We are Tom, Sofie, Axel, Raf & Jack, a family of 5 Belgians who lived more than 8 years in Italy and became too Italian to be capable of saying goodbye to Italy. So we decided to buy a holidayhome at Lake Como in the Roman village Brienno to not only go back to Italy to enjoy the country, the delicious food, nice weather, beautiful nature and warm and gentle Italian friends…but also to share our passion for Italy with you! We would like to introduce you in the Italy we know, show you the bars and restaurants we love, tell you about all the things we like to do, be your guide around the neighbourhood and visit the places we love!…be our guest in our Italian Roman house! Welcome in ‘OUR WAY’ of Italy!
A walk through the house: When you enter the front door, you arrive in a nice living room with cosy fireplace and flatscreen tv and Sonos soundsystem so that you can sit, relax, watch television, read one of our books or magazines, explore our travelguides and enjoy our games for kids and off course use the wifi!
On the ground floor there’s also a cheerful dining area with yellow table and 6 chairs (spare chairs and baby-chairs available in laundry), next to a funny shaped sandcoloured kitchen with all the equipment you need to make breakfast, lunch, dinners and cakes….There’s also cookingpit, oven, large fridge, and freezer, microwave, a Lavazza-coffeemachine and a waterboiler and dishwasher to explore your Italian cooking qualtities! …a book full of typical Italian recipies is waiting for you there!
Then we have the smallest room, the restroom and the laundry with washing machine & dryer. When you open the back door of the laundry, you’re only 10 steps away from the marvelous lake…. That’s why we put here also a folding table and light aluminium chairs, sunbeds and beachtowels to take to the lake-terraces there (please put them again inside when you leave and during night).
Taking the stairs in typical Moltrasian stone from the area, you arrive on the first floor. Her it’s time for sleeping in one of our 3 bedrooms with double beds, off which 2 double boxsprings, all dressed up with luxury Italian Somma-bedlinen in Percall-coton. The biggest bedroom has also a balcony and view on the lake and the mountains. In this room you can also see Roman remains of the house… 2 old plates plastered in the wall.
On request we also can install a babycot for the smallest miracles. There’s also a dressing and 2 bathrooms. One bathroom has a toilet, bidet, bath and sink…the other one has a shower, a sink and a hairdryer. Both are forseen of nice French badlinen.
In the hall you take also the stairs to the rooftop terrace with mini-kitchen to eat on the round black table and chairs for 6. Here you can also relax on the 2 sandcoloured big loungebeds & enjoy the splendid 180° panorama view over the lake!
