This charming village house, 300 years old and steeped in history, has been fully renovated by the present owners to provide modern comfortable accommodation with stunning views of Lake Como and the surrounding mountains. For families, groups or couples, this house has a special quality. Just stand by the window and let your heart soar.
The house is set back from the main road on a cobbled lane. A vaulted corridor leads to an ample terrace for dining and lounging. Up stone stairs is the light and modern living and kitchen space with double windows onto the lake. The main bedroom (also with lake view) and bathrooms are on this level. Upstairs a spacious attic bedroom has views of the ancient village and the forest. Flatscreen TV with UK satellite channels.
The upstairs room (twin beds) is equipped with games and a DVD player to entertain children. We can hire cot and high chair for you if needed, and water and energy costs are included in your rental.
Although the building is centuries old, the decor is light and contemporary, with cosy details, like the wood-burning stove (wood provided), to make the house welcoming all year round. The thick stone walls mean it is never too hot in summer nor too cold in winter.
Parking in a secure double garage is about 100m away at the end of the narrow cobbled street. But a car is not essential!
Acquaseria, part of San Siro, is the perfect base for your holiday, with a wonderful family beach and probably the best pizzas on Lake Como. Il Campanello was once part of a convent on the Antica Via Regina, so it has a long tradition of welcoming travellers to the lake area, and we are happy to continue! We provided lots of information and maps to help you make the most of every day. But if you don't feel like going far, this is the perfect place, because the lovely beach, perfect for swimming and sunbathing, is only five minutes down a cobbled path, and the village has everything you need.
