Wow! Absolutely Wonderful home!

  • 5 of 5

It is hard to put into words how wonderful our stay was at this house. The pictures are beautiful but they really don't do it justice. The house is significantly better in person. We were two families staying here (9 people - 4 adults, 5 children) and we had more than enough room. The house is clean, comfortable, beautiful, and felt like a dream. I would only tell you that the road in is not for the weak but it is worth it. The road in is also walkable (not with suitcases). The grounds where the house sits are beautiful and so well maintained. The pool was a huge hit! We could hardly get the kids to go see Italy as they were reluctant to leave the home. Giuseppe and Maura are lovely hosts who welcomed us so warmly. Verona and Lovere were great day trips. We will dream of going back! We strongly recommend this home for your vacation!

Nice characteristic Italian house

  • 5 of 5

We stay here with 6 adults and 2 small children. Nice house and is not a standard house. Nice rooms (all with there own bathroom), good quality beds, clean and comfortable. The kitchen is a nice place to be with a big table in the middle. All necessary equipment is available and from a good quality. Art on the walls etc.

Outside enough space to live and do some games. The route to this house is wonderful and the 4x4 is necessary. we had a great time and I can definitely recommend this accommodation.

If you don't have a big van (bus) with 10 suitcases in - your vacation will be perfect!

But Maura worked out the problem with the way very well. Thanks here for it! I was just a bit confused about the pictures from the online add where pic's was mixed up from two houses but finally the beauty of all tiny little details from the house is AMAZING!

Wenn ihr keinen Kleinbus mit 10 Koffern habt, dann wird euer Aufenthalt perfekt, aber Maura hat das Problem bestens gelöst, vielen Dank nochmal! Ich war ein wenig verwirrt, weil in der Online-Anzeige Bilder von zwei Häusern vermischt waren, der Pool ist nicht am Haus und das Zimmer mit dem riesen Fenster und dem Blick auf den See gehört zu einem anderen Haus weiter hinten. Aber jedes Detail in diesem wunderschönen Haus ist phänomenal und wie in einem Museum kann man stundenlang alles anschauen.

Big hug from Germany to Maura! - hope your flowers are ok!

Catarina, Pete and Giacomo

Perfect Home for big families

  • 5 of 5

The house was wonderful. It is tucked away in the middle of beautiful nature and you can be totally by yourself and enjoy the place. The place is very well equipped for large families or groups, outdoor and indoor. The beds and mattresses were of very good quality. It has furthermore wifi, many tvs, books, games and a lot of kitchen equipment. When it rains you can still be outside under any of the sheltered places around the house. The house has a lot of character and creates a lovely atmosphere. We felt home right away. Maura is a very very friendly and helpful host, and yes thanks also for letting us use the 4 wheel drive car. The kids really loved the place and we all had a great time there and want to come back.

Strawberry vacation

  • 4 of 5

We are very enthousiastic about the house! The location is fantastic, in full nature and with a magnificent view on the lake. I took a picture almost every day, just couldn't get enough of the view. All comfort that we need is present (and even more).

Maura is a very sympathetic hostess. We got a warm welcome and all questions we had, were answered with pleasure.

Thanks for that.

We will certaily recommend the house to our friends!
