Immaculate Villa

  • 4 of 5

We stayed at Villa Lumbini from 3rd April to 9th April. Our party included ourselves (husband and wife in 30s), our 2 year old toddler, my 76 year old mother and my 84 year old Aunt, both of whom are fit and mobile.

The Villa itself is pristine and immaculately presented. We were delighted with the standard of cleanliness and the overall presentation of the Villa - beautiful! The grounds are well kept and the pool is lovely (although we were not able to use it due to the time of year).

On arrival we were met by an extrememly well stocked food basket including tea, coffee, various cereals, croissants, juice, wine and much, much more. This was a very pleasant surprise!

The villa was everything we had hoped for and more. Everyone in the party was equally delighted and we enjoyed a very comfortable stay.

We have no criticisms as such, however, when standing on the veranda, to the right there is a small builders yard which slightly spoiled the view. However, this had no impact on our holiday, caused no disruption, and you only had to turn your head a fraction to be met with the most stunning mountain and lake views. There is also a new Villa being built directly behind Villa Lumbini, however, again, this had no impact on our holiday or enjoyment. The Villa is near to completion.

The only other point I would raise about the villa is the fact that the internal stairs are solid granite. My 2 year old spent the entire time trying to scale the stairs which was a constant worry. This is not a criticism, merely something that potential guests should be aware of if children are involved in the holiday.

Danilo at Happy Holiday homes was extremely friendly and helpful, as were everyone we met on our stay. We would highly recommend Villa Lumbini.

Menaggio is a picturesque village nestled in a convenient central position on the lake. It is a historical lake side town with many quaint neighbourhoods which extend north along the lake and up into the green hills and valleys. Menaggio offers stunningly beautiful views of Lake Como and the majestic mountains which surround it overlooked by the Alps to the North.

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. 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.
