Hi dear friends, we are new to People Like Us but we have already swapped several times using other sites. Please note that we have holiday only at Christmas and in August, so if you wish to come in other dates the exchange will have to be non simultaneous. The village is called Fonteno and it is in the province of Bergamo. It is also defined "the lake's balcony" because it offers unforgettable views on the lake. It has two food shops, two cafès, the post office, three playgrounds for children, two restaurants and one rural restaurant in a farm. The village is extremely quiet and is very happily located, being exactly 7 km from Iseo Lake and 7 km from Endine Lake. On both lakes you can find touristic villages and activities, restaurants, cafès, you can go fishing, rent a pedal boat, or windsurfing, sailing,or relax on the small beaches. We are a family of 4, our children are aged 14 and 17. We are experienced travellers and we offer for exchange our second home on the hills above Iseo Lake in Northern Italy.

The space

As a description of our place, we have been writing for years that our lake was unknown even to italian mass tourism. Then in July 2016 there was Christo's "Floating Piers" and everything changed. For 3 weeks the world got to know our hidden gem, and now we are the very famous Iseo Lake of Christo's Floating Piers! However do not worry, the area is still unspoilt and the touristic offer is still not made "only" for tourists, but for locals as well. Our house dates back to the beginning of 1600, but don't panic, it was completely restored. It is on three floors: - at the ground floor there is the kitchen which opens on a small garden. There is a porch with a table where we usually eat outside; - at the first floor there is a bedroom and a bathroom; - at the second floor there is the master bedroom, another small bedroom (bunk bed) and the bathroom. For relaxing outside, we have a hammock, deck chairs and barbecue. And the view on the lake and the mountains, of course.

Guest access

*********The house is in the historical centre of the village and it has no direct access by car. There is plenty of parking places nearby, all free of charges. You will have to walk 150 metres from the parking (two minutes). There are stairs and a pebble street to get to the house, and the house itself is on three floors (spiral staircase), therefore it is unfortunately not suitable for wheel chairs.****************

Neighbourhood

Ideas for a day trip: Monte Isola, Lovere, Iseo, Sarnico, Bergamo, Brescia, Mantua, Garda Lake, Como Lake, Verona, Padua, Venice. The one trip you will prefer is the one to Monte Isola :-) We do also have a giant bench! If you search "panchina gigante Fonteno", it is a charming installation belonging to the artistic movement "Big Bench Community Project".

Getting around

You will definitely need a car to move around. There is a train station in Pisogne (some 20 minutes from here) that unbelievably will take you to Venice, Verona, Padua in less time than by car.

Member description
Our family consists of 4 people. Fabio and Cristina run their own company. Fabio is fond of motorcycles. Cristina loves reading. Federico is 16 and goes to school, he is fond of theatre. Matilde is 13 and also goes to school, she likes drawing manga and being creative. We are non smokers and have no pets. Cristina has a severe allergy to cats, sorry we cannot exchange with homes where these wonderful animals live indoors (outdoors is fine, we can take care of your cats, we already did it several times). We are experienced home exchangers and are respectful of other people's property. We keep much pride in keeping our house clean and tidy and we would like to exchange with people who are the same.
