Just a quick email to say thank you and tell you that we enjoyed our stay very much.
We have rented a house in Italy in the Summer almost every year since 2003 and my boys loved yours the best.
It is such a characterful family house which, I am sure, must conjure many happy memories for you.
We enjoyed exploring the lake and Monte Isola but it was simply too hot to venture far afield in the car.
Hopefully, Grazia will have told you that it was left well (with the rubbish sorted, as we have to do in London too).
A la prossima!
Enchanting villa get away! Just as described in the listing. We were there to see the Christo Exhibit - which meant that there were 10's of thousands of people arriving each day making the usually quiet town of Sulvano extremely busy and often chaotic with the bustle of visitors. However, we felt buffered from the crowds in our wonderful centrally located villa. Each day we appreciated our accommodations more! The view was unbelievable - with mountains and lake visible across our front terrace. Also - Licia was available and helpful throughout our stay via email and phone. The housekeeper checked in with us regularly and provided help with any questions we had about navigating the area. We would stay here again. Thank you Licia for sharing your family home!
Very nice stay. Clean house with a nice garden. The terrace with beautiful view over the lake was perfect for nice meals. The kitchen is small but well equipped so perfect for home made cooking. The house keeper helped us a lot. Take time for a boat trip to Monte Isola.
Villa Briciola is located above the town of Sulzano and has stunning views over Lago D'Iseo. The town is quiet and unspoiled by tourism. It has bars and convenience stores. A regular ferry service connects Sulzano to Monte Isola, which has a range of excellent cafes and restaurants. The island has many walks on paved roads and is suitable for cycling (bikes can be hired). The area is spectacularly beautiful and has a relaxed and informal atmosphere. The villa is well equipped - and comfortable. The garden is wonderfully laid out with an excellent pool and several areas for outdoor eating and socializing. I never repeat a holiday experience, but Villa Briciola is tempting me.
we just needed a break!! Briciola was the right place for the right moment . whatever one's want to see it , this helped us to recover , relax and enjoy the atmosphere and...yes, ....: talk to each other. Everything was perfectly there, clean , well maintained..a great BBQ place in the garden..next to the pool I could have had invited quite a few friends of mine.the whole location transpires a sense of familiarity. Strategicaly located..it was easy for us to enjoy day trips to the Alps, Switzerland or shopping downtown Milan. Would suggest to do your grocery at Esselunga ..good value for money.. suggested restaurants: Il Cacciatore, (Laury and Leo are a fantastic couple that run this "trattoria"..good food and wine and may be ..if they are willing and not too busy ..play some sort of karaoke and sing for you too.. ha ha) ..don't go to La Pernice (lousy)..although the view from its terrace is breathtaking.
overall nice vacation..Licia , friendly owner just one phone call away, did all her best to make ourselves at " home". Would certainly recommend La Briciola to my friends and relatives..may be next time will manage to come together with my sister's family.
Villa La Briciola was a perfect vacation choice for us. The view is breathtaking and the villa is comfortable extraordinarily well kept and clean; staff is very helpful and the private pool...Was exactly what our children needed. We will definitely be back.
Villa La Briciola is located about 1-1.5 km uphill from the shore of Lake Iseo and the village of Sulzano.
