Our home

This is our second house, in Bormio, one of the best sites of the Italian Alps. Bormio is 2 hours driveing from Milan, just on the border with Switzerland.
Bormio is world famous for many international skiing competitions which every year take place there. In particular, in the last years, between Christmas and the end of the year, there has been one appointment of the Downhill World Cup and the arrival of the race ... is right outside our windows! You can letterally see the race sitting on the sofa!
Apartment is at the first floor of a 3 floors house.
Peculiarity of this house is the unique position (let us tell that probably is the best you can get in Bormio!), in winter time you can go to the ski facilities in 3 minutes walking, and finish your day with the ski at your feet just outside the house door! Really unique!
The apartment has 3 rooms with 7 beds, 2 bathrooms a kitchen and a libing room. It has anything needed to go there, buy same food at the market (5 minutes walking), switch on the light and enjoy your stay.
In winter you can for sure practice skiing, enjoy the wonderful and famous spa (http://www.bagnidibormio.it) and any other winter activity. The top of the mountain in Bormio is 3000 mt high.
In summer is a perfect site for alpinism (many mountains over 3000 mts), Nordic walking, cycling (going up to the famous Stelvio Pass) and having unforgettable safaris in the Stelvio park, where you can see all the animals living in the alps.
Market, bar, pizzeria, restaurant, shops, ski & bike rentals and anything you need is within 5 minutes walking.
For those who are interested in skiing I want to underline that the season is from mid December to March/April depending from the snow. In summer time you can go to Stelvio (40 km drive) where you can practice summer skiing.
Housekeeper to take care of the house is available at a good price (11¤ per hour)! We'll supply a nice map with the location of anything you need and a small guide with all the instruction for the house and all the attractions and activities of the area!
There is not a garage but a private parking under the house balcony.

Your neighbourhood

In the same house there are other 3 apartments (all friends of us!)which are all second houses, so free for 90% of time in the year. Due to it's position is a very quite and relaxing area, specially outside main holidays.
In front of the house there is a terrace and a fenced garden where you can stay in summer to enojoy sunshine watching the mountain!
Outside the garden fences in summer there is a park with a nice bike school for childrens and a beach volley field.
