House with great Lake Como views and swimming pool
One of two cosy, traditional style houses on the mountain side overlooking Lake Como. This larger house of the two, can be rented out individually. Otherwise if you have a larger group of friends & family, please see our other listing for Monte Accogliente Piena.
Situated in a beautiful Nature Reserve with private access - approximately 3km from the village of Plesio, which has a store for basic essentials & some 8km above Menaggio which provides all your needs.
The property gives access to a great number of scenic mountain walks with direct access to the Menaggio Rifugio, some 1.5hrs walk. Alternatively during the winter months there is also the option to travel to the various ski resorts: Madesimo & St Moritz, which are both approx 1.5hrs away.
Given the property's mountainside location, and being situated in a wooded nature reserve access is via a steep & winding track for approx 1 mile, the main part is tarmac & an unmade rocky section for the last section (approx 300m). It is advisable therefore to arrive during daylight hours to be able to fully familiarise yourself with the roadway- certainly not suitable for inexperienced drivers.
Please note - when staying at the Monte Accogliente 1 property, then the other smaller property will not be occupied.
Accommodation - size 120sqm - sleeping 6 people in 3 bedrooms & 1 bathroom
This house sleeps up to 6 people in three bedrooms. There is a reverse level open plan living area with a cosy wood burning stove, a complete entertainment system (SAT TV, DVD/CD player with 5.1 surround sound), kitchen and dining area all on the first floor which takes full advantage of the spectacular lake & mountain views.
On the ground floor there are two double bedrooms, a third bedroom with bunk beds and a bathroom with a shower. To the side is an open terrace, ideal for 'al fresco' dining & access to the garden & pool. Enjoy a barbeque grill in the big garden whilst the private swimming pool (7.5m x 4m) is at the back of the house.
The small historic village of Plesio is 3km away from the property and has a grocery shop, bar, tobacconist, newspaper shop, post office, bank (open only some days during the week), restaurants and pizzeria, beauty centre, hairdresser and bus stop. A small market every 2 weeks on Thursday mornings.
Plesio sits 600m high above the beautiful waters of Lake Como in the Italian Alps and well known above all for it spring water "Chiarella" here bottled and for various mountain walks. From this area, you can wander the mountains to find historical churches or hike on Mount Grona, or drive the 10 minutes down to Menaggio on the Lake, or on to Como, the city at the end of the main arm of the 2 pronged lake, 40 minutes by car. Beautiful Bellagio is a short ferry ride away across the water, and everywhere you look is scenery that has always bedazzled tourists.

The weekend was super relaxed. The cottages are very nice and clean. The approach is adventurous but the view is fantastic. Gladly again! The pool could use a better pump as it is very close to the trees. But that's really the only criticism of the house. We have really booked a lot of holiday homes, but your company is by far the best organized! Great service, clearly great instructions on how to get to the house. Key pick-up clear, even when the shop is over. Simply great !!
Very nice location, and beautiful villas with a very nice view. Be careful to get there though, the ultimate road leading to the villa are rather tricky, better have a jeep or a 4x4. But once you get there, it's very peaceful and the view is very nice. The villas are well equipped.
