The Penthouse Belvedere

  • 4 of 5

Great Location and wonderful View. Apartment was a good value.

The booking was onerous. 2 International money transfers was expensive and complicated.

The Apartment stay could have been much better with more pillows for the bedroom.

The Bathrooms were dimly lit and only one set of towels.

The Apartment description said a washer and dryer but the dryer function on the washer didn't work.

Enjoyed the stay, but small improvements and easier booking process would raise the evaluation to 5 star.

penthouse with lake Como view

  • 5 of 5

It was a very spacious penthouse with 3 nice coloured rooms opening into each other and overlooking the lake, quiet and save area, house is situated in the very nice small town Menaggio which can be reached by foot (but easier to take the car). Description of the facilities was fitting and Gemma the manager was very kind and brought us some missing glasses for our New Year champaign and a pot for tea and coffee to make this in a german style. A boot ferry is starting in Menaggio and Varenna and Bellagio can easily be visited.

We liked our stay very much and really can recommend this penthouse.

My husband and I absolutely loved the apartment and everything about it. I had arranged the trip to meet up with friends from Australia who we had not seen for years. With all the ooh's and arrh's of the view and the relaxed, serene feel you have made there, it was hard to leave.

I know we will be back, even if it is just the two of us.

This was our second trip to Lake Como and not the last.

Penthouse Apartment Menaggio with Panoramic views

  • 5 of 5

We made a short stop over in Venice before driving on to Menaggio which was an amazing experience. We liaised with Gemma before arrival and were met in Menaggio and shown to our apartment. There is a garage with the apartment but we chose to park safely outside the block. The lift which is useful when you have shopping and luggage goes straight into the living area . When we first walked into the apartment we knew immediately we had it so right, absolutely stunning! Three good sized bedrooms (all with fans), lovely lounge with Sky TV, an amazing fully equipped kitchen and large dining area and of course good Wifi. The property was clean and well maintained. The views are breathtaking, two balconies one with sun beds and the other table and chairs. Every morning we would sit and have breakfast with the sun dancing across Lake Como. The pool has amazing views over the Lake with sun all day.

It takes about 20 minutes to walk downhill into Menaggio to a lovely town with all amenities, supermarket, bars, restaurants, shops, chemist, petrol station. Highly recommend hiring a speed boat for an hour on the lake or to take the ferry over to Bellagio. We also had a day trip to the large town of Como and popped over the border to Switzerland for supper.

The Penthouse Apartment is not only a fabulous base for your visit to Lake Como but enables you to relax and feel rested. We would definitely recommend it.

A big thank you to all the team that we have corresponded with and the excellent communication.

Penthouse pleasure

  • 5 of 5

We reserved this home as part of a two centre stay.

Just as the other reviews mention, this home is truly a high spec apartment with unforgettable 180 degrees views. Italian apartments were excellent to deal with booking the home and even organised a welcome pack for our arrival. I agree the lift was a tad slow but came in handy on arrival and departure to transport the luggage and all my husbands golf clubs! The local golf club in Menaggio was much appreciated by my son and husband! The pool was surprisingly quiet especially during the week so we made good use of it. The home is a 5 minute drive or 20 minute walk to the village so we are glad we hired a car but there is a bar, a couple of restaurants and pizzeria available 10 minutes walk from the home so did not need to use the car each time we ventured out. Often we cooked in as the kitchen is a housewives dream, so huge and a real focal point for the family during our stay. Excellent wifi and satellite which came in handy when it rained one of the afternoons during our stay. Thank you Gemma for all your help on arrival meeting us and sharing tips on the best restaurants and places to view, a little local knowledge goes a long way! All in all a wonderful holiday we will remember for many years to come.

Serenity Now

  • 5 of 5

A really nice property with great views, and a rare working cook's kitchen. My wife is a cook and likes to take advantage of the local fare in order to whip up dishes that are indigenous to the region. It's usually a struggle because most homes we stay in are ill-equipped kitchen-wise. Not this one. It had everything she needed, plus enough room that the kitchen was like home: it became the hub of our activities at the apartment.

The home was clean and comfortable, the wi-fi was better than expected, answers to our questions were immediate and thorough. Our only surprise was, when the weather heated up, we went to turn on the air conditioning and...uh...there ISN'T any! The home IS supplied with three portable fans, but just be aware that you'll be a little warmer than you might have anticipated if the weather warms up.

The designated parking spot inside the gate is a daunting task because of the sloped parking lot; much easier to just park outside the structure. The elevator right to your door is convenient when hauling luggage or groceries, and the pool, despite being a common area, rarely featured more than my son and I shrieking from the cold plunge first thing in the morning.

All in all, a very good choice of home, with quick access to any destinations in Lake Como. Menaggio itself is very relaxed and pleasant, a less touristy hub than some of the other towns. We'd recommend it to anybody looking for a nice place to stay.
