Via Basso, 10/D - BRISSAGO VALTRAVAGLIA (VA)
Business opened in March 2015.
Our B&B will greet you just out of Brissago Valtravaglia, at the place named “Ca' du Bas” at 500 mt. height.
Inside this small old “Borgo” of rural houses, which was once a monastery, you'll find yourself completely surrounded by the woods of Valtravaglia and close to the Lake Maggiore, or the Regional Park of Campo dei Fiori near Varese.
It is a relaxing oasis where you can find peace and quiet, a beautiful view of the valley around and Swiss Mountains. From the windows you can experience bird watching or have a glimpse of squirrels and loirs, and it won't be rare, early in the morning or at sunset to spot dears, foxes and badgers.. a unique experience!
All this without the need to pick up the car.
From our borgo you can start wonderful trekking or with the mountain bike explore trails all around.
Yet you will find yourself few minutes drive from Luino or Laveno on the lakeside, half an hour away from Varese or Lugano and less than an hour from Milano or Malpensa airport.
You'll be hosted in the old rural house, recently restored to maintain the original charm, where you will find, on the first floor a nice living area with a fully equipped kitchen, a mezzanine with sofa and TV, one double bedroom, a second bedroom with bunk bed and bathroom with tub. On the ground level there is the entry hall and a second bathroom with shower.
