Why the Owner Chose Menaggio CO, Italy:
Because Lake Como is probably one of the most spectacular places on Earth. That is why movie stars choose it to buy properties. The Little House on the Bridge is one of the most unique houses in an Historical Area of Menaggio. We immediatley fell in love with it, as soon as we saw it for sale.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
An extremely quiet and cool location. Excellent to relax after days of moving around visiting other places... ideal also for a winter holiday. The fireplace makes the house very cozy and we are just one hour and fifteen minutes away from top quality ski and cross country areas.
