The
Experience

The agriturismo has been sculpted out of the 11th-century convent, using the principles of eco-bio architecture. Cows peer from sheds as you arrive, chickens, geese and sheep bustle. The main house stands against wooded hills; beyond are convent, outhouses, orchards and barns. Anna is a darling, so welcoming and kindly informal that you feel at home the second you arrive. One of the main treats is the taster menu, a chance for the gourmet in you to tuck into delicious local delicacies from a talented cook. The nine bedrooms are well-sized, uncluttered and original, all wood, stone and bold colours; bathrooms are modern and fabulous. Heat comes from a wood-burner integrated with solar panels; cork and coconut ensure the soundproofing of walls. There’s horse riding nearby, and they now organise weekends for families, encouraging children to spend time with the animals, and run free in eight hectares of gardens, orchards and woods… hard to imagine a better place for a get-away-from-it-all weekend! Bergamo, midway between Lake Como and Lake Iseo, is a cultural treat.

Reviews

A charming, unpretentious and most friendly ambience. The hosts and all the staff were amazingly warm, approachable and helpful; unobtrusive yet almost guessing one's questions and requests. The chef is excellent. We lacked nothing and would heartily recommend the Casa Clelia

Irene, Oxford

We booked this at last minute and when we arrived there was a large party of Italians having an al fresco lunch but we were welcomed warmly. We had quite a small room at the back but it was comfortable. Only problem was there were lots of barking dogs so had to close window. Choose a room at the front if you can. Delicious home cooked tasting menu - especially good was the risotto with a red wine reduction. Would definitely go back. It's a beautiful building and we breakfasted in a lovely stone room - full of character.

Briony, Tonbridge

What a lovely surprise hidden in the hills behind Bergamo! I had an early flight to UK next morning & wanted to stay nearby with our dogs. Anna was an amazing hostess. We had a lovely evening meal made from local produce, carefully explained, accompanied by local beer & wine, & followed by a walk through the orchard. The bedroom was excellent, with a fabulous bathroom. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay & will definitely return.

Local points of interest from Anna Minonzio

  • Casa Clelia sorge immersa nei boschi ai piedi del Monte Canto nel paese di Sotto il Monte.Prima alla vista si offre la casa padronale Casa Clelia Virtual Tour risalente al 1600, più oltre, il confine dei frati dell'XI secolo e poi l'area rurale.
  • Un complesso edilizio vario ed articolato che é tornato allo splendore di un tempo grazie al restauro conservativo che ne ha valorizzato la storia secolare.
  • Casa Clelia ha a cuore il benessere psico-fisico dei suoi ospiti. È per questa ragione che si è scelto di ristrutturare gli edifici seguendo i canoni dell'architettura bioecologica.
  • Ambienti sani in armonia con il contesto naturale, recupero dell'aspetto originario del convento e utilizzo di materiali eco-compatibili.
