Hi, Thanks for letting us stay in your property in Menaggio. It was very

comfortable and the view from the balcony was amazing. We couldn't

have been better placed for getting around the lake and the countryside.

Just perfect

  • 5 of 5

Apartment has everything you need for your holiday and the view from the terrace is to die for. Menaggio is ideal for exploring the lake and surrounding areas by bus and ferry, there is no need for a car. Plenty of local shops including bakery, delis, greengrocer, butcher and supermarket. Toni and the team were very helpful.

Spacious well equipped apartment with a gorgeous lakefront balcony

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here for 6 nights and enjoyed using the ferries (nearby ) to explore the Lake Como communities.

We loved walking around scenic Menaggio and found splendid dining, wines and gelato. There was a farmers market while we were there as well as an artisan bazaar. The apartment was a perfect spot for us and we heartily recommend it.

Heavenly balcony, great apartment.

  • 5 of 5

A fabulous apartment, spacious enough for our family of four. Dishwasher, large fridge freezer and washing machine made our stay much easier. The large, private balcony was the highlight for us. The views are simply breathtaking. We dined on the balcony most evenings and swam in the lake daily - the little door to the lake was a gem. Make sure you ask for the key! The weather was quite changeable however the balcony provided enough cover during hot sunshine or rain. We also watched spectacular storms inside the apartment with the large patio doors open.We were pleasantly surprised with Menaggio - everything you need for a perfect holiday. Well stocked supermarket, lovely bakery selling delicious breakfast pastries a butcher and plenty of restaurants and cafes. No car needed as the ferry and bus service are frequent . The appartment is a few minutes walk from the ferry in one direction and the village centre the other.Toni was on hand to sort out any queries - friendly and helpful. Would definitely return.

Heavenly holiday

  • 5 of 5

Perfect isn't enough to describe our stay. The property is immaculate... bedroom with wardrobe, bath with nice shower and hot water, living space with tons of light and open to kitchen. The kitchen had everything you needed including oven, stove, big refrigerator, and cooking supplies. There is a nice washer as well and a drying rack (was perfect for traveling with our baby because lots of laundry!). There is a spacious balcony with dining area to relax at night and enjoy wine and views. The location is amazing, a five minute walk to the ferry in one direction and five minute walk to the beautiful public pool in the other with a lakeside promenade connecting the two. Close to restaurants, bars, groceries. We stayed for three weeks with our baby and was the perfect spot to enjoy the lake, explore, drive to Switzerland, hike... we had a rental car and there was never a problem finding a close spot and we were visiting during a busy time. Tony is extremely friendly and helpful and assisted is with anything we needed while we were there. We didn't want to leave!! I can't say enough good things... you will truly enjoy your stay!!!

Menaggio Magic

  • 5 of 5

Just had 10 days here with my wife and we loved every minute. It is just the best location you can ask for. The balcony is huge and is right next to the lake with views to Bellagio and Varenna. It is ideal for getting ferries around the mid-lake towns, the apartment has the ferry port only a couple of minutes walk one way and Menaggio centre the same the other way. The apartment has plenty space for 2 people and the kitchen is modern and well stocked. We ate most nights on the balcony as we didn't want to miss the pleasure of relaxing with a nice meal and wine, just enjoying the view. Menaggio is not big but still has plenty restaurants and cafes. An after-dinner stroll into the centre plaza for an ice-cream, then along the promenade to watch the locals fishing is a must. Toni is very friendly and helpful for anything about the apartment or things to see. The temp there was 30C plus, but the gazebo roof kept the sun off. The private beach under the balcony is available to use, make sure you get the key from Toni to the basement door to access it. The best time to use it is late evening as any debris on the water seems to drift away by then.

Top marks for Tony and magical Menaggio!

  • 5 of 5

We booked three homes here for a family celebration in this residence and could not have been more comfortable. The residence was right next to the water and located right in the village so we did not need to use our car as the property has excellent access to the ferry plus at night we walked to the restaurants and could enjoy a glass of wine or two without the need to drive or take a cab. We also made use of the huge terrace during the day to sunbathe and try our hand at some italian cooking! Special thanks to Tony who could not have been more charming, kind or friendly on arrival. Despite our limited Italian Tony spoke some English so we communicated without issue. Will definitely return.
