One of the best locations in town!!!!!
About the Manager
Guestbook comments from the manager
Just to let you know that we had a wonderful time in the above property. It was perfect for us being so close to the centre of town. We just had to park the car and leave it there, walk to the ferry and not worry about finding a parking space, or paying to park. As this apartment is on the 4th floor, it gave us lovely views over the lake, and the lift was brilliant, saving us having to hike up several flights of stairs after a long tiring day out. The apartment had everything we needed, the beds were comfortable, and the pillows were brilliant. We often mark accommodation down for having insufficient or hard uncomfortable pillows, this place really came up to the mark on both counts. We really appreciated the welcome pack and the prosecco was lovely. Just one thing we would have appreciated – some instructions how to work the tv/satellite box. It was a bit of a challenge working out which remote controller was which, and how to get the tv into the correct input to receive the satellite. We only bothered because we thought there might be football on but in the event there was very little available that we could understand or access, but we were at least able to watch bbc world service and keep up to date with the news.
Your office team were one of the best we have encountered where we have booked through an agency. On arrival we were made very welcome, given coffee and access to your toilet facilities and best of all, the apartment was ready so we were given the keys right away, even though we were several hours early. We had a problem with the toll road on our journey and one of your staff very helpfully tried to get this paid online for us. Unfortunately the reference had not been loaded so she was unable to do it, but talked us through the process so that we could make this payment before we left. All the staff were really welcoming and friendly, as well as efficient.
If we ever revisit the Italian lakes area we would have no hesitation in using your agency again.

One of the best locations in town!!!!!
We didn’t have a huge budget, and we just wanted to be somewhere central. Ok, it isn’t the most modern, but the kitchen is brand new, and the furniture and beds were fine. We didn’t mind not having complete luxury because we were out all day exploring. We loved having breakfast on the balcony in the morning, and literally rolling out of bed and walk 1 minute to the Piazza! What could be more convenient!
Activity and Interests
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” .
Other Activities: Menaggio Golf Club
Golf: There are Golf clubs around Lake Como: The Cadenabbia & Menaggio Golf Club celebrating 100 years this year and 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. Tel: +39 344 321 03. Green Fees: Weekdays EU 55, Weekends and Holidays EU 70 Euros; Golf Cart Rental EU 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).
There is also a first class Golf Course at Varesse for those staying nearer to the Lake Maggorie area.
Ski: 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 resort is Madesimo toward the Splugen Pass, which is approx. 1 hr 20 min. by car.
