"Il Rudere" -The Writer’s Nest is the ancient refuge of stone quarrymen, built at the end of the 1800s, inside a stone quarry, dating back to the Roman Times and located in Faggeto Lario shore, on Lake Como.
There lives the writer Giuseppe Guin who in that place, full of stories and legends, set his novels.
At the bottom of the quarry, the overhanging rock still retains the signs of the stone quarrymen who worked there for centuries, drawing stones from the mountains to build homes and churches of Lake Como.
On the lakeside, the grassy beach is enclosed by the characteristic circular stepped rocks, used in the past by the fishermen of twaite shads and perchs.
"Il Rudere": an exclusive place to enjoy the charm of a centuries-old history. A reserved corner, where you can enjoy unique moments of well-being, enjoying the tranquillity of the lake and listening to the silence of its sunrises and sunsets.
"Il Rudere", is one hundred and twenty square meters, includes two double rooms with private bathroom each, one single room and wooden and glass veranda with lake view.
The library was built using centuries-old chestnut wood boards, set in stone.
The living room, with antique furniture, with the old kitchen and the sink carved into the granite, is carved between the square stones of the quarry.
The room, called “Bilancia” (Scales), overlooks the lake and from the windows, salt the lapping of the waves that break on the rocks.
The room, called “Lanterna” (Lantern), dominates the laurel forest and takes a look at the natural amphitheater, shaped in the rock.
The wooden doors open with ancient bolts saved in the houses of the village and the lights filter through hand-forged old iron lanterns.
Around, there are three thousand square meters of lawn and forest, concealing from a stone wall from one side and towards the lake by a grassy beach.
