Guestbook comments from the owner

Thanks HHH for a really great time on Lake Como! Casa Helen & Charlie was perfect for reaching the golf course and Menaggio lakefront which is what we wanted from our holiday home. The property interior was really high quality and the sunny terrace was a super sun trap too :) The road was so easy to get everywhere from and we had a great time driving around and catching the ferry across the lake. We can highly recommend the golf club, Lido and Villa attractions. The restaurants were also very good and our faves were the Barcola restaurant just off the road on the way to Porlezza + the piazza restaurant called Sao Paolo in Menaggio and La Darsena in Tremezzo.

Thank you again HHH for all your support and great service!
