CASA ANTICA vista lago antico charm

  • House
Comune Tremezzina - Località Ossuccio - Cremia di Ossuccio - 22010 Tremezzina - Como - Italy

CASA ANTICA is a beautiful stone villa, the result of a careful renovation of the owners who have left the authenticity of two ancient stables unchanged. You can stay immersed in nature and relax with a splendid panorama.

Guests will have access to the entire house. Casa Antica can be reached on foot (30 minutes) starting from Piazza Papa Giovanni XXIII in Ossuccio (the first chapel of the Via Crucis) and following the carriage road or the path of the Cappellette (Via Crucis leading to the Sacro Monte di Ossuccio); or by car through a narrow and sloping cobbled road ONLY AND EXCLUSIVELY WITH SUZUKY JIMNY or PANDA 4X4 with reduced traction (do not venture with other cars !!!).
The difference in height is about 400mt. accessible uphill in 30/35 minutes.
Luggage transport is included in the rental price.
It is possible to organize your transport by agreeing at the time of booking; in this case the check-in appointment must be established at a specific time; the meeting with Paola will be at the free parking in Piazza Papa Giovanni XXIII in Località Ossuccio (Tremezzina).
Your transport by car is also free and is always guaranteed from 08.00 AM to 19.00 PM.
We do not carry out transport in the dark for safety reasons, given the lack of side road protections.
In case of late check in, notify Paola on her mobile number, which will be provided to you upon confirmation of the booking.
If you miss the car transport you will do an automatic check in arriving on foot at the house (which I do not recommend with luggage, in this case only bring backpacks).
During your stay you can go down to the lake enjoying the wonderful panoramic walk (15/20 minutes); for the most tiring climb (30/35 minutes) you can hitch-hike a ride to the jeeps that pass along the road (every 20 minutes someone always passes by at least as far as the church); then during the check in phase I will give you some suggestions to go up more quickly to the house and you will be provided with a map.
The parking under the house is accessible ONLY from Fiat panda 4x4 or suzuky jimny.
The House is suitable for those who want to practice yoga or meditation in the open air, for sports couples and families looking for relaxation. Several paths start from the house.
From the house you can observe the flight of the Black Kite.
Near the house you can buy eggs, dairy products, and organic vegetables.
Also inside the house there is a small supermarket with basic necessities in shelter mode "take and mark" in addition to the breakfast basket.
Each step to climb to Casa Antica will give you a different emotion: enchanting views of the lake, from the Monastery of San Benedetto in the distance to the Acquafredda Abbey. Going down to the lake you can admire the Lavedo hill with the magnificent vIlla Balbianello, Villa Balbiano and reach the Lido for a refreshing swim.
Ten minutes from the house you will find the excellent Trattoria del Santuario where you can taste typical dishes.
From the house you can hear all the sounds of the forest that awakens at the first light of dawn, and in the distance the bells of the Sacro Monte or the whistle of the boat arriving in Lenno.
