We rent out a room in a 16th century house in the village of Barna near Plesio (CO). The room has one double and one bunk bed, single room on request, a bathroom that may be to be shared with another single guest, a living room and a large kitchen to be shared with the other guests.
The house is located in an ancient village near woods and meadows. It's in a very silent and peaceful place, ideal for families, couples, and nature lovers. In Barna there are only houses and the church in the center of the village. The closest bar/restaurant/pizzera is in the center of Plesio, at two kilometers distance. In Menaggio (7 km) there are shops, supermarkets and restaurants.
The best way to reach Barna is by car, From Menaggio there is a bus service that arrives directly in Barna (but not on Sunday and on holidays). We are completely available to accompany our guests or to pick them up in Menaggio when needed.
Our guests have at their disposal a bedroom with a double bed and a bunk bed, a smaller room with a bunk bed and a handbasin, a bathroom and a living room. The large kitchen is to be shared with other guests. The rooms are on three floors and are connected by internal stairs.
In the house there are also other rooms where it's possible to host groups of people or large families. Parking place at about 200-300 meters of unpaved road. Heating: 30 euros/day.
Our guests have at their disposal a large garden with trees, with the possibility to make long walks and horse rides (10 km away).
Interaction with guests
We live on the third floor of the same house. We're happy to interact with our guests, or they can be totally independent from us and keep their privacy if they wish.
The room is in a house where we and possibly other guests live. We ask our guests to be respectful of the house and its forniture and to be silent in order to not disturb the Barna people.
