Our teenage children loved the fast wifi (sad but true!). It's very handy for Milan Central station, which means you can get around the city easily. Dealing with Nico over the booking was excellent too, and Manuela, who met us for arrival and departure was lovely and spoke perfect english! The aircon was a real bonus as well, as we enjoyed some hot August weather - I'd really recommend this place!

The stunning lake views from the well equipped balcony provided a lovely place to eat outside and relax. The modern, bright and exceptionally clean bedrooms, bathrooms and kitchen had everything we needed and more!! Parking was safe and secure which is a bonus in bustling Menaggio!! Claudio and Luisella are lovely hosts, happy to give their time to answer questions about places to eat, see and swim; they give attention to detail and this really enhanced our stay. The Papaveri (Poppy) apartment is surrounded by greenery, gardens and amazing views and we found the slightly elevated position easily accessible on foot( via short distance on road) to lovely Menaggio and the ferry port.
