Two weeks spent in the Valtellina at the height of summer.
The house was ideally situated for exploring the various different small valleys that lead to the high mountains encircling the valtellina.
The house is in a quiet neighbourhood with little or no distractions.
Everything in the house was as expected and we echo the recommendation to eat at the rifugio Mello.
The location of this property is quite breathtaking- surrounded on every side by high mountains. Our hostess gave us a warm welcome and regularly brought us produce from her garden - google translate facilitated basic interaction! The flat itself is basic but more than adequate- you have to walk through the single bedroom to access the twin room, which might not suit everyone. Everything is spotlessly clean and all essentials provided. If you like to cook yourself the cupboards are empty so do bring basics like salt, pepper, sugar etc. At first it felt a little bit off the beaten track, but so many lovely places are within an hour’s drive - we visited many of the Lake Como resorts, but also enjoyed driving up into the mountains into Switzerland. Lugano isn’t too far away and is well worth a visit. We had a truly memorable holiday - all in all very highly recommended!
