Guestbook comments from the manager
My girlfriends and I decided on a 2 week holiday this year on Lake Como. We had all enjoyed holidays here previously so we knew we would enjoy it. We knew that staying in Pianello would be both peaceful and accessible for the central lake.
The newly refurbished property was perfectly stylish and chic inside and out, and was topped off by a sunny private balcony terrace. The communal pool was situated across the road, which may sound inconvenient but the road is very narrow and hardly used due to the hillside location of the holiday home. We had flip flops so really didn't mind! All the must-haves feature to the property and I loved my pretty bedroom with french-style interior. The living area and all the rooms were utterly charming, with exposed stone work, beamed ceilings and all the finishing touches you would expect from a luxury home.
The fully-equipped kitchen was really fun to cook in and we enjoyed some delicious meals out at nearby La Baia, La Darsena and the country-style La Fagurida organic restaurant. We parked our hire car at the public parking spaces nearby across the road and we found reaching Menaggio really easy by car.
We all enjoyed the peace of the surrounding area and in the evenings we enjoyed meeting and dancing with the locals at the fun Lidos. There was also a very good spa in Lenno which we would recommend after a day of sightseeing and activities.
Thank you for a lovely stay!
