Studio Apartment For 2 Persons

**15% Discount off all new bookings for holidays taken during 2014**

Boasting the ideal location on the central lake with all the attractions and activities of Lake Como close to hand this beautifully modernised Studio property (ID 822) provides guests with luxurious lake view self-catering accommodation.

The property is situated to the principal floor of an elegant purpose-built period residence and has been refurbished to a high quality with wood flooring and furnished with modern touches and antique pieces to create a comfortable and enjoyable place to stay.

A spacious open plan living area enjoys both contemporary and period charm and is furnished with a welcoming sitting area with easy chairs and a modern double bed, an antique wardrobe and a stylish contemporary kitchenette with lake view dining area. The pair of French doors open directly out on one of the property’s best features, its private sunny balcony terrace. From here guests can enjoy sunbathing or a glass of wine whilst taking in the incredible central lake views towards Bellagio and Varenna.

Cadenabbia:

Cadenabbia is a popular and naturally beautiful resort destination along the desirable central western shore of Lake Como between the resort towns of Tremezzo and Menaggio. The resort is popular especially by the British during the Spring and Autumn time and is part of the commune of Griante; of which the main historical centre is situated behind the hotel lined facade of Cadenabbia up on the breathtaking hillside.

The Cadenabbia lakefront features elegant hotels, beautiful historical villas and local bars and restaurants to cater for locals and visitors. Cadenabbia is also the site of the first Anglican Church in Italy, built here in 1891 as well as home to the famous stronghold of the infamous Lake Como pirate, ‘Antonio the Crazy’ who occupied Griante Castle during the early 1500’s.

Visitors can enjoy the day here walking along the scenic promenade, visiting the famous Villa Carlotta with its beautiful botanical gardens and fascinating past, enjoy a swim at Cadenabbia’s Lido, relax with an excellent cappuccino and cake in one of the many cafés, enjoy a picnic in the lakeside park in Tremezzo, share a romantic dinner with a loved one at one of the many fine restaurants or take the Cadenabbia car and passenger ferry to Varenna, Bellagio and Menaggio.

For those feeling a little more energetic a walk along the Alpine trail up to the San Martino Church is highly recommended. The church is perched high above on the Griante mountainside and boasts spectacular views over Lake Como once you’ve made it to the top!

The historical village of Lenno is also situated very close by and is said to be the oldest on Lake Como. The village features a very pretty lakefront with promenade, bars, and restaurants and a passenger ferry service and Lido. The famous Villa Balbianello is situated on the other side of the bay of Lenno and can be reached by water taxi or by foot through the woodland grounds.

Lombardy - Lake Como Area:

The Italian Lakes are a little slice of paradise. Elegant ribbons of blue water stretch out ahead, folded into the sun-baked foothills, with a spectacular back drop of the snow-capped Alps.

Lake Como offers hidden treasures just waiting for the visitor to discover them: charming corners forgotten by time, lakeside villages where nothing seems to have changed for centuries.

It is steeped in history with an immense collection of churches, architectural masterpieces and works of art covering the centuries. The lake is situated in a basin surrounded by wooded mountains, and offers an extremely varied landscape, with its' shores featuring a succession of pastures, and woods as well as harsh and impressive rock formations.

All this alongside elegant, lakeside villas with sub-tropical gardens, which provide a haven of peace and tranquillity and chic resorts such as Varenna, Bellagio, Menaggio and Como itself.

Warming, in spriing and graced with natural beauty, the lakes are still a place to draw breath and wonder. Lake Como, oriented north-south, ringed by characterful old villages often wedged onto narrow beaches between rugged cliffs and water. Those classic lake images of flower strewn balconies, Baroque gardens and splendid waterside villas can be found here in abundance. Dotted around and between the lakes are some of Italy's finest art cities, such as Milan, Verona & Bergamo.

The most romantic and picturesque villages on the lake are Santa Maria Rezzonico, Varenna (15 min by ferry) & Bellagio (8 min by ferry), Lenno (visit Villa Balbianello, location for 007's Casino Royale as well as Villa Gaeta, right here in Menaggio) & Laglio (where George Clooney owns Villa Oleandra).

Guestbook comments from the manager

Our apartment was lovely and the views from it on our balcony...amazing!



Our favourite restaurant by far that was close enough to walk to was Red and White in Tremezzo, food and staff were outstanding.



Lenno was beautiful to visit and sit relaxing whilst drinking by the lake.



We will be returning to Lake Como and would definitely stay in the same place it was ideal.

Road noise and a deceptive lake view picture

  • 2 of 5
The picture doesn't show the very busy and loud road directly beneath the terrace and the parking lot across the street. Don't stay here if road noise bothers you because you will hear it from early morning until very late at night every few seconds, including a lot of loud motorcycles. But if noise doesn't bother you, it is a nice view. it could have been a lot cleaner, especially the floors - sticky. And note there are no laundry facilities in the apt or building. The management agency told us there was before we came but that turned out to be false. They also did not answer their "24 hour" emergency number when called, nor could I get through to the management office without many attempts.

Terrible road noise - this deceptive "lake view" picture doesn't show the busy road and parking lot.

Terrible road noise - this deceptive "lake view" picture doesn't show the busy road and parking lot.
  • 3 of 5
The picture of the "lake view" for this apartment is deceptive in that it does not show the very busy and loud road directly below the terrace, i.e., between the apartment and the lake. Nor does it show the parking lot between the road and the water. It makes the use of the terrace far less enjoyable than picture implies and the lake view is compromised by the parking lot. I never would have stayed in this apartment had the photograph been complete. The road is the only way north/south on the lake and cars and loud motorcycles whiz by every few seconds all day long from early morning until very late night. It is almost like being on a busy highway. But if road noise doesn't bother you then this place is nice. But I also note that the management misrepresented that there were laundry facilities in the building that we could use. This turned out to be false and they made no attempt to help us locate an alternative laundry other than to say that there was one in a nearby town, with no directions or name. We also had to sweep the apartment upon our arrival as the cleaners had done a poor job of that.

From the residence guests can enjoy dining at the very good authentic Italian restaurants and guests can conveniently park their car at the public car park nearby.

The Cadenabbia lake shore is one of the best locations from which to explore the popular nearby attractions and also the wider surroundings. A range of local shops, a highly recommended authentic lake front restaurant, the newly modernised Lido and car and passenger ferry port are situated here and some fantastic hiking trails can be found in the locality. One such hillside trail starts from Griante and takes 1-2 hours to reach the San Martino church which boasts spectacular lake views of Bellagio, Varenna and the Tremezzina shore.

Guests can also easily reach the nearby attractions of Villa Carlotta and Villa Balbianello as well as the cafes, bars, restaurants and landscaped park in nearby Tremezzo and the nearby picturesque town centre of Menaggio.

Both Lenno and Menaggio enjoy Lido’s with sandy beaches and in addition Menaggio offers outdoor swimming pools also.

Nearby activities include hiking, cycling, swimming, tennis, golf, quad biking, horse riding, canoeing, sailing, power boat hire, windsurfing and paragliding. A truly magical way to see the Lake is by taking a seaplane tour from Como city’s aero club or by simply hiking on the beautiful mountainside and lakeside trails.

Transport links are excellent from Cadenabbia with the main Regina Statale lake road passing through it, directly leading towards the south and Como city and to north of the lake towards Valtellina and Madesimo ski resort. The car and passenger ferry service is a great way in which to explore the central lake and famous ’golden triangle’ towns and from Menaggio the beautiful Italian Swiss Lake Lugano is just a 20 minutes drive away. Train services to Milan operate from Varenna and Como city.
