The space

Once a barn, THE BOOK NEST was adapted for housing ten years ago and completely refurbished this year to guarantee our hosts the essential comfort. Being the cottage an annex not far from our main house, from mid-June to mid-September you’ll have exclusive free access to the swimming pool , and for the whole of the year to the surrounding garden with the enclosed private parking. Due to the location and the old structure, unfortunately at the moment we can’t host people with mobility problems.

The cottage has been named after books as it hosts a big part of our library, but for one reason more : it’s the ideal place for concentrate in reading or in studying. If you need a natural environment to stay on your own, to have your thoughts flow, to write for work or pleasure or just rest bathing in the sun over the patio, THE BOOK NEST will fit you perfectly with its privacy. It’s the ideal resort for a couple just as for a single .

Guest access

Set at the edge of a wood overlooking the Perlana brook ravine-style valley in a secluded area on the outskirts of Lenno, offering a dramatic glimpse of Como Lake, THE BOOK NEST is a 70 sq. meters, single-floor detached house: a matrimonial bedroom, a living room plus a kitchenette with limited cooking devices (microwave-oven and coffee-machine), and a bathroom with bathtub and hairdryer. Washing machine and ironing are available on request .The cottage is provided with autonomous heating and air conditioning.

As the cottage is a retreat place, we didnt’ provide any TV, just a basic amplifier where you can plug in your Ipod with your favorite music, indeed Wi-Fi connection is available only at the upper garden. If you are a mover and craving for excursions, THE BOOK NEST is the ideal starting point for trips in the wonderful neighborhood of Tremezzina, the central region of Como Lake: Lenno city center with the ferry service is within a fifteen minute walk, the wonderful Villa Balbianello no more than thirty minutes. We will be pleased to give you all the advices to enjoy at the best your holidays. No dogs allowed, smoke is permitted outside and throughout the garden.
