We had the most amazing family holiday. The apartment is in a wonderful location. Very Italian. Peaceful but with amenities locally & only 10 minutes from the buzz of Mennagio.
Having our two daughters aged 17 & 20 with us it was perfect having two floors & two bathrooms. They could enter the poolside and garden from their own door. The balcony was superb and a great size for all of us to sit & eat comfortably. The apartment was exceptionally clean & well presented.
We used all the facilities including washing machine & dishwasher. All great but only one appliance at any one time ha ha. Italian electrics. We were still able to make a cup of tea as the kettle didnt appear to be affected.
Location wise, we were so thrilled. Menaggio 10 mins by car & easy for picking up the water taxi. We used it for both foot and car and it was great fun. Very straightforward. We also picked it up from Cadenabbria which was a little less hectic. Bellagio is just the most pretty place & lots of great places to eat by the waterside. It's steep but so worthwhile exploring up into the tiny cobbled streets.
Our girls hired a kayak and went out onto the lake which they enjoyed. €20 for an hour. We did try to book a boat but left it to late & shop around as prices really do vary.
We went off into Switzerland via the mountains which was fun. Very haunting to see them so close up but worth the trip. Half a day exploring.
Having pretty much covered the whole lake during our 10 days we were so pleased with our location in San Siro. Away from the tourist areas but with other families on holiday & Italian families surrounding us, there was always comings & goings to provide an atmosphere. Simply wonderful.
The only aspect to take into consideration is the stairs up to the apartment. Three flights of stairs but totally manageable unless perhaps nursing injuries or of an elderly age & find stairs tricky. Parking was good. Always a space available.
We all had the most memorable time. Cannot recommend it enough both for the apartment & location. Very friendly.
Just a note from our experience...if you can avoid travelling on a Sat or Sunday, please do. We were caught up in lots of traffic jams & a crash which took place alongside Lake Como & couldn't really go anywhere until cleared. However, on our rtn which was a Wednesday we literally sailed through. This was also noticeable at the Romina Residence over the weekend, changeover days & Italians arriving to chill out.
