MENAGGIO FANTASTICO

Menaggio Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Two stunning apartments located near the central Piazza in Menaggio

Based in one of the most desirable locations on the whole of Lake Como, these two apartments offer guests a truly unique holiday with no need to rent a car.

Menaggio Fantastico (ID 189) ~ Sleeps 6 guests with 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, spacious living area and a fully-fitted kitchen in this luxury Penthouse Apartment in the heart of Menaggio's main Piazza.

La Piazza Menaggio (ID 186) ~ sleeps 5 guests with 3 bedrooms, a full modern kitchen, 2 bathrooms and modern contemporary decor. Based right in the Piazza Tomasso Grossi, it offers guests flexible accomodation right in the heart of Menaggio.

For those of you who need to keep in touch with work or family, Wi-Fi Access is available in both properties.

Both apartments are perfect if you are with or without a car, as Menaggio's ferry port is less than a 4 minute walk away.

Menaggio also offers fantastic transport links, restaurants, bars, a beach and the beautiful Menaggio Lido.

Menaggio ~ The perfect location:

Menaggio is about half way up the western side of Lago Como, an attractive and thriving town in the summer months and little more quiet in the winter!

Accessible by car from Como at the south end of the lake, or Lugano in Switzerland, across the pass via Porlezza (340) above Menaggio, but also by ferry from Bellagio and Varenna (where there is a train from Milan).

The heart of the 'old' town gathered around Piazza Garibaldi close to Menaggio's harbour features mostly 19th century buildings in the Italian alpine style painted in muted tones. The higher part of the town has a more medieval aspect featuring narrow alleys, steep stairs and stone buildings.

The old and 'new', the shops, restaurants, cafes, public squares and alleyways, the tree shaded lakeshore promenades bordered by flowers, and the well-kept villas form a wonderful and serene place to holiday.

Boutique shops blend with historical churches, Italian architecture and bustling Cafes; which line the beautiful shopping parade leading off from the Piazza and the characterful cobbled back alleys, which await your exploration.

The Public Lido Beach and Swimming Pool, Children's Park, Mini golf are all just a minute's walk away also. Conveniently the Bus and Taxi service runs from the main Piazza, and the fast and convenient Menaggio car and pasenger Ferry is just a 3 minutes walk away.

Golf & Skiing:

Italy's oldest golf course, established in 1907 with 18 holes Par 70, is located above Menaggio near Croce, in Grandola ed Uniti, approx. 20 min. by car. Tel: +39 344 321 03. Green Fees: Weekdays EU 55, Weekends and Holidays EU 70 Euros; Golf Cart Rental EU 36. Restaurant Golf at the club serves fantastic food and is well recommended.

The closest major ski resort is Madesimo toward the Splugen Pass, which is approx. 1 hr 20 min. by car. St. Moritz in Switzerland is only 90 km by car. Other ski resorts are located in the Valtellina near Morbegno. The lake is beautiful to relax next to all year long - the scenery in the winter is some of the most striking, as the air is crisp, the visibility near perfect and the mountains capped in white snow.

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.

Guestbook comments from the manager
Here are our thoughts on La Piazza Menaggio, which we rented from you for one week:



We located the property quite easily, and it was exactly as represented on your website. Everything was clean, and the appliances worked perfectly. Your team was most helpful in every way.



We do have one suggestion for improvement, and that is to make sure all the keys work easily in the locks. The lock to the downstairs (outside) door was very difficult to open, and one set of our keys was also difficult to use in opening the front door of the residence.



Our favorite restaurants included Ristorante di Paolo and La Baita for dinners, and a smaller restaurant (La Trattoria di Nogara) that offered free wifi along with very nice food and good service.



If we return to Lake Como, we will most certainly ask for your help in locating a residence. Thank you for your help.

A dream vacation.

  • 5 of 5
We love to imagine that we could be your guest again someday soon. Menaggio Fantastico was a perfect place to be. Initially, Harold, you said if we chose that apartment we would feel "the luckiest people on the Lake." Indeed, that was 100% true. What a happy time!

Here are some suggestions which apply to Menaggio Fantastico specifically, and then ones for any visitor to Lake Como.

For Menaggio Fantastico:
1.) Directions for operating the dish washer, the washing machine and dryer, and the television should be written down in English, probably by the owners, and left where they can be found.
2.) Americans are spoiled, I know, but we always wanted more ice. The apartment needed probably 4 new ice trays.
3.) We had 2 sets of keys for 6 people. More sets of keys would be nice. Also, HHH should have a set for themselves in the office.
4.) Speaking of keys, we still do not understand what we did to lock ourselves INTO the apartment so that we couldn't get out again, thus having to disturb you for professional help. A note of instruction on this matter would help too.

Now for favorite things to do:
1.) Every day I wanted to ride the boats. Truly, it wouldn't matter where, just ride. I think it was because of seeing so much and feeling as if I'd stepped back in time to an era when riding the boats was how one got around.
Usually the outing would include lunch in another town and visiting some shops, which I'll come back to in a minute.

2.) Go for walks or hikes.
a.) Our very favorite hike was up to the Shrine above town and La Crocetta, taking along a light picnic lunch. We did this twice.
b.) Next favorite: Villa Sebelloni, in Bellagio. This walk is in the Rockefeller Estate (entry fee) which is a long, mostly uphill walk with a guide leading the way. Her office is in the square tower which is to the back right corner of the plaza, as one faces the Church in Bellagio. The views in every direction are magnificent.
c.) Another really nice walk was around Lago Piano, a very rural walk which goes through a bird sanctuary. This was another "step back in time", which was quite other worldly. This walk is # 7, described in the brochure "A Piedi nei Dintorni di Menaggio", which the English speaking lady at the tourist center downstairs provided. She was very helpful to us.

Golf:

There are Golf clubs around Lake Como: The Menaggio & Cadenabbia Golf Club is Italy's oldest golf course. Established in 1907 with 18 holes Par 70, it is located above Menaggio near Croce, in Grandola ed Uniti, approx. 20 min. by car. Tel: +39 344 321 03. Green Fees: Weekdays €55, Weekends and Holidays €70 Euros; Golf Cart Rental €36.

Restaurant Golf at the club serves fantastic food and is well recommended.. Guests are always welcome, please call beforehand to check course rules. Golf Club Menaggio: (Menaggio Como).

Skiing:

This beautiful lake region of Italy is not the best for skiing as you may imagine, despite its scenery, crisp air and near perfect visibilty and mountains capped in winter snow. It does however have Skiing opportunities at local resorts for a day out.

There is a small ski area on Mt. Lema, not more than 10 km from Lugano, but you have to be lucky to have enough snow for skiing. In Ticino, the local Swiss Canton, the best places to ski are probably either San Bernardino (south of the pass of the same name) or Airolo (south of Gotthard pass). Both are reachable in about 1 hour by car across the Swiss border.

There are direct trains to Airolo as well from Lugano and hence from Italian Stations. To S. Bernardino there is only a bus connection. For more snow try Andermatt (on the north side of Gotthard pass) which has normally good snow conditions and a good choice of runs.

The closest major ski resorts are St. Moritz and Madesimo toward the Splugen Pass which is approx.100km.
