fabulous location, beautifully appointed apartment

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is exactly as described in this listing. Spacious, nicely appointed with comfortable furniture and spotlessly clean. The small kitchen was well equipped and consideration had even been given to provide washing up liquid.

Roberta and Luigi met us on our arrival to show us around the apartment. We had a small problem with the bed linen not fitting the bed which was addressed quickly. Roberta is an attentive and generous host.

Located around 500mtrs above the lake amongst the terraced olive groves and small-holdings it is a rural retreat with stunning views from the balcony and the gardens. The road leading up to the apartment is a bit hairy the first time, as the bends are very tight, but after a few tries we were confidently whizzing up and down! We had mild evenings and ate our dinners on the balcony or at one of the tables in the gardens every night, enjoying the views, the wildlife and the glorious scent of jasmine on the breeze.

The apartment's location on the east side of the lake is absolutely perfect for exploring the area. We would recommend a trip to Castello Di Vezio on the hillside above Verenna, hiring a motorboat for a private trip around the lake from Luca at Rent a Boat in Lierna, a drive up to Esino Lario to follow the well signposted paths for a gentle (or if you prefer, strenuous) walk around the mountainside and a trip to Gravedona to try some of the best gelato at La Carapina on the promanade. We also drove to St Moritz, but Roberta told us it is possible to take the train from Bellano which might be more relaxing!

Useful tips: the Iperal supermarket at Calico is the best in the area (better than the busy supermarkets in Milan).

Vistas maravillosas del lago, paz y tranquilidad!

  • 5 of 5

Las vistas desde este lugar son mejores que en las fotos, es un lugar idilico rodeado de jardines preciosos y vistas espectaculares de las montaña y el lago. Atardecederes preciosos. Junto a rutas de senderismo increibles y caminos de montaña. Necesesario venir con coche. El camino para llegar a la casa tiene una pendiente muy fuerte y es de tierra y piedras, venir con un buen coche, es una buena aventura subir aqui.

Stunning house in the middle of a wonderful landscape!

  • 5 of 5

We had the most wonderful time at lovely Borgo Verginate. Roberta welcomed us with a bottle of sparkling wine and all the information we needed for our stay. Later she even knocked at our door for bringing us two slices of delicious homemade birthdaycake, which was just too kind. Our apartment was a dream come true. It was all tidy and clean and decorated with love. We enjoyed the lake view from our balcony everyday while breakfast or dinner. The lake is also the first thing you see when waking up in your bed, which is amazing. There are five fireplaces in the beautiful garden you can use whenever you want to. Even in September it's warm enough at the lake to relax and enjoy the view there, with no sound than the sound of nature. Starting right at the house we hiked a part of the famous sentiero del viandante up to Camaggiore, which we highly recommend if you're into hiking and seeing old little mountain villages. The other days we visited some towns and villages nearby such as Bellano, Como, Lecco and the beautiful – but kind of touristic – Varenna. If you walk like ten minutes down the house, you'll find a beautiful little stonebeach, where you can relax and dive into the clear water of lake como – even at the end of september. So all in all we would highly highly recommend Borgo Verginate to everyone who loves to spend their holidays at a unique, peaceful and heartwarming place, that will put a smile on your face everytime you wake up.

Toller Blick...

  • 5 of 5

Wunderschöner Blick auf den See, sehr nette Vermieter, tolle Wohnung.

Nur die Zufahrt teils auf Schotterwegen im Zickzack den Berg hinauf ist etwas mühsam :)

Atemraubende Anfahrt zum atemraubenden Blick

  • 5 of 5

In Borgo Verginate fanden wir eine Ferienwohnung vor, in der wir uns sofort wohl fühlten: helle Räume, modern, funktional und geschmackvoll (ohne überflüssigen Tand) eingerichtet. Auch der Außenbereich ist liebevoll gestaltet und bietet diverse kleine Sitzgruppen, so dass der überwältigende Blick auf den See aus verschiedenen Perspektiven genossen werden kann.

Zu betonen ist auch das Engagement der Besitzer, die eine naturnahe Ferienanlage geschaffen haben, sich viel einfallen lassen und sehr bemühen, ihren Gästen einen erholsamen Urlaub zu ermöglichen.

Nicht unerwähnt sollte aber auch bleiben, dass es sowohl zu Fuß von den nächsten Ortschaften als auch mit dem Auto nicht ganz ohne Anstrengungen ist, dieses kleine Paradies zu erreichen. Nach anfänglichem Zögern haben wir es dann aber doch geschafft, unser 50 Jahre altes Coupé direkt vor dem Haus zu parken, mussten aber auch miterleben das ein Feriengast sich und/oder seinem Auto diese Anfahrt nicht zutraute. Aber auch in diesem Fall erwiesen sich unsere Gastgeber als Ansprechpartner, die eine gute Lösung für dieses Problem fanden.

Gerne empfehlen wir die Ferienanlage an Freunde und Bekannte weiter.

impecable !

  • 5 of 5

Merci à Roberta et Luigi pour cette excellente semaine à Borgo Verginate !

- les appartements ont une superbe vue et sont très agréables

- Borgo verginate est très bien situé, loin du monde, près de sentiers de randonné et toutefois proche du lac et des ferry

- Les hôtes sont très gentils et donnent de bons conseils

- Roberta avait même ajouté un lit et une chaise de bébé

Bref, nous avons passé un très bon moment.

The house is located in a very small hamlet on the trekking trail Sentiero del Viandante about 5 minutes drive from Bellano on the east shore of the lake Como. We suggest to vist the famous Orrido Gorge, the Castel of Vezio and the lovely Varenna, the ancient Piona Abbey. By boat you can reach Villa Carlotta and Tremezzo, Menaggio and Bellagio.
