Mum and dad are the owners of this lovely barn. They were born here in Mezzegra about 60 years ago. The barn was owned by my grandfather and was a cowshed for a long time. Than it remained empty for years, until my father, once retired, decided to restore it. So my mum and dad started the renovation: my father personally worked side by side with the builders to make sure the house could become as pretty as possible. They have 1 son and 2 daughters, they splitted the house into 3 apartments. We are a friendly family, who love getting to know new people and new cultures. We love it here! We wish to start renting out this place to those who love nature and peace, to share this place and its beautiful landscape with people who will appreciate it and will enjoy it as well as we do.. so enjoy!

What a view!!
Such a beautiful location, yes the hill is a bit of a killer the first time... but so worth it for the amazing views! We loved our cosy stay at Ilaria’s place. We took our 1 year old, who was catered for perfectly, Ilaria kindly set up a cot and high chair. Check in and out were seamless, we couldn’t have asked for more.
Amazing panoramic views from this beautifully renovated barn
This place is being recommended to all our friends. WE had the most amazing time spent here high above the western shore of Lake Como. To call this a renovated barn is a disservice. It was a barn once, but now is the most charming cottage with the most amazing views I've ever seen. Each morning waking up and looking out the front door was better than the previous! My only wish was that we spent more than 3 nights here. It was a short drive to see the town of Como. Paid the extra 5 euros for the fast boat and made it to Bellagio in 10 minutes! There were some fantastic restaurants within walking distance from the cottage. Beware- the slope is relatively steep, but even an out of shape 52 y/o with bad knees didn't have any trouble. Illaria and her husband were very accommodating in giving up a ride up the steep hill later the night we arrived after dinner took longer than expected and it was very dark and didn't know our way around very well.
A lovely place with a fantastic view
Ilaria and her family are really nice and helpful hosts and we had such a nice stay! The view, the cottage and the surroundings are so beautiful and we had a great time. We can recomment this place to everyone who loves Nature, quiet surroundings and although near Lake Como! Everything was fine! Thank you for a perfect stay
Exceptional property with wonderful features that make staying here a joy.
This property is truly one of a kind. It was very clear to us that the owners have a high level of "pride of ownership", and have made this location an oasis and retreat away from the noise of locations closer to the main street. Be prepared for a climb, which, with all the great food we ate in Lake Como, was a great way to burn extra calories!
The owners are very helpful, friendly, and eager to serve. The barn is quite comfortable and cool in the summer, and we appreciated the newness of everything. Plentiful hot water for showering, a large kitchen area with every appliance we needed, and beautiful views from every window.
There are no closets, so be prepared to hang your clothes from hooks and stairway banisters, or just leave them in your suitcase. This wasn't a problem for us and added to the charm.
The property was beautiful, we will definitely be back.
The property was amazing. Beautifully set, quiet and picturesque. The owners were lovely and helpful with everything.
It was a great location to get out and about and we enjoyed the walk up from the car. It was definitely worth it for the stunning view. We would recommend it to anyone and will definitely be back!
