Great location with amazing views!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our time in Lenno it was so central to all the great areas to sightsee. We loved the apartment, the views from our balcony were breathtaking and the beds were very comfy. We have 2 kids they are 14yrs & 11yrs old and they thoroughly enjoyed our Italian adventure. Barrie and Julie were so helpful advising us on best places to visit so that we got the most out of our trip. We will definitely be back!

Excellent location

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is as described with a fantastic view overlooking the lake. The apartment is also close to a good supermarket, the village centre, bus route and the ferry. Lenno is a lovely quiet village, which was a joy to return to from the more touristy places.

Barrie and Julie were excellent hosts who responded to all questions promptly and also helped with food on arrival when our flight was delayed when we arrived quite late.

Lovely location would definitely recommend.

Beautiful apartment with beautiful view.

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is very comfortable with everything you need and more. Incredibly clean. We spent most of the week on the terrace just enjoying the beautiful view. The apartment is in a convenient location. Within walking distance to shops, cafes, the Villa Balbianello and the ferry. It is exactly what an Italian vacation home should be.

Breathe taking

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful apartment with a breathe taking view from the balcony. Barry and Julie went out of their way to help, including getting some shopping ready for us when we arrived. I was a bit concerned when we were told there was no air conditioning but found later that it was not needed as there is a lovely breeze coming in from the lake. You can get the "dotto" train from Lenno to Menagio which runs along side of the lake. Lovely market on Tuesdays in the village square. All in all a fabulous holiday in an amazing apartment.

Relaxing time on the lake

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here as part of a winter tour of the lake and were delighted with our choice of accommodation. The home was ideal for our needs as the ferry and bus services are within walking distance of the restaurants and bars. There is also a supermarket just a few minutes walk from the home. Other villages like Menaggio and Bellagio were pretty to visit but we felt Lenno boasted the prettiest lake front promenade and was not nearly as touristy (we only heard italian accents in Lenno as opposed to american ones in Bellagio for example)

We will miss waking up to the views looking out from the balcony and the magic of the lake from the living room from dawn to dusk. A big thank you to Barrie who oversaw the booking and met us on arrival. We booked directly with the owners and not via the site and saved over £100 on the stay! We would not hesitate to book this home and have recommended the home to friends.

Excellent apartment in a great location

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from a fantastic holiday based in this great apartment in Lenno. The view of the lake is not exaggerated, it really is stunning. We won't forget the chilled mornings and evenings sitting on the balcony taking in the view with either a coffee or glass of wine in hand :) Inside, the apartment is lovely - nicely furnished with everything you need for self catering (although we tended to eat out most nights as we were wanting to indulge!).

One of the best things about this apartment was its location. We had decided not to hire a car as we're both a little nervous driving abroad and didn't fancy the hassle. It took me a while to find a place that was in easy walking distance to all of the following; mini markets, restaurants & cafes, bars, places to swim and ferry & bus stop. The apartment couldn't be better placed for all of the above. It's even in easy walking distance to two of the most famous villas on the lake; Balbianello and Balbiano (which neither of us knew before booking so this was a bonus!). We spent time visiting Bellagio, Menaggio, Varenna and Argegno as well as chilling out at the various lidos and beaches.

A few tips: 1. The San Giorgio hotel at the end of the promenade in Lenno has a fantastic garden with an amazing lake view, great swimming and very comfy sunbeds! The hotel is family run and very friendly. Non-residents are welcome to take advantage of the garden and sunbeds as long as you buy some drinks throughout the day. They even stored our luggage for us after we'd checked out and had some hours to kill :)

2. A visit to the Villa Monastero gardens in Varenna is an absolute must. The peaceful serenity of the gardens towards the early evening and the panoramic view of the lake was one of the highlights of our holiday. Afterwards we had a lovely meal at a restaurant called 'Al Prato' in a small and peaceful square just set back from the lake front - highly recommended. Lovely food and a friendly and professional service.

Thanks to Barrie and Julie for being extremely accommodating before and during our stay. Barrie went out of his way to pick us up from Argegno on our arrival when he found out we were heading to a ferry stop with a longer walk than we'd realised (this saved us from a great deal of exertion from an already quite long journey from Venice!). On the way we were provided with lots of very useful tips and advice on the local area.

Overall a thoroughly enjoyable holiday and we hope to return one day.

Special interest holidays:

Lenno is home to some of the most picturesque scenery in Italy, never mind Lake Como (featured recently on the Holiday programme, BBC1, November 2006). Artists have visited Lake Como in their droves over many years.

Please ask about recommended websites for courses.

Cookery courses also available here in the village.


As well as the secluded shingle beach, just 2 minutes from the apartment, a man made sandy beach is situated just 10 minutes walk from the apartment. Lido di lenno is the perfect position to enjoy glorious lake views whilst waiters bring you your favourite drink beneath tented marquees as you lay on the beach. This beach, like the restaurants in Italy, is extremely child friendly.


The apartment is just over 1 hour from Malpensa & Linate Airports in Milan. Please enquire for flight operators and is approximately 1 and a 1/2 hours from Bergamo Airport. Fly with BA, Easyjet, Fly BMI or Ryanair. Car hire is not essential as there is a waterstop for the boat and coach stop close to the apartment however we do recommend car hire to help you enjoy all of the beautiful places you can visit in and around Lake Como.


2 minutes walk to the secluded shingle beach in front of the apartment, the famous lido di lenno beach is only 10 minutes walk from here you can catch the waterboat (5 minutes) to Villa Balbianello, probably the most romantic scenery in Lake Como as featured in the recent James Bond 007 film, Casino Royale. The water ferry stop is just 2 minutes walk from the apartment for access to all parts of the lake. Please ask for preferred day trips in order to get the most from your stay.

Further Details:

The village is just a short walk to the local bars and restuarants. We will be happy to recommend our favourite diners, just ask!

The nearest supermarket can also be found here in the village.

The local bank is also just a short walk from your home. Boat hire can be arranged on request. Supermarket with bakery, pizzeria, mini market all 3 minutes walk or less from your home so car hire really isn't necessary! Lift to the apartment means the accommodation is suitable for elderly and infirm guests.
