  • Car advised

Little apartment at the first floor of a medieval tower, in the heart of Breglia: a small quaint village over Menaggio.

it has double bed, modern fireplace, tv,

full equipped kitchen (gas, microwave, oven, refrigerator, kettle, toaster). Bathroom with shower, hairdryer. Iron and ironing board. Maps and tourist info in different languages.

Quiet, comfortable base to explore the area, the village is not affected by tourism but at few minutes by car from the most famous lake places as Bellagio. The village offers beautiful views, green woods for a refreshingly peaceful and restorative stay. Walking through the village you will discover picturesque corners of old, like the old stone fountains, where the water is still good to drink.

Good place for keen walkers: from Breglia start numerous hiking for all levels of difficulty. Some routes slide into the woods and reach old lake villages, others rising on mountain above the town, with stunning views of Lake Como, Lake Lugano and the Alps

In this small village people are friendly, you can feel the atmosphere of yesteryear Italy. The tower is in the oldest part of the village, its walls have a thousand years, the stones of its facade reveal ancient windows and massive blocks; next there was a convent of monks builted in the 15th century. In the apartment is visible a big beam done with a chestnut tree, and a narrow passage which communicated with the surrounding buildings, now used for storage.

Wi-Fi is available by the local bar - resturant, at 100 meters from the tower, where is possible to have breakfast service / lunch / dinner.

Breglia is medieval, streets are pedestrian only (it saves a great peace inside the village): a big free public parking without time limits is at 80 metres from the tower. There are cobbled stone streets from the parking to the tower: not suitable for those with walking problems.

"Mittelalterliches Dorf"

Das Appartement ist in einem alten Turm und mit allem notwendigen ausgestattet, was man zu zweit braucht. Es gibt auch einen gemütlichen, automatischen Holzofen. Die Vermieterin Lucia ist ausgesprochen hilfsbereit und zuvorkommend. Auch die Leute sind sehr freundlich.
Die Lage der Wohnung ist in einem mittelalterlichen Kern eines ruhigen, kleinen Dorfes. Es liegt ca. 7 km oberhalb von Menaggio, einem der lebhaften Zentren am See. Das Dorf zählt zu den höchstgelegenen am Comer See. Daher ist auch wegen seiner pittoresken Lage sehr gut zu Wanderungen geeignet. Man kann zu Fuß direkt von der Wohnung zu Ausflügen aufbrechen und hat einen wunderschönen Ausblick auf den Comer und teilweise Luganer See.
Der öffentliche, kostenlose Parkplatz liegt in ca. 200 m Entfernung. Da das Dorf vollständig autofrei ist, hat es seinen mittelalterlichen Charme behalten.
Einen Laden gibt es etwas unterhalb in Ligomena.
Die Wohnung ist daher vor allem etwas für Wanderfreunde, auch wenn man mit dem Auto zu den öffentlichen Stränden in Tremezzo und Lenno fahren kann.

"Un piccolo paradiso"

Io e la mia ragazza abbiamo trascorso una splendida vacanza: il posto era perfetto per noi, a pochi minuti dal lago e direttamente sui sentieri trekking piu belli del lago di Como! L'appartamento è nuovo, molto grazioso e molto pulito, confortevole. La cucina è bene attrezzata e spaziosa tanto da permetterci di starci in due a cucinare. Parcheggiare a Breglia non è un problema: c'è sempre tanto spazio nel parcheggio dietro la chiesa. Sicuramente torneremo ancora, c'è tanto da visitare nei dintorni!!
