ECO-FRIENDLY VILLA IN BERGAMO, NESTLING AMONGST THE NORTHERN LAKES

Photos and Description of this 4 bedroom holiday villa in Bergamo - Casa Amici del Bosco

Self-catering villa with hot-tub surrounded by woodland for up to 8/10 people

Eco-friendly villa in one of Italy's best kept secret towns amongst the northern lakes which can accommodate up to 8 people. Situated in the hillside of Bergamo, a medieval walled town, close to the shopping Mecca of Milan, the beautiful villages of Lake Iseo, Como, Garda and ski-resorts of the Brembana and Seriana's Valley.

The refurbished property has been adapted with sustainable local materials, in keeping with the surrounding picturesque woodland, winding roads and eye-catching views of open countryside. Each bedroom has an en-suite bathroom with both shower and bath and a balcony. There is a big indoor dining area with open fireplace, a state of the art country-kitchen, pation with dining area and a terrace with hot-tub and sun-lounges.

On request we can arrange a chef to come to the villa and cook local dishes.

We can also organise city tour with an English speaking guide

x: Surely the most important province's winter station placed at Brembana Valley limb.

Modern and wide looking, Foppolo offers to ski lovers its long tracks suitable for novices and not only. Because of the good spot where Foppolo is located, the snow mantle is well kept untill late spring. Station of international level, it's surely the most known bergamasca and lombarda ski station.

The resort has direct access to 70km of downhill piste with 18 individual pistes served by 8 ski lifts. The ski resort itself is above 1500m, so skiing or boarding back to the resort is usually possible. With skiing above 2000 metres, snow cover is generally reliable.

San Simone ski resort: 8 km from Foppolo, San Simone is one of the most suggestive areas of the Brembana Valley. Especially indicated for those who love to ski at direct contact with nature, San Simone is what you need for your weekends.

The different skills tracks offer fun for novices and experts skiers. This high Brembana Valley' station is the most 'spartan' place of the whole Bergamasco alpine arc. That's because at the time of its creation the skiing matter was the major priority than anything else there.

A very efficentclimb station has been built to better manage the large amount of people who every weekend populate the plants. Besides the usual tracks, the skier has the chance to 'draw' his own tracks on an always substantial snow mantle.

Valtorta ski resort: The ski station of Valtorta Piani di Bobbio is the newest in Brembana Valley. The connection with Piani di Bobbio makes this ski station one of the up modern ski Station in Lombardy. The Ski Station is composed most by intermediate slopes (red), however is pretty good indicated for novices and the experts can enjoy at the slopes called 'Cedrino', 'Nube Bianca' and 'Tre Signori', which are usually the richest of snow and they hold out with snow across the months

The Ski Arear is placed at the center of a cirlce, composed by beautiful mountains leaded by Pizzo Tre Signori

La "Casa Amici del Bosco " hace honor a su nombre. Trato muy cordial, Simona la encargada de la casa es un encanto, y sobre todo nos pesa no haber tenido más tiempo para disfrutar de la casa y el entorno.
Prometemos regresar pronto.
Muy recomendable.
Desde Pucela, Valladolid.

Italian Hideaway

  • 5 out of 5
My party used this property as a base for the Italian GP - an ideal choice as the rail links to the circuit make the normal difficulties easy! The villa is extremely well equipped and all fittings are to a high standard. It is actually quite close to the nearest village although by a very steep narrow road. It accommodates eight people easily both in and outside the villa.
I think all the party would recommend the villa -with two reservations: access to the upper floors internally is by a spiral staircase - not good if you are on crutches as I was [ there are external stairs but difficult at night] and be prepared for biting insects.

Large v.social villa!

  • 5 out of 5
V.impressive ground floor space and really good sitting out/lazing areas outside. Clean and well equipped kitchen. I would recommend to a friend or relative wanting to have a family or fun/party break. The description on the website is very accurate. About a 20 min drive from Bergamo airport and an hour to Lake Como.

Dream Stay in Mapello

  • 5 out of 5
From the first minute that we contacted Simona at Italian Hideaways, our stay at this property has been nothing short of perfection. The house was exactly as described and the location on a secluded, wooded hillside but within a few minutes drive of the local village was exactly what we were looking for.

There were a couple of tiny maintenance issues, but nothing that detracted in any way from our enjoyment of the property - my own home needs a lot more repairs than this place! The fixtures and fittings are of a very high quality, and very much in keeping with the overall feel of the villa. We immediately felt at home here and it was a huge wrench to leave on our final day.

Simona and her mother, who prepared us a fabulous meal on our first night there saving us having to go out and find something after a tiring days travelling, made us feel more than welcome in their family's home. When we did venture out the next evening, we found a fantastic restaurant, La Bussola, about 10 minutes away on the main road towards Bergamo which we enjoyed so much we made it our regular eating-place for the rest of our stay.

We cannot recommend Casa Amici del Bosco highly enough and although we don't know when it will be at this stage, we will most definitely be looking forward to staying here again. Its peaceful and relaxing position combined with its relative proximity to both the Lakes and Milan made it the ideal holiday home for us.

Great time...

  • 5 out of 5
My 7 friends and I had really great time at Casa Amici del Bosco.

Simona was quiet friendly and there we had no problems at all.

The house was amaizing too. Every equipment in the kitchen and living room was there.

The tree terrasses outside with one big grill and the outdoor whirlpool made our holiday unforgetable. We sat down outside till late in the night. Around us only trees and the lights of Mapello in the sky.

During the day we made trips to Bergamo, Milano, Como, Monza and Mapello.

All in all we had a lot of fun and Casa Amici del Bosco is also a place to relax.

Maybe we`ll see us again some day!

Bergamo is a charming city divided into two. Citta’ Alta is the upper walled part of the city. Perched on a hilltop, it enjoys views of the city below and features narrow medieval streets, Renaissance palaces and impressive monuments, such as Colleoni Chapel.

The lower city (Citta’ Bassa) is home to Accademia Carrara art museum plus other galleries and many churches featuring magnificent works of art by Lorenzo Lotto.

Away from town, visitors will find an endless haven of picturesque countryside and a range of activities plus shopping - with fashion capital Milan easily accessible.

Just north of Bergamo is Italy’s lake district, home of Iseo, Garda, Como and Maggiore. These narrow long lakes are of glacial origin and make a picturesque setting as blue waters meet lush green mountains.

In winter, within an hour drive from the villa, you can reach several ski resorts, either in the Brembana's valley or Seriana's valley.

Other Activities: Cookery lesson

Ski: Within an hour drive from the villa you can reach the ski resorts of the Brembana and Seriana Valleys.
