Photos and Description of this Selva holiday chalet

Stone House with 3 indipendent Apartments

OUTDOOR

I ‘Rustici di Cher’ are a lovingly restored old farmhouse nestled into the chestnut forest of Montemezzo above Gera Lario and boast an unforgettable panoramic view of Lake Como.

Kids can play in a safe environment in the green in front of the house.

This wonderful view can be enjoyed from all three apartments: Le PAPERE , Le TARTARUGHE and Le CAMPANELLE.

Le PAPERE has a large panoramic terrace facing the lake, LE TARTARUGHE and Le CAMPANELLE have a porch and private garden with panoramic view.

All terrace and porch are well furnished with wooden dining tables and chairs and relax chairs that beg you to spend the whole day outdoor, simply soaking up the view. All apartments have their private barbeque for the practice of your culinary skills.

In the forest of Cher only 300 meters from the house there is 'Il torrente Sorico' a nice small and wild river with nice pools of refrashing water where you can relax.

ECO BUILDING: I Rustici di Cher has been realized with special attention to the rational use of energy and environmental sustainability. In 2010 they have been certified by CESTEC as class B (the ranking goes from class G to class A being class A the best one). CESTEC is the regional energy agency of Lombardia.

INSIDE

It has taken the owner three years to complete the lovely restoration of I Rustici di Cher with the strict building regulation being consulted every step on the way. The result is quite stunning, the apartments are a real gem, full of charm., They are bright and with a fantastic view on the valley.The house has been furnished by an architect from Milan with special details to be comfortable and charming. There is high quality wood and stone work throughout, exposed ceiling beams. Overall the test full design and color schemes makes you fell at home. The house is eco friendly with solar heated hot water system, central gas heating and independent wood heating as well.

It a small private paradise, not only for hikers and mountain bikers, but also for those looking for a peaceful escape and a chance to explore the culture of Alto Lario and its very well known gastronomic attractions.

The owner lives in Monza, but also uses the vacation home himself and consequently it is particularly well thought out and lovely maintained.

PARKING

This is a very safe area and you can park in the garden at the back of the house (1 car per apartment) or in the road at the beginning of via Cher, (the 130 m path that leads you up to the house that has been recently restructured), or in a bigger parking near S. Martino Church (200 metres from via Cher)

Via Cher ends at I Rustici di Cher and they are almost a car free pedestrian zone that make the place more peacefull.

If you drive e 4*4 you can park in garden at the back of the house.

If you are a good hiker you can make a NO CAR CHOICE and walk down to Gera Lario (2 km of an ancient footpath) were you can find a supermarket, a bakery, cafés, restaurant, a big swimming pool and many other sport facility in the area of the harbor.

A fantastic house with a fantastic view

  • 5 of 5

I rented this brand new house in Montemezzo in August 2010 and it turned out to be far bejond my expectations. The hosue was clean, well furnished and with all necessary appiances for a confortable stay, very different from the average holiday house you can rent in this area. It's located up on the hill, 5-minute walk from the main road. It's an ideal place for families with children, but also for those peole who love to be in the nature. It's only five/ten minutes by car from to the lake shore where all sports facilities can be found. The owner is friendly and available to supply all information about the surroundings that he knows very, very well. I found very useful the "welcome package" with all information about the area prepared by the owner for his guests. I reccommend this place to all my friends and what's more the price/qualty ratio is excellent. Francesca

Schön gelgen aber umständlich zu erreichen

  • 2 of 5

Wir waren im Le Tartarughe. Die Wohnung liegt schön, allerdings ist das einchecken etwas umständlich, da es vom Parkplatz auf einer Schotterstraße mit schlechtem Belag ca. 100 m Bergauf geht. Die Prozedur dauert damit sicher 2 h (je nach Personenanzahl).

Die ruhige Lage ist sehr positiv, allerdings wäre es empfehlenswert die Bäume vor dem Haus, welche die Sicht auf den See komplett versperren zu fällen. So muss man aus dem Haus heraus um etwas vom Comer See zu sehen.

Negativ aufgefallen ist vor allem auch, dass außer einer Grundreinigung wohl nicht viel vor unserer Ankunft gemacht wurde (Spinnweben etc. in Ecken und auf der Fensterbank im Bad). Eine Waschmaschine, wie auf FeWo-direkt angegeben findet sich nicht. Das ist eine Frechheit! Wir hatten zum Glück schon damit gerechnet, weil Sie auf der kurz vorher zugestellten Inventarliste fehlte und uns nicht darauf eingestellt. Die Badewanne verliert Wasser, wenn das Überlaufventil gebraucht wird. Sie ist auch sehr klein!

Die Töpfe in der Küche waren auch nicht sehr komfortabel, der Kühlschrank dafür so gut wie neu und sehr gut, mit recht großem Gefrierfach.

Die junge Frau die das einchecken vor Ort erledigt war freundlich kann aber so gut wie kein Englisch, noch sonst eine Fremdsprache!

Der Besitzer hingegen spricht gut Englisch und war auch sehr freundlich, als wir ihm per SMS mitteilten, dass wir einen Tag früher abreisen, weil unserer Tochter schlecht schlief, hat er extra zurückgerufen und sich erkundigt, ob es etwas schlimmes sei. Leider war er im vorfeld und per Telefon nicht gut erreichbar.

Insgesamt war die Einrichtung dem Preis wohl ungefähr angemessen, auf die schlechte Zufahrt wurde hingewiesen, daher geht das auch in Ordnung. Ein Shuttleservice mit Allrad würde hie sehr positiv wirken!

Aufgrund der fehlenden Waschmaschine und der Spinnweben, sowie der Badewanne, des alten Mobilars und der Töpfe, sowie der relativ leicht zu verbessernden Aussicht gebe Ich jedoch nicht mehr als 2 Sterne.

We had a great holiday! thanks

  • 5 of 5

First of all, we want to thank you for a lovely vacation. The area is beautiful and the access to it was so comfortable. We really enjoyed it. We enjoyed the apartment, which was neat and clean. The apartment was so well organized inside and it was the perfect size for our big family. The sunny terrace was absolutely perfect for relaxing. Montemezzo, Gera and Gravedona are great places to stay. There are a lots of restaurants and cafes and also very good wine bars. We loved Lake Como - it was paradise!

We will take advantage of it again.

A perfect stay

  • 4 of 5

We had perfect stay in La Tartarughe. The house is aprox. 4k driving above the lake but you are away from the touristic traffic. The last 150m you have to climb a steap climb (witch is a bit an issue but the owner is very helpfull with his 4x4 to carry you lugage when you arrive). The house is perfect : spacious, massive walls so easy to keep cool, well equiped kitchen, nice and clean bathroom, etc. We (2 adult and 2 kids :5 & 7 years old) enjoyed the magnificant view over the Como-lake, the nice walks in the woods above, diving and swimming in the lake, visits to touristic places in the area, etc. We would recommand it to everyone who likes water, walks, pizza :) ... in the non touristic area of the Como lake! Thanx to Paolo for the nice time!!!

Een aanrader!

  • 4 of 5

Een zeer compleet vakantiehuis, voorzien van alle gemakken en met een prachtig uitzicht op het Comomeer. We hebben een fantastische week gehad, veel gewandeld in de mooie omgeving, gezwommen in het Comomeer maar ook in ons eigen zwembadje op het terras! In de grote tuin hebben we ook nog hertjes gespot, erg leuk! Klein minpuntje is de afstand tot de verharde weg, je moet een behoorlijk eind klimmen vanaf je auto om bij het huis te komen. Je kunt nl. niet zelf met de auto bij het huis komen. Maar verder, niets dan lof! De eigenaar is ook erg aardig en behulpzaam.

Samengevat: een echte aanrader!
