Guestbook comments from the owner

We really enjoyed our stay at Bellavista Grande, and we received excellent service from your company throughout.



Danilo was very helpful, and we highly recommend the driver he sent to pick up my sister and then us, for our transfers. I unfortunately cannot recall his name I'm sorry. However, he was incredibly helpful and even walked my sister into the train terminal to ensure she found her platform etc. We were very appreciative of this. He also provided a lot of interesting information about the region during the drive.



Travelling with a toddler is challenging and the stairs up to the street definitely tested us, but the view from the balcony was worth the effort. The property was clean and in good condition.



Menaggio was a perfect choice for us to stay in as we found towns like Bellagio to be very touristy and busy. Our proximity to the ferry terminal was very convenient and we travelled around the towns via ferry.



The area is simply breathtaking, even more beautiful than the pictures suggest.



The company were very helpful in arranging the transfers and boat hire, plus allowing us to use the printing facilities at the office as well. Everyone we came across was very helpful.



Thank you for a wonderful stay, we hope to return to the region one day in the future.

Golf: There are Golf clubs around Lake Como: The Cadenabbia & Menaggio Golf Club and is Italy's oldest golf course. Established in 1907 with 18 holes Par 70, it is located above Menaggio near Croce, in Grandola ed Uniti, approx. 20 min. by car. Tel: +39 344 321 03. Green Fees: Weekdays €55, Weekends and Holidays ���70 Euros; Golf Cart Rental ���36.

Restaurant Golf at the club serves fantastic food and is well recommended.. Guests are always welcome, please call beforehand to check course rules. Golf Club Menaggio: (Menaggio Como).

Ski: This beautiful lake region of Italy is not the best for skiing as you may imagine, despite its scenery, crisp air and near perfect visibility and mountains capped in winter snow. It does however have Skiing opportunities at local resorts for a day out.

There is a small ski area on Mt. Lema, not more than 10 km from Lugano, but you have to be lucky to have enough snow for skiing. In Ticino, the local Swiss Canton, the best places to ski are probably either San Bernardino (south of the pass of the same name) or Airolo (south of Gotthard pass). Both are reachable in about 1 hour by car across the Swiss border.

There are direct trains to Airolo as well from Lugano and hence from Italian Stations. To S. Bernardino there is only a bus connection. For more snow try Andermatt (on the north side of Gotthard pass) which has normally good snow conditions and a good choice of runs.

The closest major ski resorts are St. Moritz and Madesimo toward the Splugen Pass which is approx. 100K
