Great Location but...

  • 4 of 5

This property is exactly as it appears - great location and right in the heart of the ferry action for Menaggio. We thoroughly enjoyed sitting for hours on our balcony and watching the tourists and ferries go about their activities. Great for running downstairs and jumping on a ferry when we see it approaching. A convenient and good bar (with a tasty hamburger) is downstairs, as well as a very interesting grocery store . The apartment had most of the basics needed for our 6-day stay. It was extremely noisy, however, as the bar never closed on a Saturday night, keeping us awake all night. Additionally, the apartment is located directly on the main route and there is a constant stream of street traffic, forcing us to close the windows. Ownership has kindly placed two fans in the apartment, now necessary, since all the windows are closed against the noise (No A/C). We understand you can't have it both ways - location and quiet, but this seemed excessive. Additionally, the apartment wasn't terribly clean. Looked like it was given a quick, once-over, and not vacuumed at all. To be fair, it wasn't bad enough to complain, but we did mention it to them at check-out. Overall, the view and the location are great. I would recommend this apartment as long as one is aware of the noise factor.

Restaurant Golf at the club serves fantastic food and is well recommended.. Guests are always welcome, please call beforehand to check course rules. Golf Club Menaggio: (Menaggio Como).

Skiing:

This beautiful lake region of Italy is not the best for skiing as you may imagine, despite its scenery, crisp air and near perfect visibilty and mountains capped in winter snow. It does however have Skiing opportunities at local resorts for a day out.

There is a small ski area on Mt. Lema, not more than 10 km from Lugano, but you have to be lucky to have enough snow for skiing. In Ticino, the local Swiss Canton, the best places to ski are probably either San Bernardino (south of the pass of the same name) or Airolo (south of Gotthard pass). Both are reachable in about 1 hour by car across the Swiss border.

There are direct trains to Airolo as well from Lugano and hence from Italian Stations. To S. Bernardino there is only a bus connection. For more snow try Andermatt (on the north side of Gotthard pass) which has normally good snow conditions and a good choice of runs.

The closest major ski resorts are St. Moritz and Madesimo toward the Splugen Pass which is approx.100km.
