WHERE TO STAY

Escape! Asia - - Cover Story -

Built in 1780, Palazzo Gam­boni is set in a bu­colic lo­ca­tion that over­looks Onser­none Val­ley. The charm­ing coun­try house was bought by the cit­i­zens’ com­mu­nity of Co­mologno and con­verted into a small ho­tel for trav­ellers in 1996. The charm­ing house has its orig­i­nal ex­te­rior façade and its in­te­rior is filled with an­tique fur­ni­ture and con­tains de­tails that re­flect the his­tory of the build­ing. There are two wings to the ho­tel: one has mod­ernly fur­nished rooms, while the other wings’ rooms fol­low au­then­tic tra­di­tions. Book rooms in the lat­ter for a bona fide ex­pe­ri­ence.

LEFT The parish church of San Gio­vanni Bat­tista was built in 1668-1697, and can be viewed from the win­dows of Palazzo Gam­boni
