Beside the little enchantable Lagna’s wharf is Casa Brioschi, from which you can see one of the most evocative views of the lake and where, since 1991, each summer takes place "La Finestra sul Lago", a summer festival of arts, music and theater.
For centuries the entrance of Casa Brioschi has been occupied by the Osteria di San Giulio.
In the garden, close to 6. 000 mq, you'll find a great vegetation variety: high Japanese cypresses, once very common in the villas around the lake, a mediterranean pine, here grown in spite of lake climate, chestnuts, apple trees, a little vineyard, a very old rose-garden, hydrangeas, camellias and interesting Japanese anemones.
The Osteria di San Giulio, offers a warm, familiar, romantic and evocative atmosphere, the perfect place for studying, meditation, rest and love.
The ancient rooms are filled for the most with the original fornitures. The wide garden directly opens on the clean waters of the lake, where bathing is a real pleasure, and offers one of the most beautiful panoramas of the region. Dozens of fascinating corners all around, away from traffic, for unforgettable walks in a fantastic landscape.
