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 (first chapel of the Via Crucis) and along the carriage road or the Cappellette path (Via Crucis which leads to the Sacro Monte di Ossuccio); or by car via a narrow and leaning cobblestone 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. walkable uphill in 30/35 minutes.
Luggage transport is included in the rental price.
It is possible to organize your transportation 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 Ossuccio (Tremezzina).
Your transportation by car is also free and is always guaranteed from 08.00 AM to 19.00 PM.
No transport is carried out 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 on confirmation of the booking.
If you lose the transport by car you will automatically check in 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 more tiring climb (30/35 minutes) you can ask for a ride to the jeeps that pass by the road (every 10 minutes someone who always goes at least to the church); then during the check in phase I will give you some suggestions to go faster to the house and you will be given a map.
Parking under the house is ONLY accessible 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 couples and sports families looking for relaxation. Several paths start from the house.
From the house you can watch 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 "take and mark" shelter mode as well as the breakfast basket.
Each step to go up 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 Abbey of Acquafredda. Going down to the lake you can admire the hill of Lavedo with the magnificent Balbianello valley, 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 woods that awakens at the first light of dawn, and in the distance the bells of the Sacro Monte or the whistle of the boat that arrives in Lenno.

In the house you can use 4 vintage radios, whose repair is the passion of the owner Franco, even just one of these radios will give the house a vintage atmosphere. You can listen to your favorite music with the charm of an ancient tube radio via bluetooth in the room !!
Casa Antica takes on a particular charm in the evening, as the stone is enhanced by countless lights that come on on the stairs and terraces.

The very powerful wi-fi works inside the house and on the upper terrace.
