My sister and I were born in the house next door. The house of chicks takes this name because originally housed up to 400 chicks that the war provided a chance to gain for mom and dad. After that we moved to Sondrio, the house has remained a refuge for summer and weekends and slowly we arranged to accommodate relatives and friends.
Why Maurizio chose Ardenno
Now, with our grown children, we'd love to meet new people with whom to share this place of nature and peace. We thought it would be a shame to keep the house empty for much of the year and that it was right to make known our seats to as many people as possible.
What makes this Chateau / Country House unique
The house overlooks the large backyard, where we planted a small vegetable garden, some fruit trees and a bit 'of colorful flowers. In front you see the panorama of Colmen, a hill of glacial origin that is all that remains of the glacial retreat hundreds of years ago. On the roof we have also put 21 solar panels to harness the sunlight in good weather. We have no problem of space to store their bikes.

Friendly, relaxing, authentic, and Fun
We had a lovely time during our three week stay. Maurizio and his wife Rosa were very friendly and accomodating from the moment we arrived. The village of Massino is a great location to explore the wonderful Valtelina region, and enjoy the culinary delights, the area is known for its Valtelina red wine, delicious. Some of our highlights included, visting Val di Mello (highly reccomend), Strada del Vino and wine tasting or just visting one of the Agriturismos along the way. Frattoria del Didattica petting zoo in the mountain, And for a day trip spend the day on the beach lake on the Novata Mezzola lake. Maurizio showed us where the rock pool was on the nearby river on the first day, and we returned at the end of the day to cool off. The village Massino and Ardenno (10 minute walk) have all the basics of a supermarket, and bank, cafe, etc. The nearby Spa supermarket also has fresh bread every morning. We could use the bicycles to explore the village and surrounding area. Our two kids (3 and 7) both loved playing in the garden which is nice grass garden with some Little Tikes garden playhouse and slide. We also Barbequed many nights and enjoyed the evening sun with Aperol Spritz. Everyone in the village is very friendly, and Maurizio has many family which allows you to really practice your conversational Italian if you want, including his cousin next door who is a bee keeper. He showed us his shop and we had honey tasting which the kids loved. We bought some of his honey on the last day to take home. It was delicious.
Thank you very much. I'm very glad hearing you have a wonderful time! You are a wonderful family!
Sehr viel Platz und ruhige Lage
Grazie mille! Siete stati molto gentili!
In de wolken
Er is geen duidelijke profielfoto van de woning en de ligging. Dat is jammer en zo hadden we geen goede indruk van het verblijf. Maar het is een prima plek in de tuin van de eigenaar, die er soms - een deel van - een weekend is. Helemaal geen last van en bovendien, uiterst vriendelijke mensen, die je behulpzaam zijn o.a. met tips over het dorpje, de winkels, de tochtjes, etc.
Prima huisje met alle voorzieningen al zou een magnetron en waterkoker nog wel fijn zijn. Er zijn 2 slaapkamers met prima bedden, een ruime zitkamer en keuken en goede badkamer. Een mooie tuin, afgesloten en vrij, vooral erg fijn voor onze honden.
Prima uitgangspunt voor tochtjes naar het Comomeer, leuke stadjes in de buurt en wij hebben van daaruit de Gavia 'gedaan'. In de sneeuw en in de wolken.
Dat waren we ook met dit huisje dat we graag aanbevelen (ook vanwege de lage prijs!)
perfecte gastheer en een uitstekende locatie voor sportievelingen
Casa tranquilla con un bel giardino e proprietari gentilissimi e affabili
La casa si trova in una zona molto tranquilla ai piedi della meravigliosa Val Masino.
Da qui si possono fare diversi tipi di escursioni dalle semplici passeggiate all'alpinismo. La casa ha un bellissimo curato giardino dal quale si possono scorgere le cime dei monti circostanti.È una tipica casa di campagna carina e accogliente.
Maurizio e la sua famiglia sono stati fantastici.
Ho passato 4 giorni veramente belli
Consiglio questa deliziosa casetta a tutti
Sicuramente ci ritornerò!
Sehr zu empfehlen!
Herzlichen Dank für Ihre Gastfreundschaft. Wir haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt. Das Haus ist mit allem ausgestattet, was benötigt wird. Der Hausherr ist ein sehr freundlicher und sympathischer Mann, herzlichen Dank für die schöne Führung durch den Ort und zum Fluss.
Landschaftlich wunderschön, lauter nette Leute und gutes Essen in der Umgebung! Wir kommen sehr gern wieder!

Too little time spent by me ... I still have so many things to let you know of my valley and my places ... I'm glad to have hosted you because you're a nice and kind family.
Valmasino is a mountain valley famous for its huge boulders, the many mountain huts, climbing towards important peaks of the Alps such as the lace Badile and Mount Accident, the "pools" of the creek Masino for summer bathing, the spa baths Masino, climbing and bouldering in Val di Mello. Our house is at the beginning of Val Masino, close to other important valleys which Valgerola and Val Tartano, but also just minutes from the beaches of Lake Como. Of course, it is the excellent gastronomy of the numerous farms in the area. A short drive away are the towns of Morbegno and Colico Sondrio where in summer there are numerous events.
