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
