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.

Room(s) with a view
The wonderful thing about this apartment is that it just lends itself to chilling out completely. The view of Lake Como from this apartment must rank among the best and the wonderful thing about it is that you can sit and admire it all day if you wish. You can have breakfast, lunch and dinner looking at the view, you can even lie in bed at night and look at the view. There is plenty to do on the lake and plenty of places to visit but when the apartment is so comfortable and so well-equipped, from time to time it is so nice just to chill and do nothing. When you do want to go out, however, Barrie has plenty of advice about the best places for the apero, the best places to eat, the best places to buy your wine and your olive oil, it makes everything such a pleasure which is what holidays are all about, and why we return every year.
Stylish Apartment with million dollar views
My second stay in Menaggio and after the first I was very keen to stay up the hill this time and fully enjoy the breath taking views. The view at Casa Paradiso is simply jaw dropping, I have not seen a better view anywhere. The view has an amazing peacefulness to it that seems to instantly wipe away memories of the daily rat race we came from. Sitting on the balcony on a Friday evening with a bottle of wine, watching fire works and all the activity around the lake was magical.
Casa Paradiso is a short but solid walk to town due to it being mostly up or down hill depending on which way you are going. There are some great restaurant’s a very short walk from the apartment. We decided the La Magnolia Trattoria would be our morning coffee stop before our various adventures around the lake. However it soon became our regular for everything once we found out how good the food was. It was only later in the week that we found out it was the number 1 rated restaurant on Trip Adviser.
The apartment is huge and very well furnished. Plenty of room just to relax and soak up the atmosphere of a wonderful place. There really is nothing bad I could say, just the perfect place to stay around Lake Como.
Very spacious apartment. Fantastic view !!!
Very quiet place. Amazing view with terrace on the Lake. Central location to visit surrounding areas (Como, Bellagio, Varenna, Lugano,...)
Lovely apartment, stunning views
Clean spacious apartment. Lovely setting. Great pool. Short walk to nearby restaurants. Lovely family holiday.
Best Lake Como Apartment - breathtaking view
It was a toss up between two houses when i was looking for an apartment at Lake Como, the view won! This house in up hill as opposed to right on the water, hence the view is breathtaking. Although i would recommend that you get a rental car if you want to stay here, i did see people walking up and down, but a car would make your stay here very convenient.
The house itself is spotless, three bedrooms, large living room and dining room, two terraces and garden....everything you could possibly ask for to enjoy your lake vacation. Barrie is a great host, easy to connect with when we had questions but left us alone to enjoy when we were all settled.
Short drive to downtown Menaggio, where all the restaurants, gelateria, ferry dock, boat rentals are, super convenient. We think Menaggio is a very good base for us to explore lake Como, it's relatively smaller than Bellagio and Varenna, but we like that "live like local" feeling, especially after the last ferry left, it's very very nice. And i have to mention that it's very safe and kids friendly, we traveled with our 5 year old, she had so much fun and the girl at ice-cream shop knew her by name:))
Other than all the villages, a few activities that i'd highly recommend:
1. rent a boat from AC boat rental (right in Menaggio) to drive on the lake, we did it twice because it's that good, priced reasonably
2. if you are golfer, check out the Menaggio golf course on the hills, you could rent all the gears at a reasonable price, we did 9 holes and it was fantastic!
We enjoyed our stay so much that we miss it already!
Beautiful property with stunning views
We stayed at Cass Paradiso st the end of May. It is a really spacious and well kept property with great outdoor spaces. The master bedroom was lovely with its own large terrace with lake view . The upstairs terrace and garden was equally as lovely with the same stunning views that we never got bored of. The property was very well equipped with everything we needed. We hired a car as we wouldn’t be able to walk to the main town down the hill/stairs. The car also enabled us to visit some other nearby towns such as Tremezzo and Bellagio as the property was so central. The owners Barry and Julie were very friendly, helpful and available to answer any questions. Roy who was looking after the property and greeted us on our first day was really knowledgeable about the area and again available for any help we needed. I would certainly stay at this property again.

Casa Paradiso has three bedrooms, 2 bathrooms including a master bedroom en suite with shower looking out to the Lake, a third WC, and all mod cons to make your stay memorable. It is part of a small group of houses and apartments (8 in total) that share a common driveway, security and a pool with 180 degree breathtaking views of the lake from Bellagio to Villa La Gaeta instantly recognisable from the Bond film Casino Royale. Wifi, ipad docking and bbc world service included. Pretty piazzas, ancient churches,lakeside walks. A shingle beach at the lidos, cafe culture, little narrow picture postcard streets, lazy lunches with local delicacies represent a typical day out in Menaggio.Take the water and hire a boat hire for a memorable day out are just are few examples of life here. But remember, if a relaxing break with nothing more than a book and glass of wine is your idea of bliss, doing nothing much is a theme of lakeside living. Menaggio is the provincial lake side village and incorporates almost every conceivable amenity for your stay here on the lake from bank to supermarket, fruit and veg stores, geletaria, internet cafe, geletaria's, lake fishmonger, cafes, restaurants, beach, ferry and of course wonderful lakeside scenery.
