About Italian Apartments
We relocated to the lake in 2007 from the Uk and live locally so are on hand whenever our guests need to get in touch! By renting your holiday home with us you can be sure of gaining the inside track to the lake and the local's view to ensure you get the very most from your stay and enjoy a personal experience second to none. By staying here with us we can recommend where to eat where the Italians dine, where to a hire a boat at the most competitive cost, show you the hidden places with the locals shop from finding the freshest baked bread to the best markets to the trattoria's where the Italian's dine away from the tourists mass or the very best bar's where the tastiest snacks keep coming with the drink's! If you need to hire a scooter or cycle, find the best hiking routes, or pathways around the lake for scenic walks we will point you in the right direction.
Why Italian Apartments chose Menaggio
The photos and views speak for themselves. The fantastic panoramic lake views are simply sublime. The home affords spacious living inside and out on the private garden and lake view balcony plus a swimming pool to relax in with more majestic lake and mountain panorama. Easy off road parking or just a 5 minute drive to amenities from restaurants and bars to ferry and lido beach bar. There are 3 restaurants including a pizzeria located within 10 minutes of the lake. Hence we receive many returning requests from guests.
What makes this Apartment unique
The home is located in Menaggio, the largest village on the lake with all amenities ideally located opposite Bellagio and just a ferry ride to Varenna, equally as pretty. There is a real local feel to the place. Meandering cobbled paths, a weekly market with superb local produce and seasonal ingredients, in additional to the pool at the home there is also a wonderful brand new lido to take in the sun and swimming pool to cool off next to the lake, authentic wine and cafe bars and superb home made gelateria to name just a few highlights. In short we offer more then letting our holiday home. We offer a unique insight into living like a local here on the lake to ensure you get the very most from your stay from the minute you arrive ensuring an unforgettable and personal experience.
Please consider the following guidelines when booking this property:
Canceled bookings will not receive a refund
Great views. Car is a must, whilst you can walk down you would likely not want to walk back up!
The apartment was very comfortable with everything you need for an extended stay
Suggest some firmer pillows would be nice in the bedroom - other than that perfect!
Nice view, great apartment in lovely cozy town
Great memorable holiday
Wonderful Lake Como Holiday (Menaggio)
We had a wonderful week in Menaggio on Lake Como. Barrie and Julie (the property managers) met us in town and led us up to the apartment. This was good, as the road has many twists and turns. They gave us a great introduction to the apartment as well as an overview of the area and suggestions of things to do, places to see. We followed their lead and took the ferries to Bellagio and Varenna, rented a boat one day, and drove over to Lugano another. Barrie even suggested a gelato place in Milan (we stayed there prior to flying back home), which was fabulous.
The apartment was great. Everything you might need. We ate in most mornings and two dinners and found everything we looked for. A car is a necessity as the apartment is up the hill (which provides the fantastic views) and makes walking down to town quite a challenge. The pool sits just above the apartment and has several chairs for lounging and an outdoor shower.
Thanks again to Barrie and Julie. I have a feeling we'll be seeing you again.
