About the property

8 Persons, 4 Beds, 4 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms

Relish some lake view luxury!

Boasting far reaching lake views to write home about, this modern 4 bed villa provides the perfect hillside getaway on the central lake.

With its close proximity to the championship golf and the highlights of Menaggio and the central lake, the scene is set for memorable year-round holidays!

The luxury 3 storey villa is perfectly suited for accommodating groups of 8, and is conveniently pet-friendly too; for the ultimate home-away-from-home experience.

To the ground floor, guests can easily soak up a spot of holiday indulgence to the living area, which oozes a carefree ambience in which to unwind and entertain with guests. Surrounding the ambient warmth of the open fireplace, the stylish leather sofa suite enables guests to cosy up in the winter months and enjoy a favourite film, to the SAT TV and DVD player provided.

Next to the sitting area, a fabulous dining area for 8 is adorned by a striking light feature and spectacular lake views; for that instant ‘wow factor’. An iPod docking station is also on hand to make sure your dinner party hits the right note.

Leading through from the dining area, the fully-equipped contemporary kitchen diner is suitably stylish; with chic slate grey cabinets complimented by integrated appliances that include a cooker hob, oven, dishwasher alongside a kettle, coffee machine and toaster.

The villa was simply made for entertaining; with the basement home to a striking wine cellar. Here guests can savour the perfect wine tasting evening; alongside the ambience of a roaring fire and candlelight.

Outside, the private sunny garden offers a lovely setting for hosting evening drinks at sunset and for savouring unforgettable lake view moments in the summertime, with an ‘alfresco’ BBQ or two.

All equally stylish and inviting, the villa’s 4 luxury bedrooms are set for savouring a guilt-free holiday slumber.

The ground floor double bedroom provides a wonderful guest room, whilst the first floor comprises two double bedrooms ideal for couples (each with their own lake view terrace) and a fourth bedroom furnished with a twin set of single beds.

A contemporary bathroom fitted with a power shower features to the ground floor, whilst upstairs a chic family bathroom with bath tub and overhead shower perfectly complements the principal sleeping accommodation. Modern laundry facilities also feature within the villa, for added convenience.

Outside, the tranquil lake view garden paints a scene of heavenly holiday bliss; with a sunny terrace and large lawn to enjoy.

A private garage easily enables guests to keep a car here, whilst the nearby amenities of Menaggio are just a 6 minute drive away. The beautiful central lake town offers a wealth of supermarkets, delicatessens and grocery shops to complement a self-catering stay; whilst the array of authentic Italian restaurants and charming lake view cafes here provide the perfect excuse for soaking up a relaxed day in the sun.

The picturesque lakefront promenade leads to the family-friendly ‘Lido di Menaggio’; which is home to a paddling pool, a full-size pool, a beach lined with sun loungers, a volleyball court, a park, pizzeria, cocktail bar and more. Mini golf and another children’s park provide added amusement for younger guests, whilst the power boat rental, lake swimming opportunities and kayak rental here all provide the ideal way to get out on the water.

A host of boutique shops will keep shopping fans busy in the morning, whilst the nearby resort town of Bellagio (just a ferry stop away) and the fashionable Swiss lake capital of Lugano (reachable by bus or car) offers the perfect excuse to shop till you drop!

Alongside the golf, tennis and hiking opportunities available up on the Menaggio hills, the north of the town boasts water sports, whilst the neighbouring Tremezzina shore offers easy access to the Villa Carlotta and Villa Balbianello attractions, the breath taking hiking routes, fine dining opportunities, wine bars and the luxury hotel spas.

Menaggio provides the perfect base from which to explore the other famous resort towns of Varenna and Bellagio on the eastern shore, and is also within easy reach from the popular ski resorts of Piani di Bobbio and Madesimo.

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.

Be careful!

  • 3 of 5

We liked pretty much everything inside of the villa. However, the garden is not well maintained, we seam to be their first customers of 2017 and they didn't bother to do a good cleaning of walkways, gardener didn't come a single time during 9 days stay (in hot days with no rain). Be careful with your personal belonging as house doesn't come with safebox, security or cctv. We went for dinner in Menaggio on our 2nd evening, and found the main door open upon returning back but didn't pay attention because the bottom lock didn't work properly when we arrived, so we thought we may not have closed it because it was broken. It was late and travelling with a group of 9 including 3 children, we went to our beds straight away. The next morning I found about 2.700€ in cash disappeared from my bedside drawer (part of it was my customer's payment), the other members of family reported that their luggage were just a bit "messy" but again they didn't pay enough attention in the night before. Then my brother found some US dollars and Russian rubbles missing from his suitcase. We called to the Happy Holliday Homes to report the robbery. After one hour waiting, George apperared but only accompanied us to the police station to submit a report. They didn't accept it's the management fault of not providing a safe place inside of the villa to store valuables like in most villas we stayed previously. And they couldn't explain who had an access to the villa keys. We wasted the whole day for police station visit only to get our stamped files (to claim for insurance). Though, the company's maintenance was fast to change door locks and provide us new keys. We decided that ruining our entire holiday of 3 families doesn't worth all that drama with relocation. We were waiting at least for an excuse, kind of compensation offer in a form of services - nothing happened. George only contacted to check about our departure time. I think it's a shame for such a big company to operate in this manner. I suggest you to choose another villa operator as this monstrous Happy Holiday Homes managing 700 villas as they say are too busy to pay attention to a single accident. Needless to say that there were no police investigation or whatsoever - so, be very careful staying in remote parts of Menaggio as our case wasn't the first and I'm afraid not the last one. Gangs are watching stupid tourists staying in unsecured house like villa Ritrovo. Police and property managers are well aware but do nothing.
