Excellent - a little piece of tranquility

5 of 5
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

Perfect apartment.

Beautifully clean and very thoughtfully equipped apartment in a pleasant residential area. Breakfasts were fresh, plentiful, tasty and varied. Very convenient for Bergamot and beyond with some great places to eat recommended by a friendly and very helpful host.
