Beachside heaven!

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here in October as our original choice upstairs was full. Both apartments exceeded our expectations. The home has fantastic lake views and is brand, spanking new with 2 good size bedrooms and bathrooms plus a lovely kitchen which we enjoyed cooking pasta from the local deli. The beach here at the residence was like having our own private beach as no one else used it so we sunbathed by day and enjoyed a bbq by night! Tony really looked after us, nothing was too much trouble for us. We paid via pay pal for the reservation and italian apartments were easy and efficient to deal with. Wifi worked well which is not always our experience in Italy. We booked the home as air con is available but found we didn't need it. Have recommended the home to family and hope to return ourselves in the coming season.

Magical Menaggio!

  • 5 of 5

Enjoyed a wonderful new year stay here in Menaggio. Lovely to wake up directly on the lake. Superb apartment, spotlessly clean and close to all amenities. We enjoyed exploring Menaggio, Bellagio and Varenna. Everything was close by so we did not need to use the car. Special thanks to Toni who was the perfect host!

Wonderful accommodations

  • 5 of 5

What a fantastic home. Located right in the village centre. We loved the private beach. Brand new, comfortable beds ( I was a little worried having booked and read the last review but I was happy to see on arrival they are all "proper" beds) Immaculately clean with a view to die for! It was just the two of us and our teenager daughter staying. We really did have a wonderful stay at Toni's home. He could not have been more accommodating even inviting us for Aperitivo! Toni really made the stay, we will be back.

View spectacular Apartment less so

  • 2 of 5

Menaggio and the view from the windows of this apartment are spectacular. The location on Lake Como is convenient for the town centre and perfect for short trips to the surrounding villages.The apartment itself was spacious and very clean and the views breath-taking from the main bedroom. However, the living room area was small and awkwardly arranged. The refurbishment clearly did not include sound proofing as those in the second bedroom could hear the upstairs occupants clearly. The single beds in this room were 'fold out' style and uncomfortable, with outdated bed linen. Be aware that the use of the internet is an additional 50 euros for the week. We were not able to access the beach area as we were not provided with the key. Would definately return to Menaggio but not to this apartment.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your email and feedback. We are glad you enjoyed the location and views from the home. The home has been recently renovated with brand new linen and bedding which is updated each season I can confirm. I confirm the home includes a double bedroom and a second bedroom with 2 single beds (not portable beds) If ever any aspect of your stay does not meet your or our high standards please advise during you stay at the time so we can address and correct any issues you may have. We can supply internet from 5 euros per day for 3 hours access or 50 euro unlimited or free wifi in the village as confirmed to guests at time of booking. The beach is open to guests throughout the summer. If guest arriving in early Spring or late autumn and they wish to use the beach we will gladly supply the key, please ask the owner on arrival and he will happily oblige (apologese it is not common here for italians to venture to the beach till June or even August!) Thank you once more for taking the time to write and we thank you for your business.

great place

  • 5 of 5

Excellent accommodation. The apartment is large with stunning views from large Windows in the bedroom. It was light and never felt hot. Right on the waterfront- you get a key to access the little beach via the cellar- we had it to ourselves nearly all week. WiFi great- ran 3 ipads and an iphone at the same time. 5 mins from the ferry and 5 mins from the centre. You really don't need a car at all. Tony speaks excellent English and is very helpful. Definitely would recommend this to anyone.

Further Details:

Menaggio attracts Italian philes and lovers of dolce vita in equal measures - and it's easy to see why. Everything you could ever wish for from a lakeside location is right here in the village. Palm lined lakeside walks, shingle beaches, panoramic lake views to Bellagio and a sunny aspect with lends itself to the palm lined sometimes semi-tropical climate. The gentle breeze whipped up from the lake act as a gentle reprieve from those balmy sunny days. The apartment is ideally placed to reach all amenities on foot as bars, a supermarket and the ferry stop are all less than a few minutes walk situated e close to the apartment. The village is renowned for its stunning piazza, award winning ice cream parlour, fresh lake fishmongers, designer fashion, cafe culture, leather and silk boutiques etc. The supermarket and ferry stop in the village means you don't have to leave the village or take the car if you want to indulge in a lazy week or two, everything is here in Menaggio for you! A favourite haunt of George Clooney.
