Guestbook comments from the manager
We enjoyed a wonderful summer on the Italian lakes and we have to say Lake Como was our favourite! Our vacation rental, Villa Caberio was ideal for our requirements and it was such a gorgeous place to relax and entertain. The town of Menaggio was so charming too and its piazzas and lido was a popular destination of ours, it must be said! The ferry service from Menaggio was very convenient and we had a great time visiting beautiful Varenna and the shops of Bellagio. Lake Como has some incredible sites to see, including its villas and gardens...my word were they spectacular! Thank you Happy Holiday Homes for all your help in arranging our boat rental, restaurant reservations and Spa experience - you guys were just fantastic!
