A lovely quiet setting
This is a lovely property up a quiet track (literally!). It is based in a small group of other rental properties, which whilst we were there were mainly used at weekends. It was very quiet though even when the other families were there. It is well equipped. We were greeted by the owner in Colico & taken to the house as it is a little off the beaten track. We were shown round the property & given a small welcome basket. There were plenty of the general provisions which can be difficult to buy in small quantities plus some additions such as pasta, tea, coffee. The house was very clean and well prepared. Whilst this farmhouse doesn't boast air conditioning, it is kept cool by the use of shutters. It has two outside sitting areas which capture the sun all day and also have some areas of sun protection. It has after a short walk a very quiet beach (not suitable for someone who is limited in their walking), which allows you to watch the setting sun over the Alps on the opposite side of the lake in the evening. The owner who says he doesn't speak English, actually does get by very well and checked on us a couple of times, both by email and short visits without being intrusive. Whilst it is a little drive to Piona and Colico, it is lovely, quiet and restful, we would return.
