Overview

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday home in Menaggio - Croce Amore

2 Bedroom townhouse to sleep 4 in Menaggio with private jacuzzi & lake views

Nestled on the Menaggio hillside a beautiful two storey Villa is situated in a peaceful and elevated position.

This townhouse (ID 304) appeals to either an older family, couples travelling together or for an intimate holiday alone with a love one.

From reaching the Villa by a steep road and some stone steps a beautiful alpine rockery themed garden greets you, with a sunny and spacious Terrace with Dining table and chairs, and a stone BBQ. From the terrace you enter the property where a spacious luxurious granite top Kitchen awaits, with all the desired facilities such as a double refrigerator, fabulous hob with oven, flat screen TV, breakfast bar and more.

For those of you who need to keep in touch, wireless internet is offered in the property as well.

Leading from the kitchen a convenient and ultra-modern toilet is situated and also not forgetting one of the highlights of the property which is a light and luxuriously modern lake view living room, comprising 2 large leather cream sofas and equipped with a remote control operated fireplace, large wall mounted flat screen TV and DVD player. The atmosphere is effortlessly chic with a warm and inviting feel which makes the ideal place to relax and unwind with guests!

Sliding doors with electric blinds lead off from the living room to a breathtaking lake view garden with covered terrace which offers a very comfortable paved sofa area and a sunken Jacuzzi in the lawn which overlooks Bellagio and is the most fun way to spend a lazy summer’s day or even a romantic way to spend an evening with a glass of Prosecco!

An outdoors shower is also situated here to allow you to refresh whilst the Italian sun is out.

From the living area granite laid steps lead to a light and modern first floor which comprises the sleeping accommodation. The Villa provides 2 very private double bedroom suites, the master bedroom is very spacious and offers a large double bed, dressing area and a very contemporary en-suite bathroom with toilet, wash basin and a Sauna with steam shower to try!

Leading from the master bedroom a sunny lake balcony is situated where you can lay on one of the deckchairs to enjoy a good book as well as the romantic lake views which are truly breathtaking.

The second suite is situated on the same floor and offers a large double bed, a sunny lake view balcony with table and chairs to enjoy a morning coffee, and a beautiful en-suite wet room with all the desired additional sanitary ware.

Surrounding the Villa on one side is the alpine rockery garden which, after a short exploration up the winding path leads to a romantic lake view seating area.

There is a car parking area next to the Villa and a short drive down takes you to the world famous Menaggio and Cadenabbia Golf Club and the lakeside town centre of Menaggio, which offers all the desired amenities and services.

Menaggio is about half way up the western side of Lago Como, an attractive and thriving town in the summer months and little more quiet in the winter! Accessible by car from Como at the south end of the lake, or Lugano in Switzerland, across the pass via Porlezza (340) above Menaggio but also by ferry from Bellagio and Varenna (where there is a train from Milan). The heart of the 'old' town gathered around Piazza Garibaldi close to Menaggio's harbour features mostly 19th century buildings in the Italian alpine style painted in muted tones. The higher part of the town has a more medieval aspect featuring narrow alleys, steep stairs and stone buildings. The old and 'new', the shops, restaurants, cafes, public squares and alleyways, the tree shaded lakeshore promenades bordered by flowers, and the well-kept villas form a wonderful and serene place to holiday.

Historically Significant: Historically this area was originally settled during the Bronze Age by the Gauls, but subsequently conquered by the Romans who established a defensive fort and colony where Menaggio now sits. The town was linked to by a major Roman highway, the Via Regina, to other parts of the Empire over the Alps and the Southern territories.

Because of Menaggios' strategic location on the Via Regina, during medieval times, Menaggio was surrounded by walls (remnants of which still exist),towers, castles and various other fortifications, which historians visit this region of Lake Como to explore.

Centuries later citizens of Menaggio were actively involved in a process (the Risorgimento) a process that in 1805 culminated in the annexation of the region of Lombardia by the Kingdom of Sardegna.

Menaggio - Activities: Crazy Golf in Menaggio, 7 km. Fitness trail in Loveno. Alpine mountain climbing is possible up to 3000m. In Chiavenna, a 30 minute drive away, you can hire a mountain guide. Skiing from cross-country to slalom is possible in 1700 m high St. Moritz. In Menaggio you can hire kayaks, motor boats, water skis and bicycles. There's also a swimming pool and tennis courts. Menaggio is a pleasant, lively town, with idyllic lanes, a bright piazza and outdoor cafes, a beautiful lakeside promenade lined by villas. It's an attraction for many at Lake Como. Culture: on the west shore of the lake around Tremezzo Villas, churches, monasteries, museums, castles and interesting monuments are waiting for you to be admired.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Villa Croce Amore is a beautiful home. Beautiful views and a great villa for entertaining.

We took the ferry to Bellagio and had lunch at The Terrace, Hotel Florence and did some hiking at Varenna. The Italian Lakes do have a postcard picture!

Car: recommended

Menaggio is about half way up the western side of Lago Como, an attractive and thriving town in the summer months and little more quiet in the winter! Accessible by car from Como at the south end of the lake, or Lugano in Switzerland, across the pass via Porlezza (340) above Menaggio but also by ferry from Bellagio and Varenna (where there is a train from Milan). The heart of the 'old' town gathered around Piazza Garibaldi close to Menaggio's harbour features mostly 19th century buildings in the Italian alpine style painted in muted tones. The higher part of the town has a more medieval aspect featuring narrow alleys, steep stairs and stone buildings. The old and 'new', the shops, restaurants, cafes, public squares and alleyways, the tree shaded lakeshore promenades bordered by flowers, and the well-kept villas form a wonderful and serene place to holiday.

Other Activities: Boat Rentals/Charters, Canoeing/Kayaking, Float Plane/Helicopter, Public Villas & Gardens

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 visibilty 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.100km
