Guestbook comments from the owner
I am sorry it took so long for me to come with my feedback regarding our stay at Villa Louise.
For me was this was a ‘once in a life time’ vacation.
It was a reunion of 9 highschool friends from Indonesia.
Staying at Lake Como is part of our reunion tour.
After a long search at the internet, we chose Villa Louise.
The reality is that Villa Louise is everything as described at the website. It was a beautiful villa, clean and well kept.
The scenery was breath-taking, looking out to the beautiful Lake Como.
The staff were very helpful and reacted adequately and very pleasantly to our needs!
Also, the location of Villa Louise is centrally convenient; from there we made day- trips to Milaan,Torino , Venetie and to Switzerland.
Last but not least, the team of Happy Holiday Homes and the local team was just perfect.
Danillo and his staff are very helpful and the person we called at 01:30 am was also doing his best to help us find the way to the Villa.

This is a wonderful, wonderful holiday home. It is bright, airy, modern, clean, quiet, comfortable, spacious (there was ample room for our group of nine, with dining tables big enough for all of us inside the house and also outside on the patio), child-friendly (great swimming pool, game room downstairs); the kitchen is fully equipped, there is an ample supply of linens, towels, etc. But the best part is the views: from all the rooms, the patio, the lawn by the pool, looking east and south over the lake and the soaring mountains rising out of the lake, the views are breathtaking. And then of course there's the whole area to explore: hiking and walking trails, ferries on the lake, Belaggio, Menaggio, Varenna and the other little towns on the lake, shops, fine restaurants (everything from the local pizza parlor in Rezzonico to a Michelin-starred restaurant in Belaggio), gelatto (!), beautiful villas and gardens. We all loved every minute of our week at Villa Louise. It doesn't get any better.
Activity and Interests
Located just a 6 minute drive from Menaggio, guests are perfectly placed for making the most of the central lake! The picturesque resort town of Menaggio offers a wide selection of restaurants to savour alongside delicatessens, grocery shops, boutique shop-lined streets and sunny vibrant piazzas, which come alive with locals enjoying a morning cappuccino or evening aperitif. The idyllic lakeside leads northwards to a fantastic family-friendly lido and southwards to a car and passenger ferry service, ideal for reaching the Tremezzina shore, Bellagio and Varenna.
Menaggio and the surrounding central lake offer a wide range of activities, from power boat rental, sailing and windsurfing to hiking, cycling, tennis and golf. Tree-top climbing at the Jungle Raider Park, extreme sports at the Bellagio outdoor sports centre and skiing in Piani di Bobbio and Madesimo all offer more great distractions for thrill-seekers and sports enthusiasts.
Guests can also easily replenish their senses at the nearby Dolce Aqua day Spa in Lenno, after a memorable day of sightseeing in the beautiful villa attractions or in the nearby cities of Como, Milan and Lugano.
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.
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 Golf Club Menaggio beforehand to check course rules.
This beautiful lake region of Italy is not the best for skiing as you may imagine, despite its scenery, crisp air and near perfect visibility 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.
