Oh my goodness, what a vacation we have had on Lake Como! It was beautiful! We can fully recommend this place to stay in. We felt like we had our own slice of paradise! The luxury condo was perfect for us and our private garden and luxury accommodation suited us just fine! We were so close by car to the golf club, the tennis in Loveno and the grocery stores and pretty charms of Menaggio. It was also great for reaching Varenna and Bellagio by ferry from Menaggio and also the villas were a 15 minute drive away!
Thank you for making us feel so welcome during our stay. Your friendly faces and helpfulness went along way in making our self-catering vacation even more fantastic
Thanks so much for a fantastic family hols on Lake Como. Our holiday home was just perfect! The fully-fitted kitchen was so handy and we had some great meals outside with the fun BBQ grill and lake view terrace. The girls were taken with the garden, sunloungers and swimming pool! Little Millie also had a great time in the paddling pool. It was great to have air-con alongside all the mod cons and the parking was great for our rental car. The complex was really luxurious and felt very exclusive. It was really well situated for reaching the central lake towns and attractions by car and we had such a fun time in the outdoor centre in Bellagio and tree climbing centre above Varenna.
We had a great stay in this lovely apartment and thoroughly enjoyed our first visit to Italy - we will be back for sure. I would also like to thank you for your friendly, helpful but also unobtrusive service and support during our stay. We would recommend your company highly. We would very highly recommend two restaurants which I do not think were referenced in your information pack.
We found both were highly rated on Trip Advisor: (a) La Vecchia Magnolia in Loveno. Friendly service, value for money and an excellent range of meat, fish, pasta and pizza dishes, ample parking very near the restaurant and the entertainment of being able to watch locals bowling; (b) For the most wonderful pizzas with many ingredients grown in their own gardens this is a must visit - best pizzas we have ever tasted. It is not cheap for pizzas but the people are wonderful, the setting is great, the food is lovely and it is value for money overall, as well as being open all day 7 days a week. http://pizzeriabalognett.com/ Of the restaurants mentioned in your guide Bilacus in Bellagio was our favourite. This had also been highly recommended by friends with family that live in the area. Gorgeous food and excellent service. Foxtown is worth a visit on a wet day but I would recommend customers either go early (before opening time) or don't bother, as there is insufficient parking for the amount of visitors. We spent nearly half an hour hunting for a parking space having arrived only half an hour or so after opening time.
Our favourite visit was to Villa del Balbianello. We drove to Lenno, parked up there and got the water taxi to the Villa. After a lovely visit on a very warm day we had an enjoyable coffee break and walk around Lenno thereafter. We thoroughly enjoyed our trips on the ferry to Bellagio and Varenna and spent some enjoyable time at Lake Lugano as well as Como. We ran out of time to get to Milan and would certainly do some more excursions as well as hiring a boat as and when we come back. A beautiful part of the world and highly recommended.
