The villa was easy to find and upon arrival at the property we received a very friendly welcome. The villa is very spacious and has everthing you would want during a holiday. It is well maintained and was very clean and tidy.
Elena very kindly took us on a tour of Lecco so that we could see some of the main parts and to also see where various restaurants were located (something we had enquired about) and this helped us to get our bearings. There is plenty of tourist information available at the villa and if there is anything in particular that you want to do I suggest you let Elena know in advance so that she can get the information for you. The views from the villa, which is high up the hill from the centre of Lecco, were stunning. During our stay we visited Bellagio, Como and Milan during our stay. Excellent train service, make sure you get the train that goes to Milano Centrale, it’s fast! The cable car trip is well worh doing, the views from the top of the mountain are fantasic and the air is so clear. Nice little cafe at the bottom if you have to wait for you trip.
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.
