The following feed back is purely for the owner to be aware of some possible points that could be raised by future clients.
If arriving late evening ensure you have directions not only for love como office but the property itself tele communications can be poor in the area so can be difficult to get in touch with someone for help.
The villa itself is larger than expected and set in beautiful grounds and the interior is decked out with traditional furniture a few points that could be improved on was bedding was clean but would expect mattress covers on beds for hygiene and the gas hob in kitchen was tricky to ignite but you soon get the hang of it also the wifi was not functional
These are only small issues and didn't feel the need to raise them whilst there to the office but feel if the owner is made aware and acts on them the property would be excellent.
I would certainly recommend this villa to people visiting this area it has charm and set in a lovely position and is good value especially for larger family groups.
My Stay at Casa Rosa
My family and I had originally planned to stay at Casa Menaggio, but when we arrived and realized that the bedroom situation was not going to suit us, Vittoria Solano (the LoveComo rep we worked with) accommodated us immediately and found the perfect location for us at Casa Rosa. The owners of the house were also SO wonderful and welcoming! We felt right at home and took full advantage of the pool and proximity to downtown Menaggio. Grazie mille for making our summer vacation an unforgettable experience!
A villa with a view of Lake Como
Casa Menaggio is an apartment within a villa set in a lovely garden setting with a partial view of Lake Como. The apartment is nicely furnished and has a nice ambience but was a bit light on in the kitchen, only 2 coffee mugs when it sleeps 6, a dishwasher that you can't use because it has no markings on the dial, no electric kettle or toaster. It is very centrally located to Menaggio which is a very pretty town with a lovely promenade along the lake edge. We did enjoy our week there and would recommend to others.
A week in Casa Menaggio
If you dream of staying in a classic Italian villa then this is the place for you. Five minutes from the bars, shops and restaurants, a little longer on the return journey but worth every step to get to the sunny balcony where you can enjoy a quiet relaxing long cold drink or chill on the enormous sofa in the lounge. The garden is the perfect place to sit with a book before heading out for the day. The ferries take you everywhere you need to go although they do not always run according to the timetable, alternatively take the mini train from in front of the lake to Lenno, a lovely afternoon. Menaggio is the perfect base to visit the delights of Lake Como
Thank you for the excellent review and we are delighted you had a wonderful break in Lake Como and enjoyed the Casa Menaggio and the surroundings.
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.
