Guestbook comments from the owner

We kijken terug op een geweldig verblijf in Vila Mimosa. Het is een heerlijk comfortabel huis , prachtig gesitueerd met een adembenemend uitzicht over het Comomeer.

3 slaapkamers met 3 badkamers was heerlijk, aangezien we met 2 volwassen kinderen en aanhang gebruik maakten van de Vila.

Alles prima schoongemaakt, we werden zelfs enorm verrast door de cadeaumand met vele boodschappen en eerste levensbehoeften die we aantroffen in een perfect geoutilleerde keuken. Complimenten en onze dank daarvoor. Geweldig!



De ontvangst was prima, niets dan lof. Doordat we een boot meenamen hadden we wat extra tijd nodig bij aankomst, dit alles was geen probleem. Een warm onthaal.



We hebben het meest genoten van de natuur en het varen op het meer uiteraard. De vele mogelijkheden om aan te leggen en een koffie of lunch te gebruiken op een terras in één van de authentieke dorpjes was top. Daarnaast was ons favoriete plekje om aan te leggen en wat uurtjes door te brengen het dorpje Varenna, aan de overkant. Zo sfeervol en pittoresk, wij komen daar zeker terug.



We zullen zeer waarschijnlijk terugkomen bij het Comomeer , in dat geval maken we graag weer gebruik van jullie diensten. Ook zullen we Happy Holiday Homes aanbevelen bij de ons bekende Comomeer vakantiegangers.



Translated to English below:

We look back on a great stay in Vila Mimosa. It is a wonderfully comfortable home, beautifully situated with breathtaking views over Lake Como.

3 bedrooms with 3 bathrooms was great, since we used the Vila. 2 adult children and supporters

Everything cleaned fine, we were even surprised by the huge gift basket with groceries and necessities that we found in a perfectly equipped kitchen. Congratulations and our thanks. Great!



The reception was fine, nothing but praise. Because we took a boat we needed on arrival, some extra time this was not a problem. A warm welcome.



We most enjoyed the nature and boating on the lake, of course. The many opportunities to make and use on a terrace in one of the traditional villages, a coffee or lunch was top. In addition, our favorite place to moor and bring the village of Varenna, on the other side. Lot of hours was So atmospheric and picturesque, we will certainly go back.



We will most likely come back to Lake Como, in which case we would like to use your services again. We will also recommend the Happy Holiday Homes we know Como vacationers.

Stunning luxury home; fantastic base for the Lake!

  • 5 of 5

Villa Mimosa is absolutely first class. The property is extremely well crafted; stone archways, high quality fixtures, doors and windows, top appliances. You do not feel that you are in a rental property, it's more like visiting well-off friends with wonderful taste. The pictures here do NOT do the property justice!

Each bedroom is very well appointed and enjoys lovely views. The layout allows for privacy but the great room upstairs has plenty of room for everyone. The ping pong table was a big hit with our group and the hot tub is spotless and high quality.

I recommend Villa Mimosa completely; it is a perfect place to enjoy your stay on Lake Como!

There are Golf clubs around Lake Como: The Menaggio & Cadenabbia Golf Club is Italy's oldest golf course.

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).

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 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.100km.
