What a fantastic holiday. Our lake view garden was like paradise! Our holiday aparment was so modern and clean inside and it was very luxurious for us, with 2 double size bedrooms. Our hire car was so easy to get to Menaggio and all the sites of lake Como. Thanks so much for letting us stay in your beautiful home.

we felt like we had our own little oasis to enjoy

  • Review Submitted: 15-Apr-2013
  • Date of Stay: Jul 2012
My family had enjoyed a busy sightseeing holiday the previous week in Rome and we ideally wanted somewhere peaceful for our second week before our drive back to England. We knew the lakes could offer this. We were not disappointed! The house we chose, Casa Monaco was situated in a really pleasant semi-rural location on the Pianello hillside. We were travelling by car so we were able to access the house easily. I would certainly advise a car because it is quite a way up from the bus stop we saw along the main lake road. The location was so quiet and we felt like we had our own little oasis to enjoy for the week. Our teenage twin girls really loved the sunny garden for sunbathing and we all had a great time there. It was modern and very comfortable. Power boat rental, tennis, swimming, golf and water sports were all near by. We also went to visit villa carlotta and villa balbianello which I would highly recommend. There were lots of restaurants along the western shore to enjoy, particularly in Tremezzo. There was also a great pizzeria in Cremia called la Baia. The girls had some delicious pizzas there and Suzie and I were real fans of the lake fish dishes!

the views were incredible!

  • Review Submitted: 15-Apr-2013
  • Date of Stay: Aug 2012
My husband Max and I enjoyed two super weeks in Casa Monaco this August time. The place was in a really peaceful location on the hillside. We were both really impressed by the modern interior and open plan layout. Our friends came to stay for the second week so we were able to give them the second room which was great. The garden was super sunny and the views were incredible! The place really needs a car to get too. Lydia the booking lady told us this when we booked - so we were prepared. The location was great for walking and for accessing the wind surfing and central lake attractions. Max and I also enjoyed kayaking and a yacht cruise, organised by happy holiday homes. Many thanks for a fun and relaxed stay. Your place was very beautiful.

The well-serviced lakefront town of Dongo with its wide variety of charming restaurants is also conveniently located just 2 km away. The very famous and picturesque lakeside Resort town of Menaggio is situated approximately just a 20 minute’s drive away and offers a wide selection of shops both local and boutique, as well as cafes, bars, restaurants and local attractions for visitors to enjoy. A fast and frequent Car and Passenger ferry service also operates from the town, enabling visitors to explore the eastern shore of Lake Como, which boasts the two exceptionally pretty Resort towns of Bellagio and Varenna.

For the winter months the property is ideal for those wanting to Ski, with the popular Italian Ski Resort of Madesimo being situated North of Lake Como, just a 70 minutes drive away.

PLEASE NOTE: This property includes wireless internet free of charge!

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. 100K.
