Parco Monte Barro
Between the green landscapes of the Brianza, its surrounding lakes and the Alps, lies the new centre for ecological living: The Parco Monte Barro Hostel.
"This trip to Europe was a really great idea ... At the end of last June I accompanied Zelda from Milan to Bellagio where we met Gerald and Sara accommodated at the Hotel Grand Bretagne...
The following day, returning to the city, the Italian driver insisted for us to visit the Grand Hotel Monte Barro, who has praised for the amazing view from up there you could see. The climb in the car lasted at least an hour, but it was worth it. Arrived at the Hotel we sat outdoors on a terrace overhanging, with a lovely view of small lakes. Zelda was enthusiastic."
Francis Scott Fitzgerald (Great Gatsby)
letter to Maxwell. Paris, July 12 1921.
"There are places of unique beauty and still undiscovered. The Park of Monte Barro is one of them. Breathtaking views, beautiful vegetation and flora, valuable archaeological findings, testimonies of the rural world, practice ground for mountaineering and much more are waiting for you just a few miles from home.” From “VIVERE Monza Como Lecco e Brianza” magazine, number 77 (September 2013)
The Parco Monte Barro Hostel is located next to the Hermitage of Monte Barro. Its central position in the park (at 750 meters above sea level, with sweeping views over the Brianza lakes and the Eastern branch of Lake Como) and its proximity to some areas of cultural interest make the Hermitage a perfect venue for accommodation, excursions, educational activities and conferences. As well as running the hostel, Legambiente and Eliante organise environmental education activities aimed at
schools and groups of adults.
The hostel has a total capacity of 48 beds. It is divided into two sections. The Orchid area has rooms with up to four beds, all equiped with their own bathroom. On the other hand, the Squirrel section has single, double and triple bedrooms with shared bathrooms. This area has a fully equipped kitchen and a dining room ideal for self-catering.
