<p><span>We stayed at in Acquaseria Storico and it was lovely only wished we could have stayed longer. The accommodation had everything we needed sometimes we ate in and the other time we went out to eat at the two resturants.&nbsp;</span></p> <p><span>We managed to purchase everything we needed at the local shops there is a larger supermarket in Menaggio if needed along with lots of other shops.</span></p> <p><span>The ferry service is really good along with the local buses, because of this we did not need to hire a car. the view of the lake is lovely while sitting on the balcony at villa patricia this was our favorite place to sit and have a drink and just relaxed. the local people are very friendly and helpful nothing to much trouble. this has been one of the nicest holidays we have had, we thought it had everything you can do as much or as little as you wish to, you can get a train to Milan and the swiss border is not very far away.</span></p>

<p><span>We have just come back from lake como. We stayed at the lovely Italian house Acquseria Storico which is very well equipped beautiful view of the lake really stunning, lovely to sit on the balcony and eat and admire the view of lake como, the local village has two lovely resturants which has a large menu catering for all. One restaurant is on the main road and the second beside the lake both serving good food, we used the local transport which is very reasonable and you buy the tickets at the local bar everybody is very friendly and helpful there are local shops , supermarket, bar, grocers etc you can either catch the bus to como the main town or ferry.</span></p> <p><span>Como is for keen shoppers with some lovely shops or you can relax at the local towns and watch the world go by. We visited menaggio where we caught a ferry to Verenna and Bellagio - both beautiful here you can watch the world go by while eating lovely Italian ice cream which is a must. This is far the prettiest place we have visited and we have been to many countries we will definitely return to villa patricia again next year</span></p>
