Overview

About the property

Sant'Andrea Vista - sleeps 4 guests in 2 bedrooms - private garden shared pool

Parco Sant'Andrea is a wonderful contemporary residential complex, designed by the Italian Architect Arturo Montanelli.

A terraced complex that assures you privacy from your neighbors and wonderful direct lake views.

Vista Sant'Andrea is our apartment there on the top floor of three.

On entering the complex there are steps that lead you to the shared swimming pool. A lovely place to swim and relax with loungers and table and chairs for you to use. The pool and the properties all have stunning lake views.

There are stairs or a lift that take you to your floor and then a short walk to reach the apartment, which is a peaceful corner flat away from the swimming pool area.

The apartment's private property and garden is gated and consists of a main patio just outside all the windows of the apartment, and a lawned roof garden.

The open plan living/dining/kitchen area is extremely spacious with floor to ceiling sliding windows that create a vast indoor/outdoor living space.The modern white leather corner sofa, low coffee tables and designer lamps just make this the perfect spot to relax and enjoy the lake view or watch a movie on the large flat screen TV.

The kitchen, a contemporary space is equipped with appliances that include; oven, hob, fridge/freezer, built in coffee machine, dishwasher, microwave and kettle. A breakfast bar with stools forms part of the kitchen area. There is also dining space on the patio and a BBQ. Off the kitchen is a laundry room with a washing machine and dryer.

Through the living space area you arrive at the double bedroom. Decorated in fresh green and white you can slide open the windows and gaze across the lake. It has its own bathroom with a bathtub, shower, basin and WC just across the hallway.

At the end of the hall is the Master suite. A large bedroom with a king sized bed that is positioned in the centre of the room. The view of the lake and the surrounding mountains is fantastic. There is a large walk-in shower, wash basins and a separate WC in the en-suite bathroom.

The apartment is private and exclusive and offers you a contemporary retreat in the mountains above Menaggio. The Parco Sant' Andrea is a short drive from Menaggio.We recommend you have the use of a car to enjoy the different lake spots. Private and covered parking is available at the apartment.

Menaggio is the largest town of the central lake area. It is also a part of the Triangolo Lariano. The Lario Triangle. Lario is the Latin name of the lake. The triangle connects Menaggio. Varenna and Bellagio. Most possibly the most popular villages. It is also the more "lived in" village of the area with offices, shops, banks, schools and hospital. So not only will you be a part of the tourists staying in the village but you will be surrounded by locals so you will get the feeling of the Italian life style. Menaggio's lake front promenade is one of the nicest of the lake, beautifully taken care of by the council gardeners. Walking the length of the promenade you will reach the largest Lido on the lake, Lido Giardino Menaggio. A great place for a day at the beach, 25mt swimming pool with a kiddy pool as well, large beach with sun loungers, lake access, beach volley, playground and a pizzeria restaurant and brewery to enjoy a meal or an evening.

Menaggio is an old Roman town and has a wonderful antique historic center that begins down at the lake to continue up the hillside to the old walls of the Castel. Unfortunately there isn't much remaining of the original building but the Church of San Carlo is well worth a visit. The best thing to do is to take advantage of the Tourist office in the main Square, Piazza Garibaldi. Here you will find Matilde or Sandra who are very helpful and will give you all the information you could need, timetables, brochures, maps and indications on "what to do today". You will realize that It is well served by public transportation with frequent busses and boats. Como is only 25km away and Lugano 20km, but do remember your passport as it is in Switzerland.

Make sure you visit the surrounding villages, Porlezza, on the way to Lugano and is on Lake Lugano, continuing in this direction you reach ValSolda. A string of villages that have no choice than to creep up the mountain. It is known as the "Piccolo Mondo Antico" the small antique world. Also the Tremezzina area must not be misses. It goes from Tremezzo to Lenno.....wonderful little villages all on the lake with beautiful Villas to visit, Carlotta and Balbianello and just to amble in general discovering the historic centers.

Bellagio and Varenna are surly not to be misses, Bellagio quite touristy but if you appreciate the lanes and historic center it is well worth the visit and not to be missed is the Villa Melzi. Varenna is very lovely, a wonderful lake side promenade, very original and of course the Villa Monastero.

This is just a small number of suggestions, you can discover the rest and if you find something you very much enjoyed on the Lake please let us know as we always appreciate feedback from our clients!

Beautiful property with lovely views

  • 4 of 5

We’ve had a lovely 3 night break at this beautiful, luxury property. The view of the Lake was wonderful and the property was very comfortable. I’d recommend a car to get around as it’s by a main road on a steep hill.

No internet service

  • 4 of 5

We did love the apartment it was very spacious and clean. However, there was no internet service. The manager asked for pictures of the modem to use to call the service provider but did not come up to check the system.

A great end of summer stay

  • 4 of 5

Four of us (two couples) stayed at SA Vista for five nights, during the last week of September.

The views from the apartment are gorgeous and it looks just like the photos.

We had rented a car and were glad we did, because although we were told it would take around 20 minutes to walk down into the town, in reality I think it would have been closer to 30 (and that's if we didn't get run off the road as there is a distinct lack of footpaths), and the trip back UP the hill would have easily taken an hour.

Something to note, which if you haven't been to Menaggio before means you may be unaware. The positioning of SA Vista means that at the end of September it gets sunshine only until the very early afternoon, then the outdoor areas of the apartment are in the shade. The temperature drops pretty quickly at that time of year, so we couldn't sit outside much past 6pm as it was too cold.

Aside from the drone of traffic from nearby roads, the apartment was very peaceful, but then I think only 3-4 of the apartments were occupied due to end of season. The pool was not in use while we were there, and by the end of our stay it had been covered up, I assume, for the winter season.

As I think others have said, the WiFi is terrible. We didn't have any WiFi for 24 hours or so as the gadget they use was not working. We got it swapped and were connected up.... only to find out much too late, that there was a data limit of just 2GB. This is fine if all you are doing is reading emails, checking facebook etc, but we didn't realise and watched something on Netflix (which we finally got to work after moving the wifi gadget all over the place to try and get better reception). Needless to say it chewed through most of the data and we were left with no WiFi for the last couple of days. This would have been good to know at the outset.

Also, beware of the lift. Four of us could not use it at one time as it would get stuck so one or two people would take the stairs.

There is a washing machine and dryer, which we made use of. The kitchen has all the basics and layout is good for chatting/entertaining. The coffee maker does work (once you figure it out) but make sure you give it a good clean. It was full of mold when we opened it up! (The cleaner had done the basics but when we arrived we took out the vacuum cleaner and gave the whole place a once-over as there was lots of dust and small bit of debris.)

The apartment was lovely and Menaggio is a cute little town but if we were to go back to the Lake Como area, we would look to stay somewhere that gets evening sunshine (although I suspect the shade may be much better received at the height of summer!)

Sant'Andrea Vists

  • 5 of 5

Thank you Love Como for the beautiful apartment, Sant'Andrea. When the weather allowed we spent lots of time sat on the lovely balcony enjoying the amazing views , particularly of a very exciting thunder storm !

The apartment was very well equipped and very modern, although the wifi was not very reliable.

Super pool with again amazing views and plenty of loungers.

A good location for exploring Lake Como which we did by car. Nice energetic walk from Menaggio back up to the apartment to with off some of the lovely Italian cuisine !

There is always a hook

  • 3 of 5

A stunning view and a very elegant and refined furnishing. Yet some items were not according the description like

no air condition - with shut windows the noise from the Strada Stadale would have been bearable -

no Sat TV, all available programs in Italian- hard when travel with a 13year old teenager,

the hairdryer only had an English plug, but unfortunately there was no adapter in the apartment.

We also had an issue with the two iron entrance doors. One did not function when we arrived and Vittoria told us this would be repaired, but on the second day the other one did not open anymore and we were lucky enough that my husband with some locksmith experience could open the lock so we could get into the apartment after the pool.

We wrote Vittoria about our issues but there was no reaction.
