I will certainly recommend your apartment to my clients and friends" Vicky Mcginnity, Tour De Force Travel-October 2007

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.

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.

Loved our stay here. A view to die for, the home is located right in the heart of the village so we used the ferry and bus to get around. Bellagio and Varenna were just a ferry ride away and very pretty to visit however Menaggio is a great central location with all amenities you need from the lido to shops and supermarket although we used the beach at the home most of the time and enjoyed an italian style bbq of an evening. Toni was the perfect host and italian apartments were very easy to deal with, payment via paypal and providing easy directions. Wifi worked well and came in useful when the sunshine turned to rain one afternoon! This is such a great location, have recommended to friends and will definitely return.

Cannot recommend this apartment enough. It was very clean and the location is fantastic for exploring menaggio or hoping on a ferry to one of the many other beautiful villages. The large terrace to the apartment is fantastic we never got bored of looking out at the amazing lakes having a morning coffee and a pastry. Everyone involved was really helpful and have no doubt that we will be visiting again. A truly beautiful place.
