Guestbook comments from the owner

We truly had an excellent vacation in Menaggio. We loved the apartment, even though it was a tiring walk at the end of our long days, it was in a great location and the view was spectacular! We arrived and found it to be spotless. We did meet some very nice bar owners/managers. The man in the bar (Pres bar??, cant remember the exact name) its the one right in the piazza, the front faces the water, side tables face the piazza. He was very nice and had a sense of humor. Another Italian bar manager/owner, who much to our disbief, had a preference for country music, was so nice and took time to talk to us.

The staff in your office were awesome. They were all very helpful and seemed happy to answer any questions. We did the St.Mortitz/Bernina tour and loved it. Again, I apologize, but I cant remember the name of the girl who conducted that tour. She was great! She even helped us by extra tickets and worked it out so we could meet the bus in St. Moritz. She was very knowledgeable of the area and her english was excellent. We did rent a boat for a couple of hours. That was awesome. The lake is so easy to navigate and the weather was in our favor. The ferry was fairly easy to figure out and we did that most days. Our favorite towns were Bellagio & Menaggio. Overall our vacation has left us with some wonderful memories and beautiful pictures of Lago di Como! You can count on us to recommend your establishment to any friends or family that may vacation there.

Spectacular Views, So so accommodations.

  • 3 of 5

Stayed 4 nights. Menaggio was great place to have as home base for Como. Laid back, no crowds (Bellagio was jammed), limited restaurants but we had a couple of good meals and ended up eating elsewhere a number times in other cities. Ferry makes it a snap. One day we rented a boat all day for 250 euros through the hosts, highlite of our stay! Docking in little towns and exploring.

Accommodations are so,so. No parking so you scramble for free or even paid parking close. Slight climb to get to the place (not for the elderly). 69 spiral steps once your in to get to the apt door. Really can't cook there, kitchen is not outfitted well. No dish soap, dish towels, paper towel, salt, pepper etc. 4 rolls of TP FOR 4 days for 6 people. You are responsible for everything.

Having said that, every time I woke up and looked out the window I didn't care about the details...a never forget view!

Green Fees: Weekdays �����55, Weekends and Holidays ���70 Euros; Golf Cart Rental €36.

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).

Ski: 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. 100K
