About the property

2 bedrooms, 5 beds, 2 baths, living room, kitchen and terrace in the center Menaggio!

Wonderful property in historic building in the center of Menaggio with panoramic balcony over the city center, two bedrooms and two bathrooms, wi-fi throughout the property, crossed by a spiral staircase which leads up to the roof of the Church of Santo Stefano.

Recently renovated with incredible taste and preserving the Owner antiques, the property of the Diver is on three floors of incredible charm. The first dominates the stately living room with modern kitchen adequately separate, complete with everything, and balcony overlooking Via Caronti.

The rooms are spread over the remaining two levels. On the second floor double bedroom with two single beds. The third the majestic master bedroom with antique bed and sofa bed.

The two bathrooms, one service and the other with full bath, complete the picture.

The house of the Diver is the ideal choice for plunging into the atmosphere of the past and live a dream vacation, in a center of Lake Como in Italy that no longer exists.

Perfect location, comfortable home

  • 4 of 5

Wonderfully located within minutes to the bus & ferry stations and the main town square in Menaggio. We used this property as a base to begin from each day when visiting the other towns on the lake. We loved staying in the historic property and the bell tower made it easy to find our way back each night as it towered above everything else and could be seen wherever our adventures had taken us across town. The ringing of the bells was a surprise at first, but we quickly acclimated to expect and enjoy them as contributing to the overall experience.

The home is well cared for, has tons of charm and personality and had everything we needed for a comfortable stay. It was a lovely welcome to see a little bed had already been made up for our 3 year old daughter. The many levels of the home were great for travelling in a group because it gave each couple a bit of privacy and having 2 bathrooms made it easy to get 5 people out the door quickly in the morning. It did get increasingly hotter as you moved up the levels though. A fan in the lounge and each of the bedroom would have made big difference in maintaining a comfortable temperature, however, it is Italy in August so the heat wasn't a surprise.

I highly recommend this property and hope I may have a chance to stay here again!

Character, comfort, and wonderful location.

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay. The home is spacious, well-decorated, very clean, and has character. The three levels mean stairs but also plenty of space and privacy for everyone. The location is perfect. Everything you need--lake front cafes, shops and stores, post office--really are all around you. The ferry port with connections to Varenna, Bellagio and more, is an easy 10 minute walk and there is also bus station nearby. The lakefront Menaggio Lido with pool, sun loungers, cafe, and more is a pretty 5 minute walk along the lake. Highly recommend this Menaggio property.

Great apartment in the heart of Menaggio

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay here in the historic heart of Menaggio, a charming part of Italy. The apartment is beautifully decorated, clean and comfortable and is supplied with everything you could want. Having a washing machine was a real bonus as we had been travelling for some weeks. The street could be noisy during the day, but quietened down overnight. Parking could also be a problem during the day, but okay at night. The stairs could be challenging for some.

Gemütliche Wohnung im Herzen von Menaggio

  • 5 of 5

Schöne, gut ausgestattete Wohnung auf drei Etagen direkt im Herzen von Menaggio. Es sind nur wenige Schritte bis zum wunderschönen Comer See. Da man innerhalb von 5 Minuten an der Schiffsanlegestelle ist, haben wir unser Auto fast gar nicht gebraucht. Dank seiner zentralen Lage in der Mitte des Comer Sees und weil es durch seine Lage besonders viel Sonne genießt, ist Menaggio der ideale Ausgangspunkt für Ausflüge am Comer See.

Sehr netter Empfang und Betreung durch die Vermieterin.

Wohnen wie bei Freunden

  • 4 of 5

Wir bedanken uns ganz herzlich für die großzügige und liebevolle Aufnahme

in diesem Haus. Die Eignerin haben es geschafft, durch die Auswahl ihrer Möblierung

eine warme und gleichzeitig lichte Atmosphäre zu schaffen. Jeder Raum hat seine eigene

"Handschrift" und will erspürt werden. Die Küche ist sehr gut ausgestattet, was uns entgegenkommt, da wir gerne auch ab und an selber kochen. Die örtlichen Lebensmittelhändler haben ihren Anteil daran. Die Qualität ist sehr gut. Wir haben uns immer wieder gefreut, in dieses Haus zurückzukommen. Wir erfuhren, daß es ehemals als Unter-

bringung der Pfarrer in der Kirche direkt nebenan gedient hat. Das erklärt sicherlich auch,

daß die Zimmer alle übereinanderliegend über eine Treppe zu erreichen sind. Küche und

Wohnzimmer mit Balkon liegen auf einer Ebene. Sehr schön. Obwohl in der Altstadt liegend,

gab es recht viel Verkehr, da die Straße als "Abkürzung" genutzt wird. Vielleicht liegt es

daran, daß die Polder zur Fußgängerzone erst später im Jahr ausgefahren werden. Wer dieses

Haus wählt, sollte Glocken und Glockenspiele mögen, da die Kirche Nachbar ist. Wir fanden es sehr schön, den unterschiedlichen Melodien zu folgen. Arrivederci Ernst und Evelin

The Abode of the Diver is located precisely in the center of Menaggio!

It is not the machine essential for exploring the area. The property is located close to transport links and bus stops.

You can take the boat going to the pier, just 400 m away, or choose the ASF bus, with the bus stop just 200 m. If you arrive by car, you will have to be parked at the free parking at about 500 m from the house.

Menaggio is one of the most famous villages of Lake Como and is the ideal choice for your holiday full of sun, culture and art in one of the most beautiful areas of Lombardy.

The Abode of the Diver is in the town center, from where you can easily reach the magnificent lakeside promenade, the Piazza and the Tremezzina and Lenno with Villa Balbianello and Villa Carlotta, a 5-minute drive, or the High Lake with Gravedona and Domaso.

Do not miss the beach and Lido, delicious restaurants and clubs with the best ice cream in the area. For shoppers, the center of Menaggio, with its boutiques, is within reach.
