Menaggio ~ The perfect location:
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.
Boutique shops blend with historical churches, Italian architecture and bustling Cafes; which line the beautiful shopping parade leading off from the Piazza and the characterful cobbled back alleys, which await your exploration.
The Public Lido Beach and Swimming Pool, Children's Park, Mini golf are all just a minute's walk away also. Conveniently the Bus and Taxi service runs from the main Piazza, and the fast and convenient Menaggio car and pasenger Ferry is just a 3 minutes walk away.
Golf & Skiing:
Italy's oldest golf course, established in 1907 with 18 holes Par 70, is located above Menaggio near Croce, in Grandola ed Uniti, approx. 20 min. by car. Tel: +39 344 321 03. Green Fees: Weekdays EU 55, Weekends and Holidays EU 70 Euros; Golf Cart Rental EU 36. Restaurant Golf at the club serves fantastic food and is well recommended.
The closest major ski resort is Madesimo toward the Splugen Pass, which is approx. 1 hr 20 min. by car. St. Moritz in Switzerland is only 90 km by car. Other ski resorts are located in the Valtellina near Morbegno. The lake is beautiful to relax next to all year long - the scenery in the winter is some of the most striking, as the air is crisp, the visibility near perfect and the mountains capped in white snow.
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.

Guestbook comments from the manager
Here are our thoughts on La Piazza Menaggio, which we rented from you for one week:
We located the property quite easily, and it was exactly as represented on your website. Everything was clean, and the appliances worked perfectly. Your team was most helpful in every way.
We do have one suggestion for improvement, and that is to make sure all the keys work easily in the locks. The lock to the downstairs (outside) door was very difficult to open, and one set of our keys was also difficult to use in opening the front door of the residence.
Our favorite restaurants included Ristorante di Paolo and La Baita for dinners, and a smaller restaurant (La Trattoria di Nogara) that offered free wifi along with very nice food and good service.
If we return to Lake Como, we will most certainly ask for your help in locating a residence. Thank you for your help.
