Holiday Rental House
The house (actually 2 houses linked to a medieval tower) has recently been restored to a very high standard and is now a much-loved family home. It is situated in the tranquil, hill-top hamlet of Colognola di Casazza in the Pre-Alps near Bergamo, Lombardy. Once part of a fortified medieval complex, the property dates from the 13th century when it was a defensive 'house-tower' belonging to the local seigneur, who would retreat into the tower with his family in times of attack. Having undergone an extensive, 4-year renovation, the property now sleeps up to 10/11 and has a lovely, private, heatable swimming pool, together with pool house. The pool house has its own small kitchen and 2 bathrooms. There is a beautiful 17th century loggia and portico overlooking a private courtyard, plus lawned ...The house (actually 2 houses linked to a medieval tower) has recently been restored to a very high standard and is now a much-loved family home.

The property is situated in the Val Cavallina, an area largely undiscovered by tourists to date, and only 35 minutes from Milan Bergamo airport. It is within easy driving distance of the three great lakes, Garda, Como and Maggiore. Also easily accessible are Bergamo, Milan, Mantua, Cremona, Padua, Vicenza and Venice. Close by is small, unspoilt and exquisite lake Endine, within 10 minutes by car, and the area is fantastic for hiking in the local mountains - local guides can be arranged on request. In the local town of Casazza there is the Roman archaeological site of Cavellas, situated under a supermarket, and a small ethnographic museum. The property has all the modern amenities, wifi, TV, UK satellite channels, etc., plus four kitchens in total; a local cook can be arranged for guests on request. More

About the neighbourhood
Casazza is situated in the Pre-Alps of Lombardy, where the Alps meet the plain. It is mountain and lake country, and within driving distance of the major ski-ing resorts of the Dolomites. Lakes Garda, Como and Maggiore are all within a couple of hours driving distance by car. The great finance and fashion centre of Milan is an hour and a half away by car or train. Also nearby are Mantua, Verona, Vicenza, Padua and Venice (it takes three and a half hours to get to Venice by either car or train). The nearest town is Bergamo, a lovely, ancient hill-top town, which is 35 minutes away by car.
Getting around
A car is strongly recommended for getting around, although there is a regular and efficient bus service from Casazza to Bergamo and neighbouring towns. Mainline trains run from Bergamo (35 minutes away by car) and Brescia (1 hour away), and branchline trains from Montello Gorlago (25 minutes away by car). Taxis can be organised through local companies Autoservizi Zambetti in Casazza, or Balsamo at Vigano. The current taxi fare to Bergamo airport from Colognola di Casazza is €50.00 one-way. The fare to Milan Linate airport is €110.00 one-way.
