LA PIAZZA MENAGGIO

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

We enjoyed our stay in La Piazza and found it to be in the most perfect location. The directions that were given made it easy to find your office in Menaggio as well as La Piazza itself. The apartment was close to everything yet was quiet in the evenings to allow a good night's sleep. The wonderfully comfortable beds and high standard of bed linens added to our comfort. La Piazza was absolutely spotless and the furniture was quite nice. Staying in Menaggio was a great choice...busy enough to have everything you might need close by and yet not as 'touristy' as some of the other towns.

La Piazza Menaggio

  • 5 of 5
Hi everyone,



I would first like to express my thanks for the assistance we received during our stay. All the staff were polite, enthusiastic, and helpful.



I would make the following comments about our experience:-



1. Booking was relatively easy.

2. The pre-arrival instructions were particularly helpful. I greatly appreciated the inclusion of photos (e.g., your office; the entry to the building where the apartment was; the approach to the garage).

3. The property was particularly well located for a visitor to Menaggio.

4. Although the views from the apartment are somewhat limited, they are still quite good. The fact we struck beautiful weather for most of our stay no doubt added to our appreciation of them.

5. The apartment was quite spacious, and certainly adequate for our requirements.

6. I found the village of Menaggio quite attractive and enjoyable. It has a wonderful, lake-side location, enhanced by the snow-capped moutains towering above it. I liked sitting in the main square and watching the locals; and walking through the narrow, sometimes dark, village streets.

7. Probably the highlight for us was finding our way to the Chiesetta, perched on a high spur just south of the village. We enjoyed its peacefulness, and the spectacular views to the village and the lake.

8. We also very much enjoyed the agriturismo restaurant recommended by Andrea, a few minutes' drive up into the hills behind Menaggio.

9. We also had a lovely drive to Lake Lugano. It was a clear winter's day, and the reflection of snow capped mountains and village buildings on the silver water of the lake was spectacular.



I only have one real suggestion. It is that a list of instructions be left in the apartment. It should include instructions on how to use the thermostat/heating control; and perhaps the TV (we had no difficulty with this, but other people might).



As you can tell, we very much enjoyed our time in Menaggio. We may well come again, though it is a long way from where we live, and we could not come for quite some time.

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.
