Fantastic house with amazing view (Sue and Nic Carter, Sydney, Australia)

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing time in Omar's house near the lake. We were welcomed by him and his parents like long lost family and it is very obvious how house proud the family is. The house was impeccably clean and extremely well equipped. We were 4 adults and there was plenty of space! We didn't wish for anything.

We loved the view of the lake and mountains and the close proximity to Mennagio and great walking tracks. Highly recommend this place. If it wasn't so far to travel, we would stay there over and over again. We imagine it would be great in winter too, with central heating and an open fire place, it would be very cozy.

Thanks Omar and your parents for a fantastic holiday.

Amazing place at the lake of como!

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is just like on the pictures, there is anything you need for the holidays in italy.

The view to the lake is absolutely beautiful, Santa Maria Recconizzo is a good starting point to see

Bellaggio & Mennagio and other cities, to go hiking or enjoy the italian cuisine.

Omar was very helpful and we had a friendly and warm welcome.

Thanks for the relaxing days at your place :-)

We can absolutely recommend this apartment.

Sehr schön renoviertes altes Bauernhaus, prima ausgestattet, netter Gastgeber, Superblick

  • 5 of 5

Das erst kürzlich renovierte Haus etwa aus 1880 liegt in einem Weiler im Ortsteil Marena, man fährt von Rezzonico oder San Siro neben der Kirche aus nach oben. Es ist super ausgestattet und herrlich für 4 Personen. Vor der Küche liegt eine bequeme Terrasse, das OG hat einen Balkon mit Superblick über den Lago. Vom Weiler aus kann man direkt loswanden, in die Berge, oder in den Ort Rezzonico mit einem lieblichen ruhigen Strand am See, einer verwinkelten Altstadt, einem kleinen Laden und 2 guten Lokalen. Besonders die Pizzeria ist zu empfehlen. Dieser Weg vermittelt etwas von dem früheren Leben in der Landwirtschaft am und oberhalb des Sees, abseits des mondänen Tourismus. Dennoch, in Menaggio mit Grand Hotels und allen Fähren ist man auch in wenigen Minuten.

Der Vermieter ist sehr nett und hilfsbereit, spricht etwas englisch und französisch.

Die Anfahrtbeschreibung könnte etwas verständlicher sein. Aber Marena ist im Navi zu finden.

Wir hatten wunderbar erholsame Tage dort, empfehlen es sehr gern weiter und fahren auch selbst wieder hin!

Wonderful place to stay and very nice owner and family, a great experience we'll never forget!

  • 5 of 5

Dear family Goni,

Thank you for staying at your wonderful casa!

Casa Marena is a realy nice house with a great view, equipped with all necessities to make your stay pleasant! You feel like you are in the middle of a fairytail.. Also the owner and his family are very friendly and helpful. Unfortunately our car broke down and needed to be repaired. Fortunately Omar and his family helped us and arranged that our car has been repaired in time. In the meantime we enjoyed our stay by swimming in the lake nearby. We're still really happy they assisted and helped us. Family Goni, thank you once again and we certainly return to casa Marena! Bye bye and until next time.

Jelte, Petra, Toine en Leonard Meijer

HISTORICALOUTLINE Rezzonico, is the lakeside hamlet built on the slopes of a promontory above which towers a 14th century castle. It is rimmed with sunny cliffs, natural beaches, and ancient archways and there are three ancient guard gates which probably date back to the 12th or 13th century. Close to the lake you can see two 18th century buildings whose portals display the coat of arms of the powerful Della Torre family. The name Rezzonico may originate from the Rhaetic people who lived here, from “Rhaeto”, an Etrurian captain who lived in the area or from the local term “risciulada” which indicates the cobblestone paving so typical of this village. Rezzonico could have been founded by the orobians, by the etrurians or by some of the gaul tribes (Celts and Senons), traces of them all having been found in several sites. We know for certain that the romans also settled here as testified by the famous roman historian Tito Livio. Two tablets with latin inscriptions (one now in Milan, the other in Menaggio), together with remanants of a massive wall,two fortifications and the road called “Strada Regina” also date back to roman times. Interesting and mysterious rock inscriptions have also been found in the woody areas bet- ween Roncate, Soriano and Vezzedo di Cremia. They belong to an ancient, unknown past and are still being exa- mined by experts and lovers of local history for their anthropological relevance.THE PARISH CHURCH AND OTHER MONUMENTS SANTA MARIA ASSUNTA Santa Maria Assunta, the historical parish church, is situa- ted very close to the lake. It was built in the 15th century on the site of a preceding church consecrated to the Holy Virgin, which, in turn (according to reliable sources) was built on the ruins of a pagan temple. The parish church,consecrated to Santa Maria Assunta, was built between 1464 and 1474 by the Dominicans. Romanesque elements can be detected in the bell tower. On the front of the church a large white marble portal shows decorations and symbols representing the Passion; on the left a high relief made of white marble from Musso shows the Holy Virgin with the Christ Child. Inside, the first chapel on the right hosts a portray of Our Lady of Mercy decorated by Sigismondo de Magistris in 1541. The decorations of the Triumphal Arc with the Assumption of the Virgin Mary were painted by artists belonging to the de Magistris’s school. The 2ndand 4thchapels show frescoes of Dominican saints and date back to 1579. The painting portraying the assumption of the Virgin Mary between S. Sebastian and S. Rocco was presumably painted by Agostino Calvi. The chapel of the Crucifixion; first chapel on the left, was decorated by artists from the Aurelio Luini’s school, while Giovanni Pietro Gnocchi built the high altar piece in 1578. The vault and sides of the presbitery, depicting episodes of the life of the Holy Virgin, were frescoed by Michelangelo Carminati in the mid-1590s when he also painted the decorations of the first chapel on the right which shows Moses ordering water to flow from rocks. The “scagliola” used to make the front of the little chapels dates back to the 17thcentury. The baptismal font is in white marble from Musso and dates back to 1511; its bas-reliefs representing the fight between life and death. Set in the wall on the left of the presbytery is a late renaissance marble tabernacle.THE ROMAN FORTRESS Along the main road, on the right-hand side of the church, visitors will face an imposing six metre high wall. In the past it embraced the church itself and the “piazza”. Scholars believe (and recent excavations seems to agree) this wall to be what is left of an old fortress built to keep control of inland and water trade along the ancient “Strada Regina”.

THE “CASTELLACCIO” Alittle north from the roman fortress on a hillock guarding the village of Rezzonico is the “Castellaccio”. The remains of an ancient four-sided tower and some large walls which in the past probably joined the roman fortress to the south and the walls of Rezzonico to the north. Local legends link these remains to the mischevious deeds of a mysterious country gentleman of Spanish descent called “Il Ficano”. .
