Lovely apartment with wonderful balconies on both sides so always shade to sit in
This is a lovely apartment with views across to the lake at the front and of a typical Italian courtyard at the back. The best thing is that there are windows and balconies on both sides so always a table and chairs to sit at in the shade and a breeze going through the apartment. Lovely living area and nicely furnished. Lenno itself is very quiet with just a couple of nice restaurants but not a single shop to browse round. However, taking the ferry to Bellagio is easy and well worth the trip. Also lots of other towns to visit. Easy walk to the ferry and very uncrowded. Lovely and quiet at night. Nice pool but no shade whatsoever and no umbrellas to hide under. Good supermarket nearby. About 10 minutes walk into the town. All boat trips fun and worth doing but not much to do in Lenno itself.
Thank you for your comments Sophia. Glad you enjoyed your experience.
Lenno is a beautiful, tranquil village, great for relaxing at the lido cocktail lounge, the only golden sand man made beach here on the lake, visiting Villa Balbianello, setting for 007's Casino Royale and Star Wars and enjoying the restaurants, pizzeria's and bars along the lake front and around the village. Hence it is one of the most popular destinations for weddings due to it's unique location and views as well as a home to famous neighbours such as Richard Branson.
Weekly food and cloth markets take place all year of a Tuesday here in the centre of Lenno with regular festivals, this weekend pizzocheri pasta and polenta as well as music and fireworks...you must come back Sophia and see for yourself, you will be very welcome!
There are more touristy villages with more shops to be found close by in Tremezzo alongside the main road and Menaggio however for tranquility and beauty we think nothing beats Lenno. New umbrella for the pool coming soon! Thank you for your valued feedback.
Excellent Location, Beautiful Views and Relaxing!
We were a party of 3 and had a wonderful holiday staying in the ‘Vecchia Luna’ apartment. The apartment itself is modern, bright and has a very relaxing feel, with a great lake view. It is excellently located to enjoy the restaurants, bars and beach lido in Lenno, while still being within walking distance to the boats, buses and express train for visiting the other, more touristy villages around the lake. The local contact was Gemma who couldn’t have been nicer, she was very helpful and gave us lots of useful information about Lenno and Lako Como. The apartment was very well presented with excellent facilities and lovely hosts that made the holiday even more enjoyable. Elaine and Rennie were very helpful and answered any questions we had promptly and offered us a list of places to go and things to do. You can really tell that they have put a lot of love and care into the apartment decor and finishing touches. We will definitely be back to stay again on our next visit to Lake Como! Thanks again, we had a ball.
Lovely apartment with great views
This was a lovely property very near Lenno centre, just 10 minutes walk down hill. It was beautifully furnished with comfortable beds and shutters on all the windows. It's got an amazing view of Lake Como from the front balcony, and a nice view of a little square and mountains from the back.
The kitchen is well stocked. The only thing missing is a freezer or ice box in the fridge.
The shared pool is big but quite deep (about 1.2m throughout) so not great for non-swimmers.
We liked the location and being a little bit away from the other apartments so you're not overlooked by your neighbours. We'd definitely stay here again and recommend it to friends.
Ein wunderbarer Urlaub
So macht Urlaub in einer Ferienwohnung Spaß! Wir waren sehr zufrieden. Der Pool ist grandios, der Ausblick auf den See atemberaubend.
