione is therefore a complete ski resort; it can host high level ski events and thanks to its geographical position, at the feet of a rocky mountain up to 3.000 metres, it offers many snowfields as great environment for ski practice. 2 chairlifts, 3 ski lifts, 2 black runs, 2 red runs and 2 blue runs. Lifts start at 1.250 meters up to 1.915 meters. 30 km of runs and 1 ski school, included in the Orobie Ski pass area. Snow conditions are always good thanks to the cold temperature and ski runs can satisfy even the best skiers. Lizzola is a typical mountain village and offers good restaurants, pubs and shops.
