I went for my 40th and it was a great place with stunning views.

It was quiet and peaceful and secure.

The apartment is really interesting and based on a nautical theme.

It is essential to have a car to get about.

I hired a speedboat from mennagio and it was great to pull up at the villa in it.

The company who manage it where brilliant and returned my deposit without question.

If you want a beautiful place where you can get some groceries in and chill out this is it. The location views of the lake are beautiful and it was great to see the occasional boat passing by and admiring the villa.

I think only a few of the apartments are rentals and so I didn't see anyone else really whilst I was there's which was great.

More suitable for adult single travellers or couples as only one double bed.

I would highly recommend and hope to return sometime.

Feast for the eyes!

  • 4 of 5

It truly was a beautiful location and was a very relaxing week. The only down side was there wasn't enough to do, maybe others will enjoy that depends on what you want. The other downside was the security is quite high so lots of doors and gates to lock and unlock.

we visited lots of villages but Como is worth a visit and if your going for lunch or dinner go further into the town we found an amazing restaurant that the local workers used, we had lunch with wine for 26 euros sorry can not remember the name but worth exploring.
