Parco Monte Barro Hostel
Since September 2013, thanks to the new management of Legambiente, you can spend the night at the Hermitage of Monte Barro. From here you can enjoy the beauties of this Regional Natural Park, with breathtaking views over Lake Como and the surrounding mountains and lakes of the Brianza. This protected natural environment also offers a rich cultural background in history, archeology and biodiversity.
Through the management of this hostel, our association wants to show that a different way of doing business, which is environmentally friendly and sustainable, is possible and feasible.
The Parco Monte Barro Hostel has been recognized as a sustainable tourist facility from the Italian network TurismoBellezzaNatura, thanks to the many sustainable and environmentally friendly practices which are used to offer its services.
The hostel, which has 48 beds, is divided into two parts: the Orchid section, with rooms for 2, 3 or 4 people (all rooms with their own bathroom and shower) and the Squirrel section, with rooms for 2 or 3 people with its own washbasins along with communal toilets and showers on the main floor. The Squirrel section also has a kitchen and a dining room for self-prepared meals. Most of the hostel’s rooms have a private balcony.
All guests have access to a meeting room for 30 people and an auditorium with 99 seats equipped with a stage for performances and a projector for watching movies. The hostel is open to families, individuals and organized groups. There is also the possibility of reserving an area (or even the entire property) for training events, meetings and conferences.
During the year, in cooperation with the social cooperative Eliante, educational activities in nature for schools are arranged. In addition, Legambiente and the hostel organize hikes, seminars and trainings, cultural events etc..
The hostel also has an agreement with the Eremo Restaurant, located in the same building, which offers the typical products of this region for lunch or dinner.
