Description from the owner
This charming romantic cottage, in a perfect location on a hillside overlooking the splendid Lake Como, was built from scratch just a few years ago, with original stone from the ruins of a pre-existing ancient building. Views from all windows are nothing short of stunning.
The cottage is a stand-alone building, on three levels (and a very peculiar, unique layout, whereby you can walk in directly from the first floor).
The ground floor has just a cellar/storage (and a lovely garden). The little well-groomed garden is an ideal place to sit back and relax with a glass of wine, while taking in the superb view.

Romantic charming cottage, breathtaking view
Brienno, Lombardy, Italy
Additional Location Information
The romantic cottage is located on a hillside, right above Lake Como. You will have an unparalleled view of the lake right at your feet.
Remote, very quiet.
We strongly advice renting a car at the airport (either Milan Malpensa or Linate), and driving straight to the cottage.
- get on SS336dir - 3 min (1.9 km)
- take SS336, A36 and A9/E35 direction Como. Take exit Como Nord from A9/E35 - 33 min (51.1 km)
- follow SS340 Via Regina to Brienno
The cottage is right across the street from the main Church in the heart of the village, which you will see ahead of you as soon as you turn into it from Via Regina.
You can park anywhere in the village, there are plenty of free-of-charge parking spots - please make sure to use the ones marked in white only. The yellow ones are reserved to local residents. If none are available in the main square, there are plenty more up under the tunnel - it will all make sense once you get there.
Please note that right by the "Como Nord" motorway exit, in a town called Tavernola, there is a large supermarket called BENNET. We recommend stopping there before you drive up to Brienno, to stock up on food and drinks. There is a high selection, bread quality and convenient prices. There are no local grocery stores in Brienno as such - this is your best bet in terms of ease and convenience.
