Corte, since…

The word “Corte” translates to “Court” in English.

“Corte”, since it was an old court-house, an old staging post where men used to stop to rest with their horses: the arch at the entrance with the kerbstone recalls the ancient coaches, the fountain, the original trough.


The Court is the part of the holiday house I love the most, since it better describes and characterizes the experience to be lived in our apartments, all facing the court: a true holiday experience, whether it is a short stay, a part of a bigger tour or just a stopover on your journey to or from Centre or Southern Italy.

Here we go, back in time: a staging post again, but the stay can be way more relaxing.


It is an enclave in the historical city centre, a peaceful and flowery corner where our guests can sit and enjoy a glass of wine in the evening, have breakfast with the kids in the morning, share a common area with their friends or just relax, chat, or pick rosemary and basil to use in their kitchen.




There are a lot of tourists and passers-by that, walking around in Cernobbio, come inside the Court and take many pictures of our “vertical garden”.

We really enjoy chatting with those who enter the Court, we like to show our house and, to be honest, we take pride in seeing them taking a photograph of a special detail and we are even happier when they compliment us or ask if they can “stole” an idea from us for their garden or terrace.
