  • Our stay in Marco&Rosanna house was just perfect.
    The house is lost on the Iseo lake's hill, it's very calm! The nature is beautiful and the view on the lake is just amazing. You do not have that view from the house, but within 1min walk (still on the property) you get it. And even more : walking trails are next to the garden (but don't worry you do not see and hear anybody) and you can go up to a small church where the view is wonderful.
    Inside, it's charming and perfect for 2 people.
    Rosanna (marco's wife) was really kind and she gave us some good tips to visit the area. We didn't have the chance to meet Marco but everything was well prepared.
    We strongly recommend Marco's place. It's in our TOP3. We certainly come back in the following years.

    Something to know : Marco rents 2 houses on the property. We had the chance to be alone but it would not have been the same if we had to share the property :-)

  • Again, it was a wonderful experience to stay in the house in the woods! Marco was a very kind and helpful host!

  • The house in the woods is amazing, like a dream home! Like others have already mentioned is exactly like the pictures and very well kept. A small cottage on the top of a hill (well, nearly, you can certainly get a nice hike among the trees to the top and the view will be stunning) away from everything. With beautiful surroundings and so so quiet, you'll hear nothing but the sounds of the forest. We made a fire some days when it was colder and spent really nice evenings with tea and mulled wine, seemed like christmas! And you can get all the timber you can wish for from a shed near the cottage. If you want solitude, nature and a warm cosy cottage, this is perfect.

    Now, even though the cottage and the mountain is second to none, I'd recommend bringing a car. We didn't have one and where kind of stuck there, because you can't rely on italian buses! They arrive whenever they feel like it. One time we wanted to go to Lovere, which is like 15 min from Solto Collina (the nearest town to the cottage, around 10 min walking down hill) and waited more than an hour for a bus that never came, and we didn't have the times wrong. Maybe they where napping with the rest of the town at the moment since everything shuts down from (phone number hidden) pm to, well, have a nap. So, bring a car, because the nearby towns like Lovere and Bergamo are beautiful and very much worth a visit. If it weren't for Marco being so kind as to drive us there (thank you Marco! We love you!) we would've never seen them. He even took us to a really big supermarket (the one in town is quite small) and because he knew we love fruit and vegs he brought us some from a field or something once. So yes, Marco is a great host and he helped us in every way he could. Such a great person, our experience there wouldn't have been the same without making his acquaintance.

    One final thing, bring a mosquito repelent. Seriously. Those indonesian things are quiet and they sneak on you like nothing you've faced before. They're evil, pure evil. You don't hear them or feel them, and only realize they where on you when that huge red mountain that itches like crazy turns up. We got bitten every day and more than once.They are the ultimate blood sucking things, and the certainly know how to skulk, when skulking is required. So protect yourselves.

  • Marco is friendly and a very helpful host: without him picking us up we had never found the house in the woods. The house is like on the pictures, it was quite relaxing to stay there a few days!

    June 2013
  • We stayed here for our honeymoon and had such a lovely time. My husband and I could hardly speak any Italian and arrived late in the day as our GPS device broke on the way from the airport. Marco was very nice and accommodating. He waited for us to come and drove us to the house as (website hidden) maps and the GSP devices do not have the correct address.

    The house is very secluded and set on a beautiful mountain that overlooks the town below. As others said you can not see the lake directly from the little house but it's a very short stroll and the view from any angle is beautiful!

    The places is smaller than it looks in photos but absolutely perfect for a couple. The kitchen was well stocked in cooking supplies and utensils. Thanks to Marco's direction we went to the bakery for bread and croissants in the morning and the grocery store for the meals we cooked in the kitchen.

    We made a fire every night in the fireplace and it actually had a vent to send the heat up to the bedroom. Which made the nights all the more cozy.

    We hope to stay here again soon and definitely recommend it!

  • A beautiful location! And a very nice and helpful host, we will come again!

  • Marco was a wonderful host. We had no problem meeting up with him and when we arrived onsite, the house and surroundings were even more beautiful than imagined. Even though the weather wasn't cooperating, we had a great time - sitting in front of the fire, or visiting the small towns nearby... We hope to return soon!

    November 2012
  • We had a wonderful time at the house in the woods. It is small but cozy and has just about everything you could want for a short retreat. Marco was welcoming and helpful with what to explore both locally and in our other Italian destinations. I'd be happy to return.

  • A beautiful place to visit. Marco was very helpful and made our stay very pleasant.

About
Hello, I'm Mark and I live on a hill in a quiet place, where you have a magnificent view of Lake Iseo. Airbnb I discovered through a friend at the beginning of September 2011 and the idea of offering hospitality to travelers through the site I liked it but .... I did not think that would be an experience so intense and exciting! Arrived travelers from many countries and so far everyone has enjoyed the beauty of this lake "magic". I hope the site airbnb grows over time while maintaining the spirit that gave birth and continuing to improve the opportunities for hosts and travelers. I will be happy to give you tips and suggestions to help you learn about places and routes that are close to your interests. By the time I'm enriching guide on the site so consult it! If you like the idea of being with your dog under a tree, doing nothing, walking with your child to discover the country, read a book comfortably lying on a deck chair .... Well you do. The guest reviews can help you beyond what I can offer. My dream travel at this time is finding the time to visit the lake in Malawi Niasa ....... but here I am fine if guests bring me the visions of their part of the world! In the house you will find books by Kurt Vonnegut and Douglas Adams, in the woods occasionally wanders our dog is a nice and quiet Bernese Mountain Dog. If you want to watch a movie on DVD or listen to a CD we will try to accommodate you: usually recommend to review The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy .... at least the beginning and Hunting Red to October. If you feel close anthroposophy, look for a holistic approach to your well-being or just want to have a quiet holiday this is a good place. I offer the house to meet a very special place on Lake Iseo. I will be pleased to know guests and advise on itineraries for places to discover and taste to know. Personally I think spending a few days admiring the lake with its colors and its mountains is an wonderfull experience both on sunny days than in those with rain and snow. This lake is magical, and who comes to see usually appreciate it! I am fond of the breed of the Bernese mountain dog, I like to think that Kurt Vonnegut is still alive and is looking us slyly the passing of our lives too busy to type files and to drive a car. On the paths of this hill or in the shade of a tree with the breeze of the wind you can sit still and make a dream of a world better? Ciao, sono Marco e vivo sulla collina in un luogo tranquillo, da cui si ha una magnifica vista sul Lago d’Iseo. Ho scoperto Airbnb grazie ad un amico ad inizio del mese di Settembre 2011 e l’idea di offrire ospitalità ai viaggiatori tramite il sito mi è piaciuta ma…. non pensavo che sarebbe stata un’esperienza tanto intensa ed entusiasmante! Sono arrivati viaggiatori da tanti paesi e fino ad ora tutti hanno apprezzato la bellezza di questo lago “magico”. Spero che il sito di airbnb cresca nel tempo mantenendo lo spirito che lo ha fatto nascere e continuando a migliorare le opportunità per chi ospita e per chi viaggia. Sarò lieto di darvi indicazioni e suggerimenti per aiutarvi a conoscere luoghi e itinerari che siano vicino ai vostri interessi. Nel tempo sto arricchendo la guida presente nel sito pertanto consultatela! Se vi piace l’idea di stare con il vostro cane sotto un albero a non fare nulla, passeggiare con il vostro bambino a scoprire la campagna, leggere un libro comodamente sdraiati su una sdraio …. Beh fate voi. Le recensioni degli ospiti vi possono aiutare al di là di quello che posso proporvi. Il mio sogno di viaggio in questo periodo è trovare il tempo per visitare il lago Niasa in Malawi ma …….anche qui mi trovo bene se gli ospiti mi portano le visioni della loro parte di mondo! In casa troverete libri di Kurt Vonnegut, e di Douglas Adams, nel bosco ogni tanto gironzola il nostro cane che è un simpatico e tranquillo Bovaro del Bernese. Se volete vedere un film in dvd o ascoltare un cd vedremo di accontentarvi: di solito consiglio di rivedere Guida Galattica per autostoppisti .... almeno l’inizio e Caccia all’Ottobre Rosso. Se vi sentite vicini all’antroposofia, cercate un approccio olistico al vostro star bene o semplicemente volete fare una vacanza tranquilla questo è un buon posto. Offro la casa per incontrare un posto molto speciale sul lago d'Iseo. Sarò lieto di conoscere gli ospiti e consigliare itinerari per luoghi da scoprire e gustare sapere. Personalmente penso che trascorrere qualche giorno ammirando il lago con i suoi colori e le sue montagne è un'esperienza meravigliosa, sia nelle giornate di sole rispetto a quelli con pioggia e neve. Questo lago è magico, e che viene a vedere di solito apprezzano! Sono appassionato della razza del Bovaro del Bernese, mi piace pensare che Kurt Vonnegut è ancora vivo e ci sta guardando maliziosamente il passaggio della nostra vita troppo occupato a scrivere i file e di guidare una macchina. Sui sentieri di questa collina o all'ombra di un albero con la brezza del vento si può stare fermo e fare un sogno di un mondo migliore?
