THE HISTORY OF THE VILLA. The villa, dating back to the early '900, with floors and parquet of that period, has undergone conservative restoration while preserving the original doors and fixtures. Furnished with antique furniture restored and renovated in modern style, it is spread over two levels for nearly 300 square meters with its large private garden.
All major families of Milan, in the early years of 900, had built their houses of holidays in the hill of Como Lake, and not by the lake, for the climate milder and less hot. In these places, they loved to spend all the summer months in order to escape the warmth of the city and enjoy the cool and the beauty of these wonderful places, ideal for those who love to dive into nature and to divide between relaxing, bathing at the lake and hiking in the hills or in the mountains. For this reason, a train station (active since 1922) is located at 5 minutes drive from Barni, at Asso / Canzo that in approx 1 hour connect the area to Milano Cadorna.

Interaction with guests

The house is spacious, bright, cozy, welcoming for groups of friends, big families, couples, but to make one's stay very special is my personal knowledge of the area with the opportunity to suggest to my guests (based on their age and interests) sites, hiking trails, beaches of the lake, picnic areas, mountain huts, characteristic restaurants not mentioned in the usual tourist circuits, to explore the charming lake of Como like a local, spending less money and having more fun! I will be happy to share with You my personal knowledge of the area with tips and suggestions

Betty is a great super host and I definitely recommend the place and Betty to anyone who plans to stay in the area! We had a family weekend in Barni and she was very cooperative with all our needs. She had very good suggestions on hikes, must sees, restaurants, everything! She responded super quickly and was very committed The villa is extremely beautiful and perfect for groups. Bath rooms are new and everything is very clean. Thank you so much Betty, we will come back soon!

We had a real good (EMAIL HIDDEN)munication was perfect, the house is well equiped, the beds are good, there is enough space for everyone. Barni is really nice. The small village had everything we needed and the people are very friendly. We spend a few days at the beach and that was lovely too. And last but not least: Betty is a great host!

Fantastic! Location is just off from the main parts of the region, so a car is highly advised. However, you are right near everything, with privacy, a large comfortable home with a wonderfully outfitted kitchen. Simply put, the description is very accurate. Plenty of pans, glasses, dishes for a house full of people (we were seven). Plenty of larger pots, coffee machines. Beds are comfortable. Wifi was just added as well. Barni is not a hot spot - but there is a market, a backer and a restaurant and bar. From Barni, you can reach all the wonderful spots in the region, with nothing less than 30 minutes away. This is a great place for a short term stay, or a long-term vacation.

It was a fantastic experience staying at Betty's villa. We were 4 families and had ample space in there. One of the reasons why chose this place was the involvement from Betty's side in suggesting us various activities to do around the villiage. We in fact ended up extending our trip by one more day as there was so much to see and experience. The villa was of course great and fully equipped. Children loved it as well since it has a garden outside where they could play. We left the place with the feeling of coming back again to experience the Italian Village one more time.

Elisabetta User ProfileElisabetta is a superhost.

Hi, my name is Elisabetta but my friends call me Betty. I live in the little and beautiful village of Barni, close to Bellagio, suspended between lake and mountains. Optimistic, energetic and spark, for job I’ve been always involved in marketing, communication, PR while my recent passion is wear a red nose and become a "social clown" in the hospital, close to the children and grandma. I strongly believe in friendship and solidarity, love traveling, walking in nature, iceskating and rollerblading, snowboarding, discovering old villages and new places, cooking and having guests. The friends of my daughter, as soon as they enter the house, ask me: "can I come back tomorrow? !!!". A sentence that represent myself is: "ALIVE and SHARE." I like to "live" and "share" emotions, experiences and places. When I discover a “magic” place I must make it known to my friends and to my guests! I love having guests all around, suggest small villages to visit, or towns to discover, beaches on the lake or hiking trails that, along paths and trails not included in the classic touristic tours, reach the natural pools of a river or the top of a mountain to admire the unique landscapes. I was born at the sea (Genova) and when I was a child my family moved to the lake in the town of Como. Lake Como made me fall in love and, to grow up our daughter, we choose Barni, a small and quiet village in the hills of Lake Como surrounded by nature between lake and mountains! Here, in Barni, in February 2015 I opened our house to guests who come from all over the world! The name is "The best place to visit Como Lake!" and is a KID FRIENLDY house. It has been a great and succesfull experience :-) Consequently, after more than 2 years experience as host, in July 2017 I opened another location always in the little and friendly village of Barni. The name for this new location is "The Como Lake easy chic villa", an old fashion private villa with garden to accomodate big groups of friends or families with several bedrooms and bathrooms but always at an affordable price! The Larian triangle is my new land and I would not be able to go back for the beautiful landscapes that offers during all the seasons. Anyway, I do not forget the land where I born... and when I cook for my friends, I prepare the traditional Ligurian “focacce”!
As "host" I am committed to my guests in to experience real emotions to discover this beautiful area as well as I live: INTENSE!
I wait for you.
You are all welcome at my houses :-)
Feel free to ask me any questions you have. I will gladly answer!
All the best. Betty
Sono Elisabetta, per gli amici Betty. Vivo a Barni, piccolo paesino di collina vicino a Bellagio. Ottimista, energica e frizzante, per lavoro sono una creativa e mi sono sempre occupata di marketing, comunicazione, PR... mentre per passione indosso un naso rosso e divento un “clown di corsia” in ospedale. Credo fortemente nell'amicizia e nella solidarietà, amo viaggiare, camminare nella natura, pattinare, sciare, scoprire il territorio, cucinare e avere ospiti grandi e piccini. Gli amichetti di mia figlia appena entrano in casa mi chiedono "posso tornare anche domani?!!!". Il mio motto è: “VIVO e CONDIVIDO”. Mi piace “vivere” e “condividere” emozioni, esperienze e luoghi. Quando scopro un luogo speciale devo assolutamente farlo conoscere ai miei amici e ai miei ospiti! Amo avere "ospiti per casa", suggerire piccoli borghi da visitare o città da scoprire, spiagge di lago o itinerari di trekking che, lungo sentieri e mulattiere sconosciute dai classici itinerari turistici, raggiungono le pozze naturali di un fiume o la vetta di una montagna per ammirare dall'alto paesaggi unici al mondo. Sono nata al mare e quando ero piccola la mia famiglia si è trasferita sul lago, a Como. Il Lago di Como mi ha fatto innamorare e per crescere la nostra bambina abbiamo scelto questo piccolo e tranquillo paesino immerso nella natura tra lago e montagne! Quì, a Barni, ho aperto la nostra casa agli ospiti che arrivano da tutto il mondo! Il triangolo lariano è la mia nuova terra e non sarei capace di tornare indietro per i paesaggi incantevoli che offre e perché, con l’alternarsi delle stagioni, riesce sempre a stupire. Allo stesso tempo non dimentico le mie origini e… quando cucino per i miei amici preparo le inconfondibili focacce della tradizione ligure! Come “host”mi impegno nel far vivere ai miei ospiti delle emozioni vere alla scoperta di questo splendido territorio come l: INTENSAMENTE!
Vi aspetto!
