Stunning Views, Perfect Location, Walk To All Facilities



Updated: 12-Oct-2016
Lakefront Apartment in Menaggio, Lake Como, Italy - Free wi-fi included!

This beautiful truly waterfront apartment is located in one of the oldest and more prestigious buildings of Menaggio, the Grand Hotel. The apartment has been completely newly renovated last year with high quality finishes, like wooden floor, modern kitchen, bathroom with venetian stucco and a large shower with "Bisazza" mosaic. It is located in a very practical position where everything can be reached within walking distance: shops, supermarkets, restaurants, coffee bars, public beach with swimming pool, lake promenade, ferry boat, bus station and many other facilities. The second oldest Golf Club in Italy (1906) is located in Menaggio, just five minutes drive away from the apartment. The apartment is very quiet and relaxing and its balcony offers stunning views of the lake and the surrounding mountains and it is one of the best places to enjoy the beauty and tranquility of Lake Como. For your comfort, now free wi-fi is available at our apartment.

Wonderful property and owners

  • 5 of 5

We have now had the pleasure of staying in this unit three times; September 2015, March 2016 and April 2016. If we could move in permanently, we would. The unit itself is wonderful and offers all the comforts you could possibly want. But the view, location, sound of the water lapping when you open the French doors to the balcony and Deborah and Susy really set it apart and make it extra special. Our son was 5 months old at our first visit and Deborah and Susy kindly arranged for a baby cot to be set up for him (the mattress of which is fantastic!). As he grew, they added a highchair too and Susy even gave him a little bear to remember Como by. The unit is impeccably clean, reachable by elevator (which makes it easy with a stroller), quiet, very quick walk to center (all by sidewalk) and to the ferry, no car needed, but underground parking is available in the building, wifi is fast – it's really hard to come up with something to fault! On our last visit, my parents joined us as well and it was still very roomy with 4 adults and a 1 year old. Menaggio itself is our favorite among the towns on the lake and is a perfect base. Highly recommend.

Perfect in every respect

  • 5 of 5

Personal welcome by Susy at the bus stop. Fantastic views, perfect location for walking, restaurants, groceries, bus and boat. Great tips on where to hike, what to do and see. Couldn't have been better. After visiting other villages on the central lake, we were delighted to have selected Menaggio and this apartment. We look forward to a return visit.

Great place, fantastic location

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful apartment in a fantastic location overlooking Lake Como. Deborah and Suzie gave us a great welcome and send off and tips to keep cool in the exceptionally hot summer! If you want a central property in Menaggio, overlooking the lake, then this is the place to be. Thanks again for a lovely holiday.

Stunning Views, perfect location, luxury apartment

  • 5 of 5

The last day of our holiday and we can hardly bear to leave this lovely apartment. It took us 3 years to reach Lake Comos, after cancelling 2 other holidays due to my husbands health issues. But we made it and we have loved everything. Menaggio suited our families' requirements perfectly, we have seen the other resorts around the lake but would not have preferred them. We enjoyed the family feel here, mixing with locals and holidaymakers alike.

The views from the apartment have taken our breaths away. The accommodation itself was spacious and extremely comfortable. I love interior design and I appreciate the high standards this apartment offers.

It may well have been the last holiday we will spend with our daughters aged 18 and 21 for a while, but this place has given us some really special memories.

Thanks Susy, we loved meeting you and you could not have done more for us.

As I said, we don't want to leave, but we will definitely return.


For a lovely holiday !!! xxxx

Lovely week in Menaggio

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful apartment which is exactly as it appears in promo. The location was perfect - right beside the ferry terminal and a very short walk to the main piazza. Susie and Deborah were wonderful to deal with and gave us all of the information we needed to have a great week. It was spotlessly clean and their recommendations for restaurants sights were spot on.

lovely week on Lake Como

  • 4 of 5

Just returned from a lovely week at this beautiful apartment. It is exactly as it looks in the photos but better. The views of the lake and its surroundings are stunning - mysterious when the clouds creep over the mountains, enchanting when the morning sun bounces off the lake and dazzles the viewer, interesting when the ferry boats come and go from the near-by jetty... there is a forever changing scene.

It is delightful for a couple and no doubt very good for two couples or a couple with (civilised) children! It is a civilised kind of place. It is very convenient for shops, ferries to anywhere on the lake, and for a short walk into Menaggio for a drink or dinner. That said we mostly cooked in, as the kitchen was great, the local wine cheap, and the flat spacious and inviting. One minor gripe might be the mattresses in one of the bedrooms - too soft for me - but that apart this is a superb place to have a holiday.
