Lombardy - Lake Como Area:-
The Italian Lakes are a little slice of paradise. Elegant ribbons of blue water stretch out ahead, folded into the sun-baked foothills, with a spectacular back drop of the snow-capped Alps.
Lake Como offers hidden treasures just waiting for the visitor to discover them: charming corners forgotten by time, lakeside villages where nothing seems to have changed for centuries.
It is steeped in history with an immense collection of churches, architectural masterpieces and works of art covering the centuries. The lake is situated in a basin surrounded by wooded mountains, and offers an extremely varied landscape, with its' shores featuring a succession of pastures, and woods as well as harsh and impressive rock formations.
All this alongside elegant, lakeside villas with sub-tropical gardens, which provide a haven of peace and tranquillity and chic resorts such as Varenna, Bellagio, Menaggio and Como itself.
Warming, in spring and graced with natural beauty, the lakes are still a place to draw breath and wonder. Lake Como, oriented north-south, ringed by characterful old villages often wedged onto narrow beaches between rugged cliffs and water. Those classic lake images of flower strewn balconies, Baroque gardens and splendid waterside villas can be found here in abundance. Dotted around and between the lakes are some of Italy's finest art cities, such as Milan, Verona & Bergamo.
The most romantic and picturesque villages on the lake are Santa Maria Rezzonico, Varenna (15 min by ferry) & Bellagio (8 min by ferry), Lenno (visit Villa Balbianello, location for 007's Casino Royale as well as Villa Gaeta, right here in Menaggio) & Laglio (where George Clooney owns Villa Oleandra).

Guestbook comments from the manager
We loved our stay at Villa Menaggio. It was perfect for our family vacation of three generations. The Villa Menaggio was very clean and spacious. The location was perfect. We enjoyed being able to walk into town for the ferry and loved being right on the waterfront with the beautiful views. We also enjoyed the family swimming pools that are within walking distance. Not having to rent a car for our vacation was an added bonus. Even the supermarket was within walking distance. It was a pleasure to have our hosts, Martina and Walter on site. They assisted us with any minor problems and shared with us the history of their lovely home. They were very gracious hosts in every way.
Thank you to all of your staff for their assistance in choosing Villa Menaggio. Lydia was especially helpful with supplying information and I appreciate her prompt and courteous responses to all of my questions. Danilo made arrangements for a wonderful chef to cook a delicious meal for us in the Villa. Since we were traveling with small children, this was a special treat. It was a very lovely evening and one of the highlights of our trip. A special thank you to Harold for helping us with transporting luggage to the ferry on the morning of our departure. I highly recommend Happy Holiday Homes for renting a vacation villa. Everything was as promised and they were truly a pleasure to do business with.
We hope to one day come back and visit the beautiful Lake Como region.
