Welcome to our dream home in Italy

In 2007 we happened to chance on an old farmhouse in the 17th century hamlet of Belmonte, a very authentic, picturesque place on the hills overlooking Lake Como. The house is located in front of the village and has a magnificent view over Lake Como, the Alps and the lovely village of St.Anna. Behind the house are a maze of alleyways and stone stairs, true Italian rusticity!

The house had just been refurbished. We so fell in love with the place that we ended up buying it. The first apartment we acquired is very child-friendly and located on the second floor with the front facing the village, providing the best view of the entire building and in 2011, we also bought the terraced apartment on top of the previous apartment. This makes it ideal to rent together and go away on holidays with family and friends. You have the privacy of the fully equipped, individual apartments yet be together on holidays. Across the street is a new swimming pool, heated with environmentally friendly solar panels, overlooking gorgeous Lake Como. The pool is only for residents of the building, so you usually have it all for yourself!.

The surrounding area is beautiful and very popular since George Clooney called it the most beautiful place in the world! Belmonte, the hamlet where we are located is on the hills of Pianello del Lario, which only recently opened up for tourism and is thus very authentic. You can visit pretty villages nearby just walking, and in the neighborhood there are possibilities to hike and visit waterfalls, quiet valleys, mountain chapels, churches and agri-turismo restaurants tucked away in the hillside. There are good, authentic pizza / pasta eateries and winebars in the neighborhood, all very reasonably priced!

Our house is also available outside the main holiday season, for long weekends and for winter sports. Budget flights with Transavia and Ryanair get you to Orio al Serio (Milan / Bergamo), Rental Cars are available at the airport. A scenic drive of just over an hour along Lake Como gets you into the apartment.
