Living the good life!
As the private gates to this villa open and invite you in there is a feeling of home. The large wooden doors, beautiful gardens, large and fun kitchen to cook in and the views from the bedrooms overlooking Lake Como one way and you turn to look at the mountains is wonderful.
We were well cared for here and the location is perfect. Walk out onto the road and there is the Lake with a small patio. Walk left to the small and quait bar with great gelato or further down to the lido and restaurant. Walk right and you are 10 minutes from central Mennagio full of shop and restaurants. Say hello to everyone on the way who is happy to help with directions, touring and renting of boats and kayaks.
The first night we drove 5 minutes (15 min walk) to the grocery store and butcher and cooked up a family meal with our good friends. The patio is a wonderful place to gather to eat and share.
It is a family friendly place as well with an elevator as we had one person with a cane. We also found it useful on nights where we enjoyed the wine a little too much.
Note: thw shower is downstairs and you share space with the manager's family (the staircase) as they live on site. They are lovely people and we rarely saw them.
Enhanced our experience in Italy and would return here.
The surrounding Menaggio hillside is home to the Loveno nature reserve and tennis club and the world renowned Menaggio & Cadenabbia Golf Club and activities in the area include swimming, cycling, hiking, horse riding, sailing, power boat hire, tennis, quad bike tours and wind surfing. The boat rental is directly in front of the Villa. A great selection of restaurants and bars continue along the Tremezzina shore and Lake Lugano can be reached in just 25 minutes drive away. A frequent ferry service operates from Menaggio to the famous golden triangle resort towns and a reliable bus service runs a service the north of the lake and also south of the lake to Como city; with its cosmopolitan delights, attractions and convenient transport links to Milan and its airports. Additional Sport & Adventure Activities include: Bike Rentals, Boat Rentals/Charters, Canoeing/Kayaking, Float Plane/Helicopter, Funicular Railway, Park, Public Transportation, Public Villas & Gardens and Rowing Boats. Golf: There are Golf clubs around Lake Como: The Menaggio & Cadenabbia Golf Club is Italy's oldest golf course. Established in 1907 with 18 holes Par 70, it is located above Menaggio near Croce, in Grandola ed Uniti, approx. 20 min. by car. 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 Golf Club Menaggio beforehand to check course rules. 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 visibility 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 Madesimo and St. Moritz toward the Splugen Pass, which is approx.100km.
