About Karen Rex
We are a professional couple with a teenage daughter and have enjoyed exploring in and around Menaggio for the last 15 years and absolutely love the stunning scenery, traveling across the lake on the boats, lakeside walks, eating lovely italian ice cream in the piazza's.
Karen Rex purchased this Apartment in 2005
Why Karen Rex chose Plesio
The views are incredible of the lake and mountains from our apartment, the residency has a beautiful swimming pool with fantastic views, you can also play tennis, table tennis and enjoy a game of boules. We never tire of scenery from our property, each season is so different. The landscape is dramatic. It appealed to us as a family, or a couple, we can go sightseeing/walking in the morning/early afternoon and enjoy the pool etc mid to late afternoon, we still enjoy every visit to our apartment and always want to stay longer even 15 years later.....

Stunning location, amazing views... but accommodation could be slightly improved
The location of this apartment is stunning. The views are to die for and the whole complex in which it sits is spotless, quiet and feels very safe. It is a 7 minute drive up the hill from Menaggio on very twisty roads which isn't much fun - but when you get there the views really are worth it.
The pool, tennis court and other sports facilities are great. The pool was busy at times (especially at the weekend) but we always found loungers - even when turning up mid afternoon.
The main downsides are with the apartment. The lighting is only through side lamps which need turning on at plug sockets and provide limited light. Also, there are very few plug sockets so we were often having to choose whether to have light or to charge our phones. A few more sockets would make a big difference.
There is also no air-conditioning in the apartment and only one fan so it does get hot. It's a shame there aren't ceiling fans in the bedrooms. It's also worth mentioning that the WiFi is fairly awful. Very slow and the router kept tripping out. Don't turn up expecting to watch a lot of Netflix.
The details of the sleeping accommodation aren't very clear on the website. It does sleep five but the bed in bedroom 2 isn't a full double (probably 4' wide) and would be very cosy with two people in it. The sofa bed in the living room is a full double and happily takes two people (although at the cost of a fair amount of living space).
There's no bath but the shower was excellent with plentiful hot hater.
Communication with the hosts was great. Clear instructions for arrival and good recommendations for the local area. A few more instructions for departure would have helped but we worked it out (we hope).
Certainly no regrets staying here but another time we would probably opt for somewhere with air-conditioning or ceiling fans. We won't find anywhere with better views though.
Equipped with everything we needed - pool caps, table tennis, boules, tennis equipment plus all household things too. Excellent location with stunning views. We had a mix of chilled and busy times - just what we needed
Hi Evelyn... thank you, we are pleased you all had a great time and you enjoyed your holiday at our apartment and in and around Menaggio..

Un très bon sejour
Très bel emplacement pour cet hébergement. Une vue magnifique sur le lac de Come et un petit jardin et terrasse très agréables.
Convient parfaitement pour 4. À 5 on était un peu plus à l'étroit pour les couchages.
La chambre dont la fenêtre donne sur le derrière de la maison est un peu sombre et ne peut pas être aérée à cause d'une forte odeur de gaz...
La résidence est très agréable avec une piscine magnifique avec une vue splendide. Un terrain de tennis, de pétanque et une table de ping-pong.
Environnement très calme.
Très belle semaine passée dans cette magnifique région de la Lombardie.
Appartement simplement meublé mais il ne manque rien (à part peut être une chaise longue dans le jardin).
La vue est vraiment époustouflante et ce fut un réel plaisir de vacances de la contempler à chaque repas. Nous avons aussi beaucoup apprécié la piscine et la résidence très bien entretenue et très calme.
Par ailleurs, la location est très bien située et donne accès très facilement à de belles découvertes sur le lac.
Nous recommandons sans hésiter cette adresse.
Menaggio est l'emplacement idéal pour découvrir le lac de Côme.
Appartement sans prétention mais très bien équipé. La vue sur le lac est à couper le souffle. Résidence calme, sécurisée, entretenue, grande piscine.
Emplacement idéal pour compromis farniente et visites.
Le top pour une famille.
Les propriétaires sont très disponibles par mail et réactifs.
