From the beautiful lake view dining room, doors lead directly out to a heavenly lake view terrace.

With its classic colonnade to frame the lake and comfortable day beds to hand, the scene is set for daytime daydreaming and carefree enjoyment.

The private lakefront garden also benefits from a BBQ too, for a less formal setting in which to host summertime dinner parties.

The beautiful villa continues to delight; with three spacious double bedrooms that each oozes a tranquil quality in which to unwind. The master suite boasts lakefront views and an adjoining sunny lake view balcony, perfect for soaking up romantic sunset aperitifs. The suite further benefits from a luxury double bed, an en-suite shower room, mirrored wardrobes and a classic palette of soft nautical tones to provide a good night’s rest.

The golden hues of the second double bedroom provide a timeless regal charm; within a spacious room that boasts wonderful lake views, mirrored wardrobes and a wall-mounted TV. A third couple will feel very welcome within the handsome appeal of the third double bedroom, which enjoys tranquil garden views and is furnished with a sumptuous double bed and elegant wooden wardrobe.

A second family bathroom with bath tub and shower complete the internal layout of this beautiful retreat. A washing machine and tumble dryer also feature for added convenience.

By booking this holiday home you will get free acces to the lido di Menaggio. The Lido di Menaggio has swimming pools, a restaurant, a bar/discotheque, a kids club, boat rentals, a sandy beach, kite surfing and various sportive activities to do.

Situated just 6 minutes drive away from Menaggio, guests will be able to reach the wide selection of modern amenities with ease. Alongside authentic cafes, Italian restaurants and boutique shops, the picturesque resort town is home to a family-friendly Lido, a car and passenger ferry service and direct bus and road links to the Menaggio & Cadenabbia Golf Club, the Loveno Tennis Club, the villa attractions along the Tremezzina shore and also Lake Lugano.

The ferry stop provides carefree convenience when looking to explore the resort towns of Varenna and Bellagio, as well as to reach the Bellagio Extreme Sports Club, the Jungle Raider Tree climbing park above Varenna and the Piani di Bobbio Ski resort. A holiday on the central lake further enables guests to enjoy a refreshing lake swim, enjoy an afternoon of sailing, boat hire and water sports, take an ambient hillside hike in and wine and dine the night away; with lake view aperitifs, wine tasting, fine dining and dancing at the beautiful night time Lidos.

San Siro is also situated within close proximity of Lugano city (45 minutes drive), Como (58 minutes drive) and Milan (1 hour 29 minutes drive).

San Siro:

San Siro (formally Santa Maria Rezzonico) - situated in one of the best spots on Lake Como, where the scenery of the lake and the mountains is something really special - a place where you can relax and enjoy the beauty and tranquility of the lake. There is a secluded lane in Rezzonico which stands out as the quintessential Lago di Como path. Entirely residential except for the Ristorante Lauro located about a third of the way down, the stone work of the walls and the patina of the cobbles exhibited the kind of character that only time can create and the love of people who live there can maintain.

Santa Maria di Rezzonico (as it was formally known) is a small town dominated by the remains of the Casrtello della Torre, a little more than 200 meters above the waters edge, of which remain only the foundations of the wall and a 14th century crenellated Tower.

San Siro is a pretty, historic hamlet where you can still feel the atmosphere of the ancient past and view the beautiful castle. San Siro’s town centre is where you can find more shops, food stores and restaurants as well as public beaches on the lake. On shore of the lake there are water sports facilities (boat rental, sailing, surfing), and there are a number of scenic walks on your doorstep.

Menaggio is only about a 5 min. drive away - a thriving town from where you can explore all the beautiful villages around the lake from the main ferry terminal.

average rating of 5.0 based on 1 reviews

Un endroit magique

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé une semaine de réelle tranquillité et de régal pour les yeux ; la vue donnant sur le lac est magnifique et la villa est très spacieuse et très propre ; à noter toutefois que l’accès n’est pas adapté aux personnes âgées en raison de nombreuses marches pavées, mais qui donnent par ailleurs tout leur charme aux extérieurs. La maison , sans vis à vis, est très sécurisée et l’on s’y sent tout de suite à l’abri . Je recommande vivement l’agence Lake Como Homes à Menaggio ; leur accueil a été parfait ; la personne qui nous a accompagnée à la villa était très serviable, et nous avons eu en prime un panier de bienvenue rempli de bonnes choses. Merci infiniment ; Nous avons été accueillis comme on aimerait toujours l’être ; Je conseille vivement cette agence

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.
