We were two couples travelling together and staying at Santa Maria Rezzonico. The apartment was modern and clean and the beds were comfortable. The two bathrooms were modern and well equipped. It is so nice nice to stay in a lovely clean house. The balcony was great for dining al fresco in the evening or just enjoying a drink together.
The area around here is so beautiful, which we already knew as we had travelled here all together 47 years ago. The ferry from menaggio was very convenient and as long as we were there before ten we could get parked, past the terminal and up the hill, where the parking was free. We ate out at various places, not in Santa Maria though, no reason for this it was just easier to eat out when we were out and about. We had a lovely day in Como, we went on the hydrofoil at 8.10 on Saturday but it goes at 8 in the week. It was quite expensive but well worth it. We decided to come back by ferry but to be honest the price was not that different. Just a tip if you go on a saturday to como and don't get a return ticket, get your return ticket when you arrive in como, we left getting ours until later and had to queue for 30 mins.
We have had a wonderful stay here and would thoroughly recommend this apartment to others.
This penthouse totally lived up to our expectations and was even better than the impression from the photos. Stunning 180 degree views over the lake, and beautifully appointed rooms made it the ideal place to stay for our holiday. With a 10 minute walk into Como, we were well situated to get the ferries up to the towns on the lake(we particularly loved Villa Monastero in Varenna, and Villa Carlotta), and also use the food shops in Como. We had everything we needed in the kitchen to cook nice meals and enjoy the views of Como. We also appreciated the warm reception we received from Barrie on our arrival, and were re-assured to know he was locally on hand should we have needed anything. Overall a fabulous apartment which we would highly recommend. Mike and Jan
