Splendid location for exploring the Lake and towns around it. We even got to visit Switzerland which is a short enough drive away to Lugano. Apartment is less than 2 hours to Malpensa airport. Accommmodation in great condition. Pool lovely, well maintained and very clean.

Booking the accommodation was easy and the communications right up to arrival were excellent. The home was more than adequate for four persons, well equipped and importantly comfortable beds. Location and amenities were first class and the information provided was very handy.

We came to a brand new apartment with a nice balcony and a great view. We enjoyed the sunny mornings and the shady evenings. Lots of space "downstairs" for extra guests. Nice pool with the same fantastic view over the lake. Very fast, kind and friendly check-in and check-out.

Oh how we will miss that view!

  • 5 of 5

I think if the villa had been found lacking the view would still have given this a high score but the villa itself is one of the most spacious and well equipped we've stayed in, and we have stayed in quite a few.

The views out over the lake are superb. One of our favourite evenings was sitting, post BBQ, with glass f wine in hand and watching an amazing thunder and lightning show over the lake and mountains. For an early riser, my morning coffee watching the sun come up over the lake was a joy.

For 4 adults the villa was more than enough room and it would happily suit a family of 6. We couldn't think of a single thing in terms of equipment or attention to detail that hadn't been considered. Fantastic.

Menaggio is just 10 minutes away and there are small shops in the nearer town as well as an old style corner shop with bread, milk etc just 100 yards walk away.

You will need a car but there is even a garage for you to park in and keep it in the shade.

The pool is great, and has its own fantastic views, although the 'pool rules' need to be noted for families with young kids. Inflatables are banned and and It even says that only 4 people from any one apartment should be at the villa at any one time!!! How that's policed I don't know but the visitors book does make mention of a grumpy old man in one of the apartments who is known to moan about the noise.

Would we return - definitely.

Finally a quick thank you to Brian who was very helpful when we were booking and to Roy who was great at showing us around the villa when we arrived. Great service.

Oh, and have I mentioned the view yet?

Lovely pool apartment with stunning lake views!!!!

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time at this apartment.This was our third trip to Lake Como in the last 10 years, but the first time that we have rented an apartment with a pool, which was lovely & remarkably quiet.It seems that the pool is shared between quite a few apartments, but it seems a lot of them are owned by Italians who only use them a few times a year.....we had the pool to ourselves most days.

The apartment is very nice & homely & the views are stunning from the balcony & kitchen.....a lovely way to start the day, just spending a few minutes gazing across the lake.

San Siro is a 10 minute drive from Menaggio, so very convenient for getting to Bellagio, Varenna & the towns to the south on the popular western side of the lake, such as Tremezzo, Lenno, Sala Comacina & Argegno.

San Siro is less touristy than Menaggio, but a bustling and interesting place in itself & the Pizza we enjoyed at 'Creme Caramel' was the best that we have had on the lake & as good as any other throughout Italy.....& we have eaten a lot over the last 37 years!!

The fantastic views from the elevated position of the apartment mean that you really do need a car here, but the winds & twists on the 2-3 minute drive up the hill are all part of the fun of the holiday.

We'll be back!!

Carol & Brian

Great apartment with fantastic views

  • 5 of 5

Had a great time at the apartment, the views over the lake were fantastic. The BBQ was great, especially with an Italian beer or three!

The small restaurant in San rezzonico was just a short walk away and served up delicious local food before a walk back along the lake and back up to the apartment. Bike hire in Lenno was a great way to explore the lake and burn off the pizza!

Overall a great apartment made even better by having a pool :)

If you want to enjoy one of the best views in the world, looking across Lake Como with the mountains as the backdrop then this is it. The property is the perfect location for Lake Como based holidays, It is spacious, well equipped and close to the pool where you can idle away the afternoons when not going out sightseeing. We loved our stay from the moment we arrived when we were met and shown round to when we left. Simply the best.

A fantastic apartment with beautiful lake views!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I have had an absolutely fantastic holiday staying in Apartment Residence Romina. The apartment was well equipped with everything we needed, and the layout was perfect for my family of six. Having two different levels was a real bonus. The home was a lot more spacious than I expected with the open plan living room and kitchen. The pictures really don’t do it justice. The balcony has spectacular views of the lake, and one of our favourite evenings was when we had a BBQ at dusk. We loved relaxing in the pool after a day of sightseeing, and there was hardly ever anyone there, so it was like having our own private pool! I tried to read on the sun loungers, but it was hard to look away from the incredible views. The area was extremely peaceful and felt really safe. We had a car, so it was easy to get to all of the different areas on the lake. Barrie, the property manager was friendly and extremely helpful, and I would definitely recommend this apartment to anyone planning on visiting Lake Como.

Hope, from the UK

We felt at home!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the Residence Romina Apartment in September and really enjoyed our stay. The apartment was well equipped and we tried our hand at Italian cooking a few times over our stay! San Siro was the perfect place for us to stay as it was not too touristy and it was nice to wander down to the lake and have the stone beach to ourselves in the evening. You can walk down the road to the lake through little walkways. We would definitely recommend Crème Caramel Restaurant on the lake front for really good pizzas. The Romina apartment was a good choice for us because there is a double room and bathroom upstairs and a twin room and a ‘family’ room with two sofa beds and a bathroom downstairs so we had plenty of space. It felt like home by the time we left, we can’t wait to come back in a few years!
