fabulous location, beautifully appointed apartment
The apartment is exactly as described in this listing. Spacious, nicely appointed with comfortable furniture and spotlessly clean. The small kitchen was well equipped and consideration had even been given to provide washing up liquid.
Roberta and Luigi met us on our arrival to show us around the apartment. We had a small problem with the bed linen not fitting the bed which was addressed quickly. Roberta is an attentive and generous host.
Located around 500mtrs above the lake amongst the terraced olive groves and small-holdings it is a rural retreat with stunning views from the balcony and the gardens. The road leading up to the apartment is a bit hairy the first time, as the bends are very tight, but after a few tries we were confidently whizzing up and down! We had mild evenings and ate our dinners on the balcony or at one of the tables in the gardens every night, enjoying the views, the wildlife and the glorious scent of jasmine on the breeze.
The apartment's location on the east side of the lake is absolutely perfect for exploring the area. We would recommend a trip to Castello Di Vezio on the hillside above Verenna, hiring a motorboat for a private trip around the lake from Luca at Rent a Boat in Lierna, a drive up to Esino Lario to follow the well signposted paths for a gentle (or if you prefer, strenuous) walk around the mountainside and a trip to Gravedona to try some of the best gelato at La Carapina on the promanade. We also drove to St Moritz, but Roberta told us it is possible to take the train from Bellano which might be more relaxing!
Useful tips: the Iperal supermarket at Calico is the best in the area (better than the busy supermarkets in Milan).
vue imprenable sur le lac
endroit sympathique avec une vue surplombant le lac et ses petits villages aux façades chaudes colorés.
loin du bruit et du monde, un petit nid magique pour se ressourcer.
attention, la route est raide et étroite pour y accéder !
Great View/Tolle Aussicht
Wir waren mit unserem zweijährigen Sohn bei Roberta und Luigi, die uns sehr herzlich empfangen haben. Die Unterkunft ist sehr sauber und genauso wie beschrieben. Die (wie in weiteren Bewertungen beschriebene) etwas steile, also typisch italienische Anfahrt zur Unterkunft ist für ungeübte, ängstliche Autofahrer mit tiefer gelegten, riesengroßem Auto keine Option. Wer aber die Herausforderung annimmt, wird mit einem tollen Blick auf den See und sehr netten Gastgebern belohnt. Immer wieder gerne!
So nice to welcome you! Thanks for sharing the lake of Como…"from point of view". Roberta and Luigi
Stunning house in the middle of a wonderful landscape!
We had the most wonderful time at lovely Borgo Verginate. Roberta welcomed us with a bottle of sparkling wine and all the information we needed for our stay. Later she even knocked at our door for bringing us two slices of delicious homemade birthdaycake, which was just too kind. Our apartment was a dream come true. It was all tidy and clean and decorated with love. We enjoyed the lake view from our balcony everyday while breakfast or dinner. The lake is also the first thing you see when waking up in your bed, which is amazing. There are five fireplaces in the beautiful garden you can use whenever you want to. Even in September it's warm enough at the lake to relax and enjoy the view there, with no sound than the sound of nature. Starting right at the house we hiked a part of the famous sentiero del viandante up to Camaggiore, which we highly recommend if you're into hiking and seeing old little mountain villages. The other days we visited some towns and villages nearby such as Bellano, Como, Lecco and the beautiful – but kind of touristic – Varenna. If you walk like ten minutes down the house, you'll find a beautiful little stonebeach, where you can relax and dive into the clear water of lake como – even at the end of september. So all in all we would highly highly recommend Borgo Verginate to everyone who loves to spend their holidays at a unique, peaceful and heartwarming place, that will put a smile on your face everytime you wake up.
Thank you Michelle and Moritz for you kind review , you sharded our idea of holiday at lake Como, hope to welcome you again in the future.

The house is located in a very small hamlet on the trekking trail Sentiero del Viandante about 5 minutes drive from Bellano on the east shore of the lake Como. We suggest to vist the famous Orrido Gorge, the Castel of Vezio and the lovely Varenna, the ancient Piona Abbey. By boat you can reach Villa Carlotta and Tremezzo, Menaggio and Bellagio.
