Breathtaking views from this stunning house

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic holiday in this beautifully appointed house. The accommodation is excellent, providing everything we could need and plenty of space for our three teenagers. We loved the outdoor terraces and garden. The shared pool was generally very quiet and an excellent spot to enjoy stunning views and late afternoon sun. Highly recommended.

Wonderful rental on Lake Como

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful three week stay at Casa Paradisio. The pictures do not do justice to the incredible views from both balconies. The apartment was clean and very comfortable with all the conveniences that made it feel like home. Barrie met us in Menaggio and showed us around the town. His restaurant, parking and shopping information was very helpful. He was very responsive when I e-mailed with a couple of questions. During part of our stay we had 6 people at the apartment and we never felt crowded or on top of each other. There is ample room for everyone to relax. During our three week stay we went on three different day hikes, took the ferry to Varenna and Bellagio, took day trips to Locarno and Lugano and St. Moritz in Switzerland and spent many wonderful evenings enjoying the local cuisine. By far, our favorite activity was sitting on the patio with a glass of wine enjoying the view. We would love to come back one day.

The best to be found on Lake Como

  • 5 of 5

The apartment totally lives up to the description. It is clean and bright and spacious and the views of the lake are completely out of this world. The manager goes above and beyond to make sure that everything for the holiday makers is perfect -- nothing is a problem and I would certainly recommend the apartment to anybody looking for an exceptional address on Lake Como. Nestled up on the hillside above Menaggio everything is quiet and peaceful, but five minutes in the car and you are down on the lakeside absorbing all the pleasures of this picturesque and lively little town. There are restaurants to suit all tastes and for food lovers there are plenty of them with exquisite menus. We are already looking forward to returning next year.

Beautiful views

  • 4 of 5

The views from this property are nothing short of stunning. The property itself is in very good condition, bright airy and modern. The kitchen is well appointed. Older customers or those less fit would probably do well to hire a car as the walk up to the accommodation is 25 minutes up hill. Barrie, the accommodation manager was very flexible and helpful.

Paradise on the lake

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our time here. Casa Paradiso really does sum up the home with a spectacuar view to wake up to each day. we never wanted to leave. Breakfast on the terrace and dinner in the ample private garden were highlights of the stay. Menaggio itself has all you need for your stay as is only a 5 minute drive from the home although the walk took us a little longer, we used the taxis in the village to take us back up the hill! That said the 2 local trattorias and pizzeria came in handy as easily walkable from the home, A special mention to Barrie and Julie were the perfect hosts meeting us on arrival and made sure we were settled in and shared plenty of local tips from restaurants to hiring a boat and it was reassuring that they were available for us throughout our stay at the end of the phone whenever they needed us. I will definitely recommend this home and hope to return next year for sure.

Beautiful view

  • 4 of 5

As the other reviews say Casa Paradiso is one of six town houses in this complex, and has a beautiful view over lake Como. There is also a communal pool higher up on the hill behind the townhouses. We found the private garden great as we had 2 young children with us and it was great to allow them some outside space. The negative we found with the apartment was that it was within a complex and there was a set of neighbours that yelled at us for the kids to be quiet, when they were laughing and playing in the garden at 5pm as the neighbours wanted to sleep. This impacted on our stay and meant we ensured we were out of the apartment for pretty much our entire stay and were really only there morning and evening. The apartment itself is however is nice and comfortably slept the 6 of us.

After some missed calls with the managers we were met at the rendezvous point and drove in convoy to the apartment. The managers were helpful and told us how to fix the electricity if it was to go and where the local supermarket was.

A quick note, when we booked the apartment the map showed the apartment in the wrong place. It is in Menaggio not near Como.

Owner's Response: Thank you Bronwyn for your feedback and making the effort to contact us. I am glad you enjoyed your stay here at our home. It was nice to meet you. I am a little taken back and surprised regarding your comments regarding an issue with one of the neighbours. I was in contact with you during the course of your stay as well as on departure and no issue was ever raised of any kind of issue with our neighbours at any time. Having read your comments here i spoke with the neighbours who advised me that one of your children had been extremely noisy during the course of the day for several days in the garden and around the pool area and in fact the neighbour confirmed that he only spoke with your family only on the very last evening of your departure and had chosen until that point to ignore the situation. Hopefully if ever any guests have any issues whatsoever we always encourage our guest to call, sms or email me so we can help resolve immediately and ensure we make ourselves available seven days a week throughout the course of the stay as we had done for your stay, Bronwyn. I only mention this as considering all the other reviews here and feedback we have received over the years since offering the holiday home as a vacation rental since 2008, this feedback is very much out of character from all our other reviews. Indeed until now, we have never received any kind of issue or complaint in regard to our neighbours. All feedback and reviews received has been 100% positive as you can read below from every other guest who has stayed. Thank you also for your note regards the map. I have double checked the site and the map is correct detailing the home's location in Menaggio. Perhaps when you previously checked the map, as owners direct have been updating the site recently, there may have been a temporary issue but none that we had been made aware of. The property is located in Menaggio, the principal and most sought after village on the lake, as per the map, description and any correspondence just to confirm.

It is part of a small group of houses and apartments (8 in total) that share a common driveway, security and a pool with 180 degree breathtaking views of the lake from Bellagio to Villa La Gaeta instantly recognisable from the Bond film Casino Royale. Wifi, ipad docking and bbc world service included. Pretty piazzas, ancient churches,lakeside walks. A shingle beach at the lidos, cafe culture, little narrow picture postcard streets, lazy lunches with local delicacies represent a typical day out in Menaggio.Take the water and hire a boat hire for a memorable day out are just are few examples of life here. But remember, if a relaxing break with nothing more than a book and glass of wine is your idea of bliss, doing nothing much is a theme of lakeside living. Menaggio is the provincial lake side village and incorporates almost every conceivable amenity for your stay here on the lake from bank to supermarket, fruit and veg stores, geletaria, internet cafe, geletaria's, lake fishmonger, cafes, restaurants, beach, ferry and of course wonderful lakeside scenery.
