Elegant apartment in a classic renovated farmhouse, on 2 floors, beside a cluniac church from 1010, located in the Adda Park, close to excursions on Adda river bank, Brivio, Montevecchia, Lake of Como and Lecco, Bergamo, etc.
We chased this house for years, dealing with bureaucrats and untrustworthy intermediaries. We were among the first ones to buy on paper and go through the renovation, but then life brought us far away from here. Despite that, we hope that you can feel our love for it, through the hardwood furniture built by artisanal firms, wooden ceilings and girders on the second floor, 4 balconies, fireplace and an amazing view on the mountains to the North.
The apartment can easily host 6 people, thanks to a spacious queen size bed, 2 single beds and a cozy queen size sofa bed. If needed, we can also provide a cot for newborns or small children up to 2 years old.
The apartment has all the comforts necessary to spend a pleasant and relaxing time. The first floor is based on an open space concept. The kitchen is fully equipped, with a dishwasher, 5 burners, an electrical convection oven and a microwave oven. Those of you who are more sophisticated can use our cooking books, exotic spices and a mini blender. The living room includes a big library of books (mostly in Italian), art books and books of photography. Our collection of CDs is available for you whenever you want to enjoy some music. We also have some board games, playing cards and chess. On the second floor you can find some games for the children as well. The only rule is just to put things back where you found them.
Your physical hosts are Giorgio and Gaia, our nephew and niece. As much as we would like to meet you, it is very likely that we will be far away during your stay. Giorgio and Gaia will do whatever it takes to satisfy your needs and in case you come to Toronto please let us know and it will be a pleasure to meet you in person.
If you're worried about parking please don't: the house has its own parking lot and there are more spaces available just a few meters away.

We are sorry but pets are not allowed. Smoking in the house is also prohibited, but there's an ashtray on the balcony. Wi-fi internet is available, but limited by the Internet Service Provider to 1 GB per day between 8 am and midnight. Internet usage in excess to that and any related charges will be debited to the guest.
Apart from that, just be reasonable, use common sense and everything will be fine.
We moved to Canada in 2006 with our 2 children. We thought we were going to travel the world, but instead the world changed us and we decided to stay here.
Ci siamo trasferiti in Canada nel 2006 con i nostri 2 bimbi. Pensavamo di girare il mondo, ma il mondo ha girato noi e ci siamo fermati qui.
