The house is located in the charming hamlet of Verginate, a small old village half hill overlooking the lake of Como and one hour drive from Milan; It consists of 5 new apartments with an amazing view streching from Menaggio and Dervio to Bellagio. Every apartment has its private entrance, its own table outdoor for 'alfresco dining' and BBQ, parking in front of the house; a nice terraced garden overlooking the lake; Relax in the evening enjoying the view of the lights of the villages lake side ....
Harmony and nature without missing all the attractions that the Alpine Region, Milan and Bergamo offer. The house is just on the famous walking trail the 'Path of the Wanderer' , the old mule track running along the East cost of the Como lake and ideally located for strolling in the woods nearby.
In the town of Bellano, a short drive away, you can find supermarkets, shops, restaurants and cafe' bar , beach and swimming-pool, a new marina, sailing-club, railway station. The lovely Varenna is 6 km and from there you can take the ferry and reach Bellagio and Menaggio.
A mountain road steep and narrow in some places to reach the house; at the moment, there are 50 mt of no asphalted road. No spider no trolley. Take note that in google maps our house seems to be overlooking the motorway Milan - Colico while this runs in a tunnel.
Borgo Verginate is a passion for us ! We are two families as owners and we finished in 2010 to rebuild completly the old house; We tried to keep the ancient charme using some of the old stones covering the walls. What remains the same is the amazing lake view and we wish you to enjoy this magic location bringing home the feelings it gives us. Roberta, Luigi, Mauro e Mosè

First of all - if you are either scared of steep, narrow, curvy, partly unfinished roads, or a fan of stiletto footwear, or due to some medical reason a bit walking impaired, or prefer to party through the nights in some fancy club ..... this place simply isn't for you. For everyone else - congratulations, you've found your way directly to paradise.
The drive uphill is fun, in both sarcastic and also true ways. It is a very steep road, but just wait until you arrive uphill and get the first glance of Borgo Verginate, you will be rewarded for it!
The place is magic. The owners are incredibly friendly, helpful, hospitable people who really LIVE their job. They make sure all the time that you are having everything you need, and are contactable via mobile in any case.
Which you probably won't need to do, because everything was meticulously clean, in great shape, and even for me as a dedicated hobby cook the kitchen was very well equipped, it even had a gas hob. The only thing that was missing was an oven, but there was a microwave that served lots of functions.
The place is suitable for 2 people, with options for 4, but I'd rather be on my own as a couple. It not only features a balconcy where you can relax and enjoy a majestic panorama view of Lake Como, no, it also has a private terrace where you can enjoy private dining and a BBQ.
Everything was just as described, probably even better. Whatever you want for a private, secluded, beautiful holiday where you can relax, recreate, recharge your batteries, you will find it at Borgo Verginate. I was completely and utterly at ease with everything, and the stress just melts away within minutes of enjoying that view.
Highly recommended, we will be back 1-2 a year!
From Roberta & Mauro's organisational help (quick email responses) to a a tasteful interior furnishing and a fully equipped kitchen: a great holiday place. Apt. is new and clean. None of the photos is a fake - it really looks like that. Two verandas and a terrace style garden (and herbs growing there like rosemary) can be used. Only thing to get used to: the steep serpentine road. Enjoy your holiday!
Die Bilder sprechen eigentlich schon für sich: Die Ferienwohnungen Borgo Verginate bieten einen atemberaubenden Blick über den Comer-See. Die Wohnungen sind komplett neu eingerichtet, es fehlt an nichts. Ideal wenn man sich mal eben was zu Essen machen möchte und den Sonnenuntergang auf den Balkonen geniessen möchte...
Ein wenig gewöhnungsberftig ist die Fahrt hoch hinauf nach Borgo Verginate. Ein paar Serpentinen, ein paar Meter geschotterter Weg, recht steil, aber wenn man nicht gerade einen Sportwagen hat, kein Problem...
Die Nachbarn und die Vermieter sind Super-Nett, wir werden wieder kommen!

Wir hatten die Ferienwohnung für eine Woche im September gemietet und waren wirklich begeistert!!! Eine hübsch eingerichtete Wohnung, sehr gut ausgestattet mit einem traumhaften Blick auf den See und die umliegenden Berge. Die Anfahrt ist zugegebener Maßen etwas abenteuerlich und sicher nichts für Ängstliche. Wir sind sehr viel gewandert und haben es auch genossen direkt von unserer Ferienwohnung aus loswandern zu können. Die Nähe zum Fährhafen Varenna macht den Standort zu einem idealen Ausgangsort für Besichtigungen und Wandern. Nachmittags und Abends haben wir gerne den Garten bzw. die Terrassen genutzt, später auch den hübschen Balkon. Es hat so viel Spaß gemacht, draußen zu frühstücken oder Abend zu essen, die Lichter am gegenüberliegenden Ufern angehen zu sehen. Wir haben uns rundum wohl gefühlt und können diese Ferienwohnung nur weiterempfehlen!!!
I was there with my girlfriend for one week. Very nice and clean appartment and friendly lessor. The apparment is very good equipped with great interior. The only drawback is the road to the apparment - there is only a earth road (about 50 meters long) to the domicile. We have been parking by the paved road - that's about 500 meters to the appartment (and many stairways). It's paid off when you enjoy the great view over the lake.
We can only recommend it - here you find a good price-service ratio.
The house is Frazione Verginate, an ancient 'borgo' dating the 19th century on half hill 2 km away from the center
of Bellano on the east shore of the Lake of Como. Stunning view from the house on the lake from Menaggio to
Bellagio and Dervio. Strolls in the woods directly from the house, 200 mt away the famous ancient path 'Sentiero del Viandante' also wiht professional mountain guides.
In Bellano there is a brand new marina, a sailing club, beach and public swimming pool along the lake. Restaurants and bars, shops. Public boats for tours on the lake. Ferry boat in the lovely Varenna 5 km. Railway station. Hospital
A mountain road, steep in some places, to reach the house. At present there are 50 mt no aphalted road.
no spider, no trolly.
