The house is located in the hillside village of Gallio, surrounded by traditional, rustic Italian houses and stunning scenery. This authentic, mountain village is one of the most beautiful on Lake Como and will undoubtedly leave you with unforgettable memories. Due to its hillside location, its worth mentioning that from the main road, you will need to walk through stone steps, 100 meters from the house. The location is very peaceful and is an ideal place for a very relaxed holiday.
We would like to point out that the two well kept bathrooms are accessed on the lounge terrace and off the shared bedroom terrace.

The Lombardy region
The Italian Lakes are a little slice of paradise. Elegant ribbons of blue water stretch out ahead, folded into the sun-baked foothills, with a spectacular back drop of the snow-capped Alps.
Lake Como offers hidden treasures just waiting for the visitor to discover them: charming corners forgotten by time, lakeside villages where nothing seems to have changed for centuries.
It is steeped in history with an immense collection of churches, architectural masterpieces and works of art covering the centuries. The lake is situated in a basin surrounded by wooded mountains, and offers an extremely varied landscape, with its' shores featuring a succession of pastures, and woods as well as harsh and impressive rock formations.
All this alongside elegant, lakeside villas with sub-tropical gardens, which provide a haven of peace and tranquillity and chic resorts such as Varenna, Bellagio, Menaggio and Como itself.
Warming, in spriing and graced with natural beauty, the lakes are still a place to draw breath and wonder. Lake Como, oriented north-south, ringed by characterful old villages often wedged onto narrow beaches between rugged cliffs and water. Those classic lake images of flower strewn balconies, Baroque gardens and splendid waterside villas can be found here in abundance. Dotted around and between the lakes are some of Italy's finest art cities, such as Milan, Verona & Bergamo.
The most romantic and picturesque villages on the lake are Santa Maria Rezzonico, Varenna (15 min by ferry) & Bellagio (8 min by ferry), Lenno (visit Villa Balbianello, location for 007's Casino Royale as well as Villa Gaeta, right here in Menaggio) & Laglio (where George Clooney owns Villa Oleandra).

A visiter to Rezzonico said "During our seven day visit to Lake Como we explored more than a dozen towns and climbed a hundred cobble stone walkways. But without question a secluded lane in Rezzonico stands out as the quintessential Lago di Como path. Entirely residential except for the Ristorante Lauro located about a third of the way down, the stone work of the walls and the patina of the cobbles exhibited the kind of character that only time can create and the love of people who live there can maintain."
Rezzonico is one of the most charming villages on Lake Como. A castle right on the water side dominates the village, it has secluded beaches which you can only reach by foot or by boat, and a long bay covered with gravel grass. The lake is clear and clean good for swimming, sailing, surfing, etc. Rezzonico has a few restaurants, a small supermarket, bank & pharmacy. For more shopping, Menaggio is 5 km away and has a lovely lakeside promenade, charming central piazza edged with cosy cafe's. From the ferry dock, you can catch the passenger boat which cris crosses the lake.
There is a castle on the lake side of Rezzonico which dominates the village, that was built by Pope Clements XIII family in the XIV century. Many years ago, wealthy Milanese families used to use this location as their main summer retreat, which is testament to the beauty of the area.
Rezzonico is a really delightful little village with winding narrow cobbled streets, in between the ancient houses with their elegant portals and portico's, where fishermen spread out and repair their nets. There are a few restaurants, a small supermarket, bank and a pharmacy. A small market is held on a Wednesday, every two weeks, which makes for a great atmosphere. There are numerous picturesque spots and secluded beaches along the shoreline, ideal for those family picnics.
There are many facilities for sporting enthusiasts in the surrounding area including, sailing, swimming, fishing, skiing, windsurfing, golf, walking and climbing. For the less energetic, the area has beautiful Villas to visit and wonderful gardens, abundant with magnificent flowers and shrubs.
