First floor apartment for up to 6, at a short drive from the western shores of lake Como,
convenient for quiet breaks away,
spacious for families , with balconies and own parking space.
Ideal base for hikers and road cyclists with an active holiday in mind.
The apartment is on the top floor of a detached house in the rural village of Schignano Intelvi, visible on Streetview. Although it is not isolated, there is a calm and rural feel around, with trees, fields and woods in sight. From the garden and the balcony there are views into the valley and the solitary mountain of San Zeno, a characteristic landmark in the valley.
The bedrooms have a spacious balcony, where guests can also spend some time outdoor after a busy day, relaxing or soaking in the sunshine.
The apartment is on the main road and it is accessible through an outdoor staircase. A car is essential to visit the lake and surroundings without restrictions of time, distance and location. The apartment is only at a short 10 to 15 minutes driving distance from the lakeshores.
The garden has a driveway with plenty of room for parking within the house gates. There is also access to the garage under the apartment where cyclist can safely store their bikes only.
Interaction with guests
During their stay, guests can contact me at any time on the number provided or through e-mail.
Other things to note
The apartment is on the first floor and has its own private access and parking. The location requires that the guests drive their own car as public transport is limited.
A quiet young couple lives on the ground floor apartment and will be happy to answer any questions. The 2 apartments are completely independent and both have parking space on the drive.
The garden around the house is unfurnished but provides ample space for children play.
The field at the bottom of the house is used for harvesting hay so the grass is grown to a high length and is only cut at certain times in the summer. Children are welcome to play on the field if at the time of your stay the grass has just been cut. The field will not be available otherwise.
Guests are welcome and I hope that they have a pleasant stay in the apartment. Apart from leaving the normal traces of everyday living, my only request is that you leave the flat as you found it and that you report any accidental damage to me and the care taker.
There is a friendly young couple living on the ground floor, please show consideration.
Please note that the grass on the field at the bottom of the garden is not always kept short as it is grown for hay harvesting. There is anyway enough room around the house for children to play.

I was born and grew up in Schignano, I now live away but often return to visit!
I would like to share some of my feeling about lake Como and its surroundings. The landscape is stunning and I admire the way that those ancient villages complement and even enhance the landscape. They were built long ago with so much love and respect for the surroundings that the feelings linger through the ancient streets.
Hope you can enjoy the same experience as you wander around the lake sights!
Enjoy your holiday!
Sono nata e cresciuta vicino al lago di Como, ora abito lontano ma ci ritorno spesso a visitare sia gente che posti.
Se state leggendo queste righe, sará perché anche voi siete interessati a fare un giro in questi luoghi.
Sicuramente sono posti dai paesaggi affascinanti. Per quella sensazione in piú, il consiglio da parte mia é di camminare nei paesi e cercare quei particolari nascosti che ognuno trova in angoli diversi e che non sono in esposizione, ma sono la testimonianza di un tempo quando i loro abitanti ci vivevano in armonia col paesaggio e le sue risorse, cosí come forse a volte ci sognamo di vivere noi!
