About the property

Fantastic renovated apartment in the castle in 1200. On the ground floor you enter the living room with TV, to the left is the kitchen fitted with fridge, microwave and Nespresso machine, 4-burner stove and oven, extractor fan. They included are a set of dishes, glasses and pots enough to cook comfortably. On the first floor there are two bedrooms, one with a large double bed and the other with two single beds. The spacious bathroom is complete with a relaxing bath. The apartment has its own boiler and heating with fan coils on the floor of the living room and classic radiators in the bedrooms.

Luciano will be happy to give you a lot of information about places to visit, lakes, walks to do by bike or on foot, and the services you will find in this area.

The apartment is located in a castle in 1200 within easy reach of the motorway and only 25 minutes from Malpensa Airport and 28 km from the Swiss border, a few steps from Lake Varese and Lake Maggiore.

It is located in a strategic position and makes it easily accessible to our guests a variety of entertainment solutions and ability to easily reach the main artistic centers and cultural surroundings.

It becomes a track for cyclists, mountain bikers, hikers, hiking enthusiasts, the better to see the Province of Varese and its points of interest.

You can take the bicycle of Lake Varese to get to the cycle of Lake Comabbio, attreversando the paths of the Regional Park Campo dei Fiori, the sacred Mount of Varese and Three Crosses Forte Orino, pausing in UNESCO sites where recorded three stations pile dwellings of Varese lakes: the isolino Virginia Biandronno (the small island that is definitely one of the most picturesque and popular destinations by travelers, located a few meters from the west bank of Lake Varese), Bodio Central and Sabbione of

Bronze Age.

The archaeological site of Castelseprio and Torba marks the stage in the natural reserve and LIPU of Brabbia Swamp.

We also recommend excursions to Lake Orta where stands a dall'imperdibile town charm: Orta San Giulio, fronted by the beautiful island of San Giulio. The characteristic feature of Orta is given Renaissance and Baroque art that characterizes its Stately palaces and its magnificent gardens.

Awesome place and environment!!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed everything from the apartment and the surroundings. The weather could not be more perfect. We visited Lake Como and the landscape, in general, is stunning. I was blessed to have the opportunity to meet Mr. Luciano and Pisci as well. Thank you so much!

Quiet and comfortable apartment in a very small village

  • 4 of 5

This is a comfortable apartment in a much larger building. It was very quiet, as there did not seem to be any other people in the rest of the building. After entering a private courtyard through a small portal in the large courtyard door, the apartment is just to the right, up a long exterior flight of stairs. There is a large off-street parking area just outside the courtyard door.

On the first level of the apartment is a large living room, with a comfortable couch and a single armchair next to a large coffee table. There is a small chandelier, and one floor lamp, with a wall sconce near the stairs. There is also a bureau and lots of (mostly empty) bookshelves.

Also on the first level is the eat-in kitchen, with plenty of glasses, dishes and tableware, and an adequate supply of pots and pans. There is an automatic espresso maker, but no tea kettle. There is a microwave, but no toaster. The cooking surfaces are gas; the oven is electric. There is a double sink for washing up, with a drying rack inside one of the cabinets. The heating control is in the living room, and the apartment was quite comfortable despite some frosty weather outside (in January).

On the second level are two good-sized bedrooms and the bathroom. One bedroom has a large double bed, the other has two twin beds. All beds were comfortable. There are extra blankets, but there are no extra pillows. There were some drawers and a wardrobe, but no chairs, in the bedrooms. The bathroom has marble floor and partially marbled walls, a tub with hand shower, a pedestal sink, with mirror, a toilet, and bidet. Towels are hung on the radiator (which can hold several towels), but there are no other towel hooks or bars. There are also no shelves in the bathroom; the toilet paper has to be kept on the toilet tank or on the floor, as there was no holder for it.

We were let in by a caretaker lady who only spoke italian, but she turned up exactly at the appointed hour and still managed to explain things fairly well. Inside, there were some written instructions/suggestions in italian and french, but none in english. However the owner, who was out of the country, was very responsive to our questions via VRBO. There is a cable television and good wifi, and there is also a laundry area elsewhere on the premises. These were essential for our stay of over a week. One good restaurant is in walking distance.

All in all we had a pleasant experience and would certainly come again

Séjour près de Varèse

  • 5 of 5

Très bien reçu par les propriétaires. L'appartement au 1er étage est spacieux et arrangé avec beaucoup de goût et silencieux. La situation permet de se rendre à pas mal d'endroits au nord de Milan, notamment Côme etc. On recommande cette maison.

Bon séjour

  • 4 of 5

Nous avons passé une semaine agréable de vacances à Montonate.

Le logement est un appartement rénové dans une vieille bâtisse, mais pas de souci, il y a tout le confort moderne. Comme c'est une ancienne demeure, il n'y fait pas trop chaud malgré la chaleur extérieure.

Il y a tout le confort nécessaire (place de parking, télé, lit de bonne qualité, machine à laver, cuisine équipée). Il faudrait juste qu'il y ait plus d'ustensiles de cuisine (plus de couverts, plus de casseroles, des spatules, des plats adaptés pour le four), pour ne pas passer son temps à faire la vaisselle.

C'est en tout cas un bon endroit pour visiter les lacs d'Italie du Nord (lac majeur et d'Orta) ainsi que Milan.
