cosy, original rustico, as described, situated in nice chestnut forest. access to house is quite steep, last 50m of road is gravel, you have to carry all luggage up, unless you come by 4x4.
surrounding is calm, good privacy in spite of apartments nearby. house is newly renovated, still retaining it's original charm and well maintained. we liked details like the stone sinks in kitchen and bath. main room with galleria, even better than on pictures. thick stone walls will leave it cool inside even when hot in summer. detailed instructions are provided by owner and good documentation on local tours and culture, good service and housekeeping.
amenities are good, enough space for two or more. kitchen is small but ok for occasional cooking. what we missed were simple wine glasses in the kitchen and we would have liked a double bed on the gallery instead of the retractable one, so we had to use the bed-sofa in the living room.
we liked to do trips with our bikes, hiking in the forest and sailing on lake como.
I rented this brand new house in Montemezzo in August 2010 and it turned out to be far bejond my expectations. The hosue was clean, well furnished and with all necessary appiances for a confortable stay, very different from the average holiday house you can rent in this area. It's located up on the hill, 5-minute walk from the main road. It's an ideal place for families with children, but also for those peole who love to be in the nature. It's only five/ten minutes by car from to the lake shore where all sports facilities can be found. The owner is friendly and available to supply all information about the surroundings that he knows very, very well. I found very useful the "welcome package" with all information about the area prepared by the owner for his guests. I reccommend this place to all my friends and what's more the price/qualty ratio is excellent. Francesca
