A modern retreat on Lake of Como
Located in the town of Melgrate, in the province of Lecco, Casa sull’Albero is a state-of-the-art facility that offers the utmost comfort and elegance in a relaxed and totally immersed nature setting.
The essence of the shapes of the structure and the sophisticated design attracted my attention! It reminds me a lot of Nordic architecture
Despite its name, it is not a real home on the tree, but a modern design, overlooking the lake of Como, which stands in a wonderful park with secular trees. The location offers its visitors an inestimable feeling of peace, tranquility and well-being: the ideal place to spend a romantic weekend or yourself, to relax and regenerate in contact with nature, without sacrificing modern conveniences.
The welcoming and rejuvenating atmosphere of the Casa del Albero is not only due to the environment in which the structure is located, but is also conferred by the hotel itself which has been designed and realized with great wisdom and meticulous attention to harmony materials, as well as an eye for energy saving, preferring energies from renewable sources.

Wood and stones from the area have been used for the interior design. The furnishings, however, are in a contemporary style, characterized by simple and clean lines, and ensure an orderly, elegant and welcoming effect.

As with the rest of the structure, the furnishings of the rooms are modern, minimal and very sophisticated, enriched with furnishing accessories and particular elements such as design lamps as Parentesi by Flos: simple but extremely elegant.
The kitchen and other common areas
There are at least three other reasons why it is worth staying at the Casa sull’Albero. The kitchen, the pool, and the library.
The interesting thing is that the kitchen is called “Honesty Kitchen” and offers its guests delicious dishes cooked skillfully by a chef using seasonal local produce at km 0. But the peculiarity of the kitchen is that it is accessible 24 hours a day and It has a fridge where water, fruit juices, wine, beer, yogurt and fresh fruit are present, from which guests can use themselves even at night, and then score on a notebook what has been taken that will then be paid to Check out time. From here, the name “Honesty Kitchen”.
The swimming pool is located in the beautiful sunny area, and is entirely made of stone. It is accessible between March and October and is heated. Even the rest of the garden is really wonderful and comfortable, there is also a large fireplace that gives the environment an almost fairy tale atmosphere.
