I stayed for 6 nights at this property with 2 friends. It is a huge flat that allowed all of us to have our own bed. The bedrooms and bathrooms are clean, modern and quite nice - allowing a bath as well as shower. The kitchen is small, but quite adequate for the meals we prepared there.The grounds and balcony, off the main living area, overlook some of the most beautiful vantage points of this stunning area. It was tranquil and romantic - with church bells quietly chiming in the background. We had a rental car to go to Lake Como and various towns on the lake.There are close supermarkets accessible by car. Right outside the gate of the property was a lovely restaurant - Italia. I would strongly suggest. The owner of the property was away, but his representative, Francesco, showed us everything we needed to know about the property and immediate area. I can not overstate how lovely he was: very pleasant, accommodating, gentle, kind and modest. He was attentive to our every need and made the experience even more gratifying. A true gentleman. We would return anytime!
We highly recommend staying at Poggio Verde. The home is spacious and beautiful, with every amenity we needed for a restful stay. The secluded hilltop setting offered a stunning view of the surrounding area, a large private patio, grill, and gazebo, and a large pool. We did our grocery shopping in the town 5 minutes away and went out for gelato to two different shops in nearby towns. We ventured out during the days about one hour in every direction for hikes, lakes, “canyoning”, castles, and Milan, not to mention the beautiful drives along the way. Gretchen and her staff were so attentive and personal, offering tips and suggestions for every aspect of our stay.
