The lovely apartment is located in the historical center of Brienno, the beautiful and famous Como Lake. The property where is located has been converted from an old mill and finely restored by a well-known architect.

The apartment is suitable by up to 4 guests and is divided as follows. Ground floor: spacious living room with fireplace and sofa (can become a double bed) and dining room with a large table, terrace overlooking the lake with stunning view, furnished with table and chairs, fully equipped independent kitchen, large bathroom with window. The master bedroom is on a nice mezzanine.

You'll love the romantic location and the peace that you'll breath looking from the terrace. The view the seventeenth-century church on the left side of the house is unforgettable.

There is an elevator in the building.

The atmosphere in the village is quiet and with no traffic at all.

A holiday of relaxation, connected with nature!

By the way, a few steps from the apartment, you can find a "botanical trail" with wonderful spots of the lake. At 200 m from the house there is an awarded public park overlooking lake, with solarium and swimming facilities.

Brienno is a fascinating little village with just 400 inhabitants, dating from the year 1000. It is located on the west bank of the lake, 10 km from Como, about 50 km from Milan and Malpensa Intercontinental Airport, 30 km from Lugano, 15 km from the Casino of Campione d'Italia. Places of interest nearby are: Cernobbio, with its famous "Villa d'Este", Villa Balbianello in Lenno, Villa Carlotta in Tremezzo, Menaggio with Villa Vigoni Stern, Bellagio with Villa Melzi d'Eril and the Rockefeller Foundation, as well as countless amazing places that have made Lake Como a perfect destination of poets, artists and writers along with actors, directors, designers and stylists from all over the world.

The country is served by a bus line that connects it to all areas of the province.

Don't miss the boat trip, which departs every Sunday morning from the jetty just out of your door and comes back in the evening, after sailing all over the lake.

A stone's throw from the apartment, just over the road, we suggest a nice pizzeria (take-away, if you want), with a beautiful panoramic terrace. At 10 minutes from the village there is a big supermarket and a shopping center, with a wide selection products.

"lovely apartment, excellent service and highly recommended"

Lovely apartment as advertised with great and timely communication from the owner. There was a contact waiting to let us in and we spoke before we left to confirm. Even though we had to leave at 6am they were on time to see us out and we had no trouble checking in or out or with deposit.
The view was lovely and we thoroughly recommended going for a walk around the village to see the real sights as you can't see them from the road through. Cobbled alleyways and quintesential italian life is tucked away and at the end of the village is a small Lido. Parking was fine for our hire car but if it was any busier you might have to park a short distance. We were 15 minutes from Como and 5 from Argeno, 10 from Lenno where there is a supermarket and petrol station.
The pizza restaurant opposite was awesome with fantastic pizzas freshly made in front of you.
Internet worked fine and meant we found a place in Argegno to rent a boat for the day which we would definitely recommended to see the real sites. Head to Mennagio for a great market on Saturday, and Argegno also has a few lovely restaurants along with a fernacula railway for a few euros. After that we drove up into the hills for a good few km and came out right at the top for some immense views and a little alpine refuge for good food and a lunch time glass of vino.
We also highly recommend a cooking course we found with chef Moreno at Ristorante Il Caminetto (found via trip advisor). They collected us from Varenna port and took us back after a great day of cooking and local wine.
One thing to add, the bed is up on a mezzanine and probably not suitable for those less mobile but otherwise if you're looking for a quaint, quiet and characterful stay then this was great. Note the bell tower next to the property is active so expect a wake up call at 7 but all part of the character! Also,the shower was great with plenty of hot water on tap!
