Inside, the contemporary duplex is fully-equipped to offer carefree stays; with free WIFI and air-conditioning on hand to complement the beautifully styled living space and sleeping accommodation.

The restful open plan living area with flat screen SAT TV paints an inviting scene in which guests can enjoy guilt-free leisure and pleasure moments together. Ideally-suited for wining and dining a holiday away too, the floor-to-ceiling glazing here also enables guests to take in direct lake views from both the sitting and dining areas (which can comfortably sit 5-6).

With the fully-fitted contemporary kitchen perfect for rustling up a tasty snack to a full-blown dinner party, guests can easily play host within this lovely home-away-from-home.

Within the chic carefree flow of the apartment, two spacious double bedrooms enable couples and groups to easily enjoy a good night’s sleep. The master bedroom also offers a luxury en suite shower. Both benefit from a wardrobe too, whilst a single sofa bed to the living area offers added flexibility to accommodate a 5th guest if needed. Upon request a baby cot (EU 20) and adult single camp bed can also be hired (EU 85).

Oozing the same tempting spa-style ambience as the master en-suite, the family bathroom is fitted with a bath tub and separate shower cubicle; perfect for enjoying a reviving morning shower or a tranquil moment in the tub. The indoor Jacuzzi also offers the perfect excuse to soak up some holiday relaxation, whatever the season.

Perfectly complementing the beautiful open plan living and dining space, guests can enjoy the captivating hillside surroundings from the covered outdoor lake view terrace. Furnished with a sitting area with deck chairs and a sunny lake view lawn with alfresco BBQ dining area, the scene is set for carefree daytime and evening enjoyment.

The large sunny private garden truly offers a delightful setting in which to relax on the chic sun loungers and take in the breathtaking views of the lake and resort town of Bellagio. The iconic backdrop serves as the perfect vista to accompany morning coffees and sunset aperitifs, as well as chilled-out BBQs and romantic alfresco dinner parties.

For added convenience the modern holiday duplex also offers private laundry and ironing facilities, as well as a free parking space and a garage for guests’ use.

The residence will very shortly benefit from a beautiful outdoor infinity swimming pool (shared by just 10 apartments in total). Please enquire today!

Menaggio is a picturesque village nestled in a convenient central position on the lake. It is a historical lake side town with many quaint neighbourhoods which extend north along the lake and up into the green hills and valleys. Menaggio offers stunningly beautiful views of Lake Como and the majestic mountains which surround it overlooked by the Alps to the North.

There is a fine selection of restaurants, delis, fresh grocers and of course delicious gelato and pizza! To keep you moving and fit while on vacation: play a round of golf at the infamous Menaggio & cadenabbia Golf Club, mini golf, hiking trails, mountain biking, free climbing, swimming and a new orienteering field all located in stunning locations -these are just a few possibilities offered to you in and around Menaggio. There is a museum dedicated to Leonardo da Vinci at the new “Lido Giardino” and in the Val Senagra Park, a museum featuring the value of antique buildings, artisan and peasant objects and creations. Other culturally rich events including music, fireworks, public markets and local festivals are to be enjoyed.

Menaggio’s tourist office is situated in the main square, Piazza Garibaldi, offers a great deal of information detailing what’s going on in and around the lakes, sightseeing, history and sporting activities.

During the summer the area boasts fantastic opportunities for many activities including mountain biking, cycling, horse riding, walking, many water sports including kite surfing, fishing, tennis, and of course golf at the historic Mennagio & Cadenabbia Golf Club. The Ferries run from Menaggio to both the North and South of Lake Come making it an ideal centre for sightseeing.

We spent 2 weeks in this appartment. Sofa was so dirty I did not dare to sit down. However next day was the cover cleaned. The shower doors were loose and dangerous to close. RAI2 did not work I could not watch footbal E Championship, the remote controle for gate was broken I could not leave garage in the day I wanted go home. Anyhow nice lake view, nice set up but such deficient can not happen in app at 2500 EUR

Situated to the sunny Menaggio hillside in Plesio, couples and groups are within easy driving distance of the prestigious Menaggio & Cadenabbia Golf Club, the Loveno Tennis Club, the La Barcola Agroturismo, the main road to Lugano city and of course the lakeside centre of Menaggio.

A kid’s park, mini golf, power boat rental service, kayak hire and a fantastic family-friendly Lido (which offers discounted entry for guests!) can also be enjoyed.

Menaggio is also home to a romantic lakeside promenade, a buzzing cafe-lined piazza and a car and passenger ferry with frequent links to the other famous Central Lake resorts of Bellagio, Varenna and Cadenabbia.

The Central Lake is also home to a wealth of authentic restaurants, family-friendly Lidos, tennis and golf clubs and also opportunities for cookery lessons, wine tasting, sailing lessons, art classes and more!

A fast passenger ferry service also operates to Como city, whilst bus links also offer the perfect way to explore the western shore all the way to Como in the south, as well as the north of the lake and Lugano city (via Porlezza). Sightseers can also enjoy exploring the famous villas and botanical garden attractions of the Central Lake; whilst the water sports, hiking trails, extreme sports and close-by Italian Alp ski resorts offer the perfect daytime distraction for active guests and nature fans.

Additional Sport & Adventure Activities include:

Bike Rentals, Boat Rentals/Charters, Canoeing/Kayaking, Float Plane/Helicopter, Funicular Railway, Park, Public Transportation, Public Villas & Gardens and Rowing Boats.

Golf:

There are Golf clubs around Lake Como: The Menaggio & Cadenabbia Golf Club is Italy's oldest golf course. Established in 1907 with 18 holes Par 70, it is located above Menaggio near Croce, in Grandola ed Uniti, approx. 20 min. by car. Green Fees: Weekdays €55, Weekends and Holidays €70 Euros; Golf Cart Rental €36.

Restaurant Golf at the club serves fantastic food and is well recommended.. Guests are always welcome, please call beforehand to check course rules. Golf Club Menaggio: (Menaggio Como).

Skiing:

This beautiful lake region of Italy is not the best for skiing as you may imagine, despite its scenery, crisp air and near perfect visibilty and mountains capped in winter snow. It does however have Skiing opportunities at local resorts for a day out.

There is a small ski area on Mt. Lema, not more than 10 km from Lugano, but you have to be lucky to have enough snow for skiing. In Ticino, the local Swiss Canton, the best places to ski are probably either San Bernardino (south of the pass of the same name) or Airolo (south of Gotthard pass). Both are reachable in about 1 hour by car across the Swiss border.

There are direct trains to Airolo as well from Lugano and hence from Italian Stations. To S. Bernardino there is only a bus connection. For more snow try Andermatt (on the north side of Gotthard pass) which has normally good snow conditions and a good choice of runs.

The closest major ski resorts are Madesimo and St. Moritz toward the Splugen Pass, which is approx.100km.
