Property description


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.

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.

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

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.
